Your family doctor is right, sudden loss of a dear one does lead to panick attacks but one needs good understanding near and dear ones, she may not need a psychiatrist to help her. You can give her a mild tranquillizer like librium, I would be surprised if there was no reaction to ultimate truth like death, though reactions to sudden death vary from individuals, some keep emotions bottled up, others vent out which is less harmful compared to pent up emotions. Reassure her that since her tests are normal, nothing will happen to her. Life is fragile if we look at natural calamities, bomb blasts & road accidents. She has to look at death with a larger perspective, being surrounded by caring people who understand her and slowly try to instil some logic.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

Triglycerides are dependent upon calorie intake. So, if you can consume less sugars and calories and reduce weight through exercise, it will help you to reduce triglyceride levels. She can consume 1-2 eggs daily along with a balanced diet.

Depending on the reason for your low blood pressure, you may be able to take certain steps to help reduce or even prevent symptoms. Some suggestions include: Drink more water, less alcohol. Alcohol is dehydrating and can lower blood pressure, even if you drink in moderation. Water, on the other hand, combats dehydration and increases blood volume. Follow a healthy diet. Get all the nutrients you need for good health by focusing on a variety of foods, including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean chicken and fish. If your doctor suggests using more salt but you don't like a lot of salt on your food, try using natural soy sauce or adding dry soup mixes to dips and dressings. Go slowly when changing body positions. You may be able to reduce the dizziness and lightheadedness that occur with low blood pressure on standing by taking it easy when you move from a prone to a standing position. Before getting out of bed in the morning, breathe deeply for a few minutes and then slowly sit up before standing. Sleeping with the head of your bed slightly elevated also can help fight the effects of gravity. If you begin to get symptoms while standing, cross your thighs in a scissors fashion and squeeze, or put one foot on a ledge or chair and lean as far forward as possible. These maneuvers encourage blood to flow from your legs to your heart. 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. But because caffeine can cause other problems, check with your doctor before drinking more caffeinated beverages

Egg without yolk can be consumed. But why do you want to eat egg everyday. You should spread your diet to be more diverse and balanced.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Alcohol and the Heart
Doctors have struggled for several years now over whether to tell their patients about the potential cardiac benefits of alcohol. Over 60 clinical studies have suggested that light to moderate alcohol consumption (the equivalent of one or two 1 � oz. drinks of alcohol per day) can increase HDL cholesterol levels (the ?good? cholesterol,) can reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction (heart attack), and may have other cardiovascular benefits.
However, excessive alcohol consumption reliably causes a number of severe and often fatal medical problems, not to mention the destructive social pathologies associated with alcoholism itself.
For all these reasons, a special advisory panel of the American Heart Association issued a formal statement urging doctors not to recommend alcohol to their non-drinking patients as a means of reducing the risk of heart disease. This makes perfect sense. If doctors were seen to be encouraging alcohol, that would not only be politically incorrect, but might also lead to a significant increase in alcohol-related medical and social problems. Still, the apparent cardiac benefits of alcohol creates something of a dilemma for doctors.
The Evidence in Favor of Alcohol
Numerous prospective studies now suggest that people who engage in light to moderate alcohol consumption have a substantially reduced risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) - by as much as 40 - 70% - compared to those who drink either no alcohol, or those who drink more heavily.
And in a large meta-analysis that included over 80 observational studies, those with light to moderate alcohol intake had a 25% reduction in death from cardiovascular causes.
People who engage in light alcohol consumption appear to have a significantly reduced risk of developing heart failure.
Light to moderate alcohol consumption may help to prevent type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome. And in people who have diabetes, it may help to protect against CAD.
Up to two drinks per day may help to protect against stroke.
How Can Alcohol Protect the Heart?
Theories as to how light to moderate alcohol consumption can benefit cardiovascular health include the following:
Alcohol increases HDL cholesterol levels
Alcohol has antioxidant activity
Alcohol increases insulin sensitivity
Alcohol may help prevent abnormal blood clotting
Alcohol in low doses has anti-inflammatory properties
While it is widely believed that red wine may have special protective properties (largely stemming from the antioxidant properties of red grapes), in fact the overall data strongly suggests that it is the alcohol itself that is cardioprotective in small doses - regardless of the particular type of alcoholic beverage consumed.
The Evidence Against Alcohol
It is noteworthy that in all the studies assessing the effect of alcohol on the heart, women who consumed more than two drinks a day, and men who consumed more than three, had a substantial increase in overall cardiovascular mortality, including sudden death. Furthermore, several studies show that binge drinking (abstaining for several days, but drinking heavily on the days when alcohol is consumed) is associated with a substantially increased risk of CAD and of cardiovascular death.
In addition, drinking large amounts of alcohol is a well-recognized cause of cardiomyopathy and heart failure. People who have more than two drinks per day have a significantly increased risk of developing hypertension. And consuming more than two drinks per day appears to significantly increase the risk of stroke.
Both heavy drinking and binge drinking increase the risk of atrial fibrillation.
The Bottom Line
It appears quite evident that the relationship between alcohol and cardiac risk follows a "J-shaped" curve. Cardiac risk is lower when low to moderate alcohol is consumed than if either no alcohol is consumed, or if higher amounts of alcohol are consumed.
The problem for professional bodies and guideline-writers, obviously, is that many, many people find it difficult or impossible to limit their alcohol to one or two drinks per day. If guidelines actively promoted light alcohol consumption for the population, there is every reason to believe that the overall result would be a negative one, rather than a positive one. So, despite all the evidence regarding the cardiovascular benefits of light alcohol consumption, you should not hold your breath waiting for guidelines (or your doctor) to recommend such a thing.
