Recently after reading the ECG, Chief Physician asked us to consult a Cardiologist. He advised for taking a Echogram. Doctor said that there is nothing to worry at all about the Heart but the Heart is slightly larger due to the fact that my wife is a BP patient for over 15 years, taking amlopres L regularly. He said BP patients do generally have a slightly bigger heart. My wife is having gum problems as well she is not having arousal and desire. Do you want me to do any specific Test for Heart functioning and if so what are the tests to be carried out. My Wife is 58 years old.

Dear lybrateuser, -if the cardiologist has not recommended any further tests then not required -she should do exercise like regular brisk walking for about an hour on most days of the week to reduce her weight -avoid fried, junk food & amount of daily saturated & trans fat in diet, more fruits & vegetables in daily diet -do check for her blood sugar levels as her probems as mentioned by you could be due to high sugar levels or side effect of bp drugs she is taking -also get her checked up by a dentist for her gum problem.

Dear lybrate-user, bp tends to fluctuate depending upon time, activity level, stress and anxiety, type of diet, smoking or drinking, any medicine use like pain killer etc. If you are worried, then you should maintain a chart of his bp which will give a pattern. Apart from this factors related to bp rise also needs to be identified. Some lifestyle adjustment and if needed medicine dose adjustment may be required to control his bp.

How can arteriosclerosis be diagnosed?
Is there any link between arteriosclerosis and cholesterol levels?
Dear lybrate-user Arteriosclerosis is a disease of the blood vessel walls; typically when they get brazed or hardened. Cholesterol is wrongly blamed as being a culprit of depositions causing blockages. Cholesterol gets deposited only in the presence of toxic free radicals in the blood. And this condition is also called Atherosclerosis. You can diagnose blood vessel condition with a Carotid Dopplar.
