My friend's mother was hospitalized yesterday after some symptoms of minor heart attack. And he's very much worried. She is in ICU till now and has low BP as heart is weak to pump blood as said by doctor. She is also on insulin as she is a sugar patient. I have ICU chart with me, I can share it. Doctor is saying she is responding to treatment well but my concern is having a low BP can be a situation to worry about.

Low BP is definitely a point of concern in post myocardial infarction management and is due to compromised pumping function of the left ventricle. You should have confidence in the words of the treating physician when he says she is responding to treatment. She may need continuous monitoring and treatment even after recovery, but if the attack is labelled to be minor, you should not worry too much. A direct study of her case papers may be of much help in opining.

At age 45, it is better to consult a doctor to see if medication is necessary. You can always do all necessary lifestyle changes to keep under control and maintain without medicine in the long run. But if it is necessary to take medicines for few weeks, do not shy from this. You can always choose to take homeopathy or ayurvedic which will also help a great deal. Rub sole of feet with few drops of coconut oil before sleeping. Have a bath before sleeping. Make sure bed is cool. All to improve sleep duration and depth. This will also help monitor BP. In ayurveda, High BP is also associated with vaata. So make sure you do not eat anything that will burden gas and indigestion. Meditate, a calm disposition is necessary to maintain a healthy BP. Best wishes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your lipid levels are fairly normal. Hdl (good cholesterol) is slightly low, tgl os a little more than normal. These levels are in no way causing any problem related to heart as you are suggesting. If there is any doubt in mind meet a cardiologist or just get an echo cardiogram done. My advise please do regular exercise, avoid high fat containing foods, refrain from smoking and alcohol (if you are indulging in to). Adapt a healthy life style, then there should be no problem. Your lipid levels do not need any drug treatment. Thanks.

1) There are no supplements to improve heart functioning. 2) Your increased heart beat is due to the fact that the body was not used to work out, so begin slowly with your workout and gradually increase it. If the heart beat still bothers you then get an ECG , lipid profile and BP checked and consult a doctor. 3) Fast heartbeat is also due to smoking and caffeine intake, so quit both.

I did a few other tests like creatine etc but they are in the normal range. I understand that the liver enzymes are a little high and so is my cholesterol & I am Vitamin D deficient. I drink 4-5 bottles (750 ml each) of beer (bottle says less than 6℅ alcohol) once a week & that's important for me to unwind myself after 5 working days. I eat non-veg regularly. I am thinking of having Cod liver capsule (please advise good brand), Livosin or any good liver tonic and having food like mackerel. Is that fine with the test results I have? I really don't want to stop the beer .Please help!

If you want to stay healthy and keep your Liver healthy and cholesterol in control, then you don't have an option except reducing your Alcohol intake significantly. The reason why both your Liver ezymes and cholesterol are deranged is because of high intake of alcohol, so taking Liver tonics is not going to help. Best would be to exercise daily, eat a healthy diet and reduce your alcohol consumption to 60-70 ml per day if you must.

All About Conservative Cardiology

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Pune
All About Conservative Cardiology

The heart is the most important among the vital organs within the human body. The functioning of all the other vital organs also depends on this and thus cardiology is a mightily important subject as it deals in all the problems and abnormalities of the heart.

What is conservative cardiology?
Cardiology is classified primarily into two disciplines, namely invasive and conservative. As the name implies, conservative cardiology is about taking the minimum steps to get the most out of this discipline without the involvement of major surgeries or other procedures. This is done to minimize risks, quicken healing time and be less painful to the patient.

How conservative cardiology works?
Conservative cardiology isn't just a procedure to resolve a certain issue, but a whole type of approach towards resolving cardiac problems. All parts, from diagnostic to therapy have a different approach compared to invasive cardiology. Let's take a look at those parts.

Diagnostic methods
Some of the diagnostic methods may be similar to invasive cardiology as this is usually the first step in finding the problems with your heart. These are mostly non invasive body and heart examinations. Most of these exams will use:

  • A high resolution, state-of-the-art 4D ultrasound scanner
  • A CAT scanner with contrast agent to find blockages.

Although invasive cardiology uses the same technology now in most cases, there are other invasive methods to detect blockages. One example of this is the cardiac catheter, which has to be physically inserted into the body for detection of problems.

Therapy for conservative cardiology
Therapy is the actual area where invasive and conservative methods stand out from each other. Conservative cardiology espouses the approach of minimum surgery. It doesn't even follow surgeries like angioplasty which is minimally invasive. Some of the techniques that Conservative cardiology relies upon are:

  1. Medications
  2. Lifestyle changes
  3. Physiotherapy and exercising
  4. Constant maintenance
  5. Changes in nutrition to control and lessen risks
  6. Reducing stress and other contributing factors of heart disease.

Conservative cardiology takes a more of a preventative approach, the moment a problem is diagnosed. It tries to minimize or at least keep the problem in check by instituting smaller changes. Exercise regimens, relaxation routines, diet changes are all a part of this. However the most important weapons are medications which reduce the imminent danger of cardiac arrests or other cardiac problems. These smaller changes along with medications ensure that the larger problems, for which surgeries may be required, never arise in the first place.

Reduce your weight @ 3-5 kg per month only with the help of diet and exercise , give up sweets and oily food and take lots of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Simple exercise like walk for at least half an hour is good for the heart.
