IF YOU BP IS VERY HIGH LIKE MORE THAN 160/100 WITH ANTI HYPERTENSIVE MEDICINES, IT IS ADVISABLE TO CONTROL YOUR BP FIRST THROUGH LIFESTYLE CHANGES. TILL THEN AVOID STRENUOUS EXERCISES. ITS OK TO YOGA AND LOW INTENSITY CARDIO, BUT NOT HEAVY WEIGHTS. IN HOMEOPATHY WE MANAGE BP WITH MEDICINES WHICH ARE FREE OF SIDE EFFECTS AND TARGETED TO TREAT THE ROOT CAUSE. IN EXTREME CASES, BAD EFFECTS OF HIGH BP MAY INCLUDE CARDIAC ARREST OR STROKE. ALL THE BEST

1. I am taking amloz at for blood pressure. Can I take any other medicine (cheaper) inlieu of this medicine. Please advice. 2. I am a case of obesity (approx 125 kgs) can you suggest some weight loss medicines.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Tonicard (homeo) for weight loss; 1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result you will feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Consult me in private for detailed treatment.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if triglyceride level comes to normal you can stop fenofibrate. Statin may be continued. Looking at height and weight it is clear that you are over weight with a bmi of 29.43 kgs/m2, very close to being classified as grade 1 obesity. This has to be reduced considerably. (normal bmi <23 kgs/m2). Your ideal body weight has to be around 47 kgs. Weight reduction will help in bringing down triglycerides to normal. You have not mentioned about current sugar levels and hba1c%. Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7, to say good blood sugar control is there. Thanks.

The side effects are usually given on the strip or bottle of medicines you purchase. Commonly Palpitations, Abdominal pain, Chest pain, Dizziness, Drowsiness, Fainting, Fatigue, Flushing, Headache, Lightheadedness, Limb swelling, Stomach upset are the registered detrimental side effects. These can appear immediately or after few years, depending on the tolerance levels of the patient consuming them. The best way to avoid these is to change lifestyle to bring a health condition where the need of such medicines can be totally avoided. Although at 50 age, it may take more effort and time, it is still possible to reduce dependency on any medicines or to fine natural, ayurvedic options that work well for you.

High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Can the Damage Caused by a Heart Attack be Reversed?

MBBS, MS (Gen. Surgery), M.Ch - Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, DNB (CTS)
Cardiologist, Noida
Can the Damage Caused by a Heart Attack be Reversed?

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked, often by a buildup of fat, cholesterol, and other substances, forming a plaque in the arteries. If blood flow is not restored quickly, the section of heart muscle begins to die, starving for oxygen. This causes a heart attack. A heart attack can also be caused by the rupture of the coronary artery. During a coronary rupture, the coronary arteries get restricted, reducing blood supply to the heart muscle.

Each coronary artery supplies blood to a region of the heart muscle.

Extent of damage to the heart muscle depends on the area supplied by the blocked artery and time between injury and treatment. Making some changes in your diet; how consistently you exercise; how much you weigh and how you manage stress can help you to recover from a heart disease quickly.

You can undo some, but probably not all of the damage, if you're willing to make big and lasting changes to your lifestyle. To reverse the impairments caused by a heart attack/disease you can become a vegetarian. Filling your platter with fruits and vegetables, whole grains, soy products, non-fat dairy and egg whites while avoiding fat, refined sugar and processed carbs is a sure-shot way of keeping your heart healthy and preventing future attacks.
