My friends mother died recently. It all started early in the morning. She forgot to take her high BP tablet the night before. Early morning she started vomiting with severe headache, nausea and her lower body below vest was sort of paralysed. My friend gave her two 25 mg tablets Enam-25 and she was rushed to the nearby hospital. There ECG did not show any heart attack. Later they checked sugar, electrolyte, lipid profile. All reports were normal. An echo test was done showing normal valve functioning but 40% LV diastolic contraction. The heart specialist said it's with in the normal range but suggested that treatment be started. She was injected and a tablet was given. After taking tablet she vomited and then collapsed. Nothing worked out and she was declared dead. Now my friend is worried that was it a mistake to give two 25 mg tablets to control BP? Did that dose mislead the heart specialist? The doctors were informed that she had been given two tablets. Was one tablet enough and would that have given true information in echo test or ECG? Could anybody explain. Please tell.

Two tablets of enam 25 (enalapril) would not cause death of a patient- moreover, your friend's mother wasn't told to have low blood pressure when she reached the hospital. The sudden collapse that you have detailed was perhaps an episode of arrhythmia (irregular heart rate) - which causes sudden cardiac deaths. Its very difficult to come to terms with such a tragedy in life - but I can tell you only one thing out of my own experience - its never anybody's fault! she was in the hospital and still she died - make your friend accept this.

Please get an ECG and Echo done. If they are normal get your BP checked 3-5 days to see if this was an erratic increase or if you really have BP and need treatment.

Hello sir, your cabg happened last year 2014 right? your hba1c is fine. Your weight and cholesterol along with history of heart disease, it is better to avoid yolk sac. From my view white of an egg is ok once a week, as it is also protein rich and tend to convert in fats take once a week. Also join cardiac rehabilitation programmes conducted by most of the 100 + bedded hospitals which will guide you better about exercise and diet. Along with the regular tablets do start homoeopathy which will help you to have better quality of life. Thanks.

Research has given very good guidelines for the following foods that will help in your condition. Pomegranate ( full, seeds, juice and skin) helps in reviving blood vessel health, repair wear-tear in vessels. Alkaline foods will help resolve oxidative stress that is an outcome of disease, and medication, especially longterm. These include daily, small portions of Amala, Doodhi, red pumpkin, ragi, pear, guvava, black pepper, petha (fruit). Ayurvedic "Dhamasa" is known to have clotlysis (dissolving blood clots) action, but needs to be taken under Ayurvedic doctor supervision. For your blocked nose, keep a small piece of 'Kapur' near your pillow to help decongestant of nasal track. Gargle with one drop eucalyptus oil in evening or much before sleeping to strengthen the breathing passage as well as help you throw out cough from forehead sinus.

Not necessary if you have learnt lessons to follow a healthy lifestyle. Genes from the side of your mother are half and genes play little role compared to wrong eating and sedentary lifestyle and smoke and alcohol and high uncontrolled bp and blood sugar with high cholesterol. Take care and don't live in fear of a heart attack. Keep basics mentioned above in control and do go for annual check ups.

The mucosal surface of the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract is colonized by 1013-14 bacteria of 400 different species and subspecies. Gastrointestinal microflora is catagorized into two types, autochthonous flora (indigenous flora) and allochthonous flora (transient flora). Autochthonous microorganisms colonize particular habitats, i.e. Physical spaces in the GI tract, whereas allochthonous microorganisms cannot colonize particular habitats except under abnormal conditions. Most pathogens are allochthonous microorganisms; nevertheless, some pathogens can be autochthonous to the ecosystem and normally live in harmony with the host, except when the system is disturbed. Our gut consists of its own environment of micro organism called gut flora. They are responsible for proper digestion of food. Once this flora is depleted by toxins released by bacteria many of G.I symptoms like bloating belching vomiting constipation loose stools etc can be there. I would suggest you to take a good probiotic for 1 week. This will again replenish the depleted flora. Once the flora is replenished intestinal motility and secretions will be improved. Tablet Pantoprazole (40 mg once daily before breakfast) can be taken along with it to provide relief. General advice- thrice daily, take two tea spoon (or one big spoon) ispagula with 200 to 300 mL water -warm water intake as much as possible - eat small meals (rich in fiber) -eat plentiful "fresh oranges" and "pear"- avoid COLD milk and yogurt and AVOID junk food (NO burger, pizza) altogether - mix few drops of lemon juice in warm water. Drink on empty stomach, early in the morning, to aid in bowel movement - avoid beverages / alcohol/ soft drinks - do some exercise (push-ups etc) early in the morning.

Dear lybtate user, - The best way to improve the damage caused by smoking is to completely stop it as it will help reverse the harmful changes which have taken place in the body over a period of time - have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, whole grains protein foods like egg, milk & milk products, healthy fats as in seafood, avocado, mixed nuts - do regular exercise, walking, jogging in fresh air for 20-30 min, also do yoga & deep breathing for 10-20 min daily morning - have 8-10 glasses of water for proper hydration & removal of toxins from the body - get a chest x-ray, blood CBC, cholesterol, sugar, ECG done to rule out any problem caused due to the effects of smoking.
