Light alcohol consumption was associated with a 25 per cent reduction in additional heart procedures, heart attacks or strokes. However, the study found heavy-drinking bypass patients - those who had six or more drinks a day - were twice as likely to die from heart problems. So the intake should be in moderate volume.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When a person develops hypothyroidism and if it is not detected, then it may show up as dyslipidemia, where lipids get disturbed. In this situation treating hypothyroidism and bringing it under control will invariably correct lipids also. There is no separate treatment needed. Most important is to bring down TSH around 3 to 4 mU/L with adequate dose of thyroxine. Plus follow the instructions given by your doctor. I hope your doubt is clarified. Thanks.

Dear Lybrateuser, -You should try to reduce your weight by diet & execise -if the pain happens repeatedly after climbing stairs then it may be angina, so reduce or avoid climbing & see if there is relief -also to rule out heart problem get tread mill test & echo test done, consult a doctor.

Hi anjan, what are your immediate health issues? your lipid profile values as you report look all good. Your triglyceride levels, although a little higher than the higher reference limit, can very well be controlled with a healthy & balanced diet, proper lifestyle with adequate room for daily exercise/ walking, relaxation and distressing. At the same time it is also advisable for one to restrict alcohol & stop smoking completely. As regards cholesterol, ldl cholesterol is, in fact, bad cholesterol while hdl cholesterol is the one which is good for our health. So no need to increase levels of ldl cholesterol. It is advisable that you get your reports verified by a general physician as well, Hope this helps. All the very best.

Hello sir, I have pain in left side down chest .when I start running fast. What should i do?

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Hello sir, I have pain in left side down chest .when I start running fast. What should i do?
This might be stiches which might be due to dehydration, overhydration, overeating too soon before running, being out of shape, erratic breathing patterns and lacking strength in your core muscles – which are the muscles of the abdomen and back. Less commonly, medication or an underlying medical disorder. To prevent so hydrate yourself well, avoid beverages before running, Work on increasing your endurance and strengthen the muscles of your abdomen and back. Gently stretch your abdominal area before running by twisting from side to side. Breathe evenly while running, taking three steps for every inhale and two steps for every exhale. Treatment: Stop running or slow your pace as soon as you start to feel the pain under your rib cage. Grab the affected area with your hand and apply pressure or massage it until the cramp goes away. Bending over at the waist can also help take pressure off the area. Breathe slowly, pushing your abdomen out when you inhale and relaxing it when you exhale. Drinking water might also offer some relief. If problem still persist consult to get yourself investigated for any underlying pathology present.

Dear hyperlipedemia is your condtion and in ihomoeopathic perspective it is due to more stress than the food which also plays a short role. So do some yoga or pranayam to reduce stress. Right homoeopathic medicine after assessing the cause of this condition will bring a permanent cure.

I am a 41 years old male. my total cholesterol and triglycerides level is border line. What should I do?
high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
