She should get a bone density to check bone strength and take natural or ayurvedic bone supplements. She should avoid spicy, oily and sour and old food. Increase intake of greens, salad, raw foods and fruit. If she cannot loose weight, it will be a great problem in future. You have to induce her to do pranayama and mild exercise.

Get an ecg done to rule out whether the pain is related to your heart. If there are any variations, then meet a cardiologist for further management. But if it is normal, then the pain may be due to gastritis for which you need to be treated with medications for 2-3 weeks.

I have detected by high cholesterol, how can I reduce the cholesterol level in blood.
By medicines or by home remedies.?
Hello dear 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. 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, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

My heart beats very fast than normal, and it regular happens with me while at sitting as like a rest also. So can you please tell me why this happens.

Given your age, you should be put on medication for cholesterol and you should also undergo cardiac evaluation to rule out any cardiac disease, given your back condition, an Echo, followed by Dobutamine Stress Echo will be better for you, rather than a stress test. Also change your diet, reduced sugar, carbohydrates and fried and junk food. Get a detailed Diet consult from a dietician. And if you can do start with walking around 20-25 mins everyday.

Dear lybrateuser, -take a few precautions before & while jogging -do warm up for at least 10 min, do stretching & walking, then slowly pick up speed, also do deep breathing exercises for 5-10 min daily -keep a slow pace, if even then it comes then stop for sometime then again start -if still pain is there after stopping & slowing the pace then get your bp checked up, do blood cbc, glucose, cholesterol, x-ray chest, ecg, tmt & consult a doctor with reports.

Mam, as I know, these types of messages have no scientific evidence, so following these is risky. Stick to basic, take properly advised medicine and diet suggested by your doctor. You may take some supportive ayurvedic medicine. Ask for more if required.

Hello lybrate-user, the symptoms you have described characteristically fits into gerd, which stands for gastroeaophageal reflux disease. Here the stomach acid when you lie flat or after heavy meals reflux back into the food pipe which may cause nausea, burping, breathlessness, feeling of acidic taste in the throat. This deserves a detailed discussion with your doctor. However some important measured you can take is. 1) avoid spicy, oily preserved food. No chocolates, aerated drinks, tea, coffee 2) avoid heavy meals and sleeping immediately after meals at least for one and half hours 3) raise head end of your bed by a already 10-12 inch s. Try using two pillows to sleep 4) take a medicine like sompraz d 40 mg 15 mins before breakfast for 2 weeks at least. Let me know how you feel in 2- 3 days after starting medication and we may evaluate it furthur as I believe that the cause of your breathing issue is because of the stomach.
