Dear Lybrateuser, -In PSVT there is increase in heart rate due to the various defects in the electrical conduction mechanism of the heart -many patients do not require any active treatment, person with frequent attacks should consult a cardiologist, medication may be prescribed & if medication fails then a procedure called radiofrequency catheter ablation can be done to restore the normal heart rhythm.

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 .

Dear lybrate-user Ideally. Let us wait for the MRI. The echo report could indicate a condition by birth. So it could be a weakness, not disease. Minor changes in diet and exercise will help. Mentally stay positive. Regards.

BHMS
Homeopath,

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. As you are suffering from high blood pressure you must be taking some medicines for your problem. If you are not taking any medicines I would advise you to walk for at least 1 hour daily. Abstain from high cholesterol rich foods like red meat, eggs. Don't over-exert yourself. Your high blood pressure will make you to sweat much than normal persons, so don't forget to drink plenty of water. Try to have at least 8 hours sleep. Last but surely not the least, try to avoid any type of mental stress.

Dear, To control & maintan BP 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. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

Lybrate-user, the condition being described looks like he had an attack of hypoglycemia. Did you check his blood glucose level then? if blood glucose level goes below 70 mg or lower like <60 mg or even lower, patient may get such attacks. It is important to achieve a strict blood glucose control, but equally important thing is not to allow episodes of hypoglycemia. Severe hypoglycemia can be very dangerous, particularly in elderly persons. If you have a glucometer at home, it is better to check glucose level. If it is low, then it is essential to give glucotabs 2 or 3 tabs cor candy, sugar ar some sweet etc can help. Thanks.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all I would like to tell you don't be disappointed, there are so many people who are living with diabetes life long but it is under controlled with the help of medicine & diet planning. Had you done your hba1c? it should be in the range of 6-6.5% for good control of diabetes. There are some dietary changes that will help you. Take small & frequent meal. Take more & more green leafy vegetables. Avoid simple sugar & simple carbs in your diet. Avoid table salt in meal. Do not take chips, papad, pickel or any other salty products. Avoid oily/ fried / outside food. Take whole wheat products or fiber rich diet like daliya/ oats/ multigrain flour etc. Do regular walk/ exercise/ swimming/ jogging whatever you like atleast for 30 minutes. Take a consultation with the dietician. One most important thing regarding your kidney & liver, discuss with your treating doctor for lft (liver function test) & kft (kidney function test) test. I think you should go through complete annual/ half yearly health check-up.

Hi. You do not have to take any precausions just because you have undergone open heart surgery for asd. Just once ask your surgeon doctor or your heart doctor about any particular precautions for you. Some of the heart parameters like pah etc, if they are normal, then you are allowed to do all things that you want to. Take care.
