Brief Answer:
Yes need till it comes normal hdl ,cholesterol and ldl levels

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear
It’s good you control diet and fasting but use it intermittently and multivitamins should be taken if regular fasting is done. What is your exact blood pressure and once ecg should be checked . You are doing very good just keep it for a month and continue all meds as usual ,once cardiologist visit will be helpful for long term Do yoga it’s very good learn breathing techniques like sky with meds it will also give results if combined with meds. Yes untill ldl comes down and cholesterol comes down to normal this life style diet modification is needed .
