Just start walking daily for 30 min and continue taking low fat diet. As per latest guidelines carbohydrate should be cut from diet and include more proteins. For details about the diet you have to meet dietician for full evaluation and counselling. Usually if you follow low fat diet and regular walk it can be cured in 2 to 3 months.

if all reports are normal it may due to gastritis...you can do tests ECHO. Start with easily digested foods such as gelatin, crackers and toast. When you can keep these down, try cereal, rice, fruit, and salty or high-protein, high-carbohydrate foods. Avoid fatty or spicy foods. Wait to eat solid foods until about six hours after the last time you vomited

Exercising Post Heart Attack

DM Cardiology

I am Dr. Nitish Chandra. I am a director incubational cardiologist at Fortis Escort Heart Institute, New Delhi. I have been working here for the last 22 years. Today I would like to give a very simple tip after the heart attack that how much they should exercise.

This is a very common myth that after the heart attack patients should not exercise but after the heart attack treatment is over and the patient goes home, he should start exercising. Here, the patient says that, “We don’t have time; we are busy.” So the tip is that they should follow the Rule of 4. This rule means that they should exercise for at least 4 days in a week. During every day, they should exercise for 40 minutes and during that time they should cover a distance of 4 Kilometers. So this is what I the Rule of 4. The Rule of 4 means 4 times a week for 40 minutes each covering a distance of 4 kilometers. If a person does this much of exercise, then he can keep his heart healthy. So, you people should not have this excuse that “I don’t have time.” If you follow the Rule of 4, you can keep your heart healthy.

If you have any further queries or questions regarding heart and heart related illnesses, you can contact me on lybrate.com.

You are right, antifungal medicines do carry side effects if taken for long periods, this is the reason to shift to local ointments minus steroids at the earliest, talk to your doctor.
