My dad underwent a medical check up yesterday I was going through the report. He is 54 years of age.in the physical examination in abnormalities LIPIDS-N/ABN was highlighted. On asking him about it he said that it's regular cholesterol and he has has been given medication for it. His cholesterol is 227 mg/dl and S.LDL-cholesterol is 164.4 mg/dl. These were highlighted as well. If you could just help me out to know what it is.in the report it was also highlighted to test this abnormality after every 4-6 weeks. Thank you. He does this checkup every year and it was the first time this was highlighted. Please help. THANK YOU.

Dear lybrate-user, Cholesterol is both our friend and foe - at normal levels, it is an essential substance for the body's normal functioning, but if levels in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts us at risk of a heart attack. Its quit high as per present control range guidelines. But it can be come under control with Healthy steps of Life style modification. Cholesterol medications main adverse effect is Muscles pain, Live damage. Several Advice to Control 1) Do regular Yog, Pranayam, Exercise 35-45 mins 2) Take diet on regular time 3) Drink plenty of boiled water. 4) Add organic til tail & Indian breed Desi cow's traditional made ghee in regular diet. 5) Diet pattern will be 2 Part solid food, 1part Liquid food, 1 part empty to digest food in stomach. For proper line of treatment consult nearest Ayurveda physician.

You are right that acidity can be confused with heart pain. Good to know that all tests related to heart are normal but anxiety of heart disease is bothering you. Why not. Even doctors are teaching people to bring in modifications in lifestyle and reducing stress and anxiety is one of the changes plus good food habits so that you don't suffer from acidity. You have to remind yourself everyday that there should be no heart related stress and you are lucky to have normal reports.

No body can say. It can happen any time or never. However with your parameters your chances of getting heart blockages is meager. You advised to go for a medical check up once a year. Do exercise and donot eat junk foods or fried foods. Eat lots of salsa and fruits and go for a day's fast every week.

Dear lybrate-user, you seem to be getting obsessive thoughts related to your health and have some paranoid ideations - though they may be only related to your anxiety state. I suggest you meet a psychiatrist or a psychologist and sort out the thing. The BP is related only to the extent that anxiety state increase the tendency to have high BP; this applies to your headache and breathing trouble as well - so the first thing is to meet a psychologist and sort out your anxiety; if that is successful, but the symptoms remain, that 's when you should consider other causes.

Hi Doc, If I turn vegan, from where do I get daily requirements of protein and minerals needed for healthy body. Isn't it better to have all types of food instead of adapting a vegan lifestyle and do some sort of physical exercise daily. What is real benefit of turning vegan besides improved cholesterol level and less risk of diabetes and other lifestyle diseases.

Mr. Lybrate-user, being a vegetarian is by ones own choice. Vegetarian diet also does provide all the necessary nutrients and proteins, when proper food selection is made. Whole grain foods, multiple grains usage, use of pulses in good quantity, use of soy beans and peanuts, chanas, etc. Does give good proteins. Milk and dahi, gives a good variety of proteins. Green leafy vegetables, multicloured vegetables, fruits and berries, dry fruits offer almost all needed nutrients. Vegetarian diet is good, advantageous but if you want to shift to other foods, there is no barrier. It always by choice. Thanks.

My husband has haemoglobin 17.5,cholesterol 209, bilirubin 1.37. What can be the reasons for high haemoglobin?
It is natural in males to have comparatively higher Hb. Nothing to worry as long as it remains within 17 g% range.

What should I do in my heart pain and what medicine I should take and how it will work?

What should I do in my heart pain and what medicine I should take and how it will work?
First make sure that pain is due to heart only, get ecg done and a blood test called troponin, through a drop of blood taken by finger prick, spread on a strip, if 2 lines, test is positive. Medicines are given according to severity of disease but to prevent more damage in a suspected heart attack, it is advised to take a soluble aspirin and rush to hospital.

You are bothered about a weak heart, I would not suggest a cardiac check up, because symptom mentioned is only heart beat that increases suddenly, this happens to all of us, specially boys of your age with stress of college/ job or both, if not do 2 things at a time-work and study. Normal heart beat of an athletic person / gymn going / exercising regularly is low - 60- 70 resting. In people who do not have any kind of exercise, slight worry / climbing stairs / excitement of a tv show like cricket increases to 100 + and resting pulse is around 80. You do not have a weak heart according to the symptom mentioned by you. If you need more guidance, you can reply on this forum with more details so that if need be some basic tests can be done, just to reassure you.

Death can occur in 1st heart attack if help is not given in time to an otherwise perfect looking person. Attack does not come through blood in the mouth but it might have been a symptom of internal bleeding due to rupture of blood vessels.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat. (biochemic) kali dichrom 12x, bio combination number 7, (homeo) gymnema sylvestre q, syzygium jambolanum. Its for diabetes.
