Low Vitamin D Linked to Heart Risk
Low blood levels of vitamin D are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke.
The 5-year research with participants in the Framingham Heart Study was published in the journal Circulation. The study, which included 1,739 people, average age 59 years, found that those with the lowest levels of vitamin D had a 62 percent greater risk of a cardiovascular event than those with the next highest levels.
An hour or so of sunlight on the skin each week allows the skin to produce blood levels of about 30 nanograms of vitamin D per liter of blood, more than enough to prevent a deficiency such as rickets.
Food sources of vitamin D include fortified milk and oily fishes such as salmon.
Recommendations from the Institute of Medicine in the United States call for a daily intake of vitamin D ranging from 200 International Units (IU) for young people, to 400 IU for the middle-aged, to 600 IU for older people. But getting that amount from food and sunlight may not be easy. A glass of fortified milk contains only about 100 IU of vitamin D. The suggested recommendation is 1,000 - 2,000 IU.
The cardiovascular risk associated with low vitamin D levels was especially greater for people who also had high blood pressure. Their incidence of cardiovascular events was double that of people with higher blood levels of vitamin D.

Never ignore chest pain. You have to get one ECG done so that you can rule out any heart related problems.

Hi, I am 28 years old getting back and chest pain both together front and back same position. From 3 weeks suggest me what can I do.

Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho)

Hi if you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know in a week time how you are feeling. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine (ap & lateral) and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am feeling pain in the chest central region. Also the pain is there when I am doing my natural work without any extra exertion. Pain is not radiating to back or left hand. Even I am not having feeling to eat. I am having headache also. But my BP is normal. Should I go for ECG or it is due to acidity even I m getting tired by normal walking I think it is anemia.

My Mom suffered a minor Stroke two months back. After that she was treated and as per Doctors advice she is good and fine. Doctors said the main reason was of Hypertension. CT scan test was been done and various tests been done whatever Doctors decided to do. Now the problem is that she feels a kind of heaviness and nerves stretchiness and a bit of pain in her left side till her knee portion. We discuss the matter with the Doctors and they said that it is a stroke effect and it will heal naturally by itself. I approach to Neurologist and discuss the matter and the Neurologist said the same thing as the Doctors said. As per Doctors advice she needs to take B. P medicine and Sugar medicine for life long. Now my question is that it's been a more than two months she had minor stroke but she still feels that kind of heaviness and nerves stretchiness sometimes pain in her left part of her body. Is this true as per Doctors advice she will be fine and it will get healed naturally. Please advice your suggestions to what is next to be done.

Heaviness and nerve stretch in left thigh could be due to sciatica. Patient lie on her back and tell her to lift her right leg up to 90 degree. Then lift her left leg up to 90 degree. In sciatica she will get pain if she lift beyond 45 degree. While standing straight normal person can bend forward and touch her own toes with her fingers. In sciatica she may not be able to touch her toes. Hard bed (with cushion), hot fomentation of lower back may help. Patient lie on her abdomen. Flex (bend) legs to touch thigh may help. Get it confirmed by surgeon and take medication as per his advice.

unless the pain is on the left side then it will not be related to your BP. only if its on the left side then the high BP can affect your heart and in turn cause pain on the left side. if you have any numbness or weakness in the upper limb then it could be due to neck (spine ).
