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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I am addicted to smoke want ignore from that habit from past 2-3 weeks chest pain effects more.

I am addicted to smoke want ignore from that habit from past 2-3 weeks chest pain effects more.
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Coronary Angiography And Angioplasty - An Insight On It!

Coronary Angiography And Angioplasty - An Insight On It!

Sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy food habits result in many lifestyle diseases, coronary heart diseases being one among them. One of the top 10 leading causes of death, heart attack might scare you, and it is necessary to know the facts to avoid risk factors and seek the best treatment.

The coronary arteries supply blood to your heart muscle. But at times, they can become blocked owing to the buildup of cholesterol and other substances known as plaque. It can reduce the flow of blood to the heart. When the blood flow is entirely restricted, it may result in a heart attack.

Doctors typically recommend angiography during or after a heart attack or in the case of angina to find out about the condition of the heart and proceed accordingly. If any blockages are observed, angioplasty would be advised to improve the blood flow to the heart by widening the narrowed arteries. Read on to know further details regarding this.

What is coronary angiogram?
A coronary angiogram is a special X-ray test which helps in detecting if any of the coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked, hindering the optimal flow of blood. It can help your cardiologist understand whether you need any treatment such as stent or angioplasty or simple medical therapy. 

During the process of angiography, your doctor would numb a spot in the arm or groin for inserting a thin catheter into the artery. You will get the feeling of a pinprick, and x-rays would be taken as the fluid goes through the coronary artery. After the process is completed, your doctor would discuss the results of the test with you and determine whether you need to undergo angioplasty.

What is coronary angioplasty?
A coronary angioplasty is a process which is used for widening blocked or narrowed blood vessels that supply blood to the heart. The term angioplasty entails using a balloon for stretching open the blocked artery. But the modern approaches to angioplasty procedures involve insertion of a short-wire mesh tube known as a stent. This stent is permanently left alone in the deployed state to allow free flow of blood to the heart. 

Coronary angioplasty is often referred to as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or PTCA. The combination of angioplasty together with stenting is known as a percutaneous coronary intervention. Even though angina can be easily treated with the help of medicine and some lifestyle changes, a coronary angioplasty may be required for restoring the flow of blood to the heart. Doctors recommend undergoing coronary angioplasty as an emergency treatment after a heart attack. 

What are the benefits of coronary angioplasty?
The flow of blood through the coronary arteries is massively improved after the coronary angioplasty. Many people find that the symptoms and discomfort are improved after undergoing this treatment. For individuals who have suffered a heart attack, angioplasty can significantly improve the chances of survival.

So, with this awareness, follow the doctor’s advice for a complete recovery from a heart attack. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Given your age, you should be put on medication for cholesterol and you should also undergo cardiac evaluation to rule out any cardiac disease, given your back condition, an Echo, followed by Dobutamine Stress Echo will be better for you, rather than a stress test. Also change your diet, reduced sugar, carbohydrates and fried and junk food. Get a detailed Diet consult from a dietician. And if you can do start with walking around 20-25 mins everyday.

At your age of 60 years you need to take stock of your abilities. You are no more young or capable of learning new things fast. Talk to other persons of your age and join some group of elders and talk about your gradually failing capacities. At the same time retain whatever you still have. Try and maintain active life style with your abilities. If you develop anxiety while learning new things, go slowly step by step and take the help from your children or preferably from your grandchildren.
