How To Deal With High Cholesterol?
Assalamualaikum good morning,
Good morning Astriani, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
High cholesterol or in medical language referred to as hypercholesterolemia, is a condition that can only be stated if it has been proven that cholesterol levels have increased above normal values, as in the case of your father.
This condition itself cannot be made solely based on complaints because in general hypercholeterolemia does not cause complaints or if there are, the complaints are not specific and cannot be used as a basis for diagnosing the condition without blood cholesterol checks.
Regarding questions about cholesterol treatment, in general this therapy will not cause any feelings during the process, and is only characterized by cholesterol levels that gradually decline if the drug is consumed regularly and as directed.
As for complaints that your father may have experienced, these complaints might indeed be caused by high cholesterol levels but can also be caused by other conditions such as transient ischemic attack (TIA), stroke, muscle cramps, or spinal cord disorders, so it is highly recommended to re-check your father's condition to the doctor for re-evaluation and determine whether the condition requires continued therapy by a particular specialist doctor or not.
I hope this helps.
