83 yrs f; stable diastolic hf; rate controlled a-fib. Meds: cardizem, coumadin, (warfarin) lasix, inderal, spiriva (mild copd). Would a cardioselective betablocker be better than inderal ?

83 yrs f; stable diastolic hf; rate controlled a-fib.  Meds: cardizem, coumadin, (warfarin) lasix, inderal, spiriva (mild copd).  Would a cardioselective betablocker be better than inderal ?

Theoretically yes: In patients with COPD or asthma , cardioselective beta blockers like atenolol are felt to be superior to Inderal (propranolol) which also has possible harmful effects on the bronchial tree and could produce wheezing(bronchospasm). This may be a concern in someone like you who has copd. Your physician is best to advise you, however especially if you're doing well on inderal (propranolol). ...Read more

On 80mg Lipitor (atorvastatin) 25mg coreg 25mg twice daily. Lisinopril 40mg, normal angiogram, normal echo, mvp asside. Question is, why such high med dosages?

Meds : Lipitor (atorvastatin) dose seems high usually reserved for patients with known coronary diseases. I am guessing the other meds are for blood pressure so the dose will depend on BP control. ...Read more

Runner w/ new asthma dx. Meds not helping. Had echo = mod mitral valve regurg. Much dyspnea, interrupting workouts. Is mod MVR significant?

Not asthma?: If your breathing problem comes on less than 5 minutes after initiating exercise, it is likely not from asthma and thus the lack of response to bronchodilator. Consult your allergist or ENT doctor with special interest on vocal cord dysfunction. I presume your cardiac function is otherwise adequate. ...Read more

Safe: High blood pressure is very dangerous in pregnancy leading to poor fetal growth, placenta abruption and even death. Controlling high blood pressure is extremely important. Labetolol and methyl dopa are the 2 most common blood pressure meds for pregnant women. Labetolol works well. It can cause issues with amniotic fluid levels so ultrasounds are usually done to monitor. ...Read more

Normal: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, Other than the fasting blood sugar being very slightly high, rest of the parameters are okay. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Hypertension: Hypertension is caused by age related stiffening of the vascular system, worsened by excess weight, excess sodium intake, lack of exercise, use of tobacco or illicit drugs. It may be related to kidney or hormone related issues which can be evaluated if initial treatment with life-style changes and medications do not control the bp, further evaluation may be needed. ...Read more

Likely: We have a saying in laboratory medicine, "treat the patient, not the numbers." you may be a little dry from your diuretic or simply not having drunk water before the exam. Generally, there's little reason to focus on your lab numbers; look at how your medication is affecting you generally, and how you feel. ...Read more
