Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the FBG 119 mg, is in the pre-diabetes state. Whereas HbA1c% 8.95 shows presence of diabetes for quite some time and it is not in control. TGL value is slightly high, no need to worry about it. Plus you have mentioned eltroxin as the medication being taken, which means there is hypothyroidism also. As regards eating paratha and curds yes you can have both, but your over all diet has to be controlled. Total caloric intake has to be regulated based on your weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Since diabetes is there, you will have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items and foods made of maida. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and certain fruits. Avoid colas, fructose corn syrup containing products and alcohol. Daily 1 hour of exercise is a must. Since you have not mentioned anything about treatment for diabetes, it appears youa are not yet taking treatment for that. You will have to initiate the treatment for that too. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

What should a blood pressure patient do to keep healthy and how to improve stamina. How to keep heart safe and strong.
You are taking the right and safe medicine for BP, I hope it is stabalised , This medicine is protective for the heart also and sometimes low doses are given to people with normal BP but having stressful jobs. Take less salt and avoid foods like chutneys, pickles ,papads etc where salt is added as a preservative. Take more potassium present in fruits like oranges ,bananas etc. Go for simple walks as best exercise and meditation. Eat seasonal fresh fruits & vegetables and do take a spoon of honey along with lemon juice in a glass of warm water ,every morning on empty stomach.

hi ,,, according to your reports...you can cap.ecosprin gold -20 1hs. tab.atorvas -10 1od. cap. pan 40 1bbf. for 30 days . High cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, a cause of heart attacks, and reducing blood lipid levels lowers the cardiovascular risk.4 High levels of LDL lead to a build-up of cholesterol in the arteries, whereas HDL carries cholesterol to the liver for removal from the body.2 A build-up of cholesterol is part of the process that narrows arteries, called atherosclerosis, in which plaques form and cause restriction of blood flow.2 High cholesterol levels are a result of modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. Two major risk factors, diet and exercise, are highly modifiable, meaning that something can be done to change these risk factors and reduce the likelihood of having high cholesterol.2 Limiting intake of fat in the diet helps manage cholesterol levels. In particular, it is helpful to limit foods that contain:2 Food sources of cholesterol Meat, cheese and egg yolks are sources of cholesterol. Cholesterol (from animal foods, such as egg yolks, meat and cheese) Saturated fat (found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods) Trans fat (found in some fried and processed foods). Being overweight or obese can also lead to higher blood LDL levels, with regular exercise helpful in managing this risk factor.2 The primary causes of high cholesterol are genetic - very high LDL levels are found in the inherited condition familial hypercholesterolemia.5 Abnormal cholesterol levels may also be secondary to the following:5,6 Diabetes Liver or kidney disease Polycystic ovary syndrome Pregnancy and other conditions that increase levels of female hormones Underactive thyroid gland. Drugs that increase LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol (progestins, anabolic steroids and corticosteroids).

Dear lybrateuser, -Your pain in the left side could be due to the the same gynecomastia problem occurring on the left side -if pain is more then take a tablet of paracetamol after meals with water -observe it for a week or so if still no improvement then consult a doctor.

There is no such things of low bp. If he does not feel dizziness nothing to worry. But be careful during change of posture specially from sitting from lying be slow gentle and must have a support. In chronic diabetic there is damage of autonomic nerve which cause low bp also checked by a cardiologist by ecg / echo if there is old heart attack.

Dear Lybrateuser, -At your age chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety or sedentary habit in case there was no earlier problem -have a well balanced healthy diet, do not skip meals & have meals on time, avoid spicy, fried & junk foods, restrict tea/coffee to not more than 1-2 cups in a day, avoid alcohol ,tobacco if you consume - do regular aerobic exercises like walking, jogging, yoga & deep breathing exercises in the morning -if not much relief then do an x-ray chest & consult a physician.

You are right , there are certain bacteria present in our mouth ,that lead to inflammation of heart muscles resulting in heart attacks , root canal involves instrumentation , besides own bacteria in the mouth , there is a risk of getting it through instruments too. Be very sure of septic conditions ,before you opt for this procedure.
