My father iz 55 years old. He smokes and drinks a lot and is suffering from high cholesterol.
Treatment for high cholesterol is lipid lowering drugs. But it is prudent to rather treat the cause than the effect. Which means if he avoids alcohol eats low fat diet and exercises regularly he might not need to take medicines.

You can lead a normal life post bypass. You need to take more care of yourself. Lifestyle changes and diet are the most important measures. Be compliant with medications. Regular follow up with your doctor. And most important don't worry.

Your Mother's BP seems to fluctuate with change in mood. So the first thing to do is to make sure she develops healthy habits and some hobby which she enjoys. Maybe knitting, singing, potted plants or a pet animal. Her choice. This will help her relax mentally and support better BP levels. Control her diet strongly. Oily, spicy, chilies and difficult to digest food stuff like cholle, rajma, chana dal, mooli. These will affect BP. So reduce or even stop for few weeks. She will feel the benefit soon. Make sure she sleeps well. In comfortable bed and cool room. Proper sleep is essential for good health. Take her for walks, walking helps the mind relax. Have a good Dusshera. Best wishes.

Dear lybrate-user, it is not worth to waste time on the girl who does not value you, it is better that you do not have to waste your precious time and youthful energy on her. Use your time wisely, remember that your life is too precious to waste on a person who is dishonest towards you. You deserve a better person. In the material world the boy says to the girl, “I love you,” and the girl says to the boy, “I love you,” but that as soon As there is some disruption in their sense gratification, there is quarrel, Separation. Lust is based on selfishness and as soon as the girl or boy finds selfish pleasures not satisfied, then the person selfishly becomes affectionate towards another person. She does not deserve you. You should feel happy that you did not waste your time on her. Do not become victim of her selfishness. Although one may profess true love, inwardly one’s real desire is to enjoy his own senses. We love someone as long as he or she satisfies our senses, and when such sensual pleasure dwindles, the so-called love dwindles with it. Thus the love affair ends in separation. What we speak of as “love” in the material world is actually lust, or a desire to serve oneself. It has no permanent basis; today I love one girl, tomorrow another, according to my changing fancy. Indeed, although a boy and girl may change sexual partners as often as dogs and cats do, in our modern idiom we refer to their sexual intercourse as “lovemaking,” as through the gross friction of two hot bodies could generate love. We speak of love so easily, but really in this material world there is no love—it is all lust. The difference between love and lust is like the difference between gold and iron. Both gold and iron are metals, but otherwise they are not at all alike.

Hi, I am 35 years, 65 Kg, height 5’6”, male from India. I am having sharp pain in chest slightly leftwards for last 10 years. Sometimes this pain is also felt simultaneously in left shoulder or left arm or left head. Duration of this pain is 1- 5 seconds, mostly while resting but its frequency and intensity is not certain. Sometimes it occurs while warming up or cooling down. Also noticed, that it is related to cold weather. Sometimes left part of head is numb and has pulsating pain. I do exercise, vegetarian except eggs, almost no dairy product, and no processed food. No tea coffee, no alcohol. Been smoker till 2008, quit. Had stomach acidity issue till 2012 but no more at all. There is no problem at all exercising in fact I feel great and energized doing it. None of my maternal or paternal relative have BP or cardiac issue except my younger brother who underwent dental’s procedure due to Aortic Dissection in march 2013, but he have a genetic condition called Marfan’s Syndrome, no other family member have this. I always thought it is muscular or gastro related, so it never bothered me until November 2015. Last November on two successive nights I woke up feeling my chest pounding hard. Checked my BP and Heart rate everything normal on both occasions, but was not able to sleep well those nights every time fall asleep it woke me up I can feel my heartbeat and whole body is shaking in rhythm with it but my heart rate was absolutely normal. On third day all this panicked me I checked my BP it was raised so went to physician, BP 150/90 he told me its anxiety or due to some food, gave medicines for BP, anxiety and antacids. It helped me sleep, symptoms are as it is but milder now. Next day went to see cardiologist, I was too worried, he checked my BP 170/100, and did ECG, Tropnin T and ECHO all normal. Gave medicines for BP, anxiety and five days later did TMT, also normal. My BP came normal next day of visiting cardiologist and never rose again. I also assumed it to be anxiety and stopped all medications, in 30-40 days everything was normal except that sharp occasional pinching which I was having for years but now more frequent. Summers of 2016 was ok not much issue. In july 2016 suddenly foul smell (like from dead bodies) started coming from my lower centre chest. This smell is totally different from my body odor and it continued after that till date. This November I felt some itching in centre chest on at least five different occasions while doing sudden exertion from rest like climbing a floor or getting up from chair or bed and rushing to open door. On night of 28-nov-2016, I felt sudden tightening in my left upper chest for 1 or 2 seconds, during sexual exertion, it felt like something had grabbed it tried to find the muscular nature by examining different chest and shoulder muscles but didn’t find anything wrong. Checked BP it was normal. On 1-dec consulted cardiologist, was nervous, BP 170/90, I denied testing this time but he said in the wake of new event we have to do all tests again. LIPID, HBAC, ECG, ECHO, Tropnin T, Na & K, TMT all normal. But this time ECG machine interpretation was “acute MI (inferior)” and Tropnin T level was 13.65 against normal value of 14. Does this is anything to worry about? What is that bad smell? As symptoms are intensifying year after year, what may be the cause? What further investigation can be recommended, if any? Cold weather increases it, why? Why pinching and heaviness is felt on left chest mostly while resting?

It is serious, if the ECG and Trop I value that you have mentioned is what it is. It means you have probably had a heart attack. Please take it seriously and go and consult a cardiologist for an angiography without any delay.

Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Dear lybrate-user, It will be proper to take her to the same doctor who prescribed the first medicines. Maybe the medicine dose needs to be adjusted. Make sure she is taking the proper precautions to keep her BP under check with proper exercise, diet and rest. Regards.
