Oh! why you are so nervous now itself. The doctor has said your heart is weak and you need an angiogram. Itis O.K.robably he is douting you are having some heart ailment. It will be cleared or confirme in the angiogram. It is only atest and you need not worry. Depending upon the findings you cardiologist may like to have some proceedure and now-a-days it is very common and also very simple. For your information I like to mention that I had angiogram twice ie. in 1991 and 2002 and both times the doctors found blockages in the arteries and I had by-pass surgeries. Very few people have such surgeries twice in their life time. i am alright now and doing everything. i am 64. So do not worry and you will be cured and alright. What is angiogram - Angiography or arteriography is a medical imaging technique in which an X-ray picture is taken to visualize the inner opening of blood filled structures, including arteries, veins and the heart chambers. Its name comes from the Greek words angeion, "vessel", and graphien, "to write or record". The X-ray film or image of the blood vessels is called an angiograph, or more commonly, an angiogram.

My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with Fructose Malabsorption, she has had a distended stomach, pain, headaches, and gas. She is otherwise healthy. Her breath test baseline was 3 parts per million, 30 min was 7 parts, 60 min was 32 parts, 90 min was 43 parts, and 120 min was 25 parts. I read another persons test results were much higher, baseline 8 parts and 2 hours 250 parts. Do my daughter s lower results mean that her Malabsorption is not as severe? Is there any comparison of results in this way?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
