I am taking Aztor 10 mg for cholesterol. Now the cholesterol level is in normal. Can I stop the medicine right now?

Cholesterol: Treating elevated blood lipids is not a short term thing. If the diet and exercise have been modified and the lipids have lowered enough, that might be enough if continued. When diet and exercise need medication added to get the lipids down, usually long term or life long lipid medication will be required to keep the lipid levels from going back up. Talk to your doctor about your situation. ...Read more

Hai I am 24 years old man, have cholesterol level is 201mg/dl and sgpt is 94U/L tested before having food Is it normal or?

94 IU/L not normal: Your total cholesterol level is acceptable at 201 mg/dl, but it would be significantly lower in many young men your age. The more concerning thing is the SGPT/ALT liver enzyme. It is about double the normal (usual normal is 10-40 IU/L). Liver inflammation from excess weight, medications, or alcohol intake are most common causes, but more serious hepatitis could be present. See your doctor:) ...Read more

My cholesterol level is 206. What diet do I take to keep it low.?

More veg/fish, less.: If u r young and in general good health, 206 is very mildly elavated and if you have high level of HDL (good cholesterol) say above 60...I would not worry much about it (less than 200 = good). Balanced diet with more fish/veggies, less animal fats/cholesterol, and more aerobic exercise will do the job!

Good luck. ...Read more
