Dear doctor,
Please just make me understand that, is there any good cholesterol or bad cholesterol.
Yeah there is good cholesterol called high density choleterol or hdl and bad cholesterol called low density cholesterol. Low density cholesterol is bad for health and it may cause blood vessel clogging leading to thrombus formation and heart attacks. So it should be kept below 130 and high density cholesterol is good if it go high above 40. Total cholesterol should be kept below 200 and it can come up to 250 which is border line. You can reduce cholesterol with exercising your body and mind with yoga, pranayam etc. You can practice healthy life style with eating fibrous food, raw vegetables, fruits etc. Avoid fatty and fried food especially junk food and soft drinks.

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 mother is suffering from sugar and blood pressure problems please advice me what to do to cure this problem?
Mr Vipul, Diabetes mellitus and hypertension both conditions can only be controlled by appropriate treatment with drugs, die,t exercise.and weight control. There is no cure for these conditions.Treatment has to be for life time. Drug selection and dosage will depend on individual patient, sugar and BP level. Similarly dietary advise also has to be very specific and induvidualised. So you may come in a private conversation with all the details like fasating and Pp sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP reading, dietary pattern, weight and height. There I will be able to give specific advice .

My Father is suffering from Brain stroke with right partially paralysed since 2009, under allopathic medication for BP and sugar. Has third stage Prostate, last month he suffered a fall resulting in intertrochantric fracture and dislocation,Allopathic Doc have opined that surgery is not safe in his case . Is there any other treatment for him?
