Hi, i'm a smoker for the past 3 years, just started running from last week. I need to improve my stamina. I kind of exceed my limit while running, can such a fast heartbeat cause a stroke or something? Thank you.

I would recommend you to stop smoking since it affects your lungs a lot. While running run as much your body allows you, dont exceed the limit.

400 ml of green tea is a lot. I do not know about the side effects of it but I suggest 200 ml twice a day is okay. If you do find any abnormal chest discomfort or heart beats please consult your physician also.

Endocrinologist, Bangalore
The causes can be many. Firstly i would want u to tell me your creatinine values. Second, are u 100% complaint to ur medicines? If you are then may be we need to find the cause for the high bp. That may involve adding a new drug or adjusting the doses of ur old drugs. Also we need to search if any other causes are there for ur HTN.

I am 27 years old. In recent blood test my CHOLESTEROL levels are not good. LDL CHOLESTEROL - DIRECT is 184 mg/dl. NON-HDL CHOLESTEROL is 207.37 mg/dl. Please suggest best way to overcome this.

Atrial Fibrillation Symptoms, Types and Treatment

MBBS, PG Diploma in Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Gurgaon
Atrial Fibrillation   Symptoms, Types and Treatment

We all know about the heartbeat, which is produced by the opening and closing of the valves in the heart, which in turn controls our blood flow. There is a regular pattern to this beat, and when, due to various reasons, it becomes irregular, it is known as arrhythmia. Atrial fibrillation, known shortly as AFib, is one of the common types of arrhythmia.

Why AFib: The heart has an electrical impulse system, which controls the opening/closing of its valves. Due to various changes, be it lifestyle, dietary, or regular wear and tear, this electrical system is affected and so the valves do not function properly. This leads to altered rhythm, and when it happens on the right side of the heart, in the valves between the two atria, it is known as atrial fibrillation.

Signs and Symptoms: It is not something which shows up as soon as the onset happens. It is a gradual condition, and many people with AFib may go for months with no symptoms. There could be general symptoms like fatigue and headaches. Gradually, more symptoms like heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, occasional chest pain, or fainting set in. It is usually when workup for some other disease is being done.

Monitoring the pulse or heartbeat is one of the best ways to keep a check on the condition.

Types: There are different forms of it – paroxysmal, persistent, and permanent. In the first one, there are brief bursts of AFib lasting less than 7 days. With gradual progression, symptoms are more frequent and last longer, converting into persistent AFib, which lasts longer than 7 days. If the condition is longstanding and the doctor (as well as the patient) have decided not to treat it, it is permanent AFib.

Risk Factors: The chances of developing AFib increase with family history, age, obesity, smoking, hyperthyroidism, chronic lung diseases, and sleep apnea.

Living with AFib: It is a longstanding condition, and the following precautions are necessary, which are generally heart-healthy.

  1. Quit Smoking: In addition to the multiple benefits of quitting, managing AFib is one.

  2. Diet Changes: Change to a heart-healthy diet with whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, increased fish oils, reduced fat, reduced salt and sugar etc.

  3. Work It Out: Get into an exercise regimen. Discuss with your doctor to identify and agree on the type and level of exercise. This helps manage weight and stress, both essential for controlling AFib.

  4. Manage Alcohol Consumption: Avoid excess consumption of alcoholic beverages. Avoid them completely if they trigger symptoms.

If you have the risk factors for AFib, implementing these changes earlier than the onset of symptoms can help delay progress and reduce severity of the symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

How to be safe from heatstrokes. In summer how we can stay safe and move from heat to cold easily?

General Physician, Delhi
Avoid sun with the help of black umbrella only. Don't come to ac room as soon as coming home. Go to a room fitted with cooler instead. Drink lots of water of ors variety, eat less salts and fried foods, take lots of water rich fruits and vegetables like melons and cucumber and wear cottons only. Maintain basic hygiene by taking bath. If exposed to sun for long hours rest and ors types of water is the only therapy. No medicines, prevention is the mantra.

Hi, you need medication as well as psychotherapy for this. Practice mindfulness: The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing.

I'm loosing my hair and I have hypo thyroid, gout and palpitations.Please tell.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
In hypothyroidism hair fall is a common occurrence. It is usually the last symptom to be corrected after hypothyroidism is fully controlled. When tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units, then it is considered as good control. So please check tsh levels and see that those are brought to the expected value. Gout and palpitations are unconnected to hypothyroidism.
