He should avoid bad fats and take only good fats in little amounts , he can have green seasonal vegetables and fruits as much as he wants , lemon and oranges and bananas are good sources of potassium , which is good for heart patients . eat little but more frequently . Bad fats are all tras fats present in biscuits , namkeens , cakes , street food etc. do not reheat the oil at home also , use any heart friendly oil and my personal choice is musturd oil for our style of cooking and soy oil for frying occassionally. Good fats are desi ghee and butter- 5 grams per day + a katori of dry fruits like soaked , peeled almonds , cashews , wallnuts- 5 to 6 pieces each and peanuts , one can make modifications depending on availability , otherwise peanuts are as good as others. fresh lemon juice taken with a spoon of honey with warm water taken on empty stomach in morning helps to purify blood.

Hello sir in their report shows, 'mild pericardial effusion RV side, Please advise.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Hello sir in their report shows, 'mild pericardial effusion RV side,  Please advise.
Hello, Mild Pericardial effusion RV side is associated with tubercular diathesis which is treatable by Homoeopathy by providing proper Characterized Homeopathic case recording for your individualized treatment else your problem will persist. However the related discussion is as under: Assessment of Pericardial diseases Although the purpose of the pericardium is mainly to protect the heart and provide lubrication, it also has important hemodynamic effects on the cardiac chambers. The nondistensible pericardium limits the acute distension of the ventricles and contributes to ventricular coupling: the distension of one ventricle alters the filling of the other, an effect that is important in the pathophysiology of cardiac tamponade and constrictive pericarditis. The pericardium is not seen normally on an echocardiogram neither is pericardial fluid. Therefore the visualization of either of these is pathological. Pericardial effusion Filling of the potential pericardial space with fluid or blood results in a pericardial effusion. When the volume of fluid is small, it can be seen as a black echo-free space present only posterior to the heart in the parasternal short and long axis view, and may be present only in the systolic phase (fig. 1 and 2). When the volume of fluid is more than 25 ml, an echo free space exists all around the heart throughout the cardiac cycle. When the amount of fluid is massive, the heart may have a swinging motion in the pericardial cavity.

Hi. After complete treatment of tb, many times some chest pain might remain. You need to talk to your tb doctor once about it. Generally, this pain subsides after few months duration. No more advanced investigations are required for searching the cause of pain. Take care.
