Talking About Lipid.....

I was in Kota Kinabalu Shangri-La Tanjung Aru last weekend for this Lipid Talk courtesy of conjoint drug company. The venue was perfect for a weekend getaway...thanks to the sponsor.

The panelists were all the established consultant cardiologists in Malaysia, and we were discussing on high lipid management and treatment strategy and some of new studies in this scope of interest. Prof Sim KH , the NHAM chairman was also there. It was a great meet up with all friends and ex-colleagues all over Malaysia.

Dato' Azhari of IJN never fail to deliver his speech well. He was talking about the hsCRP changes after treatment with combined therapy vs statin alone.
HDL : High Density Lipoprotein (good lipid)
LDL : Low Density Lipoprotein (bad lipid)
5 things to increase your HDL :
1) Exercise /weight reduction
2) Niacin
3) Omega 3
4) Female hormone
5) Red wine (to non-muslim)

If you are diabetic, this will be your target of both LDL and HDL level... failing to achieve ..you need statin !!.. Come to me...i 'll give you for FREE !
