Dear user. Anti depression medicines are working and therefore you are not feeling your depression symptoms. In the present case you should not stop the medicines abruptly. Instead, they should be tapered off over a period of one year. I suggest you to consult your psychiatrist for such a tapering down. Take care.

Palpitations can be related to underlying heart disease. When they are, palpitations are more likely to represent arrhythmia. Heart conditions associated with palpitations include:------------- • Prior heart attack--------- • Coronary artery disease-------------- • Other heart problems such as congestive heart failure, heart valve problems, or heart muscle problems---------- In you case and at your age you must start doing stress management exercises especially BRAMARI PRANAYAM daily for 10 minutes and avoid habit of over eating and control on your weight but again I will suggest you to consult your doctor in person as he can only come to a correct diagnosis after physical examination.------------- Being a Homoeopath I will advise you to take following medicine alongwith which will surely help you. DIACARD (MADAUUS GERMAN) Drink 10 drops twice daily along with your present treatment-------------------

Hello, take Angioton (Schwabe) ,15 drops with water twice daily. take lemon water with salt . Drink more water. Take a cup of the raw beetroot juice twice daily. It is one of the best home remedies for low blood pressure. Drinking a cup of strong black coffee can also help. 120/80 mmHg is the normal blood pressure of a healthy human being.

Dear lybrate-user, At age 62, it is not abnormal to have slight change in ECG. To know more about heart condition, do 2D Echo or Thallium miocardial perfusion scan. This will give information of heart functioning. Regards.

6 Ways To Manage Coronary Artery Disease!

6 Ways To Manage Coronary Artery Disease!

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 your 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

You can reverse this loss of stamina, if you leave alcohol soon. You should visualize how high you used to feel when you you were an athlete. Choose your highs and compare both the highs, choose the high of fitness, strength and vitality. Do it everyday, you are so young you can bring back your body to a good shape.

4 years olds have high metabolic rates and their heart beats faster than adults. If worried, get her checked by specialist who will put a stethoscope on her chest to hear murmurs if heart is not healthy and suggest you further care and treatment.
