One month back my father having chest pain and fever. Blood samples analysed and Echo carried out. In that heavy pericardial effusion seen. For next 3 days water evacuated from chest and around 1000 ml water evacuate. Its sample analysed and ADA 63 reported in forms of tuberculosis and no malignant cells seen. CT scan also carried out. And tuberculosis treatment started. In start, His blood sugar increased to 450 and now its normal to 150-200. At present he is taking R Cinex and Benadon tablets. I want to know if this treatment is OK or should I walk to other doctors. I can share all reports if you need. Is there any chances of any other disease apart from tuberculosis. At present his right hand paining very much and its almost one month but he is still feeling weak.

Thanks for the question in our country tuberculosis is a common cause for pericardial effusion. As per the reports that you have provided your father's pericardiocentesis was done and fluid analysis was suggestive of tuberculosis (with high ada). The treatment he has been put on is fine. Presently, he is on rcinex and benadon, hence I presume that his initial intensive phase of anti-tubercular drugs is over. The management duration is usually 6-9 months in respondent cases. You can get a check xray chest done to note for the current status. I would advise you to continue with your present doctor since the treatment provided is as per guidelines of management. Regards.

Kidney stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive treatment. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Pain relievers. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or naproxen sodium. Medical therapy. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) dietitian who will aslo prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan including dietary therapy.

How to decrease cholesterol
high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Eating whole some fruit is always better than drinking juices. Juice contains lots of added sugar. Artificial flavors. Fruit also provides you sufficient amount of fibrinogen needed for your body. Coffee as such is not bad in right amounts. No. You can eat eggs in proper amount. Remember always that excessive of everything is bad.

Dear lybrate-user 60% EF is considered to be normal provided there is no segmental weakness. Furtehermore sudden symptoms may be a cause of sudden increase in BP or sudden abnormal heart rhythm & both of them should be investigated. 24 hr ECG Monitor (Holter) or 24 hr ambulatory BP may give you the answer if it happen frequently. As of now you should consult a cardiologist & evaluate the likly complication of high BP.

Symtoms of heart attack and what step should we take.

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist

Dear, heart attack what is a heart attack? a heart attack happens when blood flow to a part of your heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Sometimes heart attacks happen when the heart needs more oxygen than the blood vessels can provide. This might happen, for example, during hard exercise such as shoveling snow. The heart is a muscle like other muscles in your body. It needs oxygen, which it gets from the blood in blood vessels. The blood vessels that bring blood to the heart are called coronary arteries. A blood clot in one of these arteries can block the flow of blood to the heart muscle and cause the heart to stop working right. If the block lasts for many minutes, part of the heart can be injured. The risk of a heart attack increases as you get older. Plaques (patches of cholesterol) may form in the arteries. This makes the arteries narrower inside. Blood clots may more easily form in a narrowed artery and block it. Both men and women have heart attacks. What are the symptoms? you may? feel pressure or pain in the middle of your chest? feel pain in your shoulder, arm, abdomen, or jaw? feel short of breath? sweat? have nausea? feel weak or lightheaded? look pale. You can have a heart attack when you are resting or when you are exercising. You may think you just have an upset stomach. However, it's important to get medical help as soon as you can. Don't wait. How is it diagnosed? the health care provider checks you over. He or she will ask what you are feeling and about your medical history. You may have some tests to see how well your heart is working. How is it treated? you may stay in the hospital about 2 to 6 days? your health care provider will give you medicine to dissolve blood clots? you may be given other medicines? you may be in an intensive care unit? you may be given oxygen to make it easier for you to breathe? you may need to have an operation to open up or bypass the blocked area of the artery. As you get better, your health care provider will help you work out a program to take care of yourself. How can I take care of myself? follow your health care provider's treatment plan? eat healthy foods that are low in fat and salt? try to keep your cholesterol at a normal level? lose weight if you need to. Stay at a healthy weight? begin exercise when your health care provider tells you it's ok. Increase your exercise according to your provider's directions? don't smoke? carry your medicine with you. Learn how to take it. It will help to have a list of the names of each medicine and how much and when you should take it? follow your health care provider's instructions for taking your medicines and having follow-up appointments. Get specific instructions from your health care provider on how to take care of yourself when you have chest pain, including? what medicines you should take? when to call your health care provider. Getting help right away when you are having a heart attack improves your chances of staying alive. It may also help keep your heart from being damaged.
