Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Chest pain is due to anxiety. You can be health conscious. But you should not think about your heart health always and be apprehensive. This leads to obsession, obsession leads to chest pain, pain leads to anxiety, anxiety leads to acidity and hyperventilation and this leads to chest pain, anxiety etc. These are cyclical and one leads to another. I suggest counselling and cognitive behavior therapy as a cure. Take care.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Medicine will depend upon fbs and ppbs. Your ppbs is high, so I will recommend to make changes in your meals and to go for a walk post meal. And if still your ppbs remains high than you should consult the doctor.

Dear lybrate-user, if there is ongoing chest pain after heart attack, patient must be admitted in ccu and should be prepared for early angiography and revascularization in the form of angioplasty or surgery. It is of utmost importance to prevent further heart attack, which can be fatal and also to salvage some of the heart muscle.

Mr. C lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 30.06 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). That itself is a major contributor for increased blood glucose and and hypertension. At your age HbA1c% should be ideally <6.8. Diabetes is a life long remaining condition, there is no cure. It can only be controlled by appropriate medication, diet control and regular exercise and weight reduction. Thanks.

The cholesterol levels are deranged. As first line, you need to attempt diet change and exercise, if even after 6-8 weeks of these precautions, he may require treatment. Daily 40 mins of brisk walking for exercise. Quit smoking and drinking (if he does). Ask for a detailed dietary consult from a dietician. Get his blood sugar and TSH tested. Follow up with a General physician or cardiologist after 6 weeks with lipid profile report.

Vitamin b 12 and d deficiencies do not have any effect on day to day activites and pain associated with it. The deficiencies are rare and are not a cause of worry. Your gastric pain and pain in heel seem to be unconnected. Gastric pain could be peptic in origin and your family doctor can treat it without much investigations. Pain in heel needs a closer look. It may require an orthopaedic consultancy, but let it be decided by your family doctor. So see a physician.
