I have recently had a angioplasty done around 1 month back (01st Aug 2016) with 100% blockage (thrombosis) on RCA. I am on medication for blood thinner & Cholesterol ie Brilinta, Ecosprin & Storvas/Reva. I always find heaviness around my chest and breathlessness at times. I do not wish to continue with above the mentioned medication due to its side effect in long run. Will I have to live with this problem ie heaviness in chest & breathlessness through out my life. Will I ever be able to live a normal life ie run, swim, eat red meat?

If blood pressure is not controlled after taking three or more drugs then it may be matter of concern. You should follow lifestyle measures rigorously to complement medicine. Loosing some extra kilos also part of it. Ask your docor to look for any missing factors like kidney problem or painkiller use etc.

HI, It is difficult to tell the exact duration. In some , the deposition may occur fast and in some it may be very slow. It also depends of the nature of the food intake. The more the intake of fats, the more faster is its deposition and blockage of the arteries.

First try diet and exercise measure for 4 weeks. Then repeat lipid profile and based on that it will be decided that u need medications in addition. For diet - Add vegetables and Fruits (as per your renal needs) in your diet, decrease sugar, fried food and carbs and improve your eating patterns. For details consult a dietician. For exercise - Start with brisk walking and target to increase it upto 40 mins daily. Also get your sugar and thyroid evaluated.

You have told the answer to your query in your question that acidity increase with paranths and puri. Cut down on fats and take soothing diet like milk or curds and never remain empty stomach for long hours or eat a lot for 1 meal a day for diet control. Do drink green tea or clear soup or chaach after 2 hours to wash away collected acids. Remain active. Exercise does help in digestive process.

Hello dear patient. 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. Change life style . Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Dear lybrate user. I see you are only 28. You must have been diagnosed hypertensive just because of your stress and life style. There may not be any negative physical health conditions associated with hypertension. Moreover, the more you try to reduce your hypertension, the more you are becoming anxious, and therefore, actually worsening your hypertension. Therefore, please don't worry. Physical exercise, controlling the salt intake, controlling stress and anxiety, changing life style, being happy etc can clear the whole problem. I suggest online health counseling. Take care.

Ayurvedic Strategic Lifestyle Changes for Lowering Cholesterol

Ayurvedic Strategic Lifestyle Changes for Lowering Cholesterol

Ayurveda emphasis that a disciplined diet and exercise plan can help lower ldl and improve hdl.

Here are a few time tested strategies that you may adopt to bring total cholesterol lower and keep it that way

1. Walking 2 miles in 30 minutes 3 times a week constitutes a moderate level of aerobic exercise. That may be enough to raise your hdl cholesterol by 1 to 3 points (higher is better) and lower your ldl cholesterol (lower is better).

If you can't get in a 30-minute block of exercise all at once, do a few minutes of exercise here and there throughout the day (climb the stairs at work, walk around the block on your lunch break, park and walk). Researchers have demonstrated that exercise even without weight loss can have a positive impact on improving cholesterol levels. It is the amount of activity, and not necessarily any changes in fitness or intensity of exercise that is important for cholesterol improvement and decreasing the risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

2. Do deep breathing exercise for 10 min daily. It helps refresh your system and is an effective distress technique too.

3. Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily

4. Quit smoking. Smoking lowers hdl cholesterol levels and increases the tendency for blood to clot

5. Avoid alcohol.

Diet

6. Start your day with fresh fruits and high soluble fibre grain such as oats

7. Eat plenty of vegetables, esp green leafy vegetables, fruits and whole pulses. Certain foods really do have health benefits for controlling cholesterol and overall heart health beyond providing basic nutrition.


    Broccoli
    Fish or fish oil
    Green leafy vegetables
    Oranges or orange juice
    Carrots
    Garlic
    Fiber oats/oat bran/oatmeal


8 take enough good fat in food, don't avoid fat. Sesame oil, olive oil, rape seed oil are healthy.

9. Garlic- one or two cloves before your breakfast is beneficial in boosting hdl

Turmeric and curry leaves can be used as spices in various foods.

Isabgol (psyllium husk) at bedtime is also beneficial in boosting hdl

Medicine

10. Arjuna, guggulu can be added as medication on ayurvedic physician advice

Conventional aspects

The ncep national cholesterol education program has recommended a therapeutic lifestyle-change diet, which should be incorporated in the treatment of all patients. The following are recommendations:


    Patients should reduce their intake of saturated fats to less than 7% of their total calorie (energy) intake. Their cholesterol intake should be reduced to less than 200 mg/d. Trans fatty acids (the hdl-lowering, ldl-raising fats) should be kept to a minimum. Polyunsaturated fats should constitute up to 10% of total energy intake, and monounsaturated fats, up to 20% of total energy intake. Total fat intake, therefore, should be in the range of 25-35% of total energy intake.
    Carbohydrates (complex carbohydrates from grains, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables) should constitute 50-60% of total energy intake.
    Patients should consume 20-30 g/d of fiber.
    The protein content should be approximately 15% of total energy intake.
    In order to maintain a desirable body weight and to prevent weight gain, the total amount of energy consumed must be balanced in terms of energy intake and expenditure.

I am suffering from eosinophilia since last 4-5 years. I most often suffer from severe congestion, breathing problem and windpipe swelling during the starting of summers. I tried various kinds of allopathic treatment for this. I tried homeopathy as well. But nothing helped much. Please recommend a proper treatment that can treat this from the root. Thankyou!

You are having bronchial asthma, eosinophilic variety. Treatment is very simple. Avoidance of allergens or triggers which increase your symptoms and regular use of inhaler containing bronchodilator and corticosteroids is the best treatment. Safe also. Treat coexisting conditions like sinus and acid reflux.
