Hello doctor, my had gone through a angiogram test and found that he is having 2 block. One is 75% and one is 50%. He is 52 year old. He is not a smoker or alcoholic. He workout regularly and eat healthy food. After his angiogram test the cardiologist says that these block cannot be removed through angioplasty procedure, because it won't be successful. The doctor is suggesting a bypass surgery. My question is do we need to consult another doctor? Also is there any other possible way to get rid of these blocks? Does ayurveda works? (he is a chronic diabetic patient, also he is taking insulin injection once in a day). Doctor please help us out.

Take a second opinion, if you are in doubt. The procedure will depend upon the angiography reports /cd. Yes, for a diabetic patient a bypass procedure is recommended, but it would be better left to the treating doctor to decide whether to put stent or do bypass.

You are very young with your whole life ahead. Make friends, go visit social gatherings, start a good hobby that will help you meet new people and mix with others who have same interests like yourself. Doing some exercise, even walking, will help in removing the body toxins that cause fatigue and depression. If you are able to, join some sport of your choice. Try to make it group activity. In ayurved, un-necessary Vaata cases depression and also disturbs BP. Please try this. Take castor oil (abut 35 to 50 ml). It will flush your stomach and reduce the Vaata burden in the whole body. Take care that you do not get dehydrated when you have to run to the bathroom at least 3 to 6 times. It may seem difficult, but this really helps. When the Vaata disturbance reduces, you will feel fresh, in mind and body. Stay positive. Nature is beautiful. Keep finding reasons to see the wonderful things around you. Feel thankful for all the good moments in life.

Chest pain can be a symptom of anxiety itself. You need to tell your age and other risk of heart disease like diabetes, high blood pressure etc. If you are above 40 years age then you should get a ECG done to rule out angina I.e. Heart disease.

Weigh if in pounds is normal. Chances are as much as in a careless person who smokes, is exposed to pollution on road, eats bad fats, does not eat fruits and vegetables, takes every stress to heart and has high bp and blood sugar levels. Take care. Instead of having anxiety disorders, it is better to learn about heart, practice the precautions to prevent and teach others also.

I advise you the followings for your condition: Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

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).

My mother had an elevated Lipoprotein (a) level of 72 5 months back. She also had LDL on the higher side. She was given statins for 5 months. The Lp (a) levels dropped to 48 but now have increased back to 58. Statin drug reduced the LDL levels but couldn't help with the Lp (a) level. What is the best way to reduce LP (a)?

Statin drug is loaded with side effects like dementia and memory loss besides causing liver failure slowly, some doctors are not giving it, others have reduced it to twice a week, still rest of them continue with 1 tablet /day. Ldl & lipoproteins can be reduced by diet (low in bad fats) lemon + honey water, apple cider vinegar and lots of exercise, yoga and meditation. Remember stress releases hormones called steroids within the body and steroids if taken from outside or generated from within does increase bad fats & sugar levels as a defense mechanism.

What is low blood pressure (hypotension)?

Diploma in Diabetology, Master of Hospital Administration, MBBS

Low blood pressure, also known as hypotension, is where blood pressure in your arteries is abnormally low. Naturally low blood pressure is unlikely to cause any symptoms and is normally nothing to worry about. But if your blood pressure drops too low, it can restrict the amount of blood flowing to your brain and other vital organs, which can cause unsteadiness, dizziness or fainting.

I have chest pain.what should i do?
Hi . If the chest pain can be pointed by a finger and if it worsens on taking a deep breath it is probably due to a muscular chest pain. If the chest pain is diffuse and you get tired soon then you should evaluate your heart and get an ecg.

Dear lybrateuser, -A hole in the heart is usually from birth, it is a small passage between the chambers of the heart(a developmental defect) which closes on its own but in some people it remains open -it can heal on its own which is a very slow process -if it remains open & causes problem then check up & surgery may be required .
