Which septum (IVSd)echo measurement is more accurate: 2D or m-mode? What happens if IVSd 2D measurement is normal, but m-mode is not, is than IVSd normal
Seek advice: Depends on the condition being investigated. So for specifics need to discuss with the doctor who ordered it. In general M mode measures movement and 2D actual thickness. Both can be subject to operator dependent artefact so that's where need information re why done and what looking for. If remains unclear the cardiologist may order a more accurate transoesophageal echo to sort it out. ...Read more

Dears, I had an echo forheart with IVSD 14mm / LVPWD 15mm. Doctor say I have concentricLVH & grade 1 diastolic dysfction. I am 33 yrs, should I worry?
The most common cause for a concentric pattern of LVH is hypertension, so it is important for you to have an excellent level of blood pressure control.
Diastolic dysfunction of that degree means that it takes your heart a few more thousandths of a second to relax between beats. It is quite common in the setting of LVH. Again, blood pressure control is important. For a higher degree or symptomatic diastolic dysfunction, beta-blocker medication is often recommended to slow the heart between beats. ...Read more
What does a higher than normal range ivsd, lvpwd and lvpws means in an heart echocardiogram? What does an fs% lower than normal mean too? Mine at 28%
No advantage: Simvastatin has a host of benefits aside from the pure lowering LDL aspect; ezetrol, while it reduces ldl, does not seem to have the same level of effect on actual coronary artery disease as the statins do. It may be reasonable to use one over the other due to allergy or drug reactions, but most doctors will go with the statin drug. ...Read more

Weight loss program: I would recommend a physician supervised weight loss program to get the maximum weight loss in the shortest time. Patients can lose up to 3-5 lbs/week. This may not be the best way to lose weight, but it maybe what some people need to get healthy and then work on keeping the weight off. This rapid weight loss can cause other issues and so a physician supervised program would be best. ...Read more
Depends on your present weight and bmr. Say for example if you need 2000 cals to maintain your weight (your bmr+clories burnt by daily activity)if you starve you will be minus 2000x7=14000 cals divide by 3500 equals 4
so you will loose 4 lbs of real body weight
