lybrate-user, She seems to have multiple problems. High BP and diabetes tend to affect kidney function. There is no mention of weight, height, PP glucose level, drugs being taken for diabetes and TSH level as well as dose of thyroxine. Longstanding high BP and diabetes tend to affect kidney function. To reduce creatinine protein intake needs to be reduced. Plus BP should be in good control. Thanks.

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.

Ventricular fibrillation is the most common cause of cardiac arrest. Ventricular fibrillation occurs when the normal, regular, electrical activation of heart muscle contraction is replaced by chaotic electrical activity that causes the heart to stop beating and pumping blood to the brain and other parts of the body. Your AV block will not cause any serious effect like these

Chest pain sometimes occur due to acidity and gastritis. If you are feeling any heart burn or burning sensation in your epigastric region start using avipattikar churna. If possible tell me all your problems in detail so I can help you online.

Hi I am 64, retired person, have undergone cabg 13 years ago. In dec 14, I experienced angina again. Ecg, tmt and ct angiogram confirmed that there are new blocks in the grafts. I have been advised to take vasodilators with other routine medicines. Another surgery or angioplasty were ruled out. My query is how long should I survive on vasodilators. Wouldn't I become resistant to this drug after some time. Is second surgery possible in my case. Is there no other option at all. For your kind information I walk 40 minutes daily without any significant pain though I feel some discomfort initially for a few minutes. I carry sorbitrate tablets always with me. Will this tablet help in an emergency. I would be grateful for your kind advice. With best regards.

Dear exact advise would not be possible without seeing your angiography cd, but whatever you have mentioned means you have now diffuse blockages in your grafts. Since a repeat angioplasty or bypass surgery is ruled out, there is a non-invasive modality called eecp, which can help you. This is a modality which helps in recruiting collateral arteries, in the patient, which are natural bypass arteries. You can contact us for the same.

Dear lybrate user, -The kidney stones will be removed from the roots by laser but if she doesn't take precautions after that they can again form -she should have plenty of fluids including8-10 glasses of water per day to flush out the toxins & to keep the kidneys healthy, also avoid spicy, fried food & intake of calcium substitutes for a long period if she consumes them -get regular checkups & investigations done to avoid recurrence.

Hello dear 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,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Your. B. P is still. Salt to be reduced to less than 2 grams /day. Total control of your mind to stop salt. Meditation helps. You have to increase your dose of talsar, and then also combine hydrochlorthiazid.

Dear Lybrateruser, - Your chest pain could be due to acidity - avoid spicy, fried & junk food, also restrict intake of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day, avoid alcohol & smoking - chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, have 4-5 small meals rather than having three large meals - have 8-10 glasses of water for proper digestion - for your nasal blockage do steam inhalation regularly 2-3 times a day - take tab levocetirizine, 10 mg, 1 tab daily in the evening - avoid cold fluids, have more of warm fluids like water, tea, coffer, milk, soup - avoid exposure to cold & dust- get x-ray paranasal sinuses & chest done to rule out any other problem like sinusitis, DNS & allergic rhinitis.

Breathing problem along with heart disease can be confusing for the doctor and for patient, it can be COPD/asthma+ heart attack because both cause breathlessness. She has had a cardiac arrest 1 year ago , I am sure she must have been advised to prevent further attacks. Get Spirometry test for lungs.Echo test for % functioning of heart and lipid profile blood test , get back with reports.
