Hi, ecg and tmt are advised to rule out any ischaemic disorder. If it is positive, then you can consult a cardiologist with the reports who will perform an angiogram to know the exact site and severity of the ischaemic disorder. If your ecg is normal, then there is no problem with the blood supply.

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.

My friends mother died recently. It all started early in the morning. She forgot to take her high BP tablet the night before. Early morning she started vomiting with severe headache, nausea and her lower body below vest was sort of paralysed. My friend gave her two 25 mg tablets Enam-25 and she was rushed to the nearby hospital. There ECG did not show any heart attack. Later they checked sugar, electrolyte, lipid profile. All reports were normal. An echo test was done showing normal valve functioning but 40% LV diastolic contraction. The heart specialist said it's with in the normal range but suggested that treatment be started. She was injected and a tablet was given. After taking tablet she vomited and then collapsed. Nothing worked out and she was declared dead. Now my friend is worried that was it a mistake to give two 25 mg tablets to control BP? Did that dose mislead the heart specialist? The doctors were informed that she had been given two tablets. Was one tablet enough and would that have given true information in echo test or ECG? Could anybody explain. Please tell.

Two tablets of enam 25 (enalapril) would not cause death of a patient- moreover, your friend's mother wasn't told to have low blood pressure when she reached the hospital. The sudden collapse that you have detailed was perhaps an episode of arrhythmia (irregular heart rate) - which causes sudden cardiac deaths. Its very difficult to come to terms with such a tragedy in life - but I can tell you only one thing out of my own experience - its never anybody's fault! she was in the hospital and still she died - make your friend accept this.

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.

Lower cholesterol without drugs,,,

Lower cholesterol without drugs,,,
10 ways to Lower Cholesterol without Drugs

Studies suggest that cholesterol problems can be addressed with simple dietary changes. And aerobic exercises further enhance the cholesterol lowering effects of a healthy diet.

Here are some quick tips to lower cholesterol without drugs :

1 . Say no to trans fats

Food manufacturers use trans fats because they extend the shelf life of packaged baked goods. They raise LDL (bad cholesterol), lower HDL (good cholesterol), and increase risk of developing heart disease and stroke. They’re found in fried foods, baked goods (cakes, pie crusts, frozen pizza, and cookies). Follow this rule: choose fats and oils with 2 grams or less saturated fat per tablespoon.

2 . Switch to olive oil

Substituting olive oil for ghee or butter may reduce LDL cholesterol by as much as 15%, which is similar to the effect of a low dose of medication The “good” fats in olive oil benefit your heart. Choose extra-virgin olive oil.

3 . Add lots of fiber to your diet

Research suggests that increasing soluble fiber intake by 5 to 10 grams each day may result in a 5% drop in LDL cholesterol. Foods like oatmeal, apples, prunes, and beans are high in soluble fiber, which keeps your body from absorbing cholesterol.

4 . Choose colorful fruits and veggies

Fruits and vegetables are loaded with ingredients that lower cholesterol—including fiber, cholesterol-blocking molecules called sterols and stanols, and eye-appealing pigments. These include leafy greens, yellow squashes, carrots, tomatoes, strawberries, plums, blueberries.

5 . Add spices to your cooking

Spices like garlic, curcumin, ginger, black pepper, coriander, and cinnamon can improve cholesterol. Research shows that eating half to one clove of garlic each day could lower cholesterol up to 9%. Find more cholesterol reducing foods here.

6 . Lose those extra kilos

If you’re overweight, drop of just 4-5 Kg will reduce your LDL by up to 8%. Having 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day (for women) and 1200-1600 calories/day (for men) will help in losing weight safely.

7 . Exercise regularly

Exercising at least 2 1/2 hours a week (around 20 minutes per day) is enough to raise HDL (good cholesterol) and improve LDL and triglycerides. Start with a 20 minute brisk walk daily!

8 . Have a handful of nuts

Almonds and walnuts contain sterols, which, like fiber, keep the body from absorbing cholesterol. Go for unsalted ones and keep the quantity in check.

9 . Quit smoking

Smoking can raise LDL and lower HDL, and quitting often improves those numbers. Breathing secondhand smoke every day can also raise levels of bad cholesterol.

10 . Stay happy

Studies suggest that when you are stressed, your cholesterol levels rise in the body. Engage in hobby like gardening, join a book club or try meditation or yoga classes to keep your spirits high.

Hi it is most likely because of overdose of medicine overdose of anti diabetic medicines causes hypoglycemia. Sensation of an abnormal heartbeat, increased heart rate and sleeplessness are symptoms of hypoglycemia. Doses of anti hypertensive medicines are adjusted according to your fasting and pp blood sugar levels of patient So a review of your fasting and pp blood sugars are essential before decreasing the doses.
