There can be different possibilities which needs to be ruled out. It may be gastric in origin or simply muscular pain. Or it can also be due to cardiac or respiratory causes. Most of the times such pains subside without any medications. So approach a doctor if it does not subside on its own and let the doctor check you.

I am a 47 years female with hypothyroidism (Since 10 years), diabetes (since 3 years) and hypertension. hypothyroidism is due to hashimoto where antibodies are present and presently taking Selenium supplement to reduce antibodies. Taking Eltroxin 125 mcg daily as thyroid replacement. My Diabetes is as such well controlled, my last HbA1c was 6.3% which has increased from 6.1% and I found that my PPBS stays higher especially after breakfast. It goes beyond 200 mg/dl. Sometimes even around 290! I have discovered that same thing if I eat in lunch, PPBS is less around 140-150 or sometimes even less than 120 mg/dl. PPBS after dinner is between the two ranges. I.e. Around 160-180. My main question is whether it is advisable to eliminate wheat and rice completely from the diet to reduce PPBS levels? It is difficult to do that since it is our staple diet and is contained in all items. I am taking Metformin 1 g morning and evening and skip taking Metformin when I avoid dinner. I am also taking Diabecon DS tablet which is shown to reduce FBS and PPBS levels considerably because I confirmed it by stopping it for about 10 days, though I was taking Metformin, my FBS and PPBS levels shoots up like anything. Once I started taking Diabecon DS again, both FBS and PPBS levels reduced considerably. My last fasting insulin was 9.93 and fasting glucose 100 mg/dl gave 1.33 as Insulin resistance and 90% Beta cell function by Homa 2 calculator as found on internet which is widely used to measure IR. Now, people who advocate Low Carbohydrate High Fat diet on diabetes forum, says residual circulating insulin should be reduced for which you need to lower your carbohydrate intake. I was told that fasting insulin should be <5 and if Blood sugar control is difficult with this value, it can be <7 but not more than that as more insulin causes more fat storage and ultimately pancreas are whipped to secrete insulin by some drugs. I was taking Glycomet GP-1 forte once in the morning but was getting hypoglycemia since 6 months due to glimepiride in it which was increasing insulin levels, so stopped taking it and now not getting any hype episodes. It is known from various research sites on internet that Gymnema extract (Meshashringi, Gurmar) is very effective in reducing FBS and PPBS levels, but increase insulin levels. So, is it advisable to take Gymnema extract (Ayurvedic medicine) which helps a lot in reducing FBS and PPBS levels? I am taking Arkamin for hypertension once in the morning. So, my question is, is it necessary to reduce carbohydrate intake to 20% which comes to around 100g of carbs each day? People say, since we diabetics cannot process carbs efficiently, we need to reduce it's consumption to around 100g or less for good diabetic control. What should be ideal PPBS level after meals? And What should be fasting insulin level?

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause...take sarpgandha vati twice a day...yogendra ras...akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension....avoid salty diet...oily food...lower your stress...do pranayama early morning

Dear lybrateuser, -Unless your mind is at peace you will not be able to concentrate & study well, one requires a peaceful, friendly & congenial atmosphere to do well in any field -your decision to change your college is justified as under mental disturbance & hostile environment you cannot do well, let people say what they want you should have faith in your decision, study hard & do well they will be happy with you & you also will come over your apprehensions about changing the college.

Hi, use the following methods: 1 - Include plenty of fluids (at least 8-10 glasses of water daily) and restrict salt intake in the diet. 2 - Drinking curry leaves (curry patta) juice 1-2times a day for 1-2 months on an empty stomach is found beneficial. For preparing the juice grind washed curry leaves in a mixer with about ½ - 3/4 glass water. Sieve and add ½ - 1 lemon juice and drink fresh. 3 - Include fresh garlic cloves or garlic pearls or 1/4 tsp garlic powder daily in the diet. 4 - Methi seeds taken regularly are found to help in stabilising blood pressure. 5 - Mix 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp ginger (adrak) juice and 1 tsp cumin (jeera) powder. Have twice a day. 6 - Include apples in the diet for a few days. It has a diuretic effect and thus brings down the B. P. 7 - Fruits such as mosambi, orange, peaches (aaru), plum (aloo bukhara), watermelon (tarbooz) are also beneficial. 8 - Consumption of brown rice is found very beneficial as it has very low sodium content and low cholesterol. 9 - Consumption of natural diuretics like coconut water, butter milk is very effective in regulating blood pressure. 10-Drink coriander (dhania) juice made from fresh dhania (same way as curry leaves juices) 3 times a day. If this is not effective, start having fenugreek (methi) juice instead (made from fresh methi) and if this is also not effective, move to curry leaves juice. Drink each juice for 10-12 days at least before you decide. If it is not working and then move to the next one. 11 - Last but not the least, rest, relaxation and good sleep are effective in keeping Blood pressure under control.

All organs including liver get affected. But its not over days or months. It takes years. Best way to protect your organs is to keep your sugar and bp in check by combination of diet, exercise and medication.

Blood in vomit or Haemaetemesis is a serious symptom, this could mean a bleeding varices or peptic ulcer. Alongwith chest pain maybe a sign of cardiac involvement. My suggestion to you would be to consult a good physician immediately and investigate the causes.

My daughter has one heart hole of 3 point. She is 40 days old. I want to know this is major or minor problem?
Dear Lybrateuser, - The condition has to be monitored as she grows - a hole can gradually close itself on its own as she grows, if not then can be closed by implant device or surgery - if closure is not there then symptoms like breathlessness, tiredness, turning blue on exertion, activity can occur - condition has to be monitored by a cardiologist.

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 .
