Hi, Welcome. I have gone through report which shows that you have deranged lipid profile. Please tell me whether you have associated hypertension, diabetes or any heart disease. If yes than you will need medicine, otherwise it could be managed by dietary restrictions & exercise. Dietary restrictions include: Stop fat rich diet, Stop junk food, If fat is to be used, use olive oil. Exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes for 5 days in a week. If you want to decrease it by medication, we generally prescribe a medication Prelipid twice daily. This will reduce your cholesterol in 3 months. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, green color sputum usually indicates infection. There is a definite possibility of sinus infection persisting for sometime which may be trickling down into the windpipe leading to chest congestion. It is a common problem through which chest congestion continues. Your mosquito repellants or perfumes too sometimes initiate this problem. Steam inhalation or saline nebulization can liquify the sticky mucus and give some relief.

I am unable to breathe for the past 2 months. Heavy chest and no deep breathe. I smoke 6-10 cigarettes everyday. Please suggest what should I do.

MBBS, DPM

Dear Nirvic, i don't know how long you have been smoking. However yo try and stop smoking. Breathing problems are common in smokers. If yo stop smoking, there are other health benefits also in the long run. Please motivate yourself continuously for 12 weeks not to smoke. If you have withdrawal symptoms, please take the help of nicotine gum or patch, or Bupropion tablets. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, time to visit your doctor. Your sugar and bp both are uncontrolled. If they remain so, it's going to have long term consequences. You need to up your medication. After examining you your doctor may make a proper plan. Besides rigorous diet and exercise program should complement your medication.

You have told the answer to your query in your question that acidity increase with paranths and puri. Cut down on fats and take soothing diet like milk or curds and never remain empty stomach for long hours or eat a lot for 1 meal a day for diet control. Do drink green tea or clear soup or chaach after 2 hours to wash away collected acids. Remain active. Exercise does help in digestive process.

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is called diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually the systolic number comes before or above the diastolic number. A reading of 119/79 or lower is normal blood pressure 140/90 or higher is high blood pressure Between 120 and 139 for the top number, or between 80 and 89 for the bottom number is called prehypertension. Prehypertension means you may end up with high blood pressure, unless you take steps to prevent it. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but it can cause serious problems such as stroke, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure. You can control high blood pressure through healthy lifestyle habits such as exercise and the DASH diet and taking medicines, so to answer your question, yes its normal and you don't have to consult a doctor. But yes do keep a regular Blood pressure record t monitor your control.
