Avatar n tn Hello, Since you have anhidrosis, excessive exercise can cause heat exhaustion and heat stroke. To prevent this, avoid excessive exercise, exercise in cooler climate, drink plenty of water, wear appropriate clothing and avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol as these liquids are dehydrating. Also get an evaluation done from a physician and check out the possible cause of anhidrosis.

Avatar m tn I'm a 50 year old male with a family history of heart disease and stroke and am trying to prevent it if possible. I exercise daily and maintain a healthy diet. Will this be good enough in the long run? I tend to worry about it too much because of the problems my parents had but I think my numbers are good. BP runs about 115/65 on average and my total cholesterol is about 100, HDL 45. My glucose is about 85 so hopefully this will keep me out of trouble.
Avatar m tn It is pretty much what I have heard from my stroke team and my PCP and what I have learned online...weight, age, diet, beta blockers, etc. The problem remains that, according to my research, each of these affects HDL by only a few points...five to ten percent, not 54%...and except for the fact that I am six months older, none of the above factors has changed. The good news is that my HDL appears to be increasing on its own. Eleven days after my stroke it was back up to 35.

My mother recently had a major stroke and my family has just started the book. We've already come across many passages that describe emotions and reactions our mom is having to a tee. You can see a video of Dr. Taylor talking about her experience and her book here: http://www.****.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, type 2 diabetes is linked with obesity, and exercise would definitely help with the prevention of that type. The hemoglobin A1C measures the average blood sugar level over a 3 month time period. This test is used by diabetics as a tool in keeping their blood glucose readings in control.
Avatar m tn The question of beta-blockers and exercise is very interesting and I'm still not sure what's really going on. I take Sotalol for Afib and am in NSR; I work out regularly. My experience is that my heart rate is definitely suppressed at a given exercise level from what it used to be without the drug. I know this for sure as I had a regular treadmill routine with a known heart rate and when I started taking Sotalol my heart rate dropped dramatically.
Avatar m tn Of course there is a difference in preparation and lowering your risks to help prevent stroke or heart attack. Prevention is always the best approach, as much as possible that is.

542997 tn?1214750350 Hello. I am 29 and i had a hemorrhagic stroke 2 months ago. It was a baby stroke and I have fully recovered except for my vision. I have left side neglect and am currently unable to drive. Unfortunately I did not have health insurance when this occurred, and have not spoken to a neurologist since my hospital release. I was wondering if there were specific things I should be avoiding in my daily life. The cause of the stroke was unknown.
Avatar n tn But have returned to running 3 miles a day 6 days a week and 3 miles on the rower, my aim is to get super fit and try to bump start my bodies ability to heal itself. Doctor said it was fine to exercise whilst the consultantat at hospital said i should take it easy and not run. So not sure what to do. I feel much better after my runs and it really drops my BP and makes me relaxed so that has to be good. No headaches or other symptons and iam feeling better than before teh CAD.

Avatar m tn A healthy cardio improves the ciorculation by preventing clots that can lead to heart attack and/or stroke. More efficient skeletal muscle mass that reduces the heart's workload and less strain on the heart. It also reduces stress that can strain the heart by releasing feel-good hormones called endorphins. Weight training can increase, maintain or slow skeletal muscle mass that is more efficient and less demanding for the heart's output.
1813129 tn?1316650790 I have svt and I was wondering if it is safe to exercise while u may be having a episode.I have recently been trying to get in shape.Its sometimes hard though because before i even start to work out my heart rate is already up.I will start out on the track doin a fast walk and if im lucky maybe beable to jog some.I feel embarraced because I look in shape, Im 5'4 and weigh about 118.But that doesnt mean a person is in good shape just because they look it..
Avatar n tn If I have SVT and am having an episode, is it safe to exercise? I am overweight and have been working with a personal trainer (and have lost 20 pounds). I have a scheduled training session but for the last day or so have been having an episode. Heart rate is not too high (between 110-130) but have some chest pain. Thanks!

Avatar m tn I would say in general terms that loss of peripheral vision be it from glaucoma, stroke, retinal disease like retinitis pigmentosa or other causes is usually not something that can be rehabilitated. There are some new computer programs with vision simulators that try to help patients try to rehabilitate the use of lost peripheral vision mainly from stroke and there has be at least some encouraging, though limited, results with that.
