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.

My friend recently had a angioplasty done around 1 month back (01st Aug 2016) with 100% blockage (thrombosis) on RCA. He is on medication for blood thinner & Cholesterol ie Brilinta, Ecosprin & Storvas/Reva. He neither has diabetic nor hs hypertension. Also Dr. says he does not hv cholesterol. My Questions 1) Since angioplasty is done as such young age, will there be any cardio risk/problem in long run. Will he be able to live a normal life as he is a sports person 2) After the angioplasty, he has breathlessness & heaviness in his chest. Are these the side effects of the medicine that he take. Will he hv to continue for the medicine in entire life. 3) He hs started drinking Garlic & Ginger juice in the morning 1 teaspoon empty stomach, cut down on red meat & started consuming low fats oil. Will this reduce the medication 4) he hs started brisk walking (around 5k steps) exercise in morning & night (after dinner). Is this length of walk enough or should he increase his steps. Is that enough for losing weight n fat/ cholesterol? Detailed response against each point will be highly appreciated. Thanx -SQ-

Hello, I am giving your reply point wise in short. 1. There has a risk throughout the life even with medication. 2. Yes, this chemicals to be taken throughout life. 3. No juices, Please take 5/6 single cloved raw Garlic and 10gm raw Ginger with drinkable warm Water. 4. Walking for 45 minutes for 3 km is sufficient presently. Also go with pranayam morning and evening daily. Try to reduce the LDL n increase the HDL. Basically weight is the main reason for dysfunction of liver which causes production of bad cholesterol. Though it is not so much but instead of going to circulation it deposited to RCA or LCA. If agreed with, I will advise to take Homoeo medicine along with those chemicals as it will help you to be healthy by reducing the chemicals.

1.Your blood sugar is under control, continue with metformin tablet 2.Your Bp is not under control. The combination of amlodepine with hydrochlorothiazide is effective in controlling Bp. 3.Continue for some days, reduce your salt intake, control your diet, go for regular exercise. 4.Monitor your BP and if still it is not controlled, consult physician for alternative medicine like Telmasatan with amlodepine

How to control cholesterol levels?
Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body.

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.
