It may be due to exposure to cold or he may be suffering from lower respiratory tract infection. Needs investigation to reach final diagnosis. Check for other symptoms if any. Meanwhile you may go for medicated oil massage followed by fomentation.

It must have been explained to you. Just to refresh heart healthy diet for every member of family- avoid bad fats like street food, burgers etc. Take minimum salt & sugar despite bp & blood sugar being normal. Salt is a preservative & present in every packed food. Avoid. Eat fresh. Take more potassium through citrus fruits like oranges, lemon, berries, amla, banana etc. Take good fats like a katori of assorted nuts + a spoon of pure ghee/ butter. Seasonal vegetables and fruits as much as one can accept according to constitution. Keep weight stable, avoid extra carbs & replace with salads. Avoid reheating and using same oil for frying purposes. Walk to health to digest food, to meditate & to keep heart in good shape.

Guidance for CAD, Heart Patients undergoing CABG

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Guidance for CAD, Heart Patients undergoing CABG

What is CABG?

CABG or Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting is a surgery done to improve blood flow to the heart. In most instances there is a fatty plaque (CAD or Coronary Artery Disease) in the vessels of heart which reduces the blood flow required for normal function. The plaque may grow or harden with time and reduces oxygen-rich blood reaching the heart. Lowering of the amount of oxygen reaching the heart may result in Chest Pain - called Angina. The plaque may even rupture and form clots on its surface. The clot formed may mostly or even completely block the blood flow - leading to Heart Attack or Myocardial Infarction.

In CABG, a normal vein or artery from the patient's body is connected to the blocked coronary artery. Thereby bypassing the obstructing plaque and creates a new path along which blood can now reach the heart.

What are other options for Treatment of CAD?

Other than CABG options for treatment of CAD include - Lifestyle changes, Medications, PCI or Balloon Angioplasty.

PCI is a nonsurgical option where the blocked artery can be opened and generally a stent is placed at the point of blockage to keep the blood flowing.

Goals of CABG

CABG is done to achieve the following

1. Reduce the symptoms (Chest Pain, Breathlessness etc)
2. Improve quality of Life and helps to resume a more active Lifestyle
3. Improved pumping action of the heart
4. Reduce chances of Heart Attack
5. Improve chances of survival

Who needs CABG?

CABG is a surgical treatment for CAD.

Your doctor may recommend CABG if other treatments have not worked or he judges it good in his clinical opinion.

Decision will be based on factors such as -

1. Severity, Location and number of blockages
2. Response to other treatments
3. Your quality of Life and severity of symptoms
4. Other Medical conditions that you might have
5. Your Age and Medical History

Medical Tests that may be required to determine the need are -

1. ECG
2. Echocardiography
3. Coronary Angiography

THE SURGERY

Outlook


CABG is a relatively safe Surgery. The safety of the procedure will depend on your age, existing heart function, and experience of the Doctor.

What to expect before

You will need to undergo a few tests to prepare you for CABG such as - Blood tests, Chest X-Ray, ECG, Echocardiography or maybe Coronary Angiography. Doctors that perform CABG are Cardiothoracic Surgeons.

Things to ask your Doctor at this Stage -

1. What you can eat or drink
2. What activities are you allowed to do (e.g. smoking)
3. What medicines to take (Share all the medicines that you are taking for any other conditions)
4. As the outlook for surgery is heavily dependent on the number of procedures a Doctor has performed - it will be a good idea to get information about his clinical experience.

If you have already undergone all the tests - surgery may be done on the same or a day after the admission.

What to expect after

You will require admission into ICU typically for 1 or 2 days, to monitor your progress better after the surgery. You will be given oxygen therapy while hospitalized. You may also be asked to wear Compression Stockings while your movement is limited.

After you leave ICU you will require admission in the hospital for about 4 - 6 days.

Recovery at Home

Things to ask your doctor before leaving the hospital.

1. How to care for incision wounds and stitches.
2. How to identify signs of infection
3. How to identify conditions for which you need to call the Doctor right away.
4. When to make follow-up appointments

Common side effects of CABG wear off within 4 - 6 weeks but may include.

1. Discomfort in area from where the vein was taken
2. Itching and swelling at incision wounds
3. Fatigue, Loss of Sleep, Loss of Appetite
4. Constipation

Full recovery from CABG takes 6 - 12 weeks.

Your doctor will advise you when you can resume specific activities. If your work is not too demanding physically, it is common to return to work after 6 weeks. You can resume sexual activities after 4 weeks and drive after 4 - 8 weeks.

Ongoing Care

At you follow up visits you will require to undergo tests such as ECG, Echocardiography etc. to see how much your heart has improved. CABG is not a cure for CAD. A complete Treatment will always involve Lifestyle changes, Reducing weight, Medications, and Cardiac Rehabilitation Exercises. Your doctor will prepare a treatment plan for you including these things. Be sure to pay attention to them as religiously as your Surgery.

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 . IN HYPOTHYROIDISM:--- Deficiency of thyroxine hormone leading to sluggishness, tired feeling, weight increase, slow heart beats, intolerance to cold, swelling of legs, feet and face, difficulty in concentrating and at times in speech.

At your age of 60 years you need to take stock of your abilities. You are no more young or capable of learning new things fast. Talk to other persons of your age and join some group of elders and talk about your gradually failing capacities. At the same time retain whatever you still have. Try and maintain active life style with your abilities. If you develop anxiety while learning new things, go slowly step by step and take the help from your children or preferably from your grandchildren.

Now my doctor has advised me 100mcg of thyronorm. Have taken it for 1 month, still have to get blood test done. No periods yet.

Dear Manish. Welcome to lybrate. You are just 28. Hypertension at this age is not essentially due to some physical diseases. This hypertension could be due to stress, anxiety and sedentary life style etc. Quitting smoking, physical exercises, avoiding stress and be calm and relaxed, restricting salt, eating a lot of vegetables and fruits etc can help maintain your blood pressure at normal level. You should work with your doctor and get his advice at any cost. Take care.

One of the best oils that you can think of switching to if you feel that you are overweight is olive oil. It is rich in monounsaturated fats which will help in lowering the LDL cholesterol and improving the HDL cholesterol in your body. •Daily consumption of one to two tablespoons of olive oil will do no harm to your body when compared to butter and other vegetable oils.
