high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Today so many young men and women in the age group of 18-22 are showing concerns about heart diseases. Every heart beats in panic situation, if it does not I would label you abnormal. Socially shy, afraid to speak and some kind of a hyperchondriac who is imagining too many illnesses. You do not have a disease, it is all in your mind, have a life, chill, relax, read good books, learn some skills and remain occupied with fruitful activities.

I have diabetics and cholesterol so how do I keep my self feet and healthy? What should I eat?
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then it is essential to start appropriate treatment with suitable drugs. Plus take a balanced but restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. As regards eating following points should be kept in mind: avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and highly processed food products. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, that will increase your fitness and give better sugar control. When in good control fasting sugar should be around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If you achieve this you will definitely feel healthy and fit. With regards.

Dear Lybrateuser, -The pain could be due to acidity -have meals on time, avoid spicy, fried, junk food, do not skip meals, chew your food well, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals as it will keep you full & keep blood sugar stable, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime -have syrup gelusil, 2 teaspoonful half an hour after each meal -consult your physician if change in dose of ecosprin is required.

It is chest pain and not the heart pain but you may be correct, get your ecg and x ray done after a doctor's consultation. Heart pain will increase on any kind of exertion and mostly radiate (spread) to arm or jaw etc. Sweating profusely and sinking feeling are common with heart pain. You cannot tell with a finger where it is (heart pain)?-dr maithili mohan tripathi md, pgdcc.

Hi. I'm suffering from high BP since couple of days, then doctor advised me to avoid salty items as much as you can. Then again visit for 2nd check up after 1 week. If it will continue then you have to take medicine, which I don't want to opt now, because it should be continued then forever. So, please suggest some useful tips for the same to get rid of this as soon as possible. Regards,

Hi, lybrate-user. The alternative to medicine is called lifestyle measures, which are as follows. 1. Salt restriction: no added salt, no fried or salty item: daily limit 2.5 gm of sodium. 2. Weight control: by diet and exercise 3. Daily exercise: aerobic or light wt training: daily 30 min. 4. Stop smoking 5. Avoid stress and anxiety 6. Avoid alcohol or atleast moderate intake if you like to drink. 7. Sleep adequately 8. Correct any sleep disordered breathing like snoring 9. Eat healthy balaced diet 10. Avoid pollution if you can do these regularly and persistently then you can control your bp to some extent. Remember your goal should be controlling bp with or without medicines. Thank you and good luck.

Endoscopic biliary stenting is procedure to open a blocked bile duct. A stent is a small cylinder-shaped tube that widens your bile duct and keeps it open. A stent should keep bile duct open and stop bile building up and causing jaundice. You should be able to see the jaundice reducing within a day or two of having your stent put in. Unfortunately, stents can become blocked after a few months. If this happens it is often possible to unblock or replace the stent.

It is not good to have heart beat on the higher side like in your case , increase can be due to fear, fight or flight , face the situation and do not run away , do some simple exercises like walking , athletes have heart beats on the lower side. Get BP & Eyesight checked for headache

Hi, Take Rauvolfia 1x, 2 tabs daily morning empty stomach and 1 tab in the evening. Drink plenty of liquids and cut down your fat, salt and sugar intake. go for a morning walk daily at least for 30 minute. Take a sound sleep and try to avoid anger. Home remedies to Control high BP:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium.So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart.If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day.
