Show we eat butter, if yes then which type of butter is good for health salted, unsalted or low cholesterol.
Margarine usually tops butter when it comes to heart health. Margarine is made from vegetable oils, so it contains unsaturated "good" fats — polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These types of fats help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad," cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat. Butter, on the other hand, is made from animal fat, so it contains more saturated fat.

No not necessarily it is a heart disease. It could be due to common cold in the ribs/due to abdominal gas. You should do a chest x-ray to rule out the reasons for the chest pain.

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack Can be Found on Your Eyelids

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Warning Signs of a Heart Attack Can be Found on Your Eyelids

A health condition known as xanthelasma (xanthelasma palpebrarum), a sharply demarcated yellowish deposit of fat underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids, has been linked to heart disease. These yellow formations occur in the upper or lower eyelid near the inner corner of the eye.
. Br>The study findings were published in the british medical journal.
The link between heart disease and xanthelasma:
Both men and women can suffer from this condition, especially after 40. These yellow growths are the result of cholesterol deposits and indicate a higher level of cholesterol in almost half of the patients affected with this condition.

These growths are soft and painless and do not affect vision. In fact, people with xanthelasma usually seek medical help because these growths are unattractive. Aesthetics is the main reason why people decide to remove them, without considering them as a warning of a more serious condition, and despite their re-emergence after removal.
A recent danish research confirmed the connection between heart disease and xanthelasma. Professor tibjaerg hansen who led the team, came to conclusions that will change the way we see these seemingly harmless growths, which are ignored as irrelevant by both patients and doctors.

Men affected with xanthelasma are at a 12% higher risk of heart attack. Men aged 70-79 are at an even higher risk.

Women with xanthelasma have an 8% higher risk of heart attack, as opposed to those who are not affected.

It has been poved that women have a lower risk of heart disease, and researchers in this study explain that in this particular group of patients, xanthelasma allows accurate prediction of heart disease.

The research concluded that xanthelasma may indicate a heart attack, severe atherosclerosis, heart disease and death, independent of other factors such as high cholesterol, obesity, smoking and high blood pressure.

The presence of xanthelasma cases in each age group indicates an increased probability of heart disease, heart attack and death. Both men and women who have these yellow growths on their eyelids are likely to experience a heart attack, and maybe they will even be life threatened in a 10-year period.

It has been proven that men are more prone to heart disease.

If these yellow growths appear on your eyelids, it is important for you to immediately check your cholesterol levels read less

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Along with unhealthy dietary habits (having processed food very often / not having meals on time etc) or getting tense or stressed is the main reason behind lifestyle disorder like B.P. Fluctuation. Do deep breath practice 5 times/day (take 20 deep breaths, while inhaling your stomach should rise and on exhaling it should come back to normal. Have meals or snacks (like: fresh fruits, soaked dry fruits, Sprouts, Soups, coconut water, Eggs etc.) in every 3-4 hours. Drink plenty of water (consume about 150 ml water in a go, increase frequency of water).

Hi, pituitary is the "master control gland" - it makes hormones that affect growth and the functions of other glands in the body. With pituitary disorders, you often have too much or too little of one of your hormones. Which might be to root cause to all these problems are facing. But before anything we need to pin point the problem with hormonal study. So go for these tests and consult a nearby endocrinologist.

Best way to control BP and wt shud my diet chart as I had encountered heart attack and im a heart patient.
Dear, *mild exercise regularly, *eat a healthy diet eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure *consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. *reduce sodium in your diet *caffeine can raise blood pressure by as much as 10 mm hg in people who rarely consume it, but there is little to no strong effect on blood pressure in habitual coffee drinkers. *reduce your stress *get support supportive family and friends can help improve your health. They may encourage you to take care of yourself, drive you to the doctor's office or embark on an exercise program with you to keep your blood pressure low.

Doctor, I want to ask about Hypertension. I mean I guess I am suffering from it, I am 17, my body gets heated up In different situations like, when I get scared or when I get angry. Last year I took some pills from gym I don't know what was that, gym trainer said that these are mass gainer so I tried them, eventually I understood after taking first pill that these were strong, because I ran at least 20 times to washroom in Night, and next day I threw the rest of pills, but that pill did his work it showed it's effect in my kidneys, somehow I cured it by ayurvedic medication, and now I am getting this heat problem, and now I don't want any medication if it's Hypertension, so is it hypertension or anything else, and I read an article online that was about Hypertension that you should do weight lifting exercises, and in another article there was that don't do gym do breathing exercises, So what should I do.

Hello. The medicines which you took from gym could be steroids, which trend to increase adenaline in your body, causing euphoria and increased work capacity. But it has other effects too, like rise in heart rate, blood pressure, epigastric discomfort. Bone disorption, increase in salt and water retntion. I advise you to discontinue it. Its very rare to get hypertension at your age. Weight bearing exercises are good for muscle strenghthening and bones, breathing exercises for mind, body relaxation, also would of help for controlling your anger.

The 1st reading may be in response to your apprehension anxiety, BP rise is a pretty normal phenomenon in anxiety or stress situation. Once that resolves your BP shows normal reading. Or it could be some caliberation problem in the machine for which you can contact the company for a caliberation.

Hello, For your problem exercise is the best solution. Ask him to start doing physical activity like walking. Start with 10 min and can continue it to an hour. This helps with his fatigue and low B.P. Regarding diet, make sure he is taking 7 -8 servings of fruits and vegetable. Give him only brown rice or millets for main meals. Snack on fruits and nuts. Avoid non veg, and wheat . This should help him. Stay healthy stay fit☺

Perhaps your high blood pressure and hormonal imbalance and cervical vertebral incomplete segmentation are the problems. You need a proper treatment for some months/year to get rid of your complaints. Please maintain a normal blood pressure by doing morning walks/exercises/taking low fat diet/complete avoidance of non-veg items. Continue treatment.

6 weeks plus is too early to predict outcome of growth. Thyroid is low on borderline and I would not suggest medicine during early pregnancy. Be sure that baby growth will pick up within few days specially if medical reports are normal you may be given medicines for low thyroid later. Do write back after a month. Eat a low fat but light high protein diet to avoid vomiting.
