There's something called balance diet in medical fraternity.
And consuming fat like butter cheese and ghee is necessary for good health.
Roughly you can have ghee or butter or cheese upto 10-20 grams daily
Hopefully your questions is answered.
Latest research and evidence based studies point out towards health benefits of both Desi-Ghee and Coconut oil. In fact you should consume these in place of refined oils but take care that the quantities need to be monitored.
Hi lybrate-user, Mantoux test detects previous exposure to tuberculosis. A positive Mantoux test cannot be used to diagnose active tuberculosis. Anti-tuberculous therapy is generally indicated to treat active tuberculosis. Active tuberculosis is said to be present when the affected person has signs and symptoms compatible with an active disease (this will depend on the site of the body affected). It appears from the description provided by you that you do not have active disease. Latent tuberculosis - where the person previously exposed to tuberculosis may harbour some bacteria in a dormant state is generally not an indication for anti-tuberculous therapy unless the person is at significant risk of disease reactivation due to underlying conditions (defects in immunity due to disease or medication). For occupational reasons screening for active TB is indicated, however treatment is generally recommended only for those with active disease. Some anti-tuberculous medications may interfere with contraceptive pills due to drug interactions however, if chosen carefully they do not generally interfere with pregnancy. It is better that you get a second opinion from a specialist experienced in the management of tuberculosis. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query.
Triglycerides (TGL) 220 mg/100 ml, is not of any concern. There is really no need to take any treatment for that. However, since you are having hypothyroidism, it is necessary to achieve strict control of TSH, it should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from any of the symptoms of that condition. Uncontrolled or poorly controlled hypothyroidism does affect lipid profile also. Good regulate exercise, weight control and avoiding saturated fats, will help in reducing TGL level. Thanks.

Cholesterol 240 is not a disease, so don't worry. Better not measure cholesterol anymore, not useful, only a fashion. Balanced diet, ample rest, reduce sugar jaggery alcohol, tobacco and starchy foods. Take mild exercise, and your health will be fine for very long time. If you don't learn anything else about health, you will be fine. If you learn anything else, it will probably be incorrect and harmful.
