Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega 3 pills

If you have a heart disease, high cholesterol or a family history of heart problems, then you need to increase your intake of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

These healthy fatty acids help lower triglycerides (fats in the blood) and prevent angina. Plus, due to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, omega-3 fats have a profound effect on heart health.

Exercise stress test (also called treadmill test) is an important investigation not only in patients with suspected cad but also in established cad. In the former group, it helps us to exclude cad in patients with chest pain and in the later group, it helps us to assess functional capacity, risk stratification and to detect any additional (new or residual) ischemia. Stress test being a physiological test, has a huge advantage of assessing the adequacy of myocardial blood flow without even knowing the coronary anatomy, while coronary angiogram (cag) has a zero physiological value* in spite of excellent assessment of the coronary anatomy! it is an irony, in the assessment of angina we are expected to assess the physiological adequacy of myocardial blood flow, we have kept coronary angiogram as a gold standard over and above the much neglected physiological stress test. Of course, the limitation of stress test is that, it has only 75% specificity (to rule out cad) and about 80% sensitivity (to detect cad. In simple terms stress test is likely to miss 20% times to miss a cad in patients with cad and 25% of times falsely diagnose cad in patients without cad. In the above statistics, coronary angiogram was considered gold standard. The problem with this data is that, cag is not the real gold standard, but it was nominated as a gold standard. We now know normal coronary angiogram is not equivalent to normal coronary arteries and vice versa. While both test have limitations, it is logical to believe cag has an edge over stress test since it visualises the anatomy. But, once an obstruction is demonstrated by cag, stress test scores over in assessing the physiological impact of the lesion.

Your Mother's BP seems to fluctuate with change in mood. So the first thing to do is to make sure she develops healthy habits and some hobby which she enjoys. Maybe knitting, singing, potted plants or a pet animal. Her choice. This will help her relax mentally and support better BP levels. Control her diet strongly. Oily, spicy, chilies and difficult to digest food stuff like cholle, rajma, chana dal, mooli. These will affect BP. So reduce or even stop for few weeks. She will feel the benefit soon. Make sure she sleeps well. In comfortable bed and cool room. Proper sleep is essential for good health. Take her for walks, walking helps the mind relax. Have a good Dusshera. Best wishes.

Any HDL level above more than 60 mg/dL (1.56 mmol/L) is considered high. A high HDL level is considered very healthy, since it has a protective role in guarding against heart disease. An acceptable HDL range is between 40- 60 mg/dL (1.04–1.56 mmol/L). An undesirable level of HDL is any level below 40 mg/dL (1.04 mmol/L). In this case, low HDL levels may help to contribute to heart disease. Very Low Density Lipoproteins Very low density lipoproteins, or VLDL, are lipoproteins that carry cholesterol from the liver to organs and tissues in the body. They are formed by a combination of cholesterol and triglycerides. VLDLs are heavier than low density lipoproteins, and are also associated with atherosclerosis and heart disease. This number is obtained by dividing your triglyceride levels by 5.
