Hi, lybrate-user. You may be having non cardiac chest pain. Although not necessary at your age and particularly if you do not have diabetes or high bp, you can do one tmt to clear your doubt. For non cardiac chest pain you should not worry too much. Simple analgesic may be enough.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Chest pain at your age could be due to hyperacidity, stress, anxiety or sedentary habit -avoid spicy, fried & junk food, have fresh homemade food, do not skip meals, keep your meal timings fixed, have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than 3 large meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime, do not lye down immediately after meals -have 7-8 glasses of water per day for proper digestion -take syrup Gelusil, 2 teaspoonful 20 min after every meal -do regular exercises like walking, jogging, swimming for 30 min, also do yoga & deep breathing exercises for 5-10 min in the morning to relieve stress & for good blood circulation -keep yourself relaxed as getting excited can lead to pain -also get your BP checked up, if not much relief then have to do investigations & consult a doctor.

Dear Lybrateuser, - As your pain is more on inhalation & movement it may be due to muscular or bony problem - avoid exertion, bending, lifting weight, exercise till pain subsides - do hot fomentation three times a day - take pain killer tablet if pain is more after meals - do x- ray chest to find out the cause, consult a doctor if not much relief.

Yes genes and lifestyle does play an important role in heart attacks. One can't change genes but modifications of lifestyle does help gene'mutation' to be careful not to worry about heart attack risks. Keep sugar levels and bp under control, no smoking or exposure to pollution. Reduce stress and take only positive stress of fruitful result oriented activities as good feed back does help take away bad cholesterol, loneliness kills more people than bad cholesterol, stay blessed. Stay occupied and don't take everything to heart.

Good to know that every other test is normal except 1st degree av block. There is an elecrical circuit in our heart sending signals for regular heart beat, if the circuit gets affected, it needs artificial stimulation like a pacemaker so that erratic heart beats like fibrillations (rapid beats) or slow beats (sometimes complete stoppage!) can be avoided. Please ask your treating doctor without getting confused.

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?
Mr Debu, For treating both hypertension and diabetes taking prescribed drugs is essential. If you are already on drug treatment, then only the diet control and exercise will provide additional benefit. If you are looking for only diet and exercise without any drug treatment, then i am not sure whether there is any benefit. For hypertension your diet should contain less of salt (not more than 2.3 g a day). Our average diet gives almost 8 to 10 g of salt. (Sodium chloride). This means all food preparations made at home should contain minimal salt, no salt on table, no salt to be added to salads or fruits. No processed foods as all those contain very high quantity of salt. No pickles and papads, no salty substances fried shave or chivada etc. For diabetes your diet should give exact calories based on your Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity.You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Refrain from alcohol and smoking, red meat and egg yolk. Plus at lest 1 hour of exercise on all days of the week or at least on 5 days.

I am sher singh my mother suffering from blood pressure low. How I can help her. She is 52 years old.
Low blood pressure is an abnormal condition where a person’s blood pressure (the pressure of the blood against the walls of the blood vessels during and after each beat of the heart) is much lower than usual, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness or vertigo. Conditions that reduce the volume of blood, reduce cardiac output (the amount of blood pumped by the heart), and medications are frequent causes of low blood pressure. Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat low blood pressure symptoms but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for the treatment of low blood pressure symptoms that can be selected on the basis of cause, condition, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment you can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Breathlessness may be due several causes like cardiac diseases, respiratory diseases, anxiety to name a few. You have not mentioned whether you are a smoker, whether you take alcohol, the environment you live and food and other allergies. What is your daily diet what are the investigations you have done till now and their results and the medications you are currently taking. Get a comprehensive stool examination done as well as as you grow old digestive enzymes are not produced adequately so you might require supplementation use probiotics and fermented foods was a colonoscopy done any time because you are 70 for more specific advice detailed history is required Please take a consult.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, The symptoms that you have mentioned can definitely occur as a result of anxiety or depression. Considering the fact that your Echo and ECG are normal, anxiety /depression seems to be the most likely cause. You should seek a psychiatric consultation to undergo complete evaluation. Accordingly treatment can be initiated in form of medications or psychotherapy. Start doing relaxation exercises in a regular basis like meditation or deep breathing. I do hope that you are able to overcome your symptoms soon. Best wishes.

When all the reports related to heart are normal it is less likely to be cardiac. The cervical x ray shows involvement of nerve roots supplying areas on chest, back, shoulders, axilla etc hence the pain is most likely to be neuaralgia. Stretch your neck and avoid forward bending of neck. If needed a cervical collar may be used to prevent forward bending of neck. Do not use pillows below head and do not sit in or lie down in abnormal postures in sofas while viewing television. This will definitely help in reducing your pain.

Foods That Cleanse The Arteries Naturally

Foods That Cleanse The Arteries Naturally
Foods that cleanse the arteries naturally

Arteries are the blood vessels that carry oxygen to various parts of the body. Proper functioning of the arteries is directly related to well functioning organs as without oxygen, no organ can work well. There are many reasons due to which blockages and waste materials are stuck in these blood vessels. It is essential to clean them on regular basis, there are several food items available easily that cleanse the arteries naturally!

1. Tea- green tea is known popularly as an antioxidant that keeps your health and weight in check. But it is also a very strong cleanser of your arteries as well. Black tea too, one that has flavonoids in good proportions is also considered as an excellent cleanser of the artery.
2. Sesame seeds- sesame seeds have natural cardioprotective substances that are not only good for the artery but are very beneficial for absolute heart health. Sesame is majorly known for preventing the occurrence of atherosclerosis. Apart from that, sesame helps in cleaning all blood vessels.
3. Turmeric- any blockage or damage to the artery is immediately addressed by the turmeric that we consume regularly. It cures the damages almost immediately, preventing any aggravation or infection. Including turmeric in good proportions in daily diet is considered as a complete option to tackle any problems to the arteries.
4. Fruits- fruits are extremely beneficial both for the cardiovascular and blood health. Fibrous fruits especially are related to the arteries. Researchers suggest that having fibrous fruits first up in the morning, on an empty stomach ensures that all the arteries are cleaned and its functions are proceeding in the right manner.
5. Olive oil- fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 present in olive oil are excellent plaque removers. Consuming olive oil increases the omega substances in the body, so when something is about to harm the artery, they intervene and cleanse it completely.
