Heart Attack Questions

My mother had undergone angioplasty in October as she suffered from a mild heart attack. Doctors have advised her to walk for at least 30 minutes. She is suffering from Diabetes as well. Her age is 57 years. Both diabetes and BP is under control. But when she walks for 3 rounds in the park, she gets a mild pain near chest and shoulder for a few seconds. When she sits, it goes off and after that she can walk for another 3 rounds without pain. Any cause of concern?

The good news is that there are steps to take to reduce your risk for heart disease if you have diabetes If you have diabetes, heart disease can be a serious concern. In fact, cardiovascular disease leading to heart attack or stroke is by far the leading cause of death in both men and women with diabetes, says Control your weight. One of the most important things you can do if you have diabetes is maintain a healthy weight. If you are overweight, talk to a registered dietitian about healthy ways to lose weight. Get regular physical activity. There is a significant body of research that proves the myriad cardiovascular benefits of regular physical activity (that goes beyond weight loss). Start off slowly, and build a plan that works well for you and meets your needs. Don’t smoke. If you already do, make plans to begin a smoking cessation program. "Nicotine narrows and restricts blood vessels; diabetes will also do the same thing to your blood vessels. You can't change having diabetes. But you can stop damage caused by nicotine, Maintain tight control over glucose. Tight control can prevent many complications from diabetes and also protects your heart. Shoot for an A1C reading of less than 7%. Lower your LDL cholesterol (the "bad" type). Both the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association recommend an LDL cholesterol goal of less than 100 mg/dl. Control your blood pressure. All people with diabetes should aim for a blood pressure reading of less than 130/80, advises Dr. Ganda.

It is advised to eat plenty fruit and other fibre food to prevent heart deceases. However sugar level is likely to increase due to fruit intake what is the remedy?

Hello, Thanks for the query. Intake of fruits is good in persons who have no diabetes. Even in those with diabetes when blood glucose is well controlled some fruits in limited quantity are good enough. For a person without diabetes there is absolutely no problem at all. As regards other fiber containing foods, intake of those foods does not cause a marked increase in glucose. The restrictions are specifically for a person with diabetes only. Thanks.

It is very harmful to your body drinking 8cup of coffee everyday. You should minimise it gradually not more than 2 in a day.
