Some infants are born with accessory electrical tissue in the heart that causes episodes of rapid heart rate. A normal heart rate for infants is less than 150 beats per minute. The new york times health guide states that wolff-parkinson-white syndrome is one of the most common causes of tachycardia in babies and children. Normally, electrical impulses in the heart are produced, conducted and regulated by a finite amount of specialized cells and tissues. In wolff-parkinson-white syndrome, there are extra cells and an accessory pathway, causing additional heartbeats that may nearly double the normal heart rate. Depending on the severity of the condition, episodes of tachycardia may be few or frequent. Diagnosis may be delayed if tachycardia does not occur during testing. An ecg may show an abnormality called a delta wave. Treatment options include medications or a procedure known as catheter ablation, which destroys the extra impulse-producing cells with radiofrequency.

When a coronary artery is blocked with a atherosclerotic plague it can cause heart attacks and you have to exercise daily and eat low fat content in your diet

Hi lybrate-user, if you are taking anti hypertensive medicines and still have high bp, you should not do very rigorous exercises. First get your bp under control with medications and then you may take up exercise as a measure to maintain it at normal levels along with medications.

High Cholesterol Level - Can It Cause Carotid Disease?

High Cholesterol Level - Can It Cause Carotid Disease?

Carotid artery disease occurs when an oily, waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the carotid arteries. These are arteries that supply oxygenated blood to your brain, face, scalp, and neck.
Carotid artery disease is very serious as it can cause a brain stroke. It, in fact, starts with damage to the inner layer of the carotid artery. To stem this damage your body starts a healing process and this leads to a build up of plaque at the point where the artery is damaged.

When this plaque ruptures, platelets are rushed in and these create an obstruction to the flow of blood to the brain. When the blood supply to the brain is cut off, which happens in carotid disease, the brain cells begin to die causing a stroke. This neural death impairs the parts of the body that these brain cells control. So, you can get paralyzed, become speech or vision impaired, have long –term effects like paralysis or even die due to a stroke.

Causes of carotid disease

  1. Smoking
  2. High cholesterol levels
  3. High blood pressure
  4. High levels of sugar in the blood due to diabetes

What’s even more worrisome is that carotid artery disease may not cause any signs or symptoms until the carotid arteries are severely narrowed or blocked. And what usually happens is that a stroke becomes the first sign of the disease.

How scary is that?
So, the next question that comes to the mind is - Can this condition be cured? Let’s learn more about management and prevention of the same-

Prevention
Lifestyle changes are key. Since hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes, sedentary lifestyles and imbibing too much fat are all risk factors, taking care of them minimizes the risk of carotid disease and strokes. Heart healthy lifestyle changes that include moderate exercise are a great way to prevent carotid disease.

Treatments
Treatments for carotid artery disease include:

Medicines: Sometimes lifestyle changes do not stem the rot. You need medicinal help. Doctors usually prescribe statin medications to control your cholesterol levels. These lower the bad cholesterol that can narrow your carotid arteries and cause brain strokes and damage. Statins are usually prescribed for people who have:

  • Heart disease
  • Those who’ve had a stroke
  • Diabetes
  • High LDL or bad cholesterol levels

Medicines like Aspirin and Clopidogrel to prevent blood clots are the mainstay treatment if you suffer from carotid disease. They prevent platelets from clumping together inside your carotid arteries and forming blood clots. Apart from these, your doctor may also medicate you for conditions that can damage your carotid arteries and cause strokes. These medicines are for lowering your BP, blood sugar levels, preventing the formation of blood clots anywhere in your body including inside your heart, and preventing and reducing inflammation.

Medical Procedures
These are used to open narrowed or blocked carotid arteries.
The two common procedures are:
Carotid endarterectomy: It’s mainly for people whose carotid arteries are blocked 50 percent or more. In this, the inner lining of the carotid artery that is blocking blood flow is removed.
Carotid artery angioplasty and stenting: Here, doctors use a procedure called angioplasty to widen the blocked carotid arteries and restore blood flow to the brain. A stent is inserted into your carotid artery to broaden the lumen.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, My mother she is 45 year old. Her blood pressure goes too down. Like its 50-85 now. What we can do? And why it is happening?

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

Low blood pressure has been associated with increased mortality in older people, but it is unclear whether the hypotension is a risk in its own right or just a marker of disease. Hypotension in old age is only partially explained by established cardiovascular disease and frailty. Get a 2 D echo done. If asymptomatic and all physical examination is normal nothing more to be done. If symptomatic or any abnormalities in examination or tests consult online in private for medication.

You probably have gerd, an esophageal disorder. You need to eat less, avoid spicy food, tea coffee and alcohol and eat at regular time. See a good doctor to get medicines. They certainly will help you.

Potassium need to be checked 2 to 4 weeks after starting Telma. Excess leafy vegetables ,fruits and juices call further increase potassium. So pl check the same once.
