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. you should be avoid bad habits ,fatty meal/oily foods/junk/fast foods/alcohol/smoking/noo-veg. take whole grain meal/oats/dalia/green veg./fruits/juice/ use garlic . you can take also cap. ecosprin gold-10 at night. and consult cardiologist.

Questions: What is the difference between hypertrophic cardiomyopathy vs simple physiological left ventricle hypertrophy? History: The ECG for my father (52, M) showed an abnormal r wave progression (early transition) and the printed ECG had the words "probable left ventricular hypertrophy" on it. My father isn't hypertensive, doesn't smoke or drink nor does he have weight issues. He exercises but not as excessively as a professional athlete (walks at a slow-medium pace for 1.5-2 hours every day). His resting heart rate is usually between 65-70. No exercise intolerance. The only symptom he has is a pain in his right shoulder that worsens when pressed (seems tender, no lymph node involvement). Given all of this, what is the difference between hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and plain LVH. As I understand, the former is a genetic condition but if someone presents with LVH, when does he/she have LVH and when does he have HCM because even HCM needs LVH (greater than 15 cm)? We've had no sudden cardiac deaths in our family that we remember (just strokes and one cardiac death as a complication of diabetes). In the same vein, how do we take this further? Do we need to schedule a 2D echo or something else (genetic tests?). Thanks!

Lvh is usually seen in elderly people when they have uncontrolled hypertension and hcm is seen at a very early age without any history of hypertension and I will suggest you to get his 2decho done and follow up with reports and genetic testing is not required.

My cousin had a pain at heart his smoking for four years he was trying to stop but he can't is there any helpful tips.
Kindly get his ecg done to rule out ischaemia and revert. 1. Start your stop smoking plan with =s t a r t s- set a date for quitting smoking. Choose a date within next two weeks, so that you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit t- tell your family, friends and co-workers that you want to quit so that they can give support and encouragement a-anticipate and plan for the challenge you will face while quitting like crave for cigarettes and nicotine withdrawal symptoms r- remove cigarettes, lighter, ash tray, matches etc from home, car or work place t- talk to your doctor about getting help to quit and to deal with nicotine withdrawal symptoms 2. Distract yourself to keep your mind off smoking like concentrate on some work, watching tv, playing games, reading books/magazines, listen to music, cross word puzzle or playing online games etc 3. Remind yourself why you want to quit. Focus on your reasons for quitting like health benefits, improved appearance, financial effect and enhancement of self esteem 4. Get out of tempting situations like someone smoking close by 5. Reward yourself- reinforce your victories whenever you triumph over a craving. Give yourself a reward to keep yourself motivated 6. Find an oral substitute like mint, nicotine lozenges, nicotine patch, chewing gums etc 7. Keep your hands busy like squeezing balls, handling pencils, paper clips to satisfy the need for tactile stimulation 8. Brush your teeth-the just brushed clean feeling can motivate you to get rid of craving 9. Slowly drink a large cold glass of water to help the craving pass and keep you hydrated. It also minimizes the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal 10. Go for regular exercise, play some games 11. Practice yoga, meditation and deep breathing exercise to calm your mind, control emotion and relive stress 12. Avoid stress, anxiety, depression, excess work load, severe physical and mental exertion.

To increase weight it's not important to eat a lot. It's important to eat healthy and maintain consistent metabolic rate. Maintain good metabolism by following this: 1 take fibrous fruits and vegetables 2 eat healthy stuffs. Quality is important than quantity. Take whole grains than refined ones, consume natural home cooked food than processed one, aerated drinks are a big no. Consume green leafy vegetables. Dairy products like cottage cheese, milk, curd, cheese in moderation 3 exercise is a must for increasing metabolism. Follow any of these remedies: 1 eat peanuts soaked in milk overnight in the morning before breakfast. 2 eat handful of raisins and green gram soaked in water overnight before breakfast. 3 consume cashews soaked in milk overnight in the morning.
