My mom is 63 years old and always complains of weakness. She has also high BP and has been taking medicines for it. BP is now normal but she complains of fatigue and weakness very often. Can she take iron and calcium pills which was prescribed in pregnancy? Please advise.

Hi, your mom's fatigue could be a result of the medications that she is currently on, to reduce bp. It could also be because of some other issues that needs to be evaluated. I would advise you to have her checked up by her medicine specialist/ cardiologist as appropriate. Simultaneously, she will have to check her dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other greesy/ oily & fatty foods. Ensure that she streamlines her lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. If she is working, she would require to streamline her occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps. Post your consultation with your doc, you may connect with me in private to discuss and come up with a natural treatment plan that suits your mother in particular and gives her a sustainable relief.

Early Signs Of Heart Disease

MBBS, PGDCC
Cardiologist, Delhi
Early Signs Of Heart Disease

There is a common misconception that minor pain or pain in various parts of the body does not indicate a heart problem. Some people are surprised to discover that not all heart attacks involve massive pain or a collapse that results in the need for an ambulance. In fact, some indicators are so insignificant that people overlook or dismiss them. If you have any of the symptoms below, you should see your doctor and ask him if they could be early signs of heart disease.

* Angina

This painful condition is sometimes the precursor to cardiac arrest, although it can also recur for years without triggering any more serious signs. Angina is the most common early warning of cardiovascular disease and can manifest itself in a variety of ways, including a feeling of heaviness in the chest, pain, a squeezing sensation, weight on the chest or a deep pain that causes you to catch your breath. Many people mistake angina for heartburn or indigestion, particularly since the pain is sometimes felt in other areas of the body, including pain in the shoulder, the middle or upper region of the back or even the jaw line. 

* Atherosclerosis

This is the narrowing or blocking of the major arteries due to the build-up of plaque from too much cholesterol. It is also referred to as hardening of the arteries. As the arteries become clogged, blood flow to and from the heart is restricted, forcing the heart to work harder. Most people first notice poor circulation that leads to difficulty keeping their hands and feet warm.

* More early signs of heart disease:

There are other indications of heart disease that may come and go for months or even years without an individual connecting them with any sort of serious problem such as cardiovascular illness. Among these are dizziness, shortness of breath after exertion or exercise, sweating, a rapid pulse and heart palpitations. Many people dismiss these signs if they are under fifty years of age, particularly if the symptoms come and go. 

* A family history of early heart disease or heart attacks

If there are other close relatives in your family who are contending with heart disease in any form, it could be a sign of genetic familial hypercholesterolemia. If a parent, sibling or child has been coping with cardiovascular health problems, they and the rest of the family should be tested for fh. 

# The silent signs of heart disease:

For some people, the early signs of heart disease aren’t felt or heard, but are discovered as the result of testing of some kind. High cholesterol is one such symptom that can eventually lead to more serious, painful conditions after years of being a silent time bomb. Many health care organizations now recommend that if any man younger than 55 or any woman younger than 65 is diagnosed with heart disease, their immediate family members should be tested for high cholesterol and familial hypercholesterolemia because of the risk associated with a family history of heart disease.

Talk to your doctor if you or a member of your family shows any signs of early heart disease. Don’t disregard signs of early heart disease in women, no matter how unlikely they seem. Early detection and treatment can keep small health concerns from turning into major health issues.

You stop smoking as this is due to smoking best age to stop smoking is before 40, in fact do not start all only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like nicorette and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

You need to have diet plan based on your bmi & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 kms and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

Dear lybrate-user -you can avoid thirst by taking ample water daily provided you don't have any existing heart disease. You should get ecg, echo and heart examination (with a physician/ cardiologist) done to know the cause of your problems. Frequently anemia or silent diabetes may also be the cause.

Due to overprotection I couldn't get through physical activities like running skipping etc. Now when I try it, after doing running skipping and all for 20 30 days, I am having short breadth and again when stop my physical exercises, after month or two I again become normal without any medicine doing only pranayam and breath based yogas. So what should I do next and what may be the problems? Should not I trey these things.

Ecg is not be all test to detect a heart attack. A drop of blood is tested from finger and put on strip shows 2 lines confirms heart attack and it is called tropnin test. It costs only 200/-. But for preventing a heart attack and to know about status of heart. Echo test is done for %age of heart functions. Total lipid profile and blood sugar tests to know risk to blood vessels and halter test to find out strain on the heart.
