Cholesterol is a waxlike substance which is found in lipids (fats) in our blood. Our body needs cholesterol to build healthy cells, and produces certain hormones, whereas, a high cholesterol can increase the risk of heart disease and leave a negative impact on health.

High cholesterol may develop fatty deposits in our blood vessels, and these deposits make to difficult for sufficient blood to flow through our arteries. In this case, our heart may not get its required oxygen-rich blood which, in turn increases the risk of a heart attack. A decreased blood flow to your brain might cause a stroke.

Most Common Lifestyle Diseases That Affect Us!

There are diseases which affect us in spite of us trying to keep them away as far as possible, and then there are lifestyle diseases, which are the result of our own mistakes. It can be said that lifestyle diseases are those which occur on account of the decisions we make and the actions we commit. Having said that would it not be interesting to know more about lifestyle diseases?

There are various kinds of lifestyle diseases, which affect various parts of the body. For instance, if a person drinks a significant amount of alcohol, more than what he or she should, then he may soon be affected by a lifestyle disease in the form of liver cirrhosis. Apart from just the alcohol, this condition can also be caused on account of chronic hepatitis.

  1. Stroke: A lot of people are of the opinion that a stroke is something, which only strikes old people. However, this is not correct. In fact, there is quite a bit of trouble can be caused if this opinion is held and people allow themselves to not care enough about their health using this as justification. Statistically, up to 15% of the cases of stroke in a country such as India occur to people who have not even reached the age of 40. Surprising and scary at the same time, isn’t it?
  2. Kidney problems: When people think of lifestyle diseases, they most likely think of problems, which are related to the heart. While it can be said that a heart attack on account of bad lifestyle choices has the highest visibility, even parts of the body, which are rarely thought of like the kidneys, can kick up trouble in the form of nephritis. So, what exactly happens when a person has nephritis? Simply put, the kidneys swell up and this causes a lot of pain, which could have been avoided with a reasonable amount of foresight and effort. When this occurs, kidneys create trouble when they need to perform their primary function of purifying blood and complications related to the kidneys can really have a magnified impact on other parts of the body.
  3. Heart disease: Finally, addressing the elephant in the room, when it comes to lifestyle diseases - heart disease. Around 31% of people who die every year worldwide fall prey to it and the main culprits behind heart failures include smoking, diabetes and very high cholesterol levels.

High Risk Pregnancy
High Risk Pregnancy: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Hello everyone. I m Dr. Garima Kaur, consultant gynaecologist and obstetrician working at Arshia Clinic in Pitampura, and at Max Super Specialty Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. I have been practicing for the last thirteen years, but I would like to talk about high risk pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a physiological condition but in case of any abnormalities in the mother or baby s condition, it is labeled as high risk pregnancy. High risk pregnancy would include maternal conditions like high HP or hypertension in pregnancy, high sugars, or diabetes in pregnancy, low hemoglobin, or anemia pregnancy, heart disease in the mother, blood group like Rh negative, etc. Baby conditions like twins, triplets, IUGR, or intrauterine growth restriction babies or premature babies, etc. High risk pregnancy can cause threat to the life of mother or her baby, so in such situations, we have to have a closer assessment of the patient. Specific diet and lifestyle that has to be followed by the patient is explained to them. They are called for more frequent visits at the clinic to monitor their conditions.

Investigations like ultrasound, blood, urine are done at more frequent intervals, to monitor their condition properly. Any timely intervention that is indicated in their situation is done. Prophylactic steroid injections, if required, to boost baby s maturity, are given. Overall, all efforts are made to make the baby and mother healthy as close as possible to the normal pregnancy, so that even they can enjoy a healthy and uneventful pleasant pregnancy and delivery. I would like to highlight some home remedies for the modifiable conditions which can cause later in life a high risk pregnancy. The modifiable conditions would include anemia, which can be corrected by simple home measures like taking a balanced diet rich in iron sources like green leafy vegetables, a high protein diet like daals, paneer, milk, sprouts, and soya bean, etc. even obesity can be curtailed in time by regular exercise and a diet low in carbs, fats, etc. this was in short about my profile, and about the problems of high risk pregnancy.

For any update or queries you can contact me at Arshia Clinic Pitampura, or book an appointment at Lybrate. You can also meet me at Max Super Specialty Hospital Shalimar Bagh. Thank you.

Benefits and Side Effects of High Protein Diet
Hello.

My name is Dr. Lochan. I am a physiotherapist in musculoskeletal and a dietitian.

Today we are going to cover a very important topic and a very in topic, keto diet and high protein diet. First of all you need to understand what is protein? Protein it is a body building block it gives you energy or turn into fat. But our body can t consume too much of amino acid and proteins which can be used later on so ultimately if you take high, access of high protein diet it will convert into fat. So keep in mind whatever protein you are having it should be the optimum quantity just not to gain your muscle it will gain your weight again otherwise. Yes with the protein diet you can lose faster, what only you need to do, you only need to cut the portion of carbs and make a portion for protein. Now the question is how much protein do you require on daily bases. Only 30% of the calories you require for the protein on the daily basis. For example 1 gram of protein is ok for 1 kg of weight. If your weight is 60 kg you need only 1 gram of protein. Just keep in mind not to take too much weight otherwise this can cause side effects which will tell you in a later stage. Second if we are talking about carbs, 50 to 150 grams of carbohydrates are sufficient for daily basis for a good weight loss. Now if we discuss the side effect of high protein diet, there can be many disorders it can effect on the fitness level. That is the main reason why people come to us and say we are having a multiple joint pain, we are having some dehydration problems, and we feel fatigue instead of taking high protein diet. So what are the side effects? High protein diet stores in your body and weakens your kidney. I can cause a damage to your kidney. How because high protein intake causes dehydration because kidney works continuously to wash out all the extra protein through urine and causes dehydration ultimately. So you should provide access of high protein to prevent other body organs. Second it can cause access of body fat it can cause a very important disorder which is a multiple joint pain. Multiple joint pain is condition in which you affect with arthritis rheumatoid arthritis reduction in joint space, lubricant can get reduced and you feel pain all the time. Then people say after doing gym they are having pain but when we were doing exercises because protein you were absorbing. Now if you are not doing exercises protein gets collected and causes joint pain. So you should provide high protein diets. And lastly we are going to discuss the conditions in which you should avoid keto diets and a high protein diet, it is very much important for every person to know your metabolism what can suit on your body. Condition are like if you are having already kidney effected like high creatinine level, if you are diabetic, if you eye side is too much weak, if you are having arthritis, if you are already having, multiple joint pain not only taking protein can improve your pain but it can cause more pain it can degeneration, then ultimately ligaments rupture, then problem can start because I am a physiotherapist. We see daily patients related to diet, related to physio, related to pain, they come so we correlate what can be the issues. So we avoid high protein diets. It should be taken again I am saying it should be taken in an optimum quantity. So keep in mind take proper portion of carbs, proper portions of fats, proper portion of protein all together.

Thank you for watching our video if you need a detail diet plan related to metabolism related to any deficiency of your height, weight you can us. Thank you so much.
