Avoid using salt. Rock salt can be used as alternative. Towel dipped in ice cold water should put as pack on spine. Should change towel frequently. Do it for 10 mins. Do brahmari pranayama for 10 mins per day.

When I run my heart beat became fast why it happen so pls tell me.

BAMS
General Physician,
When I run my heart beat became  fast why it happen so pls tell me.
When you run or do any exercises, your muscles starts acting (contraction and relaxation) and there is demand for more blood supply to the muscles. To meet the demands the heart starts pumping more blood which results in increased heart rate.

No constipation is due to wrong and irregular intake food. And less water intake. You should have lots of leafy vegetables and cereals lean meat like chicken and fish if you are non vegetarian. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. Do not take spicy and junk food. The heart burn is duebto hyperacidity. Take regular milk in regular intervals. Milk is a good antacid.

White patches can be due to uncontrolled sugar. You need to have sugar in control. And it will subside itself. Go for your glucose levels and hba1c levels. Do reply with reports.

How do I take cure with my blood pressure problem ? Which gets low many of times.

How do I take cure with my blood pressure problem ? Which gets low many of times.
Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

My mom is a patient of high bp and diabetes and she felt weak always and I want to confirm about some diet products for daily consumption which suits her body and make her feel healthy and energetic so please help me for this. I will be really thankful to you.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing is diabetes has to be controlled effectively so also the bp. If blood sugar is high, there is a regular loss of glucose through urine. This leads to weakness. She should aim to achieve fasting sugar closer to 100 mg and pp around 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. Bp should be 130 / 80 mm hg. If this is done generally tiredness and weakness do not remain. Diet has to be based on ideal body weight (58 kgs), present sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Information about present dietary intake also is necessary. The steps to be followed are: avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat items like cheese, processed fried foods and red meat, ghee and butter. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Permitted fruits about 100 g a day can be taken.

Hi , chest pain in tb is usually caused by fluid collection in the chest wall, did you have pleural effusion at diagnosis. If you still having pain after 1.5 months of treatment, you need to be evaluated for drug resistance.

Probably it may b due to anaemia. Do blood test. If no anaemia found rule out thyroid. Check your bmi. Your bp and also chest x ray if all reports are normal also do 2 d echo. If cardiologist advise angiography go for it. All reports all normal then anxiety should b treated.

I am 47 years female with diabetes, hypertension and hypothyroidism. Have been taking medicines and vitamin/iron supplements for deficiencies. Now I have a question regarding a particular diet. LCHF-Low carbohydrate high fat diet is very popular for diabetics where they adopt 20% carb/20%protein/60% fat since we all diabetics have problem of carbohydrates metabolism. I wish to ask whether 20% carb intake is enough for normal functioning of body? Due to ketosis and ketogenic effect, where body uses ketone instead of glucose in absence of glucose availability due to low carbs, can such diet work long time and effective in lowering blood sugar levels? I have seen people adopting such diets and either use minimal drugs or even without medicines they manage their diabetes with this kind of low carb diet. Pl tell me how to go about it if I wish to manage my diabetes with the help of low or moderate carbs plus how many calories total I should take in a day as a women and with all these medical conditions with an almost sedentary lifestyle. What percentage of carbs intake is an ideal to follow for a diabetic with hypothyroidism if we take 1600 calorie diet? I read that too low carb intake can again damage thyroid.

Being a person who manages dozens of different varieties of diabetics daily, I don't believe in such fads. I believe a diabetic should have a sensible diet, regular & moderate exercise, relaxed, stressfree lifestyle, good quality sleep and abstain from tobacco (if possible, from alcohol too). All these "percentage diets" are useless.

Dear lybrateuser, -Your problem could be due to bony or soft tissue problem -do not strain, bend, lift weight or do any exercise till pain reduces -apply pain relief gel lightly on the area three times a day -take a pain relief tablet after meals 2-3 times a day -if not much relief then x-ray chest has to be done & consult a doctor.

What is the best way to reduce cholesterol?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What is the best way to reduce cholesterol?
Hello dear 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 .
