Treating the Modern Scourge of Coronary Heart Disease

Hi! I'm Dr. Saurabh Juneja, Chief Cardiac Surgeon at Metro Heart Institute and Multispeciality at Faridabad.

I will be speaking today on emphasizing the importance of prevention of coronanry artery disease. As we know coronary artery disease has emerged the biggest cause of death in the entire population. It causes more deaths than cancer also. So we should know about it and how to prevent it if possible. The younger population between 20 to 40 is being seen more and more getting effected by this scourge of coronary artery disease of which is like an epidemic in India. Because of the lifestyle changes, because of diabetes, because of smoking and because of the lifestyle which the younger generation adopts the stressful lifestyles and the stress with the corporate jobs. This causes tall and the heart. So we should try to reduce the risk factors which are very important in preventing possible coronary artery disease. So we can start with a very basic test like the blood pressure test which should be less than 140 systolic and 90 diastolic. Ideal should be 130 by 80. And how to reduce blood pressure and ensure that it doesn’t increase, a healthy lifestyle of fruit and vegetables and less of processed and fast foods will ensuring a normotensive patient and regular exercise at least 30 minutes of exercise, some kind of aerobic exercise 5 days a week is important for achieving this heart rate. How will you know that what exercise you are doing is adequate? Your heart rate you should be able to feel your heart beating, it should be fast enough and you will also be sweating at that time. So that is that will be a rough idea to know that yes this exercise is what you are doing is helpful. Just strolling is not helpful, it’s better than sitting on the couch but it’s not helpful. The second figure which we should know about is Cholesterol. Cholesterol should be checked. This cholesterol should be less than 200, the triglycerides should be less than 150, the good cholesterol the HDL should be more than 40 and the LDL should be less than 130 in a normal person or if in a diabetic should be less than 70. So again a healthy diet will ensure that yes the cholesterol is within the range. If it’s more than we can identify and treat accordingly by medications. Another factor is controlling the sugar, fasting sugar should be less than 110, and also knowing your body mass index is also helpful i.e. the ration of your weight and the height which should be less than 25. If it’s more than 25 one comes under over weight and if it comes more than 28 then one comes under obese. So they are more predisposed to heart disease. Smoking is a definite know, smoking per cig increases the risk of heart attack by at least double and when stopping smoking will reduce the chances of heart attack by 50%. So the importance of smoking cannot be overemphasized. So I would like to again emphasize that yes prevention and early detection of heart disease is very important and if we can identify any risk factor which are there or any problem which is there then we can you know prevented and treated accordingly by medications or timely stenting or bypass surgery.

So we should all get our heart checked and prevention is better than cure that is our mantra.

I had intercourse on 29th Jan and was dur with my period cycle on 20th Feb. But was late. I took homeopathic medicines but had only mucus and spotting. I also had low BP recently. I am 20 and have never missed my cycle except once when homeopathic med helped. If there is a chance of pregnancy, I need to terminate it ASAP.

As you did not had proper mense since january, you should do urine pregnancy test at home asap. If you r pregnant, it can be aborted with medicines only but prescription for that you can not get unless you personally visit a gynecologist. That spotting which you had could be menses also and only way to find out is getting urine tested for pregnancy.

not more than 1 yolk, as it contains approximately 230mg of cholesterol.According to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, your daily intake of cholesterol should be no more than 300 mg, and no more than 200 mg if you're considered at high risk for heart disease.

My age is 32 years and suffering from high bp 140/95 please suggest me how to control it.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Cardiology, Cardiac Device Specialist (CCDS - Physician )
Cardiologist, Delhi
My age is 32 years and suffering from high bp 140/95 please suggest me how to control it.
If you have never taken any BP medicines and your BP has started remaining high, then 1) We should search for any causes that may be leading to high BP for which you should get Kidney function test, LIpid profile, TSH, HbA1c and Liver function test along with a ecg, echo & TMT. Consult a cardiologist with these reports. 2) You should immediately start with lifestyle modifications like - daily 40 mins of exercise like brisk walking, exercise etc, quit smoking and drinking (in case you do), restrict salt intake in your diet by avoiding salty foods like pickles, chutneys, papads, namkeens, chips, sauces & junk food, normal salt that is added in food while cooking is fine, take a detailed diet consult for a healthy heart diet with a dietitian, if you are obese then target to bring your weight in the BMI limit by exercising and cdiet modifications. 3) Please understand that BP is a fluctating problem it is impacted by day to day stress, anger, lack of sleep etc so ensure that you work on these factors. 4) If despite these measures your BP remains above 140/90 mm Hg then please consult a cardiologist for medications and remain in routine follow up with them.

Hello, thanks for the query. The drug mentioned does not cause any increase in blood glucose levels. Blood glucose rises because of overall food intake like roti, chapati, rice, other cereals, potatoes, bananas etc. So just stopping sugar intake is not going reduce glucose levels. There has to be a closer look at overall diet, extent of exercise, weight & height. Pre-diabetes is a warning sign. One can prevent diabetes if proper care is taken. Thanks.
