use more salt. Experts usually recommend limiting the amount of salt in your diet because sodium can raise blood pressure, sometimes dramatically. ... Drink more water. ... Wear compression stockings. ... Medications. Eat small, low-carb meals. To help prevent blood pressure from dropping sharply after meals, eat small portions several times a day and limit high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Your doctor also may recommend drinking caffeinated coffee or tea with meals to temporarily raise blood pressure.

Hi, When the blood supply is cut off to the cardiac muscles due to blockage in the coronary vessels, heart attack occurs. Please follow these tips to avoid heart attacks: - Work out everyday (yoga or gym) or walk for 1 hour daily. -Avoid excessive intake of sweets, oil fried food, excessive intake of carbohydrates. - Take high fibre diet. - Check your lipid profile once in 6 months and sugar levels once in 3 months. - Undergo stress test (TMT) once in a year - Avoid sedentary life style and be active. - Do not put on weight - Use heart friendly cooking oil like rice bran oil, olive oil, etc - Avoid mental tension and worries.

Dear lybrate user. There are no short cuts. Physical exercise is the key. Quit smoking and alcohol consumption, cut sugar intake, to bring down total cholesterol, triglycerides etc you have to increase good cholesterol. Good cholesterol is available in plums, grapes, purple cabbage, eggplant, and raspberries to your diet. Plus eating more fruits and veggies (in addition to whole grains) will increase your fiber, which has been shown to help control overall cholesterol levels. Take care.

Prevention From Heart Attack

Prevention From Heart Attack


*हृदयाघात तथा गर्म पानी पीना*

यह भोजन के बाद गर्म पानी पीने के बारे में ही नहीं हृदयाघात के बारे में भी एक अच्छा लेख है। चीनी और जापानी अपने भोजन के बाद गर्म चाय पीते हैं, ठंडा पानी नहीं। अब हमें भी उनकी यह आदत अपना लेनी चाहिए। जो लोग भोजन के बाद ठंडा पानी पीना पसन्द करते हैं यह लेख उनके लिए ही है। 

भोजन के साथ कोई ठंडा पेय या पानी पीना बहुत हानिकारक है क्योंकि ठंडा पानी आपके भोजन के तैलीय पदार्थों को जो आपने अभी अभी खाये हैं ठोस रूप में बदल देता है। इससे पाचन बहुत धीमा हो जाता है। जब यह अम्ल के साथ क्रिया करता है तो यह टूट जाता है और जल्दी ही यह ठोस भोजन से भी अधिक तेज़ी से आँतों द्वारा सोख लिया जाता है। यह आँतों में एकत्र हो जाता है। फिर जल्दी ही यह चरबी में बदल जाता है और कैंसर के पैदा होने का कारण बनता है। 

इसलिए सबसे अच्छा यह है कि भोजन के बाद गर्म सूप या गुनगुना पानी पिया जाये। एक गिलास गुनगुना पानी सोने से ठीक पहले अभी पीना चाहिए। इससे खून के थक्के नहीं बनेंगे और आप हृदयाघात से बचे रहेंगे।

I checked my BP twice and it is 90/60. My problem is when I wake up or sometimes I feel like breathless and my brain is not getting proper oxygen. Its not exactly headache it is something else. I also feel fatigue most of the time. And I feel like sleepy.

Low blood pressure can be caused by low blood volume, hormonal changes, widening of blood vessels, medicine side effects, anemia, heart problems or endocrine problems. Management: Meditation, yoga, or other mental-physiological disciplines may reduce hypotensive effects. Taking enough of sleep and rest. Treatment: The treatment for hypotension depends on its cause. Chronic hypotension rarely exists as more than a symptom. Asymptomatic hypotension in healthy people usually does not require treatment. Adding electrolytes to a diet can relieve symptoms of mild hypotension. A morning dose of caffeine can also be effective. In mild cases, where the patient is still responsive, laying the person in dorsal decubitus (lying on the back) position and lifting the legs increases venous return, thus making more blood available to critical organs in the chest and head. Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe’s Angioto and Alfalfa Tonic - both 3 times a day for 1 month. Revert.

I have sugar and high cholesterol levels. so, please give me advise and medicine.?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . for diabetes you can take anti diabetes medicines by doctor.pl. tell us your reports.

To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running 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.

Yes you can eat mango, as mango does help to reduce blood pressure. But you can't expect that mango will reduce it considerably and will bring close to normal. Healthy diet, regular exercise and medicine are the three things you need to manage your high blood pressure.

Cardiovascular Disease & Diabetes - Know Everything About It!!

MBBS, CCEBDM
Diabetologist, Bangalore
Cardiovascular Disease & Diabetes - Know Everything About It!!

Since blood is part of the cardiovascular system, and diabetes is a condition in which the level of glucose in the blood is higher than normal, then is certainly some relationship between the two.

Diabetes and cardiovascular system diseases has been recognized to be closely related to each other due to the so-called insulin resistance syndrome or metabolic syndrome. Some examples of the commonly diagnosed cardiovascular disease are coronary heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and other heart conditions.

Diabetes is considered a major risk factor in cardiovascular diseases. Other factors that contribute to the possibility of acquiring cardiovascular diseases in diabetic patients include hypertension, smoking, and dyslipidemia.

How Diabetes Causes Cardiovascular Problems?

  1. Hypertension: Hypertension in diabetes is considered a major contributor to the increase in mortality from cardiovascular diseases. Diabetic patients, especially those with Type 2, need to always have their blood pressure checked every visit to the doctor. Self-monitoring at home is also a must to maintain and control the rise of blood pressure. The American Diabetes Association recommends a target blood pressure of not more than 130/85 mm Hg to maintain a good level of blood pressure.
  2. Arteriosclerosis and Atherosclerosis: Arteriosclerosis is the stiffening or hardening of the artery walls while Atherosclerosis is the narrowing of the artery because of plaque build-up. Atherosclerosis is a form of hardening of the blood vessels/arteries, caused by fatty deposits and local tissue reaction in the walls of the arteries. Diabetes is a documented high risk factor for the development of both Atherosclerosis & Arteriosclerosis . Heart disease and stroke, arising mainly from the effects of atherosclerosis, account for 65 percent of deaths among diabetics.
  3. Hyperglycemia: Hyperglycemia means high (hyper) glucose (gly) in the blood (emia). Your body needs glucose to properly function. Your cells rely on glucose for energy. Hyperglycemia is a defining characteristic of diabetes, when the blood glucose level is too high because the body isn't properly using or doesn't make the hormone insulin. There is a growing recognition that diabetes belongs to a special category of risk factors because it markedly increases risk of CVD. This increase is partly the result of the pernicious effects of persistent hyperglycemia on the vasculature and partly due to the coexistence of other metabolic risk factors.
  4. Smoking: Smoking has been determined dangerous to our health. Studies show that smoking indeed increase risk of premature death and cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients.
  5. Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial Fibrillation means an irregular and rapid heart rate which can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure and other cardiac issues. Individuals with diabetes are at an increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation. This risk is higher among patients with a longer duration of treated diabetes and poorer glycemic control.

Individuals with insulin resistance or diabetes in combination with one or more of these risk factors are at even greater risk of heart disease or stroke. However, by managing their risk factors, patients with diabetes may avoid or delay the development of heart and blood vessel disease. Your health care provider will do periodic testing to assess whether you have developed any of these risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

My mom has cholesterol and she take medicines daily as directed by the doctor can you please tell me what are the best things for her which she can eat.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Ask her to take good fats from nuts like almonds,walnuts ,egg yolk though in moderation. Too less fats from the food forces the liver to produce cholesterol in the body which many atimes in creases the blood cholesterol. Cholesterol is vital for many of the vital functions of the body

High Blood Pressure Treatment in Ayurveda

High blood pressure is a condition that is characterized by increased pressure on the walls of the artery. This condition occurs when the systolic pressure (contraction of the heart) is greater than 130 and the diastolic pressure (relaxation of the heart) hovers around 90 over a period of time.

If the condition is not treated, then heart muscles and blood vessels come under a lot of strain. It is caused by factors such as:

  1. Excessive consumption of salt
  2. Not consuming vegetables
  3. If you are obese
  4. Over consumption of alcohol
  5. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle

Ayurveda is a holistic method of treatment that focuses on improving your overall wellbeing. It is free from side effects as it is a natural method of treatment. The various Ayurvedic remedies to treat high blood pressure are:

  1. Diet: Include vegetables and fruits in your diet as they provide your body with the necessary nutrients. Make sure that you are not eating excess carbohydrates and fats. Avoid junk foods in your diet, consume natural foods such as whole grains and legumes. Eat foods such as brown rice and whole wheat as they provide steady stream of energy in the body.
  2. Yoga: Make sure to add yoga workouts to your morning routine as they help in keeping your body supple and flexible. It also helps you in relaxing and centering yourself so as to reduce mental stress. Start off with simple postures such as upward dog and the cobra.
  3. Remain Active: If you are the type of person who leads a sedentary lifestyle, then you need to get off the couch. A sedentary lifestyle is known to increases the risk if high blood pressure and diabetes. Follow an exercise regimen to keep your heart healthy. 
  4. Avoid stressful activities:  Avoid situations that take a toll on your mental health as they can create complications if you are suffering from high blood pressure. In your free time, indulge in activities that provide a source of relaxation and peace such as playing or reading a book.
