Excessive sleepiness can have serious consequences. You could doze off while waiting at a red light, for example. And not getting good sleep has been associated with high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and weight gain. Routinely taking more than 30 minutes to fall asleep Regularly waking up many times and having trouble falling asleep again Frequent sleepiness during the day, frequent naps, or falling asleep unintentionally or at inappropriate times during the day Loud snoring, gasping, snorting, choking sounds or stopping breathing for short periods during sleep--problems that are usually reported by your spouse or partner Creeping, tingling or crawling feelings in your legs or arms, especially as you're falling asleep Legs or arms jerk often during sleep, often reported by your spouse or partner Waking up with headaches

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I am an orthopaedic surgeon, so it will be best for a good physical therapist to answer your question but you will have to visit personally to actually learn them initially, but main focus is on quadriceps and hamstring exercises, general rule is to avoid high impact exercises because they may worsen your symptoms and concentrate on daily brisk walks for 2-3 km in a day. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

For any person irrespective of cholesterol one should eat healthy. Avoid junk foods, avoid fried and fatty foods, avoid too much of sweets and sugars/salts. Fruits, vegetables, fish are good. But remember one should eat healthy not stop eating.

Heart disease in women

Contrary to popular understanding, the effects of CVD are often worse in women than in men:
Younger women who have a heart attack have higher mortality than men of the same age.
Women with diabetes have higher CVD mortality than men with diabetes.
Immediately following stroke, women are more likely to experience serious problems compared to men.
Yet women are more likely than men to be under-diagnosed and under-treated

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease.What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet , lifestyle changes , make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems

Avoid excess salt in diet take 8-10 glass water daily avoid fried and spicy food and coffee take a nutritious diet and a early morning walk start doing kapal bhati pranayam daily for 15 minutes. To start with do for 3-5 minutes nd slowly increase upto 15 minutes. The procedure for doing this asana is o sit in a comfortable crossed leg posture, sukasana (using padmasana or vajrasanais the best) and keep your back straight. Rest your hands on the knees using gyana mudra or chin mudra. O inhale deeply trough your nose, this will expand you abdomen. O exhale using a great force so that your abdominal muscles contract to the maximum o these exhalations are similar to your breath outs, but they should be forceful o make sure while exhaling, the air should be pushed out of your lungs by contracting the diaphragm o after exhalation again do inhalation, but this time with out any effort. To do this just relax your lungs, they will automatically expand and fill with air o one cycle of kapalabhati pranayama include one deep inhalation, then forceful exhalation and an effortless inhalation. O a learner can practice up to three rounds, each with 15 exhalations. Small breaks between each round are allowed.
