General Physician,
Are chicken eggs good or bad for my cholesterol?

Chicken eggs are high in cholesterol, but the effect of egg consumption on blood cholesterol is minimal when compared with the effect of trans fats and saturated fats.

The risk of heart disease may be more closely tied to the foods that accompany the eggs in a traditional American breakfast ? such as the sodium in the bacon, sausages and ham, and the saturated fat or oils with trans fats used to fry the eggs and the hash browns.

Most healthy people can eat up to seven eggs a week with no increase in their risk of heart disease. Some studies have shown that this level of egg consumption may actually prevent some types of strokes.

But the story is different for people who have diabetes. In this ever-growing population, eating seven eggs a week significantly increases the risk of heart disease.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one large egg has about 186 mg milligrams (mg) of cholesterol ? all of which is found in the yolk.

When deciding whether to include eggs in your diet, consider the recommended daily limits on cholesterol in your food:

If you are healthy, consume no more than 300 mg of cholesterol a day.
If you have diabetes, high cholesterol or heart disease, limit the daily cholesterol intake to no more than 200 mg a day.
If you like eggs but don't want the extra cholesterol, use only the egg whites. Egg whites contain no cholesterol. You may also use cholesterol-free egg substitutes, which are made with egg whites.

I am a male. Age 33.I am suffering from hypertension. I was taking Atmas AT daily.Now its causing side effects like skin rashes and Erectile Dysfunction.Suggest my any alternative of Amtas AT which does not have above side effects.

Skin rash and ED can happen rarely with this drug. Before changing drug, make it sure that there are no other causes of rash and ED.

Mr. lybrate-user, If blood glucose is well controlled then fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c%<7. Looking at your blood glucose levels, it is clear that the control is not adequate. There is no mention of HbA1c%. It appears that there is need for closer look at the diet and amount of exercise that is being done. Thanks.

Rheumatic Heart Disease: Things You Must Know About It!

Rheumatic Heart Disease: Things You Must Know About It!

Some people have a sore throat which they think will go away sooner rather than later. Well, while it may not seem serious, rheumatic heart disease means that it could potentially be! But, how exactly?

A sore throat usually comes about on account of bacteria affecting the region of the throat.

Sometimes what can happen is that the same bacteria can go all the way to the heart and damage the valves of it. This is very serious as the health of a person fundamentally depends on the health of his or her heart!

When a sore throat does not seem to be getting better even after about three days go by, the first thing which is to be done is to see a doctor. This is due to the fact that delays can result in the situation getting worse. As a result of this, treatment can get more complex. And who wishes to compound their own miseries, after all?

Children who are aged between five and fifteen years of age are at risk of rheumatic heart disease. Now, while it is true that children are likely to fall sick more often than adults as their immune systems may not be all that strong, a special eye is to be kept out for rheumatic heart disease. The general symptoms which a parent should look out for are a sore throat, a cough and a fever. The tough part is that these symptoms appear which a range of other conditions!

When it comes to knowing that rheumatic heart disease is what is affecting a person, a special blood test is taken and if there is a need, an ECG and some other measures confirm rheumatic heart disease. Penicillin is a wonder drug and it is used in the treatment of rheumatic heart disease, as well. It is the general form of treatment, in fact, and people with the disease are often put on a course of injections. This means that they need to have an injection every 28 days for a month so as to make sure that there is no further damage which can affect the valves of the heart. The importance of this cannot be impressed enough.

It is unfortunate that in many cases, people only discover that they have rheumatic heart disease once they reach adulthood. The valves of the heart may be leaking or significantly damaged by the time that the discovery is made. Is it not a lot better to save oneself from this sort of situation? If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Dear Lybrateuser, - The normal heart rate is between 60-100 beats / min, yours is in normal range - your problem could be due to acidity & anxiety - avoid spicy, fried & junk food, also restrict tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day - chew food well, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, do not skip meals, have meals on time - destress by doing regular exercise, include yoga, meditation & deep breathing for 5-10 min daily morning - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night.
