Good morning, I was diagnosed with IST in June 2018. Prior to that i was in the hospital with AV Node reentry when i was 17 years old. I am now 28 and have been taking pills for a long time and seem to be taking some more now that i have IST. I have had 1 ablation to cure the AV Nodal Re-entry, but after 6 years i started to develop PACs and they put me on flecainide.
REASON FOR THE DISCUSSION:
I went and had my blood drawn for a physical and this is the 3rd or 4th year that my Cholesterol and triglycerides are still high. The numbers are the same from the past years.
Cholesterol is 220
Triglycerides – 354
I take metoprolol succinate ER – and was told that the pills can cause the numbers to be skewed in the test.
I take 75MG in the morning which is before the test ( 2 hours before )
I need to know if this is right, what diet can or should i do?
I am 28 years old, 220lbs 5ft 10inches – walk the dog all the time – 2, 3 miles twice a week.
Thank you in advance for reading this.
