Both are dangerous and life threatening. Reasons and factors leading to both are same. In stroke the blood vessels carrying blood to brain get blocked and in heart attack the blood vessels carrying blood to heart are blocked. Since factors are same, so is the prevention of the diseases.

Start brisk walking tab. Diabetic diet and do exercise. Avoid sweets. Salad missi roti ,green vegetables and fruits all decreases triglycerides. If not controlled then fibrates drugs should be used.

After 1 heart attack he didn't give up smoking, I am sure the treating doctors must have suggested to stop smoking and exposure to pollution and to make lifestyle modifications to control bp and keep sugar levels within healthy range. Though he needs to help himself to quit smoking as he is affecting others also due to second hand smoking, you can try to counsel him about the basics to prevent another heart attack. Btw what was the treatment for heart attack. Do get back with a positive feedback.

Hello Lybrate user according to ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Home Remedy- Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Treatment- 1-take sarpgandha vati twice a day. 2-yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. 3-Take pranacharya no tens capsule twice a day Diet-avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

How much heart beat required in normal man according to his weight please explain it.
A normal adult resting heart beat is between 60-100 heartbeats per minute. If you r overweight and have excess fat and have sedentary lifestyle, heart beats may increase to meet your body's oxygen demands. Hope I answered your query.

I am taking cholestrinum 3x tab (schwabey) thrice daily and acid benz 30/5 drops thrice daily. My last report (done on 09.05. 14 at r. N. Tagore international hospital of cardiac science) triglycerides was 663. And uric acid was 8.6. How many days may I continue this medicines. I am also taking 1 lemon with warm water in the morning and garlic also. Maintaining daily excercise not less than 30 mints.

Hello sir, as per your information your heart is fine, but your triglycerides and uric acid are very high. Along with medication you need some diet restrictions 1. Diet avoid meat/chicken/all types of dal/ oily food 2. Brisk walking 5 km a day about medicines, since when you are taking above medicines? keep 3 monthly check up of triglycerides and uric acid. Start lycopodium 30 3 times and check your levels. It will be best if you take treatment from proper homoeopath. Thank you.

Food source reach in sodium is preferable like tomato potato green veg curd milk. But diet for hypotention is different for person to person. It is depend on many factors like history, cause, medicines, life style etc. You need day to day diet plan.

Dear madam, treatment of lifestyle diseases like high bp, diabetes, high cholesterol etc needs long term commitment in terms of lifestyle modification along with drug therapy. You need to be patient with the outcome. Changing doctors does not help, since treatment is same. If bp is not contolled your doctor can increase the dose or add another. But that has to be done gradually but systematically. So just relax and follow your doctors advice.

My son is 3.7 years old and having large vsd. And doctor said he is not opera-table so tell me what I have to do?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello large vsd can lead to pulmonary hypertension. In case of even large vsd with pulmonary hypertension I recommend to go for surgery till 9 months to 1 year of age. Till this age the pulmonary hypertension is usually reversible and improves over a period of time. After that one should go for o2 study or cath study before labelling the vsd as inoperable. I have seen many a case in which surgeons have refused to operate even when operability is there. I shall be better able to help you out if you send me the echo report or cath study if done. Regards.
