Nothing posted by this doctor yet. Here are some posts by similar doctors.

It is related to my sister (age: 16 years). She is a born intelligent and had topped every batch from her first to eleventh class. Now she is in 10 2, she some times feels pain in heart, some times she cries and shouts for no reason, even sometimes gets very angry for no/minor reasons. We had shown her to lot of doctors and had done lot of tests, but nothing comes out. Kindly suggest some thing.

Possibly she is frustrated, irritated, stressed and angry about some aspects of her life. She needs a one to one open talk with an expert who can understand her. A Psychotherapist and guide her. General doctors may not be able to help. She may not need medicines, only care, empathy and compassion. I feel she is taking too much pressure of her studies and her self expectations are too high. Be quick and connect either online or in person.

I am 21 years old suffering from high blood pressure. It generally increases when I got excited. How to control dis.
To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily.

Heart Attack In Women - Symptoms You Should Be Aware Of!!

Heart Attack In Women - Symptoms You Should Be Aware Of!!

Women, who have been thinking that cardiac diseases are something that doesn’t need much attention, then you have tragically mistaken. As a matter of fact, these are the diseases which most women aren’t too aware of. However, it is affecting a lot of women all over the world. The most common issue in cardiology, particularly among women is a heart attack. The first thing that we should know is that Cardiovascular diseases like  heart attack are killing as many women as men.

Almost more than 25,000 women are dying all over India every year from a heart attack or other coronary heart diseases. The ratio results show that women are suffering from heart attack three times more than that of breast cancer. The main reason that creates this higher toll is that the disease may be different in women. However, in the case of men, it stays more localised. In the case of women, the disease is diffused and spread out, but it can be treated. 

You cannot seek immunity only through pills:
We should be aware of the fact that pills will help you to curb the chance of having a heart attack, but again doctors claim that the risk does hike quite significantly after the menopause in women. The pills in such case can create various side effects and eventually trigger more cardiac diseases. The formation of clots in blood are created by different kinds of hormonal contraception, which is the main reason for a potential heart attack in women.

Heart attack symptoms in women:
We all know that the classic heart attack symptoms include severe pressure on the chest and extreme chest pain. However, these symptoms can be quite subtle in case of women. So, here we are listing down 4 of the most common symptoms of heart attack for women and those are:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Shortness of breath
  3. Throat pain and jaw pain
  4. Pain in arms may be in one or both

If you experience any one of these symptoms even, make sure that you go for a check immediately. Take quicker action as each minute that goes on during a heart attack is creating the death of a heart muscle.

Smoking doubles the risk of a heart attack in women
According to experts in cardiology, the most important fact that triggers a heart attack in women is smoking, which increases the blood pressure and causes the blood to pile up in your blood vessels, reducing the good HDL cholesterol which clots the blood and eventually results in a heart attack.

You must be wondering about the favourable chances of having a heart attack for women. The fifth and final thing to know about a heart attack is that women who are weighing thirty pounds or more have more chances of heart attack. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Stop sugar free and juices also as they can raise levels of blood sugar rapidly compared to whole fruits plus fruits give benefits of fiber also. Develop a sugar free taste. Difficult but not impossible.
