You needed to check your heart out and you did so. Ok so you are alright. Now put it out of your mind and enjoy life. Don' t induce a heart attack by constantly thinking about it. The thought will be fixed in your subconscious and then you will really be in trouble. If, inspite of this you want a heart muscle tonic, let me know.

BP diet should be as follows: Reduce white salt, shift to rock salt, that too, in the most minimum dosages. Increase your intake of fresh green leafy vegetables and totally stop consuming anything in packaged foods like chips, lays, biscuits, tinned foods foods in tetra-packs etc. Eat on time, slowly and drink water in proper volume (roughly 2 to 3 liters per day is considered good). Alcohol, tobacco in any form, high stress lack of adequate rest, stress can trigger high BP. The first warning signs of increase in B is head ache feeling depressed, swelling and fatigue. 3 to 5 BP tests will confirm if it is transient high BP or set high BP. Depending on age and other conditions, medication will be recommended.

100 to 110 whether it is systolic or diastolic, if systolic then it is OK if diastolic also no need to bother as this is not too high. Ask him to avoid salt and spicy foods. Take some anti-hypertensive medication if necessary and ask him to be active and stress free.

If you have been detected to have high bp, even extra pich of daily intake of salt is going to cause null and void effect of your medicine taken for control.
But if your bp is low the same helps you instantly.

Knowing Coronary Artery Disease - Symptoms and Causes

Coronary Artery Disease - Symptoms and Causes

Coronary artery disease is the disease in which the major blood vessels (coronary arteries) that supply blood, nutrients and oxygen to your heart get damaged or disease stricken. It is mostly caused due to the coronary artery getting plagued or inflamed. The consequent reduction in blood flow to the heart causes the various symptoms of coronary artery disease like angina (chest pain), short breath etc.

Symptoms:

Here is a list of a few symptoms that help in identification of the coronary artery disease.

1. Angina - Pressure or tightness may be felt in or near the area of the chest that results in pain. It is mostly felt in the middle or left side of the chest.

2. Shortness of breath - Another symptom of coronary artery disease is short breath, fatigue and a feeling of exertion.

3. Heart attack - Complete blockage of the coronary artery results in a heart attack that is a prominent symptom of coronary artery disease. A person may feel heavy pressure in the chest, pain in the shoulder or arm, sweating etc. prior to getting a heart attack.

Causes:

Coronary artery disease occurs when damage or injury is done to the inner layer of the coronary artery. This damage causes plaque, which are deposits made of fat, cholesterol and other cellular waste materials to accumulate near the damaged area of the artery. This process is known as atherosclerosis.

The various causes that result in coronary artery damage are listed below.

- Smoking
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes
- High cholesterol
- Obesity
- High stress
- Physical inactivity

yes sir it is bad for your heart. High cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, a cause of heart attacks, and reducing blood lipid levels lowers the cardiovascular risk.4 High levels of LDL lead to a build-up of cholesterol in the arteries, whereas HDL carries cholesterol to the liver for removal from the body.2 A build-up of cholesterol is part of the process that narrows arteries, called atherosclerosis, in which plaques form and cause restriction of blood flow.2 High cholesterol levels are a result of modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors. Two major risk factors, diet and exercise, are highly modifiable, meaning that something can be done to change these risk factors and reduce the likelihood of having high cholesterol.2 Limiting intake of fat in the diet helps manage cholesterol levels. In particular, it is helpful to limit foods that contain:2 Food sources of cholesterol Meat, cheese and egg yolks are sources of cholesterol. Cholesterol (from animal foods, such as egg yolks, meat and cheese) Saturated fat (found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods) Trans fat (found in some fried and processed foods). Being overweight or obese can also lead to higher blood LDL levels, with regular exercise helpful in managing this risk factor.2 The primary causes of high cholesterol are genetic - very high LDL levels are found in the inherited condition familial hypercholesterolemia.5 Abnormal cholesterol levels may also be secondary to the following:5,6 Diabetes Liver or kidney disease Polycystic ovary syndrome Pregnancy and other conditions that increase levels of female hormones Underactive thyroid gland. Drugs that increase LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol (progestins, anabolic steroids and corticosteroids).
