I am 65 years old male. I have high cholesterol. I am taking medicine for hypertension. Suggest remedy.
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. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hi my cousin is suffering from pimples. His chest and back has some pimples like. Please tell.
Dear lybrateuser, -to avoid pimples one has to keep the skin surface clean so that the pores on the skin surface remain open as blocked pores lead to pimples, this can be done by having a warm water bath after sweating -use 1-2% salicylic acid lotion on the affected parts, clean with warm water, dry for 5-10 min, then apply lightly, can apply cream also, do not rub it off -avoid stress as the hormones released during stress give rise to pimples -restrict spicy, fried & junk food, have more of fruits & vegetables & 8-10 glasses of water for a healthy skin, also avoid direct exposure to sunlight for a long time -if not much improvement then consult a doctor as you may require a course of antibiotics.

I have been smoking since last few days. After that I have a pain in the chest what could be reasons.

I have been smoking since last few days. After that I have a pain in the chest what could be reasons.
There could be very many reasons. I suggest you meet with a doctor to determine the exact problem and the cause. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Gerd is gastroesophagial reflux disease. Reflux is due to abnormality in antireflux mechanism either due to functional or structural problems. Structural problems like large hiatal hernia needs to be corrected doing surgery otherwise it recurs. Reflux for long is bad for health as it can give rise to serious health issues in future if neglected for long. Avoid chocolates/ tea/ coffee/ ice-creams/ overeating at night. Dinner should be light and early. Go to sleep after 2 hours of taking dinner. Lie on your left side as it prevents refluxes. Place 2 pillows beneath your head at night. Avoid late night sleep. Consult a specialist for antireflux medications.

Treatment depends on the symptoms and any major untoward incident in your life and if you can control it without medication than it's better to get it checked every six months.

I am 27 years old I am suffering from high blood pressure and pain in my heart from 5 days. Please advise.
Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Dear Lybrateuser, - At your age chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety or sedentary habit - chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time, have 4-5 meals including snacks rather than three large meals, do not lye down for about an hour after meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - avoid fried, spicy & junk food, also restrict intake of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day - have 7-8 glasses of water for sufficient hydration - do regular exercise like, walking, jogging, swimming, playing games, also do yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min daily - take syrup Gelusil, 2 teaspoonful three times a day half an hour after meals - if not much improvement then get an x- ray chest done to know the exact cause & consult a doctor.

Dear sir, high blood pressure has longterm health consequences. What is important is that your blood pressure remains in control by whichever means. Its not necessary to take medicine if your blood pressure is controlled by diet, exercise, yoga etc. But if not you should continue taking medicine along with lifestyle measures.
