Take control of your Cholestrol

CGO, BHMS (Silver Medalist)
Homeopath, Noida
Take control of your Cholestrol
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that's found in the fats in your blood. While your body needs cholesterol to continue building healthy cells, having high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease.
Cholesterol is carried through your blood, attached to proteins. This combination of proteins and cholesterol is called a lipoprotein. There are different types of Lipoprotein in your blood:
• Low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL, or "bad," cholesterol transports cholesterol particles throughout your body. LDL cholesterol builds up in the walls of your arteries, making them hard and narrow causing Atherosclerosis..
• Very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). This type of lipoprotein contains the most triglycerides, a type of fat, attached to the proteins in your blood. VLDL cholesterol makes LDL cholesterol larger in size, causing your blood vessels to narrow
• High-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL, or "good," cholesterol picks up excess cholesterol and takes it back to your liver from where it is excreted.
How to know if you are at risk of High Cholestrol:
• Obesity. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater puts you at risk of high cholesterol.
• Large waist circumference. Your risk increases if you are a man with a waist circumference of at least 40 inches (102 centimeters) or a woman with a waist circumference of at least 35 inches (89 centimeters).
• Poor diet. Foods that are high in cholesterol, such as red meat, egg yolk, full-fat dairy products, trans fats, found in some commercially baked cookies, will increase your total cholesterol.
• Lack of exercise. Exercise helps boost your body's HDL "good" cholesterol while lowering your LDL "bad" cholesterol. Not getting enough exercise puts you at risk of high cholesterol.
• Diabetes. High blood sugar contributes to higher LDL cholesterol and lower HDL cholesterol. High blood sugar also damages the lining of your arteries.
• Smoking: Smoking damages the walls of your arteries and also decreases your good cholesterol.
Prevention:
1) Diet: Top foods to lower your cholesterol and protect your heart are:
a) Oats: Oats contain soluble fibre which decreases your LDL (Bad cholesterol)
b) Fatty Fish: Fish has no effect on LDL but eating fatty fish can be heart healthy because of its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce your blood pressure and risk of developing blood clots ,thus preventing Heart attacks.
c) Flaxseed
d) Walnuts, almonds and other tree nuts can improve blood cholesterol. Rich in mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids, walnuts also help keep blood vessels healthy.
e) Cook in Monounsaturated fat — found in olive, peanut and canola oils .
f) Eat whole grain breads and whole fruits to add fibre to your diet.
2) Exercise: Brisk walk for 30-60 minutes daily.
3) Reduce your weight.
4) Limit your alcohol intake.
5) Quit smoking.
6) Follow a Mediterranean diet which is Heart healthy.

Do not worry of the position of the baby at this stage, babies move position till late even before delivery and during labour. You carry on with your pregnancy as long as the head is the low position you can expect to have everything going normally.

I am 19 week pregnant and I have still not started feeling any movements of my baby. When will it start.
Hello, ideally the movements can be felt by 16-18 weeks of gestation so if its still not felt then you may get an ultrasound pelvis done to check for foetal growth parameters. Also this is the best time for level 2 anomaly scan.

There is no problem in having oral sex. Risk of infection and hiv or any other std is lower for oral sex than for vaginal or anal sex. Unless the partner is affected you r not going to suffer from any of these diseases.

Hello, unfortunately there is nothing you cam do here. Sometimes if pregnancy is unhealthy it can result in an abortion. The rate of abortion in womwn is around 10-20%, but most women go on to have a healthy pregnancy in the future.

I have suffering pain in breast from last 2-3 days and also pain in pubic from today Why it occurs and what treatment I have done.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Pain in breast when you are nearing your menstruation is normal due to hormonal changes and swelling, it reverts on its own and you can take analgesics and slightly restrict salt intake. Probably that also relates to your pubic pain. You can take some analgesics for the same.

Problem in conceiving due to irregular MC

DNB (Obst and Gynae), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons)
Gynaecologist,
It's not a rare problem. First you have to find out the cause of irregular period- often the cause is thyroid dysfunction or PCOS or prolactin. So, consult your doctors and find out the solution. Many people conceive after successful treatment. All the best.
