From 4 years I been an smoker till now sandenlly I feel so pain heart side. How could be it quit it smoking habit.

From 4 years I been an smoker till now sandenlly I feel so pain heart side. How could be it quit it smoking habit.
Stop smoking asap, as it is pollution levels in the environment are high and all of us in delhi/mumbai are inhaling 8-10 cigarettes a day ruining our lungs and hearts, low levels of oxygen in circulating blood can trigger a heart attack, you should quit smoking through will power for your sake and for sake of your loved ones. You have pain on the heart side, remember all pains are not due to heart, if there are no other symptoms, try a painkiller like meftal, if it is a muscular pain, it will give you relief, but heart pain is sharp shooting and does not get corrected by painkillers. Do give a feedback.

It is possible that those stents have been blocked. 10 years is a long time. I am sure he has undergone a repeat angiography.

Treatment for kidney stone depends on where the stone is, its size and whether it is causing obstruction. So all this is required before commenting further. For foot pain see a physiotherapist.

Can I know that what is sugar blood pressure and heart attack I can understand this matters please help.
Blood has sugar in it to give us energy to live, if it exceeds certain levels, it is diabetes due to type 1 or type 2. Blood pressure is pressure with which blood runs in blood vessels, if it runs too fast because there are obstructions in vessels or there is a kind of kidney disease present, pressure becomes high and it is called high bp, heart attack is when blood supply to heart muscle is affected due to blockages in its blood vessels, heart tissue gets damaged and it is called heart attack.

What Causes High Blood Pressure? 4. What Health Problems Are Associated With High Blood Pressure? And what are the side effects?

What Causes High Blood Pressure? 4. What Health Problems Are Associated With High Blood Pressure? And what are the si...
There are two types of high blood pressure. 1. Primary (essential) hypertension--For most adults, there's no identifiable cause of high blood pressure. This type of high blood pressure, called primary (essential) hypertension, tends to develop gradually over many years. 2. Secondary hypertension--Some people have high blood pressure caused by an underlying condition. This type of high blood pressure, called secondary hypertension, tends to appear suddenly and cause higher blood pressure than does primary hypertension. Various conditions and medications can lead to secondary hypertension, including: •Obstructive sleep apnea- •Kidney problems •Adrenal gland tumors •Thyroid problems- •Certain defects in blood vessels you're born with (congenital) •Certain medications, such as birth control pills, cold remedies, decongestants, over-the-counter pain relievers and some prescription drugs- •Illegal drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines •Alcohol abuse or chronic alcohol use High blood pressure has many risk factors, including: 1. Age. The risk of high blood pressure increases as you age. Through early middle age, or about age 45, high blood pressure is more common in men. Women are more likely to develop high blood pressure after age 65. 2. Race. High blood pressure is particularly common among blacks, often developing at an earlier age than it does in whites. Serious complications, such as stroke, heart attack and kidney failure, also are more common in blacks. 3. Family history. High blood pressure tends to run in families.- 4. Being overweight or obese. The more you weigh the more blood you need to supply oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. As the volume of blood circulated through your blood vessels increases, so does the pressure on your artery walls. 5. Not being physically active. People who are inactive tend to have higher heart rates. The higher your heart rate, the harder your heart must work with each contraction and the stronger the force on your arteries. Lack of physical activity also increases the risk of being overweight. 6. Using tobacco. Not only does smoking or chewing tobacco immediately raise your blood pressure temporarily, but the chemicals in tobacco can damage the lining of your artery walls. This can cause your arteries to narrow, increasing your blood pressure. Secondhand smoke also can increase your blood pressure. 7. Too much salt (sodium) in your diet. Too much sodium in your diet can cause your body to retain fluid, which increases blood pressure. 8. Too little potassium in your diet. Potassium helps balance the amount of sodium in your cells. If you don't get enough potassium in your diet or retain enough potassium, you may accumulate too much sodium in your blood. 9. Too little vitamin D in your diet. It's uncertain if having too little vitamin D in your diet can lead to high blood pressure. Vitamin D may affect an enzyme produced by your kidneys that affects your blood pressure. 10. Drinking too much alcohol. Over time, heavy drinking can damage your heart. Having more than two drinks a day for men and more than one drink a day for women may affect your blood pressure. If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women of all ages and men older than age 65, and up to two drinks a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 360 ML of beer, 100 ML of wine or 45 ML of 80-proof liquor.- 11. Stress. High levels of stress can lead to a temporary increase in blood pressure. If you try to relax by eating more, using tobacco or drinking alcohol, you may only increase problems with high blood pressure. 12. Certain chronic conditions. Certain chronic conditions also may increase your risk of high blood pressure, such as kidney disease, diabetes and sleep apnea. Sometimes pregnancy contributes to high blood pressure, as well. Although high blood pressure is most common in adults, children may be at risk, too. For some children, high blood pressure is caused by problems with the kidneys or heart. But for a growing number of kids, poor lifestyle habits, such as an unhealthy diet, obesity and lack of exercise, contribute to high blood pressure.- COMPLICATIONS The excessive pressure on your artery walls caused by high blood pressure can damage your blood vessels, as well as organs in your body. The higher your blood pressure and the longer it goes uncontrolled, the greater the damage. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to: 1. Heart attack or stroke. High blood pressure can cause hardening and thickening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), which can lead to a heart attack, stroke or other complications. 2. Aneurysm. Increased blood pressure can cause your blood vessels to weaken and bulge, forming an aneurysm. If an aneurysm ruptures, it can be life-threatening. 3. Heart failure. To pump blood against the higher pressure in your vessels, your heart muscle thickens. Eventually, the thickened muscle may have a hard time pumping enough blood to meet your body's needs, which can lead to heart failure. 4. Weakened and narrowed blood vessels in your kidneys. This can prevent these organs from functioning normally. 5. Thickened, narrowed or torn blood vessels in the eyes. This can result in vision loss. 6. Metabolic syndrome. This syndrome is a cluster of disorders of your body's metabolism, including increased waist circumference; high triglycerides; low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the" good" cholesterol; high blood pressure; and high insulin levels. These conditions make you more likely to develop diabetes, heart disease and stroke. 7. Trouble with memory or understanding. Uncontrolled high blood pressure may also affect your ability to think, remember and learn. Trouble with memory or understanding concepts is more common in people with high blood pressure.

Hello. Getting High Blood pressure at such an early age is sad. But, before reaching to the conclusion that you have High BP, it needs to be properly confirmed that your BP remains high all the time. Because, many times, BP rises only temporarily while you are checking your BP at a clinic, due to anxiety or tension. This is very popularly known as White Coat Hypertension. And this is a very non-harmful thing. Maybe you are having only White Coat Hypertension and not real High BP disease. Take care.

Hi, thank you for your query. Foods do not contain hdl or ldl. It's the former in which the fats are converted in the body. Cow's milk has saturated fats, but it's short chain and medium chained fatty acids that are easy to digest and are not converted to unhealthy fats in the body. Also omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids are in the right proportion. This makes cow's milk a good option even though it has saturated fats, of course as long as it's not adulterated.

As per current recommendations you should start cholesterol reducing medication. But I would advise you to try strict diet and regular exercise measures at least for 6 months before starting medicine.

Dear Prabhu the human body like every living creature is a dynamic entity. For the most healthy person also. All parameters will change on different times of a day or on different days. It is natural. The earlier bp reading was taken when he was stressed. The next when his is calm. So it is ok. Ideally, every doctor will take 3 readings in a day ir few days to plan average normal for that person. Eat right. Destress. Rest and exercise adequately and stay positive. Regards.
