Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil.

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.

It is not harmful if you cook in a pressure cooker because of intense heat inside. Plus after cooking we take out and keep in other vessel. All mental diseases are very rare it does not affect everybody.

Hi I am a 33 year old male and have been going through chest pain for the past 2 years. I have undergone all the required tests and consultation with lot of specialists. Let me brief you first with the tests I have undergone. In December 2013 I had done a complete heart check up (ECG, stress test and 2D echo) and all the reports were normal. But since the chest pain was still there in the month of Feb 2014 I also did an MRI scan for cervical and a CT angiography. The report for both these test were also normal and the calcium scores being zero. Then in the month of March 2014 I also underwent an endoscopy where in I was diagnosed with GERD (Gastro Esophagus Reflux Disease. Since then I have been taking medications for acid reflux and having changed my lifestyle in terms of my diet and sleep pattern. I was doing night for the last 10 years and recently also resigned from my job due to this. But there has been no change in the pattern of my pain. Infact it has increased over the period of time. I usually get the pain in the middle of my chest and just above the left breast. It is mild to moderate. I am also a non smoker and non drinker. Kindly advise as to why this is exactly happening since its effecting me mentally as well and impacting my career. I now a days at times also feel shortness of breath and pulse going high. Would highly appreciate your inputs on this.

Since all the relevant investigations are normal,your problem could be due to anxiety and stress. You may need some anxiolytic and anti depressant medicine. Please consult psychiatrist for advice and treatment. Go for regular exercise, practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. Yes. The symptoms points to anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal( hormonal) problems , metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia . Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision . It's a safe and near scarless procedure . Consult a plastic surgeon for that.

Stroke Due to Hypertension - What Should be done About it?

Stroke Due to Hypertension - What Should be done About 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.

Eat less salt

Even if you don?t add salt to your food, you may still be eating too much. About three-quarters of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy, such as breakfast cereals, soups, breads and sauces. Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke.

Use food labels to help you cut down. More than 1.5g of salt per 100g means the food is high in salt. Adults and children over 11 should eat no more than 6g of salt a day. Younger children should have even less.

How can the chest pains distinguish as heart problems or not in case of a middle aged man who is a smoker?

How can the chest pains distinguish as heart problems or not in case of a middle aged man who is a smoker?
Chest pain that is central, not localised, radiating to arms and neck, associated with sweating, aggravated by activity and relieved by rest is typical of cardiac pain. Usually that is constricting or sqeezing or heavy pressure like feeling. Chest pain which is not central, licalised to left or rifht side, not radiating, pricking or aching type, aggravates while breathing is usually of non cardiac origin.
