My mom is 65 years old. And weighs around 70kg, 5 feet tall. She is over weight as per bms. I am afraid she might be having heart problems bcoz of poor diet and no exercise. Mostly she is idle and watches tv. Some of my frnds parents had heart attacks. So I am worried of her, as she she takes rests and breathes after 100 meter walk. I want to check whether plaque or block is in her heart and possibilities of heart attack. Is it possible to check. If so what is the name of test and how frequent I mush take her for check up. Thank you.

It's difficult to do dieting, heavy exercise after a certain age and metabolism slows down but eating habits remain same specially in tv addicts. I can suggest healthy eating and healthy snacking, if you can change her habits, about check ups, I will suggest later. First things first. No diet charts, healthy eating will help you also. Give up sugar, sweets, fats, salt in moderation. Take lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items have the much needed calcium, take fresh lemon. Take a spoon of honey added to it, and take with warm water every day in morning on empty stomach. Avoid things like snacks, street food, namkeem, street foods. Use minimum oils for cooking. Nothing new. Simple walk is best exercise. Encourage her to breathe fresh air near plants. Even if there's slight reduction in the weight but the body becomes more supple. Get her tested for blockages in heart by angiography or cardiac ct scan and get blood tested for sugar, thyroid profile done along with blood for lipids and ecg and may be halter test if she can tolerate. Get ultrasound abdomen. You get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum. Let her watch tv, if habitual of taking snacks in between, give her an apple.

Stroke Due To Hypertension - How To Prevent It?

Stroke Due To Hypertension - How To Prevent It?

High blood pressure, which is often a result of hypertension, is the leading risk factor for a stroke, which in turn leads to severe and long-term disability, including death. Managing your blood sugar levels is the most critical thing you can do to lessen your risk of a stroke, and you should leave no stone unturned in keeping your blood pressure at optimum levels.

What causes a stroke

A stroke, which is often referred to as a brain attack, takes place when the supply of blood to a particular region of the brain is cut off. The brain cells which are deprived of the oxygen and glucose die, and when the ailment is not caught early, a permanent damage to the brain can follow.

How is high blood pressure related to a stroke

Uncontrolled blood pressure levels can increase the risk of a stroke by about four to six times. With the passage of time, hypertension causes atherosclerosis as well as hardening of major arteries. This often results in blockages of small blood vessels present in the brain. With high blood pressure for a long period of time, the blood vessels of the brain become weak and burst. This way the risk of a stroke is directly related to the high levels of blood pressure.

What can you do to keep your blood pressure under control

There is a  lot you can do to keep the chance of a stroke at bay. But the first thing you should try doing is keeping your blood pressure level normal. Some simple lifestyle changes can help you to lead a risk-free life and therefore, you should first aim at shedding off those extra pounds along your waistline.

In general, a man with a waistline measuring over 40 inches and a woman with that over 35 inches is at a higher risk of suffering from high blood pressure as well as a stroke. You should exercise regularly for at least half an hour and eat a well-regulated diet loaded with fibre, proteins, potassium and Omega-3 fatty acids. Stay away from junk food and maintain a food diary where you can jot down your honest food habits.

It is very important to lower down your high blood pressure in order to avoid risks of stroke. But if you fail to do so even after following a healthy routine, then it is crucial to consult a doctor who can help you by prescribing medications that are right for your medical condition.

The pain is due to distension. Please avoid eating too much in one sitting and do not consume water while eating. Take water only after a gap of atleast half hour. Also take some fruits instead of proper food by skipping a meal. Walk a little after every meal

I am getting very light pain or sensation near heart (only left hand side of chest) from last one week. I am feeling this from last one month, but it got little increased now and I am feeling palpitation also sometime (not regular). This happened to me before also around two year back. Then I consulted cardiologist, he done ECG and concluded that it is a muscular spasm due to vitamin deficiency. My Blood pressure is 125-135/84 from last week. Is it again a muscular spasm or related to heart? Please advice solution for my problem.

Dear Lybrateuser, - You should get a check up done by a cardiologist to rule out any heart problem which can be due to your thyroid hormone abnormality also - only after a checkup & investigations the cause can be confirmed - to keep your BP at normal level restrict salt intake, avoid fried, processed & junk food, have more of fibrous foods like fruits & vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts - do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 15-20 min, also do yoga, deep breathing & meditation for 10-15 min in the morning.

For reducing your cholesterol and triglycerides level you must pay little more attention to your diet. Avoid fried and fast foods, desert. Take foods which are high fiber like oatmeal, fruits and vegetables, flax seed which are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Also you must maintain a balanced weight as per your height and age. And immediately consult doctor. There is a very good treatment in homeopathy.

Good to know that reports for heart are normal. May be you have stomach problems like acidity due to wrong eating. Take regularly some warm liquids whih are nourishing and less of fatty and oily foods which cause bulk to stomach. You can have clear soups, green tea, diluted toned milk, warm water with honey and lemon juice. Any of thses every 2 hours to wash acid in stomach. Seasonal vegetables & fruits as per constitution. Less of oils and spices but no bland food either. Black pepper and cinnamon is good for heart. Take minumum salt and sugar despite bp and blood sugar being normal.
