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.

Hello dear High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

Superfoods to lower cholesterol
Superfoods to lower cholesterol - oatmeal: having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast daily is another easy way to lower your high cholesterol level. The high soluble fiber content in oatmeal helps lower LDL. It reduces the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Fiber also fills you up quickly and helps you avoid mindless eating.

Dear doctor To lower the BP we have to reduce salt or sodium. Is there anything substitute for sodium. Is there any harm if food is taken without salt Is salt or sodium is necessary to our body. Which medicine is there for BP other than BP Tablets.

Hello, there is no substitute for sodium. You can start salt with low sodium content i. E. Lona salt. Sodium is necessary for the body. Less of serum sodium causes disturbances in the brain's function. Bpcan even be controlled with regular exercise.

Hello, Blood pressure refers to the force exerted on artery walls by the blood flowing through them. The narrower and stiffer your arteries become, the higher your blood pressure goes. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80. BP higher than 130/90 is called Hypertension. You can have high blood pressure for months to years without any symptoms, but the damage caused by hypertension can eventually lead to severe health problems. The health problems from high blood pressure are the result of two major health stages. First, the blood vessels in your body narrow and stiffen. Second, and as a result of this, there is a decreased blood flow to different organs and body parts such as the heart, the brain, the kidneys, the eyes, and the nerves. This can lead to severe complications if left unchecked. 1)Monitor your blood pressure regularly. 2)Exercise: Exercise for at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity at least 5 days per week 3)Manage stress through meditation and yoga or some hobby. 4)Cut down on alcohol or smoking. 5)Limit your caffeine intake. Caffeine causes an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. Drink no more than 2 cups tea per day. 6)DASH Diet: This is a medically designed and studied diet plan focusing on reducing blood pressure. The diet is high in vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, and lean proteins. It is also low in sodium, added-sugars, and fats. 7)Restrict your Salt intake to not more than WHO recommended dose of 1500 mg per day. 8)Eat Nuts: Eat foods such as almonds, flax seeds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, lentils, peas, and kidney beans. 9)Most important take your medicines on time.

The medicine you have mentioned is generally prescribed for seizures and fits. It is likely to make her drowsy and uncomfortable as you have mentioned. Please go back to the doctor who has prescribed this medicine and ask why it was given; Please send her blood reports, BP reading for 3 times taken in 1 week (for proper BP evaluation) for proper guidance can be given for her treatment. Also, send information on what she does, eats, works etc so her lifestyle can be modified to her her regain better health.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the blood sugar levels mentioned by you look quite ok. It also important to look at hba1c%, if that is<7%, then one can say diabetes is in good control. If you maintai sugar levels at the present level then it will in preventing or postponing the long term complications of diabetes. You have also not mentioned about the drugs being taken and their dosage. As regards the hypertension, it is not in control, which is clear with the readings which you have mentioned. To give any suggestion I need to know your current treatment with dosage. Another important aspect is that you have a bmi of 27.57 kg/m2, which means over weight, it also is a major contributor for high bp and sugar levels. If you are looking for any specific guidance, it will be better if you come with details like present fasting and pp levels, hba1c%, bp readings and drugs with dosage and diet and exercise pattern. Then I will be able to guide.
