High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap.

5 foods that fight high cholesterol

Oats give you soluble fiber. Add a banana or some strawberries to get more soluble fibers.
Beans are especially rich in soluble fiber. They also take a while for the body to digest, meaning you feel full for longer after a meal.
Nuts: Eating almonds, walnuts, peanuts and other nuts is good for the heart. Eating 2 ounces of nuts a day can slightly lower LDL by about 5%. Nuts have additional nutrients that protect the heart in other ways.
Foods fortified with sterols and stanols. Companies are adding them to foods ranging from margarine and granola bars to orange juice and chocolate. They?re also available as supplements. Getting 2 grams of plant sterols or stanols a day can lower LDL cholesterol by about 10%.
Fatty fish. Eating fish 2 to 3 times a week can lower LDL in two ways: by replacing meat, which has LDL?boosting saturated fats and by delivering LDL?lowering omega?3 fats.

About Stroke

BDS, Master of Hospital Administration
Dentist, Patna
About Stroke

Stroke has a new indicator! read and pass on.
 
Stroke has a new indicator 
Stroke - they now have a fourth indicator, the tongue

Stroke: remember the 1st three letters.
S. T. R. 
Stroke identification:

During a bbq, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics. She said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6: 00 pm jane passed away.) she had suffered a stroke at the bbq. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke. Totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 

Recognizing a stroke

Thank god for the sense to remember the'3' steps, str. Read and learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three (3) simple questions:
S *ask the individual to smile.
T *ask the person to talk and speak a simple sentence (coherently)
(i. E. Chicken soup)
R *ask him or her to raise both arms.

If he or she has trouble with any one of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New sign of a stroke -------- stick out your tongue!

Note: another'sign' of a stroke is this: ask the person to'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is
'crooked, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you also?

Lybrate-user, some times suddenly different symptoms can be seen, particularly with gastrointestinal tract. Indigestion, nauseating feeling can be seen more often in a few patients of diabetes a condition called gastroparesis may develop which delays stomach emptying and hence appetite may be affected. It is very difficult to conclude what exactly might be the reason. My suggestion is to take a lighter food for next few days or eat small quantity of food per meal and take more frequent meal. Also continue walking for about 45 minutes to 1 hour daily. That will aid digestion. Maintain bp and blood glucose levels with in prescribed limit. Avoid fatty and highly processed foods as well as sweets. Consume more of green leafy vegetables. Maintain your glucose levels with in prescribed limit. Thanks.

Hello, if all ecg, echo and angio are normal nothing extra needs to be done. Continue anti diabetes and anti htn medications. Cardiologist may have given ecospirin and statin to continue. Life style modifications like low oil foods. Use olive oil or canola oil, or safflower oil which have unsaturated fats. Exercise daily 30 min per day. Not to eat pickles and salted foods, decrease non veg, fish can be taken weekly once, decrease amount of salt in diet. Optimisation of ant diabetes and anti htn medications are required.

Hello lybrate-user, first of all, you take 10-12 deep breaths early in morning on waking. Then try to do yoga for 10 mins. This will help to make you mind healthy and you will not forget things too. And also your blood pressure will start getting normalizing. As your age is quiet low, I would not suggest you to go for any medicinal treatment for high blood pressure. It can happen situational.

Mr. Lybrate-user, for controlling diabetes effectively you need specific drugs belonging to modern medicine either oral anti - diabetics or insulin injections. The one mentioned by you, is not at all effective. That particular tablet has been only tried on rats in the lab, there too its effectiveness has been about 67%, which as good as a placebo. No human trials are done, there is no safety data on human beings. I will not recommend this tablet to any diabetes patient. When good control is achieves fasting should be closer to 100mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<6.8. So you need to shift to appropriate treatment right away. Otherwise you are inviting long term serious complications of diabetes related to every single vital organ in the body. Choice is yours.

Looks like it is ge reflux. He needs to control his lifestyle. Do exercises, take meals at regular intervals, stop eating fried, pungent, spicy, sweet and rice. Drink 3 litres of water and sleep before 10 pm. Try triphala choorn 2 spoon twice or thrice a day. And lastly see a good doctor.
