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 . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Dear lybrate-user. These indicate that different part and functions of your heart change with your mind set a lot and have begun to form a weakness. You need to take precautionary measures and treatment. The language is technical, so can be very alarming. But yes, you need to take care. Ayurvedic Suved and Reimmugen will give you the support. Some other medications may be required depending on other health parameters. Take care.

Is there any inflammation or redness or soreness present over rib area, if yes continue taking medicines which are anti-inflammatory and analgesic. Apply volini gel over it. If it is internal wait for one more day if still pain persists perform xray.

Hello lybrate-user, with history of pneumonia, cigarette is like a poison for you already. Severe throat pain and chest pain might be because of some infection and before jumping to any conclusions and advice, I would suggest that you undergo an x ray as soon as possible. Also please take care of your lungs as you still have a long life ahead and you don't want to spend it popping pills for everything-stop smoking.

I want to make my heart healthy. what should i do to make my health healthy always?
A well balanced diet consisting of fruits, vegetables and proteins like dal (pulses) or meat is very important in keeping your body healthy. For a healthy heart is essential to do a daily workout of cardio and/or other excercises or yoga, that helps rejuvenate the blood flow to the heart strengthening its response to stress. Keep a close watch on your bmi (body mass index) that you can calculate online and keep stressors out of your routine life. Hope you keep fit! stay healthy.
