Stop smoking immediately. Constant chest pain is not due to heart. However you should get vit d and b 12 checked. Also check thyroid and sugar. Based on the results treatment will be decided.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to muscular or bony problem as pain is on movement - do not exert, bend, lift weight or exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation three times a day - apply pain killer gel three times a day - take a pain killer tablet if pain is more - do x- ray chest if pain does not improve & consult a doctor.

Plz suggest me the best oil with brand name. For cooking. And specially for the heart.
Mustard oil in moderation. Use soy oil for frying, and don't reuse the oil for frying, use it for cooking vegetables by sauting for few minutes followed by steam cooking using a pressure cooker so that taste is not lost or one doesn't get a feeling of eating boiled, staple food. Olive oil is overhyped, expensive and not meant for indian style of cooking, we are not even sure about purity of olive oil we are buying in department stores.

What we can eat for our health and control cholesterol and our health problems? Please help me.

What we can eat for our health and control cholesterol and our health problems? Please help me.
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 I'm a 35 year old female. I'm a diabetic patient. I read from Lybrate that lady's finger can reduce blood sugar level to an extent. But I heard that having lady's finger will increase the cholesterol level. Is that true?

Hi, as mentioned there are some reports suggesting that using ladies finger (okra) does help in reducing blood sugar, but these are only studies in rats in laboratory. So extrapolating that effect on to human being is not good. It is a good green vegetable, gives vitamins, potassium and fibers etc. But as a treatment for diabetes it is not supported by any clinical studies. One can consume it in good quantity because it is a good vegetable.

Are bananas are good for heart. I have read in somewhere that bananas ate not good for heart.
Bananas are best for heart yes they are a rich source of potassium and you can eat ad many as you like. There will be no extra potassium which will harm the heart. Yes potassium taken as medicine does cause harmful side effects. Don't bother about extra calories also because it is giving you other essential vitamins and minerals too. Cut down other calories which are either empty calories like excess sugar or just basic calories like chapattis.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.
