First thing is take proper anti diabetic drugs to control blood sugar. Also take proper anti hypertensive treatment. As regards the food no direct sugar and sweets, avoid deep fried foods, mutton. You may eat fruits like papaya, orange, water melons, apple, guava, pear and jamun. Exercise regularly. Maintain your weight near normal.

1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result you will feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication.

Lipid indicates us how is our heart healthy or not. Lipid profile or lipid panel is a panel of blood tests that serves as an initial broad medical screening tool for abnormalities in lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides.

Hello doctor, what are the symptoms of blood pressure and diabetes. What is the solution on it?

Hello doctor, what are the symptoms of blood pressure and diabetes. What is the solution on it?
Dear Increased urination, hunger, n thirst are signature symptoms of diabetes. Eating right is vital if you?re trying to prevent or control diabetes. While exercise is also important, what you eat has the biggest impact when it comes to weight loss. But what does eating right for diabetes mean? You may be surprised to hear that your nutritional needs are virtually the same everyone else: no special foods or complicated diets are necessary. A diabetes diet is simply a healthy eating plan that is high in nutrients, low in fat and added sugar, and moderate in calories. It is a healthy diet for anyone! The only difference is that you need to pay more attention to some of your food choices?most notably the carbohydrates you eat.

Exercise stress test (also called treadmill test) is an important investigation not only in patients with suspected cad but also in established cad. In the former group, it helps us to exclude cad in patients with chest pain and in the later group, it helps us to assess functional capacity, risk stratification and to detect any additional (new or residual) ischemia. Stress test being a physiological test, has a huge advantage of assessing the adequacy of myocardial blood flow without even knowing the coronary anatomy, while coronary angiogram (cag) has a zero physiological value* in spite of excellent assessment of the coronary anatomy! it is an irony, in the assessment of angina we are expected to assess the physiological adequacy of myocardial blood flow, we have kept coronary angiogram as a gold standard over and above the much neglected physiological stress test. Of course, the limitation of stress test is that, it has only 75% specificity (to rule out cad) and about 80% sensitivity (to detect cad. In simple terms stress test is likely to miss 20% times to miss a cad in patients with cad and 25% of times falsely diagnose cad in patients without cad. In the above statistics, coronary angiogram was considered gold standard. The problem with this data is that, cag is not the real gold standard, but it was nominated as a gold standard. We now know normal coronary angiogram is not equivalent to normal coronary arteries and vice versa. While both test have limitations, it is logical to believe cag has an edge over stress test since it visualises the anatomy. But, once an obstruction is demonstrated by cag, stress test scores over in assessing the physiological impact of the lesion.

Avoid chillies. Drink plenty of water. Try to analyse what food habits increase your problem. Continue pantocid for now. Take it in empty stomach followed by 1 more hour of fasting.

I am hepatitis b positive and my lipid profile is also deranged should I take antilipidemic drugs.
Antilipidemic drus for such complicated case is to be treated carefully. Lipidis initially may be controlled by ezetimide & fibrates & diet, exercise etc. If not controlled then for hepatitis b virus is to be treated with nucleotide antiviral drugs with low dose of statin may be given.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

The anti-insulin antibody test checks to see if your body has produced antibodies against insulin. Normally, there are no antibodies against insulin in your blood. Normal value ranges may vary slightly among different laboratories.

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.
