Why doctor give statin to their patients to prevent heart attack if statin can not percent heart attacks.
Statin group of medicines are given after heart attack to lower bad cholesterol, but now doctors are divided to give or not to give because of side effects like memory loss, risk to liver and kidneys, cancer risk etc, some doctors are giving dietary counselling, others are giving twice a week and still others are writing one per day out of reflex!

It appears your bp &diabetes both are not in control. To control sugar add tab k glimpses m 1 once before break fast and for bp add mode 5 mg once a day. Then check your sugar and bp after a wee.

You are taking trimetazine which is typically given in the management of angina or ischemic heart disease. Either your af is due to an ischemic episode some time back or due to thyroid. Please consult with all your reports as well as medications and ecg with ii long lead. Atrial fibrillation has some other problems too mainly pertaining to clots getting formed in the atria. Ideally there are drugs available for the management of the af which can be given and there are some minimal invasive surgical procedures too. Best of luck.

Hello- headaches are triggered by the hormonal changes that are happening in your body. They're very common in early pregnancy. The hormone progesterone helps to relax your womb (uterus) and blood vessels in your body, including those in your head and neck. Blood then pounds through these veins, causing headaches. Try these tips to avoid headache during pregnancy- 1. Rest and relaxation get plenty of rest and maybe take time off work, if you can. Get an early night every now and then. 2. Eating well try to eat a healthy diet. Have a wide variety of unprocessed foods of all types and colours to make sure you're getting a good balance of nutrients. 3. Posture make sure the position of your chair, computer screen and car seat encourage good posture.

Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

I had very tiredness, sleepiness and left side chest stiffness. So I met doctor and been asked to take some of the lab test and heart related scans. After lab test they found heart is functioning properly without any problem and only hypothyroid was identified last two months before at that time thyroid level was TSH 6.26 mIU/L. After taking two months of Thyroxine 25 mcg tablet now the level became 3.36 mIU/L and Doctor asked me to continue the tablet another 3 months and ask me to see the again the doctor after 3 months. Now also some times I am getting tired feeling and compare to before it is better. Also the left chest stiffness and some little high heart beat is noticing. My question is can you please let me know what may the reason. Can you please tell me about the base root cause. Is there any more test I need to do.

Hello, Thanks for the query. From the description given, it is clear that you have most of the symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Since that is being corrected now with a TSH level of 3.36 mU/L, most of your symptoms will be in check. Usually when TSH is between 6 to 9.9 mU/l, it is considered as sub-clinical hypothyroidism and no treatment is advocated. But if patient has symptoms related to hypothyroidism then treatment is started. Some times there is another disease by name Hashimoto's Thyrpooiditis (HT) which also causes hypothyroidism may be present leading to thyroid deficiency. That can be detected by testing Anti TPO antibodies. However, treatment does not change. Now you will have to continue taking levothyroxine tablets. Thanks.

Regular walking has been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. It lowers levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol while increasing levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and keeps blood pressure in check.

"Anything that raises your heart rate and gets your blood pumping is a workout for your heart and circulatory system" says personal trainer Stuart Amory. According to the Stroke Association, walking briskly for up to 30 minutes can help prevent and control the high blood pressure that can cause strokes ? reducing your risk by up to 27 per cent.
