Hi. you have pain in your chest over left side. Which increases on deep inspiration rite my question to you is. 1. How long it is paining. 2) nature of pain. Like stabbing pain. Pin point pain. Dull pain. Squeezing pain. 3) your lifestyle. Drinking. Smoking. 4) does your pain radiate to your arms. Or its just localised. Do write me in private. For better assesment n advice.

You have a typical indian lipid profile with more triglyceride than cholesterol. Please mention your ldl and hdl level as well. You are hypertensive but non diabetic. So, I have to calculate risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease before recommrnding any medication. Meanwhile, you have to follow restriction of fats and oils. Fish oil is beneficial for you. Exercise regularly.

Shaking that gets worse when you try to maintain one position? a family history of tremor? as many as one in four people develop essential tremor as they age. You are more likely to develop essential tremor if you have a parent or sibling with the condition. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

One serving of meat or fish is about what fits in the palm of your hand. One serving of fresh fruit is about the size of your fist. Load your plate with fruits and vegetables -- five to nine servings a day -- to help lower LDL "bad" cholesterol. Antioxidants in these foods may provide the benefit. Or it may be that when we eat more fruits and veggies, we eat less fatty foods. Either way, you'll also help lower blood pressure and maintain a healthy weight. Foods enriched with plant sterols, such as some margarine spreads, yogurts, and other foods, can also help lower LDL cholesterol. Need a snack? A handful of nuts is a tasty treat that helps in lowering cholesterol. Nuts are high in monounsaturated fat, which lowers LDL "bad" cholesterol while leaving HDL "good" cholesterol intact. We all need a little fat in our diet -- about 25% to 35% of our daily calories. But the type of fat matters. Unsaturated fats -- like those found in canola, olive, and safflower oils -- help lower LDL "bad" cholesterol levels and may help raise HDL "good" cholesterol. You need carbohydrates for energy, but some do your body more good than others. Beans, and whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, and whole wheat, have more fiber and raise sugar levels less. These help lower cholesterol and keep you feeling full longe Aerobic exercise ("cardio") such as brisk walking lowers risk of stroke and heart disease, helps you lose weight, and keeps bones strong. If you're just starting out, try a 10-minute walk and gradually build up from there.

Mr. lybrate-user Sunder, From your query nothing is clear except knowing that you have diabetes (type not mentioned), actual BP readings not given, nothing can be made out about the issue with your eyes. So please give following details: current fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, present treatment with dosage, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and preferably come in a private conversation, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

Your blood pressure rises with each heartbeat and falls when your heart relaxes between beats. While BP can change from minute to minute with changes in posture, exercise, stress or sleep, it should normally be less than 120/80 mm Hg (less than 120 systolic AND less than 80 diastolic) for an adult age 20 or over.Typically more attention is given to the top number (the systolic blood pressure) as a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease for people over 50 years old. In most people, systolic blood pressure rises steadily with age due to increasing stiffness of large arteries, long-term build-up of plaque, and increased incidence of cardiac and vascular disease.

I had some diagnosed health issue started from last one year. Today again I felt like my hand veins becoming stiff, heart beat slow and light headed. I had two glasses of hot hot water then everything started to come normal. Two months back I had done blood tests, LFT, stomach scan, ECG, Echo cardiogram, treadmill, stomach scan, ECG, Echo cardiogram, Threadmill test and blood sugar test. All reports are perfectly normal. Physician told it as a acidity. I am scared why I feel like this often and do I have any serious health issue? Do I need to do any other tests?

Why the problem of heart attack raise in human?

MD - Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
Why the problem of heart attack raise in human?
Dear , heart attack is medically termed as myocardial infarction which is attributed due to clogging of blood vessels which supply oxygenated blood to the heart. Due to change in life style we have started developing hyperlipidemias (cholesterol or fat in blood) when attributed with stress and blood pressure these create blocks in the heart vessels. Gradually the blood supply to the affected portion stops causing heart attack. The key is to eat and live healthy.
