Stop pant d and modify your eating habits. Take kitchen remedies for good digestion-ginger, garlic, jeera, heeng, ajwain and eat according to your constitution. Exercise to digeat food and avoid gas forming acidic foods with more oils and spices. Do eat regularly. Regarding skipping heart beats and av block, get in touch with your doctor -may be you need a pacemaker which is highly advanced these days-as smal as a capsule and fitted like angiography test.

At your age, the best advice is to be strict about your eating habits, proper exercise. No tobacco and restricted non vegetarian. If the BP increases just once. It is a warning to change your lifestyle. Remember, what you do today will affect your future life. Do not take eating out so casually.

Please follow anti tubercular treatment as scheduled. But all of anti tb medicines are toxic to liver specially r cinex, therefore need to do liver function tests every month or earlier if some changes like loss of appetite / jaundice symptoms felt. We advise liver toxic food like fats & other heavy medicines known to be toxic to liver and kidneys. Atovas is used to lower cholesterol but fats are not given to patients on treatment for tb, emphasis is on high carbs & more simple proteins. There is no need to give this medicine which is toxic to liver. He is being given ace inhibitor to bring down bp-this medicine can lead to cough confusing symptoms of tb. Change to safer beta blockers after consulting with your doctors. Regarding medicines to dissolve blockages, our system has not much to offer for old blockages, be careful about interactions with ayurvedic medicines also. I can suggest simple things which may help dissolve blockages & help the liver also. Juice of pomegranate, spoon of honey + juice of a lemon in warm water on empty stomach, apple cider vinegar plus honey. Avoid all fats except good fats like a spoon of pure ghee only plus a katori of assorted nuts to get much needed protein plus good fats. He must be on bed rest, get some physiotherapic advice to improve the blood circulation otherwise get massage done on entire body. If person is not eating bad fats, the levels of lipids remain within limits and there is no need for medicines to lower cholesterol. Give him high protein diet like simple things like toned milk, curd, chhachh, boiled eggs, clear fat free soups of vegetables and pulses. Get back here for more guidance with latest reports of liver function tests, cbc & total lipid profile. Good luck. Continue giving multivitamin in the list of medicines above.

If your daily diet lacks iodine, you can develop a condition known as iodine deficiency disorder or IDD, which is detrimental to your thyroid gland. This condition can be reversed by routine intake of iodized salt. The human body does not produce iodine, so if you do not receive iodine through iodized salt or some other means, your thyroid gland does not produce sufficient levels of thyroid hormone. This condition, known as hypothyroidism, can cause weight gain, fatigue, depression, increased cholesterol levels and muscle cramps.

The range of heart rate is normal. It should be with 60 - 80 per minute. So there is nothing to be worried about.

Hello dear High 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,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

ECG can give condition of functioning of the heart. It does not give a direct reference to the presence of blockages, although, sever disturbance in ECG can indicate blockage kind of disease. 2D Echo reports will be required to see if damage is so extensive that angioplasty is required. Rotablade may not be the best option for treatment. Angiography is an invasive, extensive visual study of the condition of blood vessels supplying nutrition to the heart, the treatment that follows would be implanting a stent or ballooning. There are other options that are non invasive and medicine based. If you can take a private consultation with our doctors, we will be able to help you better.

Hi my friend is suffering from hypoglycaemia and he's non diabetic. Doc suggested with insulin antibody serum test. What is this test for? The report showed 20U/ml What did this reading mean?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The anti-insulin antibody test checks to see if your body has produced antibodies against insulin. Normally, there are no antibodies against insulin in your blood. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories.

For a 15 yrs old boy, heart condition is very very rare. So I will go for other simple reasons like worms, chest infection, esophagitis, bone and muscle disorder. This needs a personal check up. So go and see your family doctor. You should get rid of pain in less than a week.

Hello Cardiac Doctors, We have been blessed with boy baby on 10-APRIL-2016, and my wife having congenital heart disease (Severe PS VSD), now here my question is that she is continuously feeding my baby through breast feeding so the continuous breast feeding may create any problem to her heart or not? Please suggest. Thanks.

No, her ps and vsd, have got nothing to do with her feeding the boy on breast. Breast feeding is a secretory function of the glands mostly without any muscular action or increase in cardiac load, so she should continue doing so without apprehension. As far as her cardiac problem is there, follow the physician who has been treating her all the while.
