Dear Lybrate user, 249 is value of cholesterol which indiacates a treatment plan and lifestyle modifications is required. please understand whats a cholesterol and of its types. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that occurs naturally in the body. It performs several vital functions. It is needed to make the walls surrounding the body's cells and is the basic material that is converted to certain hormones. Your body makes all the cholesterol you need. You need only a small amount of fat in your diet to make enough cholesterol to stay healthy. The fat and cholesterol you eat are absorbed in the intestine and transported to the liver. The liver converts fat into cholesterol, and releases cholesterol into the bloodstream. There are two main types of cholesterol: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol). High levels of LDL cholesterol are linked to atherosclerosis, which is the accumulation of cholesterol-rich fatty deposits in arteries. This can cause arteries to narrow or become blocked, slowing or stopping the flow of blood to vital organs, especially the heart and brain. Atherosclerosis affecting the heart is called coronary artery disease, and it can cause a heart attack. When atherosclerosis blocks arteries that supply blood to the brain, it can cause a stroke. Symptoms Most people with high cholesterol don't have any symptoms until cholesterol-related atherosclerosis causes significant narrowing of the arteries leading to their hearts or brains. The result can be heart-related chest pain (angina) or other symptoms of coronary artery disease, as well as symptoms of decreased blood supply to the brain (transient ischemic attacks or stroke). For treatment part, You must avoid excessive tea/ coffee (more than two cups). Avoid any of habits of smoking, drinking, tobacco/pan masala chewing. Start regular exercise for half hour. Take proportionate vegetarian diet (avoid cheese, paneer, butter). We achieved great success in treating patients of increased cholesterol with ayurvedic medication. Start with these basic medicines, and consult us as early as possible. 1) medohar guggulu500 mg twice day 2) prabhakar vati500 mg twice day 3) arogyavardhini vati500 mg twice day please remember, if any of your parents or siblings with history of heart disease, diabetes, obesity then consider it as alarm and do lifestyle modifications asap. Hope this answers your query. Feel free to consult us for any further questions and treatment guidelines. Thank you.

Dear Lybrateuser, - You may have the feeling of missed beat due to stress, anxiety or any other unknown reason - avoid more than 1-2 cups of tea, coffee per day, also alcohol, tobacco, smoking if you do - do regular exercise like brisk walking, jogging, swimming, cycling for 20-30 min a day, also do yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 10-15 min in the morning as it will keep your body fit & calm your mind - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed, do not nap for more than 30 min in the day if you do so, do not drink tea, coffee late in the evening or aerated drinks as they disturb sleep, a restful sleep at night is the best for the body & heart & will help solve your problem.

My husband is detected with high bp. Initial reading was at 150/90 when he was put under medication of Nexovas 10 mg. He is just 33 years of age and does regular strength and cardio exercise. He wanted to reduce his BP with proper diet and exercise so he stopped taking tablet after 1 week and increased his exercise and switched to low sodium diet. His BP came down to 120. After 7-10 days he got fever and dizziness so went to general physician who mentioned his bp has gone upto 150. He was asked to do lipid profile test and detected with high LDI cholesterol of 140.6. The general physician put him under HH Rosu 10 mg to reduce LDI. Since he has consulted another doctor earlier for BP he went back to him to take his opinion on medication and show him lipid test. He asked to stop HH ROSU and put him under 80 mg Azilsartan Medoxomil 80 mg. We are totally confused what is good for him and what he should continue. We want his bp to control without any side effect of high dose medication. Suggest.

Hi, Our targets for BP should be <140/90 most of the time. You can try life style modification but if your BP remains higher than targets, Then we should use medicines, which should be on regular basis. Initially we can use one medicine if not controlled by one drug, we can add other drug or increase the dose of 1st one. For LDL of 140, we can wait and try to control it with lifestyle modifications without medicines. But If LDL is associated with other disease like Diabetes or Coronary Artery Disease we should use medicines.

Please keep taking the tablets daily. These tablets are used to prevent future heart attacks and needs to be given daily. Now if we talk about In general every patient who has a significant blockage in the heart or has a history of heart attack should be porn at least 4 types of medications 1) Antiplatelets which increase the clotting time of blood and decrease chances of future heart attacks and Re-stenosis of the stent. Initially you are kept on two types of antiplatelets and depending upon your disease and your progress your then shifted to single antiplatelet after 6 months or 1 year.  Eg: ecosprin, clopidogrel, Prasugrel, brillianta 2) Statins - are cholesterol lowering medications which are supposed to again prevent future heart attacks.  Eg. Tonact / atorvas 3) ARB / ACE Inhibitors - which help decreasing pressure on the heart and prevents remodeling injuries. Eg. Cardace / telma 4) Beta Blockers - They decrease the heart rate thereby reducing the work load on the heart. Also decrease BP a bit. Eg. Atenolol / Betaloc/ metolar usually all post angioplasty patients are kept on at least these 4 types of medications and depending upon the side effects and contraindications of medications are changed and slowly over period of time the dosage of these medications are decreased depending upon the recovery.

Dear lybrate-user, I can feel your concern for your father's health. Firstly understand that every medicine you take will have some side effects but we as doctors choose the best in each category. Also, by taking medications for diabetes control we can reduce the rate of complications and hence taking medicines is better option than leaving diabetes untreated or treating it with unconventional means!

Hye. Thank you for your query. There is chances you are not eating the right foods at the right time when needed by the body. There could possibly change in your activity levels. Your body might be trying to break down from within causing loss of weight. On its own vitamin d supplemention cannot cause weight loss. Assess the changes that may have happened in your lifestyle and improve on them.

My cholesterol is high, please suggest me diet regarding this.
And I have vitamin d deficiency also.
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to continue / start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food good luck.
