High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Yes some women do give up on life at 60 plus. Do tell her that women get a new life after menopause. Regarding diabetes, there are plenty like her showing good control with diet and medicine. Having less teeth is one of the ageing process. Depend on liquid nourishing food and calories or get her a good set of dentures. Heart surgery or procedures are carried out on diabetics with great success. Take her to a heart hospital and let her talk with few recovered patients so that her confidence levels are high before she goes for any procedures. Good luck.

The toxins in cigarette smoke thickens your blood, triggers plaque buildup, makes it harder for your blood to carry oxygen and increases risk of blood cloting. Carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in your red blood cells, decreasing your energy.

My grandfather have heart blocks three. What should they do angioplaatic or surgeries operation in age of 75.
There is a very good natural procedure to remove heart blocks by consuming a household prepared medicine. Take below things ginger juice - 1 cup garlic puree - 1 cup lemon juice - 1 cup apple cider vinegar - 1 cup mix all the ingredients and heat it on low flame for 10-15 mints after evaporation of water content from it. Its becomes 3 cups of mixture then add 3 cups organic honey mix it properly and stored in glass water bottle and give him daily one teaspoon in the morning and one tea spoon in evening. If the patient is diabetic don't mix honey. If it is difficult to prepare above mixture, just consult homeopathy doctor there were good medicine in homeopathy to lowering the cholesterol, to remove blocks, and also improve the hearts health.

One blockage can be cleared by baloon therapy(angiography) Merits are that there is no need to do heart surgery + it serves as a warning for rest of life to take care of heart by eating well , exercise and taking stress in your stride with no negative feelings. Good Luck. Bypass surgery should be done if there are Diffuse Blockages all over the heart / blockages are more than 2 , because getting fitted with more stent is not beneficial in the long run compared to one time heart surgery , Aftercare after 2 months is same in both.

Two doctors told different %block in left ventricle need opinion for angioplasty.
Dear Amrita, it seems you mean blockage on leftside arteries of heart. Its true that percentage of block assesed by visual inspection will vary if you show to different doctors. Its not exact. But whether its signoficant blockage or not can be told. For example 80% or 90% both will require angioplasty. If the block is in 50 to 70% range, or what we call as intermediate lesion, then we do a test called FFR, which will determine if a block needs angioplasty or can be managed medically. I hope your doctors might have explained in details. Thank you.

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).
