I feel sad for you, sudden loss of life partner is always more difficult to bear. Hope both of you have fulfilled your duties like education of children ans settled them as individuals, if not you will have to complete this responsibility as a single parent now. Time is a great healer and within 10 months, you must have sorted out the basics like finance and a secure shelter. Time is a great healer, if you have support of your family, you can come out of the shock and start'living' again. If there is no family support, be your own help, keep busy with work, education and skills you have, share with others, besides earning some money, you will develop self confidence plus a will to live. But no drugs or tranquillisers, even for temporary relief to fall asleep. Take care of your basic health by eating healthy, go for long walks as they are the basic exercise cum meditation. Good luck.

Hi Bed is not be used for eating and as a workstation. Bed is for sleeping purpose only. These issues are quite commonly seen with youngsters who are addicted to mobile ,tablet lap top etc. You are getting into problems because of wrong postures and neck flexion and this will cause stiffness of the neck and back. So change your habits and you should be fine. If you want specific advise about diet, nutrition and life style changes take a consultation.

Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol and Factor involved in It

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Good Cholesterol Vs Bad Cholesterol and Factor involved in It

For a long time cholesterol in totality was seen as a bad thing for your body although the truth was a little more complicated than that. Cholesterol primarily is divided into two types, one of which can be categorized as bad cholesterol and the other as good cholesterol. Let's have an in-depth look at both the categories.

LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein aka bad cholesterol: Cholesterol is a wax like chemical, which is found all over the body and it has important functions to perform. Cholesterol is carried all over the body by Lipoproteins. The low density lipoproteins are denoted as bad cholesterol as they can accumulate on the walls of the blood vessels and cause blockages in heart arteries, resulting in many ailments. LDL levels of 190 and above are considered dangerous. 

Some of the risks associated with it are:
1. Heart disease
2. Stroke
3. Atherosclerosis
4. Peripheral artery disease among many others

HDL or High Density Lipoprotein aka good cholesterol: This is a form of cholesterol which is usually desired in higher quantities as it removes LDL from the system by dislodging it from the arteries and then carrying it through the blood stream into the liver. The liver then breaks it down and removes it from the body. Thus, higher number of HDL cholesterol is always desirable. 

Some of the ideal numbers for HDL cholesterol within the body are:

Women - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl or lower
Men - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl lower

The role of triglycerides
Good and bad cholesterol levels also depend on the levels of triglycerides within the body and not just LDL or HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat which are used to store energy within the body but can also affect your health. It is most associated with atherosclerosis when the levels of triglycerides are high within the body. 

Some habits that contribute to high levels of it are:
a. Lack of physical activity
b. Obesity or being overweight
c. Excesses in alcohol consumption
d. Smoking
e. Bad diet and others

Thus the good cholesterol versus bad cholesterol war also includes other factors, most of which can be easily changed by making subtle changes in lifestyle and incorporating healthier habits. This will increase the good cholesterol and the other relevant elements and reduce the bad. You can consult a cardiologist for more details.

Hello, if all ecg, echo and angio are normal nothing extra needs to be done. Continue anti diabetes and anti htn medications. Cardiologist may have given ecospirin and statin to continue. Life style modifications like low oil foods. Use olive oil or canola oil, or safflower oil which have unsaturated fats. Exercise daily 30 min per day. Not to eat pickles and salted foods, decrease non veg, fish can be taken weekly once, decrease amount of salt in diet. Optimisation of ant diabetes and anti htn medications are required.

Hi, considering your age, lower chest pain in most of the times of it is not related to heart disease however you can rule it out by doing an ecg. However it is more often related to gastric ulcer hence starting on antacids would help a lot. Avoid eating spicy foods.

Dear lybrate-user Regulated hydration, drinking adequate water through out the day will help you overcome the uric acid. It will also relieve you of different toxins that will automatically get thrown out of the body. Ideal diets for you conditions will be a healthy portion of alkaline food daily. These include doodhi, red pumpkin, aramenthus leafy veg; pomegranate, pears, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, etc. Low intensity exercises like regular walking for 45 mins are much more useful than sudden bursts on alternate days. Start mindful meditation to calm the mind which will control BP, sugar as well as acidity regards.
