If one got high cholesterol issue then what precautions should be taken?

If one got high cholesterol issue then what precautions should be taken?
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.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

If your father is nearly 7 feet as mentioned above, I will not recommend weight reduction except reduction in salt and sugar which he must have been advised after angioplasty & being diabetic on no sugar. his bp is low. give him more fluids and get checked again. if it is one time reading , do not worry and keep him hydrated by insisting on drinking more water. if bp is constantly lower than 100 , which is highly unlikely but do get checked by your doctor to know the reasons of low bp like low thyroid,anemia.. regarding recent heart attack , do write back about investigations done and numbers of blocks. angioplasty has been done for 1 or more blocks ? aftercare for angioplasty is routine prevention of a heart attack like eating right,moderate exercise,no smoking and no negative stress.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

Good to know that your reports for heart are normal, blood sugar pp levels are under control. Keep it up reduce anxiety. Change food habits so that there is no need to take ppi s group for acidity (lots of side effects are reported over long term use) drink some warm liquid every 2 hours so that acid in stomach is washed away, does not get chance to get collected. You can take warm water with lemon and honey (calories? cut it in other items) warm clear soup. Green tea with lemon coconut water-fresh. Ginger tea. Dry toast absorbs acid too but look into calories and make adjustments. Good luck.

No you should not wait for heart attack to start with so much of blockages, she is free from symptoms now, get angioplasty done and feel free from the dangers of having to live with blocks in major blood vessels of heart.

Dear , it is very nice to hear from a gentleman who has fought a heart disease and is trying to lead an active life. Since at a younger age you have been posted for a cabg and not a ptca (angioplasty) I feel you must be having a minimum 3 vessel disease. I suggest be a bit cautious, the ejection fraction of 50% is healthy and post 3 -4 months should reach upto 60% but it again depends upon the overall health of the endocardium before and after the surgery. I suggest let your cardiac surgeon direct you on the level of exertion as he is the best person to know your case. Best of luck.

At this age and BP range he needs lifestyle changes only and no medicine required. Yoga, meditation, Pranayam; lemon juice drink will settle it.
