Reduce salt to minimum. Reduce fats like transfats. Take some good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday to get protein and good fats. Take medicine but do exercise in moderation. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. If no relief with the group of medicines you are taking your doctor might change the medicines and give you a trial with another group of medicine.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

My father aged 68 years has been prescribed amtas at in the morning and cresar 80 in evening. Earlier he was on cresar 80 and amlovas 5 but bp was not controlled. I just wanted to know if the combination is safe for person of his age because I have read articles about atenolol not being suitable for elderly. Pls guide. He is not asthmatic. Does atenolol have the propensity to cause cns disturbances?

Atenolol is not known to cause any major CNS disturbance. It can at times cause low heart rate in elderly but that is reversible with stopping the medicine. Still if you are so concerned regarding atenolol please discuss with your prescribing doctor about your concerns and ask the doctor for alternative substitutes, they will be able to give you some substitute. Please understand that It is difficult to remote prescribe or suggest medicines without detailed evaluation of the patient and his general conditions and investigations, so the best thing for you is to take a consultation with a general physician (M.D medicine) or cardiologist near your area.

Hello. Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe's Alpha-Coff and Glyzyrrhiza Glabra 1x - both thrice a day daily for 4 days. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air (wrap a warm stole or muffler around neck). -Avoid excessive or rough use of your voice/ shouting. -Gargle with warm water and salt 3 times a day and take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. Home Remedies for Cough: -Stir some into some hot tea for comforting cough relief. You can also eat a spoonful of honey before bed to help calm coughs. -Warm saltwater gargles help moisturize your throat, which can quiet coughs. -Drink peppermint tea to help relieve coughs.

No, the season is hot and humid with lots of droplets in air which trap allergy giving elemts plus evaporation is less. Keep the fan on or use ac which regulates humidity. Restore water by ors type drinks & give him less fats. You must be already aware of diet after vsd operation. No creams or ointments. Only antiseptic powders or deo with spirit.

I am suffering from dry cough for the last 2 week and I have chest pain whenever.

I am suffering from dry cough for the last 2 week and I have chest pain whenever.
Hi there. Dry cough associated with chest pain since last 2 weeks. I suggest you to go for a chest x ray becoz pneumonia or a pleural effusion needs to be ruled out because sometimes they can present in a similar mannner. Also most of the times excessive coughing may lead to stretching of accessory respiratory muscles which may lead to chest pain. Also to keep in mind chronic acidity is a common cause of dry cough. Please consult a doctor if the problem persists. Take care.

Most likely to be costo chondritis, a low inflammatory condition of ribs meeting the central sternum. The joints are tender due to ligamentous inflammation which is not evident on x rays. Locally tenderness on touch is there. General lack of exercise aggravates this. Regular breathing and stretching exercises of chest muscles helps in increasing stretchability at these joints without causing pain. It needs patience for some length of period to get results. Occasional use of anti inflammatory and muscle relaxants can be made.

I'm not very clear about your blood pressure, so clarify on that. Stress can lead to fatigue, tiredness. You may feel like you have no energy or interest in doing anything. Take a multivitamin everyday. Make some dietary changes: avoid processed foods, reduce caffeine and increase fresh vegetables. As contradictory as this may sound, get some exercise. Sleep adequately. You can consult me for further management if required.
