How can i manage my cholesterol?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How can i manage my cholesterol?
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 .

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your chest pain is due to acidity - follow some dietary precautions, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, restrict tea, coffee intake to not more than 1-2 cups a day, do not skip meals, have meals on time, chew your food well, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, do not lye down after meals for at least an hour, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bed time avoid aerated. Drinks citrus fruits, chocolate, mint - have 8- 10 glasses of water per day - have syrup gelusil, 2 teaspoonful half hour after every meal three times a day - get your ECG done to rule out any other problem.

Rheumatic heart disease is most common cause of mitral valve replacement. Rhd involves more than one valve too. Also there is chances of involvement of replaced valve again. So it is mandatory to be under followup of treating cardiologist or any nearby physician for time to time cardiac evaluation clinically and with echocardiography.

It is good that you have quit smoking. The chest pain can be due to hyperacidity or stress related. Breathing problem can be due to bronchitis. All these things will improve after quitting smoking. You can be back to normal health soon if the damage is mild.

Its not at all okay, get one echocardiography done to see the internal apparatus, if the echo report is normal then it is either idiopathic or congenital, in that case also you have to be careful about d c m (dilated cardiomyopathy)

I am suffering from dry cough for the last 3 weeks and I have chest pain whenever I cough hard. Can you suggest what should be done?

Just dru cough alone for 3 weeks can be due to 1. After a common cold or viral fever; the fever may go unnoticed but leaves behind a dry cough which will resolve over a few more weeks or turn to wheezy cough. 2. A dry cough may be a sign of allergic asthma without wheezing . This occurs during season change or on exposure to allergens like dust; cold air etc. 3. Do not smoke. It prevents a common cold getting resolved fast. 4. There are no serious illnesses which present as dry cough for 3 weeks. So there is no reason to be over apprehensive. 5. Chest pain is because we mainly cough with our chest muscles. So they get sprained by hard cough. As there is no sputum ; try some cough suppresant syrups if needed. 6. Hot fomentation or hot water bath 3 times will relax the chest muscles. 7. Paracetamol is also OK .

you can take..tab.vit.D..OD. AND CAP.ZEVIT FOR MORNING TIREDNESS . Symptoms and Health Risks of Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency. However, for many people, the symptoms are subtle. Yet, even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks. Low blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with the following: Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease Cognitive impairment in older adults Severe asthma in children Cancer Research suggests that vitamin D could play a role in the prevention and treatment of a number of different conditions, including type1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and multiple sclerosis. Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency Vitamin D deficiency can occur for a number of reasons: You don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. This is likely if you follow a strict vegan diet, because most of the natural sources are animal-based, including fish and fish oils, egg yolks, cheese, fortified milk, and beef liver. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. Because the body makes vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight, you may be at risk of deficiency if you are homebound, live in northern latitudes, wear long robes or head coverings for religious reasons, or have an occupation that prevents sun exposure. You have dark skin. The pigment melanin reduces the skin's ability to make vitamin D in response to sunlight exposure. Some studies show that older adults with darker skin are at high risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Pls suggest any antioxidant tab which can help lower down cholesterol and any tablet which can do weight loss.
How are you. Friend, there is no good solution in medicines or tablets to lower weight and to lower your cholesterol. Better concentrate on exercises, diet habits etc. Medicines to lower cholesterol are called as statins. Antioxidant medicines come under nutritional products and they are not as effective as other activities that I suggested.
