This pain can be due to acidity, but since you have such high levels of LDL it can also be due to some heart blockage and it will be difficult to rule out what is the cause without understanding your symptoms and evaluating you in person. So it will be better that you consult a local cardiologist with an ecg and you may require further testing with ECHO and TMT and also treatment for cholesterol.

You could be having some sort of viral neuralgia like herpes zoster see if you have and any skin lesions like some eruptive vesicles sometimes patients get them later but usually they do not cross the mid line of back or on other side.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Medicine will depend upon fbs and ppbs. Your ppbs is high, so I will recommend to make changes in your meals and to go for a walk post meal. And if still your ppbs remains high than you should consult the doctor.

Dear lybrateuser, -Before starting medication, try lifestyle changes for 2-3 months to lower your BP, - have a salt restricted diet, avoid fried, processed & junk foods, also pickles, papads & namkeens - have more of fibre containing foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains instead of refined ones, low fat milk & dairy & healthy fats as in fish, olive & canola oil for cooking, nuts, avocados & seeds such as flax & chia - do regular exercise like walking, jogging, also do yoga & meditation to relax your mind & body so that the BP comes down - sleep for at least 7-8 hrs at night, keep your sleep & wake up time fixed.

5 Things You Must Know When Living With A Heart Patient!

5 Things You Must Know When Living With A Heart Patient!

When there is a person with the chronic condition, it is not just that person who is affected, but the near and dear ones as well. When heading out for a dinner or when planning a gathering, there would be certain things that need to be accounted for and considered to accommodate the needs of the affected person. These very soon become a way of life and can be done effortlessly.

The following are some things to bear in mind when living with a heart patient.

  1. Diet: Heart patients would have some dietary preferences based on the heart condition per se. This may include a need for more whole grains and vegetables, need for specific types of oils, specific cooking methods, etc. At home, it is essential to ensure these things are always stocked up. When heading out, whether it is to visit someone or out for a meal, take into account whether these would be available. The next best option should be kept in mind so that dietary intake is not affected. Gradually, with time, substitutes can be identified with which they could manage in most places.
  2. Medications: Make sure the medication kit is always readily available. Make sure the person does not miss any medications, whether at home or outside. Ensure the regular medicines are in stock and some common emergency ones are also readily available.
  3. Routine: Whether it is their morning walk or yoga or meditation, it is better to stick to the routine as much as possible. The person also should learn to adapt based on circumstances; however, to the maximum extent possible, these should be continued without major interruption.
  4. Monitoring: Be it blood pressure, sugar levels or weight, these need to be monitored regularly and any deviations should be brought to the notice of the doctor immediately.
  5. Other equipment: Whether it is a walker, inhaler, or a wheelchair, these should be functional and available. The home or the living place should not be cluttered to allow for the easy use of this equipment.

While these may initially require some effort, with time, it would just happen naturally. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
