No need to worry about these medical results. First of all try to take a curative treatment for your thyroid problems. Do not worry about High triglycerides. It will come down gradually with some simple medicines. Do regular exercise and follow low fatty diet habits. Include more salads in your plate. Avoid fluorine products from your day to day activities. (eg. High flourine Tooth paste, etc)

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Dear lybrate-user If your heart rate increases when you smoke weed, maybe you should not do it. Smoking up does give you a buzz for a while but if you do realise, for long term this has a bad impact on your brain. Try looking for some deaddction program nearby to your place if you fall in the addiction zone. You will be out of it if you will make genuine efforts. Ask your friends and family members to keep a check on you and look for motivation amongst them. Avoid company of people who smoke. You will go through withdrawl symptoms initially but try not to fall weak due to that. Take care and Good luck.

What Is The Best Diet For Quick Recovery After A Heart Attack?

What Is The Best Diet For Quick Recovery After A Heart Attack?

If you had suffered a heart attack recently, it is quite natural to for a patient to feel weak as the heart goes through a tremendous amount of stress during the condition. So, it is very important for a heart patient to know the things that will help you them recover from it. A healthy diet is the first step towards the recovery. A proper diet can not only help you recover quickly, but you won’t suffer from a second attack too. If people had followed this dietary habits beforehand, then they wouldn’t have to face a heart attack in the first place. So, to recover and get back to your daily lifestyle, you must keep these foods in your daily diet.

  1. Fruits and Vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are a must and are of paramount importance when it comes to recovering from a heart attack. The most significant advantage is that they have lower calories and at the same time they provide sufficient nutrition. They will keep your blood pressure at a standard level and thus promote the health of your heart. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in potassium can also combat and balance the counter-effects that result from sodium. So, avoid your oily snacks and have fruits instead.
  2. Green Tea: Green tea is highly recommended by doctors for patients that have recently suffered a heart attack. They have been proven to be at risk of heart attack and other health problems related to the heart by 20%. Green tea does not contain any calories and is rich in anti-oxidants which are the main constituents responsible for the recovery.
  3. Nuts: You must have already been aware of the several advantages of consuming almonds. Another addition to its advantages is aiding the process of recovery after a heart attack. However, it is to be noted that nuts are good for a person who has suffered a heart attack only if they are not salted.
  4. Whole Grains: The refined grains tend to lose their nutrients while on the other hand whole grains are rich in fiber and nutrients. They will keep your blood pressure in check and promote the well-being of your heart.

What to avoid?
Apart from the items mentioned above, there are several foods that you must avoid at all costs. The first one that comes in this list is the food items that are rich in sugar content. This will lead to an increase in weight and thus aggravate heart problems. You must also avoid salty foods as they will increase your blood pressure. Avoid meats and eggs as much as you can as they are highly rich in cholesterol which is another factor that must be avoided.

Follow a diet chart that incorporates the do’s and don’ts to have a speedy recovery and get back to normal routine. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

This can result in obstruction of blood flow across the valve, a condition called aortic stenosis and/or valve leakage, a condition called aortic valve regurgitation. The natural course of bicuspid aortic valve varies widely. There can be severe aortic stenosis at birth, due to incomplete opening of the valve leaflets. About 20-30% of patients with bicuspid aortic valve will have other family members affected. There is no exact genetic cause known, and the inheritance pattern can be very variable although there certainly appears to be a genetic component. In patients with bicuspid aortic valve with a known family history of valve disease or aortic disease, it is definitely recommended to screen all first-degree relatives with echocardiography. Most experts would recommend that echocardiographic screening be performed in all first-degree relatives of patients with bicuspid aortic valve. As mentioned above, the bicuspid aortic valve is a valvulo-aortopathy diagnosis, which means it affects the valve and the aorta. If the valve becomes severely leaky or severely tight, then operation is performed as per usual guidelines. These are basically if symptoms develop, or there is evidence of heart failure or heart muscle dysfunction. However many patients with bicuspid aortic valve will have aortic disease without significant valve disease and may need to undergo operation of the aorta aneurysm. Some patients will require both are done. Operation for aortic aneurysm in patients with bicuspid aortic valve is recommended in those who have ascending aorta diameter >5.5 cm.

What are the possible causes of heart attacks. What medicines and exercise need to maintain cholesterol level?

What are the possible causes of heart attacks. What medicines and exercise need to maintain cholesterol level?
Dear, *A heart attack occurs when one or more of coronary arteries become blocked. Over time, a coronary artery can narrow from the buildup of various substances, including cholesterol (atherosclerosis). This condition, known as coronary artery disease, causes most heart attacks. *Another cause of a heart attack is a spasm of a coronary artery that shuts down blood flow to part of the heart muscle. Use of tobacco and of illicit drugs, such as cocaine, can cause a life-threatening spasm. A heart attack can also occur due to a tear in the heart artery (spontaneous coronary artery dissection). *High cholesterol increases risk of heart disease and heart attacks. You can improve cholesterol with medications, but if you'd rather first make lifestyle changes to improve your cholesterol, try these exercise options to help shed pounds and manage high cholesterol: *Walking *Jogging or running *Swimming *Taking an aerobics class *Biking *Playing tennis, basketball, or other sports *Using weight machines or lifting free weights to build muscle tone

High Blood Pressure - Unani Remedies For Treating It!

Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)

High Blood Pressure - Unani Remedies For Treating It!

The blood normally exerts some pressure as it passes through the blood vessels. However, due to various reasons, mainly narrowing of the blood vessels, the pressure exerted could be higher, which is known as hypertension.

In the Unani system, early reference to high blood pressure appears as Imtila, though it is today popularly known as Zaghtuddam Qawi. Imtila talks about symptoms including a headache, bulging eyes, epistaxis (bleeding nose), heavy headedness, and headache.

Types: Unani system believes in two ways that can increase blood pressure and therefore two types

  • Increased amount of blood in the vessels, which is caused a hot, moist temperament or the sanguineous type.
  • Dryness of the vessels (caused by narrowing) increases blood pressure, leading to the dry, cold melancholic type.

Causes: Unani believes high blood pressure as a result of the following sequence of events.

  • Weakening of the arteries
  • Increased food consumption, which produces more blood
  • Weak arteries which are not able to accommodate the increased amounts of blood
  • This is a vicious cycle where the arteries are further damaged, leading to further sluggish flow, further increasing pressure.

Complications: High blood pressure is not an isolated health condition. It leads to multiple complications like

Management: Managing high blood pressure is a combination of treatment and prevention. There are multiple Unani herbs, which are used in multiple formulations which help by

  • Relaxing the muscles of the heart
  • Improves blood flow
  • Eases the blood flow through the arteries

These can be taken regularly along with restrictions on diet and lifestyle which can help in improving blood pressure. These changes would include:

  1. Increased consumption of potassium-rich foods as it will counter the effect of sodium which causes higher blood pressure readings
  2. Avoid adding extra salt and reduce eating the salted, fried foods. Especially, if you have a family history, it is time to reduce salt intake at an early stage. This helps prolong the onset of high blood pressure
  3. Herbs like garlic, pepper, ginger, and lemon are helpful in controlling blood pressure
  4. Herbal teas including hibiscus and green tea are proven to help control blood pressure as opposed to a cup of coffee
  5. Dark chocolate with more than 70 per cent of cocoa is beneficial for the heart
  6. Needless to say, regular exercise including brisk walking which can improve heart’s health
  7. Deep breathing which improves oxygen consumption across arteries
  8. Reduce consumption of alcohol
  9. Quit or cut down on smoking
