You need to be examined by a doctor. He will if needed take ecg echo. Xray chest. Complete blood tests. No doctor should ignore complaints until they find a cause.

You are right. Prevention should be the mantra instead of suffering later on in life. Eat a balanced diet with good fats like a spoon of desi ghee/ butter + a katori of assorted nuts, seasonal fruits and vegetables suiting your constitution, keep blood sugar & bp under control if high, take minimal sugar & salt anyway. No smoking or exposure to pollution as low levels of oxygen damage both lungs and heart, inhale oxygen through fresh plants with clean leaves, do yoga and meditation to reduce stress but do take healthy stress which brings in fruitful results. Say no to junk food & packed food loaded with bad fats and lots of salt as a preservative. Keep working for self & for family but do find to do some charitable work also. Good luck.

Dear Please help your father take a strong purgative like castor oil. Once his digestive system has got rid of bad unhealthy food, make sure he goes on a soup diet for few days to help digestive system come to order. He shows typical symptoms of severe pitta and needs to make a total change in food habits. Exercise. Plenty of water throughout the day and totally avoid spicy, salty, ppackaged stale food if he wants to get better. Regards

Swelling legs could be due to ill managed hypertension. Kindly show me rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days bio d3 max 1tab od x10 do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do reply back for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Ertension. Anyway.

Blood Pressure - Can Acupuncture Help You Treat it?

Blood Pressure -  Can Acupuncture Help You Treat it?

Blood pressure problems trouble every third human being down the street; a thorough survey could affirm the aforementioned statement. While mild fluctuations can be tackled through medication, the secondary health issues triggered by high or low blood pressure can aggravate to make treatment a little problematic. Increased or decreased blood pressure levels could be indicative of underlying health problems and could also be the cause of severe ailments. Medical assistance should thus be sought at the earliest possible.

Many kinds of treatments are available at your disposal but it would indeed be wise for you to opt for an alternative branch of medicine that not only helps you regulate blood pressure in emergency situations, but also helps you maintain a level close to the optimum. Acupuncture owes its roots to traditional Chinese medicine and is a tried and tested alternative solution to the curse of increased or decreased blood pressure levels.

How is Acupuncture helpful:

  1. Acupuncture deals with the insertion of needles at different pressure points of your body to relieve you of pain or diseases of any kind; it is effective in controlling blood pressure levels by adjusting and re-stabilizing energy flow in your body.
  2. In certain cases electro-acupuncture has successfully brought down a sharp rise in blood pressure. In some other cases, this method has had side effects. Electro-acupuncture should therefore be a subjective mode of treatment.
  3. The changes brought about in your blood pressure after you have been monitored with Acupuncture are mostly gradual. The best part of such kind of a cure is that the gradual changes last for a very long span of time.
  4. Acupuncture is believed to kindle processes inside your nerves to further stimulate parts of your brain that directly control blood pressure levels. Research studies are being conducted to back up the positive effects of acupuncture with stronger arguments.
  5. The fact that acupuncture is a low- risk option makes it all the more viable a solution to tackle problems related to blood pressure.

My BP never settle down. When anything happens with me then the problem has started.
Hi bp not settling means what? do you have high bp and how much. Avoid getting stressed out, relax, exercise regularly, mediate and follow the following for a good lifestyle. Do not be overweight. Eat nutritious food, more salads and fruits along with other medium diet. Regular exercise is important and get atleast 7 hrs of sleep daily.

I have fast pain sometimes in my left hand side chest. It can symptoms of heart attacks?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
I have fast pain sometimes in my left hand side chest. It can symptoms of heart attacks?
Hi lybrate user-pain on the left side of the chest is an important symptom which indicates a number of things but the most dangerous of them is heart-attack. Heart-attack comes with lots of associated symptoms as well and not just chest pain. A left-sided chest pain which is associated with radiation to the left arm, palpitation, sweating, dizziness, blackout, breathlessness, lightheadedness - is more indicative of a heart attack. It's not necessary that all these associated symptoms will definitely occur in a patient of heart attack. But whenever these associated symptoms occur-they do definitely bring us closer to the clue that the chest pain is of cardiac in origin. Moreover any chest pain that is associated with increased pain on touching or pressurising a localised part on the chest wall is more indicative of a musculoskeletal chest pain. So please just don't think about heart attack and try to rationalise your symptoms. I hope my answer helps you. Regards.

Hello, I don't think having warm water with lemon and ginger will help to reduce gastric problem. However, having warm water with lemon and ginger in the morning will help to improve metabolism of the body which is really good. I suggest your father to continue to have both tablet for gastritis (whenever needed) and warm water daily. Warm water with lemon+ginger will not affect your father's kidney in any way. Nothing to worry about that. Cholesterol level can be controlled by regular exercise. Take care of your father. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

My husband died bec sudden cardiac arrest. May I know the reason as he was not having any heart problem and he was just 35.

B.H.M.S., Senior Homeopath Consultant
Homeopath, Delhi
The immediate cause of most sudden cardiac arrests is an abnormal heart rhythm. The heart's electrical activity becomes chaotic, and it can't pump blood to the rest of the body. Conditions that can trigger sudden cardiac arrest include: coronary artery disease.

Coronary Angiography is done to find the exact location of obstruction to blood flow in the heart. ECG and exercise ECG should precede this. Ischaemic heart disease can be treated without angiogram if you are not prepared for any intervention like coronary stent or by-pass surgery.

Sorry to hear about it accidental or suicidal ingestion of acid usually affects the lower oesophagus and stomach. Harpic is a commonly used toilet cleaning solution and contains hydrochloric acid as the active ingredient, whose ingestion can affect both the stomach and intestines in the form of gangrene and perforation. Symptomatic treatment aims at dilution of the ingested corrosive and specific management involves correcting metabolic imbalances, coagulopathy and emergency surgical intervention for severe injury and late sequelae. Whether she could be saved or not depends totally on the blood reports of the patient, site of perforation whether it is food pipe or stomach or duodenum hydrochloric acid posioning can be treated success fully, but before I can comment whether in your case she could be or could not be depends totaaly on her condition at time of admission kindly send to me a copy of all the reports and presciption and all the treatment charts of your wife provided to you by hospital as it is acse of poisioning without looking at all these documents its not possible to give a expert comment thank you mail me all documents from admission to discharge.

7 Risk Factors For Heart Disease And Ways To Manage Them

Cardiologist, Udaipur
7 Risk Factors For Heart Disease And Ways To Manage Them

Heart diseases also called as cardiovascular diseases include a wide spectrum of conditions which affect your heart. The diseases include blood vessel diseases, heart attack, rhythm problems, and angina. Heart diseases are currently the most common cause of death worldwide.

There are a large number of risk factors which predispose you to increased risk of heart diseases. Some of those risk factors cannot be modified (non-modifiable) and are not under our control while there are others that you can modify (modifiable) to prevent heart diseases.

While you cannot do much about non-modifiable risk factors (like age and family history) you can reduce your chances of heart disease by working on the modifiable risk factors. This include:

1. Smoking

Smokers have more than twice the risk of heart attack as compared to nonsmokers. In fact, even nonsmokers who are exposed to constant smoke (such as living with a spouse who smokes) also have an increased risk.

What you can do: Quit smoking or never start smoking at all. If you find it hard to quit on your own, consult an expert who can walk you through the entire process.

2. Obesity and physical inactivity

You are at increased risk of heart disease if your body weight is more than 20% of the ideal weight or if you are fat and obese. The most common reason for this is physical inactivity or sedentary lifestyle.

What you can do: start exercising regularly. You should exercise for 30-45 minutes for at least 5 days/week. Even leisure activities like walking or gardening can lower the risk. You can also set a pedometer goal of 10, 000 steps a day.

3. Unhealthy diet

Taking a diet rich in saturated fats, salt, and refined sugars can significantly increase the risk of heart diseases.

Things you can do: Include a lot of fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains in your diet. Avoid taking fried food which is rich in saturated fats.

4. High blood pressure

Hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the most common heart diseases risk factor in the western countries and adequate measures should be taken to keep it under control.

What you can do: you should keep the blood pressure under control through diet, exercise, and medications.

5. Diabetes

Diabetes itself can cause significant damage to the heart and along with other risk factors, it can have a synergistic effect.

What you can do: keep your diabetes under control by making some lifestyle changes like healthy diet, exercise, taking medicines as prescribed by your doctor and going for routine blood tests and health check-ups.

6. High cholesterol

The risk of heart disease increases as the total amount of fat or lipids in your blood increases.

What you can do: have a diet low in fat and rich in fruits and vegetables. Start exercising regularly. Get a lipid profile test done regularly to know your lipid status. Consult a doctor if the levels are too high for lipid lowering drugs.

7. Stress

People who take are prone to getting stressed easily and who cannot manage their stress effectively are at much higher risk.

What you can do: de-stress yourself by indulging in hobbies or activities which you like. Try yoga or meditation or join a club or class for the company.

It is not necessary that if you have these risk factors, you will definitely develop cardiovascular disease. But, the more risk factors you have, the greater is the likelihood that you might develop these diseases. Therefore, it is important that you adopt a healthy lifestyle and take appropriate preventive measures.
