HI, i am 34 years old with height 5ft 2 . My weight was 64 3 months back , now it is 58. I am having breathing trouble for last 3 months and the it was found that i have LVH heart disease caused due to high blood pressure . At that time it was 120/100. LDL Cholestrol was 123. My doctor advised me to take ENAM 2.5 daily to reduce the blood pressure .now the blood presure is normal but the breathing problem is continuing. I took the advice of another cardiologist who adviced to take AZTOR 75 daily after dinner and said that this is due to some disease called ischamia and asked me to visit after 6 weeks. If the problem remains after that also then they should go for angiography. I have done TMT test which came positive . My question is what is ischamia and how severe it is for heart attack

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
