My thyroid was high and now its in range but my cholesterol is 236 where as range is 200. Please suggest me how to reduce it?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
continue your thyroid medicines. High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hypertension : A Review

BHMS
Homeopath, Bahadurgarh
Hypertension : A Review

The major dangers of hypertension contributes to apoplexy, paralysis, loss of vision, heart attacks, gangrene, respiratory disorders etc.

Modern medicine is no doubt very beneficial in administration the blood pressure, but we all are well aware of a hidden danger which we all are concerned as the root cause of hypertension cannot be cured just by maintaining blood pressure, because once the body get used to the current dosage, it start to demand more amount or quantity of medicine and there start the trouble. Blood pressure get explode due to either non functioning of medicine or from reverse effects of body mechanism. And these are the situations leading to strokes and other complications in the body.

Apart from the well aware figures we have some other issues which I would like to discuss here:

A) self medication: people continue consume there b. P. Medicines no matter they are working or not just to avoid going to there doctors, people even increase or decrease the dosage without any professional opinion.


B.) sedentary lifestyle: people do eat junk food in huge quantities and avoid any kind of physical works. Even for covering 200 meter distance people prefer to use a two wheeler or even cars


C) alcohol: if contains majority of carbohydrates and hence indirectly contributes in increasing the amount of cholesterol (which is dangerous cause of heart attacks and many diseases - see my previous articles)


D) stress: it may play a very major role, people with high stress tends to have increased level of triglycerides (type of cholesterol) in there body

Dear lybrate user, I think you have low self esteem and low self confidence. Probably no one appreciated your strengths since your childhood. Please understand that we all have good and bad traits. Try to focus on your good points. Understand that every person in this world is valuable, so are you. Please get in touch with your school or college counsellor at the earliest. If you do not have one at school/college, then take an appointment with a private counsellor. You can get rid of your anxiety and fear with some behaviour therapy. Take care.

I have query regarding. Does medicines remove blockage in heart arteries which cause heart failure in future.

DM - Cardiology, MD-Internal Medicine , MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Hi lybrate-user, medicines can cause stabilization and even slight regression of blockages but can not totally remove it. If the blockage is so severe that it can cause heart failure in future, then it should be treated with angioplasty or bypass surgery before it causes damage to the heart.

Have the person sit down, rest, and try to keep calm. Loosen any tight clothing. Ask if the person takes any chest pain medication, such as nitroglycerin, for a known heart condition, and help them take it. If the pain does not go away promptly with rest or within 3 minutes of taking nitroglycerin, call for emergency medical help. If the person is unconscious and unresponsive, call 911 (or your local emergency number), then begin cpr.

Bp fluctuates due to dental pain as well. Sometimes dental pain cause fever also you need to consult dentist asap for the solution of those teeth which you mentioned. For gastritis tell her to take pantoacid -dsr for 1 week empty stomach. Give multivitamin syrup 2 teaspoon morning -night for 2 weeks. She shld consult a physician as well for proper investigations.

Respected Doctors, I am seeking for a great support from all of you. My husband age about 31 yrs, Height 5.6 inches, Weight 86 kgs, he consumes alcohol every day around 360 ml and meet (Chicken, beef and other oily junk foods like bhaji, Gobi Manchurians etc.) as well. Tried advising him by me and family members and taken him to de-addiction center still he is very determined not to stop. And tried giving him de-addiction powder of 3 tins without knowing still no development in his habits. Some more health issues he is facing details given below: # He is having BP – 140/105 pulse & cholesterol around 400, no sugar. # His legs are getting swollen by evening (His working style is sitting on chair at one place around 8 hrs), Lots of leg, neck, back pain is too much every day massage is required to legs at least to sleep. # His tummy also very big like a pot. Face and other body parts are also looks bulky even though he wont do any exercise and sit’s at one place after reaching home immediately starts drinking and sitting in one place he wont move little as well. There will no movement at all to the body. # he will not like to go to hospitals as well if we try to ask him, then we are unable to face his scoldings and not able to take as well to hospital. My request is to advise any medicine which will stop carving to consume alcohol, since he is very determined not to stop so that I can mix in his food consumption or any other source. Due to his addiction family happiness is drained out and relations between family members are also slowly vanishing. Request you to kindly advice the best solution I will be very thankful to you.

You have all my sympathies and I am very concerned that your husband has not reached what we call, ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’ as yet. To me his Rock Bottom seems to be death i.e. only death can stop his addiction! Anyway do not despair as yet and you may attempt the following and see how it works: I know you have tried a de-addiction center but he should not have been released if he was not ready. So in this attempt, he may be taken to another de-addiction center that are stricter and will also have follow up treatment and AA meetings for him to compulsorily attend. There is a medicine called disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that when you admit him into a de-addiction center that you let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. The consumption of antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end you will succeed. His medical condition warrants a very strict course of action. In case he is not cooperative, then there are some centers that will come and pick him up when he is totally drunk and take him by force. They will however need to get written permission from you and the family.

Hello Doctor, I'm 21 years old. I have cold from yesterday. I took cetrizine so now I feel good. But back pain and chest pain and foot pain. And I feel all body pain. So what is the treatment.

A good way to diffuse general body pains that are more chronic and recurring in nature is to take a long hot bath in water in which a few cups of Epsom salts have been added. If you suspect your body and pains are due to stress, do your best to get plenty of sleep and try to reduce or eliminate the cause of your stress. Meditation, deep breathing, yoga and simple daydreaming are excellent methods to unwind and sleep better. Aches and pains can also be felt throughout the body as a result of depression. Depression is the feeling of overwhelming sadness or loss of interest in things around you that were once important.

Dear lybrate-user, Thnks for the query. Please understand that your sugar reports are more significant than BP. If you are worried about the single blood sugar report, please go for HbA1C, which will give you an average of last 3 months. If it is more than 6, difinitely you have to take medicines for Diabetes. Your weight is more, and you come in the Obese category. If you can reduce your weight by 15-20 kg, may be the load on your pancreas will reduce and the Diabetes will come down. It is a slightly complicated issue. It is my sincere advice to please contact me at least once to talk in detail. Or you may also consult a dietician for the same Regards.

Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case. A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Many times I wake up at night and my heart is throbbing. It normalizes post some time. Is this something I should be worried about.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Throbbing or palpitations is a common complaint in young adults. The situation that you are relating to however is a special circumstance because you are having these symptoms while you are sleeping and your sleep gets disrupted due to this problem. Hence there can be some serious issue behind this symptom or it may be completely temporary benign thing. So firstly try and change some lifestyle habits- don't take any stimulating beverage like tea or coffee beyond 6 pm each evening, cut down on butter and cheese in dinner and most importantly leave your worries at rest when you rest. Pls do not take them to bed. If you want to race your mind then do it before you lie on bed. Hope my advice helps you. Regards.
