Myocarditis is infection of muscle of heart. Good to know that you know the difference between angina and heart attack, both are due to blockages in the blood vessels supplying blood to the heart, but in angina there is no damage to muscle of heart.

Endoscopic biliary stenting is procedure to open a blocked bile duct. A stent is a small cylinder-shaped tube that widens your bile duct and keeps it open. A stent should keep bile duct open and stop bile building up and causing jaundice. You should be able to see the jaundice reducing within a day or two of having your stent put in. Unfortunately, stents can become blocked after a few months. If this happens it is often possible to unblock or replace the stent.

Work–related stress can kill

Job stress raises the risk of heart disease by disrupting the body’s internal systems.

The findings from a long–running study involving more than 10,000 British civil servants also suggest that stress–induced biological changes may play a more direct role than previously thought.

The researchers measured stress among the civil servants by asking questions about their job demands such as how much control they had at work, how often they took breaks, and how pressed for time they were during the day.

The team conducted seven surveys over a 12–year period and found chronically stressed workers – people determined to be under severe pressure in the first two of the surveys – had a 68 percent higher risk of developing heart disease. The link was strongest among people under 50.

Stressed workers also eat unhealthy food, smoke, drink and skip exercise – all behaviors linked to heart disease.

In the study, stressed workers also had lowered heart rate variability – a sign of a poorly–functioning weak heart and higher than normal levels of cortisol, a "stress" hormone that provides a burst of energy for a fight–or–flight response.

Too much cortisol circulating in the blood stream can damage blood vessels and the heart.

Hi. You do not have to take any precausions just because you have undergone open heart surgery for asd. Just once ask your surgeon doctor or your heart doctor about any particular precautions for you. Some of the heart parameters like pah etc, if they are normal, then you are allowed to do all things that you want to. Take care.

Being in Love Will Lead You to a Healthy Heart and Life

Ph. D - Alternative Medicine, PG Diploma in Psycological Counseling

Being in Love Will Lead You to a Healthy Heart and Life

Loving relationships are known to improve more than just your mood, it improve your looks and your health. Researchers believe that it might just be the best medicine for most people, as it helps keep your heart healthy, beat cancer and recover faster, boosts athletic performance and leads to spiritual and emotional growth.

Mentioned below are a few of the ways, in which love may lead to a healthy heart and life:

  1. Better Heart Health: Research has shown that women in healthy and loving marriages are less prone to contracting cardiovascular diseases, in contrary to those in stressful marriages. It has also been discovered that love reduces the likelihood of chest pains and suffering from angina despite having high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes in men.
  2. Lengthens Your Life: The National Longitudinal Mortality Study studied a million subjects and concluded that couples in a loving marriage tend to live longer and have lowered risk of getting heart attacks, pneumonia, cancer and cirrhosis of the liver. Their chances of committing suicide are also reduced by almost half.
  3. Faster Cancer Recovery: After extensive research, University of Iowa proved that patients of ovarian cancer, who were in loving relationships, had stronger WBCs i.e. White Blood Cells that kill cancerous cells, as compared to those in unhealthy relationships. They also concluded that patients in love recover quickly or completely eliminate cancer. 
  4. Lowers Blood Pressure: Studies show that when couples are together, their blood pressure is significantly lowered. This research even proved that spending time with loving and supportive friends results in lower systolic numbers. 
  5. Keeps You Slim: Being in love is a much healthier and better option than juice cleanse, when it comes to losing that extra weight. People in loving relationships produce more adrenaline i.e. an appetite suppressant and are more likely to hit the gym and make healthier lifestyle choices to look their best. Apart from that, sex is one of the best ways to lose calories and reduce your weight.

Please ask doctor's to change medication. Make changes in your lifestyle to monitor your BP in the most natural way. Remember, increased BP is an un-natural occurrence. Only when our lifestyle is disturbed and we do incorrect things, the BP goes out of control. Medicines keep BP in check, but do not bring it to normal. Ideally, regulate Diet, exercise, mind control, proper hydration, rest and timely sleep and food These will surely help. Have a healthy diwali.

There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. • Do steam inhalation once or twice daily Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily

At 15 , you are a sensitive growing up young girl and I will not wish you to get hardened and non responsive. Crying helps release bottled up emotions but do not watch senti serials as reality will teach you more. Read good books , study books of school and develop some creative hobbies.

Dear Doctor, I had written to you earlier regarding me taking Gluconorm SR for my high Blood/Sugar level. My last two recent readings are 123/177 and 128/203.My doctor had earlier recommended me taking Glucorm after breakfast. Do you think that I should increase the frequency of taking this medicine. I also want to know, when is the best time to Take Glucorm. Should it be after or before meals.

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
An increase in the dose of Gluconorm is probably required provided you have been taking care of your diet and exercise. A good way to see if your DM is under control is to do the HBA1C level. Gluconorm can be taken after food.

Blood pressure monitor konse ache hote hai electronic ya manual, agar electronic hai to isme finger wala ya hand wala.
Manual is better than electronic. But for home BP monitoring electronic is more practical. Make sure to standardise every 6monthly to yearly depending upon manufacturer specifications. Again arm BP monitoring is better than finger one. I hope to have cleared your doubts.
