Dear lybrateuser, -your breathing problem could be due to lung problem or due to heart problem if there is no other accompanying symptom -get x- ray chest, pft (pulmonary function test), ecg tmt done to know the exact cause -the pain & nauseating feeling could be due to acidity -take your meals on time, do not miss meals, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, eat dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 7-8 glasses of water to flush out the toxins & for proper digestion.

To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily.

Your Echo report is just showing the impact of high blood pressure on the heart, and even though it is not very serious at present, itis a sign that you should start getting treated for BP and get it under control or else it will keep harming other body organs as well. Consult a local cardiologist for proper evaluation of cause of BP and for starting treatment. Also start exercising daily, begin gradually, increase to 45 mins daily, avoid smoking, drinking and salt rich food and caffeine.

What is the cause of high cholesterol in our body and cause heart related problems.
If we eat oily food and have a sedentary life style than our low density lipoprotein cholestrol increases in the blood which forms a thrombus along the walls of the arteries and which gives us problem after a long time.

I am 21 years old I had a past history of syncope last year this year too faced the same conditions what should be done for it the doctors had detected the situation as syncope last year when I was admitted same happened this time what should be done for it? please guide me through it.

General Physician,
I am 21 years old I had a past history of syncope last year this year too faced the same conditions
what should be do...
Syncope is due to a temporary reduction in blood flow and therefore a shortage of oxygen to the brain. This leads to lightheadedness or a "black out" episode, a loss of consciousness. Temporary impairment of the blood supply to the brain can be caused by heart conditions and by conditions that do not directly involve the heart: If you do not have any medical illness, you have to control mind and take care to avoid long standing and keep moving if you have to stand for long time Syncope is most commonly caused by conditions that do not directly involve the heart. These conditions include: Postural (orthostatic) hypotension: Drop in blood pressure due to changing body position to a more vertical position after lying or sitting; Dehydration causing a decrease in blood volume. Blood pressure medications leading to low blood pressure. Diseases of the nerves to the legs in older people (especially with diabetes or Parkinson's disease) when poor tone of the nerves of the legs draws blood into the legs from the brain.

Dear I don't suggest medicines for cholesterol. This is made in liver as per body needs. Don't disturb natural ways of body. Food doesn't alter blood cholesterol. Now creatinine level. Thus is slightly raised. Drink plenty of water so your urine is water coloured. Do this for 3 days. Repeat creatinine. If normal Be happy. Other wise call me. I will suggest you simple Ayurvedic remedy to correct this.

Her triglyceride level is high and the cholesterol level is also in just higher range. What medicine is required?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Her triglyceride level is high and the cholesterol level is also in just higher range. What medicine is required?
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 .
