He’s married to a 47-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis and has two married children and one grandchild living nearby. He also complains of frequent eructation, flatulence, and indigestion after eating. He was told (when he weighed 30 lbs. less than he does now) that he could control his hyperlipidemia by diet.
