Hi, r you taking any medicine for hypertension under supervision of a physician? avoid, junk food, fried, spicy, irritant junk food, this will raise the cholesterol level to raise bp level. Go for a brisk walk in d morning. Go for meditation to calm down your stress level to ease bp. Take balanced, simple, easily digestible diet on time, maintaining calorie value from 1300-1600. Homoeo medicine: @ rauwalfiaq 10 drops, thrice with little water. @ arjuna q10 drops, thrice with little water. All d best.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your chest & shoulder pain could be due to muscular or bony problem - give rest to the part, do not bend, lift weight or do exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation twice a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - if still pain is there take a pain relief tab after meals - do an x- ray chest & consult a doctor.

Dear, your hypertension and diabetes need to be treated by a physician whom you should meet in person, regularly check your bp and blood glucose level and get medicine from him. Please understand, these are life style diseases. You should change the way you love. Life style changes, behavior modification and exercise should provide you good relief even from anxiety. Anxiety is fear about unknown happening or fear about future. Anxiety about things which we do not know or anxiety about things we are not experienced are common. Please tell me what makes you anxious? past? present? future? career? economic status? health matters? anything else? let me know. Take care?

I am 70 a male, BP controlled by medicine for past 12 years at 130/80, non diabetic generally in good health with regular exercise of walking and yoga breathing regulated diet wrt sugar, fat and salt intake. Recently I had a bout of pain in back of neck possibly due to muscle pull while doing shoulder stretching exercise. Over days the pain has shifted to back of shoulder (only right shoulder) However I find that the pain seems to grip external throat area lasting for a couple of hours once or twice a day. Could this pain be due to vascular insufficiency or a cardiac forewarning?

It will help to do an 2D Echo to study heart functioning. When muscular, as per ayurveda and holistic medicine, it is aggravated by Vaata dosha. So if you can remove vaata from the body by simple home remedies, for example 1 big spoon castor oil to flush out vaata, it may rid the problem. Also, keep your back, neck and chest warm with a scarf, it will hep reduce the pain. Do massage area with mustard oil and definitely reduce the intensity of your exercises of back, shoulder and neck till your muscles heal. Pranayam, ie, sookshma, anulom-vilom is very good for you It is gentle and will balance various elements in your body.

We can not decide bp for checking one time, because of your work pressure you may get some time like that but even though you are pre hypertensive patient you may get bp if you do neglect, to prevent that reduce the salt in your diet and daily walking and yoga must.

His cholesterol and triglycerides levels are pretty high. It could be familial, hopefully he doesn't drink much and smoke. Since you are already taking dietary precautions, he should be started on medications and daily exercise. The levels need to be repeated after 4 weeks to see response.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the various things you have mentioned are some what inter related but everything can not be predicted as you may be thinking. Various things can cause problem with heart. High cholesterol can cause blocks in the coronary artery which can lead to angina or later myocardial infarction (heart attack). High blood pressure puts extra work load on the heart. Diabetes does affect large blood vessels (coronary artery) and also aids dyslipidemia. Tests like echocardiogram and angiography do help in identifying possible causes leading to heart attacks.

Emphysema - Know The Life Expectancy and Stages!

Emphysema - Know The Life Expectancy and Stages!

If you are facing difficulties in breathing, especially in the process of exhaling, you are suffering from emphysema. Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs of the lungs are damaged and enlarged, causing breathlessness. It occurs as a result of several triggers, smoking being the most common one. Emphysema is a type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. People with this condition struggle to exhale, which implies that there is some obstruction in the air flow. This disease has no permanent cure but by quitting smoking, you can stop it from getting worse.

Stages
The progression and severity of emphysema occurs with the staging systems. The staging of the condition can help in developing a prognosis.

The Gold emphysema staging system
Gold is a major emphysema staging system created by a group known as the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease. The amount of air a patient can exhale forcefully in one second is determined during this stage. It is also referred to as the forced expiratory volume or FEV1.

The staging is as follows:

  • Stage 1: Mild emphysema (FEV1 greater than 80% of normal)
  • Stage 2: Moderate emphysema (FEV less than 80%, but more than 50% normal)
  • Stage 3: Severe emphysema (FEV lesser than 50%, but more than 30% normal)
  • Stage 4: Extremely severe emphysema. (FEV lesser than 30% of normal or lesser than 50% normal, with low levels of oxygen in the blood.

The BODE emphysema staging system
The condition affects several abilities. The BODE index, an acronym for BMI (body mass index), obstruction, dyspnea (breathlessness), exercise capacity (health index) is another staging system for emphysema in which the emphysema’s impact on several areas of life are measured. They include the following:

  1. Body mass index (B)
  2. Airflow limitation or obstruction (O), which is measured by pulmonary function tests
  3. Breathless or dyspnea (D), which is assessed thoroughly via a questionnaire
  4. Exercise capacity (E), which is measured to check how long a person with emphysema can walk in a span of six minutes

Life expectancy
The prognosis of emphysema is impossible to be determined in any person individually. The staging system helps to identify the severity of the condition, but the future cannot be predicted. Not many studies have been undertaken for the determination of the effects of emphysema on life expectancy. The best research that has been carried out included around 100 people, which is very less. The condition varies largely among people, even if they are in the same stage.

The statistics available on emphysema are not reliable enough for individuals who wish to know their life expectancy. It is considered that if a patient falls in a higher stage, his/her long-term life expectancy is less. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.

I am suffering from chest pain usually from left side of my chest. When I breath in I feel relaxed and when I breath out I feel pained.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi

Chest pain whether, right or left sided, especially when it is associated with chest or arm movement and when it is increased with breathing is rarely due to heart disease. The chest heaviness which makes you breathless is due to heart but the chest pain that builds on due to breathing is due lungs. Being breathless is like being suffocated but it doesn't pain on breathing. The description that you are providing point towards lung pathology and hence it is advisable to first get a chest x ray done. It could be a minor infection of the lung or something serious. But either ways, you need to know more by a x ray.
