Me and wifey dear after her first half marathon in Jan 2013!

When your heart goes Dhak! Dhak! due to the smile of your sweetheart, that’s normal. But that should not happen when you are just relaxing or doing your daily chores. People with heart beat problems suffer from palpitations, giddiness and also fainting spells. That’s when my speciality kicks in! Its a nice branch of cardiology which is growing by leaps and bounds. There is so much to learn and keep myself updated. That’s equally true for all branches of medicine, particularly in Cardiology.

The field of Cardiology boasts of maximum trials and innovations being conducted. Yet, inspite of all these advances, heart disease remain the no. 1 killer all over the world and also in India. The people suffering from heart illnesses is increasing day by day. My intention of writing this bog is provide people at  large  health related information in particular to preventing and treating heart disease. I hope my endeavour bears fruits in the form of informed choices being made by our patients.

So, enjoy going through my blog. Interact if you have queries and suggestions.

I grew up in the lovely city of Mumbai and did my medical education from Mumbai University. I specialized in Cardiac Electrophysiology from Taipei and Australia. I  am currently practicing in P.D. Hinduja Hospital in Mumbai.

I have a beautiful wife who is also a Physician and 2 lovely kids. When I am not working in the hospital, I like to spend time with my family.

I love jogging and cycling. Travelling and playing the guitar is what I do in my pastime.

so, READ, INTERACT, SUGGEST and GET HEALTHY!

Chao!

Ameya

    Dr…love your web site..I am a 54 yr old male who had a coated 4mm stent in my LAD 4 yrs ago. Never had a heart attack..Am on Simvastatin now and my numbers are HDL=122.LDL=90.Tryg.=57….I exercise everyday, run 5 miles or bike 25 miles.. and am of perfect and maybe a little underweight…My cardio Dr is from India also and he seems ok with my LDL…would love to know YOUR thoughts on my numbers…does my high HDL negate the high LDL ?
    Thank you

      Dear Sir,

      your reports sound fantastic. I have never seen such high HDL in patients. Your LDL is well controlled and within the required range. I would advise to repeat the blood test just to reconfirm your HDL levels. If they are high, you are lucky as HDL is a protective cholesterol and it does to some extent negate LDL by reducing cardiac risk. HDL has no chemical effect on LDL but it does provide effect on stabilising atherosclerotic plaques which cause heart attacks.

      Thanks

    Thank you…I have my blood tested every 6 months and my HDL has been over 120 for a couple years now…so even though I have a 4mm stent in my LAD you think my LDL is ok
