25 weeks pregnant. calcium deposit on heart with extra fluid. Extra fluid in the back of the brain. Nephew has cardiomyopathy. Is something def. wrong

Need an MFM: The calcium deposit can be found in lots of normal pregnancies, it just is a clue that will tell your sonographer to pay extra attention. Extra fluid on the brain can be more worrisome and warrants consultation with a specialist called a perinatologist or MFM. ...Read more

Will atherosclerosis of the femoral artery affect heart beat and ekg?

Will atherosclerosis of the femoral artery affect heart beat and  ekg?

No: Ekgs measure the electrical activity of the heart. Palpitations ( irregular heartbeats) are also a function of the electrical activity in the heart. Neither of these will be affected by having atherosclerosis in the femoral artery of the leg. ...Read more

Does Fosamax (alendronate) contribute to calcification of heart arteries?

Does Fosamax (alendronate) contribute to calcification of heart arteries?

Fosamax (alendronate) & hearts: Fosamax does not contribute to calcium deposits in the coronary arteries. Fosamax works only on bone metabolism to inhibit the breakdown of bone when exercise, vitamin d and calcium intake are inadquate. ...Read more

Does gout/uric acid crystals make coronary artery blockages worse in my heart?

Does gout/uric acid crystals make coronary artery blockages worse in my heart?

No: Uric acid is not a cause of coronary artery disease. Hypertension is a very common condition and if it coexists with gout, the hypertension can lead to worsening coronary artery disease. However, the gout does not affect the coronary arteries. ...Read more

My sonography shows calcium deposit in the right lobe of liver along with generalised fatty infilteration.Is calcium deposit harmful.

My sonography shows calcium deposit in the right lobe of liver along with generalised fatty infilteration.Is calcium deposit harmful.

What's the context?: Was the calcium deposition in liver vasculature, in a cyst, a tumor, in granulomas? Was it generalized or localized (e.g. At a site of trauma, surgery, biopsy)? Was the sonogram performed for symptoms or follow-up of underlying liver or systemic disease? Lots to consider before rendering an educated guess. ...Read more

35 male, 3 EKG's Echo stress and cholestrol fine. Chest pain in left at a single point, heart burn that goes away with tums (calcium carbonate). Heart prob? Out of shape?

35 male, 3 EKG's Echo stress and cholestrol fine. Chest pain in left at a single point, heart burn that goes away with tums (calcium carbonate). Heart prob? Out of shape?

Heart not likely: Chest point tenderness is more likely to be musculoskeletal than heart related and the work-up seems to be reassuring in that regard. You do seem to have symptoms that suggest reflux disease. If overweight, losing weight should help in all departments. ...Read more

100/60 heart beat 76bmp age 66 on linsiprol & bisoporol?

Blood pressure: Are you having any symptoms such as lightheadedness, chest pain, or shortness of breath? Your blood pressure and pulse are fine if you have no symptoms. Your blood pressure could be on the low side if you normally run higher - If you are having symptoms, you need to get in to see your physician for evaluation. Take care. ...Read more

Ct scan showed Small vessel Ischemia. Cardioglogist quadruppled beta blocker after EKG. How does the ischemia effect my Kidney disease(stage 4)?

Ct scan showed Small vessel Ischemia. Cardioglogist quadruppled beta blocker after EKG. How does the ischemia  effect my Kidney disease(stage 4)?

Vessels in both: Without an actual exam, I can't give specific medical advice on your particular health. Same things affect vessels EVERYWHERE. So, while strokes, or heart attacks don't hit the kidney. The same bad vessels are in all organs. Hi BP, diabetes, and cholesterol all clog vessels everywhere and affect all the organs (heart, brain, kidney). Treatable. Or such bad heart disease, no blood gets to kidney. ...Read more

No symptoms. Healthy. Heart disease in family. Had CT heart scan to calc my calcium score of 83. Thoracic aorta ascending aorta was 3.8 cm, atherosclerosis . What does that mean? Age 50, 162lbs, BP 130/80, male, 6-1 height. No meds. Aspirin daily

Coronary calcium: Normal coronary arteries do not contain calcium. Therefore your mild to moderate score could indicate coronary artery blockage of uncertain degree. In view of your family history , I recommend that you undergo a maximal treadmill stress test (echo or nuclear)for further screening for significant coronary artery blockage and consideration for intensive statin therapy and Cardiology consultation. ...Read more

Does a normal CT Calcium Score Scan eliminate possibility of Atherosclerosis plaque build up in arteries?

Does a normal CT Calcium Score Scan eliminate possibility of Atherosclerosis plaque build up in arteries?

Not entirely: Usually, a calcium score >100 indicates that calcium deposits are present & that coronary heart disease/obstruction is likely present. Scores between 0 & 100 are considered normal, but this may just indicate a very small amount of calcium that hasn't progressed to disease yet. At your age, follow heart disease prevention--non-smoking, healthy eating/exercise, not calcium score. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Can  the heart pound due to some type of heart disease with normal heart rate?& normal ECG too??

Different people are: more "heart aware" than others. Most people don't feel their heart beating but some are "hyperaware". With normal physiological findings and a normal EKG it is unlikely you need to worry. ...Read more

Is a coronary calcium ct scan a good test to see of there is plaque in the heart arteries? how accurate is it? my cta was inconclusive. heart rate fas

Coronary Calcium: Coronary Calcium analysis is a method to detect calcified cholesterol in the coronary arteries. A score of zero is quite helpful and predictive in the correct age group. The difficulty is that in younger people, there may be noncalcified cholesterol plaques in the arteries which would not be detected on a coronary calcium screening test, so cardiac CTA or invasive angiography would be considered. ...Read more

Can gas have an impact on the heart such as an irregular heart beat or pressure passing surrounding areas of the heart? Male 21 smoker

Nope: The heart is effectively isolated from the pressures of the bowel, though it can, under the right circumstances be subject to the pressures of the lung. Sorry to hear about the gas though. ...Read more
