Medical Diagnosis
Angina Pectoris, Unstable; Diabetes mellitus type 2 – poorly controlled; Obesity; HPN 2; Hypertensive Cardiovascular Disease(HCVD); Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH); Anxiety Disorder 
Angina Pectoris, Unstable
- Unstable angina occurs when the narrowing becomes so severe that not enough blood gets through to keepthe heart functioning normally, even at rest. The atherosclerotic plaque may rupture in unstable angina, allowing blood clots to precipitate andfurther decrease the lumen of the coronary vessel. This explains why an unstable angina appears to be independent of activity. Sometimes theartery can become almost completely blocked. It may occur unpredictably at rest which may be a serious indicator of an impending heart attack.
Diabetes Mellitus type II
- occurs when the pancreas produces insufficient amounts of the hormone insulin and/or the body’s tissuesbecome resistant to normal or even high levels of insulin.
Hypertensive Cardiovascular Disease (HCVD)
- also known as hypertensive heart disease occurs due to the complication of hypertensionor high blood pressure. In this condition the workload of the heart is increased manifold and with time this causes the heart muscles to thicken. Theheart continues pumping blood against this increased pressure and over a period of time the left ventricle of the heart enlarges and this in turncauses the blood pumped by heart to reduce.
Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH)
- Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is the thickening of the myocardium (muscle) of the left ventricle of the heart caused by increased afterload and hypertension.
Hypertension II
- Hypertension is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure is elevated.
- is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health,leading to reduced life expectancy. Body mass index (BMI), which compares weight and height, is used to define a person as overweight (pre-obese) when their BMI is between 25 kg/m2 and 30 kg/m2 and obese when it is greater than 30 kg/m2.
Anxiety Disorder –
The anxiety disorders are a group of mental disturbances characterized by anxiety as a central or core symptom.Anxiety is associated with a wide range of physical illnesses, medication side effects, and other psychiatric disorders.
