Which kind of food and daily life will be better for controlled blood pressure and better for kidneys also.

Which kind of food and daily life will be better for controlled blood pressure and better for kidneys also.
Hi, as you have kidney infection, I hope that you are already in touch with a nephrologist and that your kidney health is being monitored by him/ her regularly. First and foremost, the kidney infection has to be arrested before any further complications arise. Your high bp is most probably because of the underlying issue with your kidneys and/ or can be attributed to dietary/ lifestyle issues including stress at work/ home. Telma 20, as I understand, helps control blood pressure. However, it would not cure the underlying cause by itself. While you continue being on telma 20 mg medication as already advised by your doc, simultaneously, you will have to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, pickles, tea, coffee, sweets including sweetened carbonated drinks & artificially sweetened juices, oily, spicy, greasy and fatty foods. Ensure that you have a balanced diet along with fresh fruits/ vegetables like watermelon, apple, cranberries, oranges, ripe papaya, cucumber, leafy greens etc which are especially beneficial for people with high bp and also they ameliorate kidney infection. Bananas and jack fruit are best avoided. Raw cheese, yogurt and fresh buttermilk (with no added salt or spices) also help promote kidney health and fight infections. Walnut and fishes provide omega-3s that help reduce inflammation too. Similarly, garlic & amla too help reduce bp. Ensure to streamline your lifestyle as well, with adequate room for exercise, relaxation and de-stressing. Yoga, pranayam & meditation too help relax deeply and de-stress. Ensure that you get at least 8 hours of restful sleep daily. See how you can streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps.

Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes.

By birth uric acid can not be higher than normal. You must get treatment of both high uric acid as well as cholesterol. At the same time you get treatment for liver because liver dysfunction may cause rise of these elements. You also take care of your meal. For cholesterol avoid fry, fatty & fast foods. For uric acid preferably be vegetarian, avoid protein diet also leguminus foods like dal products.

Lybrate-user, you haven't mentioned your height and weight. Exercise should always be gradual and can be increased in pace and time with practice. Feeling weak during a run can indicate few health issues. Weight loss can come with proper diet and exercise. Self medication is not good. So you need to visit a doctor to start with revital.

Hello Doctor, I was diagnosed high b. P of 150/96. I am taking hypertension medicines (doctor's advise) for past 8 months (metpure xl 50 for first 3 months and metpure xl 25 for last 5 months). My bp at this moment stands normal at 122/80. I have not any past record of heart disease or anything. Is it safe to take these medicines at this age? And how long should I continue? Kindly advice.

Hi. It is good that your bp is now normal. For anybody who has raised bp at a lesser age, thorough investigations have to done to look for cause of raised bp and then medicines are to be started as per the reports. So hope you had also underwent such investigations. There are other group of bp medicines, which are more suitable in your age group rather than metpure. So, you should ask your doctor regarding its bad effects (like weakness, erection problems, etc) and discuss and decide weather a change in medicine is required or not. Take care.

Dr, please advise how to improve good cholesterol level ?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Some time variations occurs due to overconscientious self measurement. If not change your diet and reduce weight upto 70kg by reducing night food quantity. Avoid excessive salt, pickles, day sleep etc. Randomly meet doctor for assessment when ever in a state of joy. If bp is always more than 150/90 then start simple herbal medicine like tab serpina (himalaya) 1/2 at night and monitor bp after 10days.
