Dear lybrate-user, I can feel your anxiety and concern. Having multiple disorders require many medicines to be prescribed for each of the disorder. Diabetes can cause erectile dysfunction and many medicines can also lead to erector dysfunction. Also stress and depression associated with chronic multiple disease can contribute or cause erectile problems. It'll be prudent on your part to consult the doctor personally after letting him know proper history. This way he can help you better.

Please explain lupid profile and its necessity ?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Please explain lupid profile and its necessity ?
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.

Dear lybrate-user, Please get your mother investigated with Stress thallium perfusion scanning. This evaluated the functional status of heart and therefore circulation. Taking strong medication like you have mentioned can have arthritis as side effect. This too needs re-evaluation. Regards.

Five Cholesterol Friendly Foods

MBBS
General Physician, Patiala
Five Cholesterol Friendly Foods
1. Oats: It gives you 1 to 2 grams of soluble fiber.

2. Beans: Are rich in soluble fiber. They also take a while for the body to digest.

3. Nuts: Eating 2 ounces of nuts a day can slightly lower ldl, on the order of 5%.

4. Foods fortified with Sterols and Stanols: Gum up the body's ability to absorb cholesterol from food. Getting 2 grams of plant Sterols or Stanols a day can lower Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol by about 10%.

5. Fatty fish. Eating fish two or three times a week can lower Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL)

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to anxiety & stress - do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 20-30 min, do yoga, deep breathing, meditation for 5-10 min daily morning - have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables - sleep well for at least 7-8 hrs at night to relax your mind & body - destress by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby - if still not much improvement then you may require investigations, consult a doctor.

Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having body pain and laxity through out. To improve your immune system you have to take more haemoglobin in your diet, initially you can improve your diet and if not successful then you can take medicines to improve the immunity. It is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. Whenever you do breathing in and out you will feel pain in the upper back, middle back and also the pain will radiate upwards until the shoulder and also up to the chest. You might feel chest congestion and tightness and that be due to gastric trouble. Kindly do breathing exercises which might help you to get reduced with pain in the back and shoulder. Drink hot water to reduce the gastric trouble. Kindly consult gastroenterologist if you doesn’t improve.
