Dear lybrate-user, You are young and should monitor all your health issues with a properly planned nutritious diet, exercise and life style. Begin Yoga and pranayama. With proper planning, at your age, BP can come under good control without medication and you can lead a normal happy life. Foods that will help: Green leafy vegs; Dahi/ curd/butter milk BEFORE food; pomegranate, beet, honey. Resist taking packaged foods of any kind and fried foods. Regards.

Hello Mr. Iyer, hypertension (high blood pressure) can be controlled by- 1. Balanced diet low in sodium- reduce intake of salt, restrict table salt on salads, drinks, restrict ppc- papad, pickle, chutnies, ketchups. Instead use more tomatoes, lemon, tamarind for the taste factor in food. Increase intake of potassium rich fruits like coconut water to bring down bp immediately. Sweetlime, orange, banana are other choices. 2. Exercise- an hour of cardio activity like walking, jogging, swimming, outdoor games like badminton, tennis which you are engaged in will help. However try to add variations in your activity. 3. Rest- a good night's for 7-8 hrs goes a long wat in controlling bp. 4. De-stress- reduction of stress on the mind and body by doing meditation or yoga atleast 3 times/week will help. All the best.

Hello dear patient. High 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 . 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, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. As you are suffering from high blood pressure you must be taking some medicines for your problem. If you are not taking any medicines I would advise you to walk for at least 1 hour daily. Abstain from high cholesterol rich foods like red meat, eggs. Don't over-exert yourself. Your high blood pressure will make you to sweat much than normal persons, so don't forget to drink plenty of water. Try to have at least 8 hours sleep. Last but surely not the least, try to avoid any type of mental stress.

Exercise and the Heart
Getting regular exercise is very important to your heart health, whether you are currently healthy, or already have a heart condition. Fortunately, getting "enough" exercise, and getting it safely, can be relatively easy to do for most people. These articles will tell you what you need to know about getting the right amount of exercise for your heart.
Why Is Exercise So Beneficial?
Regular exercise does a lot more than merely strengthen the heart.
Regular exercise can improve the function of your musculoskeletal system, your cardiovascular system, your respiratory system, your metabolism, and even your brain. And as a result, exercise can help you live longer, remain vigorous well into your old age, and to be more productive.
Read about the benefits of exercise.
Heart Healthy Exercise Guidelines
Reaping the rewards of regular exercise does not require you to completely change your lifestyle, or neglect your work or your family. In fact, you can gain most of the benefits of exercise with relatively small changes in your daily routine.
Read about the simple guidelines for heart-healthy exercise.
How Can I Begin An Exercise Program?

The hardest part about regular exercise is beginning it. It is easy to become bored if you start too slowly, or to become injured if you start too quickly. Fortunately, About.com's Exercise Guide has some very helpful information that will help you begin your exercise in a way that is safe and helps to maintains your interest.
Read about beginning an exercise program.
What About Exercise After A Heart Attack?
Exercise is not only okay after a heart attack, it is necessary. Studies show that heart attack survivors who participate in regular exercise have a significantly lower risk of mortality, and a lower risk of recurrent heart attacks.
Read about exercise, and other forms of cardiac rehabilitation, after a heart attack.
After a heart attack, it is natural to wonder when it is safe to resume sexual activity (which turns out to be a favorite form of "exercise" for many). Fortunately, the answer is usually pretty straightforward.

Sudden death in apparently healthy young athletes is a rare but tragic event. Most of these sudden deaths are due to underlying heart conditions that were undiagnosed prior to the fatal event. For this reason, some experts have advocated screening young people for heart disease before they participate in athletic activities. But because these heart conditions are relatively uncommon, and because screening can be expensive, how and when to do such screening has been a controversial question.
Exercise Recommendations For Specific Cardiac Conditions
If you have heart disease, regular exercise is as important -- and likely more important -- than it is for a person without heart disease. However, you may need to pay attention to guidelines designed for your specific type of cardiac condition.

Hye, thanks for the query. Being underweight can be a concern if it's the result of poor nutrition. Here are some healthy ways to gain weight when you're underweight: eat more frequently. When you're underweight, you may feel full faster. Eat five to six smaller meals during the day rather than two or three large meals. Choose nutrient-rich foods. As part of an overall healthy diet, choose whole-grain breads, rice and cereals; fruits and vegetables; dairy products; lean protein sources; and nuts. Don't fill up on diet soda, coffee and other drinks with few calories and little nutritional value. Instead, drink smoothies or healthy shakes. Snack on nuts, dried fruits and fresh fruits. Even when you're underweight, be mindful of excess sugar and fat. An occasional slice of cake or ice cream is fine. But most sweets should be healthy and provide nutrients in addition to calories. Sheera, lassi and chikki are good choices. Exercise, especially strength training, can help you gain weight by building up your muscles. Exercise may also stimulate your appetite.

It needs to be investigated. Investigations advised - hb, tlc, dlc, esr, sugar f & pp, uric acid, vit d3 urine r/e x ray of the affected part.

Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

Baby grows maximum during last 3 months after 6 months, your problem is very common. Women do need extra calories for 2. Eat a healthy diet with more simple proteins like milk and curds plus don't forget iron and folic acid tabs and calcium tabs. Get hb tested and cbc. Go for regular antenatals and get bp checked and watch for swellings, take less sugar and salt despite having normal bp and blood sugar levels. Get checked for thyroid profile done along with blood sugar as gestational diabetes can be a remote cause which needs to be ruled out. Continue routine household work unless your doctor suggests bed rest. Do get back with reports.
