Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Yes you can have garlic but along with that you have to keep an eye on your BP. Take salt a little less according to your taste. Have freshly cooked vegetables and fresh fruits in your diet. Don't starve for long hours.

Improvement in ef from second stenting depends upon whether your husband had viable myocardium. I am sure your doctors must have discussed this with you and tested for the same. Further course of action will depend upon success of second stenting. If ef doesn't improve he may need icd implantation in future. Hope your husband recovers soon. Good luck.

Neuro Physiotherapy in the First Stage of Stroke

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Neuro Physiotherapy in the First Stage of Stroke

TREATMENT PHYSIOTHERAPY IN THE FIRST STAGE  (FLACCID MAINLY):

Turning over from supine to side lying .

One of first activities the physiotherapist should work for in treatment is that of turning over to either side. The patient should not always remain in the supine position but should soon learn to use his trunk; i.e. his shoulder girdle and pelvis to turn over and lie on his side for some part of the day.

If patient rolls over and lies on the sound side, with the affected arm uppermost, the shoulder and arm should be moved well forward, the elbow should be extended, and the affected leg lie in a natural position of semi-flexion.If patient rolls over and lies on the affected side, the shoulder of that side should again, be placed forward with the elbow extended and in supination.

 This position helps to prevent shoulder retraction and the development of flexor spasticity with pronation of the affected arm.Patients clasps hands, he then raises arms. In this shoulder girdle is moved forward and upwards. Patient’s arms are then moved, with clasped hands to chest. With clasped hands, patient turns towards sound side keeping shoulder well forward.

Lying down from sitting

The physiotherapist holds affected hand of the patient, his arm externally rotated and extended diagonally forward at shoulder height, while the patient slowly lies down, using his sound arm for support. In this way, physiotherapist will prevent retraction of the shoulder and flexion of the affected arm. The patient then lifts the sound leg on the bed. If at all possible, he should then bend the affected leg at the knee and move it into the bed, the nurse giving a little help by lifting from under the knee.

Sitting and standing up

A foam rubber mat should be placed in front of the bed for standing. The therapist never be on patient’s sound side when he sits, stands or walks, since he can use his sound side. If he takes weight on his affected side, the patient will gradually overcome his fear of falling.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Telmisartan plus Amlodepine (TELMA AM) is a good and safe combination. The other tablet mentioned is Losartan + Hydrochlothiazide. That too is good. Doctor must have changed to newer drug for getting better control. But if she is not comfortable with that, she can take the earlier combination. Thanks.

I had very tiredness, sleepiness and left side chest stiffness. So I met doctor and been asked to take some of the lab test and heart related scans. After lab test they found heart is functioning properly without any problem and only hypothyroid was identified last two months before at that time thyroid level was TSH 6.26 mIU/L. After taking two months of Thyroxine 25 mcg tablet now the level became 3.36 mIU/L and Doctor asked me to continue the tablet another 3 months and ask me to see the again the doctor after 3 months. Now also some times I am getting tired feeling and compare to before it is better. Also the left chest stiffness and some little high heart beat is noticing. My question is can you please let me know what may the reason. Can you please tell me about the base root cause. Is there any more test I need to do.

Hello, Thanks for the query. From the description given, it is clear that you have most of the symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Since that is being corrected now with a TSH level of 3.36 mU/L, most of your symptoms will be in check. Usually when TSH is between 6 to 9.9 mU/l, it is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism and no treatment is advocated. But if patient has symptoms related to hypothyroidism then treatment is started. Some times there is another disease by name Hashimoto's Thyrpooiditis (HT) which also causes hypothyroidism may be present leading to thyroid deficiency. That can be detected by testing Anti TPO antibodies. However, treatment does not change. Now you will have to continue taking levothyroxine tablets. Thanks.

Ischemic Heart Disease - Risk Factors, Symptoms and Diagnosis

MD - Cardiology, PG Diploma In Clinical Cardoology

Ischemic Heart Disease - Risk Factors, Symptoms and Diagnosis

Ischemic heart disease is also known as ischemic cardiomyopathy in medical lingo. It generally results from weakened heart muscles due to previous conditions such as heart attack or other coronary diseases. The left ventricle of an IC patient tends to enlarge and gets dilated. As a result of this, the heart fails to pump an adequate amount of blood into the body resulting in a heart failure.

A doctor typically tries to find out the underlying cause of the condition and evaluate the extent of damage that has already happened. A combination of surgery, lifestyle changes, medication and other methods could be recommended to fix the condition.

Symptoms of Ischemic Heart Disease:

An early stage ischemic heart disease could not show any symptom at all. However, if the IC results from diseases related to the coronary artery, some of the common symptoms that are encountered include dizziness and fainting, unexplained weight gain, fatigue, congestion in the lungs, chest pain, swelling in the abdomen, sleeping problems, swelling of the feet and the leg, shortness of breath etc.

Risk Factor of Ischemic Heart Disease:

IC is typically caused by coronary artery diseases and heart attacks. Some of the other risk factors of this disease include diabetes, high cholesterol, long history of drug abuse, obesity, family history of cardiac diseases, amyloidosis, blood pressure, long history of smoking and bad lifestyle. Men are at increased risk of developing ischemic heart disease. Women above the age of 30 who is an active smoker and consume contraceptive pills are also at a high risk of developing ischemic cardiomyopathy.

How Is IC Diagnosed?

A cardiologist will perform a physical exam and conducts one or several tests to diagnose the condition. A blood work measuring the level of triglyceride and cholesterol is the first step towards it. This can be followed up by several imagery tests such as MRI and CT scan to examine the internal tissues. Some other tests that could be done by a cardiologist include ECG, angiography, EKG and radionuclide studies.

How Is The Condition Treated?

There is a step approach to treatment for ischemic heart disease. The first is lifestyle related. A healthy diet must be followed on a regular basis. Diet should be free from cholesterol, sodium and processed fat. Quitting smoking and drinking is a key lifestyle change that a person will have to undergo. In the medication front, a cardiologist might prescribe beta blockers, blockers of calcium channels, aldosterone inhibitor and blood thinners. The idea behind every medication is to ensure that the heart muscle works at the optimum level. If medication doesn’t work, a doctor might suggest procedures such as stent insertion, pacemaker implant, angioplasty and radiation therapy.

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

You need to get yourself checked what you are having is called is intermittent tachycardia / arrhythmia which means that intermittently your heart rate increases or the heart Rhythm changes which can be dangerous if it does not get corrected on its own. Or it can be an early sign of impending heart attack but to diagnose it you need to get an ECG done while you are having the rhythm problem or you can get holter monitoring for 24 hours during which if you have this episode it will get registered and documented. Also you need to get a complete lipid profile done as well as a echocardiogram and blood sugar levels to look for risk factors. Once you have done that you need to Consult a cardiologist with the reports.
