Hi sir what is the diet should be followed to prevent heart attack for the persons age above 50 male person.
Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people.

Hypertension

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi

Hello friends, me Dr Sumit Dhawan hun aur me ek homoeopathic doctor hun. I practice in Delhi. Aaj hum discuss karenge Hypertension. Bohot log is problem se suffer kar rahe hai, yeh ek aisi beemari hai jo aaj kal young age log bhi suffer kar rahe hai. Aaj hum apko uske liye tips bhi denge aur conventionally jo purane allopathic doctors hain aur modern doctors hai, wo kya treatment de rahe hai aur hum usme apki kese help kar sakte hai being a homoeopathic doctor.

Aaj me sabse pehle apko yeh bata batana chahunga ki BP koi beemari nahi hai, BP bas ek androoni underlined cause hai uska jisse BP high hojata hai kisi ka. Iske symptoms kuch is tarah ke hote ha ki,

  • Tiredness
  • Ankho me blured vision
  • Nose bleeding
  • Chakkar ana

Aise lakshan hote hai iske.

Blood pressure do tareeke ka hota hai. Ek to normal hota hai jisme patient ko pata bhi nahi chalta hai. Islie me recommend karunga ki aap jab bhi doctors ke paas jae to ek bar apne BP zarur check karwae. Agar blood pressure high ata hai to usko theek kare. Use theek karne ke liye modern medicine me uska koi treatmnet nahi hai. Ye bas managable hai. Jese high BP ko low karne ki dawai hai lekin BP kyu badh raha hai, uski koi dawai nahi hai. Saalo tak log BP ki dawaiya lete rehte hai aur zada saalo tak dawaiya khane se baaki organs pe bhi effect aane lag jata hai jise hum Malignant Hypertenion bolte hai. Problems jese ki ankho ke neeche swelling, legs swelling, urinary problems etc hone lag jati hai. Ye saari problems long term medication ki wajah se aati hai.

Hume starting me he is problem k root cause ko theek kar dena chaie homoeopathy ke dwara, jisse ki aapko life long aise problems face na karni pade. Aaj hum apko bataenge ki sabse pehle conventionally kya-kya use hota hai. Isme modern medicines me Bea blockers, alpha blockers ya fir diuretics (jo apka urine ekdam se bahar nikal de aur apka BP low hojae), ye sab BP lowering agents hai. Jo bhi chemicals apko diye jate hai ya jo bhi synthesised hai wo apko immediately to harm nahi karenge, wo apko protect bhi karenge lekin uska treatment nahi hppaega. Uska sirf management he ho paega. Bp high hone ki wajah se koi aur nuksaan na ho, uska treatment diya jata hai. Ye sab lena bhi zaruri hai but sath he yeh bhi dekhna hta hai ki is problem ko theek kese kia jaae.

Homeopathy ek aisi pathy hai jise 250 saal pehle discover kiya gaya hai. Aur iske good effects se bohot logo ka faeda hum kar paa rahe hai. Yeh humare liye ek boon hai. Homeopathy ke dwara hum manage to karenge he problem ko aur sath me yeh faeda bhi denge ki Blood Pressure over high na jaae aur sath me apko benefit bhi milta rahe aur apka main root cause bhi khatam hota rahe.

Homeopathy se hume root cause nikalna hota hai ki BP high kyu horaha hai. Kya kidney ki wajah se problem hai? Ya heart ki wajah se problem hai? ya stress ya over work ki wajah se yeh problem hai?

To hume BP ke reasons ko theek karna hai. iske lie humare pass bohot sari medications hoti hai jo ki apke physical aur mental cause ko dekh ke select ki jaati hai.

Is problem ko theek karne ke liye 4 tips hai;

  • Exercise regime banaiye, jisse humara stress khatam hoga, body active hoga aur humare organs jese ki haert, kidney ki bhi exercise hojati hai. To isse apke BP causing agents kam honge.
  • Jo bhi apki medicines chal rahi hai, wo time pe lijiye aur sath me homoeopathic ki goodness bhi add kijiye jisse ki apke BP ka root cause bhi theek ho.
  • Apkon apna lifestyle change karn apdega. Jese ki apko apna salt quantity kam karna padge, fast food kam karna padega, Baking soda related food kam khae kyuki wo bhi BP increase hone ka reason hai, koi preserved food na khaae. Aap natural cheez khae, salad pe salt na daale.
  • Last is ki apko homoeopathy apni diet me add karna hai. Apko apne doctor ko consult karna chaie.

Aap chahe to mujhe bhi Lybrate ke through consult kar sakte hai aur aap meri website ke through bhi consult kar sakte hai.

All the best.

CT angiogram reveals the areas where there is no proper blood supply to the heart. Any part of the body require nutrition and oxygen for its function. Nurtrition and oxygen to all parts of the body is supplied by the blood. As the heart is doing exercise that contraction and relaxation every second of day and night throughout your body, if it doesnot receive proper and sufficient amount of blood every second, heart stops functioning. You know what happens when heart stops functioning. CT angio is only indicative investigation. The correct investigation is angiogram. Then why they suggest CT angio is if the patient is unfit for procedures and its easy and cheaper comparatively. Changes in Echo and ECG has to be there as you say that her BP is uncontrolled. So go for regular checkups and follow up with the cardiologist will help in avoiding the complication of the high BP.

ECG can give condition of functioning of the heart. It does not give a direct reference to the presence of blockages, although, sever disturbance in ECG can indicate blockage kind of disease. 2D Echo reports will be required to see if damage is so extensive that angioplasty is required. Rotablade may not be the best option for treatment. Angiography is an invasive, extensive visual study of the condition of blood vessels supplying nutrition to the heart, the treatment that follows would be implanting a stent or ballooning. There are other options that are non invasive and medicine based. If you can take a private consultation with our doctors, we will be able to help you better.

Eat Bananas

People whose diets are rich in potassium may be less prone to high blood pressure. Besides reducing sodium and taking other heart-healthy steps, eat potassium-packed picks such as bananas, cantaloupe, and oranges.

Instead of medication, first try lifestyle measures like - daily exercising for 40-45 mins, avoiding stimulants like caffeine and decreasing foods with high salt intake like pickles, chips, chutneys etc (salt added during cooking is fine) and quitting smoking (in case you smoke) If after 6-8 weeks of these measures your BP is still high, you will need medications in addition to these lifestyle measures.

Hello. Get your blood pressure checked daily at the same time for monitoring. Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Weight? snoring nose is identified as silent killer in this fast life. If prescription work then good ,failing that surgery is the only option after sleep study n other test due to disturbance in sleep. For raised BP we have some solution between a time, so consult with full details in most of cases modern system of medicine has side effects, n its noted that dose increases periodically. You can also confirm with your doctor for your doubt.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
If you are diagnosed by cardiologist, as it seems, he can say what are to be investigated. The advantage of tee over tte is usually clearer images, especially of structures that are difficult to view transthoracically (through the chest wall). I could not understand what you meant by" tee showed sec? if your cardiologist says you need an angiography you should trust. If there is any doubt you can take second opinion from a reputed cardiologist.

Stroke is NOT a Heart Attack! + 5 Other Stroke MYTHS busted!

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Stroke is NOT a Heart Attack! + 5 Other Stroke MYTHS busted!

6 Myths on STROKE, busted!

Stroke affects the arteries that lead to the brain. This serious, life-threatening condition happens when blood supply to a part of the brain gets cut off.

Many myths surround this medical condition :

Myth 1: Only older people suffer from strokes


This isn't true - young people can experience strokes as well. About a quarter of stroke cases are reported by people aged 65 and below. More importantly, irrespective of the age group, the warning signs are the same; it is only in response that differences can be found between younger and older people.

Myth 2: Women don't suffer from strokes

The opposite is true. It is women who suffer strokes more often than men. This is because women tend to live longer than men whose longevity gets affected by heart disease. Since they live longer than men, they tend to be more vulnerable to strokes.

Myth 3: Strokes can't be prevented

Through changes in your lifestyle, strokes can easily be prevented. You can reduce your chances of getting a stroke by having a balanced diet, exercising, keeping an optimum body weight and limiting alcohol consumption as well as quitting smoking. Moreover, up to 80% stroke cases can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.

Myth 4: Strokes aren't easy to recognise

Strokes can be easily diagnosed through the Face, Arm, Speech and Time test (FAST). If you suffer from slurred speech, facial droop or numbness on one side of the body, you're said to suffer from a stroke.

Myth 5: Strokes are similar to one another

This is another misconception about stroke. No two strokes are the same. While certain strokes happen when blood flow to the brain gets interrupted, there are others that take place when blood vessels in the brain get ruptured. Recovery depends on the extent of damage, the type of stroke and your health condition before the occurrence.

Myth 6: Strokes are a form of heart attack

Although strokes and heart attacks are closely related, they are not the same. In strokes, blood supply to the brain gets interrupted; on the other hand, in heart attacks, blood supply to the heart gets severely affected.

'Consult'.

Can Hypertension Affect Pregnancy?

Blood pressure is the thrust exerted by the blood against the artery walls or blood vessels. A certain count of blood pressure is necessary for blood circulation, but anything excessive may prove to be trouble. A reading above the count considered normal; 140/90 (mmHg) may induce symptoms, such as short breath, severe headaches, nosebleeds and anxiety.

Any sort of hypertension during pregnancy can take a toll on the baby.

1. Preeclampsia is a condition wherein, the blood pressure peeks high after 20 weeks of conception accompanied by traces of protein in urine and functional disorders in a few organs.

2. Hypertension might often result in the delivery of an underdeveloped (abnormally small size) baby.

3. High blood pressure might also give rise to a complication wherein, one might have to go for Caesarian section rather than a normal vaginal delivery.

4. The placenta detaches itself from the uterine wall much prior to the delivery.

5. Preeclampsia escalates one’s risks of suffering from heart disorders or other cardiovascular diseases.

6. It restricts the blood flow to the placenta (an organ nourishing the baby), thus cutting off adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients to the fetus.

Signs and symptoms:

1. Excessive protein content in urine

2. Impaired liver functioning

3. Low urine levels

4. Nausea or vomiting

5. Intense pain and tenderness in the upper abdomen

6. Problems in eyesight such as double vision or temporary loss of vision, light sensitivity and blurriness.

7. Abnormal swelling

8. Persistent and a severe headache

Treatment:

Medications do meddle with pregnancy. However, certain medications are considered safe to be used for keeping blood pressure levels under control. These include Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs) and Renin Inhibitors. However, do consult a doctor to get your dosage administered accurately. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
