Your BP is high and so also the cholesterol. Hope you are on proper medication. You need to follow up properly. If required you may go for further tests like stress test. Other tests like angiography or digital angiography. It's imperative that you have adapt a very healthy life style. Include yoga in daily life.

Dear lybrate-user, Please do a sugar test. Both per post to check blood sugar, urine test RFT; and Hb1Ac to see long term diabetic tendency. It is possible you need to bring these under control. Your symptoms match the need for these investigations. Regards.

Hi, I have blood pressure (detected 3 years ago), I also have mild chest pain on different side of chest. It comes and goes on its own, at first I panicked assuming it is warning sign of heart attack but it has been 2 years and thankfully nothing bad has been occurred yet, its pain I am still having some time. Should I worry?

Nothing to worry. If pain perssists just get Treadmill Test done. Also you can get a 2D Echocardigram done to rule out any Structural Valve problem. If both the tests are normal nothing to worry. Also exercise to reduce weight ic you have BMI >24. You can have low fat diet and low carb diet. Hope this answers your concern. Have a healthy day.

Healthy Heart: 5 Lifestyle Changes You Need To Know!

Healthy Heart: 5 Lifestyle Changes You Need To Know!

Lifestyle is one of the best defences against heart disease. All you need to do to maintain good heart health is to just make simple but significant changes to your lifestyle. By doing so, you end up minimising the risk factors associated with heart disease such as coronary artery disease.

The lifestyle changes that you must make for a healthy heart are:

1. Be physically active - Research by Harvard University shows that watching television for 2 hours a day can increase your chances of developing heart disease by 15%. But if you exercise or indulge in some kind of physical activity for about 30 minutes every day, you can significantly improve the health of your heart as any kind of physical activity improves your blood circulation as well as blood pressure.

2. Maintain a healthy body weight - Having a low body weight or a high one can also put you at risk of getting heart disease. For a good heart health, you need to protect it from fatigue and damage. By keeping your weight at an optimum level, your blood circulation, as well as body fluids, end up working efficiently, protecting your heart from unnecessary strain.

3. Have a balanced diet - It is important that you eat foods that are high in fiber and nutrients, but low in calories in order to stay healthy. Consumption of high cholesterol foods like processed meats, desserts, etc. often lead to heart problems. But foods like tuna or salmon, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean proteins such as chicken and fish in your diet can reduce your risk of developing heart disease.

4. Manage stress - Stress is another factor that causes you to have poor heart health. To prevent the damaging effect that stress can have on your heart, exercising is what you should do. This is because when you exercise, you release endorphins (brain chemicals that trigger a feel-good feeling in your body), which help in improving your physical and mental makeup. Additionally, exercising has also been found to reduce your chances of dying from a heart attack.

5. Quit smoking - Research reveals that smoking increases your chance of getting heart disease by about 2 - 4 times. As it can damage the lining of the arteries, which leads to build up of atheroma, and narrows the artery. This eventually can lead to heart attack or stroke. Smoking further reduces the level of oxygen in your blood, due the presence of carbon monoxide, that means  your heart has to pump harder to supply the body with the oxygen it needs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

General Physician,
It seems as if you are having allergy. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine we doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are available and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Hope you are helped. Regards.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Also take calcium tablets shelcal 500mg for a limited period 2 months consult after 10 days. Do some breathing exercise-regularly.

Hypoglycemia means "less-than-normal blood sugar level" (ie, less than 70 mg%). All medicines taken for Diabetes can cause hypoglycemia. However, Insulins & certain drugs like Glibenclamide (Daonil) are more risky than others. The symptoms of hypoglycemia are: sweating, tremors, sudden thirst or hunger, palpitations, giddiness, fatigue, tiredness, etc. Some or all of these symptoms may be present. They usually occur when the patient has skips a meal or exercises more than usual or takes an over dosage of the medicine. If you or your dear one has symptoms of hypo, give him/her something sweet to eat IMMEDIATELY & then take him/her to the doctor. Hypoglycemia, if severe, can lead to coma & even death.

If everything is normal then the pain may be muscular or due to hyperacidity. For hyperacidity take some anta acids and for muscular pain you go for massage with mahanarayan tail followed by hot fomentation.

There's a higher rate of cardiac problems faced by people suffering from respiratory ailments as low levels of oxygen in blood does trigger a heart attack. Get investigation done for blockages in heart by angiography or cardiac ct scan and get him treated for blockages as there can be blockages in the brain too, causes of heart attack and stroke are same, reason for blackouts and fainting attacks. Get her checked and follow advice of your doctor.
