Hello, Diabetes is a metabolic problem which can lead to other minor/major complications. You have not mentioned your cholesterol values so that I can recommend you to visit a physician who can prescribe you cholesterol lowering medicines. Ideally unless the values, are really high it can be really managed well without medications. All you need to correct is your lifestyle and eating habits.

How To Live After A Heart Attack

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
How To Live After A Heart Attack

A heart attack makes you rethink and get a double take on life. Once you survive it, you tend to realize how close your brush with death has been and how important your lifestyle choices can be. Most people go on to live a productive life after a heart attack provided they can adhere to making healthy choices. Here's what you can do if you have experienced your first attack and want to change for the better:

  1. Start at the hospital: A person usually stays in the hospital for 3 days after an attack to monitor their condition. This duration increases if you have complications that involve procedures like a bypass surgery. Your first significant change will come in the form of your medication routine. Your existing dosage may be adjusted and you'll possibly be prescribed newer medicines that will treat and control your symptoms. You'll not only need to know the names of all your medicines, but when you have to take them. It's best you know exactly why you are taking each one of them, if there are other more economic alternatives since this may last a lifetime and what side effects they may have.
  2. Maintaining your mental health: Once bitten, twice shy applies for heart attack victims too. Not only do they live in a constant worry about another attack, every small symptom like a harmless muscle pull can trigger the fear factor. You also get into the "heart patient" dependent mode based on how much help you need to recover. Check for support groups and other heart attack survivors in your locality to see how they are coping. Read more about your recovery and try to keep a positive frame of mind.
  3. Go to a cardiac rehab: Many hospitals have a rehabilitation program that you can participate in as an outpatient or you can go to a clinic that specializes in it. Such programs help speed up your recovery. It is run by people who will hand hold you in bringing positive changes in your life to protect and strengthen your heart. You'll learn activities that positively improve heart functions and reduce your chances of developing complications or dying from heart disease. You'll also get benefit from exercises that'll be taught by a certified exercise specialist.
  4. Make a change in your lifestyle: Quit smoking that is an obvious one. You'll now have to lead a more active lifestyle with daily exercise. You'll also need to actively manage your diabetes and obesity. None of these changes can happen in a day. In fact, behavioral scientists suggest that you need to practice a new activity continuously for twenty one days for it to become a habit.

What is the main reason for sun stroke and how can we prevent this and what is the cure if affected.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
1. Stay out from direct heat of sun. 2. Avoid going out at the hottest part of the day. 3. Get acclimated - if you want to spend a lot of time outside in the heat, or if you have to work outside in the heat, get yourself acclimated to the weather first. Start out with small shifts in the heat, building up your resistance to the elevated temperature that you are not used to. As you get used to it, you can start spending more and more time outside, but always remember to take breaks from the heat to give your body a break.

Get investigation done for blockages in heart by angiography or cardiac ct scan and get him treated for blockages as there can be blockages in the brain too, causes of heart attack and stroke are same, reason for blackouts and fainting attacks. Get her checked and follow advice of your doctor.

Please make it a habit to go trekking or start a sport that required exertion. Sweating and being in the out doors will help you divert your mind from such thoughts and actions since they are not healthy and may badly affect you health in the future. Begin to meditate, it will strengthen your mind to be used in more useful matters.

Your BP is normal. You can stop BP medicine for sometime and monitor your BP. If BP is raised you have to continue medicine throughout but can reduce the dose after consulting doctor.

With proper diet and yoga you can decrease your weight and cholesterol level. With yoga you can control on your hypertention too. Here are some diet tips 1. Eat high fibre food avoids eating food in simple sugar form 2. Eat fresh fruits instead of fruit juices. Fruits are good source of fibre except banana mango, chiku. 3. Try to avoid deep fried food and oil containing food. Control your fat consumption in your routine diet 4. Avoid bakery products, sweets. 5. Have plenty of water at least 3 lt/day 6. At least half hour walk/day. All are common things but for definite result you need individual diet and exercise schedule.

IF YOU BP IS VERY HIGH LIKE MORE THAN 160/100 WITH ANTI HYPERTENSIVE MEDICINES, IT IS ADVISABLE TO CONTROL YOUR BP FIRST THROUGH LIFESTYLE CHANGES. TILL THEN AVOID STRENUOUS EXERCISES. ITS OK TO YOGA AND LOW INTENSITY CARDIO, BUT NOT HEAVY WEIGHTS. IN HOMEOPATHY WE MANAGE BP WITH MEDICINES WHICH ARE FREE OF SIDE EFFECTS AND TARGETED TO TREAT THE ROOT CAUSE. IN EXTREME CASES, BAD EFFECTS OF HIGH BP MAY INCLUDE CARDIAC ARREST OR STROKE. ALL THE BEST

Dear, You have a poor digestive system and possibly gas. Make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruits, cucumber, salads. These are alkaline in nature and will help you balance the acids in your body. Also, make sure you keep a proper gap between you meals and sleep time and drink lots of hot water before your meal and before sleeping. Do take adequate volumes of dahi and stop eating non-veg and spices till your system stabilizes. Regards.

Is olive oil is better than mustard oil & sunflower oil for high cholesterol level in blood?

Is olive oil is better than mustard oil & sunflower oil for high cholesterol level in blood?
Yes olive oil is a better option. But olive oil is beneficial only if we used it without coocking. Because at high temperature olive oil loses its goodnes properties. So you can apply it on fried food.
