What does high sensitivity c reactive protein 4.32 and LDL cholesterol 134 for 30 year old male indicate.
It indicated that you are at a high risk of heart disease. It can either be heart block or Heart attack as your LDL is also borderline high. It is better to start controlling your diet and start regular exercises now. Swimming is the best option as it works up each and every muscle of the body. You can also start gymming if you like.

Micro vascular ischemic disease is extremely common among the elderly in developed countries due to the high prevalence of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). I recommend a diet that includes the following: An abundance of plant food, including fruit, vegetables, breads, pasta, potatoes, beans, nuts and seeds Minimally processed foods, with a focus on seasonally fresh and locally grown products Fresh fruit as the typical daily dessert, with sweets containing concentrated sugars or honey consumed a few times per week at the most Daily consumption of dairy products, principally cheese and yogurt, in low to moderate amounts and in low-fat varieties Regular consumption of fish Moderate consumption of poultry and eggs—about one to four times weekly—or not at all Small, infrequent amounts of red meat Olive oil as the principal source of fat Wine in low to moderate amounts, normally with meals We have formulations for VID (Atherosclerosis ).

I am 40 years old. I am experiencing palpitations since last one year. Earlier this problem was not accurately diagnosed because the symptoms were weird. There were vibrations in the left side of the head and numbness in left leg and hand. So I started taking Librium 10. It helped but not completely. Then I started taking Inderal 40 twice daily for 10 days. It helped but at times I feel palpitations. I want to know two things. How to get rid of Librium10 because whenever I skip its dose I feel weakness and numbness in leg. And secondly will I be able to get rid of palpitations?

Palpitations can be due to several reasons .Did you get a proper detailed medical, dietary history taken by a Dr. Was a Holter monitoring and echo done along with a ECG. Done to rule out structural heart disease. If you r interested in a free consult go to my website and connect with me through the whats app number listed .I would be able to help you most probably to take you off the medications once I get to the root cause.

I am 55 years old. Last months week I have cholesterol 220. How can I control this?
Hello dear High triglycerides and 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 .do meditation,yoga, 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,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

How to reduce cholesterol without medication. Total cholesterol 233 mg/dl Ldl 162 Non Hdl 186.4 age 51 female.

Homeopath,
How to reduce cholesterol without medication. Total cholesterol 233 mg/dl Ldl 162 Non Hdl 186.4 age 51 female.
Dear lybrate user, cholesterol is naturally produced inside the body of every living animal. Human beings are no exception to that. But when we take mutton, chicken, yellow part of a boiled egg, ghee, butter etc we intake cholesterol from external source. This extra cholesterol from external sources increase the total cholesterol content of human body. You should always keep your cholesterol level within normal limits as high cholesterol serves as a precursor to various cardiac diseases. Avoid the aforesaid food. Walk at least 1 hour in a day without any interval. Also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture fucus vesiculosus q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Exposure to cold water externally increases heart rate as well as blood pressure. There is also some increase in bp when we drink cold water bt it is not a very significant increase in normal healthy individuals.

Complications of High Blood Pressure Persistent high blood pressure can result in multiple complications.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Some people with hypertension may react with alarm when they check their blood pressure at home or at the drugstore and the reading is elevated. It's not unusual for people with an isolated finding of elevated blood pressure to show up at the local emergency department with sudden concern, but in many cases, the real concern is not a single high reading, but the cumulative effect of persistent uncontrolled hypertension. Hypertension is a risk factor for many negative health outcomes, including heart failure, coronary artery disease, stroke, kidney disease, peripheral artery disease and hypertensive retinopathy, a disease of the eye. Hypertension is also associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus, which is why the united states preventive services task force has issued a recommendation for diabetic screening in people with high blood pressure. Good control of blood pressure results in a rapid reduction of risk for cardiovascular disease.

Hypertensive heart disease results from changes in both the structure of the heart and blood vessels and their function as the body adapts to abnormally high blood pressure. If you can imagine the heart as a pump operating against a fluid circuit, picture the increased work of that pump if pressure within the circuit is increased. Some of the changes caused by persistent high blood pressure can be partially reversed with treatment using ace inhibitor medications.

Hypertension results in wear and tear of vital organs and vessels as a result of mechanical stress.

Blood vessels have mechanisms to regulate blood flow throughout the body, and when high blood pressure occurs, the blood vessels constrict in initial response. Eventually, the walls of the blood vessels thicken and tissue damage occurs, resulting in hardening of the vessel walls.

Hypertensive disease of the eye is known as hypertensive retinopathy. In the retina of the eye, changes in the blood vessels eventually result in disruption of the integrity of the vessel, and blood or fatty acids may leak onto the delicate retinal tissue. This results in permanent vision change, and it's very preventable.

Complications of stroke can be due to hemorrhage of the blood vessels that supply the brain, or, more frequently, can result from poor blood flow through arteries damaged by persistent high blood pressure. Approximately 85% of strokes are ischemic, or due to poor blood flow. Another manifestation of hypertensive disease that affects the brain is hypertensive encephalopathy. This condition refers to a change in mental status, frequently accompanied by headache and nausea, that results from swelling in the brain caused by alterations in blood flow at very high blood pressure. This condition is associated with malignant hypertension, or hypertensive emergency.

Persistent high blood pressure is one of the leading causes of chronic kidney disease, frequently requiring dialysis. Blood is filtered through the kidneys, and when the small blood vessels of the kidney are damaged by chronic uncontrolled hypertension, the body becomes unable to filter waste. People with kidney damage eventually spend hours hooked to dialysis machines that can remove waste products from their bloodstream, or they may require a kidney transplant. In either case, prevention of the complication is preferable and less complex.

Unfortunately, it is easy to underestimate the cumulative effects of high blood pressure, since the damage is asymptomatic initially. It's important to recognize the inevitable consequences of ignoring persistent high blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure, it's important to realize the silent damage occurring over time if your blood pressure is not adequately treated. If you have a high blood pressure reading, you should repeat measurement on two more occasions. If your blood pressure remains above the level your doctor has suggested, it is essential to follow up. There are many excellent and affordable medications available for treatment of hypertension. Some people require a combination of drugs to maintain control. Whatever the case, the inconvenience of treatment is far exceeded by the benefits to your health over a lifetime.

I an suffering from hypertension from last one month. Also I have stress on my mind. What I have to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I an suffering from hypertension from last one month. Also I have stress on my mind. What I have to do.
It is the stress that is causing the hypertension. For a young chap like you to have this level of stress there must be something rather serious to trouble you. The hypertension is nothing but high blood pressure. These are the measures you must take to contain hypertension: Reducing your daily saturated fat intake to 7 percent; Reducing your total fat intake to 25 to 35 percent; Limiting your dietary cholesterol to less than 200 mg; Eating 20 to 30 g of soluble fiber found in oats, peas, beans, and certain fruits; Increasing your intake of plant stanols or sterols, substances found in nuts, vegetable oils, corn and rice, to 2 to 3 g. Other foods that can help control cholesterol include cold-water fish, such as mackerel, sardines, and salmon. These fish contain omega-3 fatty acids that may lower triglycerides. Soybeans found in tofu, soy nuts and many meat substitutes contain a powerful antioxidant that can lower LDL. A supplement known as psyllium can help you increase your soluble fiber intake. Made from seed grain husks, psyllium helps absorb water and cholesterol from your intestines and may improve the ratio of HDL to LDL. You must exercise as per the approval of your doctor, by walking at least 30 minutes daily. For hypertension: The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet includes eating foods with potential antihypertensive activity like fresh fruits and vegetables (amla juice, beetroot garlic and radish), whole grains, milk, etc and lowering the intake of salt and processed foods. Apart from Yoga you must take the following regularly: Probiotics, Bananas, Citrus fruits, Papaya, Berries, Avocado, Potatoes, Leafy veggies, Beetroot, Peas and beans, & Radish. Exercise: Regular physical activity of 30 to 60 minutes lowers your blood pressure level by 4 – 9 mm Hg. Natural herbs: The commonly used natural remedies with antihypertensive property include garlic, custard apple, celery, ajwain, carrot, flaxseeds (alsi), tomato, drumsticks, basil (tulsi), pomegranate, sesame (til), cocoa bean, wheat bran, black plum and ginger. Stress management: Stress is one of the key factors responsible for hypertension. The various relaxation techniques used to relieve stress and lower high blood pressure are controlled breathing, reiki, acupuncture and meditation. You must get this book and keep it at home to be referred to regularly, ‘Reversing the Heart Disease’, by Dr. Dean Ornish.
