Hi lybrate user, at about 5 weeks gestation, your baby's heart begins to beat. At this point, a normal fetal heart rate is about the same heart rate as the mother's: about 80-85 beats per minute (bpm). So I think there is a development problem and rescan in a week to confirm diagnosis and to take further step.

I am suffering from cholesterol from 2 years and I want to know that is I m in risk of heart related diseases?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
I am suffering from cholesterol from 2 years and I want to know that is I m in risk of heart related diseases?
high cholesterol is risky for heart. 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.
