How to lower the cholesterol level and triglyceride?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How to lower the cholesterol level and triglyceride?
High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Keep cholesterol below 150. Take plenty of vegetable and. Fruits. Exercises. Avoid junk foods. Ghee dalda and vanaspathi is not good. Red meat and trans fatty acids very bad. Less salt and sugar. Olive oil for cooking.

I am experiencing chest pain, discomfort on left side (front and back chest, and left upper arm). So far, doctors have performed Echo (clear, no issues indicated), TMT (when the technician stopped it, it showed Max HR 152 bpm 83% of max predicted 179 bpm. Max BP 160/100. Remarks say -" Good effort tolerance. No Angina or Arrhythmia. No Significant ST-T changes found), Endoscopy (didn't show any ulcers or any issues, normal mucosa), and Ultrasound scan of abdomen (only issue as per report is Fatty Liver measuring 17.5 cms). However, I have been to emergency room 4 times during last 1 month due to chest pain, sweating, etc. Everytime, they did ECG and Troponin tests and then sent me home after giving Pantoprazole injection. Doctor says I don't have any heart related condition. According to him, I have" Non-ulcer Dyspepsia" that is being worsened by my anxiety and panic. He has suggested - Pantodac DSR (twice a day), Atorvastatin 10 mg (at night), and Alprazolam 0.25 (at night). My cardiologist says that since TMT and Echo were normal, there is no possibility of a heart attack. I asked him whether I should undergo any further tests like CT Angiography to rule out any blockages etc. He told me very clearly that I am panicking for no reason and I should consult a psychiatrist. He says that my pain is result of anxiety and panic. I tried explaining to him that I do get anxiety and panic but it happens after I get chest pain, sweating, and breathlessness. What to do now? Should I consult another cardiologist? Is a clear TMT indicator that there is no risk of a heart attack? Is a clear Echo indicator that there are no other heart issues?

Dear lybrate user, -you have undergone most of the tests & since they were normal the cardiologist has not advised further testing so do not panic & take the prescribed medicines, sometimes acidity also causes similar symptoms. -engage yourself in various activities like walking for 20-30 min daily, yoga, meditation & other day to day activities. -avoid spicy & fried food -give sometime to the medicines to take effect -if you donot find any improvement then go for a second opinion.

Hello lybrate-user your blood pressure is better than before but not fully controlled. It is better to get blood urea and creatinine tests done and add another bp tablet like ramipril 5 mg after checking the blood. This will bring blood pressure under better control. Persistent high blood pressure itself will make you tired and can damage other organs like kidneys. Relaxation in any form will help in controlling bp but you still need medicines.
