There is no treatment for regurgitation apart from surgical correction. If the regurgitation is severe, it will be best that you get timely correction so that heart doesn't get impacted by this regurgitation.

Alkaline phosphatase 95, total Bilirubin 0.98 (0.3 direct+ 0.68 indirect), GGT 64, SGOT 44, SGPT 68, Serum Albumin 4.42, Serum Globulin 2.48, Total Protein 6.9 25 OH Vitamin D Total 6.54 HDL Cholesterol direct 29, Total cholesterol 208, LDL Cholesterol Direct 119, Triglycerides 313, VLDL CHOLESTEROL 62.55 & Non HDL CHOLESTEROL 178.7 Blood sugar fasting 125 These are the results of my blood test. I did a few other tests like creatine etc but they are in the normal range. I understand that the liver enzymes are a little high and so is my cholesterol & I am Vitamin D deficient. I drink 4-5 bottles (750 ml each) of beer (bottle says less than 6℅ alcohol) once a week & that's important for me to unwind myself after 5 working days. I eat non-veg regularly. I am thinking of having Cod liver capsule (please advise good brand), Livosin or any good liver tonic and having food like mackerel. Is that fine with the test results I have? I really don't want to stop the beer .Please help!

If you want to stay healthy and keep your Liver healthy and cholesterol in control, then you don't have an option except reducing your Alcohol intake significantly. The reason why both your Liver ezymes and cholesterol are deranged is because of high intake of alcohol, so taking Liver tonics is not going to help. Best would be to exercise daily, eat a healthy diet and reduce your alcohol consumption to 60-70 ml per day if you must.

You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems. Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure. Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock. Certain medicines and substances can lead to low blood pressure, including:     * Alcohol     * Anti-anxiety medicines     * Certain antidepressants     * Diuretics     * Heart medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure and coronary heart disease     * Medicines used for surgery     * Painkillers Other causes of low blood pressure include:     * Nerve damage from diabetes     * Changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias)     * Not drinking enough fluids (dehydration)     * Heart failure You can do a few things to prevent low blood pressure     * Drinking more fluids     * Getting up slowly after sitting or lying down     * Not drinking alcohol     * Not standing for a long time     * Using compression stockings so blood does not collect in the legs Get these test done to find cause of blood pressure problems tests include Thyroid functions, ECG, ECHO.

I feel pain in my left side chest while running over 2 km. So what can I do? Please suggest. I am 22 years old boy.
This condition results when the membrane that surrounds the lungs and lines the inside of the chest cavity becomes irritated and inflamed. Common causes include a viral infection, such as the flu, or a bacterial infection, such as bacterial pneumonia. When the left lung is affected, left-side pain will result.

Dear Lybrateuser, Pl remain relaxed and do not take tension. To rule out heart disease you can get an ECG done preferably whenever you are having palpitation.

कोरोनरी धमनी की बीमारी - Coronary Dhamni Ki Bimari!

कोरोनरी धमनी की बीमारी - Coronary Dhamni Ki Bimari!

हमारा हृदय कई समस्याओं का सामना करता है. कोरोनरी धमनी की बीमारी भी उन्हीं समस्याओं में से एक है. कोरोनरी धमनी की बीमारी रोग या कोरोनरी हृदय रोग एक गंभीर स्थिति है. इसमें हृदय को ऑक्सीजन और पोषक तत्वों युक्त रक्त पहुंचाने वाली धमनियां डैमेज हो जाती हैं. इसमें किया बार प्लाक बन जाता है. धमनियों पर कोलेस्ट्रॉल युक्त जमी प्लाक कोरोनरी धमनी को डैमेज कर देती है. कोरोनरी धमनियां के कारण प्‍लाक सिकुड़ जाती हैं. इसके कारण हार्ट को कम मात्रा में ब्लड प्राप्‍त होता है. इसलिए, ब्लड फ्लो में कमी होने के कारण सीने में दर्द शुरू हो सकता है या अन्य कोरोनरी धमनी की बीमारी के संकेत और लक्षण पैदा हो सकते हैं.

प्लाक के कारण कोरोनरी धमनियों में ब्लॉकेज से हार्ट अटैक का कारण बन सकती है. कोरोनरी हृदय समस्या विकसित होने में अक्सर बहुत समय लग जाता हैं. ऐसा भी होता है की हार्ट अटैक आने तक इस समस्या पर आपका ध्यान ही नहीं जाता है. कोरोनरी धमनी की बीमारी से बचाव और इसका उपचार करने के लिए बहुत कुछ कर सकते हैं. आप हेल्थी लाइफ स्टाइल को अपना कर इस दिशा में पहला कदम बढ़ा सकता है. सीएचडी एक बहुत ही सामान्य हृदय रोग है और मरने का एक मुख्य कारण है. इस रोग के कई जोखिम फैक्टर हैं जो एक दूसरे से संबंधित हैं. आइए कोरोनेरी धमनी की बीमारी के जोखिम बढ़ाने वाले फैक्टर को जानें.

1. स्मोकिंग-

धूम्रपान के कई नुकसान तो आप भी जानते ही होंगे. आज ये भी जान लीजिए कि स्मोकिंग करने से सीएडी का जोखिम अधिक हो जाता है. जो भी व्यक्ति धूम्रपान करते हैं उन्हें धूम्रपान न करने वालों की तुलना में हृदय रोग होने का खतरा हमेशा ज़्यादा होता है. नियमित व्यायाम, मजबूत इच्छाशक्ति से धूम्रपान करने वाले लोग इस आदत को कम या रोक सकते हैं. आप चाहें तो धूम्रपान की लत से छुटकारा पाने के लिए डॉक्टरी सलाह व मदद भी ले सकते हैं. धूम्रपान छोडने मात्र से ही हृदय सम्बन्धित रोगों की सम्भावना काफी हद तक कम हो जाती है. इसका सबसे प्रमुख कारण भी यही है.

2. हाई ब्लड प्रेशर-
हाई ब्लड प्रेशर भी कोरोनरी हृदय रोग की जोखिम को बढ़ा देता है. नियमित एक्सरसाइज से ब्लड प्रेशर को नियंत्रित कर सकते हैं. किसी काम या परिश्रम वाली गतिविधि के दौरान हार्ट मसल्स बॉडी की ऑक्सीजन की मांग के अनुसार तेजी से धड़कने लगती हैं. ब्लड वैस्कुलर, जो हार्ट को ऑक्सीजन युक्त ब्लड की आपूर्ति करती हैं, भी फ्लेक्सिबल हो जाती हैं और बेहतर तरीके से फैलने में सक्षम होती हैं, जिससे रक्त वाहिका अच्छे से कार्य करती है और हाई ब्लड प्रेशर का जोखिम कम हो जाती है. यदि नियमित रूप से एक्सरसाइज किया जाए तो कम या अधिक ब्लड प्रेशर वाले लोगों के सिस्टोलिक और डायस्टोलिक ब्लड प्रेशर सामान्य हो सकता है.

3. डायस्लीपिडिमि या मोटापा-
यह एक ऐसी समस्या है जिसमें ब्लड, लिपिड और लेपोप्रोटीन कंसंट्रेशन में अनियमिता देखने को मिलती हैं. अगर लो डेंसिटी लेपोप्रोटीन (एलडीएल) यानी खराब कोलेस्ट्रॉल, 130 एसजी/डीएल से हाई डेंसिटी (एचडीएल) लेपोप्रोटीन,जो अच्छे कोलेस्ट्रॉल है, 40 एमजी/डीएल से कम हो या टोटल कोलेस्ट्रॉल 200 एमजी/डीएल से अधिक हो तो सीएडी का खतरा बढ़ जाता है. एक्सरसाइज से एचडीएल बढ़ता है और एक लो फैट वाले पौष्टिक आहार के साथ यह एलडीएल को कम करता है. मोटापा कम करने से आपकी कई बीमारियों के जोखिम भी साथ में कम हो जाएंगे.

4. नियमित एक्सरसाइज की आदत डालें-
अधिक वजन या मोटापे से ग्रस्त होने का सीएचडी के अन्य जोखिम वाले कारकों के साथ सीधा संबंध है. जिन लोगों के पेट पर चर्बी अधिक होती है, उन्हें इसका खतरा अधिक होता है. व्यायाम अतिरिक्त कैलोरी को कम करने में मदद करता है. नियमित व्यायाम से पूरे शरीर की वसा कम होती है और शरीर की प्रतिरोधक क्षमता भी बढ़ती है. पेट पर कम वसा सीएचडी सहित डायस्लिपिडेमिया, टाईप 2 डीएम और उच्च रक्तचाप के जोखिम कारकों को कम करने में मदद करता है. पौष्टिक आहार और नीयमित व्यायाम दोनों साथ कर आप शरीर की अतिरिक्त वसा कम करने और एक स्वस्थ वजन बनाए रखने में सफल होंगे.
