High cholesterol can lead to blockages in major blood vessels supplying heart, brain, kidney, gut, legs etc. Blockages in these leads to reduced blood supply to the affected part and can cause related problems. Good food, exercise are advised. Apart from this you need to control any other risk factors like diabetes, high bp etc if any.

In a simple word. Ecosprin is a blood thinner. So a pt under a treatment with ecosprin has always a tendency to bleed during any surgical procedure. The dictm is that. You hv to stop ecosprin for a atleast 7 days prior operation.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

When blood vessel (s) supplying blood to the heart tissue get blocked, heart tissue gets affected and stop working partially depending upon the block (s) and the suffering person has pain on the left side of chest radiating towards left arm and hand, breathless, uneasiness, pain in the back, blackouts -all of the above or none-person suffers in sleep, is found dead. Prevention is lifestyle modification (s) control diabetes and bp, eat right, cut down on oily food but do take healthy fats like ghee, butter, nuts-a katori, good fats, just 5-10 gms/day.

My mom had three blockage in heart artery.Angioplasty has done on 14 march 2015.Chest pain has gone off.Is she now safe ?

MBBS, DGO (cal)

Angioplasty has improved circulation in the arteries supplying the heart muscles. She is definitely safe and can do her normal routines. But remember she must continue her medicines prescribed by her cardiologists. She also must improve her life style to a healthy one so that further she does not develop the same. Because the effect is removed but not the cause. She shall have to remove the cause by: 1) Exercise - Aerobics - Brisk Walking is the best and most easily adoptable aerobic - for 40 minutes daily. Her weight should be keep in the healthy limit of BMI 23-24 Kg / Mtr Square. 2) Dietary Management - Avoid Oily food, fast food, Sweet, Sugar, fried food, No tobacco use in any form. 3) Meditation - 20 minutes daily. You give her to read The Silva Mind Control Method of Mental Dynamics by Jose Silva. Let her practice the method. This is a good book to help. A feedback shall be highly appreciated.

yes sir it is bad for your heart. High cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, a cause of heart attacks, and reducing blood lipid levels lowers the cardiovascular risk.4 High levels of LDL lead to a build-up of cholesterol in the arteries, whereas HDL carries cholesterol to the liver for removal from the body.2 A build-up of cholesterol is part of the process that narrows arteries, called atherosclerosis, in which plaques form and cause restriction of blood flow.2 High cholesterol levels are a result of modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. Two major risk factors, diet and exercise, are highly modifiable, meaning that something can be done to change these risk factors and reduce the likelihood of having high cholesterol.2 Limiting intake of fat in the diet helps manage cholesterol levels. In particular, it is helpful to limit foods that contain:2 Food sources of cholesterol Meat, cheese and egg yolks are sources of cholesterol. Cholesterol (from animal foods, such as egg yolks, meat and cheese) Saturated fat (found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods) Trans fat (found in some fried and processed foods). Being overweight or obese can also lead to higher blood LDL levels, with regular exercise helpful in managing this risk factor.2 The primary causes of high cholesterol are genetic - very high LDL levels are found in the inherited condition familial hypercholesterolemia.5 Abnormal cholesterol levels may also be secondary to the following:5,6 Diabetes Liver or kidney disease Polycystic ovary syndrome Pregnancy and other conditions that increase levels of female hormones Underactive thyroid gland. Drugs that increase LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol (progestins, anabolic steroids and corticosteroids).
