Hello Lybrate User, Here are few preventive measures to reduce Cholesterol levels, follow this tips - * Exercise - Do 30 - 45 minutes a day of moderate cardio. It will help s to lose weight and boosts your HDL levels. * Diet - eat more fibers, eat healthy fats i.e. Nuts, olive oil, avocado all have fats that won't increase your LDL, limit cholesterol intake, i.e. Reduce high saturated fat foods like cheese, whole milk. Choose fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, low fat or nonfat dairy products, eat low salt diet. * Quit smoking, limit alcohol and caffeine consumption. * Do practice relaxation and breathing exercises. * Garlic - it helps to reduce high cholesterol. In the morning take a small piece of garlic and crush it and take with glass of water. The garlic contains allicin which helps to lower high blood pressure and prevents blood clotting. * Drink 8 - 10 glasses of water, per day. Take homeopathy treatment for High Cholesterol. The goal of homeopathy is to lower high cholesterol to desired levels to prevent heart diseases. If you want to take homeopathic treatment and for better results you can consult me on Lybrate privately. Take care.

Mr. Lybrate-user, bp reading is systolic 100 - 140 / diastolic 60 to 90 mm hg. This is normal range. But systolic (upper) 120 to 130 and diastolic (lower) 70 to 80 mm hg is generally considered normal range. I am not able to understand the sentence" bp remains 100 - 160 (if medicine not taken)" are you saying it 160 / 100 mm hg because higher number is above and lower nuber is below. Please clarify.

To help manage your diabetes, your meals need to be: • Regular and spread evenly throughout the day • Lower in fat, particularly saturated fat • If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks Matching the amount of food you eat with the amount you burn up each day is important. Not putting too much fuel in your body (keeping food intake to moderate serves) is vital to getting the right balance. Along with healthy eating, regular physical activity can help you to manage your blood glucose levels, reduce your blood fats (cholesterol and triglycerides) and maintain a healthy weight. . It is important to recognise that one diet does not fit everyone with diabetes. So my slogan for all diabetics is 'One Diet does Not Fit All'. So every individual diabetic should consult a dietician to plan a way according to individual body,tastes and requirements.Only then can you control your blood sugar levels. Fat Fats have the highest energy (kilocalorie) content of all foods. Eating too much fat can make you put on weight, which may make it more difficult to manage blood glucose levels. While it is important to try and reduce fat in your diet, especially if you are trying to lose weight, some fat is good for health. Saturated fat It is important to limit saturated fat because it raises your LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels. Saturated fat is found in animal foods like fatty meat, milk, butter and cheese. Vegetable fats that are saturated include palm oil (found in solid cooking fats, snack foods or convenience foods) and coconut products such as copha, coconut milk or cream. To reduce saturated fat: • Choose reduced or low-fat milk, yoghurt, ice-cream and custard • Choose lean meat and trim any fat off before cooking • Remove the skin from chicken (where possible, before cooking) • Avoid using butter, cream, sour cream, coconut milk, coconut cream and hard cooking margarines • Limit the amount of cheese you eat and try reduced-fat and low-fat varieties • Limit pastries, cakes, puddings, chocolate and cream biscuits to special occasions • Limit pre-packaged biscuits, packet snacks, cakes, frozen and convenience meals • Limit the use of processed deli meats ( chicken loaf, salami etc) and sausages • Avoid fried takeaway foods such as chips, fried chicken and battered fish and choose BBQ chicken (without the skin) and grilled fish instead • Avoid pies, sausage rolls and pastries • Rather than creamy sauces or dressings, choose those that are based on tomato, soy or other low fat ingredients. As some tomato and soy sauces can be high in salt, choose low-salt varieties or make them yourself without any added salt. • Limit creamy style soups. Polyunsaturated & monounsaturated fats Eating small amounts of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats can help ensure you get the essential fatty acids and vitamins your body needs. Polyunsaturated fats include: • Polyunsaturated margarines (check the label for the word ‘polyunsaturated’) • Sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, cottonseed, grapeseed and sesame oils • The fat found in oily fish such as herring, mackerel, sardine, salmon and tuna. Monounsaturated fats include: • Canola® and olive oils • Some margarines • Avocado. Seeds, nuts, nut spreads and peanut oil contain a combination of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. Ideas for enjoying healthy fats • Stir-fry meat and vegetables in a little canola® oil (or oil spray) with garlic or chilli • Dress a salad or steamed vegetables with a little olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar • Sprinkle sesame seeds on steamed vegetables • Use linseed bread and spread a little canola margarine • Snack on a handful of unsalted nuts, or add some to a stir-fry or salad • Spread avocado on sandwiches and toast, or add to a salad • Eat more fish (at least three times a week) because it contains a special type of fat (omega-3) that is good for your heart. • Do more dry roasting, grilling, microwaving and stir-frying in a non-stick pan • Avoid deep fried, battered and crumbed foods Carbohydrate I recommend to eat a moderate amount of carbohydrates for all Diabetics means, on a plate, approx, 1/4 of the plate should be carbohydrate foods. Carbohydrate foods are the best energy source for your body. When they are digested they break down to form glucose in the bloodstream. Insulin takes the glucose out of the blood and deposits it into the muscles, liver and other cells in the body where it is used to provide energy. A regular carbohydrate intake is required to provide our body and brain with instant energy. Most foods contain carbohydrate and also provide us with fibre, vitamins and minerals. Very low carbohydrate diets are not recommended for people with diabetes. If you eat regular meals and spread your carbohydrate foods evenly throughout the day, you will help maintain your energy levels without causing large rises in your blood glucose levels. If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks. Discuss this with your doctor or dietician. All carbohydrate foods are digested to produce glucose but they do so at different rates – some slow, some fast. The glycemic index or GI is a way of describing how a carbohydrate containing food affects blood glucose levels. The type of carbohydrate you eat is very important as some can cause higher blood glucose after eating. The best combination is to eat moderate amounts of carbohydrate and include high fibre foods that also have a low GI. Sugar A healthy eating plan for diabetes can include some sugar. However, it is important to consider the nutritional value of the foods you eat. In general, foods with added sugars should be consumed sparingly (manufacturers sometimes use fruit juice or other sources of sugar to avoid using table sugar). In particular, high energy foods such as sweets, lollies and standard soft drinks should not be consumed on a regular basis. Some sugar may also be used in cooking and many recipes can be modified to use less than the amount stated or substituted with an alternative sweetener. Select recipes that are low in fat (particularly saturated fat) and contain some fibre. Alternative sweeteners The use of intense sweeteners by people with diabetes is preferable to use of natural sugars. Protein Choose protein foods that are also low in fat. This will help to reduce the amount of saturated fat you eat. Protein foods include lean meat, poultry without the skin, seafood, eggs (not fried), unsalted nuts, soy products such as tofu and pulses (dried beans and lentils). Herbs, condiments & drinks You can use these following foods nd add flavour and variety to your meals. • Herbs, spices, garlic, chilli, lemon juice, vinegar and other seasonings. • Products labelled ‘low calorie’ (e.g. low calorie/diet soft drinks, low calorie jelly). • Tea, coffee, herbal tea, water, soda water, plain mineral water. • Limit your alcohol intake if you choose to drink

Tips To Help You Control Your High Blood Pressure
Make sure your blood pressure is under 140/90 mm Hg. If your systolic pressure (the top number) is over 140, ask your doctor what you can do to lower it.

Take your high blood pressure medicine, if prescribed, every day. If you have questions, talk to your doctor.

Aim for a healthy weight. If you are overweight or obese, carrying this extra weight increases your risk of high blood pressure. One way to determine if you need to lose weight is to find out your body mass index or BMI. If your BMI is above the healthy range (i.E, 25 or greater), or if your waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (women) or 40 inches (men) you probably have excess abdominal weight and you may benefit from weight loss especially if you have other risk factors. Talk to your doctor to see if you are at increased risk for high blood pressure and need to lose weight.

Increase your physical activity. Do at least 30 minutes of moderate activity, such as walking, most days of the week. You can do 30 minutes in three 10-minute segments.

Choose foods low in salt and sodium.

Read nutrition labels. Almost all packaged foods contain sodium. Every time you prepare or eat a packaged food, know how much sodium is in one serving.
Keep a sodium diary. You may be surprised at how much sodium you consume each day and the diary will help you decide which foods to decrease or eliminate.

Use spices and herbs instead of salt to season the food you prepare at home.

Eat more fruits, vegetables, grains, and low-fat dairy foods.

If you consume alcohol at all, consume moderate amounts.

Dear lybrate-user, It is usual to put on weight at middle years of life. As far walking is concerned, you should walk very brisk. Just strolling does not help at all. Food that you are taking, seems to be okay to me. Avoid mid meals snacks. Stress is also known to cause weight gain. I would suggest reduce sugar intake, fats and cereals.

Pacemaker For Heart Failure And Its Implications

DM (CARDIOLOGY), MD (MEDICINE), MBBS
Cardiologist, Gurgaon
Pacemaker For Heart Failure And Its Implications

The treatment of heart disease has come a long way and one of the more important and fairly common devices used to correct rhythmic problems of the heart is a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a device which is put inside the chest or sometimes even the abdomen to send electrical pulses to the heart to keep it beating at a normal rate.

Pacemaker for heart failure

However, the implications in case of heart failure make the usage of the pacemaker much more complicated. In such cases, the device used is a special type of pacemaker which is also called a bi-ventricular pacemaker. This device sends electrical signals to pump the ventricles of the heart so that they can pump at the same time.

There are many factors to be aware of before undergoing this treatment. Some of the factors to consider are mentioned below.

  • Requirement for a pacemaker in case of heart failure - When a patient has heart failure, their ventricles or lower chambers of the heart aren't able to pump enough blood into it. This could be due to physical problems with the heart or problems with the electrical system within it which cannot function normally. The doctor will perform multiple tests to determine whether a patient is the right candidate for a pacemaker for heart failure.
  • The procedure - In most cases the device is fitted into the chest and it is done without an open heart surgery. Precautions and post operative care for a minor surgery should be followed. The doctor makes a minor incision on the chest and then inserts the device along with three leads which are connected to the ventricles to ensure they keep pumping properly. Sometimes another device known as the ICD or the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator may be put in to shock the heart back to a normal rhythm in extreme cases where the change of sudden death from high heart rate is a possibility.
  • Immediate post operative care - As mentioned above, the surgery involved in putting a pacemaker is a minor one and the patient is usually discharged in next 2-3 days or may be more depending on the comorbidities & complexity of the scenario. However, in most cases, people can go home the next day fairly easily although some monitoring is done for the next few days with daily reporting.

After a major heart attack, large part of heart may get damaged. So the working of heart gets affected and heart becomes weak. In that case you may feel weakness and breathlessness apart from chest pain. Your doctor may need to tailor and optimise your medicines to reduce your symptoms.

Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.
