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 .

Thank you for the query. Prior to starting your medication (stamlo 2.5 mg) your bp was 150/90 mm of hg. The present control of bp is probably due to your medication. If you stop it there may be a sudden shoot up. It is important to reduce your oral salt intake. Please consult your physician before taking any decision to stop the drug. Even if the medicine is stopped, your bp must be monitored to look for any rise. Regards.

Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. 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.

I am a 40 years old male having Hypertension for the past 5 years I was taking Telma 40 morning and amlong 5 mg evening for the last three years a week ago my BP suddenly shot up to 190/100 I was feeling dizzy and my heart was pounding very fast this lasted for half and hour. The next day I got and ECG and 2D Echo done which was normal but the TMT test showed positive for induced ischemia. On the Doctor's advice I got a coronary angiogram done which showed mild coronary artery disease but no blocks there was slight plaque build up in the arteries the doctor changed my medicine to cilamet xl 10/50 to be taken morning and ecosprin av 20/75 to be taken in afternoon. It has been 3 days and I still get sudden panic attacks where I feel chill feeling on my hands and feeling of irregular heart beat this last for about 15 minutes and subsides. The doctor has now added ZAPIZ 0.5 to be taken in evening. With this I am not feeling the panic/anxiety symptoms. What is wrong with me should I see a Neurologist or Psychiatrist? Is this sudden feeling of panic/anxiety attack due to cilamet xl?

Dear Friend Not every person with abnormal TMT test required Coronary angiography. You could do stress echo or stress thallium to confirm coronary artery disease (CAD). It again indicate that in future you r not right candidate for TMT as it was false positive & will remain false positive foreever. You said that you had bp problem since 35. It should be evaluated. High bp in young may be bcz of thyroid problem or some kidney problem or kidney tumour which are curable type of hypertension you may have anxiety panick attack thatswhy you have some relief after giving antianxiety medication. To be summerize YOU NEED TO EVALUATE CAUSE OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AT THIS YOUNG AGE.

Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal( hormonal) problems , metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia . Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision . It's a safe and near scarless procedure . Consult a plastic surgeon for that.

To help manage your diabetes, your meals need to be: • Regular and spread evenly throughout the day • Lower in fat, particularly saturated fat • If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks Matching the amount of food you eat with the amount you burn up each day is important. Not putting too much fuel in your body (keeping food intake to moderate serves) is vital to getting the right balance. Along with healthy eating, regular physical activity can help you to manage your blood glucose levels, reduce your blood fats (cholesterol and triglycerides) and maintain a healthy weight. . It is important to recognise that one diet does not fit everyone with diabetes. So my slogan for all diabetics is 'One Diet does Not Fit All'. So every individual diabetic should consult a dietician to plan a way according to individual body,tastes and requirements.Only then can you control your blood sugar levels. Fat Fats have the highest energy (kilocalorie) content of all foods. Eating too much fat can make you put on weight, which may make it more difficult to manage blood glucose levels. While it is important to try and reduce fat in your diet, especially if you are trying to lose weight, some fat is good for health. Saturated fat It is important to limit saturated fat because it raises your LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels. Saturated fat is found in animal foods like fatty meat, milk, butter and cheese. Vegetable fats that are saturated include palm oil (found in solid cooking fats, snack foods or convenience foods) and coconut products such as copha, coconut milk or cream. To reduce saturated fat: • Choose reduced or low-fat milk, yoghurt, ice-cream and custard • Choose lean meat and trim any fat off before cooking • Remove the skin from chicken (where possible, before cooking) • Avoid using butter, cream, sour cream, coconut milk, coconut cream and hard cooking margarines • Limit the amount of cheese you eat and try reduced-fat and low-fat varieties • Limit pastries, cakes, puddings, chocolate and cream biscuits to special occasions • Limit pre-packaged biscuits, packet snacks, cakes, frozen and convenience meals • Limit the use of processed deli meats ( chicken loaf, salami etc) and sausages • Avoid fried takeaway foods such as chips, fried chicken and battered fish and choose BBQ chicken (without the skin) and grilled fish instead • Avoid pies, sausage rolls and pastries • Rather than creamy sauces or dressings, choose those that are based on tomato, soy or other low fat ingredients. As some tomato and soy sauces can be high in salt, choose low-salt varieties or make them yourself without any added salt. • Limit creamy style soups. Polyunsaturated & monounsaturated fats Eating small amounts of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats can help ensure you get the essential fatty acids and vitamins your body needs. Polyunsaturated fats include: • Polyunsaturated margarines (check the label for the word ‘polyunsaturated’) • Sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, cottonseed, grapeseed and sesame oils • The fat found in oily fish such as herring, mackerel, sardine, salmon and tuna. Monounsaturated fats include: • Canola® and olive oils • Some margarines • Avocado. Seeds, nuts, nut spreads and peanut oil contain a combination of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. Ideas for enjoying healthy fats • Stir-fry meat and vegetables in a little canola® oil (or oil spray) with garlic or chilli • Dress a salad or steamed vegetables with a little olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar • Sprinkle sesame seeds on steamed vegetables • Use linseed bread and spread a little canola margarine • Snack on a handful of unsalted nuts, or add some to a stir-fry or salad • Spread avocado on sandwiches and toast, or add to a salad • Eat more fish (at least three times a week) because it contains a special type of fat (omega-3) that is good for your heart. • Do more dry roasting, grilling, microwaving and stir-frying in a non-stick pan • Avoid deep fried, battered and crumbed foods Carbohydrate I recommend to eat a moderate amount of carbohydrates for all Diabetics means, on a plate, approx, 1/4 of the plate should be carbohydrate foods. Carbohydrate foods are the best energy source for your body. When they are digested they break down to form glucose in the bloodstream. Insulin takes the glucose out of the blood and deposits it into the muscles, liver and other cells in the body where it is used to provide energy. A regular carbohydrate intake is required to provide our body and brain with instant energy. Most foods contain carbohydrate and also provide us with fibre, vitamins and minerals. Very low carbohydrate diets are not recommended for people with diabetes. If you eat regular meals and spread your carbohydrate foods evenly throughout the day, you will help maintain your energy levels without causing large rises in your blood glucose levels. If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks. Discuss this with your doctor or dietician. All carbohydrate foods are digested to produce glucose but they do so at different rates – some slow, some fast. The glycemic index or GI is a way of describing how a carbohydrate containing food affects blood glucose levels. The type of carbohydrate you eat is very important as some can cause higher blood glucose after eating. The best combination is to eat moderate amounts of carbohydrate and include high fibre foods that also have a low GI. Sugar A healthy eating plan for diabetes can include some sugar. However, it is important to consider the nutritional value of the foods you eat. In general, foods with added sugars should be consumed sparingly (manufacturers sometimes use fruit juice or other sources of sugar to avoid using table sugar). In particular, high energy foods such as sweets, lollies and standard soft drinks should not be consumed on a regular basis. Some sugar may also be used in cooking and many recipes can be modified to use less than the amount stated or substituted with an alternative sweetener. Select recipes that are low in fat (particularly saturated fat) and contain some fibre. Alternative sweeteners The use of intense sweeteners by people with diabetes is preferable to use of natural sugars. Protein Choose protein foods that are also low in fat. This will help to reduce the amount of saturated fat you eat. Protein foods include lean meat, poultry without the skin, seafood, eggs (not fried), unsalted nuts, soy products such as tofu and pulses (dried beans and lentils). Herbs, condiments & drinks You can use these following foods nd add flavour and variety to your meals. • Herbs, spices, garlic, chilli, lemon juice, vinegar and other seasonings. • Products labelled ‘low calorie’ (e.g. low calorie/diet soft drinks, low calorie jelly). • Tea, coffee, herbal tea, water, soda water, plain mineral water. • Limit your alcohol intake if you choose to drink
