Cholesterol - 6 Surprising Facts About It!

DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Mohali
Cholesterol - 6 Surprising Facts About It!

Do you know that cholesterol is found in baby formula and has got some surprising facts about them? Cholesterol is a waxy, fat like substance which is present in all your cells, and your body’s cholesterol level says a lot about the health of your heart in the future. Having high cholesterol increases your risk of acquiring heart diseases and hence, you should try to maintain a normal cholesterol level.

Here are some surprising facts about cholesterol, which you should know about:

  1. You cannot live without cholesterol: We are born with cholesterol in our bodies and infants get more cholesterol from mother’s milk. This is why cholesterol is added to baby formula. All the hormones and cells of your body need cholesterol for proper functioning. It also builds the cells and helps the liver to prepare fat processing acids.
  2. One out of three adults have high cholesterol: It is important for all people above the age of 20 to get a cholesterol checkup every five years. According to studies, around 32% of adults in the USA have got high cholesterol levels. Your cholesterol levels may also be affected by factors such as your diet and stress.
  3. High cholesterol can be genetic: Genetics is a major influencing factor in high cholesterol levels. Research has proven that almost 75% of high cholesterol cases are genetic in nature while 25% occur because of diet.
  4. Children can have high cholesterol as wellThere is a common misconception that high cholesterol is an issue involving adults only. However, children may also have high cholesterol and it is recommended for you to get your child tested at an early age. For children who are obese and have a family history of heart attacks and high cholesterol, a selective screening is important.
  5. Sweating raises the levels of good cholesterol: Sweating is good for increasing the levels of good cholesterol in your body. You should follow a healthy diet including food items like avocado and salmon. Working out is also important for raising your HDL levels, which prevent heart disease.
  6. Supplements may help in lowering cholesterol levels: The first option for controlling your cholesterol levels is to work out regularly. If you are at a risk of heart attack or have hypercholesterolemia, you have to bank on supplements such as plant stanols and sterols. You can also take cholesterol reducing medications such as statins.

Earlier, the medical community was reserved about prescribing cholesterol lowering medicines and they were given only to critical heart patients. In modern day, statin treatment is recommended to people who have even little chances of heart attacks or stroke.

What Should You Know About Hypertension and High Blood Pressure?

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Gurgaon
What Should You Know About Hypertension and High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure is a condition which occurs when the pressure of the blood flow through the arteries increases, resulting in intense pressure. Hypertension occurs when the systolic pressure (pressure at which the heart pumps blood) and the diastolic pressure (pressure at which the heart relaxes) is more than 140 and 90 respectively.

Symptoms of high blood pressure are: 

  1. Shortness of breathIf you have high blood pressure, then you may experience regular shortness of breath.
  2. HeadachesYou may experience headaches on a regular basis.
  3. Weakness of the heart muscles: Hypertension results in a weak heart which may not be able to pump blood properly.
  4. Narrowing of blood vessels: Narrowing of blood vessels may lead to other complications such as failure of the kidneys, heart, and brain.
  5. Vision problems: It may lead to vision problems as blood vessels in the eye may be affected.

The various causes of blood pressure are: 

  1. Tobacco: If you smoke on a regular basis, you put yourself at an increased risk of getting affected by blood pressure.
  2. Lifestyle: Not exercising regularly, eating a sodium-rich diet are all factors which can increase the chances of hypertension.
  3. Age: The chances of getting affected by hypertension increase as you age.
  4. Weight: Being excessively obese also increases your risk of getting affected by hypertension.
  5. DiabetesBeing diabetic makes you more prone to getting affected by diabetes.
  6. HyperthyroidismIf you have an overactive thyroid gland, then it may result in hypertension.

Hypertension may result in various health complications in the body such as:

  1. Aneurysm: This is a disorder of the blood vessels which causes the blood vessels to bulge and weaken.
  2. Heart attackHigh blood pressure causes the arteries to harden and thicken which may lead to a heart attack.
  3. Metabolic syndrome: This syndrome refers to a group of complications such as high bad cholesterol levels and insulin levels in the body.
  4. Impaired brain functioning: It may also impair your ability to learn and impact your cognitive skills. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Hi lybrate-user Aftab There could be many reasons for weight gain. When you gain weight then obviously several other problems arises. Hormonal imbalance can be treated with right food and supplement. You have fat deposit on tummy or belly this indicates that you may have insulin resistance. The food which helps in balancing insulin resistance will help you in losing weight faster. All sugar based food is dangerous for your type of body To lose weight we need to focus upon some basic food plan like cutting down on grains and sugar This helps immediately .we should avoid processed food. The healthy weight loss diet should contain ample amount of vegetable with sufficient protein. Taking some dietary supplements helps in weight loss as well. I am suggesting a general diet and supplement for you. You can visit my clinic for free detailed body composition analysis. Sample Diet PlanBreakfast – Green salad with omlet Lunch -2 Chapatti made with Nutroactive Brown Atta, cooked green vegetable +salad +curd. Dinner – vegetable soup with butter. Snacks - Dry fruits and Nuts with green tea. Suggested Supplements Microfruit tablets daily after breakfast. Lipolyzer tummy tablet after lunch and dinner.

Some incidents suddenly scares people. Example- Sudden Dog's bark in a lonely street when you are walking alone. Ya normally people get panic or get scared suddenly and normally they recover within some time but here is my problem, I feel like I can't recover easily. After any of this kind of incident, my heart feels like it may stop anytime a kind of uncomfortable in the mid chest and haven't seen any type of pain until now. But a type of uncomfortable scare at the mid chest. Normally recovers after a nap. Some times I wake up breathlessness too. But would be fine after a sleep. It has happened n number of times and my BP is 130/85 around and am 114 kg with 167 cms height. This condition subsides with Librium 10 SOS and have tried 2-3 times with my physician's prescription. I just wanted to know, is this an anxiety disorder or panic attack or something related to my heart, please advise.

Dear Lybrate user It seems like anxiety and even panic and/or phobia. There is nothing to be worried about as such. By mind training it will be alright and you will be able to recover from such thing which happens suddenly. Your weight is 100+ and that is alarming. I would strongly recommend you to do something for it. By mind training you can also lose your weight and that also very easily and permanently because weight loss is more of a psychological process. You can contact me in private for therapy. Good luck.

Normally at this age the normal heartbeat may reach upto 120/min. And beyond that is the matter of worry. And if she has no symptoms regarding that and she is comfortable then not much to worry about. Though you may once consult a cardiologist for your satisfaction and get her checked.

I am now 60 years old. Last two years back my BP raised to 190 /103. I have gone to cardiac doctor. He has done some tests and all are normal. Before the tests are done, they gave me amlodac 5 mg. After 10 to 15 minutes the BP came down. During my BP raised period I couldn't find sound sleep. Then he prescribed amlodipine 5 mg, Telmisat40. From the day I am not getting sleep in night. The other doctor told me to take trika 0.25 mg. I want to avoid trika and get sound sleep as usual. Please guide me.

Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case. A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Changing eating habits is required but what you require is walk and exercise, if you can do 30 to 45 min to any kind of cardio or exercise at least 5 days a week with avoiding junk food / ghee oil and butter. That will take care of your lipids in 2 months. Repeat the lips profile after 3 months and continue the good work later as well.
