Thank you for the query. As per the history you have provided, you are hypertensive (BP 130/90 mm of Hg, on Tenormin 25 and Stamlo 5 mg), have hyperlipidemia (raised cholesterol) and non-diabetic. It would be helpful, if you would have posted the reprots of the lipid profile. Itis advisable to maintain your Total cholesterol <200 mg%, LDL <120 mg% and HDL >45 mg%. The Triglyceride level should be <150 mg%. Since you have limited walking capacity, you need to modify on the diet. Reduce the intake of saturated fat (ghee, butter etc) and refined carbohydrate. The Statin (Atorvastatin, Rosuvastatin) group of medications is effective in reducing cholesterol, but should be taken only after consulting your physician. Regards.

Hi , I have been following a bad diet routine for last 6-7 months . Always eating outside. Last week I did a normal Cholesterol check and found it to be 237. Then I consulted a doctor. We did a full lipid profile where LDL found to be 182 and HDL to be 32. Alos the blood pressure was 139/88 in first reading . The second reading was 140/100 but it was taken the next day after office hours and travel . The doctor has prescribed one medicine for Cholesterol and one for BP . My question is that should I follow the medicine or there is still chance of lowering the blood pressure by lifestyle changes.

Dear lybrate-user, looks like all bcz of inappropriate life style. To claim an asymptomatic person having high bp, one must have two reading of high bp 24 hrs apart. If you have already started medicine, stick to it & modify your lifestyle which includes healthy diet, regular routine & daily 40 minutes exercise.

My heart beats more n more than a simple heartbeat and my windpipe gets problem while taking air. Soo now wat can I do?

My heart beats more n more than a simple heartbeat and my windpipe gets problem while taking air. Soo now wat can I do?
Heart palpitations are a feeling that your heart is beating too hard or too fast, skipping a beat, or fluttering. You may notice heart palpitations in your chest, throat, or neck. Heart palpitations can be bothersome or frightening. They usually aren't serious or harmful, though, and often go away on their own. Most of the time, they're related to stress and anxiety or to consumption of stimulants such as caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol. Palpitations also often occur during pregnancy. In rare cases, palpitations can be a sign of a more serious heart condition. Therefore, if you have heart palpitations, make arrangements to see your doctor. And seek immediate medical attention if along with palpitations, you experience shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, or fainting. A thorough physical examination and Medical History of your problem is required to rule out for any underlying cause. If an underlying cause is found, the right treatment can reduce or eliminate palpitations. If your palpitations are not related to an underlying cause, lifestyle changes, including stress management and the avoidance of common triggers, can help prevent them. Causes of Heart Palpitations Many things can cause heart palpitations. In majority of cases, the cause is either related to your heart or is unknown. Non-heart-related causes of palpitations include: • Strong emotions such as anxiety, fear, or stress; palpitations often occur during panic attacks. • Vigorous physical activity • Caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, or illegal street drugs such as cocaine and amphetamines • Medical conditions, including thyroid disease, a low blood sugar level, anemia, low blood pressure, fever, and dehydration • Hormonal changes during menstruation, pregnancy, or the perimenopausal period; sometimes, palpitations during pregnancy are signs of anemia. • Medications, including diet pills, decongestants, asthma inhalers, and some drugs used to prevent arrhythmias (a serious heart rhythm problem) or treat an underactive thyroid • Certain herbal and nutritional supplements • Abnormal electrolyte levels Some people experience palpitations after eating heavy meals that are rich in carbohydrates, sugar, or fat. Sometimes, eating foods with high levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG), nitrates, or sodium can bring them on. If you have heart palpitations after eating certain foods, the problem could be food sensitivity. Keeping a food diary can help you identify which foods to avoid. Palpitations can also be related to underlying heart disease. When they are, palpitations are more likely to represent arrhythmia. Heart conditions associated with palpitations include: • Prior heart attack • Coronary artery disease • Other heart problems such as congestive heart failure, heart valve problems, or heart muscle problems In you case and at your age there is a strong possibility that yours is a stressv related problem and start doing stress management exercises especially BRAMARI PRANAYAM daily for 10 minutes and avoid habit of over eating and control on your weight but again I will suggest you to consult your doctor or with me in person as I can only come to a correct diagnosis after physical examination. Being a Homoeopath I will advise you to take following medicine alongwith which will surely help you . ACONITE NAP 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 5-10 minutes during increased heart beat .Take it till your heart beat is normal.

Mr. Lybrate-user, pyorrhea is invariably due to unhealthy food habits, not taking enough care to clean the mouth, lack of vitamin c and infection due to injury to gums etc. Proper brushing and regular massaging the gums and use of astringent gels helps in controlling bleeding in gums. Plus regular vitamin c supplement should be used. Use mouth wash regularly to control oral infection. Better to consult a near by dental surgeon.

It's just a matter of reviewing his case at frequent intervals and achieving an ideal BP ( or to at least bring it to 130/90 and not more than that. ) Keep checking the BP at different times ( morning and night ) and be in touch with the doctor. Let the doctor decide the treatment part. The other health parameters should also be checked along with some investigations. Your father should adapt a very healthy lifestyle ( including a healthy attitude - leading a stress-free life ). He can learn Yoga ( including pranayam and meditation) so that the quality of life improves which will reflect in his BP coming down naturally. You can also include homeopathy as it is very effective and yet gentle on all age groups and brings back a natural harmony in the mind-body complex.

All your cardiac investigations are normal Sensitivity of echo and tmt combined together is more then 70% in diagnosing heart problem As your chief complaint was palpitation with dizziness I would suggest you to go for 24 hour holter monitoring test If that is normal ,it was because of gastritis or acid peptic disorder Thank you.

Our heart has how many chambers and how did it works and how can we care our heart.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Our heart has how many chambers and how did it works and how can we care our heart.
Your heart has 4 chambers. The upper chambers are called the left and right atria, and the lower chambers are called the left and right ventricles. A wall of muscle called the septum separates the left and right atria and the left and right ventricles. The left ventricle is the largest and strongest chamber in your heart. The left ventricle's chamber walls are only about a half-inch thick, but they have enough force to push blood through the aortic valve and into your body.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Chest pain at your age could be due to hyperacidity, stress, anxiety or sedentary habit -avoid spicy, fried & junk food, have fresh homemade food, do not skip meals, keep your meal timings fixed, have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than 3 large meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 7-8 glasses of water per day for proper digestion -take syrup Gelusil, 2 teaspoonful 20 min after every meal -do regular exercises like walking, jogging, swimming for 30 min, also do yoga & deep breathing exercises for 5-10 min in the morning to relieve stress & for good blood circulation -keep yourself relaxed as getting excited can lead to pain -also get your BP checked up, if not much relief then have to do investigations & consult a doctor.
