Take care of diet, no medicine works unless fats are not given up in food. Continue with medicines. There are certain conditions in which high cholesterol is genetic and we have to take extra care about food. Try giving her 1) apple cider vinegar 2) fresh lemon juice + spoon of honey with a glass of warm water to be taken on empty stomach every morning 3) juice of pomegranate. These do help bring down cholesterol & blood sugar. Continue with medicines and get checked for total lipid profile after a month.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Only medicine could not help you alone, for lowering your blood pressure you also have to work on your dietary habits and lifestyle routine. Eat balanced diet, have fresh fruits and vegetables, drink ample of water, do exercise daily. For more counselling you can consult me on Private consultation.

When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing your salt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such as bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

Hi have noted all your details, A triglyceride level of less then 300 mg/dl needs not to be treated with fenofibrinates. Asian population have high levels of triglycerides due to our genetics.In case you want to start medication ,start with low dose of statin like atorvastatin, they effect triglycerides also, and are safer then fenofibrinates. 45 min of strenous exercise should be done every day, 30 minutes of walk at speed not less then 5.1 km/hr should be done daily avoid ghee butter peanut oil, instead take olive oil or saffola. Add fibres to you diet avoid paneer cheese ,red meat and egg yolk change will take atleast 3 month repeat lipid after 3 months.

Take 1 spoon of fenugreek powder or triphala choorna everyday in the night with half glass of water. In the morning empty stomach, take half teaspoon of jeera and coriander seed powder with water. Instead of tea and coffee, you can take milk with half spoon of turmeric powder regularly. Check your cholesterol after one month of following these measures. There will be good improvement.

Good morning Doctor Subject :- Pain in the left side of my chest (especially while deep inhalation) in the morning after a brisk Badminton match just before sleep yesterday which I played after a long while. Details :- I played Badminton 3 days back after a long while. It was a very brisk match. I just went out of my comfort zone and strained all my muscles. Very next day morning, I felt pain in almost all of my body especially left part of chest. Pain was more in that area while I inhale deeply. I didn't touch Badminton for 2 days and pain ceased. But again I played brisk yesterday night just before sleep. Chest pain started again, especially while taking a deep breath.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your pain is due to muscular problem - before playing you should warm up by mild jogging, walking, stretching for 10-15 min, so that the body gets ready for exertion while playing a vigorous sport like badminton - take rest for 3-4 days, do only normal activity - do hot fomentation - apply pain relief gel three times a day - take pain relief tablet if pain is more.

Hi i am having Cholesterol total 112 trig 168 hdl 40 ldl 38 vldl33 is this right or need some care sugar is 109.
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 . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Has a pain in heart when tense. Twice bye pass done.
Any precautions or r these symptoms of any other disease?
Hello sir, based on the short description it would be difficult for me to help you determine whether the cause of the pain is cardiac or not. Considering the history of bypass surgery, it's best to rule cardiac cause of pain. It's always better to find the cause and than treat the same. No particular precaution to be taken, except continuation of medicine prescribed and an active lifestyle with healthy diet. For finding the cause: if you are physically active, a treadmill stress test would be the best choice. If not a stress echocardiography should be a reasonable alternative. The above test should be particularly done if the chest pain occurs when you exert (being tense is a mental exertion) climb stairs and if there is associated breathlessness. Let me know if any clarification needed and I would be happy to help. Regards

Dear Lybrateuser, -Penidure is given to protect & prevent from infection if your heart was earlier affected by it -it is not mentioned by you as to what problem you had earlier if you had any -if it was associated with the heart valves then pain may occur on straining or exertion -get your self regularly reviewed & checked up by your cardiologist.
