You may be suffering from bppv (benign positional vertigo). It is usually triggerred by sudden change in position. Cause is disturbance in flow of endolymph in semicircular canals of our ear. Diagnosis is easily done by hallpike /head roll test. Treatment is certain exercises like epley's maneuver. Certain antihistaminic drugs may help.

Things To Know About Rheumatic Heart Disease

Things To Know About Rheumatic Heart Disease

Some people have a sore throat which they think will go away sooner rather than later. Well, while it may not seem serious, rheumatic heart disease means that it could potentially be! But, how exactly?

A sore throat usually comes about on account of bacteria affecting the region of the throat.

Sometimes what can happen is that the same bacteria can go all the way to the heart and damage the valves of it. This is very serious as the health of a person fundamentally depends on the health of his or her heart!

When a sore throat does not seem to be getting better even after about three days go by, the first thing which is to be done is to see a doctor. This is due to the fact that delays can result in the situation getting worse. As a result of this, treatment can get more complex. And who wishes to compound their own miseries, after all?

Children who are aged between five and fifteen years of age are at risk of rheumatic heart disease. Now, while it is true that children are likely to fall sick more often than adults as their immune systems may not be all that strong, a special eye is to be kept out for rheumatic heart disease. The general symptoms which a parent should look out for are a sore throat, a cough and a fever. The tough part is that these symptoms appear which a range of other conditions!

When it comes to knowing that rheumatic heart disease is what is affecting a person, a special blood test is taken and if there is a need, an ECG and some other measures confirm rheumatic heart disease. Penicillin is a wonder drug and it is used in the treatment of rheumatic heart disease, as well. It is the general form of treatment, in fact, and people with the disease are often put on a course of injections. This means that they need to have an injection every 28 days for a month so as to make sure that there is no further damage which can affect the valves of the heart. The importance of this cannot be impressed enough.

It is unfortunate that in many cases, people only discover that they have rheumatic heart disease once they reach adulthood. The valves of the heart may be leaking or significantly damaged by the time that the discovery is made. Is it not a lot better to save oneself from this sort of situation? If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

Hi. My husband is 34 years old. He has been diagnosed with hypertension. Medicines were not able to bring it under control. It was 220/140 .diastolic never came down below 180. He has been hospitalized now. Echocardiogram says that thickness of muscle in heart has increased. However everything else is normal. Renal Doppler also fine. I am taking care of him alone. Dr. please tell me the severity. And is it reversible. Will the thickness go back to normal.

The thickness and the heart muscles is side effect of chronic high blood pressure for a long time it's similar to muscle hypertrophy in the biceps when you do a lot of exercise daily which means that because your heart had to push against a high pressure it needs more muscles to perform this work that's why the muscles are thick. And initially these thick muscles obviously have more power to pump the blood against the high blood pressure in the blood vessels but as the muscles of the heart become thicker and thicker they keep expanding inside the heart decreasing the filling capacity so so you can imagine if this keeps on happening although the force of pumping blood will be higher but slowly the amount of blood the heart can pump will decrease and that is the cause of all the problems in hypertrophic heart diseases. Unfortunately it's not reversible but with medications and proper Lifestyle changes you can prevent the progression of the disease and live a fairly normal life. And the most important thing to keep in mind is regularly checking your blood pressure and keeping it under the normal range.

As your baby gets bigger, the uterus pushes on the stomach making heartburn more common in later pregnancy. Do not keep stomach empty in morning eat in 30 minutes maximum after getting up and have fruits Eat several small meals instead of three large meals -- eat slowly. Drink fluids between meals -- not with meals. Don't eat greasy and fried foods. And spicy foods Do not eat or drink within a few hours of bedtime.in night have light food and mis vegetable soup at 7 pm after that avoid heavy food Do not lie down right after meals.

Heart Health: Ayurveda to Reduce High Cholesterol

Heart Health: Ayurveda to Reduce High Cholesterol

Ayurveda has remedies that can help you control cholesterol and improve heart health.

Cholesterol is something that the body needs to build and maintain cellular health. Technically it is known as a lipid and is a fatty or wax-like material that circulates in the bloodstream.
There are two kinds of cholesterol, and you have probably already heard about them, but they are:
LDL - this is the "bad" cholesterol that can cling to arterial walls and create blockages that result in strokes and heart attacks.
HDL - this is the good type that is going to actually protect you from heart disease.
We get cholesterol from our foods, but our bodies can also make it too. Hence this leads to high levels of cholesterol in the arteries.
In ayurveda- certain herbs, ayurvedic treatments and remedies can lower high cholesterol. These are:

- Garlic: Garlic is the most common herb that is used in Indian cooking and no dish tastes the same without it. Having two to three garlic cloves a day can break down bad cholesterol and free it from the arterial walls.
- Coriander: This green herb adds freshness, flavour and colour to any meal. Coriander is a diuretic that will flush out waste and even excess cholesterol.
- Tulsi: Tulsi disintegrates cholesterol from the arteries and washes it from the body.
- Guggul : Guggul is a sap from the Mukul myrrh tree. There are several products made from Guggul that helps to reduce high cholesterol.
- Arjuna or Terminalia Arjuna: Arjuna’s white bark has medicinal properties that dissolve cholesterol from the arteries.

Taking 1 tablet of 10m. G.Cholesterol lowering for the almost 9 years s.(taking Aztor 10 mg for the last 3 years) At times I take a break of 1 or 2 days. At times for a week Can such drugs be discontinued once cholesterol levels are normal.

lybrate-user you have been taking these medicines from last 10 yrs, so your hair loss is definitely not secondary to these. Secondly you may discontinue the medicine intermittently if you want, but then their effect will disappear and your cholesterol levels may get deranged, so if you discontinue the medicine repeat your lipid profile 6 weeks later to see if it has not increased, if it does restart. I am sure you must be taking diet precautions and exercising daily like morning walk, if not then please do so, that may help you lower your cholesterol medicine dose a bit. But even after that you may require to take these medications, they are relatively safe and have been well studied so don't worry too much about the side-effects.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your lipids all of those readings look to be pretty low. Both total cholesterol and ldl are fairly low, even hdl is also low. You have not mentioned about blood sugar levels secondly whether you exercise regularly. One of the reasons could be taking rosuvastatin 10 mg daily. It looks like there is no need of that drug at this moment. So you may discontinue the same and then check lipids after about 3 months. Also exercise daily that will also help. You also are close to be obese with a bmi of 29.41 kgs/m2, hence exercising should be beneficial. With regards.
