Get your pulmonary function tests done. If there is any element of obstructive airway disease, then appropriate measures can be suggested. Do regular exercises and yoga for improving your inspiratory reserve.

Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.
Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!
Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:
2 glasses of water immediately after waking up BEFORE brushing or gargling - helps activate internal organs.
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

Dear lybrate-user, Anxiety can occur as a symptom in medical, hormonal, drug induced effect, psychological or situational conditions. One needs to diagnose first and then treat. You can go a psychiatrist or pulmonologist. Doctors can order few tests after examining you. After making diagnosis, they may treat you or refer you to appropriate specialist.

An increase in heart beat might be due to a heart beat problem. Record an ECG to see if there is a heart beat problem when she has the symptoms.

Hi lybrate-user, I advise you to take some counseling from a psychologist regarding the situation you are in. Every individual is different and we are sometimes unable to change the situation and therefore its better we recognize the difficulties one is facing in the relationship and make adjustments and deal with better. Counseling and therapy can teach/equip you with such techniques.

How can I control lifestyle diseases like blood pressure, cholesterol & diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
How can I control lifestyle diseases like blood pressure, cholesterol & diabetes?
Mr. Lybrate-user, as you have stated these are called" lifestyle" diseases, meaning if we adapt a more positive and healthy lifestyle, these can be prevented. A healthy lifestyle means: exercising regularly, (everyday of the week, at least 1 hour), maintaining near normal weight, maintaining a bmi of 23 kgs/m2, refraining from alcohol, smoking, high fat foods, bakery items, pastries, aerated sweetened drinks, red meat, egg yolk etc. Also controlling excess salt intake. This kind of lifestyle is helpful in keeping those conditions mentioned by you.

See, so far cardiologist confirmed you that your heart is ok, rest I can say all depends on your food habits and digestive system. So try to take light food, drink maximum water just after wake up in the morning and at the bed time, if possible intake fresh alovera juice for 6 month in empty stomach in the morning and use liv 52 for the same and do not think more about that what happen inside, forget nothing happen, ok? concentrate your own business and enjoy normal life as you enjoyed before.

Can hypothyroidism cause tachycardia? My TSH level is 7.7 right now and I am feeling my heart rate is high from few days. Blood pressure is 100/70. HB is 11.70.

Hypothyroidism and symptoms and signs tend to be the opposite to those of hyperthyroidism (for an overactive thyroid gland) and consist of slow heart rate and low blood pressure. Neither of these signs usually produce symptoms in patients. Prolonged hypothyroidism causes metabolic changes in the body and may produce elevated levels of cholesterol. We are aware that some types of elevated cholesterol levels may produce or aggravate narrowing of the coronary arteries. However, as heart rate and blood pressure are also lowered, the complications of angina or heart attack are relatively uncommon.
