Mr. Lybrate-user, if you are in good health and diabetes and hypertension are in check, then my advise is to continue present treatment. If you want to take other medicines as a supportive therapy you may go ahead. I have seen a number of patients who were well controlled on modern medicine and suddenly decided to switch over to ayurvedic drugs have come back with totally uncontrolled blood sugar levels (400 mg plus). And high bp. So please be careful.

If LDL cholesterol has been as high as you have mentioned and it is now 900 mg/dl then you need to understand a few things - 1) In indian scenario safe limit of LDL is 110 mg/dl or less a value more than this increases the risk of heart attack and the higher it gets the higher the risk. 2) This value is too high and according to the weight and height you have mentioned he is overweight also, so your husband's full lipid profile as well as medical work up should be done to understand why is he having such a high value. So please consult a cardiologist for tests like ecg, echo, liver function test, Kidney function test, TMT etc risk factor evaluation etc and starting of treatment 3) The dose of crestor given in march was inadequate for such a high LDL value. Maximum dose should have been started. And you should start it now without any delay. 4) In addition to medicines You should also begin with lifestyle changes like - eating a healthy diet both for weight loss and cholesterol control (Take a dietician consult for a diet chart), daily brisk walking, start slowly and increase to 40-45 mins per day, quit smoking and alcohol. But it is very important that you get your husband evaluated and treatment started by a cardiologist as early as possible. So please don't delay in seeking medical help and treatment. Take care.

I am suffering from depression from last 10 years. Now a days I feel slow pain around my heart what should I do?
Depression always follows with anxiety and obsession. Happens because depressed people tend to sit idle for long time. Idle mind is devil's workshop. Sitting idle manifests obsession. Anxiety creates acidity. Acidity and obsession together creates many weird symptoms across body. I suggest one or two counseling sessions with psychotherapy techniques to cure your disorders.

Peripheral Artery Disease - How Can It Be Diagnosed & Treated?

Peripheral Artery Disease - How Can It Be Diagnosed & Treated?

Peripheral artery disease is a condition brought about by the partial blocking of the main arteries that carry pure blood from the heart to the different parts of the body. When the block occurs or when the flow of blood is restricted, then the functions are directly affected since they may not receive sufficient blood at regular intervals. The most frequently observed form of the peripheral artery disease is the feeling of pain in the legs while walking.

Though it is in the legs that most people seem to find the pain initially, there are other parts of the body like the arms, stomach, head and even the kidneys. As mentioned, the trouble starts when the body is not able to burn enough fat and it deposits itself in the inside walls of the blood vessels leading to these cramp like conditions. These deposits are also known as plaques. Within the medical field, the peripheral artery disease can also be identified or called by other names such as Atherosclerosis or peripheral vascular disease and so on.

Diagnosis of the disease
As with any health condition, the specialist will do a physical examination of the part which you complain is giving you the pain and will ask you a series of questions regarding your personal details, family history and any previous complaints of this sort or of different nature. The best way the doctors would confirm if it is a peripheral artery disease is by a process called ankle-brachial index. This involves finding the differential between the pressure of the blood in your body, in the arms which are closer to the heart, and the legs the farthest. This could reveal to the doctor if the rate of flow of blood to the farthest part like the feet is the same as to the arms. If the doctor finds a substantial difference in the blood circulation, then the doubt increases. The advanced diagnostic tests needed to confirm a case of peripheral artery disease include the Doppler and Ultrasound tests, Angiography and Magnetic resonance Angiography (MRA). These tests will give conclusive evidence to the doctor that it is indeed a case of peripheral artery disease.

Treatment for Peripheral Artery Disease
There are different ways in which the peripheral artery disease can be countered. One way is to change the lifestyle and food habits of the affected person. Since it is obvious that the deposition of plaque from the fatty foods consumed by the person is responsible for the condition, merely stopping the consumption of such items can have a salutary effect. Other steps like quit smoking, if you were into this bad habit, exercising regularly and taking suitable medication as prescribed can treat the condition. In severe cases, procedures like Angioplasty might have to be performed.

Coronary Artery Disease - 6 Tips to Help You Manage It!

Coronary artery disease, also known as coronary heart disease or CHD, is a kind of disease in which a wax-like substance called plaque, builds up in the coronary arteries.

Function of Coronary Artery
The task of coronary arteries is to supply oxygen rich blood to the heart muscles. When there is the growth of plaque in these arteries, the condition is termed as atherosclerosis. Plaque builds up over the years, and it hardens or ruptures with time. When plaque gets hardened, it narrows the coronary arteries and thus disrupts the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscles causing coronary heart diseases. Millions of people are diagnosed with heart diseases, nowadays.

Though it is true that living with a heart disease is not easy, it is not impossible either. Many people are successfully leading a happy life in spite of having such diseases. With some major changes in your lifestyle, food habits and with the help of exercises and a healthy diet, it is possible to enjoy a happy life, irrespective of your diseases. 

Here are six ways that would help you to lead a better life, even if you have been diagnosed with coronary artery disease.

  1. Lifestyle changes: This is the first point that needs to be kept in mind if you are a CAD patient. Lifestyle changes are essential to make for a better health and life. Smoking and drinking have to be given up completely. It is advised to avoid secondary smoke, as much as possible.
  2. Exercises: This is the next important activity that needs to be a part of your daily routine to lead a healthy life. Consult with a doctor about the types of exercise that would suit your conditions. Some common exercises that would help are walking, jogging, and swimming, for at least 30 minutes at the most. Choose whichever activity you like doing. The motive of exercises is to get your heart-rate up.
  3. A Heart healthy diet: Get a chart prepared for your diet by a dietitian or by your doctor. This will keep your disease from getting worse. Stick to a heart-healthy eating plan, which consists of foods that can lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, etc. Include more fruits, vegetables, and other high fibre foods in your daily diet. Go for foods that are low in saturated fats, trans-fats, and cholesterol. Try to include fish into your diet.
  4. Maintain a healthy weight: Being overweight or obese aggravates any disease. So it is important to keep your body weight perfect.
  5. Taking medicines as prescribed: It is important to take medicines regularly and as prescribed by the physician.
  6. Keeping tensions, anxiety to a minimum: These will make the situation worse if you are CAD patient. So try to keep tension and anxiety away and lead a healthy life.

Avoid excess salt in diet take 8-10 glass water daily avoid fried and spicy food and coffee take a nutritious diet and a early morning walk start doing kapal bhati pranayam daily for 15 minutes. To start with do for 3-5 minutes nd slowly increase upto 15 minutes. The procedure for doing this asana is o sit in a comfortable crossed leg posture, sukasana (using padmasana or vajrasanais the best) and keep your back straight. Rest your hands on the knees using gyana mudra or chin mudra. O inhale deeply trough your nose, this will expand you abdomen. O exhale using a great force so that your abdominal muscles contract to the maximum o these exhalations are similar to your breath outs, but they should be forceful o make sure while exhaling, the air should be pushed out of your lungs by contracting the diaphragm o after exhalation again do inhalation, but this time with out any effort. To do this just relax your lungs, they will automatically expand and fill with air o one cycle of kapalabhati pranayama include one deep inhalation, then forceful exhalation and an effortless inhalation. O a learner can practice up to three rounds, each with 15 exhalations. Small breaks between each round are allowed.
