Keep Blood Sugar & Lipids under control, avoid bad fats but do take good fats like 5 gms of desighee/ butter + a katori of any types of nuts everyday. Moderate exercise, avoid smoke and pollution,no anger but only healthy stress as fruitful activities with positive results do boost health of heart and negative feelings ruin entire body including heart.Take medicines as suggested by doctor. Sometimes people have been Able to Reverse Heart disease due to their own enlightenment and will power.

No pacemaker will not give shock if you mean and it only gives impulses for the heart to beat properly.

its a worrying situation you are into. But its quite manageable too. If you cud give some more details like ggtp and or supporting endoscopic report it would be more beneficial. The liver enzymes are a bit high. But you should also take a look at resting metabolism. If you think I can help consult me in person.

Hello , heart attack is an acute medical conditiontion so call medical emergency helpline first or call ambulance, first aid is come in a open air and keep taking long breath, take rest, if you have your chest pain medication like nitroglycerin so take it first. Do not take anything despite your medication or water.

Hye. Food planning will depend on the amount of proteins that you need for the day. To decide the proteins, other nutrients many parameters need to be considered. This requires personalised planning. You don't want to end up eating low amounts of protein too. Cornflakes is not low protein, neither is it low sodium or potassium as well. You might want to skip packaged foods.

I do not want to interfere in treatment but incidence of drug resistant TB is quite common in our country. I treat my patients by giving AKT4 for 2 months after doing Liver function tests (repeat after a month) AKT3 for 6 more months. I explain them to take liver friendly diet like it is given for Jaundice , lots of carbs + proteins like toned milk & milk products ,eggs but No heavy Non veg or other heavy foods. Total rest. No need to Isolate if it is Not an open case. Keep the person busy by teaching some crafts ,like knitting & embroidery for women but No exposure to kitchen heat/ sun. This is general rule for all , total cost comes to less than 1000/- yes one thousand only including tests. Why should a worker of my area travel to DOTS center? You have done the right thing for getting investigated and following the treatment so far. Talk to your doctors about your problem and do let us know.Lymph nodes in abdominal TB have also vanished after a month in one of our cases. In your case ,there is minimal fluid which does not need aspiration and removal,it will clear away and so will the other lymph nodes. After complete course of treatment for TB or during treatment ,some white shadows are seen ,may be these are healed patches but we have to go by totality 1) ESR coming down 2) no fever 3) appetite better 4) weight gain 5) improvement in general condition.

No it is not ! Had it been atrial fibrillations, you would not have been in a position to write to us after so many hours. Get checked for heart anyway.

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 .

My heart beats v v fast I do no reason can any one say me whether any prob in it r not.
Dear Lybrate user: heart palpitation is the sensation that your heart has skipped a beat or added an extra beat. It may feel like your heart is racing, pounding, or fluttering. You may become overly aware of your heartbeat. This sensation is sometimes also felt in the neck, throat, or chest. While you’re experiencing palpitations, your heart rhythm may or may not be abnormal. Most heart palpitations are harmless and resolve on their own without treatment. Rarely, heart palpitations can indicate a serious condition. Seek medical attention right away if you have heart palpitations and a diagnosed heart problem or if you have palpitations that occur with other symptoms such as: dizziness lightheadedness fainting a loss of consciousness confusion difficulty breathing excessive sweating pain, pressure, or tightening in your chest pain in your arms, neck, chest, jaw, or upper back a resting pulse rate of more than 100 beats per minute.
