Your Cholesterol is high, you should start with lifestyle precautions like - 1) Daily exercise like brisk walking, jogging for 40 mins, begin gradually and increase to 40 mins a day. 2) Change your diet to a healthy heart diet high on fruits, veggies, low on sugar and fried fat etc (take a detailed diet consult) 3) Quit smoking and drinking. 4) get your BP checked and baseline echo done. After 4-6 weeks of these precautions repeat your lipid profile, if still abnormal consult a cardiologist for adding of cholesterol control medicine.

Hello, I understand that having a baby is very important for you and somewhere in your mind, probably your time clock is ticking away saying that you are getting older now and may not have a baby. And you are so keen to have a baby of your own? this thought alone might be a cause for more anxiety, sense of loss, sadness and anger with yourself. However, I would like to bring to your notice that overthinking about this or anything else will only bring emotional imbalance leading to more bp fluctuations. Our mind and body are connected and any mental and emotional imbalance causes an imbalance in the body. 1. Please exercise everyday within your capacity to burn off the excess calories and fat intake. Exercising will also help in uplifting your mood and improve your self image and give you a sense of control over your body. 2. Eat only healthy food limiting oil, sugars, processed and refined foods to the bare minimum. Raw and whole food diet having more of fruits, vegetables, whole grains is known to control and reduce rising bp. Add a source of good fats like walnuts, nuts and oil seeds to improve your heart functioning. Cut out meats and unhealthy cooking styles and choose steaming, stir frying over boiling and frying. 3. Yoga, meditation etc to control your anxiety and calm down the mind to help become emotionally stable and peaceful. This will also keep your bp stable. Bhramri and anulom vilom are especially 2 pranayamas very helpful in bringing emotional balance. 4. Counselling to help you learn tips and techniques to manage stressful events without losing your mental and emotional equilibrium. You will be able to cope with stress and learn to manage stress and tension with ease. 5. Only when you are healthy, will your baby be healthy. It will need a lot of attention and care when it arrives. What kind of life do you want to give your child? please consider the chances of you not feeling fit enough to take care of the baby keeping your health in mind. 6. Consider other options of having a child: would you rather consider adopting a baby over putting your body through this stress. Or would you like to volunteer your time in a childrens playhome or shelters where abandoned children are taken care of? there are number of ways that you can still meet your need to bring up a child and feel worthwhile and fulfilled. Please consider your options and their pros and cons before rushing in to any decision. Take care.

You need to focus on your overall health and change your lifestyle. Not only taking the prescribed medicines on time but also spending some time to exercise every day. You can also learn Yoga which can help you balance the mind and body, thereby help reduce the need for increasing dosage of medicines over time. Adapt a healthy lifestyle and try to implement the good habits in your daily routine. You can also add Homeopathy which helps the body to recover naturally. You contact me for further details.

Heart Blockage: Know Its Warning Signs!

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Durgapur
Heart Blockage: Know Its Warning Signs!

Heart Blocks are a result of plaque buildup in your arteries, which blocks blood flow and circulation to the heart, causing heart muscle damage and heightens the risk for heart attack and stroke.
Arteries which have smooth and elastic walls become thick and restrict blood flow from the cholesterol deposits over the years. Blood clots can also block the arteries that supply oxygen rich blood to the heart. These can eventually lead to strokes and heart attacks.

Some warning signs that you may be at risk of heart blockage:

  1. Have you had a mild stroke: Plaque that accumulates in the carotid artery supplying oxygen rich blood to the brain can cause a stroke. People who have had strokes are more prone to heart attacks.
  2. Do you often feel fatigue and dizziness: Reduced oxygen from poor circulation and blood flow can result in fatigue and tiredness as well as dizziness.
  3. Experiencing shortness of breath: Poor blood flow can lead to shortness of breath from even mild forms of exercise or even from carrying out daily chores or walking.
  4. Sudden chest pain: Chest pain or angina result from reduced supply of blood to the heart. It can be felt as pressure, tightness in the chest, squeezing in the chest, numbness or burning.
  5. Unexplained lower back pain: This can result from pressure in the spine as a result of pinched nerves due to compressed vertebrae discs as a result of poor blood flow.
  6. Erectile dysfunction in men: If an erection becomes difficult or impossible, it could be a warning sign of clogged arteries. These arteries supply blood to the pelvis area and help achieve an erection.
  7. Calf pain: Blocked leg arteries can cause calf pain, especially in smokers . THis is an early sign of possible heart blocks.
  8. Painful, numb and cold hands and feet: Plaque build up in the arteries of the extremities can cause numbness and coldness in the hands and feet.

Remember early detection is the key to prevent or delay heart attacks.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Exercises in Standing for Stroke Patients

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Exercises in Standing for Stroke Patients

EXERCISES IN STANDING

In standing the patient is trained to achieve static balance by giving perturbation or by making the person stand on a wobble board or tilt board. Balance should also be trained in step stance. The patient is trained to shift weight alternately on both the lower limbs. Standing should be encouraged by keeping the affected leg slightly behind the normal leg to facilitate more weight-bearing on that side.

Dynamic balance can be trained in standing by teaching various reaching  out activities and also by teaching the patient rotation of the trunk and forward bending exercises. These exercises also help in development of automatic adaptation of the muscles which is important for performance of many activities. 

The patient balance should be trained for anticipatory response.The following exercises may be given in standing:The therapist stands behind the patient and hold the pelvis such that the affected pelvis is kept in protraction. The patient is then encouraged to place the affected leg forward and then take it back. This is repeated for 10 times. Similarly the patient is encouraged to place the affected leg to the sides (abduction) and then come to the neutral position for ten times. These activities help the patient during swing phase of the gait cycle.

In the same position, the therapist trains the patient to take weight on the affected leg and place the normal leg forward and then back. This is repeated ten times. Similarly abduction movement can also be trained for 10 times. This activity encourages proper weight bearing of the affected limb.

Symmetrical throwing activities should be encouraged to increase the balance reaction and also to increase the stability limit which will help the patient in proper postural control.

Unilateral stance on the affected leg should be given to the patient which will facilitate isometric work of the abductors to prevent Trendeleburg’s sign.Once the patient is comfortably doing the above exercises then he may be trained to walk in between the parallel bars in a near normal gait pattern. Side walking and backward walking should also be given.Then progressed to walking unaided on the level ground.Treadmill training or using a static cycle to train the gait in hemi plegic patient, especially in the early stages, has been found to improve the gait pattern to a remarkable extent. 

Treadmill walking with partial weight supporting harness has been useful in rehabilitating gait in hemiplegics. 

The patient should be trained to walk in the environment which he will come across in his day to day life like walking on uneven surface, staircase climbing, walking in the market place, etc.Once the patient develops various components of movement available to perform his activities of daily living the basic functional activities should be directly practiced to gain independency and accuracy. 

Repeating each functional task again and again over a period of time helps in faster learning of those task by formation of the engrams in the brain.
