I am suffering from dry cough. My heart region is paining when I get cough. What should I do now?
Dry cough, may be due to pollution or allergy. Get an x ray done and a complete blood picture that will show signs of allergy and infections if any, including tb. This test costs 200-300/- only. Till then take steam inhalations, salt gargles, warm water with honey, do not smoke (if you do) stay indoors with plants as they emit natural oxygen. Get back here with reports.

Ok. U are in the prediabetes stage. So concentrate on your diet and exercise. Continue walking. Take low glycemic index diet. Better to keep cholesterol less than 160. No need to take any medicine right now but repeat FBS and HbA1C regularly. Keep HbA1C less than 6.4.

Your symptoms suggest u r suffering from gastric acidity...Here are tips for reducing acidity . -Relax and eat food slowly Avoid skipping breakfast. - Eat smaller meals;Don't overeat -Limit fluids intake during meals. As it increases stomach distension. -Avoid foods and drinks that trigger acidity (e.g. Fatty ,Spicy foods, onions, garlic, peppermint, chocolate, coffee,tea, citrus fruits or juices, tomatoes, cola or alcohol) -Wear loose-fitting clothes.Tight clothes or belts can constrict your stomach. -Do daily exercise.like walking;It keeps you upright, allowing gravity to aid digestion -Don't lie down after eating.Wait at least 2-3 hours after meal before sleeping. Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food -TREATMENT: -mucaine gel syp 2 tsp twice daily will help -tablet Rabicip-D. taken twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach. for hypertension management kindly let me know ur exact bp levels

Hi doctor, I had a question about the readings I got on two separate echocardiogram reports which I took in a gap of about 5 months. Every thing in all the reports is normal. However my LVID in the most recent report has increased significantly, I'm not sure if I should be worried about this. Also I must mention that, the most recent echo report with the increased parameters was taken just a little while after a maximal stress test. Where my heart rate reached 190bpm. The stress test was normal. The older reports were taken at rest. I'm a 23 year old boy, normal weight, 5'11' Could the stress test have increased the left ventricular chamber size? I'm quite worried. My doctor says the report is fine, but he did not look at the previous report. Also, all three reports were taken by different lab technicians. Measurement 01/03/16 21/10/15 31/8/2010 Ao (ed) 2.7cm 2.7cm 3.0cm LA (es) 3.3cm 3.5cm 3.2cm LVID (ed) 4.9cm 4.2cm 4.4cm LVID (es) 3.1cm 2.4cm 2.4cm IVS (ed/es) 0.9cm 0.9cm 0.8cm LVPW (ed/es) 0.9cm 0.9cm 0.8cm EF 67% 62% 76%

Function of heart is >70% ,stress test is normal. ECG report is not the Only criteria of a heart disease. It is the most basic test , if it shows no changes about heart disease and person is suffering other tests are done, like in your case and All is Well. Reports are normal , take preventive care about food,exercise,stress and other factors like high BP that lead to heart disease.

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is called diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually the systolic number comes before or above the diastolic number. A reading of 119/79 or lower is normal blood pressure 140/90 or higher is high blood pressure Between 120 and 139 for the top number, or between 80 and 89 for the bottom number is called prehypertension. Prehypertension means you may end up with high blood pressure, unless you take steps to prevent it. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but it can cause serious problems such as stroke, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure. You can control high blood pressure through healthy lifestyle habits such as exercise and the DASH diet and taking medicines, so to answer your question, yes its normal and you don't have to consult a doctor. But yes do keep a regular Blood pressure record t monitor your control.

Mr Sanjay, All the three conditions need to be in proper control with appropriate drugs, then only the patient is in good health and shape.For diabetes and hypertension strict control of blood sugar and blood pressure is very essential. Unless all the details are made available like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP readings, weight and height, drugs being taken with dosage and dietary pattern and amount of exercise done daily, it is difficult for me to give any specific suggestions. Anxious feeling is mainly due to improper control of the condition.. Apart from taking proper medications she should take a restricted diet, providing exact calories based on her ideal body weight, sugar levels, and extent of exercise. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day) . Her salt intake has to be restricted to 2.3 g a day. Avoid pickles and papad . Should walk for at least 45 minutes a day. This routine has to be continuously followed. If you want any specific advice then please come in a private conversation, where i can give specific suggestions.
