Lybrate-user, looking at the test results given following are high - triglycerides, ggt and tsh. This means you have hypothyroidism (tsh 20.5mu/l), which needs immediate treatment. Secondly high triglycerides (tgl) also needs to be checked. Ideally tgl should be less than 150 mg. High ggt value points to a problem with liver, particularly with alcohol drinking. Thanks.

Mr dosage of thyrofit (100 mcg) being taken by your wife appears to be ok, because her tsh level is still very high. She should test the levels every 8 weeks and adjust the dosage accordingly. Your dose of thyrofit (25 mcg) also looks ok, but get the thyroid functions done every 2 - 3 months and adjust the dose either up wards or downwards.

Pain on the right side of the chest could be due to muscle pain, hyper acidity, some lung issue, liver issue. We cannot give a straight answer to that because unless you give some more information we can pin point the ailment. So either come in private chat for detailed discussion or take him to a local qualified doctor for proper assessment and treatment. Good luck.

Diet restriction, daily exercise like walking for 40 min and various medicines - oral - according to your levels of fbs and ppbs with hba1c is ideal remedy. There is no treatment to cure permanently but one can control level of diabetes mellitus. Consult doctor at your city in person.

Hello, It does. But any oil for that matter will contribute to unwanted calories if taken in excess. A bit of coconut oil can be used for cooking, just watch the quantity to minimal.

What are the different symptoms of heart attack, cardiac arrest and stroke?

Many people put cardiac arrest, heart attack and a stroke in the same category. But all these conditions differ in symptoms, severity and background. Making a difference between these three health issues is really important, in order to know how to help a patient and how to prevent any of the conditions becoming more severe. To learn and educate yourselves more, read the full explanation of these conditions below:

1. Heart attack

This represents a circulation disorder. In case a person's blood flow is blocked or oxygen deprived, the blood does not get to the heart muscle and if left untreated immediately, could kill the organ. It is important to know that the heart is still working, when someone suffers a heart attack.

2. Cardiac arrest

This condition is known as an electrical disorder. When someone's electrical activity in the heart is disrupted, tachycardia happens and the blood flow immediately stops moving thought the body. When this happens, the heart stops working altogether.

3. Stroke

This is also known as a brain disorder. Strokes are divided into three types:

Ischemic stroke- when the artery carrying blood and oxygen to the brain is blockedtransient ischemic attack (tia)  also familiar as a mini stroke; it occurs when there is a short artery blood flow to the brainhemorrhagic stroke- this represents a ruptured artery inside the brain

Heart attack symptoms:

Here are the most common symptoms that can indicate heart attacks:

(angina) burden inside the chest, mistaken for indigestion. It repeats every few minutes. body pain- especially in the neck, back, abdomen, jaw, arms (particularly the left one) wheezing and shallow breathingcold sweatingdizziness and fatigue episodesanxietycoughingnausea

Treatment for these symptoms is usually via medication and incorporating a healthy diet.


Cardiac arrest symptoms:

These symptoms often occur minutes before cardiac arrest happens. Here they are:

Weakness black out fainting shallow breaths chest pain excessive palpitation

In some cases the person can also identify the following symptoms:

Sudden collapse shortage of breath weak or no pulse little or no responsiveness

Cardiac arrests are dangerous, because the symptoms occur rapidly and are usually lethal.


Stroke symptoms:

Nausea blurred speech face, arm or leg numbness or paralysis (especially on one side) headaches and vomiting mental disorientation, forgetfulness of names and places, distraction and loss of concentration impaired vision and double vision excessive sweating walking issues and dizziness transient ischaemic attack (tia)
