I have heart problem. Please suggest me suitable diet so cholesterol level maintain in control.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
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 .

Whenever I run or do hard work or dance VB my chest and abdomen is paining very hardly. What shiould I do to become pained out of these?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
This is side stitch. Stretching may relieve the pain of a stitch. Reduce pace until pain lessens. Some pain alleviation can be achieved by grabbing an object such as a small rock and clutching it firmly in your hand whilst running. The alleviation is believed to stem from the fact that this gives your body something else to focus on, rather than the pain in your side, and although the effectiveness of this method is individual, it can for a lot of people make quite a significant difference. Massage or press on the area with pain. Bend forward to stretch the diaphragm and ease the pain. Raise both hands above the head and inhale fully, expanding the abdominal and thoracic cavities, then exhale fully, tightening core muscles to do so until pain subsides.

What is the reason heart strokes coming in young age below 30 when we need cardiac checkups.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Stroke is blockage of blood supply to brain,similar to a heart attack when blood vessels supplying blood to the heart get blocked. Reasons are same ,so are the ways to prevent.Stop smoking/exposure to pollution, less of bad fats like transfats and some good fats like 5 gms of pure ghee/butter, daily exercise, keeping sugar & cholesterol under control,taking less stress, meditation and yoga and Not Taking Everything to Heart. Cholesterol related plaque is the cause of blocks in vessels and it is advisable Not to give Pizzas/Burgers/junk food to kids even , take more green vegetables and seasonal fruits. Cholesterol + blood sugar should be checked 20 on wards at least once a year , if high then diet control is the best medicine. You have written that you have had a cardiac arrest in the past and you are only 30! you suffered from gastric ulcers also which are no longer affecting you , there must be some proof like gastroscopy to reassure you about No ulcers in the stomach. Both of these illnesses are due to stress and wrong eating habits , I am sure by now you are counselled well about Diet and relaxation , If not get back here for more help.

How Do You Get Rid of Bad Breath?

How Do You Get Rid of Bad Breath?

Here are 3 Simple & effective tips that you can help you fight bad breath and keep your mouth healthy on a daily basis.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

If you’re suffering from bad breath problems, it is important that you brush and floss twice a day. Use fluoride-based toothpaste that will help you to keep your mouth clean and remove food debris and plaque. It is also important to brush your teeth before you go to bed because bacteria can grow in your mouth while you’re asleep. It is also important that you scrape your tongue to remove any residue that may be building up after you eat your meals.

Keep Your Mouth Moist

Keeping your mouth moist is another way to eliminate bad breath issues which is why you need to ensure that you drink good amount of water throughout the day. Drinking adequate amount of water will help you stay hydrated as well. You can also chew sugarless chewing gums or candies that can stimulate production of saliva in your mouth to wash away food particles and bacteria. Choose chewing gums that have xylitol are always recommended.

Watch What You Eat

Certain foods can trigger bad breath in your mouth and therefore you need to keep log of what food you eat. This will help you to narrow down certain food items that worsen your bad breath problems. Similarly, there are certain medications that also trigger mouth odour, hence it is recommended that you talk about it with your dentist. Stay away from tobacco products and avoid smoking which also leads to bad breath issues.

We recommend that you visit your dentist regularly, at least twice a year to conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and to ensure that your mouth is clean and healthy. Your dentist will also be able to help you know whether the bad breath problem is due to general health conditions or triggered due to any food item or medications.

Chest pain may be caused due to various reasons. I may be due to heart problems, lungs problems, anxiety, digestion problem etc. First thing you should do is to get an ecg done, if there is any heart problem it may be detected in it. You should visit your doctor for detailed check up. Wish you good health. Take care. With regards Dr. S. Modak

400 ml of green tea is a lot. I do not know about the side effects of it but I suggest 200 ml twice a day is okay. If you do find any abnormal chest discomfort or heart beats please consult your physician also.

I am a diabetic and under medication since last 3 years. But my glycosylated hb (hba1c) remains around 8-9. I am using amaryl-m2 twice and januvia 100 mg. I am also using bp medicine telma am.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Having an hba1c between 8-9 shows that you are uncontrolled inspite of treatment and indicates that you are open to the complications of diabetes due to this uncontrolled state. Hba1c is an average of blood glucose over a span of 3 months. As hba1c starts to increase from 7.3 % onward the contribution of sugar disequilibrium is mostly contributed by raised fasting glucose rather than post meals blood glucose. If I ask you to check your sugars regularly- you will find your fasting glucose much raised than your post meals glucose. Hence you require change in the medicines that focus more on your fasting glucose and that will bring your hba1c down to the target of 7%.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to muscular or other soft tissue disorder - also reduce your weight by dieting & exercise - give rest to the part, do not bend, lift weight or do exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation of the area three time a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - if still not much relief then take an over the counter pain relief tab after meal.

Hi Doctor I am 29 years old from age of 21 I got many problems like high blood pressure and stomach problem please give me some suggestion to get rid from these diseases Thanks.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take Rauvolfia 1x, 2 tabs daily morning empty stomach. Drink plenty of liquids and cut down your fat, salt and sugar intake. go for a morning walk daily at least for 30 minutes. Take a sound sleep and try to avoid anger. Home remedies to Control high BP:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium.So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart.If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day.

Ayurveda, Udupi
Dear, *high blood pressure is a common disease in which blood flows through blood vessels (arteries) at higher than normal pressures. *chew 2-3 raw garlic cloves everyday, garlic slows down the pulse rate and smoothens the heart's rhythm. *nutrition, exercise, breathing exercises (pranayama), yoga, meditation, behavioral modification along with various herbs and minerals are prescribed. *ayurvedic diet for hypertension: avoid meat, eggs and salt, reduce protein intake, follow the following vegetarian diet: vegetables: garlic, lemon, parsley, fruits: indian gooseberry, grape fruuit, watermelon, dairy: milk, cottage cheese, clarified butter. Limit sodium in the diet. Cigarette smokers tend to have high blood pressure. Nicotine increases the resting heart rate and increases the release of the adrenaline correct diet and control weight. One important thing to do is lose any excess amount of body fat. One of the good reasons to be slim (lean) is to keep your blood pressure low, losing body fat will lower the pressure *life style: *regular exercise is one of the best ways to lower blood pressure. Exercise has to be of right kind. A good exercise programme, particularly endurance exercises such as jogging or athletics, will cause the peripheral resistance to decrease. Exercise helps to eliminate body fat, lower total cholesterol and raise hdl cholesterol that prevents fatty - cholesterol deposits. According to ayurveda exercise improves the body, depletes excess fats, brings lightness of the body. *yoga and breath therapy, *meditating and practicing breathing exercises regularly are essential to establishing a new relaxation response in place of the hypertensive reflex to stress.
