Please control her carbohydrates and divide it equally throughout the day! which essentially means rice/ chapati/ cereals to be in moderation and for bp you need to control her salt. Apart from that she can have dhaniya powder with 1 glass lukewarm water in the morning, that will help her control her bp. If you wish to consult me personally, please reach out through lybrate. All the best.

My heart is blocked 60%. My medicines is for whole life or any other advice to clear this blocking?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

My heart is blocked 60%. My medicines is for whole life or any other advice to clear this blocking?
Heart has lots of collaterals blood vessels which take over the load of blocked vessels, reason some people claim that they got relief from anginal pain (blockages but no damage to heart tissue). Collaterals are like pipes which open up as and when required and gradually become full fledged vessels. You should take medicine for life, or write back the medicines so that some extra medicines can be deleted. Simple walks is best exercise that keeps heart pumping without burdening, the tiny vessels get gradually opened up as demand during exercise is more. Forget the vessel with 60% block if it is just a finding on test and is not causing any symptom. Some people claim that pomegranate juice does help clear the blood vessels-no harm in eating fresh pomegranate everyday, others vouch for benefits of haldi, you can use purest form by grinding your own at home and taking a spoon per day with warm toned milk, some claim lemon juice + honey with warm water on empty stomach every morning. All of the above are harmless home remedies which do help open blood vessels if combined with moderate exercise.

Ask her to control salt in food ask her avoid salty food like dry fish, papad, pickles, chips, etc ask her to go for walking 30 min daily. Ask her to take the medication regularly.

Coronary Artery Disease: Causes and Treatment

DHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Coronary Artery Disease: Causes and Treatment

Coronary artery disease is characterized by accumulation of plaque in the coronary artery that chokes blood supply to the heart. This plaque buildup usually starts with cholesterol accumulation and gradually other particles such as calcium and lipoproteins get deposited as well. Over time, the plaque accumulates, making the blood vessels narrow and choking the supply of blood. In some cases, if the plaque ruptures, it may lead to formation of blood clots resulting in stroke.

The symptoms of coronary artery disease are:

  1. Breathing difficulties: This disorder may lead to shortness of breath as the blood pumping mechanism of the heart is impaired; this usually results in fatigue and exertion. It is advised to avoid advanced cardio exercises such as the high intensity interval training.
  2. Chest pain: Stress related activities may cause intense pressure or tightness in your chest, resulting in pain in the middle or left portion of your chest. If you discontinue the activity, the pain would usually subside. In some cases, you may feel the pain in the arm and the neck.
  3. Heart attack: If the level of plaque accumulation is excessive, then it may result in a heart attack. It is characterized by breathing difficulties, pain, tightness in the chest and sweating. You may also experience pain in the neck and the jaw.

The causes of coronary artery disease are:

  1. Smoking and alcohol consumption
  2. Leading a sedentary lifestyle ups the risk of coronary artery disease
  3. Hypertension
  4. High cholesterol levels in the body
  5. Blood sugar problems

Treatment:

  1. Get your blood pressure under control: If you suffer from high blood pressure, then it is recommended to get it under control to prevent coronary artery disease.
  2. Quit smoking: If you are a habitual smoker, then it is time to nip the habit in the bud. Smoking is known to constrict blood vessels as it is a vasoconstrictor.
  3. Eat healthy: Eat a well balanced diet consisting of vegetables and fruits so that your body receives the essential nutrients to function well.
  4. Beat stress: You need to control your stress levels through exercise or meditation. Take time off work and do activities that make you happy.

Fitness for employment depends upon type of employment. But the question is why you have af in the first place. Is there any structural heart problem or simply af. Your af may possibly be eleminated. Please consult a good electrophysiologist if you have only af.

Yesterday I was suffering from irregular bowl movements means stomach was unclear even after two or three motions. After that I felt panic like high breath & high heart beat. I also felt like local anesthesia at my face and mouth muscles. I couldn't sleep whole night. It has happened time and again sometimes more and sometimes a little whenever I suffered from this stomach problem. This time it was severe. Why my mouth muscles and heart beat behave abnormal due to this stomach issue. Pls advice.

Please try the following: Eat a very light dinner without spices, fried foods and no foods that are acidic and heavy to digest (non-veg, rajma, chole, besan bhaji etc) Chew your food slowly and make sure you drink plenty of water. Make sure you have eaten dinned at least 2 hours before sleeping and preferably by 830 pm. His will reduce the pressure on your stomach and digestion before you sleep. During the day, make sure you are drinking plenty of water. This will help wash out acidity in few days. Get a lot of walking exercise and try deep breathing. These should help you. In case there is no change in health, you may have to undertake few investigations like abdominal sonography and endoscopy to determine extent of ailment. Do let us know how you feel in few days.

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.

It would have been better if you had mentioned the blood glucose readings both fasting and pp as well as hba1c% and bp. When diabetes is in control fasting should be closer to 100 mg. Pp 150 to 160 mg or up to 180 mg and hba1c% <7. Bp should be 130/80 mm hg. As regards eating a few biscuits, let me tell you, it is better to avoid them. At the most 2 can be aeten, the reason is that all biscuits give about 30 plus calories per piece and contain simple carb, hence increasing the blood glucose rapidly. Peanuts rosted ones without salt are good about 30 g per day. Salt intake is not good for a person with high bp. Potato chips, other packaged foods, are harmful, as they contain too much of salt and trans fats. Even if one consumes peanuts those should be brought from home, packed will have salt in them. You have not mentioned the weight, so so bmi can not be calculated. It should be <23 kg/m2. Thanks.
