My 15 days new born girl has been diagnosed with 2 holes in heart.6 mm asd and 5 mm vsd. Please suggest what should I do

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello thanks for the query asd upto 8 mm closes spontaneously in 80% of cases. Even vsd can close but it depends upon its location whether perimembranous, subaortic, muscular or inlet. Vsd usually gets symptomatic at around 1-2 months of age like difficult feeding, repeated respiratory infection. Serial echo will be needed to see whether size is decreasing and its affect on pulmonary pressure. Surgery may be needed. I request you to attach the echo report so that I better able to help you out. Regards.

High blood pressure is mostly asymtomatic. It's a myth that high blood pressure causes symptoms like headache. However very high blood pressure can lead to symptoms like blurred vision, neckpain, headache, shortness of breath or chest pain. Diet for high bp patients should be low salt containing, balanced for protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Fruits and vegetables are good.

My husband is 28year old, just in hos tegular check up his bp was really high 96/145. He does night shifts occasionlly. He is 6 feet 2 inches in hieght,120kg wt. How can i manage his high blood pressure without medication?

You should remain cautious about BP of your husband. BP should be checked daily or next day that is the prime condition. After wards we can think about dietary salt restrictions. Not only salt restriction but less and liquid diet free from harmful cholesterol should be given. Correction of Vitamin B12 levels by injectables or tablet can also be helpful.

No diet can be devised till you treat the problems with meds. And once you begin your meds you have to just tweak with your food because reducing certain elements of food can cause distaste. Depression. Constipation acidity etc. So please take regular medicine and take normal home food.

Your husband is most probably suffering from fungal infection. There are excellent ayurvedic medicines available for chronic skin diseases which give complete relief without reccurences if taken full course along with suggested diet restrictions. This occures due to lot of sweating so to prevent that he should take bath twice or thrice a day. He should keep the affected area dry by frequent application of abzorb powder. He should follow healthy diet such as lots of fruits vegetables salads and bland diet. He should avoid oily fatty spicy and sour food items. Avoid eating junk food and outside food. Avoid non veg and food made from besan maida and urad. Stop milk and milk products. Medication. Capsule neem 2-2 syrup purodil 2-2-2 triphala guggul 2-2-2 kaishor guggul 2-2-2 vidangatishta 2spoons twice orally with equal quantity of warm water. Take all these for 6 months. You can follow me up after a month.

My total cholesterol 387 mg/dl triglycerides 1767 mg/dl which is very high, pls. Advise me how to manage .

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
My total cholesterol 387 mg/dl
triglycerides 1767 mg/dl
which is very high, pls. Advise me how to manage .
Thank you for the query firstly I would like to know whether you have any comorbidities like diabetes, hypertension or thyroid problems. I shall answer your question in points. 1. A total cholesterol of 387 mg% is very high. It should preferably be below 200 mg%, if not lesser. The ldl component should be ideally below 100 mg% (though 120 mg% is acceptable). You need to start on the statin group of drugs as soon as possible. 2. A tg level of the 1767 mg% is risky not only for the cardiovascular system but also for the pancreas. Fenofibrate drugs can help in reducing tg. 3. You need to adopt the following lifestyle measure - avoid alcohol (can lead to raised tg level), avoid refined carbohydrate and saturated fats (ghee and butter). Do not take carbonated beverages. Adopt a daily exercise regime, and target for weight reduction. 4. Some precautions you need to take. Get some basic tests done like blood sugar profile (uncontrolled diabetes can cause deranged lipid profile), liver function test, thyroid profile, usg upper abdomen (to check for fatty liver or pancreatic abnormalities) and 12 lead ecg. 5. It is important to know the family history. Such high levels of cholesterol and lipid profile can occur due to familial dyelipiedemia. Sure that next time when you check the lipid profile, remain on a strict 12 hours fasting. Regards.
