For the last 5 years I have been taking the medicine for controlling BP. Every after 3-4 months, I use to meet Doctor for check up. My BP is maintained on in the range of 135-140 by 85-90. Initially high BP was detected in the range of 170 by 95, which has come down and was well maintained. But in the last two visits on April 15 and Sept 15, the BP measured and found 150 by 90 and 170 by 95. I found LTK H, Stamloveta M and Ecosprin was the most suitable combination for myself, since during that period BP was found very consistent. Lastly till Sep 4th, LTK 50 and Crevast 10 had been continuing, but today it has been changed to LTK 50, LTK H and RXor 10 since BP found high today. So I feel the urgency for second opinion / advice online. I never smoke, drink, but eat fish daily, and chicken maximum twice in a month and mutton very rare.

Hello everyone, my name is Dr. Hanish Gupta. I’m a specialist in internal medicine and mainly an expert in diabetes and cardio vascular diseases. Today I’m here with you to discuss a very important symptom of Chest pains.
It is a very worrisome symptom for any patient. It is very frustrating for the family members because they believe that every chest pain could be a hall mark of a heart attack. But my friends, this is not the case every single time. Chest pain is a pathogenic symptom of heart attack but all heart attacks do not necessarily come with chest pains and vice versa. It is most importantly found in patients of gastric diseases like Peptic Ulcer disease by which a patient suffering from hyper acidity would also come to his doctor with the same complaint. So if your chest pain is related to food, meals or associated with feelings of vomiting like nausea then definitely this could be related to the gastro-intestinal diseases. Moreover some patients come to us and say that they have a pin point chest pain which can be pointed at any part of the chest specially if they are pressing on that part and fuelling that same act of pain, then perhaps there is a muscular-skeletal chest pain which deals with muscles and the rib cage other than the heart itself.
Having said that, chest pain which is related to the Heart attack is almost always related to breathlessness. Nobody ever had a heart attack without having breathlessness. So this is a very important symptom to be noted in the patient that if he is having breathlessness associated with chest pains then it is a definite symptom which is going towards a ‘red flag’ sign of heart attack. Moreover I’d like to point out here that some of the patients of diabetes can present to us without having chest pain and just presenting to us with breathlessness. This is primarily so that just like there is a feeling of numbness in the limbs of a diabetic patient. Similarly there is a numbness id the muscles and nerves around the rib cage due to which this patient may have a silent heart attack which presents only with breathlessness and chest pain. That is why in patients of diabetes only breathlessness itself is a hall mark of heart attack.
If a person has chest pain which is related specially to activity, example: climbing up the stairs, walking, jogging, swimming or running or any kind of strenuous activity and that is the time when the pain but goes away when the patient is resting. This kind of a chest pain could be related to the ischemic heart diseases or the coronary artery disease that leads to heart attack in future.

Here are the diet tips for healthy heart
Hi, I am Priyanka Shokeen. I am working as a dietician in Columbia Asia Hospital. Today I will give you some tips about Heart healthy diet. Although you know that eating certain foods can increase your heart illness risk, it’s tough to change your eating habit.
Here are the heart healthy diet tips for you-
Control your portion size. How much you eat is just as important as what you eat. Overloading your plate, taking second and eating until you feel stuck can lead to more calories, fat and cholesterol than what you eat. Eat more of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are rich source of vitamins and minerals and they are very low in calories. Always have seasonal fruits and vegetables as they are comparatively good preservative. Preservatives are high in sodium and potassium and for a heart patient it is not recommended basically. Select whole grain, they are good source of fiber than other nutrients that play a role in regulating blood pressure. Always use whole wheat flour than the refined one which is maida as whole wheat flour contain good amount of fiber than maida. Always use wheat bread, then white bread because wheat grain contains a good amount of fiber than white bread. Always use oat meal, boiled corn instead of biscuits, popcorns and pancakes.
Always use those products which contain a good amount of fiber as those things are better for a cardiac patient. Choose low fat protein like lean meat, fish, poultry, all the dairy products because they contain less amount of saturated fat than the red meat ones because red mat contains a good amount of cholesterol. So always choose a low fat protein sources instead of red meat. Reduce the sodium in your diet as eating a lot of sodium can contribute to high blood pressure, a risk for cardiovascular disease. So always use herbs and spice instead of table salt, canned soup, prepared soup, soya sauce. Use salt substitutes and herbs and spices. Few of the vegetables and fruits are also high in sodium, so always avoid them. Limit unhealthy fat and cholesterol. Limiting how much saturated fat you eat is important to reduce your blood cholesterol and lower the risk of coronary artery disease. A high blood cholesterol level can lead to building up of plaque in your arteries called arthrosclerosis which can increase your heart attack risk and stroke.
