MBBS
General Physician,
TOTAL CHOLESTEROL :173, HDL CHOLESTEROL - DIRECT: 31,TRIGLYCERIDES: VLDL CHOLESTEROL. What does it indicate?
Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As" per your clinical history is concerned you are slightly overweight and HDL chol should be more than 40 so discuss with your dietitian to make a plan for it and do regular exercise. Regarding prescription medications you can discuss with your Doctor about - a) ALLSLIM-120 MG after every meal b) ABITOR-F-once a day Do follow few lifestyle modifications like this - 1) Do exercise regularly. You need to get 300 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week to prevent weight gain. Moderately intense physical activities include fast walking and swimming. 2) Do follow a healthy eating plan. Focus on low-calorie, nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid saturated fat and limit sweets and alcohol. Eat three regular meals a day with limited snacking. 3) Monitor your weight regularly. Monitoring your weight can tell you whether your efforts are working and can help you detect small weight gains before they become big problems. Hope that helps.

Ways To Treat Hypertension!

Ways To Treat Hypertension!

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure (HBP) is a long-term or chronic health condition where the pressure of the flow of blood is always high in the arteries. High blood pressure can develop over many years and affects everyone at some point in life but if not treated for a very long time, it can escalate the risks of a number of cardiovascular problems and chronic kidney disorders.

Types

1. Primary Hypertension - High blood pressure caused by genetic, prenatal or other natural causes like aging (people over 60 develop HBP) is known as primary hypertension.

2. Secondary Hypertension - Secondary hypertension is that which is caused due to specific conditions, like kidney disorders, lung disorders etc.

Causes

Blood pressure depends on the amount of blood pumped by the heart and the radius of the blood vessels. The delicate balance can get disturbed due to a number of factors.

Primary hypertension may be caused by genetic factors. There are 35 identified genetic loci related to blood pressure. Mutations in these can cause chronic HBP. Other factors like maternal smoking, deficiency of vitamin D, deficiency of calcium, insufficient breast milk consumption also increase the risk of HBP.

Secondary hypertension is caused by a variety of conditions like hypothyroidism, hypothyroidism, nephritis, asthma, sleep apnea, depression, pregnancy etc. Overconsumption of caffeine, alcohol, sodium and illegal drugs may also be responsible for high blood pressure.

Symptoms

Hypertension may not show any warning symptoms for several years while it continues to develop. A few tell-tale signs are frequent throbbing headaches, shortness of breath, nosebleeds, excessive sweating but these only occur when there is an extremely serious medical complication.

Treatment and Prevention

Hypertension is a common condition, especially after the age of 40. Medication may help control severely high blood pressure to an extent but certain lifestyle changes go a long way in both preventing and treating the disorder. Some of them are:

  1. Taking regular blood pressure readings after the age of 25. A normal blood pressure is not more than 120/80 mm Hg
  2. Obesity causes hypertension. A normal Body Mass Index of <  23 kg /sq. m. is to be maintained
  3. The daily diet should include at least 4 to 6 portions of fruits and vegetables
  4. Salt intake is to be limited
  5. Drinking and smoking are to be minimized
  6. Stress and burnout should be avoided

Apart from the pointers mentioned above it is also important that you must not stop taking your medications on your own even if the blood pressure is normal, and take calcium and magnesium supplements along with it. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

It's an issue generally confronted by hypertensives but is manageable. You need'vrushya' herbal combos (capable of increasing semen quality and qty.). Then'stambhak' herbs which hold ejaculation for longer periods. But it is gradual and effective. No need to alter medicine right now. Pl note that advertised items should be avoided. Also mettallic bhasmas should be avoidwd at all.. Have patience. If everything is well'vrushya' and stambhak medicines take seven weeks to nourish all the saptadhatus including'veerya' which is required to get perfect sex power.

Maybe the dose of antihypertensives needs to be increased or a different class of drugs used or added. The high uric acid levels can also be controlled with either Allopurinol, at doses which are adequate, or with newer drugs which are more effective and safer.

Your bp is wihin normal limit. Don't worry. 2. However try to reduce your weight, if over weight by doing regular exercise. 3. Control your diet, avoid oily/spicy/fried/ junk food. 4. Restrict salt intake. Drink plenty of water 5. Monitor your bp regularly.
