5 Symptoms Of Heart Valve Disease!

5 Symptoms Of Heart Valve Disease!

Complications in the heart valve occur when the functioning of the heart valve is impaired. Valves of the heart allow the blood to flow in one direction and prevent the blood from flowing back into the ventricles of the heart.

Heart valve diseases can be classified as follows:

  1. Valvular stenosis: This condition occurs when the valves of the heart does not open completely due to stiffness. As the opening is narrow, the heart has to work hard to pump blood. This condition may lead to heart failure.
  2. Valvular insufficiency: This is a condition where the valve does not close tightly. This causes some of the blood to flow back to the valve. As this condition deteriorates, the heart has to work harder to pump blood. 

Types and Causes of valve diseases:

  1. Acquired valve disease: The structure of the valve changes due to various infections or rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is caused by bacterial infection that had not been treated. It tends to occur in children and cause inflammation of the valve.
  2. Congenital valve disease: This condition usually affects the pulmonary valve where the size of the valve is abnormal.
  3. Bicuspid aortic valve disease: It is a type of valve disease that impairs the aortic valve. Instead of the regular three cusps, the bicuspid valve only has two. This may cause the valve to be stiff or cause it to leak.
  4. Mitral valve prolapse: This condition causes the valve to flop back when the heart contracts. This condition also causes the leaflets of the valve to turn irregularly and cause it to stretch. This condition causes the valve to leak.

SymptomsThe symptoms of valve diseases are as follows:

  1. Weakness: This condition may cause weakness and cause severe discomfort while performing daily activities.
  2. Palpitations: Symptoms such as irregular heartbeats, skipped beats and rapid heart rhythm occurs in this condition.
  3. Rapid weight gain: This condition can cause you to gain weight very rapidly.
  4. It may cause swelling in your ankles, abdomen and feet.
  5. This condition causes shortness of breath

Sometimes she have a little bit pain in her heart side . And she is also suffering from diabetes and the second thing is that she takes lots of tension. Is there is need of ECG . Or is this the symptoms of silent heart attack. please tell me.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Yes get ecg done plus other basic tests like echo, stress test, blood test for sugar and lipids. If silent heart attack is feared, get specific test troponin from a drop of blood from finger. Tell her not to take tensions as more than bad fats or smoking, tension leads to heart attack.

My 4 years old son is currently taking Colonodine for hyperactivity, he takes a half of 1 mg, twice a day. The pharmacist mistakingly gave him someone else's medication, Lisinopril 20 mg. I saw it was wrong and did not give it to him. My question is, What would have happened to my son had I given it to him? I'm furious with the pharmacy and plan to discuss this with them.

Dear friend lisinopril is used for high bp and for cardiac diseases. After giving this medicine he might be having low bp for a day or two but rarely fatal. My suggestion is you should surely warn him for the mistake but taking legal action will not serve anything. As he is also a human being and mistakes are bound to happen if you do something. It does carry legal liability only if it is done deliberately to harm your child.

On asking him about it he said that it's regular cholesterol and he has has been given medication for it. His cholesterol is 227 mg/dl and S.LDL-cholesterol is 164.4 mg/dl. These were highlighted as well. If you could just help me out to know what it is.in the report it was also highlighted to test this abnormality after every 4-6 weeks. Thank you. He does this checkup every year and it was the first time this was highlighted. Please help. THANK YOU.

Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, Cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter, fried foods etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. Your father should always keep his cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. He should avoid the aforesaid food & walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also he can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture FUCUS VESICULOSUS Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Something happens to my father sometimes during drinking liquid or laughing. He becomes suddenly red and unconscious even his breath stops. We have to push his heart hardly and sprinkle water to bring his breath again and make him conscious. He has visited many cario and neuro specialist but all in vain. Reports were normal. They said that they can only judge if they see live situation. This rarely happens. Only while drinking or laughing. It has happened 8-10 times in his life. What should he do?

CCEBDM, PG Diploma In Clinical cardiology, MBBS
Cardiologist, Ghaziabad
It is fainting attack due to stimulation of a specific nerve while laughing. Which last for a short period and recovers at its own. Though this may be very uncomfortable at the tine of attack but not to worry much. He can be investigated to rule out any ailment. Get BP, blood sugar, lipid profile, KFT LFT. Ecg. TMT, uric acid, thyroid profile T3 T4 tsh, intimate results on private chat for proper assessment.

What is the best way to control BP and sugar. Inorder fully control that. I need some best suggestions. Please help me out.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Following are the tips to control bp/sugar: 1-Losing Extra Weight:-helps lowering blood pressure and cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-improves metabolic activity and helps in reducing weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-, improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:- Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 11.Fresh vegetables and fruits:- gives essential benefits as these contain a lot of vital minerals as well as nutrients .Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible and a rich source of nutrients. 12- Avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads etc. 1 tsp(5 gm)is sufficient for a healthy hypertensive individual.

I am 22 year old jobless male. I am a mechanical graduate. I lost interest in life. I am not in present. I am very inactive. I have a lot of fear that I may lose in life. Always thinking bad things in heart. Please tell me any suggestion. I don't have dare to go in public and speak. Please tell me what should I do?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Dear lybrate user. Your symptoms are suggestive of you being in major depression. A person when in major depression has low neurotransmitters like serotonin in brain and thus is very difficult for him to motivate himself. He has a negative attribution style for almost everything around him which is similar to what you are having and yes you seem to have other risk factors of being unmarried and jobless. Lack of confidence and interest are further hurdels to motivate self for social interactions. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and get started on medications as soon as possible. Gradually over time cbt and other life changes may be brought about. With medications you will start feeling better by say 10 to 15 days from the start. I hope you take the step in right directions and get better soon. Take care.

Does olive oil prevent heart disease? Does olive oil prevent heart disease? Does olive oil prevent heart disease?

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Secunderabad
There is no evidence that one oil is better than the other in preventing heart disease. More than type of oil, limiting the amount of oil is beneficial. Apart from that healthy food, exercise, avoiding smoking, good sleep, relaxation all these complement each other in preventing heart disease.
