Tropnin test is positive only when there's damage to heart muscle. You should get treated for acidity by eating right food with less spices and fats. Get checked for heart by getting a ecg and halter tests plus blood pressure and blood tests done for sugar and lipids and get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum. It will be worth doing deworming now if not done during last 6 months. Take 3 tabs of nemocid together and 200 mg metrogyl twice a day after food for 3 days. Eat light and do moderate exercises.

Dear sir, your prescription is missing essential medicines for your kind of patients. You are taking 3 medicines, still your bp is not controlled. You also need diet modification and regular morning walk. Timing of medicines is also important. You consult a cardiologist. All the best.

How to control blood pressure?

Cardiologist,
How to control blood pressure?
Lifestyle modification - normalize weight, stop smoking, physical exercise, salt restricted diet, mental relaxation etc, if these measures fail then next step would be to start medicines. Also one needs to rule out secondary hypertension.

Your medicine regime is good. You are to do freehand exercise regularly & mild pain killer like paracetamol is quite well enough. Get following blood test to get your proper diagnosis of pain. 1 blood for tc, dc, esr hb%. Aso titre, rheumatoid factors, anti ds dna serum calcium & vit d ; x-ray bony jts & fingers.

How to reduce cholesterol without medication. Total cholesterol 233 mg/dl Ldl 162 Non Hdl 186.4 age 51 female.

How to reduce cholesterol without medication. Total cholesterol 233 mg/dl Ldl 162 Non Hdl 186.4 age 51 female.
Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Good to know that reports for heart are normal. May be you have stomach problems like acidity due to wrong eating. Take regularly some warm liquids whih are nourishing and less of fatty and oily foods which cause bulk to stomach. You can have clear soups, green tea, diluted toned milk, warm water with honey and lemon juice. Any of thses every 2 hours to wash acid in stomach. Seasonal vegetables & fruits as per constitution. Less of oils and spices but no bland food either. Black pepper and cinnamon is good for heart. Take minumum salt and sugar despite bp and blood sugar being normal.

I lost my father 10 years ago and since then my mother has been working. Her office timings are from 10 am-6 pm. Firstly she complained about excessive bleeding and like something is shivering within the ankles. She also felt as if something hair-like substance is always present below her tongue in her mouth. Sought several medication (both allopathic and homeopathic) but none of them helped. Since her childhood, allopathic medicines always posed problems for her as it never suited her (feels like burning within). In 2013, she underwent a surgery and got her uterus removed. But after her operation when she was given allopathic medicines in abundance, problem of acidity began. Doctors said she is suffering from depression. Right now she is taking homeopathic medicine. She also sees a lot of dreams in her sleep at night and a results she wakes up 2 to 3 times during the night. And the moment she wakes up. Her heartbeat increases tremendously. And feels as if whole body is burning.help me on this

Hi lybrate-user, whatever history you have mentioned about your mother it's really in psychological issue. Its not mean she is psyche but she got deep hurt. Now whether this depression is because of sudden shock after closenone s death or anxiety, stress tension. That we have to rule out. Again what she think that matter a lot to treat her. What kind of dreams she has. All her history. She need counselling too. Whatever medicine she is consuming and medical history also required. Still that olive bach flowers medicine 5 drops in 1/2 glass of water you can start for her. After consultation we can give her counselling n proper homoeopathic medicine. Thank you surely she will get well soon.
