It depends on your blood pressure level. If it is well controlled we can taper gradually, but already u r on very low dose of antihypertensive, so dont worry.

I am 36 years with average weight of 74 kg and do regular exercise. 3 months ago I had anxiety attacks and that followed with hyperacidity and than since I had stop my beer habit, I went into mild depression. All this happened in the last three months. But the most I am worried about is acidity and Gas. Because I took three Ecgs as my chest was in pain. But doctors ruled out any heart issues. Now again I am in trouble with the chest burn and that radiation goes to my left shoulder to my left wrist sometimes. But when I have a deep burp it kind of relaxes. Is it all related or I should be worried about any heart issues. How should I get treated ?

Anand, Anxiety is defined as chronic worry about something which may or may not happen in future. Anxiety and acidity are relatives and they usually stay together. Three ECGs were taken and you are cleared of any heart related problems. Then you should stop worrying about your heart. I advise you to take garlic pearls one pill morning and night after meals. I also request you to post a private question to me with as many details and symptoms as possible. I am happy to help. Take care.

Hi, lybrate-user. You may be having non cardiac chest pain. Although not necessary at your age and particularly if you do not have diabetes or high bp, you can do one tmt to clear your doubt. For non cardiac chest pain you should not worry too much. Simple analgesic may be enough.

What kind of food suitable for maintain lower cholesterol and maintain lower sugar.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you do not have diabetes then normal balanced diet like everyone else is fine for maintaining normal glucose and lipid levels. Precautions to be taken are: avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed food products. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Exercise regularly for over 1 hour a day. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. These measures help in maintaining lipids and blood glucose at desired level. Thanks.

Care has to be taken immediately with regard to food medicines and exercises. 1) food like - curd banana milk deep-fried oily canned food and food added with preservatives chat-food cucumber non-veg have to be completely avoided 2) an exercise routine has to be started such that the body sweats for at least 10-15 min 3) include food like oats un chilled-buttermilk onion garlic ginger pepper wheat barley pomegranate jambu fruit in your diet 4) if interested you can text me for advise on oral medications.

Your b p. Is under control by medication good thing you don't have diabetes. Your weight slightly on overwt by7 to 8kg try to reduce it. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. And balanced and diet. Do not change or regulate the medication without consulting your physicians. To know if there is any blockage of coronary arteries. You should go coronary angiography. It is safe it can be done in any good hospital where catch lab facility's are available.

What is the basic preventive step for hyperlipidaemia?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What is the basic preventive step for hyperlipidaemia?
Hello dear patient. High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

It seems you have social anxiety. Go ahead and start mingling with people, when you speak to people look into their eyes and speak. Go out with friends and family for dinner and lunch and show interest in others. Avoid stress, eat healthy nutritious balanced diet and sleep adequately. Practice yoga and meditation. Wish you good health, take care.
