High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC . Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap.

How to reduce cholesterol i.e LDL. what to do?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How to reduce cholesterol i.e LDL. what to do?
Fight cholesterol with food by making these simple changes to your diet and lifestyle There is little doubt that choice of food is the best medicine not just for a sound and healthy heart but also for lowering blood cholesterol levels. This is best done by cutting back on saturated fats and limiting other cholesterol-rich foods. Says holistic health guru, "About 80 per cent of the body's cholesterol is manufactured in the liver and 20 per cent is derived from dietary sources. By itself the cholesterol found in food is safe but becomes a health concern when it gets oxidised as is seen in processed foods, cakes and cake mixes, cured and processed meats, dehydrated milk." Food sources The most common sources of dietary cholesterol are animal products like eggs, red meat, dairy products and shellfish like prawns. Many people often ask if eggs are hazardous to health. Says Mehta, "The truth is that if you are leading a healthy and active lifestyle and if you have normal cholesterol levels, having 3-4 eggs a week will not cause much harm. Saturated animal fats and transfats found in processed foods are the real enemies." Healthy digestion and consumption of healthy fibre-rich foods help to maintain a constant level of cholesterol in the blood stream. But this level can change or rise with age, a diet high in saturated fats and a poor lifestyle. "A diet high in polyunsaturated fats and fibre helps to lower levels of blood cholesterol while a diet high in meats, cream, full cream dairy products and white flour tends to increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood thereby increasing the risk of heart diseases," says Mehta. Good and bad cholesterol A common question that is often asked is how to increase the good cholesterol known as HDL (high-density lipoproteins) and how to decrease the bad cholesterol known as LDL (low-density lipoproteins). This can be done by increasing your intake of fruits, vegetables like greens, broccoli, capsicums and other high-fibre vegetables. It's also advised to increase one's consumption of oils that have beneficial effects on your health. Oils high in omega-3 fats found in soya beans, walnuts, fish oils, flax seed oil and olive oil are useful in raising the HDL levels. Restricting your intake of foods like saturated fats from red meats, cheese, cream, high fat milk, junk foods and processed foods will go a long way in reducing your LDL or the bad cholesterol.

you take tab.atorvas-10 1hs, cap. ecosprin 150 mg 1hs. tab. thyronorm 100 mcg 1bbf. cap.pantop dsr 1 bbf. Even if you have years of unhealthy eating under your belt, making a few changes in your diet can reduce cholesterol and improve your heart health. Choose healthier fats. Saturated fats, found primarily in red meat and dairy products, raise your total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol. As a rule, you should get less than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat. Choose leaner cuts of meat, low-fat dairy and monounsaturated fats — found in olive and canola oils — for healthier options. Eliminate trans fats. Trans fats affect cholesterol levels by increasing the "bad" cholesterol and lowering the "good" cholesterol. This bad combination increases the risk of heart attacks. Trans fats can be found in fried foods and many commercial products, such as cookies, crackers and snack cakes. But don't rely on packages that are labeled "trans fat-free." In the United States, if a food contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat in a serving, it can be labeled "trans fat-free." Even small amounts of trans fat can add up if you eat foods that contain small amounts of trans fat. Read the ingredient list, and avoid foods with partially hydrogenated oils. Eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids don't affect LDL cholesterol. They have other heart benefits, such as helping to increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or "good") cholesterol, reducing your triglycerides, a type of fat in your blood, and reducing blood pressure. Some types of fish — such as salmon, mackerel and herring — are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Other good sources of omega-3 fatty acids include walnuts, almonds and ground flaxseeds. Increase soluble fiber. There are two types of fiber — soluble and insoluble. Both have heart-health benefits, but soluble fiber also helps lower your LDL levels. You can add soluble fiber to your diet by eating oats and oat bran, fruits, beans, lentils, and vegetables. Add whey protein. Whey protein is one of two proteins in dairy products — the other is casein. Whey protein may account for many of the health benefits attributed to dairy. Studies have shown that whey protein given as a supplement lowers both LDL and total cholesterol. You can find whey protein powders in health food stores and some grocery stores. Follow the package directions for how to use them.

At midnight suddenly realised faster heart beats. With dry tongue and often thirst. What are possible reasons behind all these? Is it a heart related issue?

Heart rate varies with the demand of oxygen in the body so when we exercise it gets increased and when we take rest it is at its base level. Generally there is no such reason for the heart to increase its rate at rest but the autonomic nervous system of the body which regulates heart beat may do so if its sympathetic component is stimulated due to some emotional overdrive like fear, nervousness, nightmares etc. The effect is dryness of mouth, increased rate of heart beats etc. If there is no other relevant symptom like chest pain, breathing distress etc, then should not be anything to worry else get a thorough check up to be assured.

heart rate is the heart beat per minute. normal is 60-90 per minute andBlood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. Each time the heart beats (about 60-70 times a minute at rest), it pumps out blood into the arteries.

Dear friend, all oils are the same. You must reduce your weight to about 59 kgs. Reduce fat starch sugar intake. Eat more vegetables and fruits. You and your kids can eat the same oil but the quantity in your case should much lower.
