Hello dear 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 .

Should my father start bp tablet. His daily bp reading is 150/100 .nd his age is 50 years.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Yes, he must start medications. Hypertension is when your blood pressure is above 140/90, and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120.High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke.Eating a healthier diet with less salt, exercising regularly and taking medications can help lower blood pressure.

My son's age is 14 years, his BP is around 130/70 to 140/70. His height is 164 cm and weight is 66 kgs. His father has diabetes and BP. Whether my son will have any problem in future?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
At 14 years his bp particularly systolic is high. Ideally it should be closer to 105 to 110 and diastolic around 60 to 70 mm. If father has diabetes, then children can get it. But it is a preventable condition. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle one can prevent or postpone it.

I have heard that diabetics suffer silent heart attacks. But how can one diagnose that they have suffered one, or is there any pre-heart attack symptoms that a diabetic can understand or decipher ?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, -Because of nerve damage, people with diabetes may not have typical chest pain during a heart attack, instead they may experience milder chest pressure or sudden shortness of breath or sweating, or even an unexplainable change in blood glucose levels -on investigation ecg may show changes.

Hi lybrate-user, If you have got all your tests done, and everything came out to be normal you are suffering from Anxiety disorder. Start with medication of Anxiety. It might help you to know that anxious people tend to breathe in faulty ways, hence the emphasis on breathing exercises as part of relaxation exercises. Examples of faulty breathing include mouth breathing, sighing and hyperventilating. This can cause chest discomfort, because it not only strains the accessory muscles (those between the ribs and at the top of the ribcage, between the shoulders and the neck), but also can irritate the cartilage between the ribs. Either of these things (or both together) can cause localized chest pain and tenderness as well as" crushing" “stabbing” or" stitches" - painful muscle spasms in the chest wall. The next time you get this chest pain, notice how you are breathing. If your breathing is faulty as described above, then close your mouth and breathe through your nose. Combine this with a mild analgesic such as Paracetamol and relaxation exercises or a relaxation CD. If you can tolerate a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine such as Ibuprofen, this will also help. Hopefully this will allow the muscles to rest and relax so that you experience much less discomfort in your chest or none at all. Remember that muscle spasm is very painful, and as you have had anxiety for some time it isn't surprising that your chest and neck muscles are affected. The other thing with breathing is to try shifting your focus to your belly. Remember that it's your diaphragm moving down, not your ribs moving out, that facilitates breathing. Your diaphragm moves, pulling air into your lungs, which expands your ribcage. Place your hands lightly on your belly and feel it move up and down. You can even expand your belly muscles as if to breathe down there. Let your ribs do what they like – just try not to think about them (easier said than done, I know). This sort of breathing is taught in yoga and can be very helpful. Please consult a psychologist for psychotherapy and anxiety management.

You should go for a routine Echo test to know % functiong of heart and an ECG to know about fresh damage to heart + new test called troponin test done on a drop of blood taken from finger , if it is reactive ,it means fresh heart attack , ECG can show old heart attack changes plus may or may not show new changes .

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is the pressure of the blood in the arteries. It occurs when the pressure of the blood is abnormally low. Blood pressure is typically recorded as the systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic pressure (time between two beats). A consistent blood pressure reading of 90/60 mm hg or lower is considered low blood pressure. People with low bp may experience symptoms of dizziness or syncope (fainting) as the blood flow to the brain and other vital organs becomes insufficient. Regular walking morning and any querries inform me.
