1) You need to bring changes in your lifestyle by starting with daily exercise like brisk walking, begin gradually and increase to 40-45 mins daily and take a diet consult with a dietitian for a low fat, low carbohydrate diet. Avoid eating high sugary foods like indian mithai and desserts. Quit drinking and smoking in case you do. If you are overweight please reduce your weight with help of diet and exercise. And follow these changes for 6-8 weeks and then repeat your cholesterol levels if still high then you will need addition of low dose cholesterol reducing medicine along with measures. 2) Also please get your sugar, Thyroid function and BP tested and get a baseline cardiac echo done as well.

Angioplasty - Know Procedure Of It!

Angioplasty - Know Procedure Of It!

Angioplasty is referred to as a cardiac procedure which involves widening the narrowed section of a coronary artery. Usually performed by an interventional cardiologist, this procedure is performed in a cardiac catheterization lab, short for a cath lab. An interventional cardiologist takes extra care to review the risks, in addition to obtaining your counsel prior to preparing you for the procedure. The physician also refers to your medical history in order to determine the amount of anesthesia that should be used.

What happens during the procedure?

Although mild sedatives will be administered to help you relax, the process requires you to remain awake throughout the procedure. 

The procedure of angioplasty involves cardiac catheterization. The doctor numbs the intended site through medications and inserts the catheter. Following such, the doctor inserts a thin sheath in your artery, oftentimes in your groin or arm. A long, narrow, empty tube known as a catheter, is then carefully guided through the sheath, through the blood vessels and into the arteries near the heart. 

A little amount of liquid is then injected through the catheter which is moved through the chambers, valves and vessels of the heart. This movement is then pictured with the help of X-rays, with which the doctors can diagnose the condition and working of the coronary arteries and the heart valve.

The surgical procedure lasts for around 1.5 - 2.5 hours but the preparation and post - surgical procedures may take several hours. A patient is usually made to stay overnight to be monitored by medical personnel.

What to expect before an Angioplasty?

Most people are made to undergo a blood test and electrocardiogram before having an angioplasty. Usually scheduled a day before the procedure, such tests usually require separate appointments. Usually patients are restricted to eat since 12 hours before the exam.

What happens post-procedure?

After the procedure, you will be instructed to remain flat for 5-6 hours without bending your legs, so as to prevent bleeding. The nurse will instruct you as to when you can get up from your bed. You may not be permitted to drink or eat until the groin sheath is removed as such can cause nausea.

According to the procedure, the doctor will provide you with adequate after care advice.

How to lower high triglycerides and what food has to be consumed for each meal especially for dinner.
Hi, in order to decrease your triglycerides you should include Whole grain cereals and pulses, fruits and vegetables, Whole milk and milk products. You need to avoid red meat and other organ meats, egg yolk, canned fish, foods that are made of refined flour, sweets and sugary foods, bakery foods and honey, oily and fatty foods, junk foods like pizza and burgers, alcohol, butter, ghee, margarine, coconut and palm oils. Mainly insist on having foods that are rich in soluble fibre like oats, apple, banana, pear, flax seeds, Legumes (kidney beans, navy beans, cluster beans, french beans). Losing weight also helps in decreasing triglyceride levels. Nuts like almonds, walnuts are heart healthy butt they should be consumed in moderate quantity (5-6) as they are rich in saturated fat.

Hello, Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. High BP if present needs to be treated with appropriate medications. Excess sweating is unconnected with it. One can use some medications which may be beneficial. But mostly it does not go away. There is hardly any treatment. Thanks.
