Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query and gone through your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

According to your height, your ideal weight should be 63 kg. You need to reduce at least 25 kg. Your total cholesterol count is high. General suggestions are as follows:

  1. Include almonds and flaxseeds daily in your diet.
  2. Take a high-fiber low-fat diet.
  3. Drink plenty of water.
  4. Take small and frequent meals at regular intervals of two to three hours.
  5. Avoid eating out.
  6. Include a lot of fresh fruits and green vegetables.

Sample diet plan as follows:

  1. Take two to three almonds, walnuts, and dates in the morning when you get up.
  2. Take sprouts, vegetable daliya, vegetable paratha, vegetable sandwiches, moong dal cheela, or besan cheela (Indian food varieties) with skimmed milk for breakfast.
  3. Take one apple in the mid-morning.
  4. Take two green roti with dal, green vegetables, curd or buttermilk, and green salad for lunch.
  5. Take puffed rice, roasted chana, nuts, and green tea at teatime.
  6. Take vegetable khichdi ((Indian food variety) and a green salad for dinner.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
