I have a cholesterol and triglyceride more than normal. So what is next step for me.

I have a cholesterol and triglyceride more than normal. So what is next step for me.
When cholesterol levels are elevated, your diet should be low in fat and high in fiber. Since the fiber helps to absorb the fat and elimates it from the body. Include more of raw vegetables, taking fruits as whole rather than juices will help to increase the fiber in the diet. Use more garlic and onions in the preparation of which will help to reduce the levels. Avoid taking junk, oily fried foods, saturated fats like ghee, butter, mayo sauce, red meats, organ meats, crabs, prawns, lobsters, carbonated beverages, highly saturated sweets and alcohol. Use high fiber foods like whole wheat, multi grain flour / breads, broken wheat, rice flakes, at least weekly twice green leafy vegetables, daily two serving of raw vegetables and fruits, avoid sugars - since they are converted into fat in the body and drink plenty of fluids. Many research studies have proved taking cinnamon powder along with water in empty stomach reduces the cholesterol levels in the blood. Along with the above dietary modifications, daily physical activity of at least 30-40 minutes is necessary.

Reduce salt consumption in your diet. Exercise daily. It'll come under control. By the way digital bp monitor gives 5-10 mm higher readings of bp.

Heart relies on electrical impulses to keep it beating at a steady pace. Problems with this electrical system can cause abnormal heart rhythms, or arrhythmia. Distended abdomen with gas, constipation, over exertion, alcohol, caffeine, lack of rest may b the triggering factors. We have sure n shot treatments in Ayurveda to treat such problems. Try Ginger and Mint tea twice a day with lemon. Avoid outside and spicy foods. Join Yoga classes.

It is possible that those stents have been blocked. 10 years is a long time. I am sure he has undergone a repeat angiography.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem is due to acidity - avoid fried, spicy, sour & junk food - chew your food well, have meals on time, do not skip meals, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - have 7-8 glasses of water for proper hydration - take tablet Pantaprazole, 1 tab half an hour before breakfast daily morning - restrict tea, coffee intake to 1-2 cups per day, also avoid alcohol & tobacco if you consume.

I bloat I lot after having meal. Gas is formed that spins my head. Burning in chest. Anxiety. Bp shoots. Uneasiness.

Dear lybrate user, **the food but ginger is well accepted as a traditional cure for indigestion. Ginger as a food ingredient or in a strong ginger tea helps in causing stimulation of saliva, bile juices and gastric juices while all these play important roles in digestion. Drinking ginger tea is certainly much more beneficially to get rid of gas and indigestion problems than coffee and soda.

Keep cholesterol below 150. Take plenty of vegetable and. Fruits. Exercises. Avoid junk foods. Ghee dalda and vanaspathi is not good. Red meat and trans fatty acids very bad. Less salt and sugar. Olive oil for cooking.

Dear sir/madam, my mother suffering from high blood pressure & thyroid problem so could you tell me the proper health diet for her & some healthy tips as well.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Avoid excess salt in diet take 8-10 glass water daily avoid fried and spicy food and coffee take a nutritious diet and a early morning walk start doing kapal bhati pranayam daily for 15 minutes. To start with do for 3-5 minutes nd slowly increase upto 15 minutes. The procedure for doing this asana is o sit in a comfortable crossed leg posture, sukasana (using padmasana or vajrasanais the best) and keep your back straight. Rest your hands on the knees using gyana mudra or chin mudra. O inhale deeply trough your nose, this will expand you abdomen. O exhale using a great force so that your abdominal muscles contract to the maximum o these exhalations are similar to your breath outs, but they should be forceful o make sure while exhaling, the air should be pushed out of your lungs by contracting the diaphragm o after exhalation again do inhalation, but this time with out any effort. To do this just relax your lungs, they will automatically expand and fill with air o one cycle of kapalabhati pranayama include one deep inhalation, then forceful exhalation and an effortless inhalation. O a learner can practice up to three rounds, each with 15 exhalations. Small breaks between each round are allowed.

Dear lybrate-user, At age 62, it is not abnormal to have slight change in ECG. To know more about heart condition, do 2D Echo or Thallium miocardial perfusion scan. This will give information of heart functioning. Regards.

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. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.
