Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have grade 2 diastolic dysfunction. I am diabetic and hypertensive. I feel discomfort in my chest and have chest pain. Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query. Diastolic dysfunction means the heart can not adequately expand during diastole which can be due to left ventricular hypertrophy. LVH (left ventricular hypertrophy) is due to uncontrolled hypertension. Control your blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Check HbA1c levels and fasting lipid profile to assess the risk of cardiovascular events and adopt lifestyle measures and start medicines. Keep blood pressure less than 130/80 mmHg. I hope this has helped you. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
