Hello. The deranged report is typical of hypothyroidism. Tab thyrox controls all the hormones i. E. T3, t4, tsh. Since t3 is low with the present dose, you need to increase the dosage of tab thyrox, but after consulting your concerned doctor. You can start statins for ldl and total cholesterol. Do follow proper diet and exercise regime along with the medicines.

My total cholesterol 387 mg/dl triglycerides 1767 mg/dl which is very high, pls. Advise me how to manage .

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
My total cholesterol 387 mg/dl
triglycerides 1767 mg/dl
which is very high, pls. Advise me how to manage .
Thank you for the query firstly I would like to know whether you have any comorbidities like diabetes, hypertension or thyroid problems. I shall answer your question in points. 1. A total cholesterol of 387 mg% is very high. It should preferably be below 200 mg%, if not lesser. The ldl component should be ideally below 100 mg% (though 120 mg% is acceptable). You need to start on the statin group of drugs as soon as possible. 2. A tg level of the 1767 mg% is risky not only for the cardiovascular system but also for the pancreas. Fenofibrate drugs can help in reducing tg. 3. You need to adopt the following lifestyle measure - avoid alcohol (can lead to raised tg level), avoid refined carbohydrate and saturated fats (ghee and butter). Do not take carbonated beverages. Adopt a daily exercise regime, and target for weight reduction. 4. Some precautions you need to take. Get some basic tests done like blood sugar profile (uncontrolled diabetes can cause deranged lipid profile), liver function test, thyroid profile, usg upper abdomen (to check for fatty liver or pancreatic abnormalities) and 12 lead ecg. 5. It is important to know the family history. Such high levels of cholesterol and lipid profile can occur due to familial dyelipiedemia. Sure that next time when you check the lipid profile, remain on a strict 12 hours fasting. Regards.

Hello dear 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. 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,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hello. Acidity occurs when there is excess secretion of acids in the gastric glands of the stomach. When the secretion is more than usual, we feel, what is commonly known as heartburn, which is normally triggered off by consumption of spicy foods. Here are some home remedies to cure acidity. - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead. - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday. - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity. - Coconut water is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity. - Drink a glass of cold milk - everyday. - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before going to bed. - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals. - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc. - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals. - Jaggery, lemon, banana, almonds and yogurt are all known to give you instant relief from acidity. - Excessive smoking and drinking will increase acidity, so cut down. - Try chewing gum. The saliva generated helps move food through the esophagus, easing symptoms of heartburn. - Eat Ginger as it aids in digestion. - A simple preparation of lemon water with sugar can be sipped on an hour before lunch to reduce uneasiness. - Have vegetables like drumsticks, beans, pumpkin, cabbage, carrot and spring onions. Medication: Take Biochemic medicine - Natrum Phos. 6x/ thrice daily ½ an hour after meals.

Cholesterol component needs to be managed not only through medicines but with lifestyle changes. Start practicing yoga daily for 45 minutes and brisk walk for 30 minutes. This will increase your hdl and reduce your ldl (bad cholesterol. Also eat fresh warm food, avoid pizzas and fast food. Avoid non veg too. Adequate 7-8 hours of good sleep is equally important.

I having left side chest pain while breathing. Same time it like I am going to die. On 6 feb 2016, I felt some kind of sensation in my body exactly where I having pain now. And its kept on coming for 3 days and I was admit in hospital on those 3 days. They told me it" I was having just an over tension attack you just take these vitamins and gusto pills" but I was not well until I consult to a psychiatrist. She told me" you just having an anxiety problem because of depression" and gave me pills to have for indefinite time means she told me to have those pill for 8-9 months or may b more. So started her pill and it was working very nicely after having those pill I feel comfortable. I thought she was my lord she save my soul but after one month again I had that attack but this time my mind was in control but my body was like I am loosing myself and I run to hospital they told me to relax and they inject me a gusto injection. But I wasn't relaxed and came back to home my body still in feeling those sensation and after 4 hour it stop. Then I went to a cardiologist specialist he told me you don't have any heart related problem you just have" Minor Effectiveness disorder" He gave one blood press controlling pill and one" TRYPTOMER 10mg" and it's working but like as my psychiatrist pills. Now I having that pill at night My cardiologist told me to have that pill every morning and evening but I am taking it only at night. But at every evening I feel like mind is not working my eyes see things bigger and disabled to concentrate on any thing until I have my dinner and that pill. Now from 3-4 days I also having chest pain on left side where I had those sensations. Please what's the problem or disease I have.

You have expained your problem in much detail, then also it is difficult to diagnose it, although at first it sounds like you are having a heart problem, probably its due to pericarditis or any other problem. But the best thing in homoeopathy is that on basis of symptom disease can be treated successfully, so frankly speaking I cannot assure you for cure, but my advise is to consult this problem from a good homoeopathic physician, so that you can at least have relief without any further side effect.
