What can I do to prevent this from getting worse or having a heart problem again?

What can I do to prevent this from getting worse or having a heart problem again?
Hi We need to make few changes in our life to stay fit and healthy (if there is no medical condition): - Just walking alone is a very beneficial exercise which can help you stay in shape, feel more energetic, and get healthy. Always take stairs rather than taking an elevator. -Standing while you work can help your body get more activity than if you were just sitting down. Spend at least some of your work day standing instead of sitting in order to help your blood flow and maintain your muscles. -Do more chores. Lots of household chores actually involve a lot of exercise and being better about doing chores can be a great way for you to fit activity and exercise into your day. -Aim to exercise for a total of 30 minutes per day and you’ll easily be able to maintain your fitness level. -Some exercises will be more efficient than others, and choosing these more efficient exercises means that the small amount of time that you do spend exercising will really count. Try to choose exercises that focus on your core muscles, since your legs and arms can get activity through daily activities like lifting bags of groceries and walking a longer distance from your car. Try squats, planks, burpees. -Get indulge into some activity at home like riding a bicycle, swimming, playing active games with your kids. -Eating right. Cut out unhealthy fats and take in healthy fats. The easiest way to identify unhealthy fats is to look for “solid” fats, or fats that are solid at room temperature. Get plenty of protein. Protein will help you maintain your muscles and also give you the energetic feeling that you may be missing now that you’re getting less exercise. Good protein sources include skinless chicken, salmon, sardines, almonds, walnuts, peanuts and peas. Eat properly portioned, balanced meals. Generally, about ⅓ of your plate should be fruits and vegetables and ⅓ of your plate should be grains. The final third should be a mix of protein and low-fat dairy (cottage cheese, eggs, non-fat milk, etc). -Drinking enough water also has the added bonus of keeping your hunger level down, helping you to maintain the lower calorie count that you’ll be getting now that you’re not exercising as much. Medication: There is an old saying - ‘Prevention is always better than cure!’ So, take homoeopathic Heart Tonic by Schwabe Essentia Aurea /10-20 drops should be taken 3 times a day before meals. Take Care.

Hello, start giving her Rauvolfia 1x, 2 tabs in the morning and 1 tab in the evening. Home remedies to Control high BP:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium.So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart.If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day.

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to continue taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food Repeat you lipid profile every 3-4 months and once you control your cholesterol you can decrease and stop the medication slowly good luck.

A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying. Many people have just one or two panic attacks in their lifetimes, and the problem goes away, perhaps when a stressful situation ends. But if you've had recurrent, unexpected panic attacks and spent long periods in constant fear of another attack, you may have a condition called panic disorder. Panic attack can come in agoraphobia, when there is fear of places where there is no exit, in crowds, locked places, travelling far from home….etc. Although panic attacks themselves aren't life-threatening, they can be frightening and significantly affect your quality of life. But treatment can be very effective. Consult a Psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best for you.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Doctors often use the drug midodrine (orvaten) to raise standing blood pressure levels in people with chronic orthostatic hypotension. It works by restricting the ability of your blood vessels to expand, which raises blood pressure. Please Confirm cause for low bp you should do test echo, lipid profile,

Hi lybrate-user, there could be many reasons for your leg weakness. This could be your body’s way of saying you are walking too much, or it could be a symptom of a medical condition. I have discussed some of them here: 1. Muscle Fatigue - During any physical activity, you run the risk of tiring your muscles out and overexerting yourself. Although walking might not seem like a challenging activity, if you walk a long distance, wear unsupportive shoes, walk on pavement or other hard surface, or walk on a steep incline, you can wear your legs out. Dehydration, muscle strain and overuse can create aching and tiredness in your legs while you walk. 2. Medical Conditions - Certain medical conditions can lead to aching and tiredness in your legs while you walk as well. Atherosclerosis, blood clots, arthritis, nerve damage and varicose veins affect the nerves or blood supply to your legs. If you have spinal-nerve damage or leg-nerve damage, you might feel tingling or numbness that makes your legs feel tired. Medications such as diuretics and statins can also cause leg pain. Solutions: Symptom Relief - You can manage your symptoms and help your legs at home with rest and elevation. Use pillows to prop your legs up, above the level of your heart if possible. If they are feeling tired, avoid standing or strenuous activity for the remainder of the day. Place ice on your aching leg muscles to help relieve pain immediately. If there is no redness or swelling present, take a warm bath to soothe your muscles. If your pain persists, try an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain medication such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Another helpful treatment at home is to use wrap an elastic bandage around your legs. The compression from the bandage will help reduce pain and improve blood flow. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
