Winter and rising heart attack risk
I am 81+ with cardiac problem and by-pass surgery in 2003. I have also been diagnosed diabetic and put on insulin followed by injections to control the same.
Yes, in winters I have experienced mild heart attacks and been hospitalised. Earlier I was on a number of medicines. But from my last hospitalisation in July 2017, I am feeling much much better. My insulin level is absolutely controlled, so is with BP. After July 2017, in frustration I started taking "Darchini" powder in tea, Dana Methi, very regularly and have been on the prescribed food by the dietitian. Occasionally in the morning after breakfast I also take half tablet of Disprin. Food intake also I have reduced somewhat so that the load on heart and kidney does not go up. In the morning on take Acitrom 2md & 3mg on alternative days. I would like to emphasise that since cardiac attacks take place generally in the morning hours, so, I take acitrom at night. I also take Dytor 10 mg in the morning and 10mg after about 6 hours - after lunch. I visit my doctors in aiims-delhi regularly for follow up. They are wonderful people in the Geriatric Department. God bless them.
I take a nap after breakfast, unless I have to go out on some social commitment. And, one afternoon nap for about 1.1/2 hours. These are very helpful to my refreshed dispensation. My average sitting on computer per day is six hours - for my mental exercise. more
