Hi doctor,

My father had an angioplasty before two months. He is fine now. But, he is getting restless in eating by avoiding most of the food. Please instruct me the food items which my father can eat.



Welcome to

Thank you for the query. Your father can eat all fruits, dry fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products including milk without cream, one whole egg or two egg whites per day, fish, chicken, salad, pulses, lentils, and legumes. Limit red meat and salt to minimum. Spices can be taken to add flavor to food if low salt diet tastes unpalatable. Avoid processed foods, canned foods, sweets, and soft drinks even if not diabetic. Eat fish at least twice per week. If he has diabetes, then keep fasting sugar below 130 mg/dL, and random sugar below 200 mg/dL. Avoid sedentary behavior, do regular aerobic exercise, take all medicines, and follow-up your cardiologist regularly to adjust the dosage of drugs.
