Sir,
I am suffering from high blood pressure and sugar.
Please suggest me.
To protect myself.
Perweenji, I am sure you must be on treatment for both these conditions. If yes please give following details : BP reading, Fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken with dosage, your weight & height, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. It is better if you come in a private conversation with all those details I will be able to give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines like : Take a restricted diet that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of exercise. Exercise daily for 1 hour, brisk walking is a best option. Reduce salt intake to about 2.3 g / day. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Avoid tobacco in any form and also alcohol.

high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . for c t angiography you can go any ct scan center near by you.

1. Small vsd closes spontaneously by itself as the child grows. 2. In your case large vsd which requires surgery in future. 3. Surgery done perfectly, will not cause any problem in future.

Which type of Angioplasty system is better making hole in Radial /wrist access or in right upper thigh/ femoral access in view of a heart patient aged 65 years or please intimate the benefit/harm, Radial versus Femoral Access for Coronary Intervention.

Which type of Angioplasty system is better making hole in Radial /wrist access or in right upper thigh/ femoral acces...
Radial requires skill and is less traumatic compared to femoral which too requires skill but it has been there for a lot more years, the side effects of femoral are 1) bleeding through a malor vessel, there fore the leg has to be kept at a higher level with head side low for at least 6 hours & post procedure care takes longer to heal though in both the vessels it is just a puncture caused by a thick needle to inject dye to reach the heart vessels. If one is sure about the cardiologist (some places do give exagerrated opinions about their doctors on call) get it through radial. Regarding other conditions like constipation, make sure that the system is clean & person takes adequate semisoild food as nourishment, no ga is reguired but there is slight risk of vomiting due to pain reflex.

How can a doctor or a relative or a friend help a person who doesn't want to help himself. By smoking he has destroyed his heart and lungs and passed on second hand smoke to his near and dear ones. Tell him politely that besides stopping smoking he has to take extra care about diet with minimum salt and fats and do restricted exercise, remain cheerful and occupied.

For gaining weight you have to gain muscle. For that you have to eat optimum amount of protein which is eggs, fish, meat, milk and milk products, dal. You also have to eat good proportion of roti and rice with vegetables. Healthy fats also have to be incorporated. You have to eat atleast 6 meals in a day. Weight training exercise is a must. Whey protein can also be taken. But best results for whey is with weight training.

Hi, with pacemaker in heart it is not possible for her to exercise vigorously incase your concern is to reduce weight. Also obesity can lead to many other problems in body including aggravation of her present condition. In homeopathic medicines there is answer for this problem without any sideeffects meanwhile you can start a proper diet plan by starting your day with warm glass of water with lemon juice, in lunch having 2 rotis without ghee and vegetables starting with a bowl of salad. You can also include curd of skimmed milk, in after noon she can take light snacks like tea and buiscuits and tea without sugar if pt is having sugar prob, ending day with dinner having 2 plain rotis and vegables anda bowl of soup, she can have brown rice 2 times. Weeek in small quantity.

I got heart attack on 25th dec. doctors did angography and then angioplasty, they put two stents now on 20th april. I again did angogram as i was unable to walk. It shows there is blockage inside both the stents. Is there a solution for this in ayurveda?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bundi
Opening of blockage inside stents by ayurveda has not been reported anywhere so its not advisable to comment. However blockage inside vessels has been tried in ayurveda and long term treatment has often been heard with success. For details your reports and recent history needed to be known.

You are passing through stress which is bad for heart. Without being preachy, I suggest you turn stress into an opportunity to hope for good results which will work like good cholesterol to help the heart. Get investigation done for heart like ecg and halter tests plus blood pressure and blood tests done for sugar and lipids. Regarding lack of sleep, do not take any medicines, depend upon foods like milks and curds that help get sleep besides giving get basic proteins. Get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum.

Little red spots inside your mouth are not connected to chest pain. they can be due to local infection , applly lotion clotrimasole on them, regarding your chest pain , you are only 20 and pain on chest can be due to local factors , lungs but everyone at your age gets worried due to a heart disease , write again the details of your symptoms so that you can be helped.

Alternative Medicine,
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) can cause leg pressure, swelling Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which a blood clot forms in one of the deep-seated veins in your body. Certain genetic conditions increase your risk for DVT, as do medical conditions (such as obesity or pregnancy) and certain medications. Lifestyle factors such as sitting for extended periods of time or smoking also increase your risk of DVT. Whatever the cause, we can help mitigate symptoms and lessen the likelihood of serious problems caused by DVT
