If Someone has a Heart blockage and doctor prescribed to do a operation and fit a Ring. Is this any harmful matter in future?

General Physician, Delhi
I think by ring, you mean a stent to remove blockage in the blood vessels of the heart, get it done if there is 1 or 2 vessels affected by blocks.

I am 40 years male, since 5 months, my Blood Pressure is more than normal. Its around 130-90 (/- 3) since then. Checking almost daily. What can be done? Already reduced the salt intake. Should I need to consult doctor and which specialist should I consult?

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy

130/90 is not too bad at 40. Good that you reduced salt. Exercise regularly. Drink plenty of water, cut down on oily food. Monitor once in 3 days. You can consult a general physician if you want.

I am suffering from type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and severe itching since almost 10 years. For diabetes I started with glycomet gp1 once daily, which is now increased to twice daily along with 500mg metformin in the night. I am worried since the dosage of medicine is increasing after every 2 years. Also, for itching I am taking anti-histamines. Also, I am feeling quite weak nowadays. Is there any better medicine or permanant cure?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Also weakness could be due to over restriction of foods. Diabetes is like a state of starvation for the body. It is not about restrictions but about a balanced intake of all foods. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Last night he had a sudden Pain in left shoulder joint and upper arm. Had difficulty in sleeping in certain positions. Pain reduced during the day with some pain relieving ointment. Could it be a heart problem?

General Physician, Noida
Heart's pain also feels on left arm, specially inner half and two and half inner fingers. It lasts for short time only say less than half an hour or less. If it lasts more than 45 minutes, it may get converted into hear attack with pain in left hand, nervousness, sweating and weakness. So, it may be joint pain or pain referred from abdomen due to some problem there or due to gas in intestines. Nevertheless, you may get trade-meal test done to acess your vulnerability for heart problems (coronary artery disease)

You are undergoing hormonal changes at 44, menopausal time women do have hot flushes. 40-50 is time for menopause and it never stops suddenly. Though few women may be lucky.

Hi. I am 25 years old. Used to smoke 1 cigarette daily. Stopped since few days due to congestion in chest and pain in throat. Yesterday night I had severe headache, so I smoke again. But today since morning I am having severe pain in my throat and chest. With little blood while I spit cough. Puffy eyes. Severe weakness. Please advice as to what should I do. I have a history of pneumonia which affected me twice when I was a teenager.

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Hello lybrate-user, with history of pneumonia, cigarette is like a poison for you already. Severe throat pain and chest pain might be because of some infection and before jumping to any conclusions and advice, I would suggest that you undergo an x ray as soon as possible. Also please take care of your lungs as you still have a long life ahead and you don't want to spend it popping pills for everything-stop smoking.

If you had an angiogram done, and there is a single vessal disease with no collaterals, surgery will give good releif. If you have collaterals, both angioplasty and surgery will be good. But final decision should be taken based on the angiogram pictures.

I'm a 47 years old male. Notwithstanding that myself being a complete teetotaller, I'd heart-attack when I was only 30 years old & suffered myocardial infarction. Last year my condition got so very deteriorated that I had to undergo a Heart-Transplant surgery at Chennai & recuperating since then. For first 7 months post this surgery, I was put on a steroid Wysolone-5 mg OD. However, this resulted in a weight gain of 10-12 Kgs until now, more particularly around my belly. Kindly advise me diet plan with a set of must-do exercises, which'll help me reduce my stomach pinch! Please note that I'm off the Wysolone drug now, but I'm still put on a very high dose of immuno-suppressants! Also, please advise if weight lifting would help? Please oblige Regards: Adv. Prasad Kulkarni Attorneys at Law.

Switch to low-carbohydrate and low-fat diet. In cereals, consume rice (without starch), rice flakes. In fruits, consume low-carbohydrate fruits that have low levels of glucose such as Apple, Pear, Blueberry, Avocado, Apricot, Grapefruit, Kiwi, Plum, Strawberry, Raspberry. Use Canola oil/desi ghee. Sugar intake should be between 5-7g. Avoid junk/fried foods/sweets. Weight lifting would help. But better do aerobics and play sports. These would help better.

Hi, your mom's fatigue could be a result of the medications that she is currently on, to reduce bp. It could also be because of some other issues that needs to be evaluated. I would advise you to have her checked up by her medicine specialist/ cardiologist as appropriate. Simultaneously, she will have to check her dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other greesy/ oily & fatty foods. Ensure that she streamlines her lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. If she is working, she would require to streamline her occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps. Post your consultation with your doc, you may connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a natural treatment plan that suits your mother in particular and gives her a sustainable relief.

To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes.
