Control of disease: Other considerations would be to have an imaging study of your chest to determine if there is pulmonary involvement, enlargement of your vessels and heart. Exercising as approved by your physician and reducing trans fats is an important part of your management. Sometimes it takes time to notice an improvement. Lab values and studies are helpful in tracking your progress. Virtual consult at HT 2nd.
