My left hand pulse is coming 73 and right side pulse is coming 65 why it is happening.
Your pulse rate keeps changing constantly second to second. By the time you counted in one hand and went to the other hand, it can change. There is no fixed constant pulse rate for any human being. There is only a normal range. Even bp is usually different in the arms of the same person and changes from minute to minute. These are multifactorial as your body keeps adjusting to daily minute to minute factors internal and external. Don't worry about it. Your finding is not a disease. It is only misinterpretation due to your ignorance.

I presume your wife is of similar age like you, in her twenties. At this age structural heart disease causing chest pain is highly unlikely. Most likely it should be anxiety or stress related. Check with a psychiatrist regarding this. One structural heart disease that can cause similar symptom in this age is Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome but that should be picked up by 2D Echo.

Please consult a doctor for correct prescription of BP medication. Variations of 10 points plus minus is not to worry about. Human body responds to natural situation and change in mind state, food and fatigue will affect BP But at her age, and at those measurements for BP, it is best she takes some medication as soon as possible.

I have had this problem for a while but it seems to be getting much worse. I think it is probably due to anxiety but not sure. Whenever I lay down afternoon or at night I can hear and feel my heart beating. It feels as though there is a sledge hammer in my chest pounding back and forth. I can hear and feel every single beat. It makes it impossible to relax and rest. I am now having trouble going to sleep because of it. I am always tired. I experience body aches. I can not do physical activity long enough like my peers.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Please do whatever is permissible for your age.

Dear , fast heart beats are due to abnormal electrical circuits inside heart. You needs to see an arrhythmia specialist (electrophysiologist). We can investigate you by ecg, holter monitoring, and if necessary by ep study for palpitations. Such fast heartbeats can sometimes be dangerous, so it is necessary to investigate further.

Screening for Prehypertension

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Guidelines for vary from time to time, but generally accepted classification of hypertension (jnc7) is

Average of two or more properly measured readings at each of two or more visits after an initial screen:

Normal lesser than 120 mm hg sbp and dbp lesser than 90 mm hg

Prehypertension 120 -139 mm hg sbp or dbp 80 to 89 mm hg

Stage 1 htn 140 -159 mm hg sbp or dbp 90 to 99 mm hg

Stage 2 htn greter than/= 160 mm of hg sbp or dbp greter than/= 100 mm hg.

Prevalence of prehypertension among adults in united states is approximately 37 percent.

Study done by yadhav s et al showed prevalence of prehypetension was 32.3 percent in india with highest 36% among 30-39 yrs age group, indicates that awareness is necessary for regular blood pressure check up.

People diagnosed with hypertension represents 'tip of an iceberg'.

Many patients get to know about their raised blood pressures at the time of diagnosis, heart attack, stroke or kidney disease (end organ failures) which would have been preventable if treated at an early stage.

Why hypertension should be diagnosed and treated?

Hypertension currently causes 2/3rd s of all strokes and half of all cases of ischemic heart disease.

Reduction in high blood pressure leads to large reduction in stroke, heart failure, renal failure, aortic dissection, coronary events and death.

Prehypertension: it is an entity where sbp greater than 120 -139 mm hg or dbp 80-89 mm hg.

Multiple epidemiological studies demonstrated increased cardiovascular risk in patients with prehypertension. People with prehypertension have increased risk of progression to sustained hypertension, the prevalence of hypertension increases from approximately 10 percent at age of 30 yrs to as high as 90 percent after age of 65 yrs.

Framinham hypertension risk prediction score, may help identification of prehypertensive patients who are at gretest risk for pregression to hypertension. Risk calculator includes variables like age, sex, family history of hypertension, body mass index and smoking. Most important predictors of these were higher baseline blood pressure and older age.

Screening for hypertension: optimal interval for screening is not known.

2007 uspstf (united states preventive services task force) guidelines recommend

Screening every two years for persons with sbp lesser than 120 mm hg and dbp lesser than 80 mm hg

Yearly for persons with sbp 120-139 mm hg or a dbp 80 -89 mm hg

How to manage prehypertension:

Trophy stydy (trial of preventing hypertension) results showed that there is no role for pharmacotherapy in prehypertension except in special conditions like diabetes, chronic kidney disease etc.

Treatment: as per jnc 7 reccomendations patients with prehypertension who do not have diabetes, chronic kidney disease, end organ damage, or clinical evidence of cardiovascular disease are generally treated with non pharmacological therapies.

Major non pharmacological therapies that aid to decrease blood pressure are: 

Weight reduction: maintain normal body weight (bmi 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m2) this can reduce by 5 to 20 mm hg per 10kg weight loss.

Adopt dash eating plan: (dash- dietary approach to stop hypertension) consists of fruits, vegetables, legumes, low-fat dairy products with reduced saturated and total fat. This can reduce bp by 8 to 14 mm hg.

Dietary sodium restriction: reduce dietary sodium intake to no more than 100meq/day (2.4 gm sodium or 6 gm of sodium chloride). This can reduce bp by 2 to 8 mm hg.

Physical activity: engage in a regular aerobic physical activity such as brisk walking (at least 30 min per day, most days of the week). This can reduce bp by 4 to 9 mm hg.

Moderation of alcohol: limit consumption of alcohol to no more than 2 drinks per day in most men and no more than 1 drink in women and lighter weight persons. This can reduce bp by 2 to 4 mm hg.

Hello, the most healthiest of all nuts are almonds, followed by walnuts and pistachios. But one should always include nuts in their diet in a recommended amount. Cashew nuts have a lower fat content than most other nuts and is heart-healthy monounsaturated fats which is considered to be a good fat. One should have 4 to 5 cashew nuts every day.

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.
