Control your diet and excessive statins can cause increase in OT/PT levels instead try Allium Sat Q 5-7 drops twice a day (Homeopathic)

My father had a CABG on Mar 28, 2016. After keeping him in CTVS followed by HDU for 4 days doctors shifted him to his general ward. Since Mar 31, 2016 he was complaining that he was not able to remember anything. He forgot names of every family member and friends except one or two people who are not extremely close. He even forgot his own name as well. Doctors found yesterday that he got a blood clot in his left tempro -parietal lobe of the brain which had caused a stroke. This was definitely post CABG because before am operation too he had a CT scan where no such clot was evident. Now the doctors have given him the following medicines: Atova 20mg, diplate A-120, cetil 500mg, paracetamol, ditallox 12.5mg, insulin 6 units in morning, 8 units in afternoon and 6 units in the night. My father already had a mild stroke before in August 2012; that time his homocysteine level in sera was found to be 114 for which the doctor gave folic acid tablets as medicine. Rest a Carotid Doppler found minor plaques. Rest all tests were good. Now in this condition I am almost clueless what to do next? Please help.

It is not even 1 month when your father had a cabg. He has a history of a mild stroke in past and causes of stroke and heart attack are same, so is the prevention after a warning in the form of anginal pain or a mini stroke, he is a diabetic too, controlled on insulin. Sometimes medicines belonging to opiate group are given post operatively for bone pain, this does affect the memory and it is a temporary change, doctors shift to other pain killers like it has been the case - he is being given paracetamol, statins to bring down bad cholesterol that causes plaque. Carotid doppler has shown minor plaques which is expected because he had blockages which caused heart attack and stroke. May be your doctors will give medicines to dissolve clots in the brain. Continue the treatment as suggested by your doctors, remember it takes minimum 2 months for innermost tissues to recover, outwardly the stitches may look clear and normal, you need to have patience and help him recover. Good luck.

Dear lybrate-user, You need to take a break from these supplements and switch to high nutritional value natural foods. Some treatment/medication to bring cholesterol may be needed (count not known) before you rely on natural foods to keep that under check. Stress (of food and work equally) can cause oxidative free radical increase that causes fatigue. This can be treated once counts are known. Regards.

First of all you need to check your blood cholesterol level, if it's within nrml range then no dietery restrictions. Try to find out why your depressed? Find it out n try to find a way to get rid of that situation. U need to be a stressfree person. Though no person is perfectly stress free bt you have to cope up with this situation. Avoid extra salt .meditate everyday. Walk briskly for 45 min daily. And with this you need proper homeopathic treatment to be cure. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate.

My Cardiologist has advised not to take any greasy, oily stuff in the food, but you advise the other way for the Ghee. I have two stents installed in my arteries and doing pretty well. I am overwhelmed with bewilderment and stunned. Do you have clinical proofs to assert your observations? Like researcher. Have found out etc etc or as Several researches indicate that these fatty acids have the ability to burn calories and bringing about weight loss. While decreasing hunger, they are also responsible for oxidation of fats that get accumulated in your body.

Dear Much of the research quoted by our specialist is done in the West where fat in food indicates non Veg fat. Veg oils, seed oils do not have cholesterol like non Veg fats. This is the basic mistake in translating the research done. Cow ghee is well researched for the health benefits. You will find clinical. And medical research in many websites. Try net search. You will be surprised and happy. Regards.
