Common cause of nerve damage is often overlooked due to lack of awareness

1. 41-year old Mr Sheel presented with tingling, burning sensation & numbness of both feet of one year duration. Symptoms were present throughout the day, however, they worsened during nights.
2. Mr Sheel consulted a general physician, who ordered a few blood tests, which were all "normal". He suspected a diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy (damage of nerves in feet) and referred him for a neurologist's opinion for confirmation of diagnosis.
3. Neurologist evaluated Mr Sheel and found evidence of sensory neuropathy involving lower limbs (confirmed by nerve conduction studies). He also ordered a few additional blood tests, which were all "normal". He advised nerve biopsy test to find out the cause of nerve damage.

Lowering triglyceride with medicines does not result in better clinical outcome

1. High serum triglyceride levels are associated with increased incidence of heart attack, stroke and death. In a recent research, the effect of pemafibrate (which lowers triglycerides) was tested.
2. 10,497 patients with type 2 diabetes, mild-to-moderate hypertriglyceridemia (triglyceride level, 200 to 499 mg/dL), and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels, 40 mg/dL or lower received pemafibrate (0.2-mg tablets twice daily) or matching placebo.
3. The median baseline fasting triglyceride level was 271 mg per deciliter, HDL cholesterol level 33 mg per deciliter, and LDL cholesterol level 78 mg per deciliter. All patents were on statins.
The median follow-up of patients was 3.4 years.

Realized friends are your strength and support system no matter how far and wide they maybe spread. Talking to a friend or chatting to them even briefly can greatly reduce stress levels! #friendship
Twitter became a source of dissipating health information and education which is a favorite thing for me to do. Grew a good number of followers over the last 3 years. #heartattack , #cardiacarrest, #prevention of heart disease being the major topics. Hoping to make a difference!

A survivor of #cardiacarrest. 61y old guy. Post angioplasty and stenting, May, 2022. He said..
"I want to make sure I don't get into trouble again Dr! I've seen how much stress you and your team were under when I was on Cath lab table to save my life" #MedTwitter #HeartAttack
When a patient comes in with heart attack and cardiac arrest or cardiogenic shock, the entire cardiac team is put into test. Reviving the patient, talking and explaining to relatives, quickly shifting to cath lab, doing an emergency angiogram and angioplasty. Making sure the……
Despite all valiant efforts, both cardiac arrest and cardiogenic shock have poor survival. Out of hospital cardiac arrests have the worst outcome. Hence the need to learn #CPR with which atleast some people can be saved.

Lifelong endurance sport participation on top of a healthy lifestyle is not associated with a more favorable coronary plaque composition.

1. The dose response between long-term endurance exercises such as running or cycling & coronary artery disease (CAD) is a subject of debate
1a. A recent study looked at the association between long-term endurance exercises and prevalence of coronary artery plaques.
2. Three groups of people were selected:
Group 1 had started exercising below age 30,
group 2 started after age 30, and
3rd group maintained healthy lifestyle with minimal exercises.

The risk of MI was higher among those who slept <5 hours or <6 hours as compared to those who slept 7-8 hours/night.…
3. Excessive #sleep also increased the risk of #heartattack.

The risk of bleeding with #aspirin outweighs its benefits in people without Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD)

1. Aspirin is sometimes recommended to prevent #heartattack and stroke in people without ASCVD. A recent research looked at its benefits versus risks.
2. Aspirin reduced the risk of heart attack by 15% but increased the risk of major bleeding by 48%, making effects of aspirin overall negative.
Aspirin did not reduce the risk of death.

#economy of #cigarettes: Cost, returns (if invested), impact on #Health

1. A pack of cigarettes costs Rs 330. For a month, it would cost Rs 9900 (one pack/day).
A 30-year old person has the option of smoking one pack/day or investing this amount in #mutualfunds via #SIP route.
2. If Rs 10000/ is invested every month in mutual funds via SIP route (since age 30) and the expected return is 10% per annum, the savings would become a whopping 2.28 crores after 30 years (when he turns 60).
3. In addition, not smoking would reduce the risk of #heartattack, #stroke and several #cancers.
Medical insurance premium would also be lower.
So, healthcare costs would be significantly lesser for a non-smoker (as compared to a smoker).

2. Increasing severity
3. Associated sweating
4. Not relieved by antacids
5. + chest/jaw/arm pain #heartattack
Typical versus atypical symptoms of heart attack

With #heartattack trending. Most cases, proper CPR is not performed. Majority of Indians doesn't know the basic first aid skills. Once, you ascertain the breathlessness, nopulse. Remember to do 2inches of chess compression. It can save heart attack patients
In india, there is a political lobbies to fight for teaching proud history, languages(3+), religious stuff but none want student to learn life skills like first aid, basic hardware, local governance/geography,.etc. last yr an 28yr old IISc student died, none around knows of CPR
Chest compression not chess, uff auto complete.

माननीय प्रधानमंत्री जी,
आज कल अचानक हार्ट फेलियर के कारण काफी लोग,खास कर युवाओं की आकस्मिक/असमय मृत्यु हो रही है।
1)ऐसी असमय मृत्यु का कारण ढूंढने के लिए एक रिसर्च टीम गठित करे जो इन मृत्यु का कारण ढूंढे ओर साथ ही सभी हॉस्पिटल्स को एडवाइजरी जारी करे।
2)एक नेशनल पोर्टल बनाये जो ऐसी आकस्मिक मृत्यु को दर्ज करे।
3)देशवासियो से अपील है कि ऐसी घटनाओं को एक जगह एकत्रित करके लगातार सरकार और सोशल मीडिया पर शेयर करे ताकि जागरूकता फैल सके,साथ ही डॉक्टर्स,हॉस्पिटल,रिसर्चर्स,रिसर्च संस्थानों को भी टैग करे ।
4)कोरोना वैक्सीन ओर कोरोना का इंसान पर क्या प्रभाव पड़ा है इसकी भी रिसर्च होनी चाहिए।
ये रिसर्च जल्द से जल्द प्रकाशित करनी चाहिए।
