Angiogram shows 3 blocks in different arteries 90% blockage. He was suggested bypass surgery. He had no previous history might hv happened sometime earlier.

That is for you to consult in detail with your cardiologist. The definitive treatment is bypass surgery. Whether he will make it, only treating doctors can decide. By the way, there are no guarantees in medicine.

Sir which oil suitable to cooking for high triglycerides.
I am not aware of what you are implying about your medication and allergy. Please clarify. For high triglycerides, please do not be overweight, and check for diabetes mellitus. The oils that you can use olive oil for salad, you can use canola or mustard for your regular cooking. Remember amount of oil used has to be minimum. Also keep in mind about lots of saturated fat hidden in foods like patties, samosas etc, sugar products alaso lead to high triglycerides.

In some cases, repeated examination and screening yield no positive results, yet the patient still complains of vaginal discharge. It is then appropriate to explore with the patient the nature of the discharge and relate this to normal physiological discharge, to review personal hygiene habits (advise to avoid douches, perfumed products and tight synthetic clothing) and to explore the possibility of the hidden complaint, such as depression, anxiety or psychosexual dysfunction. Graphotes - profuse, thin, white mucous discharge which comes in gushes with associated back and lower abdominal pain, discharge is more profuse in the morning on rising, constantly cold.

Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

Hello dear 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. for uric acid take tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day.
