When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing your salt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such as bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

Dear Doctor, I had written to you earlier regarding me taking Gluconorm SR for my high Blood/Sugar level. My last two recent readings are 123/177 and 128/203.My doctor had earlier recommended me taking Glucorm after breakfast. Do you think that I should increase the frequency of taking this medicine. I also want to know, when is the best time to Take Glucorm. Should it be after or before meals.

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
An increase in the dose of Gluconorm is probably required provided you have been taking care of your diet and exercise. A good way to see if your DM is under control is to do the HBA1C level. Gluconorm can be taken after food.

I am 47 years female with diabetes, hypertension and hypothyroidism. Have been taking medicines and vitamin/iron supplements for deficiencies. Now I have a question regarding a particular diet. LCHF-Low carbohydrate high fat diet is very popular for diabetics where they adopt 20% carb/20%protein/60% fat since we all diabetics have problem of carbohydrates metabolism. I wish to ask whether 20% carb intake is enough for normal functioning of body? Due to ketosis and ketogenic effect, where body uses ketone instead of glucose in absence of glucose availability due to low carbs, can such diet work long time and effective in lowering blood sugar levels? I have seen people adopting such diets and either use minimal drugs or even without medicines they manage their diabetes with this kind of low carb diet. Pl tell me how to go about it if I wish to manage my diabetes with the help of low or moderate carbs plus how many calories total I should take in a day as a women and with all these medical conditions with an almost sedentary lifestyle. What percentage of carbs intake is an ideal to follow for a diabetic with hypothyroidism if we take 1600 calorie diet? I read that too low carb intake can again damage thyroid.

Being a person who manages dozens of different varieties of diabetics daily, I don't believe in such fads. I believe a diabetic should have a sensible diet, regular & moderate exercise, relaxed, stressfree lifestyle, good quality sleep and abstain from tobacco (if possible, from alcohol too). All these "percentage diets" are useless.

Dear lybrateuser, -your tiredness & breathlessness are due to your weight & sedentary life if you are not exercising regularly -to reduce weight eat more of fibrous foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, wholegrains, sprouts, legumes, pulses, restrict dairy products, non-veg, fried, processed & junk food -do regular exercise like brisk walking, jogging, start slowly & increase time by 10-15 min every week along with the pace, if you feel tired then take a break & again start, do mild weight lifting as it provides exercise to the heart & helps it to pump blood more efficiently into the body, do it in a gym under a trainers guidance -do deep breathing exercise & yoga 10-15 min daily in the morning -get investigations, blood cbc, for sugar, cholesterol, ecg, & consult a doctor with results. -

Having low cholesterol is a sign that your arteries are healthy. However, atherosclerosis, the buildup of cholesterol on the walls of arteries, happens naturally throughout a lifetime. Ways to reduce the speed of buildup is to reduce overall saturated fat intake. Saturated fats have been shown to increase LDL (low density lipoprotein) levels, whose function is to carry fats and cholesterols through the blood vessels. This is necessary because fats and cholesterol are lipids, and cannot dissolve freely in water, or in this case, blood. During times of stress, the cholesterol becomes sticky due to cortisol and sticks to walls of arteries, over time, this buildup can clog arteries. (this is one reason stress is affiliated with poor cardiovascular health). In contrast, regular exercise and a healthy diet have been shown to increase HDL (high density lipoprotein) levels. Their function is to clean cholesterol from arteries for various uses, such as producing bile in the liver. So to sum it all up, having good cholesterol levels ie. high HDL to LDL ratio, is a good indicator that your arteries are in good condition, however it can't tell you for certain that there isn't some atherosclerosis taking place.

If you think that you are having a heart attack - taking an aspirin will protect you but not cure you. For cure of a heart attack and also for saving the life of someone with a heart attack - an emergency thrombolysis or angioplasty is essential. Taking an aspirin for a patient with a heart attack is protective and for a person without heart attack, it is not harmful! Hence, take an aspirin but don't become complacent by taking it!

Dear lybrate user. Your symptoms are suggestive of you being in major depression. A person when in major depression has low neurotransmitters like serotonin in brain and thus is very difficult for him to motivate himself. He has a negative attribution style for almost everything around him which is similar to what you are having and yes you seem to have other risk factors of being unmarried and jobless. Lack of confidence and interest are further hurdels to motivate self for social interactions. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and get started on medications as soon as possible. Gradually over time cbt and other life changes may be brought about. With medications you will start feeling better by say 10 to 15 days from the start. I hope you take the step in right directions and get better soon. Take care.

Stroke is NOT a Heart Attack! + 5 Other Stroke MYTHS busted!

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Stroke is NOT a Heart Attack! + 5 Other Stroke MYTHS busted!

6 Myths on STROKE, busted!

Stroke affects the arteries that lead to the brain. This serious, life-threatening condition happens when blood supply to a part of the brain gets cut off.

Many myths surround this medical condition :

Myth 1: Only older people suffer from strokes


This isn't true - young people can experience strokes as well. About a quarter of stroke cases are reported by people aged 65 and below. More importantly, irrespective of the age group, the warning signs are the same; it is only in response that differences can be found between younger and older people.

Myth 2: Women don't suffer from strokes

The opposite is true. It is women who suffer strokes more often than men. This is because women tend to live longer than men whose longevity gets affected by heart disease. Since they live longer than men, they tend to be more vulnerable to strokes.

Myth 3: Strokes can't be prevented

Through changes in your lifestyle, strokes can easily be prevented. You can reduce your chances of getting a stroke by having a balanced diet, exercising, keeping an optimum body weight and limiting alcohol consumption as well as quitting smoking. Moreover, up to 80% stroke cases can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.

Myth 4: Strokes aren't easy to recognise

Strokes can be easily diagnosed through the Face, Arm, Speech and Time test (FAST). If you suffer from slurred speech, facial droop or numbness on one side of the body, you're said to suffer from a stroke.

Myth 5: Strokes are similar to one another

This is another misconception about stroke. No two strokes are the same. While certain strokes happen when blood flow to the brain gets interrupted, there are others that take place when blood vessels in the brain get ruptured. Recovery depends on the extent of damage, the type of stroke and your health condition before the occurrence.

Myth 6: Strokes are a form of heart attack

Although strokes and heart attacks are closely related, they are not the same. In strokes, blood supply to the brain gets interrupted; on the other hand, in heart attacks, blood supply to the heart gets severely affected.

Multivessel Stenting Vs Bypass Surgery - Which is Better?

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Multivessel Stenting Vs Bypass Surgery - Which is Better?

The results of a study conducted by the Department of Medicine, University of Ulsan, Korea, show that multivessel coronary stenting can be performed with a high success rate along with an acceptable clinical outcome. Coronary stenting has proven itself to be an accepted means for treating of obstructed coronary arteries. The need for multivessel coronary stenting has been inflated because of the larger number of patients with unfavourable cardiac profiles. Conventionally, bypass surgery is regarded as a standard means for relieving angina in cardiac patients with multivessel coronary disease as it could lead to a downright revascularization. Further, it also allows a prolongation of lifespan in a specified subgroup of patients.

How are they performed: Despite the coming of modern generation of stents, patients with multiple stringent arteries in the heart receiving coronary after bypass have recovered better than those whose arteries were grafted with balloon angioplasty or stenting. This report is presented in the 64th Annual Scientific Session in the American College of Cardiology. This report echoes past studies which shows that patients afflicted with multiple narrowed arteries receive better results with coronary artery bypass grafting, which is also known as CABG or bypass heart surgery. In case of multivessel stenting, which is known as angioplasty or percutaneous coronary intervention or PCI, a stent is put within the arteries to hold it wide open and facilitate the flow of blood.

Which one is better: In a new study, it is reported that patients with new stents are susceptible to 47% higher risk of any of the outcomes like death or cardiac arrest as compared to patients who undergo bypass surgery. In CABG, a vein or artery from other parts of the body is grafted on the constricted coronary artery for allowing easy blood flow to and from heart. This study reinforces present regulations that recommend CABG to treat patients with substantial constrictions in various arteries, a condition often termed as multivessel coronary artery ailment.

Renowned cardiologist Seung Jung Park from Asan Medical Centre in Seoul, South Korea opines that CABG is still a much preferred option on the basis of their medical data. Another study known as Bypass Surgery Versus Everolimus - Eluting Stent Implantation for Multivessel Coronary Artery Disease or BEST trial deserves mention. It is one of the two randomly controlled trials for comparing bypass to angioplasty since the introduction of modernised stents that emits medication, which would prevent blood clot.

This study was implemented on 880 patients at 27 healthcare centres in four countries. Each patient had multivessel coronary artery disease and were determined to be equally eligible to go through either of the methods. Half of these patients were randomly chosen to be given angioplasty with everolimus-eluting stents, and the other half received bypass surgery.

All the patients were tracked for about five years and during this prolonged follow up, angioplasty was related to a considerable upsurge in the incidence of myocardial infarction, target vessel revascularization and often death. Because, it is a more invasive process, bypass surgery is normally recommended only for patients afflicted with higher-risk constrictions in more than one artery.

If you are one of these patients and this concern plagues you, it is recommended to talk to a cardiologist without much delay.
