Most likely to be costo chondritis, a low inflammatory condition of ribs meeting the central sternum. The joints are tender due to ligamentous inflammation which is not evident on x rays. Locally tenderness on touch is there. General lack of exercise aggravates this. Regular breathing and stretching exercises of chest muscles helps in increasing stretchability at these joints without causing pain. It needs patience for some length of period to get results. Occasional use of anti inflammatory and muscle relaxants can be made.

Hi Is there any tablets for cholesterol reducing.

Hi Is there any tablets for cholesterol reducing.
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.

Your cholesterol and triglyceride levels are high and you also want to lose weight. Orlistat is the medicine which is prescribed for weight loss. However in my experience it is not a very effective medicine. At best you will be able to lose around 5kg and that too will not be a sustained loss because you would regain weight once this medicine is stopped. Our body maintains its weight in a range bound fashion. It tries to keep the weight within a strict range. So whenever we lose weight, our body interprets it as a sign of weakness and tries to bring back the weight back to the same original as for the body it is the normal weight. For our body or appearance does not matter-appearance is a social parameter, not a physiological parameters. Job of our body is to maintain physiology not a social appearance. A sustained a loss of weight is only possible if you have a persistent and consistent weight loss so that the entire range of your weight decreases and your body respects it. Hope my answer helps you. Regards.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

What is heart block ?
Heart block is an abnormal heart rhythm where the heart beats too slowly (bradycardia). In this condition, the electrical signals that tell the heart to contract are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and the lower chambers (ventricles).

I am feeling tired everyday my doctor say that is because my blood pressure is low 100/80 and my body is weak he said to me that I need to drink juce and eat food. Is 100/80 is too low BP? I worry that why my BP is low.

CLINICAL CARDIOLOGY, MD - Consultant Physician

Hi. Blood pressure of 120/80 mm hg is considered normal. Anything less than that is considered optimal (even better than normal). So you do not have to do anything to increase your bp. Drink lot of fruit juices, soups etc, eat well so that you do not feel weak. Feeling weak has nothing to do with your bp. Take care.

For hairs you will have to trim them regularly and for different sizes of the breast and nipples we have to see the image so that we will be able to guide you further and we have to rule out gynaecomastia or any lump or lipoma.

Can I know that what is sugar blood pressure and heart attack I can understand this matters please help.
Blood has sugar in it to give us energy to live, if it exceeds certain levels, it is diabetes due to type 1 or type 2. Blood pressure is pressure with which blood runs in blood vessels, if it runs too fast because there are obstructions in vessels or there is a kind of kidney disease present, pressure becomes high and it is called high bp, heart attack is when blood supply to heart muscle is affected due to blockages in its blood vessels, heart tissue gets damaged and it is called heart attack.

Dear I understand, your diabetes is in control now. As regards pain in knee, the causes could be many and it is not correct to advise/ prescribe medication in particular without knowing the exact cause. In the interim however, I would advise you to take rest and not resort to any kind of strenuous and weight bearing physical activities that might exacerbate your pain. For the time being, do not stand or walk for long periods of time. At the same time, do consult a orthopedics doctor to examine and prescribe medications, as appropriate. Hope this helps. You may please connect with me in private for a natural medicine consultation after you have consulted a orthopedics doctor as advised above. I can then integrate & advise suitably so that you have a long lasting relief. All the best. Sincerely

If your father is nearly 7 feet as mentioned above, I will not recommend weight reduction except reduction in salt and sugar which he must have been advised after angioplasty & being diabetic on no sugar. his bp is low. give him more fluids and get checked again. if it is one time reading , do not worry and keep him hydrated by insisting on drinking more water. if bp is constantly lower than 100 , which is highly unlikely but do get checked by your doctor to know the reasons of low bp like low thyroid,anemia.. regarding recent heart attack , do write back about investigations done and numbers of blocks. angioplasty has been done for 1 or more blocks ? aftercare for angioplasty is routine prevention of a heart attack like eating right,moderate exercise,no smoking and no negative stress.
