5 Facts to Know About Your Cholesterol

How is your Cholesterol these days?

Not sure? Don’t worry because you are not alone. Most people don’t have any idea about their risk for heart disease.

What’s even more threatening?
Cholesterol can start to clog your arteries as early as your twenties in this generation. And this is a potential threat to major heart disease. It’s better we start paying an extra attention to our cholesterol.

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack Can be Found on Your Eyelids

General Physician (AM)

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack Can be Found on Your Eyelids

A health condition known as xanthelasma (xanthelasma palpebrarum), a sharply demarcated yellowish deposit of fat underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids, has been linked to heart disease. These yellow formations occur in the upper or lower eyelid near the inner corner of the eye.
. Br>The study findings were published in the british medical journal.
The link between heart disease and xanthelasma:
Both men and women can suffer from this condition, especially after 40. These yellow growths are the result of cholesterol deposits and indicate a higher level of cholesterol in almost half of the patients affected with this condition.

These growths are soft and painless and do not affect vision. In fact, people with xanthelasma usually seek medical help because these growths are unattractive. Aesthetics is the main reason why people decide to remove them, without considering them as a warning of a more serious condition, and despite their re-emergence after removal.
A recent danish research confirmed the connection between heart disease and xanthelasma. Professor tibjaerg hansen who led the team, came to conclusions that will change the way we see these seemingly harmless growths, which are ignored as irrelevant by both patients and doctors.

Men affected with xanthelasma are at a 12% higher risk of heart attack. Men aged 70-79 are at an even higher risk.

Women with xanthelasma have an 8% higher risk of heart attack, as opposed to those who are not affected.

It has been poved that women have a lower risk of heart disease, and researchers in this study explain that in this particular group of patients, xanthelasma allows accurate prediction of heart disease.

The research concluded that xanthelasma may indicate a heart attack, severe atherosclerosis, heart disease and death, independent of other factors such as high cholesterol, obesity, smoking and high blood pressure.

The presence of xanthelasma cases in each age group indicates an increased probability of heart disease, heart attack and death. Both men and women who have these yellow growths on their eyelids are likely to experience a heart attack, and maybe they will even be life threatened in a 10-year period.

It has been proven that men are more prone to heart disease.

If these yellow growths appear on your eyelids, it is important for you to immediately check your cholesterol levels

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.

Hello dear patient. High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hi. My father is 40 years old. He is getting the pain below the right side of chest. Please provide me with the reasons and remedies.

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Hello , having pain below the rights side of the chest is most likely due to liver diseases. You can get a liver profile blood test done for him to ensure that his liver is functioning properly and also get an ultrasound done of hus abdomen in order to rule out any swelling. Let me know the reports and I will be able to guide you further.

I am 54 years old and have undergone a bypass surgery in august, 2014. I wish to know what is the treatment available for peyronies and can it be cured with ayurveda?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Peyronies disease is connected with scars along penile curvature and nothing to do with bypass surgery. You may try such med which are used for abnormal tissue growth but ayd is for long term treatment but without side effects. Effect will depend on body response. If you need please send reports and diagnostic prescription via image.

Try to restrict the intake of salt alongwith increased intake of fruits and vegetables and daily exercise. Omega 3 fatty acids are good for improving the good cholesterol to bad cholesterol ratio. There is no harm in taking them, but they are not meant for bp control. If nothing works then consider taking medicines for bp control.
