Dear doctor, I'm underweight, y age is 28 , weight- 48 kg, height- 169 cm. I underwent some medical tests. In this tests, my HDL cholesterol is 36 mg | dl and LDL cholesterol is 112 mg | dl . Because of anxiety, I'm losing my weight a lot. My question is whether anxiety cause many heart diseases? And which of those cholesterols will be reduced because of chronic anxiety and confusion? Is it very harmful to human health?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

Chronic stress is associated with most chronic diseases. You have mentitled about your anxiety. I am not sure if you are doing any kind of exercise on a regular basis. Regular exercise will surely help you wit anxiety. If need be you may consult a counselor and learn few techniques to manage and overcome anxiety. This will enhance your quality of life. Also your hdl cholesterol which is a good cholesterol is relatively low. May be because you don't exercise regularly. You are quiet young. Start regular exercise Join gym or go for run or even sport like football or tennis badminton would be good. Exercise will help you wit anxiety. It will increase your good cholesterol. It will also increase your overall energy level. Which will help.you produce better result. Only good things will come out of it. Remember that our best friend and worst enemy is our own mind. If you keep worrying it will effect you adversely. And instead of worrying if you take positive actions yoh will have positive outcome. Hope this helps Wishing you very best

I am diabetic and hypertensive. My morning blood sugar levels are being recorded high between 150-160 and 120 around 3 AM. I suspect it might be Dawn phenomenon or sneeze effect. How to get solve the problem? Please advise?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. M Ramprasad lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The dawn phenomenon, sometimes called the dawn effect, is an early-morning (usually between 2 a.m. And 8 a.m.) increase in blood sugar (glucose) relevant to people with diabetes.[1] It is different from chronic Somogyi rebound in that dawn phenomenon is not associated with nocturnal hypoglycemia. From above explanation it must be clear to you that your problem is not Dawn effect. Sometimes if night dose is high (whether Insulin or oral drugs) there may be a lower level of glucose in the early morning leading to hypoglycemia. That too is not present. What may be needed is proper adjustment of night dose and food intake. Thanks.

Coronary Artery Disease - Know the Primary Signs!

Coronary Artery Disease -  Know the Primary Signs!

Your heart is the most important and vital organ of all and regulates the flow of heart to all parts of the body. Thus, the valves and the arteries which take the blood to your heart are also an important component in ensuring that the circulation is constant. Thus, any hindrance to this process will put a lot of pressure on your heart and lead to more serious problems in the long run. Coronary artery disease is one such problem and can seriously put the health of your heart at risk.

What is coronary heart disease?
Coronary arteries are very important blood vessels, which carry nutrients, blood and oxygen to your heart. If the level of bad cholesterol is high in your blood, it will start leaving deposits on the walls of the arteries which are commonly known as plaque. This plaque will start building up over time causing blockage of the arteries and disrupting proper blood flow. Excessive build up of the plaque may then rupture the lining of the plaque. This will then induce blood clotting and further prevent the normal flow of blood.

Symptoms
Primary symptoms may include

  1. Shortness of breath: This may occur while you are exercising or performing activities which are mildly exerting.
  2. Heart beats very hard and fast: Your heart may beat very hard and fast, especially when doing everyday activities such as climbing stairs or walking for a prolonged distance.
  3. Angina or chest pain: You may experience pain in your chest as if someone was pressing against it with a lot of force. Angina is also triggered due to stressful activities or even emotional stress. It usually occurs on the left or the middle of the chest and may even be felt in the back, arms, and neck.
  4. Heart attack: Heart attacks are the most common and the most serious complications of coronary heart disease. You would feel extreme pain, akin to crushing on your chest, shoulder, or arm. It may even be accompanied by jaw pain, and sweatiness.

Treatment
Non invasive forms of treatment are always preferable rather than invasive surgeries or procedures to treat coronary heart disease, especially where the risk of serious complications such as heart attack are still on the lower side. Some of the treatments used for coronary heart disease are as follows:

  1. Making lifestyle changes: Quit smoking, reduce alcohol consumption along with consumption of regulated diet will automatically start cleaning plaque that has built up within the arteries. Losing weight also tends to help.
  2. Medications: Special medications can take care of cases wherein the deposits are still lesser and the plaque buildup can be removed without the requirement of extensive surgery. Anti-cholesterol medications are one example of this.
  3. Surgical procedures: These are usually employed when the blockage is severe and cannot be corrected by the conventional methods mentioned above. Some of the procedures are angioplasty, stent replacement, as well as coronary artery bypass surgery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist and ask a free question.

Hello sir my self Kevin, and my question is how to care the my father which is suffer from diabetes and Blood pressure problem?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr., if he has diabetes (high blood sugar) and high bp, then proper treatment with appropriate drugs should be taken. In addition he should take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on his ideal body weight (70 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. He should exercise for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. That helps better sugar control and also in reducing bp. He should consume less salt in the diet and avoid papad, pickles and extra salt while taking food. To control sugar level he should avoid sweets completely, avoid deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, farsan, high fat milk products and sweetened aerated drinks (colas). Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. If you are looking for specific drugs to be taken then please come in a private conversation with details like fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, lipid profile, bp readings, amount of walking done daily and dietary pattern. Looking at those details I will be able to give specific guidance, thanks for the question.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
1.Male boob is due to a medical condition called gynaecomastia which is some times seen in adolescent age group or young adults 2.It is due to elevated level of blood estrogen and decrease level of testosterone. 3.It is not serious and sometimes go away on its own otherwise has to be treated by medicine or surgery 4.It is due to excess accumulation of fat in the chest 5.Regular chest and arm exercise like dumbbell exercise and push up exercise will help reduce the gynaecomastia 6. Reduce intake of fatty food like red meat, cheese, butter, ghee, cream, whole milk etc 7. Avoid alcohol since it decreases blood testosterone 8.Apply Gynexol cream containing natural ingredients like aloevera juice,retinol, vitamin A, extract of Ginkgo biloba or take Gynexin pills containing green tea extract , caffeine etc 9. If no relief, consult surgeon for advice
