Dear Lybrate User, I should appreciate you for the fact you believe that diabetes can be controlled by lifestyle modifications. Yes that's true, though it's not irreversible. Good that you have concentrated on physical activity , do concentrate on your diet as well. Make flaxseed, drumstick leaves, curry leaves powder and sprinkle 30 gm daily on all the foods you consume throughout the day. Also sprinkle wheat bran and germ daily 30gm throughout on all foods you consume. Consume lot of leeks and lettuce smoothie which is high in fibre content. Also you can consume raw lady's finger water soaked overnight for your diabetes condition.

Consult with a normal physician first he/ she will suggest you further tests and consultation. Go for rehabilitation also this is not your age to face all these problems. Try to do yoga or some light exercise.

I'm suffering with shoulder and chest pain on right side. Feeling like pain is moving around chest, shoulder and back.
This complaint most likely is due to joint and muscle pain. Your ideal weight should be 53-55 kg. Your weight is very much increased which may be a factor in causing pain.

I am 35 years old male. I have postmyocardial infarction syndrome from last 3 months.
If you had a heart attack and having recurrent chest pain, then get an angiography and angioplasty done. If already done, repeat a 2d echo. If there is anything you will need high dose aspirin three times daily for control of post mi syndrome. See your cardiologist soon.

What is symptoms of the cough and what is the effects on human health and what is the heart stroke.
Cough is a symptom of several diseases like allergy, asthma, chest infection, worm infestation etc to name a few. It cause chest pain, fracture of ribs, and very forcible coughs can cause giddiness, and hernias if cough is chronic. Heat stroke is due to exposure to high temperatures for example standing in hot climates for a few minutes to hours. You may experience tiredness, giddiness etc.

When I do some hard work, my heartbeat rate increase suddenly. Do I have some serious problem?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
When I do some hard work, my heartbeat rate increase suddenly. Do I have some serious problem?
Hi, when a strenuous work is done, our body muscles need more oxygenated blood to perform that work, hence the heart beats faster to supply more blood. This is a normal physiological function in all living beings. Therefore, you need not worry about this. But if the heart beat increases for no reason, then you should get evaluated.

Hello lybrate user, there are lots of causes of your concern but I feel it might be due to electrolyte imbalances in your blood (such as sodium or potassium) but do consult physician for any other medical issue. Limit or stop using caffeine. Some people are sensitive to caffeine and may notice more symptoms when using caffeine products (such as tea, coffee, soft drinks, and some over-the-counter medications). If you smoke, stop smoking. Limit your intake of alcohol. If not hypertensive can have lemon juice with sugar and salt or water with glucose and electoral powder once or twice a day depending upon the severity.

Go for 30 minutes of casual walk in the evening every day. That's all you need. You will get blood pressure and may be other diseases if you neglect your health. Check your blood sugar, thyroid also. Nowadays people in 20 get sugar.

My blood cholesterol is high at 280 and hdl 54 ldl 186 calculated and trick s is 201 so what should be the treatment?

My blood cholesterol is high at 280 and hdl 54 ldl 186 calculated and trick s is 201 so what should be the treatment?
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 . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Some anti hypertensive medicines also cause diminished libido and erection problems as also anxiety issues. Need is to remain tension less by yoga, practice of pranayam and meditation and walks and good diet. Herbal support is useful if above tips are not able to show results in a month. If at all you need herbal support, pl do not take from fly by night operators posing to sell khandani ayurveda products. Otherwise you may be at loss. You may consult any ayurveda consultant near you. General treatment is for 7 weeks. Saptadhatuvardhak herbs are the answer.

Pros are plenty from cleansening the system, reducing bad fats in blood & sugar resulting in weight loss if person does not eat more during rest of the day. Cons are -some people prone to get asthma attacks get a trigger attack after taking lemon juice, which may erode the teeth enamel too. Ideally chew something like an apple or a datun immediately after drinking lemon juice, so that it stays in contact with teeth for minimum time. Some people do say that it erodes the bones but there is no proof. One has to weigh benefits vs. Loss. Regarding bones, teeth and total health.
