Cholesterol kam karne ke upay in Hindi - कोलेस्ट्रॉल कम करने के उपाय

Cholesterol kam karne ke upay in Hindi - कोलेस्ट्रॉल कम करने के उपाय

वर्तमान में कुछ शरीरिक समस्याओं का साथ चोली दामन की तरह हो गया है। जैसे ब्लड प्रेशर, शुगर, थाइरोइड, कोलेस्ट्रॉल आदि। और आज इसी कड़ी में हम जानेंगे खास से आम और आम से खतरनाक हो चुकी बढ़े कोलेस्ट्रॉल की समस्या की। कोलेस्ट्रॉल लीवर द्वारा बनाया जाने वाले वसा होता है। हमारे शरीर के ढंग से काम करने के लिए कोलेस्ट्रॉल का बनना ज़रूरी होता है। ब्लड में कोलेस्टेरॉल का स्तर कम ज़्यादा होने से तरह-तरह की बीमारियाँ घेर लेती हैं। तो आइए हाई कोलेस्टेरॉल को कम करने के उपाय जानते हैं।
आपको यह बात जानना जरूरी है कि कोलेस्ट्रॉल हमारे सेहत के लिए बहुत अच्छा होता है। लेकिन बीमारियाँ तब शुरू होती हैं, जब यह ब्लड सेल्स में जमने लगता है। इस स्थिति में ब्लड सर्कुलेशन बाधित होने लगता है, और शरीर में सभी भागों तक ख़ून पहुंचाने के लिए दिल को पहले से ज्यादा पम्प करना पड़ता है।
कोलेस्टेरॉल दो तरह का होता है एकलो डेंसिटी लाइपोप्रोटीन (एलडीएल) दूसरा हाई डेंसिटी लाइपोप्रोटीन (एचडीएल)
इसमें से हमारी एलडीएल सेहत के लिए बुरा होता है, जबकि एचडीएल होता है अच्छा।
मुख्यतः कोलेस्टेरॉल हार्मोन को नियंत्रित करने में हेल्प करता है।रक्त के विषैले तत्वों को सोखकर शरीर को स्वस्थ रखने में मदद करता है।मस्तिष्क के ठीक से काम करने के लिए कोलेस्टेरॉल का नॉर्मल होना ज़रूरी है। शरीर पर पड़ने वाली धूप से विटामिन बनाने के लिए कोलेस्ट्रॉल जरूरी है।
ब्लड में कोलेस्ट्रॉल का स्तर 3.6 से 7.8 मिलीमोल्स प्रति लीटर की रेंज में होना चाहिए। जब यह लेवल 6 मिलीमोल्स प्रति लीटर हो जाता है, तो यह हाई कोलेस्टेरॉल कहलाता है। लेकिन 7.8 मिलीमोल्स/लीटर के बाद हार्ट अटैक का ख़तरा बढ़ जाता है।
 

हाई कॉलेस्ट्रॉल की कुछ खास वजह होती हैं जैसे कि

  • वज़न बढ़ना
  • शारीरिक मेहनत न करना
  • खान-पान में लापरवाही
  • जेनेटिक


कोलेस्ट्रॉल बढ़ने के सिम्पटम्स कुछ इस तरह होते है। 
– हाई ब्लड प्रेशर
– जल्दी थकान होना
– जल्दी हाँफना
– डायबिटीज़ के मरीज़ में शुगर लेवल बढ़ने से जब ख़ून गाढ़ा होना आदि 

कोलेस्ट्रॉल कम करने की तरकीबें:

  • एलोवेरा: रोजाना खाली पेट 50 ग्राम एलोवेरा खाने सेकोलेस्ट्रॉल कंट्रोल में किया जा सकता है 
  • धनिया: खड़ी धनिया को ताज़े पानी में रातभर भिगोकर सुबह उसका पानी पी जाएँ। साथ ही भीगी धनिया भी चबाकर खाएँ।
  • अंकुरित अनाज: अंकुरित दालों को अगर दिल का दोस्त कहा जाए तो गलत नहीं होगा। अंकुरित दालों का रोजाना सेवन बुरे कोलेस्ट्रॉल को घटाता है। अपने दिन के खाने में कम से कम आधा कप बीन्स जैसे राजमा, चने, मूंग, सोयाबीन और उड़द को आप सूप, सलाद या सब्जी किसी भी रूप में ले सकते हैं।
  • नओट्स: सुबह के समय नाश्ते में ओट्स खाना स्वस्थ दिन की शानदार शुरुआत है। 6 हफ्ते तक सुबह नाश्ते में प्रतिदिन ओट्स का दलिया लेने से एलडीएल को 5.3% तक घटा सकते हैं।
  • वाइन: जो लोग वाइन पीने का शौक रखते हैं, वो अपना शौख बरकरार रखें। हफ्ते में 2 बार थोड़ी सी रेड ग्रेप वाइन पीना कोलेस्ट्रॉल को कम करने मे मदद करता है।
  • ग्रीन टी: ग्रीन टी में कॉफी के मुकाबले काफी कम कैफीन पाई जाती है। साथ ही शरीर को चुस्त-दुरुस्त रखने और स्वस्थ रखने वाले एंटी-ऑक्सीडेंट भी ग्रीन-टी में ज्यादा होते हैं। 
  • रोजाना ग्रीन-टी पीने से शरीर की प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढ़ती है जिससे बुरे कोलेस्ट्रॉल को कम करना आसान हो जाता है।
  • मछली: जो लोग मछली खाते हैं उनके लिए भी कोलेस्ट्रॉल को घटाना आसान है। दरअसल, हमारे शरीर को स्वस्थ फैटी एसिड और अमीनो एसिड की जरूरत होती है। शरीर को एनर्जी और विटामिन-डी देने के अलावा फिश में स्वस्थ फैटी एसिड और अमीनो एसिड भरपूर मात्रा में होते हैं, जो कोलेस्ट्रॉल को कम करने में उपयोगी हैं।
  • ड्राई फ्रूट्स: अमेरिकन हार्ट एसोसिएशन के मुताबिक सूखे मेवे खाना हमारी सेहत के लिए बहुत जरूरी है, क्योंकि इनमें प्रोटीन फाइबर और विटामिन-ई भरपूर मात्रा में होते हैं।साथ ही मेवों में स्वस्थ फैटी एसिड भी पाया जाता है जो केमिकल्स में प्रोसेस नहीं होता है और कोलेस्ट्रॉल को कम करने में काफी असरदार है।तो अब बिंदास आप रोजाना एक मुट्ठी डॉयफ्रूइट्स खाएं।
  • मोटापा कम करें: मोटापा कोलेस्ट्रॉल बढ़ने के प्रमुख कारणों में से एक है। हाई कोलेस्टेरॉल का ख़तरा बढ़ने पर वज़न को बढ़ने मत दीजिए। अधिक मोटापा हाई कोलेस्टेरॉल के साथ साथ डायबिटीज़ और हाई ब्लड प्रेशर का भी कारण होता है।
  • योग और व्यायाम करें: योग और व्यायाम के लिए वज़न बढ़ने का इंतज़ार मत कीजिए। योग करने से रक्त संचार ठीक रहता है, हृदय रोगों से बचाता है, और रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढ़ाता है।

कोलेस्टेरॉल से पीड़ित व्यक्ति हफ्ते में 5 दिन एक्सरसाइज करे। जॉगिंग, साइकलिंग, तैराक़ी और एरोबिक्स भी कर सकते हैं।
और कुछ न कर सकें तो कम से कम आधा घंटा रोज़ टहलें।
हेल्दी डाइट: कोलेस्ट्रॉल कंट्रोल करने के लिए फ़ैट बढ़ाने वाले चीज़ें न खाएँ। वो हर चीज़ खा सकते हैं, जिससे सभी पोषक तत्व हों। अंडे की ज़र्दी, जंक फ़ूड, तली-भुनी चीज़ें, फ़ुल क्रीम मिल्क और रेड मीट खाने से बचें।
ज्यादा दवाएं खाने से बचें: दवाओं का इस्तेमाल डॉक्टरी सलाह से ही करें ना कि दवाओं सुनी सुनाई बातों पर करने पर मनमानी दवा खाएं। इसके साथ जीवनशैली में आवश्यक बदलाव करके दवाई पर निर्भर रहने की कंडीशन पर काबू पाने की कोशिश करें।
ध्यान रहे कोलेस्ट्रॉल की जांच हर 6 महीने पर कराते रहनी चाहिए। और 20 वर्ष से ज्यादा उम्र केलोगों को हर 5 वर्ष में एक बार जांच करानी चाहिए।

Hello , having pain below the rights side of the chest is most likely due to liver diseases. You can get a liver profile blood test done for him to ensure that his liver is functioning properly and also get an ultrasound done of hus abdomen in order to rule out any swelling. Let me know the reports and I will be able to guide you further.

Coronary Artery Disease - 7 Ways You Can Prevent it

Coronary Artery Disease - 7 Ways You Can Prevent it

The heart pumps pure blood to all parts of the body through a network of arteries. These are thicker in the beginning and become finer and thinner as they reach the various organs. These arteries are lined by a layer of epithelial tissues and as blood flows through them, the heavier cholesterol / fat molecules settle down along the walls.

This attracts more and more fat molecules to settle down. This is known as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Over a period of time, the vessels circumference reduces and the blood supply to the target organ reduces. This impacts proper functioning of these organs and when this happens to the major organs like the heart, kidney or the brain, conditions like stroke or thrombosis or heart attack can occur.

This condition, known as coronary artery disease, is becoming a major cause of deaths.  While that is the bad news, the good news is that it is largely lifestyle dependent, and if steps are taken, it can be prevented, and in the early stages, the damage completely reversed.

Preventive measures:

1. Diet: A low-fat, high-fiber, heart-healthy diet consisting of Omega-3 fatty acids is recommended by doctors, especially to people who are prone to develop heart disease.  This also requires reduced salt, increased unsaturated fats, reduced triglycerides and reduced sugar. Include loads of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds and fish oils. Include multivitamins or other supplements after checking with your doctor.

2. Exercise:  Regular exercise in any form increases the efficiency of the circulatory system, keeps the cholesterol levels in check and helps in blood pressure management.  Exercise in any form is advisable, based on individual preference. A moderate physical activity of 30 to 45 minutes per day is advisable.

3. Smoking: This is one of the major risk factors for smoking, and quitting or controlling smoking is one of the best methods to prevent coronary artery disease.

4. Alcohol consumption:  While moderate alcohol consumption is believed to be healthy for the heart, excessive alcohol consumption is a strict no-no.  Binge drinking especially is shown to cause heart attacks.

5. Weight management: Check with your doctor on what is ideal BMI for you and work out a plan to keep your weight under check.

6. Regular medications: If you are on blood pressure or diabetes medications, ensure you do not miss them.  Keep a constant check to ensure your readings are managed well.

7. Watch out:  Ask your doctor if there are specific symptoms that you need to watch out and seek medical support if you see any of them.

Coronary disease is not treatable fully, but can be prevented and managed effectively to improve the overall quality of life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

Minimally Invasive Coronary Bypass Surgery

M.B.B.S. , PG Diploma In Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Minimally Invasive Coronary Bypass Surgery

Mics cabg or micas stands for minimally invasive coronary artery surgery. It is a relatively new and advanced technique of performing coronary bypass for coronary artery disease. In this technique the heart is approached through the side of the left chest via a small 4cm incision. This cut is placed just under the nipple. The chest is entered between the ribs without cutting any bones and by splitting the muscle.

Similar to a regular heart surgery the operation is performed using all arteries or a combination of arteries and veins removed from the leg. The vessel from the leg in these operations is also removed endoscopically without cutting the skin over the leg. Highly advanced instrumentation and advanced techniques allow for the operation to be performed very safely.

Why mics cabg?

Mics cabg has several advantages over the traditional technique:


    First and foremost is the fact that no bones are cut. This has several advantages in reducing pain, retaining function and having a positive effect on breathing. Unlike traditional heart surgery return to normal life including driving or other activities is not disrupted and can be started almost immediately.
    Second, blood loss is almost negligible eliminating blood transfusion in most and eliminating blood borne infection.
    Third, all infections are reduced whether it be wound infections or post surgical lung infection. This makes the procedure ideal in diabetics and older patients who have poor resistance to infection.
    Fourth, the incision is so cosmetic and measures just 2 – 3 inches that it's practically impossible to tell that a heart operation has been done.
    Fifth, the procedure lasts only 4 days unlike the conventional heart surgery that takes 9 days.


All these benefits put together make for ultra short hospitalization and recovery. The best part is that all the blocks irrespective of their location in the heart can be bypassed in a safe and predictable manner.

Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having body pain and laxity through out. To improve your immune system you have to take more haemoglobin in your diet, initially you can improve your diet and if not successful then you can take medicines to improve the immunity. It is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. Whenever you do breathing in and out you will feel pain in the upper back, middle back and also the pain will radiate upwards until the shoulder and also up to the chest. You might feel chest congestion and tightness and that be due to gastric trouble. Kindly do breathing exercises which might help you to get reduced with pain in the back and shoulder. Drink hot water to reduce the gastric trouble. Kindly consult gastroenterologist if you doesn’t improve.

Taking of red meat is not the only cause for high blood pressure. There are so many cause for high blood pressure like staying always in high stress, pressure packed life style, lack of physical activities, taking of more junk food or fast food, lack of sleep, hereditary cause, alcoholic person, besides that others ae kidney or heart diseases etc. So first maintain a healthy life style and healthy food habits.
