Diabetes and Heart Health - How They are Related?

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS

Diabetes and Heart Health - How They are Related?

Why should people with diabetes be extra careful of their Heart Health? What’s the connection? Diabetes is considered as one of the major controllable risk factors for cardiovascular disease. 

A Study conducted shows that around 65% of diabetic patients die from heart disease or stroke. The connection between diabetes and heart disease starts with high blood sugar levels. With continued high blood sugar levels i.e. high glucose in the bloodstream, the arteries gets damaged and become hard and stiff. Fatty material that builds up on the inside of these blood vessels can eventually block blood flow to the heart or brain, leading to a possible heart attack or stroke.

People with the below listed condition and lifestyle are at increased risk for developing cardiovascular disease (CVD)

  1. High blood pressure(hypertension)
  2. Abnormal cholesterol
  3. Obesity
  4. Lack of physical activity
  5. Poorly controlled blood sugars(too high) or out of normal range
  6. Regular Smoking

What is a Diabetes?
It's is a disorder in which your body doesn’t produce insulin in the required quantity because of too much sugar in the blood or high blood glucose. 

Symptoms
Frequent urination, Intense thirst and hunger, Weight gain, unusual weight loss, fatigue, cuts and bruises that do not heal, male sexual dysfunction, vaginal Infection in females, numbness, tingling in hands and feet. 

Connection with Heart related diseases i.e. What can diabetes do to the person's healthy heart?

  1. A diabetic who has had a previous heart attack has a much greater risk of having another.
  2. Diabetics develop cardiovascular disease at a much earlier age than others.
  3. Diabetics who have suffered a heart attack are more apt to die as a result. 

Prevention: More of a lifestyle change followed by medication under supervision of a doctor and a nutritionist is possible. The best way to prevent the development of cardiovascular disease is to prevent diabetes itself. General nutrition recommendations:

  1. Control your portion size
  2. Limit your consumption of saturated and transfats and cholesterol
  3. Setting reasonable goals for your total amount of carbohydrates.

There is no certain way to avoid heart disease and circulation problems, but there are lot of things to do to cut your risk.

  1. You smoke? Put a full stop.
  2. Do weight management and lose some extra pounds.
  3. Check your sugar levels regularly and keep your blood pressure in the proper range.
  4. Get regular physical activity
  5. Keep your blood fats and cholesterol levels in a healthy range.
  6. Keep your blood glucose under control live a healthy life with a healthy heart. Stay Healthy! If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

After testing I had been detected as vitamin-d deficiency. If we have vitamin-d deficiency then vitamin b12will also be less? Now a days a feel pain in various parts of my body mostly different parts of my chest, one day feel pain at one place next day in other part, is this due to vitamin -d deficiency or anything critical?

After testing I had been detected as vitamin-d deficiency. If we have vitamin-d deficiency then vitamin b12will also ...
Vitamin B 12 is a part of our diet and is absorbed in the gut with the help of Intrinsic Factor secreted by the stomach. Inability of body to secrete enough Intrinsic Factor causes poor absorption of B 12. This causes anaemia and neuritis. Vit D although a part of diet from non vegetarian food or fats artificially fortified with Vitamin D, it is naturally synthesized in the body in presence of sunlight. Poor exposure to Sun causes deficiency of this vitamin. The type of life we people are living nowadays, mostly keeping indoors, has contributed to this. Enjoy sunlight in the morning before noon hours when ultraviolet rays strike the body at a particular angle and save yourself from Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is mostly is due to Intrinsic factor problem hence dietary absorption is not possible. Such patients need to be given Methocobalamin a B12 isomer to replenish the deficiency. You need to take these vitamins therapeutically till the levels reach normal and then prophylactic doses should be continued for maintaining these levels.

Such foods include: dark green leafy vegetables, dates, jaggery, raisins, nuts, legumes, pulses, etc. Increase your intake of vitamin C rich foods such as berries, sweet lime, orange, etc. Vitamin C help is increasing absorption rate of iron in body.

Hi there. Dry cough associated with chest pain since last 2 weeks. I suggest you to go for a chest x ray becoz pneumonia or a pleural effusion needs to be rules out because sometimes they can present in a similar mannner. Also most of the times excessive coughing may lead to stretching of accessory respiratory muscles which may lead to chest pain. Also to keep in mind chronic acidity is a common cause of dry cough. Please consult a doctor if the problem persists. Take care.

My brother in law has LDL cholesterol of about 180 and he is 42. Should we be concerned?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
My brother in law has LDL cholesterol of about 180 and he is 42. Should we be concerned?
Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. High triglycerides and 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 .do meditation,yoga, 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,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Hello Doctor, From past few months (3 months) I am not feeling very great. I feel low in energy all the time and when I stand on my feet I feel like I have to hold onto something to be steady though I don't feel I am fainting or I will fall or lose my balance. But yes I feel like that I am disbalancing a bit. Secondly, I have this problem of heartburn and gas as well. No matter what I eat, sometimes I get severe heart burn and sometimes I am OK. Gas is constantly building whenever I eat anything. I would say that 65% after eating anything I get heartburn. Thirdly, I get palpitations and I think I have become very sensitive. Sensitive in the sense that whenever I am sleeping or resting on my bed, even a small sound or a bang or anything or even a slight banging makes me feel like my heart is pounding/dropping/ or something (dil ghabrana ek dum se). From past few days I got this pain in my chest (right side). Pain is not severe but it is disturbing and I don't feel comfortable at all. My stomach is upset all the time and some pain in bowel. I have got an ultrasound done, I can attach a copy of it if required. I feel low everything and I spend most of my time worrying about things or how to sort my life out. When I think too much these problems becomes intense and I feel really uncomfortable with all this happening. Headache is another issue, regular pain in temples of my head and itching inside my ear is also there. I have tried a lot of doctors but not happy with what they have suggested me. I would request you to consult or advice me in a best possible way please.

I have had orthostatic hypotension since 5 years .it was of sudden onset without any cause im right now 20 years old, recently I went to a cardiologist and he did 2 ECGs, doppler echo, thyroid function test, adrenal test and glucose test, TLC,DLC, Asotitre and all came back perfectly normal. My BMI is 20.9,BP at sitting position remains below 120/80, im not alcoholic and does not have any wrong habits. Why the hell I have orthostatic hypotension even my dad with LVH and diabetes does not have this condition, its completely weird for me to have it.

MBBS, Dip.Cardiology, Fellowship in Clinical Cardiology(FICC), Fellowship in Echocardiology
Cardiologist, Ghaziabad
Orthostatic hypotension is caused by a sudden change in body position. This occurs most often when you shift from lying down to standing. This type of low blood pressure usually lasts only a few seconds or minutes. If this type of low blood pressure occurs after eating, it is called postprandial orthostatic hypotension. Certain medicines and substances can lead to low blood pressure, including: Alcohol Anti-anxiety medicines Certain antidepressants Diuretics Heart medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure and coronary heart disease Medicines used for surgery Painkillers Other causes of low blood pressure include: Nerve damage from diabetes Changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias) Not drinking enough fluids (dehydration) Heart failure Lower than normal blood pressure in a healthy person that does not cause any symptoms often does not need treatment. Otherwise, treatment depends on the cause of your low blood pressure and your symptoms. When you have symptoms from a drop in blood pressure, sit or lie down right away. Then raise your feet above heart level. If medicines are the cause, you may need to change the dosage or switch you to a different drug. DO NOT stop taking any medicines before talking to your doctor. Certain steps to prevent or reduce your symptoms including: Drinking more fluids, increasing salt in your diet Getting up slowly after sitting or lying down Not drinking alcohol Using compression stockings so blood does not collect in the legs You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems. Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure. Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock. Certain medicines and substances can lead to low blood pressure, including: * Alcohol * Anti-anxiety medicines * Certain antidepressants * Diuretics * Heart medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure and coronary heart disease * Medicines used for surgery * Painkillers Other causes of low blood pressure include: * Nerve damage from diabetes * Changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias) * Not drinking enough fluids (dehydration) * Heart failure You can do a few things to prevent low blood pressure * Drinking more fluids * Getting up slowly after sitting or lying down * Not drinking alcohol * Not standing for a long time * Using compression stockings so blood does not collect in the legs Get these test done to find cause of blood pressure problems tests include Thyroid functions, ECG, ECHO.
