What are the symptoms of high blood pressure? What are some medicines to cure it?
Dear Lybrateuser, - Symptoms of high blood pressure can be headache, dizziness, breathlessness on exertion, chest pain, palpitations, blurred vision, tiredness - different groups of medicine are there like diuretics, calcium channel blockers, beta blockers, these can be prescribed by a cardiologist for the problem after investigations & check up.

I have breathing problems in 6 months but last 8 months ago I take ecg its normal but I severe breathing on this how to solve the problems. Which doctor I have consult. I have already take psychiatric medicine using in quetiapine 275 mg using depression problems in 5 years it any side effects problems this drug. Or some other heart or lungs. Please help me.

If Chest physician has ruled out medical reasons for breathing problem, it can be a part of anxiety disorder. Quetiapine does not likely cause this. So inform this to your psychiatrist and it can be controlled. All the best.

Cardiac Arrest In 30s: The Challenges Of Restarting Your Life!

Cardiac Arrest In 30s: The Challenges Of Restarting Your Life!

With changing lifestyles, disease patterns have also changed. Cardiac arrest, which was earlier reported in the elderly only, is now affecting people as young as in their 30s. This is attributed to a combination of factors including poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, environmental toxins and pollution, smoking, drinking, caffeine and stress levels. There is also an inevitable risk of family history and advancing age. However, as an individual is affected by cardiac arrest in the 30s, there is a lifestyle change that is required. This is not only to prevent a recurrent cardiac arrest, but also to reduce the pace of damage from the current one.

The change is not unidimensional one needs to change one’s physical, emotional and mental aspects to come up with a revised lifestyle.

  1. Medications: There are a set of medications to be taken regularly. So learn to identify and take them. A pill box that can contain all the pills for a week, sorted by the time to be taken, can come in handy.
  2. Diet changes: While it is always advisable to watch what you eat, a cardiac arrest leaves one with no choice. Reduce the intake of sodium and calcium and increase potassium. Avoid processed and packaged foods. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat dairy. Eat more of foods with antioxidants.
  3. Slow down: After a cardiac arrest, the person tends to slow down the physical pace of life. Lifting heavy weights may be best avoided. If you were a regular workout person, it needs to be modified to avoid excessive stress.
  4. Constant watch: Be it your blood pressure, weight, cholesterol or other blood tests, these should be periodically monitored and watched for any alarming differences. Keep your doctor updated so you are not caught off guard.
  5. Work schedule: This will definitely need to be reworked at, especially if your job is a highly demanding one. The idea is not to stop working, but to relook at your schedule so you can contribute and at the same time not risk your health again.
  6. Emotions: While there is anxiety and depression, there is also a fear to tackle. The new modified lifestyle brings anxiety. The fact that you had a cardiac arrest at such a young age (unexpected in most cases) is depressing. The most prominent one though is of fear—will it happen again? How is it going to be? Will I survive? These questions can be haunting. It is definitely advisable to seek support from a counsellor if you do not have someone in your family or friends’ circle to talk to.

Cardiac arrest in the 30s is not easy. It comes with multiple challenges, but you can definitely overcome it.

Hi. Cholesterol had to be checked for complete 12 hours of fasting. If you eat or drink anything (except water) in between then you can get false high cholesterol reports. Please send the level of hdl and ldl mentioned in the report. Take care.

You need to first understand few things about blood pressure. Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90, anything above or below is is abnormal. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels 4) your lifestyle - smoking, drinking, exercise  Stress, less sleep, smoking, alcohol, overweight, heart, kidney problems, lack of physical exercise. All of these can cause High blood pressure. You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up.  Highblood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. So my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP record daily for at least one week & Every time you need to measure BP twice with a gap of 15 mins rest. 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac / kidney issues & find if there is any treatable cause of High blood pressure 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH KFT  Renal doppler  Get back to me with a detailed history and  old / new records For Now Keep taking the same medicines which you are taking .plus Start lifestyle changes & diet changes Emphasizes vegetables, fruits, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. Includes whole grains, fish, poultry, beans, seeds, nuts, and vegetable oils. Limits sodium, sweets, sugary beverages, and red meats. Along with this, other lifestyle changes can help lower your blood pressure. They include staying at a healthy weight, exercising, and not smoking.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch.
