Diabetesand triglycerideslevel control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. Few tips. - one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Natural remedies for diabetics. Tender guava leaf juice aloe vera green tea cinnamon black jamun seed extract methi seed powder drumstick leaf powder flaxseed powder amla neem flower tea multi grains wheat germ and bran lemon grass wheat grass quinoa are some of the foods which definitely control diabetes and triglycerides level. Take personalised dietary expert advice. Thank you.

Hello lybrate-user, the onset of pain with intake of any food whether liquid or solid- points towards gastritis as the first possibility. When there is hyperacidity then with the intake of any kind of food material which causes production of acid in the stomach lead to acute pain. In this kind of a situation it is better to start taking some anti-acidity medicines so that you can save yourself from the development of peptic ulcer later in your life. Currently it is also possible that you are suffering from erosive gastritis in which you have small erosions in the stomach which pain due to food or even water. You should not take this symptom lightly and try to make some lifestyle changes as well. For example you should cut down on spicy food, processed food, oily food, hot coffee, tea etc. Regards.

Hi for palpitation gold standard test is holter .a 24 hour holter will monitor the headt beats for 24 hours ,and will capture any rythm disturbances hence cause of palpitation can be ruled out Paplitation with muscle cramp can also be because of electrolyte disbalance! Thank you.

How to reduce ldl chelostrol?

Endocrinologist,
How to reduce ldl chelostrol?
Hello dear 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. 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, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Coconut oil increases the hdl cholestrol in our blood which is considered to be good cholestrol but it does not lower the ldl cholesterol (bad cholesterol) value and hence debate is still going on in maintaining its efficacy over olive oil for heart patients.

I. M heart patient before 7 month big heart attack come with me but recently my health is not good tell me the solution.
After a major heart attack, large part of heart may get damaged. So the working of heart gets affected and heart becomes weak. In that case you may feel weakness and breathlessness apart from chest pain. Your doctor may need to tailor and optimise your medicines to reduce your symptoms.

Is your hypertension estabilished. If so please consult your local physician or caridologist. For basic lifestyle changes, keep to ideal weight, eat nutritious and healthy food, avoiding too much of salt, oils and sweets. Also medium exercise and destressing would help.

My health is not well after some time and my bp was same time is not normal so sagaste me.
To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes.

Such issues are critical questions requiring very meticulous judgement which is possible only after getting to know entire case history of the patient. It will not be prudent to give any affirmative response to your query as I can guess the cardiologist in charge has probably advised for angioplasty and based on that you are seeking second or third opinion. That is very essential and you are doing exactly what I would have done for my own family. But no doctor will be able to opine without having all relevant details of the case. Medicine is not a prefect science like mathematics and that's why there is no formula. Only we get guidelines and protocols based on evidences. To follow protocols the doctor has to see that his judgement is based on criteria as laid down and those criteria are to be obtained from patient' case history.

Dear lybrate-user, You need to take a break from these supplements and switch to high nutritional value natural foods. Some treatment/medication to bring cholesterol may be needed (count not known) before you rely on natural foods to keep that under check. Stress (of food and work equally) can cause oxidative free radical increase that causes fatigue. This can be treated once counts are known. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, At age 62, it is not abnormal to have slight change in ECG. To know more about heart condition, do 2D Echo or Thallium miocardial perfusion scan. This will give information of heart functioning. Regards.
