My mother has cholesterol problem. What is the appropriate diet to reduce cholesterol? Please suggest as soon as poss...
cholesterol can usually be lowered by eating less LDL cholesterol-increasing foods and more LDL cholesterol-lowering foods, and by adopting a healthy lifestyle. The most important steps to following a healthy lifestyle are: 1. decreasing the amount of fat in your diet 2. paying special attention to the quality of fat that you eat 3. maintaining a healthy weight 4. quitting smoking 5. getting adequate exercise 6. reducing stress. All of these factors, taken together, can dramatically decrease your risk of heart disease and stroke by lowering your LDL cholesterol level and your blood pressure, and raising your HDL cholesterol.  Foods to avoid  Limit saturated fats and oils, such as butter, palm oil, and coconut oil. Instead, use soft vegetable oils, such as olive or canola oil.  Avoid trans fats or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. These oils go through a process that makes them solid. They're found in some hard margarines, snack crackers, cookies,and chips.  Limit fatty meats such as corned beef, , ribs, steak, ground meat, hot dogs, sausage, bacon, and processed meats . Also limit organ meats like liver and kidney. Replace with skinless chicken or turkey, lean beef, pork, lamb, and fish. Try some meatless main dishes, like beans, peas, pasta, or rice.  Limit meat, poultry, and fish to no more than two servings, or 140 g, a day. Remember that a serving is about the size of a deck of playing cards.  Limit egg yolks.  Limit milk products that contain more than 1% milk fat. This includes cream, most cheeses, and nondairy coffee creamers or whipped topping (which often contain coconut or palm oils). Instead try fat-free or low-fat milk (0% to 1% fat) and low-fat cheeses.  Limit snack crackers, muffins, quick breads, croissants, and cakes made with saturated or hydrogenated fat, whole eggs, or whole milk. Try low-fat baked goods, and use any spreads or toppings lightly.  Instead of using butter or margarine on bread, try dipping it in olive oil.  Avoid fast foods like hamburgers, fries, fried chicken, and tacos. They are high in both total fat and saturated fat. When you eat out, choose broiled sandwiches or chicken without skin, salads with low-fat dressing, and foods that aren't fried. Ask the server to leave off the cheese and high-fat dressings like mayonnaise. Foods that decreasse CHOLESTROL 1. Oatmeal, oat bran and high-fiber foods Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the "bad," cholesterol. Soluble fiber is also found in such foods as kidney beans, apples, pears, barley and prunes.Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your total and LDL cholesterol. Eating 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal provides 6 grams of fiber. If you add fruit, such as bananas, you'll add about 4 more grams of fiber. To mix it up a little, try steel-cut oatmeal or cold cereal made with oatmeal or oat bran. 2. Fish and omega-3 fatty acids Eating fatty fish can be heart healthy because of its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce your blood pressure and risk of developing blood clots. In people who have already had heart attacks, fish oil — or omega-3 fatty acids — reduces the risk of sudden death. I recommend eating at least two servings of fish a week. The highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids are in: • Mackerel • Lake trout • Herring • Sardines • Albacore tuna • Salmon • Halibut You should bake or grill the fish to avoid adding unhealthy fats. If you don't like fish, you can also get small amounts of omega-3 fatty acids from foods like ground flaxseed or canola oil. You can take an omega-3 or fish oil supplement to get some of the benefits, but you won't get other nutrients in fish, such as selenium. If you decide to take a supplement, just remember to watch your diet and eat lean meat or vegetables in place of fish. 3. Walnuts, almonds and other nuts Walnuts, almonds and other nuts can reduce blood cholesterol. Rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, walnuts also help keep blood vessels healthy. Eating about a handful (1.5 ounces, or 42.5 grams) a day of most nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachio nuts and walnuts, may reduce your risk of heart disease. Just make sure the nuts you eat aren't salted or coated with sugar. All nuts are high in calories, so a handful will do. To avoid eating too many nuts and gaining weight, replace foods high in saturated fat with nuts. For example, instead of using cheese, meat or croutons in your salad, add a handful of walnuts or almonds.

It is safe but addictive so if you're taking it for a long time you might be addicted. Which means that you might not be able to sleep without it so you should try and reduce the frequency to every alternate day and slowly try and manage without the medication if possible slowly taper it off over a period of time or replace it with another medications with the help of your doctor.

Hello , Smoking definitely is not good for health. It may lead to lung and heart diseases in the future. You need to stop it asap. So far as your pain is concerned, you need to be more specific with regards it's character, frequency, associated symptoms. Also, your current diet pattern. It could be gastric in origin and smoking may be responsible for it

Jallandhar is affected by pollution as much as Delhi is. Asthma might have been due to allergy. Yes lack of fresh oxygen is bad for lungs and heart, try to grow indoor plants and inhale fresh oxygen , chances of a heart disease are low at age 19 , still get the cardiac profile done along with x-ray chest. get back here with reports.

My Heart Rate is always above 100 is it good or bad? What can I do to make it Normal.

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
My Heart Rate is always above 100 is it good or bad?
What can I do to make it Normal.
Hi lybrate-user, normal heart rate is between 60-100 per minute. So this is okay. Here are certain foods that regulate heartbeat and keep your heart in a healthy working condition. 1. Yogurt: Yogurt is capable of heart palpitations because it contains loads of Vitamin B 12. The rich reserves of Vitamin B 12 helps the nerve cells develop and thus strengthen the nervous system to handle stress. 2. Banana: Banana contains potassium in high amounts. Potassium is an electrolyte that is essential for the communication between your brain and heart. Therefore, bananas are foods that regulate heart beat. 3. Garlic: Garlic is universally accepted as heart healthy spice. The allicin present in garlic helps to to stop free-radical damage in the heart and gets rid of bad cholesterol. 4. Salt: High heart rate is not always your problem. Sometimes, even slow heart rate can be troublesome. Having salt or salty foods can help your slow heart rate stabilise. 5. Nuts: Nuts are filled with healthy mono-saturated fats that protect the heart from shocks and keep it well lubricated. 6. Raisins: The sodium potassium balance in the body is extremely important to maintain a healthy heart rate. Raisins are rich in essential potassium and low in sodium. Thus they are one of the best foods that regulate heart rate. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
