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. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Can high blood pressure be cured without taking medicines. I have a bp of 150/90 and I am currently taking 1 revelol xl 25 per day medicine prescribed by my doctor. I just want to stop the medicines bcoz I am taking all this stuff from a year and now I am fed up from all this and I think it will have side effects in the long run too. So I just want to stop medicines and normalise the bp by myself through life style changes. Can this be possible?

I have high LDL cholesterol and know if you can suggest any homeopathic medicine.

BHMS

Increased cholesterol has to be addressed constitutionally. Take cholestrinum 6x 2 pills morning; It is better to meet a homeopathic doctor and take constitutional treatment. Take one teaspoon of flax seeds daily.

You are right , there are certain bacteria present in our mouth ,that lead to inflammation of heart muscles resulting in heart attacks , root canal involves instrumentation , besides own bacteria in the mouth , there is a risk of getting it through instruments too. Be very sure of septic conditions ,before you opt for this procedure.

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

I am feeling tired everyday my doctor say that is because my blood pressure is low 100/80 and my body is weak he said to me that I need to drink juce and eat food. Is 100/80 is too low BP? I worry that why my BP is low.

Clinical Cardiology, MD - Consultant Physician
Cardiologist, Surat
Hi. Blood pressure of 120/80 mm hg is considered normal. Anything less than that is considered optimal (even better than normal). So you do not have to do anything to increase your bp. Drink lot of fruit juices, soups etc, eat well so that you do not feel weak. Feeling weak has nothing to do with your bp. Take care.

All About Palpitations!

All About Palpitations!

What is Palpitation?
Palpitation is a feeling of awareness of your own heart beat. It is usually described as heart rate being either too fast (racing), too slow or a sensation of missing a beat.

Types of palpitations?

Normal (Benign)

  1. These palpitations occur as a response to physical or mental stress like exercise, fever, pain, fear, anxiety etc. 
  2. They are harmless and settle on their own once the precipitating factors disappear. They do not require any medical treatment.

Abnormal

  1. These palpitations occur due to some underlying abnormality in either the structure of heart or the beating of heart. 
  2. These can be dangerous and at times life threatening. They may or may not settle on their own and require some medical treatment.

Warning signs that suggest palpitations are abnormal?
Palpitations are abnormal, if they are associated with chest heaviness, chest pain, uneasiness, sweating, weakness, giddiness, feeling of black out, fainting, nausea, vomiting, seizures. Palpitations are more likely to be abnormal in people who have some existing heart disease and these patients should report to their doctor at the earliest.

What to do during palpitations?

  1. Stay calm. 
  2. Call for help. If u are alone avoid driving, use a taxi or auto, go to your nearest hospital/doctor and try to get an ECG during the palpitations. If you are helping someone having palpitations, if they faint, call for help, start CPR if they remain unresponsive and take them to the nearest hospital. 

Which doctor can treat palpitations?
Doctors who specialise in the treatment of palpitations are called Electrophysiologists. They specialise in heart rhythm and are capable of performing a variety of complex tests to identify and treat different types of palpitations.

Which investigations are used to diagnose palpitations?

  • ECG: Taken during palpitations and when the patient is normal is a very helpful tool. 
  • Holter: Externally applied recorder, which continuously records heart rhythm for 24 hrs. 
  • ELR: Extended loop recorder, is like holter, but it records rhythm for longer durations. 
  • ILR:  Internal loop recorder is attached within the body for recording rhythm for long duration. 
  • EPS: Electrophysiology study, is the most sure shot test to diagnose, identify and treat Palpitations.

What is EPS?
EPS stands for Electrophysiology study. By this test a trained Electrophysiologist studies the conduction and formation system of heart beat, to understand the source, cause and type of palpitation. It is a simple and safe procedure of 2 to 3 hours and can be done as a day care procedure (by admitting the patient for a few hours in hospital, with discharge on same day).

It requires fasting for 4 hrs, some standard blood investigations and is done with local anaesthesia and if required it can be combined with treatment like ablation in the same sitting.In the procedure Electrophysiologist take catheters into your heart to study and stimulate the palpitations and understand them. Once found they can use various techniques to stop the palpitations, the techniques are called Ablation.

What are the treatment options available for palpitations?
There are many options depending upon the nature of palpitations and condition of the patient: 

  1. Drug therapy 
  2. Cardioversion where either a drug or electric shock is given to stop palpitations immediately. 
  • Ablations using many sophisticated computer softwares 
  • Device Therapy like ICD (Internal cardiac defibrillator) 
  • Combination of all the above therapies.

Low BP 70/50 while standing and dizziness and fell down some times while walking. please Advise.
What you are detailing here is known as postural hypotension - or spontaneous fall in BP with acquisition of upright posture. This condition requires elaborate evaluation and us due to many reasons. You also need to know that some medicines cause postural hypotension and in case you are taking any such medicines- those need to be discontinued.

Yes your bp is high, get checked again. Reduce salt anyway. Salt in packed foods as salt is a preservative. Avoid excess salt as it leads to water retention and some swellings, and the bp will remain high despite good medicines. Get tested for heart also. Ecg and halter tests plus blood for sugar and lipids and get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here.
