Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
A borderline LVH- left ventricular hypertrophy is seen due to mild hypertension or an increased cardiac workload. It is suggestive of an increase in cardiac muscle size due to the increased work load.
The increase in heart beat after a meal or exercise is a normal physiological variation and is not suggestive of any pathology. You can get an ECG done to detect any heart rate rhythm disorders.
The difficulty in breathing s a worrisome finding and needs a further evaluation by a cardiologist.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Whether there is any treatment in Homeopathy for Interstitial lung disease? My mother (58 yrs) is suffering in Interstitial lung disease since last 3 months. Chest X-ray showed B/L infiltrates, ANA -ve, RA -ve, Colonoscopy showed rectal+recto sigmoid ulcer, HRCT showed interstitial lung disease. HRCT chest was reviewed to find extensive interstitial thickening with GGO NSIP like picture. Transbronchial biopsy revealed non-specific interstitial fibroisis. ECHO showed border line LVH, diastolic dysfunction, mild TR, IVC engorged, respiratory variation absent, turbulent flow seen at draining site of hepatic vein. Patient was having postural change in BP with reeling of head & tinnitus . She is taking the following medicines: Tab Pan (40), Tab Thyronorm (25 mcg), Cap Gemcal (500 mg), Cap Alpha D3, Tab Stemetil MD (5), Tab Stugeron (25), Tab Nurvmax (75), Tab Dilzem CD (90), Tab Mucomix (600), tab Azuran (50 mg), Syp Looz, Tab Rivotril (0.5), tab Gemidro (150), Tab Prednisolone (40 mg), tab Vertin (24), Cap Orofer XT, calcirol Granules. All the doctors are saying there is no medicine for this disease & the above medicines are only to give her relief not to cure the disease. I am really feeling hopeless. If really there is any treatment in Homeopathy for the same? Please help me.
