Dear lybrate-user this difference between bp of two arm is considered to be too significant to enquire about cause. It could be because of blockage in major artey called (aorta) or in left arm artery. Needed to checked bp many times before going to conclusions. If difference still be there, then consult a cardiologist or vascular surgeon in person.

Pain on the right side of the chest could be due to muscle pain, hyper acidity, some lung issue, liver issue. We cannot give a straight answer to that because unless you give some more information we can pin point the ailment. So either come in private chat for detailed discussion or take him to a local qualified doctor for proper assessment and treatment. Good luck.

Bypass surgery gives a new life. Person has to be careful about food, exercise and other factors that lead to heart attack like smoking and pollution and stress. You know about heart surgery and someone after surgery must have explained about aftercare about diet and exercise. If not do get back here for guidance. Yes person leads a normal life 3 months after surgery, may be it works like a shock treatment because people contribute more to self and society.

How to prevent Heart Disease

MBBS, PG Diploma in Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Gurgaon

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. I am Dr. JS Khatri and I am a non-material cardiologist and practicing in Gurgaon, Palam vihar. Today I would like to aware you people or the whole population of India or the world about the preventable heart disease among which coronary artery disease which is called extremist heart disease is a very important cause of death all over the world.

 What is actually coronary heart disease and extremist heart disease?

 - So coronary heart disease is a disease of the corollary which supplies blood to the heart and eventually causes ischaemia which leads Death all over the world.

So what could be the risk factor?

- The important risk factor which causes heart diseases are categorized in two ways

  • Modifiable risk factors
  • Non modifiable Risk factor.

See among the modifiable risk factors we have to see that like age l, sex ethnicity and genetics which we cannot modify. I hope you understand age ethnicity like black niggeros they are more prone to heart disease. They are twice prone to the heart diseases as to the whites and we Asian races.

Now among the non-modifiable risk factor which encounters more on daily basis in our daily to life are most importantly is diabetes.

Second is smoking, third hypertension, fourth cholesterol, fifth stress factors, five lifestyle-sedentary lifestyle. So what we can change in our day-to-day activities is very important. Like the person who's having sedentary lifestyle, who does not do any physical work and have sitting job and doesn't do anything whole day has more tendency to have blood pressures and regarding diseases are preventable in such a factor. We can check our cholesterol or diabetes like our blood sugar and we can do the daily morning walk and it is recommended by American College of Cardiology that daily walk of at least 10 minutes thrice a day or a 30 to four units of work per day at least five days a week helps you to prevent heart disease. So we have to look for the non modifiable risk factors and also do the modifiable risk factor.

Now I would like to aware you about few very crisp factors like AVCs of heart in respect to the coronary arteries or a preventable heart disease what is this AVC of the Heart. If you are suffering from any of these factors like diabetes or hypertension or having high cholesterol or you are having a sedentary life style respectively. You can change your lifestyle and you can counter it before the disease occur. Now AVCs of the heart is for aspirin in your daily life. If your having risk factor of you are diabetic, you should take aspirin as for the recommendations and B the AVC of the heart is very important and at the last I would like to talk about the medications. The very important meditation which you daily life take in aspirin state in beta blocker for the prevention of the coronary heart disease after the disease occurs.

So at last I would like to tell you about if you want to prevent or consult me regarding the prevention of heart disease, you can consult me through lybrate and you can come to my clinic in person which is located in Palam Vihar Also you can contact through Lybrate also. Thank you Sir. Thank you very much.
