Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

What is the best way to control sugar and high blood pressure? Will liver get affected by these health issues?
All organs including liver get affected. But its not over days or months. It takes years. Best way to protect your organs is to keep your sugar and bp in check by combination of diet, exercise and medication.

My periods has stopped about 4 years ago. But recently my periods has started. So I made my U. S. G. The report says that - uterus is bulky and anteverted showing a rounded hypoechoic solid SOL (measuring 2.58 Cm X 2.33 cm) in fundus anteriorly and to the left. Endometrial echopattern is central and of normal thickness (5.1 mm). Uterus measures 9.09cmX4.48cm. Can I have to go through operation or medical treatment will clear the problem?

Dear lybrateuser, -since there is a mass in the uterus it is causing you problems -the mass has to reduce in size which can be done by some non -invasive techniques nowadays combined with medication -if it does not show improvement then may have to be removed by surgery -consult a gynecologist on the forum.

The toxins in cigarette smoke thickens your blood, triggers plaque buildup, makes it harder for your blood to carry oxygen and increases risk of blood cloting. Carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in your red blood cells, decreasing your energy.

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

You have subclinical hypothyroidism. Its treatment is given in selected patients. If you have already started treatment, then I suggest two weeks is a short period to repeat the test because it takes at least 4-6 weeks for it to settle. Repeat it after 4 weeks and consult your doctor.

Sir, did you lift heavy weight, or sudden jerky movement can cause this. Suggest, lying on the side of pain, apply hot fomentation, 3 times per day. Does not look like major problem.
