Dear lybrateuser, - Do hot fomentation three times a day - do not exert, bend, lift weights, exercise till pain reduces - take pain killer tablet if pain is more - apply pain killer gel three times a day on affected area - do an x- ray chest to rule out any chronic problem, bony or soft tissue in the area, consult a doctor.

My cholesterol levels is high. Guide me to bring it in level. Please check my reports and guide.
Hi, Their is no attached report. You can only send report in a private question only. So if you want you can do that. Still high cholesterol can be decreased by taking fat less diet, if you have to use oil use olive oil only, do exercise regularly for at least 5 days a week for minimum 30 minutes. Check it again after 3 months, if it is still high than you will need medication. If it is very high at present, you will need medicine now only. Thanks.

It is a statistically proven fact that smokers and other tobacco users are more likely to develop disease, suffer miserably later in life and die earlier than are people who dont use tobacco. I have experience in successfully making people quit smoking through a customized smoking cessation program which includes counseling medications and support do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Two doctors told different %block in left ventricle need opinion for angioplasty.

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Secunderabad
Two doctors told different %block in left ventricle need opinion for angioplasty.
Dear Amrita, it seems you mean blockage on leftside arteries of heart. Its true that percentage of block assesed by visual inspection will vary if you show to different doctors. Its not exact. But whether its signoficant blockage or not can be told. For example 80% or 90% both will require angioplasty. If the block is in 50 to 70% range, or what we call as intermediate lesion, then we do a test called FFR, which will determine if a block needs angioplasty or can be managed medically. I hope your doctors might have explained in details. Thank you.

My uncle has got heart blockage even though he used to drink water in a copper cup early morning.

My uncle has got heart blockage even though he used to drink water in a copper cup early morning.
Who told you that drinking water from copper cup prevents heart disease. Heart disease results from 5 factors 1) sex - more common in males, because of male hormones /aggressiveness. The benefit is lost in menopausal females too 2) genetics- having family history of heart diseases. 3) vascular diseases- like hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, peripheral vascular disease and cardiac arrythmias. 4) lifestyle- smoking, tobacco, alcohol, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, and most importantly stress 5) thickening of blood (hypercoagulable states) - diseases of platelets, clotting factors, drugs, infections and other metabolic/disorders (less understood). So, it is necessary to go for frequent (once yearly, at least) health checks and follow a healthy lifestyle as advised by your doctor, to prevent the risk of heart diseases.
