It is likely that you are suffering from Vaata and a degree of indigestion / acidity. Take a strong purgative like castor oil (30 to 50 ml) early morning with plenty of hot water. Your stomach will flush out gas, toxins, acidity and Vaata from the body. This should help. Head hurts even when you do not get proper sleep or have a bad posture. Dehydration should be avoided. Regards.

MD - Consultant Physician

Antilipidemic drus for such complicated case is to be treated carefully. Lipidis initially may be controlled by ezetimide & fibrates & diet, exercise etc. If not controlled then for hepatitis b virus is to be treated with nucleotide antiviral drugs with low dose of statin may be given.

All oils are the same. But eat in a very small quantity. You are extremely over weight. If all your members are like you, there is a need to reduce oil intake drastically. Otherwise you will get what you want to avoid.

What diet plan should a high blood pressure along diabetic, patient should follow? I mean what should he must avoid and eat.

M.B.B.S. , PG Diploma In Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Great importance is being given to lifestyle modifications, because of definite benefits observed in patients who follow this. Lifestyle changes have advantages not only in the control of hypertension, but also in the management of dyslipidemia and diabetes. In a prehypertensive individual, the following things have to be taken care of: 1) Tobacco: While the major effects of tobacco are in the development of atherosclerotic heart disease, its role in the management of hypertension cannot be forgotten. The pressure effect of tobacco is so strong that the blood pressure comes down immediately after stoppage of smoking. Tobacco is one of the agents that induce clustering of risk factors. 2) Body weight: Lowering of excess body weight can lower blood pressure. In one of the studies, it was found that decrease of 1 kg of body weight is associated with an average fall of 1.6 mmHg. Indeed, in many instances, it would be possible to discontinue medications after effective weight control. 3) Dietary Sodium: Restriction of dietary sodium is one of the most useful methods of controlling hypertension. This fact should be emphasized, because of the increasing use of fast foods, which have high salt content. It is admitted that it cannot be achieved easily. Norman Kaplan, a renowned cardiologist, gives the following practical suggestions. Do not add salt during cooking or at the table. Sodium consumption should be less than 1500 mg per day, an average individual consumes 8 to 10 times more sodium than required. If salt is desired, add half sodium and half potassium chloride preparations. Avoid fast foods. Be careful about the sodium content of some medications and specifically read the labels indicating sodium content in your food. 4) Alcohol: Alcohol consumption of more than 30 mL of ethanol is found to increase blood pressure. Hence, moderation is recommended. One of the major hazards of drinking is the usual associated consumption of high salt savories, which is an unseen source of salt. Instead, use less salted food. 5) Exercise: Regular physical exercise has been found to induce reduction in blood pressure. Strenuous exercise should be done 45 minutes a day for at least six days a week. As for your diabetes your diet should consist of 60% carbohydrate 30% protein and rest fats you should take only carbohydrates with low glycemic index.

Heart beat & blood pressure are independent. But heart beat may or may not increase with increase in blood pressure. But high blood pressure can cause difficulty in breathing.

Hello, My uncle suffered a ischemic stroke one month ago. Now, he is unable to walk by himself without support. He also has severe pain and swelling due to hemorrhoids and the general surgeon asked him to do an operation urgently. The issue here is that he he is taking Aspirin since the stroke. So, is it advisable to go for the surgery keeping in mind that the surgery requires stopping aspirin two days before the surgery and three days after, hence a total of 6 days without aspirin. Waiting for your quick response. Thank you!

General Physician, Karimnagar
Hello, thanks for using Lybrate. as patient is on aspirin and suffered ischemic stroke it is risky to interrupt aspirin therapy, but when there is another problem which is unbearable we need to do operation. Try to control it medically but if it is sever then we need to take risk and do surgery.

High triglycerides and 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,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Here's what you can do: Eat healthy foods. Eat a healthy diet. Try the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. A lower sodium level — 1,500 milligrams (mg) a day — is appropriate for people 51 years of age or older, and individuals of any age who are black or who have hypertension, diabetes or chronic kidney disease. Otherwise healthy people can aim for 2,300 mg a day or less. While you can reduce the amount of salt you eat by putting down the saltshaker, you generally should also pay attention to the amount of salt that's in the processed foods you eat, such as canned soups or frozen dinners. Maintain a healthy weight. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. If you're overweight, losing even 5 pounds (2.3 kilograms) can lower your blood pressure. Increase physical activity. Regular physical activity can help lower your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems and keep your weight under control. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends that you get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity, or a combination or moderate and vigorous activity. Aim to do muscle-strengthening exercises at least two days a week. Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women of all ages and men older than age 65, and up to two drinks a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. If you smoke, ask your doctor to help you quit. Manage stress. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Home blood pressure monitoring can help you keep closer tabs on your blood pressure, show if medication is working, and even alert you and your doctor to potential complications. Home blood pressure monitoring isn't a substitute for visits to your doctor, and home blood pressure monitors may have some limitations. Even if you get normal readings, don't stop or change your medications or alter your diet without talking to your doctor first. If your blood pressure is under control, you may be able to make fewer visits to your doctor if you monitor your blood pressure at home. Practice relaxation or slow, deep breathing. Practice taking deep, slow breaths to help relax. There are some devices available that promote slow, deep breathing. However, it's questionable whether these devices have a significant effect on lowering your blood pressure.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Avoid bending, lifting weight, exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation of the area twice a day - apply pain relief cream lightly on affected area three times a day - if still pain persists then take pain relief tablet twice a day after meals - get an x- ray chest done to know the exact cause.

How to increase memory. I am 52years old and forgetting important things. I am also a heart patient and two stunts implanted in my arteries.

M.Sc. - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Coimbatore
It might be due to early onset of dementia or you might have been in depression secondary to your cardiac problems. Analyze yourself properly that you are suffering with the symptoms of depression or it is purely forgetting. A few tips to reduce memory deterioration in case of dementia is that a research says that taking almonds on a regular basis will keep your brain healthy that in turn stops fading memory. Taking a spoon of turmeric powder in a glass of water or in any form of food will help your memory stops fading.

Blood pressure arises from the resistance in your blood vessels to the natural flow of blood within them. So if you an maintain a diet that is healthy in fresh foods rich in vitamins, cow ghee, anti oxidants and alkaline foods, you can safeguard your overall health as well as BP. Ideally, breakfast should be or 2 large portions of fresh fruit of your choice and home made nashta with lots of dahi. Have a healthy Diwali. Best wishes.

I'm loosing my hair and I have hypo thyroid, gout and palpitations.Please tell.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
In hypothyroidism hair fall is a common occurrence. It is usually the last symptom to be corrected after hypothyroidism is fully controlled. When tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units, then it is considered as good control. So please check tsh levels and see that those are brought to the expected value. Gout and palpitations are unconnected to hypothyroidism.

Facts Every Woman Should Know About Heart Disease

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Facts Every Woman Should Know About Heart Disease

Heart disease doesn't affect all women in the same way and neither does it have the same warning signs as heart diseases in men. For women, heart disease is a bigger threat than breast cancer. Cardiovascular diseases also kill more women than men as the disease progresses differently in men and women. Here are a few things you should know about heart diseases.

Women have more atypical symptoms of heart attacks: The classic symptoms of heart attacks are pain in the left arm, chest pain and heart palpitations. Though women may exhibit these symptoms, they are more likely to have atypical symptoms. These include nausea, stomach aches, pain in the shoulders and upper back and extreme fatigue.

Preeclampsia and gestational diabetes can increase risks of heart disease: Even though your blood pressure may go back to normal and conditions like preeclampsia or gestational diabetes may go away post pregnancy, their effects linger on. The risk of heart disease for a woman who suffered from preeclampsia doubles while gestational diabetes can cause glucose intolerance leading to obesity or other such conditions which are risk factors for heart diseases.

Hot flashes could be a sign of heart problems: Hot flashes are usually associated with menopause but may also be a symptom of underlying heart problems. Hot flashes that occur after a exerting a strenuous effort on something can be a sign of angina in women.

Men and women do not face equal risks: Traditional risks to heart diseases such as cholesterol, obesity and high blood pressure affect both men and women but some factors such as diabetes, stress, depression and smoking affect women more than they affect men. Since women tend to lead a more sedentary lifestyle than men, a lack of exercise also affects them more than it affects men. In addition, a low level of estrogen can also increase the risk of cardiovascular conditions. This is usually seen after menopause.

Metabolic syndrome increase your risk of getting a stroke:

There are five metabolic risk factors for heart disease. If you have 3 or more of them, it is termed as metabolic syndrome. These risk factors are:

  1. A waist circumference of more than 35". This is also called abdominal obesity
  2. A triglyceride level higher than 150 mg/dL
  3. A low level of good cholesterol i.e. HDL cholesterol that is less than 50mg/dL
  4. High blood pressure
  5. High blood sugar. This could also be a sign of diabetes.

While some factors like genetics are out of our control, most of these factors can be controlled by conscious lifestyle changes. Your doctor may also prescribe medication for the same. Heart disease can occur at any time so do not take your heart for granted.

Hi sir. Am 28 years old male. One or another problem I been facing since 5 years. I has chest pain and operated for ASD in 2014 and operated for sinus problem on 2015. In between this faced problem in working more and standing for even 20 to 30 minutes.. Dr. suggested for cod liver tablets I took those. And problem had reduced temporarily. I was unable to stand for more time, unable to work more due to tiredness. I masturbate 3 or 4 times in a week and Since 5 years I have been suffering from seasonal allergy for which I recently started homeopathy medicine. But recently since one month I have been suffering from erectile dysfunction. before that I was good enough on bed. I worried lot as my marriage is near. It erects but not like before and fail to becomes harden. I have feelings and urge of sex but it is not hardening and size of penis wen it erects also become small compare to one months ago's erected size.

Reasonable workload. No more tension.. Please suggest me to gain previous situation.

Hi, this is a normal situation that you need not worry about. You cannot expect your body to remain as young as it was during adolescence. This has mostly happened due to anxiety surrounding the performance and marriage. Keep your mind clear and focused, and drink 1 glass of milk daily to prevent this problem and you will surely do well. Take care.
