Excessive urination can be due to high sugar levels but as I am not having any latest reports of your father, I think may be before and during surgery, sometimes catheterisation leads to urine infection. Just get him examined for routine urine test.

Hi, I can not run like you! good effort rohit! actually your heart is helping you by beating faster. I suggest you slow down when the heart rate goes above 120 per minute. Then start again. With daily practice you will acheive your aims. Dont take any medicines. It would be good if you get a stress echo done to see your heart function. It will help you understand how your heart is helping you run fast and also to make sure you have no problem that will prevent you from reaching your aims.

Does olive oil prevent heart disease? Short answer: Yes  The health benefits of olive oil come from the presence of polyphenol, antioxidants that reduce the risk of heart diseases and cancers. But to get these healthy compounds, consumers should buy good-quality, fresh" extra-virgin" olive oil, which has the highest polyphenol content. Most commercially available olive oils have low levels of polyphenol associated with poor harvesting methods, improper storage, and heavy processing.

Good to know that you have basic knowledge about oils and don't follow the herd spirit. Use mustard oil in thick based iron vessel to cook your greens and other vegetables like your grany used to do with no non stick handy pans. But do depend on steam cooking by using a pressure cooker after sauting the vegetables with very little oil. Remember no oil is zero cholesterol.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your problem is due to acidity & anxiety, do not worry at your age it is unlikely a heart problem - follow some precautions, do not skip meals, have meals on time have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than three large meals, chew your food well, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - avoid spicy, fried, junk food, reduce intake of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups a day, avoid aerated drinks - have 7-8 glasses of water for proper hydration - do regular exercise like walking, jogging for 10-15 min, also do yoga, deep breathing for 10-15 min daily - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night.

You mean to say that one blood vessel is blocked (not nerve blocked?) that was the reason for heart attack recently? may be your doctor will suggest angioplasty which is different from open heart surgery. Recovery is good provided patients take care of health by eating right food, doing moderate exercises, keeping bp and blood sugar in control. Good luck.

I am a patient of DM, IHD, PPM, HTN. taking regular medicines. What will be my ideal diet? My age is 72 years.
I hope every condition is under control. Ideal diet is not according to charts. You eat according to your constitution without comparing with others. No sugar or sweets, no bad fats, only good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/ butter and a katori of assorted nuts. Minimal salts and no packaged food as it contains lots of salt, being a preservative. Lemon juice with honey but cut down on other calories (just 30 cals in a spoon of honey) it helps to burn the fat and sugar. Fruits like guava, orange, apple can be had. Exercise like walking also burns sugar and fats.

You may have thyroid issues or vitamin deficiency or uric acid. Get a check up done. Also, if you have gained weight, then it can cause knee pain. If the knees are swollen and feel heavy, if there is a sound when you sit or get up and doing that is painful, stair climbing is difficult, then it might be the beginning of knee arthritis or other knee joint problem, also resulting in muscle weakness around the knee. So get a orthopedic consultation and a physiotherapy consultation personally.
