How can I prevent heart diseases? In last few days I am feeling a pain in the right side of my heart. What would be the reason?

Heart is present on the left side of chest whereas you experience pain in r. Chest. So I think you are not clear regarding your question. But pain in r. Side of chest is suggestive of either a muscular pain, neuralgic pain or some chest infection. The correct diagnosis can be made only after physical examination. Through lifestyle changes like smoking cessation, healthy eating, exercise, and managing diabetes, blood pressure and stress, you can greatly reduce your chance of heart disease.

All the above are due to hyperacidity. If you are constipated take some medicine for constipation and for reducing acidity, follow food discipline like avoiding spices, chillies and out side food. Take regular and timely meals and donot take full stomach keep atleat 1/4 stomach empty. Take plenty of water a minimum of 2.5 - 3 litres of water throughout the day. Take fibre containing food like cucumber, carrot etc. With each meal. Avoid execissive tea/coffee, if you are taking donot take on empty stomach. Have regular physical activity like morning walk/yoga etc. Follow these and acidity levels will be within permissible limits.

Dear lybrate user, you are stressed out and you know that you are stressed out. The problem is that stress becomes more and more difficult to manage when we start accepting that particular situations and activities will bring back the stress in us. In your case it is talking with another person. So you know that when you talk to somebody you will have shivering and high heart rate and since you have already observed this thing about yourself-this has become a recurring phenomenon in your life. First of all dissociate yourself with this fact by again in again repeating this activity and situation. Don't avoid talking with people. In fact make it a habit to talk to as many people as possible. You will have initial difficulty but as and when you continue giving yourself the same situation the difficulty in managing that situation will keep on fading and one day it will completely vanish. This is the best way that you can manage and conquer your fears. Regards

It could suggest pneumonia or some form of infection in the right lung. But the clinical history is very important. Do you have fever and if so since how long? Do you have cough with expectoration? Is there a histor of tuberculosis?

I am a 47 years female with hypothyroidism (Since 10 years), diabetes (since 3 years) and hypertension. hypothyroidism is due to hashimoto where antibodies are present and presently taking Selenium supplement to reduce antibodies. Taking Eltroxin 125 mcg daily as thyroid replacement. My Diabetes is as such well controlled, my last HbA1c was 6.3% which has increased from 6.1% and I found that my PPBS stays higher especially after breakfast. It goes beyond 200 mg/dl. Sometimes even around 290! I have discovered that same thing if I eat in lunch, PPBS is less around 140-150 or sometimes even less than 120 mg/dl. PPBS after dinner is between the two ranges. I.e. Around 160-180. My main question is whether it is advisable to eliminate wheat and rice completely from the diet to reduce PPBS levels? It is difficult to do that since it is our staple diet and is contained in all items. I am taking Metformin 1 g morning and evening and skip taking Metformin when I avoid dinner. I am also taking Diabecon DS tablet which is shown to reduce FBS and PPBS levels considerably because I confirmed it by stopping it for about 10 days, though I was taking Metformin, my FBS and PPBS levels shoots up like anything. Once I started taking Diabecon DS again, both FBS and PPBS levels reduced considerably. My last fasting insulin was 9.93 and fasting glucose 100 mg/dl gave 1.33 as Insulin resistance and 90% Beta cell function by Homa 2 calculator as found on internet which is widely used to measure IR. Now, people who advocate Low Carbohydrate High Fat diet on diabetes forum, says residual circulating insulin should be reduced for which you need to lower your carbohydrate intake. I was told that fasting insulin should be <5 and if Blood sugar control is difficult with this value, it can be <7 but not more than that as more insulin causes more fat storage and ultimately pancreas are whipped to secrete insulin by some drugs. I was taking Glycomet GP-1 forte once in the morning but was getting hypoglycemia since 6 months due to glimepiride in it which was increasing insulin levels, so stopped taking it and now not getting any hype episodes. It is known from various research sites on internet that Gymnema extract (Meshashringi, Gurmar) is very effective in reducing FBS and PPBS levels, but increase insulin levels. So, is it advisable to take Gymnema extract (Ayurvedic medicine) which helps a lot in reducing FBS and PPBS levels? I am taking Arkamin for hypertension once in the morning. So, my question is, is it necessary to reduce carbohydrate intake to 20% which comes to around 100g of carbs each day? People say, since we diabetics cannot process carbs efficiently, we need to reduce it's consumption to around 100g or less for good diabetic control. What should be ideal PPBS level after meals? And What should be fasting insulin level?

Both dm and cardiac problems are related to each other. As in dm metabolic disturbances causes your cholesterol increment with long standing many years of dm causes loss of sensation we called it as diabetic neuropathy. To prevent all such complications is not possible with single allopathy medicine. Also u should start some ayurvedic medicine we have quality medicine contact if possible. Also you must start some yogasanas with pranayama.

My mother is suffering from sugar and blood pressure problems please advice me what to do to cure this problem?
Mr Vipul, Diabetes mellitus and hypertension both conditions can only be controlled by appropriate treatment with drugs, die,t exercise.and weight control. There is no cure for these conditions.Treatment has to be for life time. Drug selection and dosage will depend on individual patient, sugar and BP level. Similarly dietary advise also has to be very specific and induvidualised. So you may come in a private conversation with all the details like fasating and Pp sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP reading, dietary pattern, weight and height. There I will be able to give specific advice .

Benefits of Drinking Warm Water

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), PGDHHM
General Physician, Ganderbal
Benefits of Drinking Warm Water
Heart attacks and
Drinking warm
Water.

Study shows reasons why chinese and japanese are more healthy inspite if they having weaker genes than indians.

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal,
But about heart attack's. The chinese and japanese drink hot tea with their
Meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt
Their drinking habit while
Eating. For those who like to drink cold water, this
Article is applicable to
You. It is very harmful to have cold drink/water during a meal. Because,
The cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you
Have just consumed. It will
Slow down the digestion. Once this'sludge'
Reacts with the acid, it will break down and be
Absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats
And lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup
Or warm water after a meal.

French fries and burgers
Are the biggest enemy of heart health. A coke after that gives more power to
This demon. Avoid them for
Your heart's & health.

Drink one glass of warm water just when you are about to go to bed to avoid clotting of the blood at night to avoid heart attacks or strokes.
