What is your wt? do you have any respiratory asthma type of c/os.

But if without any reason, there is a sudden onset of rise in heartbeat, better to get checked by a gen. Physician r cardiologist, precautionarily.

Sir I am 22 yr. My height is 155 cm. Can I improve height? How to increase cholesterol? Please help me.
Hello dear High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

High Cholesterol In Eggs

High Cholesterol In Eggs

High cholesterol eggs may not cause heart disease at all

We all know that cholesterol is bad and can cause heart disease, and in recent years, eggs have looked like prime culprits on this front, with many of the most health-conscious among us opting to just eat the white and not the yolk, or else removing them from our diets altogether. Indeed, in the popular imagination, the image of a greasy fried egg is likely to be associated with other cholesterol-packing, heart-stopping dietary bad-guys, such as burgers and deep-fried snacks. But now it seems that the poor old egg may have gotten a bad rap all along, as findings published in the American journal of clinical nutrition by a team of Finnish researchers appears to suggest that the consumption of eggs may not always lead to heart disease, reports medical daily.
While the authors of the study do not deny that cholesterol plays a part in causing heart disease, the key - as is so often the case - would appear to be moderation.
 Additionally, the kind of food providing you with cholesterol can also influence the outcome.
Jyrki viranen, an adjunct professor of epidemiology at the university of eastern Finland, said that the risk of heart disease does not appear to increase with a moderate consumption of cholesterol: moderate intake of cholesterol doesn't seem to increase the risk of heart disease, even among those people at higher risk. Supporting the finish scientists finding, Dr. Robert Eckel, a program chair and professor of medicine at the university of colorado school of medicine, says that he doesn't even mention eggs when outlining the risk factors for heart disease to his patients, as he is more concerned about getting them into the habit of eating in an overall healthy manner than in concentrating on a few particular dietary details: our focus should be on healthy dietary patterns, not specific foods or nutrients. So while for many people eggs have for some time been crossed off the list of safe foods, it seems there are perhaps other more important issues we should be concerning ourselves with: 'i'm a lot more concerned about people eating more fruits and vegetables,' says Eckel in a report by time.
Part of the confusion over eggs seems to lie in the assumption that dietary cholesterol will translate into high blood cholesterol, an assumption that is not supported by the facts according to Dr. Luc djoussé, an associate professor and heart disease researcher at Harvard medical school: dietary cholesterol does not translate into high levels of blood cholesterol.
Dr djousse has researched the connection between heart disease and eggs and says that the current data do not justify worrying over egg consumption. The conclusion seems to be, then, that a moderate intake of foods containing cholesterol is not harmful in itself, however, doctors still strongly advise that we eat a Mediterranean diet, high in fish, vegetables, olive oil, and nuts. The general rule, according to viranen, is that an average of one egg a day is perfectly safe. In practice, this means that it's absolutely fine to eat three eggs for breakfast today as so long as we then opt for, say, fresh fruit and cereal tomorrow - what is important is that, over the week, our intake balances out to one a day.

Coronary Artery Disease Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

MBBS, DM - Cardiology, MD
Cardiologist, Hyderabad
Coronary Artery Disease   Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Coronary artery disease is one of the major killer diseases of the modern society. It is not a solitary problem but brings with it a multitude of issues including obesity, diabetes, stroke, and other metabolic disorders. A thorough understanding of what causes it and how to manage it can help save thousands of lives.

Causes: The circulatory system is mainly made up of the heart and a complex network of arteries and veins. The inner walls of these are lined with smooth muscles, allowing for free flow of blood. Gradually, over a period of time, given the density, the fat from the blood flowing through these vessels settles along the walls of these vessels. This attracts more fat, lipoproteins, and other inflammatory cells and so the process continues. This reduces the diameter of the blood vessels, therefore reducing the amount of blood supply to the target organs. If the target organ is a vital one like the brain or the heart, then it could lead to stroke or heart attacks.

Main causes for coronary artery disease include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, diabetes, and stress. Men are more prone than women, and family history and age puts them at higher risk.

Symptoms: Reduced blood supply to the target organ causes the following symptoms:

  1. Shortness of Breath: A person with coronary artery disease will feel short of breath and tired with most activities, even like walking a few meters.

  2. Chest Pain: A strong pressure sensation on the left side of the chest is an indication of coronary artery disease. Known as angina, it comes with stress and goes away once the stress is removed. It could sometimes radiate to the shoulder, down the arm, or up into the jaw also. These are classical symptoms of angina or heart attack and is considered an emergency. Of note, this is often mistaken for indigestion.

  3. Palpitations: A sensation where you are able to hear your heartbeat.

  4. Nausea and Excessive Sweating: Nausea and excessive sweating are also seen during angina.

Treatment: There are 3 modes to manage this.

  • Medications:

    • Aspirin to reduce the viscosity of the blood.

    • Statin to control the cholesterol levels.

    • Beta blockers to control hypertension.

    • Nitroglycerin for temporary relief of angina pain.

  • Surgical Procedures:  Surgical procedures including balloon angioplasty followed by placement of drug-eluting stents and coronary artery bypass surgery are done to manage more severe cases.

  • Lifestyle Change: Lifestyle changes including reduced fat consumption, decrease body weight, stop smoking, increased physical exercise, and reducing stress are highly important in preventing further damage.

Once suspected, coronary artery disease can be effectively managed and the extent of damage controlled using the above techniques.

Dear I don't suggest medicines for cholesterol. This is made in liver as per body needs. Don't disturb natural ways of body. Food doesn't alter blood cholesterol. Now creatinine level. Thus is slightly raised. Drink plenty of water so your urine is water coloured. Do this for 3 days. Repeat creatinine. If normal Be happy. Other wise call me. I will suggest you simple Ayurvedic remedy to correct this.
