Dear Lybrateuser, - Do exercises to strengthen your chest muscles like a few pushups, stretch bands - consult a cosmetic surgeon as size reduction is possible by surgery, no medication works.

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 . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily. continue diabetic medicines.

You probably have gerd, an esophageal disorder. You need to eat less, avoid spicy food, tea coffee and alcohol and eat at regular time. See a good doctor to get medicines. They certainly will help you.

Hello lybrate-user. It's natural to wish not to use any medicine for your bp. Well there are alternative means for controlling bp. Although not as effective as medicine but they can be tried at first particularly when your bp is in high normal or borderline range. Low salt diet, foods rich in fruits n vegetables and containing less of sugars and fats, getting good n regular sleep, moderate and regular exercise atleast 30 minutes per day, avoiding stress and anxiety are some of the measures that can be tried. But you should remember that controlling bp should be your aim with or without medicines. Thank you and good luck.

Hi, When the blood supply is cut off to the cardiac muscles due to blockage in the coronary vessels, heart attack occurs. Please follow these tips to avoid heart attacks: - Work out everyday (yoga or gym) or walk for 1 hour daily. -Avoid excessive intake of sweets, oil fried food, excessive intake of carbohydrates. - Take high fibre diet. - Check your lipid profile once in 6 months and sugar levels once in 3 months. - Undergo stress test (TMT) once in a year - Avoid sedentary life style and be active. - Do not put on weight - Use heart friendly cooking oil like rice bran oil, olive oil, etc - Avoid mental tension and worries.

Yes get ecg done plus other basic tests like echo, stress test, blood test for sugar and lipids. If silent heart attack is feared, get specific test troponin from a drop of blood from finger. Tell her not to take tensions as more than bad fats or smoking, tension leads to heart attack.

Hello, Lybrate user, Hypertension is a silent killer, caused due to irregular life style, stress,anxiety, inadequate sleep, improper intake, increasing cholesterol level, and we never get liberty of it for d whole life. I being a homoeopath can suggest you some recourse in homoeopathy. Precaution: * U need to opt certain natural norms to control BP, other than medication. * if You are over weight ,please try to reduce your weight to get rid of your BP, by reducing cholesterol level.* Go for a brisk walk in d morning to restore blood circulation to check your cholesterol level.

Homoeo medicine @ china 200-6 pills, thrice a day. @ pulsatilla30-6 pills, thrice a day. Please, report, fortnightly.
