Dear doctor, if one's good cholesterol like HDL reduces because of anxiety and confusion, what will happen to his health?

Hdl is needed in our body. It acts like a grease between organs so that to avoid friction and produces less heat which helps to maintain normal body temperature. It is especially found in abdominal areas between all digestive organs. So if it gets reduced. The opposite will happen like organs won't be able to show its efficiency and other heart and vascular functions gets disturbed. And the bad cholesterol tends to get deposited in all blood vessels hampering the blood flow. So ldl (bad cholesterol) is to lessened. Hope you understood. I tried my best to make you understand in simple terms. If you have any more queries, then please let me know. Take care.:)

Apart from low fat, low sugar diet, excercise is good for reducing cholestrol levels. But taking muscle suppliments are not advisable, you should consult dietician for appropiate diet for you, keeping high uric acid and cholestrol in mind. Drink plenty of water.

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.

I'm absolutely fit, no sugar or BP .Also we have family history of cardiac arrest, my father had first attack at the age of 44 & he died of heart attack at the age of 54. As of today I have no health issue but as you can see my cholesterol level is not normal. I'm 100% vegetarian, do not consume even an egg. Try to consume as less oil as possible but still cholesterol level is high. What do you suggest? Is the cholesterol level high enough to start statins? How can I lower TLC level?

Since you have a family history of premature coronary artery disease, you have a high risk of developing heart disease and earlier than your peers, So we should aggressively manage your Cholesterol and try and keep LDL levels below 100. In diet, it is important to avoid fried, sugary or high carbohydrate foods. You can have egg white if you want and also lean meat like fish or chicken if you want. Consult a dietician for a detailed diet consult. Exercise daily for 45 mins. And start taking cholesterol control medications. Consult a cardiologist near you, or consult in private for a prescription with lipid profile, RFT and TMT report.

Heart Attack - Know Its Symptoms and Diagnosis!

Clinical Cardiology, MD - Consultant Physician
Cardiologist, Surat
Heart Attack - Know Its Symptoms and Diagnosis!

A person usually gets a heart attack when there is a blockage in one of the arteries of the heart. This is an emergency situation that can result in a fatality or death if it is not treated immediately. Not all heart attacks will have a crushing pain in the chest right in the beginning, there are a number of symptoms that can show the slow progression of this attack over a few hours. So how do you know if you are having a heart attack, and what kind of treatment will be required? This article seeks to answer all your questions.

Discomfort in the Chest: The patient will usually feel like there is some pressure and squeezing in the chest or pain or even fullness right in the centre. This pain can come and go every few minutes and it should not be ignored.

Pain and Discomfort in other Parts of the Body: There may be some amount of pain and discomfort in other parts of the body including the arms, the jawline, back, neck, stomach and even the teeth. This pain can also travel down to the abdomen above umbilicus. In case there is persistent pain along with the chest discomfort, then a doctor must be contacted immediately.

Other Symptoms: When you feel breathless without any reason or medical cause, and also when you experience symptoms like anxiety, indigestion, vomiting, nausea, light headedness, dizzy spells and fatigue, you may be suffering from a heart attack.

Immediate Treatment: Once you begin to experience these symptoms along with chest discomfort and chest pain, it is imperative to call the emergency unit of the nearest hospital or get in touch with a doctor. Until then, you will need to lie down and chew aspirin if you are not allergic to the same. This is usually more efficient that swallowing.

Diagnosis of heart attack: Heart attack is diagnosed if patient has 2 criteria out of following 3-

  1. Pain or discomfort thought to be due to heart disease
  2. ECG suggestive of heart attack
  3. Elevated levels of cardiac enzymes (CK-MB and Troponin) in blood test (these levels start rising after 6 to 12 hours of heart attack)

Once you reach doctor an ECG should be done immediately along with blood pressure and pulse. If ECG shows heart attack then immediate action needs to be taken. Remember a normal first ECG does not rule out a heart attack. So a series of ECGs may be ordered by the doctor and at proper time blood test of cardiac enzymes may be done. Ruling out a heart attack may need an observation and testing up to 6 – 12 hours as cardiac enzyme test shows results only after that period. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Predictable Chest Pain Pattern - What Does It Indicate?

MBBS, DM - Cardiology, MD
Cardiologist, Hyderabad
Predictable Chest Pain Pattern - What Does It Indicate?

In addition to pumping blood to various organs, the heart also has its own blood supply, through which it receives its oxygen and nutrient supply. In patients with coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis, there is a narrowing of the blood vessels which reduces the amount of blood flow to the target organs, including the heart.

When this happens in the heart, there is chest pain due to overexertion of the heart muscles. There could be two patterns to this chest pain. With regular exertion like exercise, there would be chest pain, and most patients are familiar with this pattern.

This is known as angina pectoris or stable angina. In some people or in some instances, chest pain occurs which is sudden and not of a predictable pattern. It could be related to extreme exertion or stress. This is known as unstable angina and can lead to heart attack and be life-threatening.

Stable angina or angina pectoris has a stable, predictable pattern which most patients get familiar with over a period of time and learn to manage. Read on to know more about the signs and symptoms and management techniques.

Signs and symptoms: Stable angina usually occurs after a round of physical exertion. The patient feels a feeling of tightness in the chest which feels like the chest being squeezed. The pain can gradually spread to the shoulder, arms and even the neck. The pain can also be induced by eating, exposure to cold, emotional stress. It lasts for about 15 minutes and is relieved by rest and sublingual nitroglycerin. The pain intensity does not change with position or coughing. In addition, the patient may also experience shortness of breath, fatigue, profuse sweating, nausea, and dizziness.
The patient may be able to detect signs on further testing including ECG, echocardiography and stress testing. Features like cardiomegaly, altered ejection fraction would be detected based on the severity of the disease.

Treatment: Immediate treatment to relieve the pain includes resting and sublingual nitroglycerin. On an ongoing basis, the treatment would include 3 approaches – lifestyle changes, medications, and surgery.

  1. Lifestyle changes: Regular exercise, smoking cessation, reduced fat intake, reduced alcohol consumption, weight loss, and stress management are some lifestyle changes to be made to improve symptoms.
  2. Medications: A number of medications would be used depending on patient’s symptoms. Aspirin to prevent clotting, medications to control blood pressure and cholesterol and diabetes.
  3. Surgery: In patients with advanced coronary artery disease, revascularization methods may be required, which includes angioplasty and coronary bypass.

In a person with known risk factors, it is advisable to have regular checkups so that the disease progression can be controlled and symptoms managed with minimal intervention. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

If you want to get rid off this problem naturally, I suggest him to do regular exercises, yoga, pranayamas, regularly.& tell him to quit those smoking alcohol consumption, though less frequently it is. Taking more water, daily minimum 3-4 litres irrespective of his thirst, consuming more raw vegetables,[whatever he can eat. Like carrots, beet roots, lady's fingers, keera etc], fresh all seasonal fruits, sprouts will help keeping general health, take daily 1 glass of lemon juice mixed with honey. 1-2 times/ day. Don't take pickles, spicy, junk, oily, fast food, which will take up to risk of increasing the bad cholesterol levels. Taking 1 litre of water in morning with empty stomach will help maximum to keep all vital organs function well.

I also have high pulse rate (110). What is the possible reason for this. Please give me advice and suggest what should we do?

Quite a a few people normally have BP on a lower side, if it is not causing any problem like giddiness or weakness then you do not need to do anything about. Since you were ill recently it could simply be due to the weakness from illness. And low BP is mostly due to some vitaminn deficiency or anaemia or lack of water, if you are concerned get your Hemoglobin, vitamin b12, folic acid calcium, vitamin D3, Iron and TSH levels checked and consult a doctor locally with reports.

Hii doctor my dad aged 59 is having bloating problem on right of the chest from almost 2 years. Last year we went to gastro neurologist he did colonoscopy nd sigmoidoscopy he concluded saying that he had gas trouble everything is fine. After then again he used to get bloating rarely, from past week he is getting bloating along with spasm or cramp (muscle contraction) on right side of chest for sometime and only having relief when having soda I don't know the exact term for that muscle contraction but he don't have any pain but only contraction sensation from last week this is the second time to get these contractions is it life threatening or any indication of cardiac arrest. Or is it because of seasonal change (winter in India) or due to gas please clarify.

Since his problem was confined to upper abdomen and chest, he should have undergone gastroscopy rather than colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy which deal with the bowels and lower abdomen. He must be suffering from gastritis and esophagitis-inflammation of stomach and lower part of esophagus as a result of acidity (acid peptic disease). It is also advisable to get a sonography of abdomen done to rule out gall stones which can causes similar symptoms. As for heart problem, get his ECG done as it is possible any other problem may be co-existing and has to be ruled out.
