Unhealthy Heart - 5 Signs Of It!

Unhealthy Heart - 5 Signs Of It!

The heart is a muscular organ that helps to pump blood through the circulatory system by periodic contractions and relaxations. The heart is one of the most important organs of the body so much so that a single cardiac arrest or a heart attack can lead to fatal consequences. Even so, a heart attack is one of the most leading causes of death in the country. But there are some earlier symptoms that could alert you ahead of time. The following are signs of an unhealthy heart:

1. Sexual problems - Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most predictable reasons for cardiovascular conditions. Today, patients who are diagnosed with ED are also considered as cardiovascular patients. This is because the heart is supposedly not able to pump enough blood to the genital area. In case of women, reduced blood flow can hamper arousal and delay orgasms.

2. Snoring and sleep apneaIf one snores loudly enough to prevent their partner's from sleeping or resort to using earplugs, one may be at a risk of having a weak heart. Restricted breathing during sleep is connected with a host of cardiovascular diseases. Sleep apnea, a condition where breathing stops for a brief span of time, is linked with higher cardiovascular risks.

3. Swollen, sore and bleeding gumsSwollen and bleeding gums are not only symptoms of dental conditions but also of cardiovascular difficulties. Medical experts believe poor circulation of blood arises due to underlying heart conditions. Recent studies are focusing on bacteria that are believed to cause gum disease as well as plaque inside the arteries of the heart.

4. Heart Arrhythmia - Irregular heartbeat or heart arrhythmia is a common sign of a weak heart. It is characterized by both fast and slow beating of the heart. Restricted blood flow to the heart strains the electrical signals that maintain the normal beating of the heart. This is one of the common causes of coronary artery diseases.

5. Chest painOne of the most apparent signs of coronary artery diseases is chest pain. The cause of the sharp, clutching pain in your chest can be build-up of plaque in the arteries, which could lead to fatal consequences.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your blood gglucose levels (particularly PP) show that you are in pre-diabetic state. WHich means if you take proper precautions then you will be able to prevent it from becoming full fledged diabetes or postpone it. Your TGL is high, but not in the range that needs any drug. Dietary changes can control it. Your BP in spite of present treatment is not in good control. It should be 130/80 mm Hg oe 140/90 mm Hg But 160 /90 is high. Either increase in dose or addition of another drug may be needed. Thanks.

Headache, giddiness, uneasiness, sometimes vomiting sensation are symptoms of high BP, when levels are very high. For moderately high BP as mentioned above there may be no complaints. However once suspected you should get BP Check up when at rest with no prior consumption of tea, coffee or smoking. If on periodical tests the readings are above 150 mm Hg systolic and above 90 mm Hg Diastolic as confirmed by a doctor you may have to reduce excessive salt intake and some medications, subsequent follow up and regular monitoring.

Greying of hair before the age of 35 years is referred to as premature greying. It has seen an increase over the past several years, and the main reasons could be stress or anxiety, improper diet, overuse of shampoosand conditioners or, of course, it could be inyour genes. There have been cases of children as young as 8-10 years of age reporting greying of hair. The premature greying of hair can be successfully treated with Homeopathic medicines. The Homeopathic remedies for premature greying of hair are made of natural substances and are free from any side effects. The Homeopathic medicines act in the most gentle and natural way to halt the process of greying of hair.

Nothing to worry. If pain perssists just get Treadmill Test done. Also you can get a 2D Echocardigram done to rule out any Structural Valve problem. If both the tests are normal nothing to worry. Also exercise to reduce weight ic you have BMI >24. You can have low fat diet and low carb diet. Hope this answers your concern. Have a healthy day.

Hi you should start taking a diet less in oil and saturated fats. Avocado oil carries the monounsaturated fat that protects heart by reducing LDL cholesterol levels and hence can be used in cooking. Add oatmeal and high fiber foods in your diet like beans, apples, barley, pears etc. Non vegetarians can turn towards having fish as fish contains omega 3 that has many benefits for heart. Even, walnuts, almonds and other nuts can improve blood cholesterol.

How Does The Heart's Electrical Conduction System Work?

M.B.B.S. , PG Diploma In Clinical Cardiology

How Does The Heart's Electrical Conduction System Work?

The heart's electrical conduction system plays a very important role in cardiovascular functioning. Also known as the atrioventricular (AV) conduction system, it regulates and controls the timing of the heartbeat.

How does the heart's electrical conduction system work?

There is a collection of electrical cells in the upper right atrium of the heart known as the sinoatrial (SA) node which acts as a natural pacemaker and generates electrical signals. These signals travel through specialized electrical pathways and stimulate the muscular walls of the heart to contract in a rhythmic manner. This gives rise to the heartbeat that pulses at a specific frequency every minute.

What is the effect of fluctuations in electrical activity on the heart?

The standard heart rate in human being ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. It slows down when a person sleeps and speeds up when one experiences physical or emotional heightening. These fluctuations are triggered by the brain or other systems of the body and signal the SA node to generate charges more rapidly or slowly. This leads to spikes and drops in the heart rate, depending on the nature of the situation.

What happens when there is dysfunction in the heart's electrical activity?

When the heart's electrical conduction system does not function properly, it leads to the occurrence of a condition known as arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. This happens when electrical impulses are generated in an irregular manner and causes tachycardia (rapid heartbeats) or bradycardia (slow heartbeats) which takes place in jarring infrequent tempos.

What causes fluctuations in the heart's electrical activity?

There are various kinds of triggers that cause the heart rate to fluctuate. The exact nature of fluctuation also depends on the type of trigger. A few everyday examples of these causes are as follows:

  • Exercise and strenuous physical activity increases electrical activity as the heart is required to beat faster so as to increase the supply of blood and oxygen to the muscles.
  • Sleep and rest reduce heart rate as the body is not needed to exert itself.
  • Release of adrenaline into the bloodstream causes the heart rate to spike up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

It will not be possible to comment on the ECG, without looking at the graph and knowing your symptoms and history. But what you can do is consult a cardiologist near you with this ECG graph and your symptoms and follow their advice.

7 Ways To Control Hypertension

7 Ways To Control Hypertension

Hypertension, which is also known as high blood pressure is a prominent factor that is responsible for the development of many serious health issues like cardiac disorder, chronic kidney diseases, vision loss and stroke. The dominant causes of hypertension include troubled lifestyle style, genetics, environmental factors and internal imbalances. You cannot possibly control the chances of suffering from hypertension but you can always prevent and minimize the risk of the problems that are associated with hypertension.

The following are some lifestyle tips that can help you to manage and minimize the risk of developing hypertension:

  • Maintain a healthy body weight: Weight plays a crucial role in the prevention of hypertension. People who are obese run the risk of developing hypertension. It is advisable to lose excessive body fat to maintain an ideal body weight. A well-maintained body weight minimizes the risk of hypertension.
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet: Unhealthy food intake is a primary factor that causes hypertension. Eating a healthy and balanced diet enables you to manage your blood pressure effectively. Incorporate plenty of fresh fruits and leafy vegetables, especially the ones rich in potassium. Limit excess intake of calories, sugar, and fat as they tend to increase the risk of hypertension.
  • Reduce consumption of salt: Higher sodium intake increases your blood pressure level. Avoid high-sodium processed and packaged foods as they are high in sodium content. A low-sodium diet enables you to keep your blood pressure normal.
  • Exercise regularly: An active lifestyle is known to lower the risk of hypertension. Make sure to indulge yourself into some physical activities on a daily basis.
  • Limit the alcohol intake: Excessive intake of alcohol can raise your blood pressure level. Limit your alcohol consumption to minimize the chances of hypertension.
  • Monitor your blood pressure: Monitor your blood sugar level on a regular basis. Hypertension usually does not show any symptoms. If your blood pressure ranges between 120-139/80-89 millimeters of mercury it is an indication that you run a higher risk of developing hypertension. A raise in blood pressure demands moderation of lifestyle practices and controlled food intake.
  • Manage stress level: Excessive stress and anxiety are not good for your blood pressure. Severe stress is known to shoot up your blood pressure level which leads to the development of many other health related complications including the improper functioning of crucial organs like heart and kidney. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Increase heart beat can be due to various physiological conditions like heavy physical exercise, anxiety induce, stress, high caffeine intake and also due to some pathological conditions like thyroid disorder, cardiac issues, anemia and more. So to rule out some blood test and additional investigations like ecg, echocardiogram, chest xray etc need to be done to find out underlying cause. Along with it reduce your caffeine intake, quit smoking if you do so, perform relaxing technigues to remain stress free.

Hi Lybrate user, It seems that you are sufferring from anxiety disorder with hypochondriasis. That means excessive preoccupation with own health. When minor illness seems very big. You have to take antianxiety antidepressant medications such as SSRI selective seretonin reuptake inhibitor. Side by side you have to do yoga. Pranayam.meditation regularly. Focus on positive sides of your life. Delete negative thoughts. It is very much normal to have physical illness. But do not let it rule over you. Afterall none of us will escape alive at the end! so enjoy the moments. Take supportive medicines.

Hi Lybrate user yes. Early morning palpitation may be a feature of chronic ob structive sleep apnea. That may be due to chronic nasal blockage. Due to sinusitis, or deviated nasal septum or nasal polyp may be the cause. Is there snoring during your sleep? If yes. Then go for x ray nose and paranasal sinuses. That may diagnose deviated nasal septum or polyp or sinusitis. If palpitation associated with reeling of head and/or chest pain. Then go for 24 hour holter monitoring.

My age is 25 years. My bp remains very low 93/54 n pulse rate is 89. every time it is low.
Dear User, Please get a routine blood check up but before that I want to tell you that many people have low bp. But you have sufficient energy and no problems associated with it. Then just take a soluntion of salt and sugar (very less amount) daily for 7 days and with that have plenty of water and proper diet. If within 7 days you see your bp getting normal than well and good if still not then get a complete blood count done and consult a nearby Homoeopathic doctor.

Hi Ideal blood pressure for your age is 120/80 mmHg. 120 is systolic blood pressure .which depends mainly on cardiac contraction force and heart rate. 80 is diastolic pressure. And it represents the resistance of blood vessels. Systolic pressure is also increased in anxiety and tension state. And it also normalises with some relaxation techniques. But increase in diastolic pressure is not desirable at all. So if your blood pressure is 130/90 for more than 3 occassions in a month. Then you need to modify your lifestyle. Such as doing Yoga. Pranayam.brisk walking for 30 mnts everyday. Cut off carbohydrate and lipid level in your diet. Do all this for 3 months. If tjen also BP is same .then go for antihypertensive medication.
