Smoking kills is a right kind of advertising. Smoking (nicotine) is a stimulant which stimulates your heart to pump faster and forcefuly. Nicotine stimulates brain also. All you have to do is to stop smoking at once.

Does blood pressure changes while having intercourse? And what should be the limit?
Yes. BP will change during intercourse. If you are back to normal afterwards. Not to worry. Put your heart and mind in the process and partner. Don't waste thought on BP.

My mother is 61 year old and her ECG report says T wave inversion V1 to V3. Should we conduct further tests to diagnose problems with heart? Is this a common problem, which can be ignored? 3 years ago also we did ECG and the same problem was noted. On further consultation stress test was also done but that didn't reveal any heart problem.

Get echo test done plus cardiac ct scan for blockages in blood vessels of heart. Get blood tests for sugar and total lipids. Get back with reports here. This is not a common problem and should not be taken lightly.

Pls do have a checkup done through a cardiologist. Better have your problem properly diagnosed and then treat accordingly. Normally heart issues do not occur at such a young age but lifestyle can change the semantics. Do the basic things first. Change your lifestyle, go for long brisk walks at least 5 days a week. Duration of walk should be minimum 45 minutes. Watch what you eat. Reduce or stop taking junk food. Increase fibres in diet. Salads and fruits are a good source of that. No red meat if you r a meat eater. Do not take shortcuts to health. Slow and steady wins the race.

Being a dietitian my views: there is no single diet chart for everyone. To plan a specific diet we do collect lot of information like height, weight, food frequency, digestive history, medical history, likes, dislike, lifestyle, eating habits. Remember one thing to follow a diet it should be personalized according to person's body type and not generalized. Starting with there is no pills or powder or shake which can help you to lose weight in a healthy way. To lose weight eat an hour within walking up and dinner at least 2 hours before you sleep. Avoiding eating anything after dinner. Breakfast should be your king size have good complex carbohydrates and protein rich. Eat every 2 hours small frequent meal do help in weight loss. And do not overeat. One can come to ideal body weight with few lifestyle modification. Have green tea only 2 cups a day. For exercise I would say diet plays 80 % role and exercise plays 20 % role in losing weight. Personal advise on gym. You should not make your body habituated with machines rather do simple walk or surya namaskar or planks. So only with healthy eating one can lose weight.

Chest pain is not always due to heart attack. There are numerous different causes of chest pain. It can be due to increased acidity, acid reflux, costochondral inflammation, muscle spasm, nutritional deficiency, lung pathology or else. You can consult to rule out each and every possibility present causing chest pain.

7 Tips to Fix Your Cholesterol Without Medication :

1. Get the right cholesterol tests:

Check NMR particle sizes for cholesterol by asking your doctor for this test at Labcorp or LipoScience. You want to know if you have safe light and fluffy cholesterol particles, or small dense, artery damaging cholesterol particles. A regular cholesterol test won't tell you this.

2. Check for Metabolic Syndrome:

• Do you have a fat belly? Measure you waist at the belly button and your hips at the widest point -- if your waist/hip is greater than 0.8 if you are a woman or 0.9 if you are man, then you have a problem
• If you have small LDL and HDL particles, you have metabolic syndrome.
• If your triglycerides are greater than 100 and your HDL is less than 50, or the ratio of triglycerides to HDL is greater than four, then you have metabolic syndrome.
• Do a glucose insulin challenge test.

3. Eat a Healthy Diet. Eat a diet with a low glycemic load, high in fiber, and phytonutrient and omega-3 rich. It should be plant based, and you should consume plenty of good quality protein such as beans, nuts, seeds, and lean animal protein (ideally organic or grass fed).

4. Exercise.

5. Get Good Quality Sleep. Sleep is essential for healing your body, maintaining balanced blood sugar, and your overall health.

6. Use Supplements to Support Healthy Cholesterol Particle Size. These include:
• A multivitamin including at least 500 mcg of chromium, 2 mg of biotin and 400 mg of lipoic acid. For most you will take three capsules twice a day.
• 1000 mg of omega-3 fats (EPA/DHA) twice a day.
• 2000 IU of vitamin D3 a day at maximum. (Some people recommend less -- consult your doctor.)
• 1200 mg of red rice yeast twice a day.
• 2-4 capsules of glucomannan 15 minutes before meals with a glass of water.
• Broad-range, balanced concentration of plant sterols. You will usually take one capsule with each meal.

7. Consider Using High Dose Niacin or Vitamin B3. This can only be done with a doctor's prescription. It is useful to help raise HDL cholesterol, lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and increase particle size.

8. Use Low-Dose Statins ONLY If You Have Had Heart Disease or are a male with multiple risk factors, while carefully monitoring for muscle and liver damage.

Consult a cardiologist for review of medications. Also start with lifestyle changes like - 1) daily brisk walking, begin gradually and then increase to 40-45 mins daily 2) Avoid high salt rich food like chips, namkeens, pickles, sauce, chutney. 3) Quit smoking and drinking if you do 4) Eat a heart healthy diet.

hi I think angioplast isn' t essential in all the cases of blockages. Blockages can be removed with some dietary changes and physical excercise and pranayam. What do you think.

General Physician, Mumbai
In mild blockages what you say may be ok but in critical blockages it will require specific treatment.

I am suffering from breathing problem, feeling like I am not getting enough breath for last 2 weeks. I am having b12 deficiency and vitamin d deficiency also. Is b12 deficiency the reason for breath problem, if not what is the problem?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MD Internal Medicine
General Physician, Visakhapatnam
B12 deficiency can not be related to your breathing problem. Check your hemoglobin. Vitamin d deficiency will not cause breathing problem. You may be having too many worries and tensed up which will cause the problem similar to your symptoms. Think over for any issues causing worries and address them. If no such issues, contact me.

I hope that blood pressure and blood sugar levels are under control. Only thing bothering you is lack of sleep. Take a glass if warm toned milk with a spoon of honey added to it. Take care about rest of calories, you can balance by deleting other items worth 200 call in this milk food. Listen to soothing music, read good books, don't watch violence on tv. Meditation before sleep helps.
