My 82 yo dad has some health issues but under control: BP, bordeline diabetic, had a TIA 3 years ago (on plavix), also a broken hip 3 years ago. he is not very active but moves about. He doesnt eat a lot but I cant get him to eat the right foods, he doesnt care I guess. His belly is huge but the rest of the body normal. Sometimes I wondered if he is retaining water in belly but dr always said no. Heart a little enlarged but ok. Triglycerides are a problem, 300!! it just doesnt go down, he takes lipitor but we have tried other meds and he doesnt tolerate well.
What Can I do? what should I ask doctor to do??
Thanks, any suggestion is welcome.
