My open heart surgeries is done but my weight is over and sex is very down my age is 42.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
My open heart surgeries is done but my weight is over and sex is very down my age is 42.
Good to know that after heart surgery, you are not taking any medicine, but you are overweight. There is a chance of disease becoming worse, besides other things bothering you, you should be more careful about weight. Nobody told you after heart disease about weight? try it in simple way. Reduce sugars and sweets, fats, salt to bare minimum. Take more of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of the supplements for proteins, reduce carbs, do take good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday to get protein and good fats. Eat a full meal of daal roti chawal once a day. Drink lemon juice and honey added to it on empty stomach every morning. Besides reducing weight it helps burn bad fats also exercise moderately. Simple walks as exercise, and meditation. Get back here after a month with some details about your heart disease and weight loss that should not be more than @ 5 kg per month.

I am 40 years male I have problem to listen last 5 years the doctor says it is otosclerosis and it is not curable. Is it true ?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
If it is otosclerosis then there r only 2 procedures for treatment 1. Hearing aids 2. Stapedectomy surgery but with the above procedures also success rate is very low. I will advise you to start homoeo treatment with much better results and report me after 4-6 months of taking the medicine violo odorata q (dr. Reckeweg or sbl) 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times a day calcarea fluor 6x (dr. Reckeweg) chew 4 tabs every 4 hrly means 4 times a day.

Dear lybrate user, you are stressed out and you know that you are stressed out. The problem is that stress becomes more and more difficult to manage when we start accepting that particular situations and activities will bring back the stress in us. In your case it is talking with another person. So you know that when you talk to somebody you will have shivering and high heart rate and since you have already observed this thing about yourself-this has become a recurring phenomenon in your life. First of all dissociate yourself with this fact by again in again repeating this activity and situation. Don't avoid talking with people. In fact make it a habit to talk to as many people as possible. You will have initial difficulty but as and when you continue giving yourself the same situation the difficulty in managing that situation will keep on fading and one day it will completely vanish. This is the best way that you can manage and conquer your fears. Regards

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.

Dear lybrate-user Thanks for sharing your concern. Generally BP medicines are given for long time or lifelong. It's not necessary. But to be on safe side doctors advice to continue the medication. Yes you can stop your BP medicine, but with few thing to keep in mind. Follow the thumb rule to maintain your BP with lifestyle medicine. 1) Monitor your BP regularly say every week. 2) Eat low Sodium salt (avoid pickles, salty wafers, canned food) 3) Eat Potassium rich food (Ripe Banana, Black Grapes, Red bell pepper, Radish,onion, etc) on regular basis. 3) Drink at least 3 to 4 ltrs of slight cold water. 4) Do regular Cardio vascular exercises (walking and cycling. Avoid jogging, skipping rope) 30 mins daily 5. Do deep breathing exercises for 5 mins after your cardio exercise.

Mr. C lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 30.06 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). That itself is a major contributor for increased blood glucose and and hypertension. At your age HbA1c% should be ideally <6.8. Diabetes is a life long remaining condition, there is no cure. It can only be controlled by appropriate medication, diet control and regular exercise and weight reduction. Thanks.

Telma 20 is not usually related to ed. But if you feel sure that telma 20 causes ed, then you can shift to another drug for your hypertension. Please consult for prescription.
