How to control bad colestrol? tips.
High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time.

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

I am a long term patient suffering from hypertension. I am on 8 mg of atacand and 30 mg of nifedipine. Recently I found that I have occurrents of palpitation, and was referred to TTSH. I was asked to wear a monitoring device for a day. Thereafter I was told that nothing significant was found. As my own monitoring of my BP showed that at the end of each day, my BP was above 150/90, my doctor increased the Nifedipine dosage to 60 mg. (30 mg in the morning and 30 mg in the evening) However, my BP readings drop to just above 100/60. I feel dizzy at times. So I revert back to 8 mg atacand and 30 mg nifedipine. Am I doing the right thing.

Dear madam, treatment of lifestyle diseases like high bp, diabetes, high cholesterol etc needs long term commitment in terms of lifestyle modification along with drug therapy. You need to be patient with the outcome. Changing doctors does not help, since treatment is same. If bp is not contolled your doctor can increase the dose or add another. But that has to be done gradually but systematically. So just relax and follow your doctors advice.

Since he has already suffered from pancreatitis and half of the pancreas is already removed, he should stop taking alcohol totally other wise he will have serious problem. Let him attend alcoholic anonymous programme near to your locality, where they conduct various counselling sessions with a group of alcoholic to get rid of alcohol. Many people have benefited by attending the programme. Consult physician for further advice.

What is low blood pressure (hypotension)?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
The heart pumps a constant supply of blood around the body through arteries, veins and capillaries. Blood pressure is a measure of the force of the blood on the walls of the arteries as the blood flows through them. It's measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) and recorded as two measurements: systolic pressure�? the pressure when your heart beats and squeezes blood into your arteries diastolic pressure�? the pressure when your heart rests between beats� For example, if your systolic blood pressure is 120mmHg and your diastolic blood pressure is 80mmHg, your blood pressure is 120 over 80, which is commonly written as 120/80. Normal blood pressure is between 90/60 and 140/90.�If you have a reading of 140/90 or more, you have�high blood pressure (hypertension). This puts you at greater risk of developing serious health conditions, such�as � heart attack �or stroke . People with a blood pressure reading under 90/60 are usually regarded as having low blood pressure.

My heart rate is consistently above 100 at rest. On lying down its 103 and on sitting its 112. I also feel dizzy and weak. Is it a cause for concern?

M.P.H, B.H.M.S
Homeopath,
Many factors influence resting heart rate. Genes play a role. Aging tends to speed it up. Regular exercise tends to slow it down. Stress, medications, and medical conditions also influence the heart rate. You can slow your resting heart rate by doing things that are also well known to help maintain a healthy heart: exercise more. Reduce stress. Avoid tobacco products. Lose weight. Still if your hear rate is more or increasing visit your doctor. Use manual method to find heart rate.
