Hi am MB, I am 67 years old, recently I had got my comprehensive cardiac check up done which I do regularly with a frequency of once every year. This time during regular treadmill test, my exercise tolerance was found fair. What does that actually mean? And what is tmt positive? Is there any thing needed to be done after tmt test results? What is the relationship between a positive tmt and bad cholesterol? What are the precautions needed to be taken to prevent bad cholesterol build up? What kind of food habits that has to be avoided for good heart condition and subsequently to keep yourself away from cholesterol? Are exercise requirements and regular walking habits play a vital role in maintaining healthy heart state? Request to answer my queries and help me to maintain a sound health. Thank you very much. Regards MB.

Exercise tolerance is fair but tmt? positive, may be slightly. Get echo done to know % functioning of heart and a total lipid profile to know about good and bad cholesterol. Our body is like a car that needs good type of engine oil to function properly, bad cholesterol is bad oil, and good cholesterol is good oil, low chilesterol does lead to illnesses like arthritis and cancer. Keep low cholesterol lower than 80 and good cholesterol higher than 80. Eat 5 gms of desi ghee / butter and a katori of nuts of all varieties-soaked and peeled almonds, cashew nuts, wallnuts, peanuts etc. Avoid bad fats like burgers, pizzas, fried road side food and reheated oil at home. Do not go by ads on tv, there is no oil that is zero cholesterol, but still till date sarson ka tel - musturd oil is the best for our style of cooking, use steam to cook, avoid frying even at home. Consume more seasonal fruits and vegetables. If levels of good cholesterol are kept on a higher side, it helps bring down the levels of bad cholesterol. Exercise reduces bad cholesterol and so does drinking a glass of warm water with juice of fresh lemon + a spoon of honey in it. Write down if there are any doubts. Remember pollution is bad for the heart, as bad as smoking, stay near green plants to get fresh oxygen, if risky levels outside home, it is better to stay indoors and use an exercise cycle.

Sir. I am mentally depressed because of my love failure. And my blood pressure is about 163/110. How can I recover?

Sir. I am mentally depressed because of my love failure. And my blood pressure is about 163/110. How can I recover?
Do get your health assessed by a physician to rule out any other physiological issue. Does any family member in your family suffer from bp? as for feeling depressed over love is concerned, yes you might be hurting but a failed love is in no way a symbol of failed life. You are just 17 years old and have a long and wonderful part of life waiting for you, you need to divert your mind from love to look around what you want to achieve with your life, what you want to do and give back to the society, your parents, siblings, friends etc. You are capable of much more than just withering away due to a failed love. You still have to understand about relationships, how to build one, how to maintain one and that takes time. Pull yourself up and focus on your studies and set goals for your future. Take steps towards disciplining and following through to reach your goal. All the best!

Dear, You seem to be having many medical questions because you are suffering from either generalized anxiety disorder or somatisation or somatoform disorder or eating disorder or other psychiatric disorder. Please stop reading all about the various changes in anxiety and stress and project it on yourself. Normal stress is managed by release of stress hormones by the body to cope up with it. They are NORMAL, beneficial way of dealing with stress. The above disorders are abnormal release of stress hormones and its effect on many bodily functions including HDL and LDL metabolism. The above disorders are NOT diagnosed by blood tests. Please consult a psychiatrist and take treatment both as tablets and as talk therapy.

I am 23 years old man. My weight is about 78 kg I wanna lose ma extra cholesterol. What to do?
High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I have fast pain sometimes in my left hand side chest. It can symptoms of heart attacks?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
I have fast pain sometimes in my left hand side chest. It can symptoms of heart attacks?
Hi lybrate user-pain on the left side of the chest is an important symptom which indicates a number of things but the most dangerous of them is heart-attack. Heart-attack comes with lots of associated symptoms as well and not just chest pain. A left-sided chest pain which is associated with radiation to the left arm, palpitation, sweating, dizziness, blackout, breathlessness, lightheadedness - is more indicative of a heart attack. It's not necessary that all these associated symptoms will definitely occur in a patient of heart attack. But whenever these associated symptoms occur-they do definitely bring us closer to the clue that the chest pain is of cardiac in origin. Moreover any chest pain that is associated with increased pain on touching or pressurising a localised part on the chest wall is more indicative of a musculoskeletal chest pain. So please just don't think about heart attack and try to rationalise your symptoms. I hope my answer helps you. Regards.

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

How to prevent lifestyle diseases?
How to prevent lifestyle diseases?

In the olden days, we had food scarcity and too much physical work. So obesity and lifestyle diseases were less among people. In those times people used to eat heavily when more food was available and eat less when no food was available. 

Then came the agricultural revolution era and a smart public distribution system. Food become abundant. It became impossible to change our centuries' old habit and we started eating more.

Then came industrial, it developments and opening up of markets. It created the following things:

Less physical work. Too much mental strain. Odd working hours. Availability of cheap tasty junk foods.

All these started leading to lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension and diabetes. 

Then came the medical era (the current period), when the incidences of the above said diseases started growing out of proportions. Nowadays we have started realizing that 

We are over eating. We are eating junk calories, food with high fat and salt content. We are leading a sedentary lifestyle.

We have started seeing our parents, relatives, friends getting these diseases, and we have come to know that there is no escape, since they too lead a similar lifestyle. This is the awareness era. Now availability of resources like internet and health magazines are changing people's mind to lead a healthy and fit life.

How to lead a healthy lifestyle and avoid lifestyle diseases?

Stop smoking, reduce alcohol consumption to once a week (two drinks only, it is better if avoid alcohol. Control your existing illnesses like diabetes and hypertension by dedicated dieting and regular consultation with your physician.
Physical activity: 40 minutes a day, minimum 5 days a week. Stop junk foods completely, reduce sugar, salt and oil consumption.
Sleep well (5-8 hours). Everybody has a different biological clock. A refreshing night's sleep varies from person to person. For some 5 hours is enough, for some they need 8 hours. Find out which person you are and start sleeping for the correct time.
