Can angioplasty operated person go for a various types of raw vegetable juice fetch from juicer?
Sure, may be taken, but vegetable juice is mostly water and salts. It will not provide energy or protein.

Palpitations are common in females as you are 40 year age, you need to undergo investigations like echo, ecg etc and meet a general physician. If every test comes normal, it can be due to gastritis gas acidity and indigestion for that you have to decrease weight and take antacids.

Your doctor is right, get angiogram to rule out blockages in blood vessels supplying blood to heart muscles.

Hi, Yes, taking 1 clove of garlic daily controls your bad cholesterol. Soak 1 clove of garlic overnight, have it after breakfast (discard the water in which it was soaked). You can have it for 2 weeks first, get your cholesterol checked. Along with this, follow the management part also. High blood cholesterol is treated with lifestyle changes and medicines. There are few risk factors: Cigarette smoking High blood pressure (140/90 mmHg or higher), or you’re on medicine to treat high blood pressure Low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (less than 40 mg/dL) Family history of early heart disease (heart disease in father or brother before age 55; heart disease in mother or sister before age 65) Age (men 45 years or older; women 55 years or older) Food to be avoided: -Saturated fat which is found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods. -You also should try to limit the amount of sodium (salt) that you eat. -Try to limit drinks with alcohol. Too much alcohol will raise your blood pressure and triglyceride level. Food to be taken: -Whole-grain cereals such as oatmeal and oat bran -Fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, pears, and prunes -Legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, chick peas, black-eyed peas, and lima beans -A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can increase important cholesterol-lowering compounds in your diet. -A healthy diet also includes some types of fish, such as salmon, tuna (canned or fresh), and mackerel. These fish are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids may help protect the heart from blood clots and inflammation and reduce the risk of heart attack. Try to have about two fish meals every week. If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can help lower LDL cholesterol. Routine physical activity can lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and raise your HDL cholesterol level.

Please have patience and continue with the treatment as advised by the doctor. Make sure that you go for regular check up (check thyroid levels every 2-3 months till it is stabilized ). Let her eat only freshly prepared homemade food every day. Avoid readymade food/ juices etc. Take the help of a nutritionist who can prepare a diet chart (a balanced diet) with lesser calories. She can learn Yoga which is safe and effective for any age. There is no need to worry and get streesd out which would only exaggerate the problems.

Raised cholesterol level indicates problem at two levels. First the level of dietary discrepancies’ were the cholesterol is raised because of excess intake of the food which are high in cholesterol, LDL, and low intake of HDL that is good cholesterol. Second problem may be disturbed lipid metabolism were you are eating right quantity of lipids, but the bodily metabolism is disturbed. So finally if you want to cure high cholesterol in the blood you have to approach two way, first by improving your diet, and second by curing the problem of metabolism.

Hello lybrate-user, the x ray report you have mentioned is grossly withen nomral limits and just based on the report attached, I don't forsee anything serious. Now the two most common cause of breathlessness at night is lung related, particularly asthama like or copd if he was a smoker, another is heart related, which should be ruled out if he has similar breathlessness when he is exerting like climbing stairs, lastly get his blood pressure checked ad it might be on the higher side. Do send me more details so I can help narrow down the diagnosis for you. Hoping I could help. Regards
