Dear lybrate-user. There is nothing called softhearted people. It is just lack of experience. When you mature and get experienced, you will learn to tolerate eventualities. Don't worry. Consult a psychologist online for counseling. Take care.

What are the side effects of using fatty food items and what are the precautions we take to avoid heart attacks?

What are the side effects of using fatty food items and what are the precautions we take to avoid heart attacks?
Fatty food items are high calorie diet. If they are not burnt up completely they get deposited in the body and leads to weight gain. The cholesterol levels in your blood will also increase and may give rise to blockages in the blood vessels which leads to heart attacks. Hence avoid oily food andtake regular daily exercises or go for a brisk walk. Consume plenty of high fibre diet.

Hye. There is no problem in having green tea, but on it's own it can't help bring down triglycerides. Also rice is not a problem if it's unpolished or single pounded and it's not eaten in excess. Your overall diet plays an important role. It's not about just restricting fat but eating the right fats and sensibly.

I am 52 year old I am suffering severe chest pain due to gases. Gases enter into muscle gape and hurt severely what should I do?

pain is complex, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.

Your mother is already taking the basic medications like shelcal and calcirol required to maintain calcium and vitamin D levels in body so that bones remain healthy, for a diet rich in calcium please consult a dietician. Also you can get her blood levels of calcium and vitamin D checked, if even after 6 weeks of supplementation they are low then consult an orthopedician for injectable calcium etc.

Dear lybrate user, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing your dad at this age and in a road accident must have been very traumatic for you. You and your mother are going through a very difficult phase in your life. Your dad's tragic and sudden death has affected you both, but in different ways. There is loss support and sudden increase in the responsibilities for you both. This might be causing a huge burden on you both and you might be feeling insecure and lost. At this difficult time when you are emotionally stressed out, it will be difficult for you to live life normally. You may need some more time to come out of this grief. It is advisable to share your sad feelings with each other and/or with your respective friends and relatives. You both need to talk about your pain with someone. It will relieve you of some pain and sadness. I hope your mother is on medication for bp. I would suggest that you both take an appointment with a counsellor, who will help you in this difficult situation so that eventually you both can move on with life. Take care.

5 Warning Symptoms That Your Heart Gives & You Shouldn't Ignore!

Cardiologist, Purba
5 Warning Symptoms That Your Heart Gives & You Shouldn't Ignore!

Your heart gives you warning signs before the onset of a major problem. You may not even know that you are at risk of one or more heart diseases if you fail to notice these small signs that your heart sends out. Even a minor symptom, like chest pain, can indicate that your heart may be in trouble. While there could be many causal factors for a heart condition, here some symptoms, which are possible indications of a heart disease and should not be ignored in any case.

1. Chest pain or discomfort - This symptom is the most common one, which indicates that your heart is not healthy. It usually comes in the form of a pain, pressure or tightness in the chest and may happen due to a blocked artery. This may be an early warning sign of a heart attack and you should seek professional advice before it turns into a major problem.

2. Excessive sweatingIf you often sweat without any valid reason, it might be a sign to be concerned for. The sweating experienced will feel more like the one that arises due to stress rather than common perspiration experienced due to any vigorous physical activity.

3. Difficulty in breathing - Shortness of breath is an indication that you are at high risk of getting a heart attack. The symptom includes having difficulty in breathing and feels similar to the panting experienced after a long run.

4. Nausea and frequent stomach problems - If you experience nausea, heartburn, indigestion or abdominal pain frequently, it may be the result of an unhealthy heart. Of course, these signs may be due to other diseases as well, but if you experience any of the other symptoms of heart problems too, it's highly probable that your heart is in trouble.

5. Exhaustion - If you fall into the high-risk zone of being a potential heart patient, you may feel exhausted after doing some simple chores, which didn't tire you earlier. Common examples may be climbing the stairs or carrying something from your doorstep inside the house to name a few.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If you do not control at this stage, the limits may be breached. However, lifestyle and food habit changes will set these right without the need of medicines. If need be you may start herbominerals for reducing levels. Gradual effect of herbominerals will have no side effects. Once you start allopathic for lipid reduction, chemical changes caused in body may require you to continue for long/ lifetime and definitely with side effects. If you need further advise, pl consult.
