Diabetes and hypothyroid also form independent risk factors for heart disease.
If not treated, these conditions can cause heart attack over time.
Hence, it is important to take eltroxin and metformin to treat these conditions.
Regarding your heart medications you are on multiple medications which lower your blood pressure.
You are also on 2 different cholesterol lowering medications.
It seems you are on excessive medications.
But I do not have the exact medical records.
Just to give you an idea, your blood pressure should be around 130/80 ( not too lower than that), your LDl cholesterol should be at or below 70 mg/dl, HDL cholesterol should be above 50 mg/dl; Triglycerides around 150 mg/dl.
Your blood sugar should be between 100-140 mg/dl most of the time, A1c should be around 6.5 to 7
Hence, medications should be adjusted to achieve these targets to minimize heart disease risk.
You should discuss with your doctor regarding the proper medication combination to reduce sickness.
It is not good idea to stop medication without proper discussion with your doctor.
