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 green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Can you please tell causes of heartattack and what are the first aid if any suffer immediate heartattack.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, -Heart attack occurs due to blockage of the blood vessels supplying blood to the heart, the blockage occurs due to formation of plaque (fatty deposit) in the lining of the blood vessel, these plaques rupture & then can block a blood vessel -the deposits develop due to unhealthy lifestyle, more unhealthy fats in diet, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes, high cholesterol, familial history, stress, obesity -the first aid is to make the patient lye down, loosen tight clothing, open windows for air circulation, give a tab of aspirin if available to chew , rush the patient to a medical set up with cardiac care unit as soon as possible preferably in a cardiac ambulance.

BHMS
Homeopath,
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.

Iàm taking two time rice but no fatty things and green tea, is it good, while having cholesterol tg level 244.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hye. There is no problem in having green tea, but on it's own it can't help bring down triglycerides. Also rice is not a problem if it's unpolished or single pounded and it's not eaten in excess. Your overall diet plays an important role. It's not about just restricting fat but eating the right fats and sensibly.

Dear lybrateuser, - The cause of the calcification has to be found out by CT scan or biopsy, can be due to past infection, tb or any other factor in lung - a chest phycians consultation would be required so that the exact cause can be found out & treated accordingly.

You need to start with lifestyle precautions and diet modifications. 1) Start daily brisk walking, begin gradually, increase to 40-45 mins daily. 2) Bring dietry changes, avoid fried and high sugar food. Take a detailed diet consult from a dietician. 3) quit smoking and drinking. 4) Get your sugar and thyroid tested as well.

Well, rightly said you should go for a walk atleast 30 min daily or do exercises everyday, besides have a proper diet as per your body type, eat at regular intervals 3-4 hours gap, don't skip any meals, you can have methi water in the morning. Have food rich in fiber like fruits/whole grains (brown rice/whole wheat flour) instead of white rice/maida etc.

Yesterday I have a chest pain for 2-3 min. After the pain suddenly my left eye starting blinking is that heart attack?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, without examination we can not diagnose it as heart attack. chest pain may be because of heart problems , lung problems, gastrointestinal problems, anxiety or panic attack. So please mention few more symptoms associated with it so that i can diagnose the cause and suggest you the medication accordingly. And check your BP and ECG test done.

I hav high bp 166/110. How can I control ma bp. M taking stamlo 5. By medical practitioner advice. please suggest. Ma fasting sugar 88mg/dl.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Pritam, At 27 years you have very severe hypertension and it has to be controlled rapidly. The dose of Amlodepine 5 mg, is very low and there may be a need for additional drugs. About fasting blood sugar level of 88 mg, it is absolutely normal. There is no need to worry about that. But you BP needs to be better controlled. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions and even prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guide lines like to control BP you have to reduce daily salt intake to 2.3 g, avoid smoking and alcohol. Practice yogasanas etc.
