I am newly married person and I had a difficult situation now, that my wife is suffering from heavy blood lose and stomach pain during her periods and taken to hospital few day ago. During the consultation I understood that she is having this problem since the age of 18 and using the tab droniz 20 for the past 5 years, and we couldnt have sex till now because she is experiencing breast pain also with this and having irritations in touching her private parts ,is this a side effect of the tab or any thing else, recent scan report of uterus indicates that the wall thickness is high. Whom should I consult to solve these issues, is there any complication in having sex this condition since the no blood flow or pain is now existing other than breast pain. Please consider this with prior importance, her bp is always low as 60/100.

My cholesterol is 228 what should I do? do I need to worry about this?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
My cholesterol is 228
what should I do?
do I need to worry about this?
Hello dear you need worry.you have high cholesterol. 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 .

Hi lybrate-user betablockers are not the first line medicines for hypertension, shift him from beta blockers to calcium channel blockers or at 1 antagonist like losartan. After taking seloken xl if bp is 140/90 its a matter of concern, as his age is just 31. A 2 d echo can also be done to rule out any associated left ventricle hypertrophy. You have not mentione his smoking and alcoholic habits severe life style modifications should be tried for 3 months you can read about it in my health tips thanks.

I want know about how reduce headache and I have low bp, and my nails become White patches. I am getting sleep early.
If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, depression inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2. Avoid stress, physical and mental exertion, have adequate sound sleep for 7-8 hours daily in the night 3. Go for regular exercise 4. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control your emotion and relieve stress 5. Check for refractive error, sinusitis hemoglobin, bp 6. Avoid prolonged use of cell phone/computer 7. Consult neurologist to rule out other causes of headache, if required take a ct scan of head to exclude any brain lesion 8. If it is migraine you have to take migraine prophylactic drug after consulting neurologist.

Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid foods as much as you can.

There is no treatment for missed abortion except getting it cleared by latest methods (will tell you later) This generation is lucky to get it diagnosed at 8 weeks or sometime later ,because of ultrasound facility available everywhere , years ago , women used to keep waiting / imagining fetal movements and doctors had to do per abdomen examination along with internal examination to match the dates along with development of fetus , it used to be a difficult task to declare a missed abortion or a still birth because even x-ray ( not done during pregnancy ) was not of much help. If your wife is 9 weeks with no heart beat , medical abortion can be done , D& C will be required only if some pieces are left, tiny membranes which do not show on ultrasound and woman keeps bleeding for more than 10 days or she develops fever due to uterine infection , A pack of 5 tablet is available on prescription of a doctor , it is written clearly on pack as to how to take tablets - 1 tab on day 1 , 1 tab twice daily on day 2 & 3 even if abortion looks to be complete on day 1 itself but the process of complete abortion takes 3 days , therefore course should be taken as advised.

5 Healthy Heart Cues: V-Day Special
Research has shown that over more than 78 per cent of men between 30 and 34 in urban India, run the risk of a heart attack and their hearts are ageing faster than their real age.
Following Simple Healthy Heart Ways can help you keep heart disease at bay:

1. Drink at least 8-12 glasses of water a day, depending on your body weight.
2. Get your fill of essential fatty acids - raw nuts and/or seeds are a good source of Omega-3 and Omega-6. These are essential because humans can’t manufacture them within the body.
3. Eat high-quality proteins. Seafood, eggs, beans, chicken, mutton etc are excellent sources. Vegetarians can and obtain Proteins from grains, sprouted grains, raw nuts and raw seeds esp. soya.
4. Walk at least 30 minutes every day. Exercise is good, but walking is amazing.
5. Keep body weight, blood pressure, blood sugar and lipids under control.

However, if you are already facing heart problem, consider non-invasive and non-surgical treatments such as Artery Clearance Therapy (ACT) / Chelation therapy and External Counter Pulsation (ECP) options, before stents or bypass surgery.
