Dr. Whether eating boiled egg is good or bad? Whether it increases my body weight or cholesterol? Please clarify. Thanks.

Masters in Applied Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hyderabad
Hello Eating boiled egg is good. It does not cause any health issue. But the quantity matters. 2 whole eggs per week is fine for weight loss. Yellow part of egg is very good as it has cholesterol and a very potent antioxidants like selenium, and zinc. Cholesterol is not the culprit for cutaneous fat. infact all our cells are made up of cholesterol. All the neurological connections need cholesterol. Triglycerides and low density lipoproteins are major culprit for heart diseases. Hope this helps you. stay healthy stay fit☺

I have angina and controlled diabetes. As per lipid profile report my LDL is 126. How can I reduce the LDL below 100. Is eating some cheese, few nuts and olive oil harmful to me and increase cholesterol level. Also advise me suitable yoga or pranayam for this if any.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, to reduce ldl over all fat intake may have to be curtailed. Olive oil and certain nuts are fine, but high fat cheese may have to be avoided. Regular exercise for 1 hour including brisk walking is a very good option. All pranayams and yogasanas are good. If you really do pranayam then it should be 1) bhastrika 3 minutes, 2) kapalbhati 15 minutes, 3) bahya 11 to 21 times, 4) agnisar 11 to 21 times, 5) anulom vilom 15 minutes, 6) bhramari 11 to 21 times & 7) udgit (om) 11 to 21 times. Then it is beneficial. Thanks.

If the pain started during exercise and is persistent then it may be muscle or joint pain. Do mild stretching exercises. Hot water fomentation may help. Pain balm applied locally may help.

What should I do in my heart pain and what medicine I should take and how it will work?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
First make sure that pain is due to heart only, get ecg done and a blood test called troponin, through a drop of blood taken by finger prick, spread on a strip, if 2 lines, test is positive. Medicines are given according to severity of disease but to prevent more damage in a suspected heart attack, it is advised to take a soluble aspirin and rush to hospital.

For your chest pain -- if possible do a fresh stress test and if it is negative than we can rule out the cardiac cause for your chest pain.

I have diabetes and high cholesterol. Doctor prescribed medicines n I'm taking from past 5 months. My question is, I read review about abana tab from Himalaya company which reduces cholesterol and high b.p. Also. Can I switch to that tab instead of my regular tabs?

As long as a medicine/ procedure/activity has a desired effect and most importantly without causing any unacceptable harm, then it's fine. But the problem with our traditional branch of medicine is that they are not evidence based and there is no proven mechanism of action. Decisions is yours to make.

I have pain in my leg and after walking 10 or 15 min my heart beats are getting louder what should I do.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello. If you are not habituated to this kind of routine or when there is some internal problem in your body, it responds like this only. Management: Always keep yourself well hydrated even in between the walks. As dehydration leads to cramps and muscular spasm. Maintain daily intake of healthy food specially of fruits, green vegetables, nuts, flaxseeds which contains omega-3 fatty acids for healthy tissues, milk, milk products and eggs which are supposed to be complete food they contain protein, vitamins and minerals which are required for wear and tear. Also, take enough of rest which helps in rejuvenation of whole body! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both thrice daily for 4 weeks.

After stent, you should be on a good diet and exercise regime. Get your cholesterol checked frequently and echo done regularly. If your heart function is good, slowly increase your exercise as adviced by your cardiologist and physiotherapist. Practice to relax and be happy, your health will be good.

Hi all, I am 27 years old. I have fast heart beat since last two or three months but since last some day's it's quite faster. I had my Ecg with two different doctors they said ECG is normal. Now. Don't understand the reason for palpitations. Please let me know and how to cure it .my heart rate was 115 shown in ECG. Is there any effect on heart please let me know.

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Check your hemoglobin. Anemia leads to increased heart rate because given concentration of hemoglobin carries less oxygen and to carry needed amount of oxygen, heart has to pump same volume of blood more number of times which you perceive as increased heart rate and palpitation. If your hemoglobin level comes to be normal, then anxiety may be the reason behind your tachycardia or increased heart rate.

Hi, I am 31, 53 kgs, my LDL is 176, what are the possible effects of it on my health, do I need to worry? What further investigation is needed? I experience chest pain at times.

MD - Physicion
General Physician, Delhi
your ldl level is bit high, but you didn't mention your hdl level. If your HDL is > 40-45, don't worry. Do 20 min of brisk walking every day your ldl will become normal. No need for medications for chest pain - get a tmt done.
