Dear Dr. Singh,

Re: Mrs. Lisa Mills, 52 years of age

I am writing to refer a woman who is at risk of developing coronary artery disease. Your assessment and management of her health risk would be highly appreciated.

Today Mrs. Mills came to / walked into my clinic for a follow-up, although she had no complaints. She admitted that she wasn’t exercising or watching her diet.

 On examination, her BP was 132/86 mmHg, but her BMI was high at 30.1 kg/m². She was told that her 10 year coronary heart disease risk was 11%. Additionally, a strong recommendation for taking regular exercise and a dietician referral were made.

Mrs. Mills’ check-up on February 3rd, 2018 revealed her being overweight with BMI at 28.62 kg/m². The blood test results showed an abnormally raised lipid panel, elevated HbA1C and RBS level. She was diagnosed with prehypertension, dyslipidemia and type 2 diabetes for which metformin and atorvastatin were prescribed. She was also advised to attend weight reduction program regularly. She had been admitted to ER one week earlier because of an attack of shortness of breath and palpitation. The only cause for concern was a slightly elevated BP. As her ECG and cardiac enzymes were normal, she was discharged home with a prescription of diuretic and her previous medications.

Mrs. Mills has a family history of hypertension, type 2 diabetes and myocardial infarction from which her parents died prematurely. Please note that she was a smoker 20 years ago.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me

Yours sincerely,



This letter will get about 400 points.
