Hello and hope you are doing well.

The goals to be achieved in lipid profile control are:
Total cholesterol - < 200mg/dl
Triglycerides -  35mg/dl
LDL - < 100mg/dl

The other risk factors for coronary artery disease are diabetes, hypertension, cigarette smoking, obesity and a familial tendency to the disease.

Dietary suggestions:
Reduce the total fat content of you diet to <30% of calories. Of which of saturated fat<10% of calories, polyunsaturated fat <10% of calories and mono unsaturated fat <10% of calories. Increased dietary intake of fiber rich foods like oat bran will help. Diet should be rich in antioxidant vitamins found primarily in fruits and vegetables. Reduce energy intake to achieve ideal body weight. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Exercise regularly, it is multi beneficial in that besides helping to lose weight and reduce cholesterol levels, it reduces stress and helps improve blood supply to the heart.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Please don't worry. Your lipid profile values have improved. If with movement you are getting pain, its is not because of angina or cardiac pain. So, consult an orthopedician for the pain. Follow good lifestyle measures. Try yoga and meditation they have calming effects. And go for long stress free walks.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Dear Dr. Anitha,
My chest pain is still same as it was brfore. My Dr. Put me on anti-ulcer drugs. (Stelabid & Cinitapride 1mg.) Now a days i m feeling when i climbs stairs sometimes it feels my heart stops for 1 or 2 sec. & then it beats faster. It takes time to get normal. 1 more thing when i goes for stools & if it delays then i feel a strange pressure (not pain) in my chest. It makes me so worry. I never smoke or drink in my life & am just 30 year old then why these problems coming before me. Is it heart related, What should i do..? Plz rply.

Irregular heartbeat could indicate rhythm abnormalities. This can be detected by an EKG and if needed holter monitoring. Please check with your doctor.
