General Physician in Rawalpindi - Dr. Muhammad Awais Dawood

Yes they are much better than what were before. You need to keep her on routine meds, get her to do some mild physical activities and she will be doing great. You can schedule a routine 3 month appointment so that I can check her reports regularly and make sure everything is fine. Regards, Dr Awais

Her LDL should be around 70. Is she on any cholesterol medicine ? If not she should be on Lipitor or Crestor. May Allah bless her with good health. Aamin !

LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL. Levels of 100 to 129 mg/dL are acceptable for people with no health issues but may be of more concern for those with heart disease or heart disease risk factors. A reading of 130 to 159 mg/dL is borderline high and 160 to 189 mg/dL is high. HBA1C is better but still high so slightly increase insulin too and diet to be modified in n addition to cholesterol lowering tablets. Thanks

Assalamu Alaikum!
It's sad what your mother had gone through but good thing is that most of things are back on track.. It's good that she went successful angioplasty and I hope her heart functions would be back to reasoanble levels.
It's also very good that progress in HbA1C show that you people are putting lots of efforts and her compliance to treatment is good, but persistance is very important. If HbA1C is brought below 7, would be even better.
Her lipid profile is reasonable with good HDL showing cardiac safety, but her LDL needs to be lowered down as well. Statin and heart medicines should be continued and all the labs should be repeated after 3 months. Wishing her a healthy life ahead. Regards

As you have got some really good answers but I just want to add one thing and that is her sugar control need to be slowly as risk of hypoglycemia (suddenly low sugars) is very high in older population so it is not just living but healthy living, that matters .so instead of keeping her on very strict parvaiz which is very common practice, give her healthy choices in eating plus gradual physical activity of 15-30 mins. Or amount she can tolerate wel without any problems of breathing

Although lipid profile ( cholesterol, HDL ) might’ve been improving. A strict control is still required. HBA1c is in range for any patient suggesting this type of cardiovascular history.

Member of Marham-Forum

Yes sir thes are satisfactory and good levels for her condition. Best wishes

Member of Marham-Forum

hbaic shows diabetes control for 2 to 3 months overall... one need to check fasting as well as random sugar levels so that her sugar level may not drop to dangerous level. and other factors like Renal functions need to be checked . dietary intake.so it need detail physician check up. online ans is not enough i guess.
