Cholesterol is a type of fat. It has both good and bad effects on the body. Your body uses cholesterol to make hormones and to build and maintain nerve cells. However, when your body has too much cholesterol, deposits of fat in the blood called plaque form inside blood vessel walls. The blood vessel walls thicken and the vessels become narrower (a condition called atherosclerosis). This change in the blood vessels reduces blood flow through the blood vessels, possibly leading to heart attacks or strokes. Most of the cholesterol in your blood is made by your liver from the fats, carbohydrates, and proteins you eat. You also get cholesterol by eating animal products such as meat, eggs, and dairy products. How is cholesterol measured? When you get your cholesterol checked, your health care provider will give you a number for your total cholesterol level. You can use the chart below to see if your total cholesterol is high.   Total Cholesterol Level (mg/dL) less than 200 good 200 to 239 borderline high 240 or above high When your cholesterol is measured and found to be high, your health care provider may also check the amount of LDL (low-density lipoproteins) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins) in your blood. LDL and HDL carry cholesterol through your blood. LDLs carry a lot of cholesterol, leave behind fatty deposits on your artery walls, and contribute to heart disease. HDLs do the opposite. They clean the artery walls and remove extra cholesterol from the body, thus lowering the risk of heart disease. LDL is called "bad" cholesterol. (You can think of "L" for "lousy" cholesterol.) HDL is called "good" cholesterol (think of "H" for "healthy" cholesterol). It is good to have low levels of LDL and high levels of HDL. The recommended levels of LDL are shown in the following chart:   Recommended LDL Cholesterol Level (mg/dL) Less than 160 For most people Less than 130 If you have an increased risk of heart disease Less than 100 If you have heart disease, diabetes, peripheral artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, or symptomatic carotid artery disease For HDL, a level below 40 mg/dL is too low. The recommended HDL level is 45 mg/dL or higher. How can I control my cholesterol level? Cholesterol levels can usually be controlled by eating right, exercising, and not smoking. Follow these diet guidelines to help control your cholesterol: Reduce the amount of cholesterol in your diet. The American Heart Association recommends eating no more than 250 to 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Eat less fat. Fats should contribute no more than 30% of your daily calories. Only 10% of the fat you eat should be saturated fat. Some kinds of fats are better than others. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are better than saturated fats. Monounsaturated fats are found in olive oil, canola oil, and avocados. Polyunsaturated fats are found in fish and some vegetable oils. Saturated fat raises your blood cholesterol because it makes it hard for the body to clear the cholesterol away. Saturated fat is found in different amounts in almost all foods. Butter, some oils, meat, and poultry fat contain a lot of saturated fat. Adjust the amount of calories you eat and exercise regularly to maintain a lean body weight. To control the amount of fat and cholesterol you eat: Check food labels for fat and cholesterol content. Limit the amount of butter and margarine you eat.Use sunflower, safflower, soybean, canola, corn, or olive oil rather than tropical oils such as palm or coconut. Use salad dressings and margarine made with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.Use egg whites or egg substitutes rather than whole eggs. Replace whole-milk dairy products with nonfat or low-fat milk, cheese, spreads, and yogurt. Eat skinless chicken, turkey, fish, and meatless entrees more often than red meat.Choose lean cuts of meat and trim off all visible fat. Keep portion sizes moderate. Avoid fatty desserts such as ice cream, cream-filled cakes, and cheesecakes. Choose fresh fruits, nonfat frozen yogurt, Popsicles, etc. Reduce the amount of fried foods, vending machine food, and fast food you eat. Limit the amount of nuts you eat, especially nuts high in saturated fat. Examples of nuts that are especially high in saturated fat are cashews, pistachios, and Brazil and macadamia nuts. Eat fruits and vegetables (especially fresh fruits and leafy vegetables), beans, and whole grains daily. The fiber in these foods helps lower cholesterol. Look for low-fat or nonfat varieties of the foods you like to eat, or look for substitutes. Exercise goes hand-in-hand with a healthy diet for controlling cholesterol. Exercise helps because it: Keeps your weight down. Decreases your total cholesterol level. Decreases your LDL (bad cholesterol).Increases your HDL (good cholesterol). A good exercise program includes aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is any activity that keeps your heart rate up (such as swimming, jogging, walking, and bicycling). You should get 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least every other day. If you haven't been exercising, ask your health care provider for an exercise prescription and start your new exercise program slowly. If you smoke, quit. Smoking increases your risk of heart disease because it lowers HDL levels. High cholesterol may run in families. Know your family history and discuss it with your health care provider. In summary, to control your cholesterol level: Eat healthy. Get regular exercise. Don't smoke. Check your cholesterol yearly. For low Vit D, take Vit D Supplements, once a week, and spend atleast 20 min in sunlight.

Pain in the Hands or Legs!

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCh - Vascular Surgery, F.V.E.S
Vascular Surgeon, Bangalore
Pain in the Hands or Legs!

Problems with the arteries and veins present in the hands or legs can lead to vascular disorders. The arteries carry blood from the heart to other parts of the body in order to deliver nutrients and oxygen. The veins carry the blood back to the heart, after the nutrients have been used up. If these blood vessels of the arteries or veins become blocked or narrowed, it can lead to a vascular blockage.

A vascular blockage that occurs in the hands or legs comes under the category of Peripheral Artery Disease or PAD. These type of disorders are less common in the upper extremities of the arms or hands than in the lower extremities of legs. Few of the signs for the same are:

  1. Pain and difficulty in movement due to decreased blood flow
  2. Numbness or weakness of leg or fingertips
  3. Sores on the toes or feet
  4. If the blockage is deep, symptoms of redness, swelling, extreme pain or cramping can be experienced
  5. Abnormal color changes in the fingertips
  6. Ulcers or wounds that don’t heal
  7. Skin sensitivity problems when in cold temperatures

How can it be diagnosed?
The blockage can be detected by various methods namely-

  1. Physical Examination – Your doctor may find decreased pulse at armpit, wrist or fingers, full veins, masses, wounds or gangrene.
  2. Doppler or Ultrasound examination to determine the blood flow in the arteries and veins
  3. MRI Scan of the affected area to pay special attention to the blood vessels
  4. Cold Stress Test
  5. Arteriography to show clear blood vessel details
  6. Angiography to map blockages and narrowing of the arteries

What are the Risk Factors for Peripheral Artery Disease?
An individual is at risk for developing vascular blockages in the hands or legs if one or more of the following factors are present:

  1. Smoking
  2. Diabetes
  3. Heredity Factors – A personal or family history of blood vessel disease
  4. High blood pressure
  5. High cholesterol
  6. Aging – People aged above 50 years and older are more prone to vascular blockage

Can it be treated?
Treatments for vascular blockage can vary depending on the age, cause of the blockage, intensity and overall well-being.

Treatments can include:

  1. Self-care – Reducing risk factors and making lifestyle changes to quit smoking, sedentary life or diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol management can reverse symptoms of vascular disease.
  2. Medications – A variety of drugs can be prescribed to lower the risk and progression of narrowing blood vessels or prevent blood clotting.
  3. Interventional Procedures – Minimally invasive surgery like saloon angioplasty, stenting or removal of artery plaque build-up.
  4. Surgery If the blockage is severe, surgery may be performed to lessen the vessel narrowing, reconstruct the artery or tie it off, depending on the circumstances.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

It is good you realized the fact. It happens because of excessive friendly relations with boys. Sharing problems, mutual contact, excessive privacy, no objections, no risks from law. No one is not suspected your relations. Availability of boys in sex mood. There are so many reasons to be attracted towards boys. Initial days onwards negativity towards girls. Rejection from girls also reason to develop homo sexuality thoughts. Once you do it may be addiction. Your mind repeatedly ask homosex. It is also no cost also. Then you easily go. But in future you may not enjoy with girls. Your life is miserable when you marry. So initial time onwards you please erase thought in your friend. Touch lady skin then you get more satisfaction. Better to make friendliness with girls. Then you enjoy natural sex in healthy manner. So please change your mind set. Enjoy real taste of sex. Ok best wishes.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Delhi
Consult a physiotherapist if you have experienced a fall recently and the discomfort caused due to it has not subsided.

My mother is a BP & Sugar patient for last 9yrs. Usually her average monthly Sugar check stands at around Fasting 116 & PP 175. But for last 3months her Fasting sugar showing around 150-160 & PP showing around 180-190. Though our regular physician has changed earlier tablets and also increased the doses with the new tablets, but still her fasting sugar level is not coming down. Please suggest us something. Her tablets for sugar are: 1) GLIMEPIRIDE & METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE (SR) Brand Name: GLIMESTAR M1.(1tab before breakfast and 1 tab before dinner). 2) VOGLIBOSE TABLETS IP. Brand Name: VOGLIMAC 0.3 (1 tab before breakfast/before lunch & also before dinner).

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, the present treatment looks quite good. Fasting and pp levels are a bit high, but those can be managed by following a more strict diet and exercise schedule. I feel there is no further need to add any drugs. Her bmi is 27.55 kg/ m2, which shows she is overweight. Her ideal body weight should be 59 kgs. So all her food intake (calories) should be calculated considering that weight and extent of daily physical exercise and blood sugar levels. Even if she reduces 5 to 7 kgs, sugar level and bp will improve. So please look at that aspect rather than just adding one more drug. With regards.
