Sandeep Khurana, MD, FACC's Expert Contributions
  • BP high

    Yes you should treat this (and also first undergo evaluation to exclude /secondary, /i.e., correctable and potentially curable causes of hypertension since this is too young to have such a BP, unless you are overweight). READ MORE

  • What drinks should I avoid with high blood pressure?

    Sugar containing drinks and alcohol. READ MORE

  • Can you run with a heart stent?

    Sure, you can. READ MORE

  • What should your blood pressure be after a stent?

    Blood pressure, in general should be less than 120/80 mmHg at most times; this parameter need not change after a stent. READ MORE

  • Cholesterol panel

    You may have familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), a genetic condition that causes elevated bad cholesterol (starts at birth if not before) that can shorten life and cause early heart attacks if not treated early in life- this is likely FH if you are not a diabetic and if your thyroid and kidney function are normal (i.e., have no other medical reason for such a high level of LDL-C),. READ MORE

  • Cholesterol levels

    No. This profile is expected to be protective against development of atherosclerosis. READ MORE

  • cLVH

    What is you coronary artery calcium (CAC) score; and Lp(a) level, Apo B and Apo A level? These pieces of information will better inform you about heart attack risk (not the Echocardiogram). READ MORE

    It depends; every case is unique/different. READ MORE

  • Can you drink alcohol after heart stent surgery?

  • my personal bradycardia and chronic fatigue

    Without more information (about your history, details of the symptoms of fatigue, examination of the ECG rhythm to determine if it is sinus bradycardia or if there is AV block) it is difficult to attribute resting heart rate to your symptoms. In addition to above information, laboratory tests may also help determine the reason for fatigue. Please consult your family doctor - if you would like an evaluation and live in the Grand Rapids area, I'd be happy to help. S Khurana MD READ MORE
