Hello dear patient. 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 . 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 .

Please tell me sir what is the symptoms of cardiac arrest after the age of 50 for a male patient?
Usually, the first sign of sudden cardiac arrest (sca) is loss of consciousness (fainting). At the same time, no heartbeat (or pulse) can be felt. Some people may have a racing heartbeat or feel dizzy or light-headed just before they faint.

Sir, I am too weak.
I can't run long distance.

Pls help me
I am too worry.
No need to worry. It is not heart pain. Your stamina is less hence your lungs and chest are feeling strained. Build up your stamina by walking more. Jog more. Climb steps more. Increase Time and distances gradually. Your body will adapt slowly and after a few months you will feel better and stronger.

CT angiogram reveals the areas where there is no proper blood supply to the heart. Any part of the body require nutrition and oxygen for its function. Nurtrition and oxygen to all parts of the body is supplied by the blood. As the heart is doing exercise that contraction and relaxation every second of day and night throughout your body, if it doesnot receive proper and sufficient amount of blood every second, heart stops functioning. You know what happens when heart stops functioning. CT angio is only indicative investigation. The correct investigation is angiogram. Then why they suggest CT angio is if the patient is unfit for procedures and its easy and cheaper comparatively. Changes in Echo and ECG has to be there as you say that her BP is uncontrolled. So go for regular checkups and follow up with the cardiologist will help in avoiding the complication of the high BP.

Hello sir I am 33 year old man I have low blood pressure problem last five months what should I do please help me doctor.

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Jaipur
Depending on the cause of your symptoms, your doctor may tell you to increase your blood pressure by making these simple changes: Eat a diet higher in salt. Drink lots of nonalcoholic fluids/ especially salty drink e.g. salty lassi, salty lemon water, et.c. Limit alcoholic beverages. Drink more fluids during hot weather and while sick with a viral illness, such as a cold or the flu. Get regular exercise to promote blood flow. Be careful when rising from lying down or sitting. To help improve circulation, pump your feet and ankles a few times before standing up. Then proceed slowly. When getting out of bed, sit upright on the edge of the bed for a few minutes before standing. Elevate the head of your bed at night by placing bricks or blocks under the head of bed. Avoid heavy lifting. Avoid straining while on the toilet. Avoid prolonged exposure to hot water, such as hot showers and spas. If you get dizzy, sit down. It may be helpful to keep a chair or stool in the shower in case you need to sit; to help prevent injury, use a nonslip chair or stool designed for use in showers and bath tubs. To avoid problems with low blood pressure and lessen episodes of dizziness after meals, try eating smaller, more frequent meals. Cut back on carbohydrates. Rest after eating. Avoid taking drugs to lower blood pressure before meals. If needed, use elastic support (compression) stockings that cover the calf and thigh. These may help restrict blood flow to the legs, thus keeping more blood in the upper body.
