I am sure his doctor can address his heart related issues due to high Cholesterol. We can help him if required but need to know the lab values of his Cholesterol and his Lipid Profile which should include his total Cholesterol, Low density Cholesterol(LDL), High density Cholesterol(HDL) and Triglycerides. Is he taking any medicine for his blood disorder? Once you give us all info, we can help you
