Dear Doctor, I am having diabetic and hypertension for the last 12 years. I am 51 years old. I am presently taking the following medicines: Glycomet GP 0.5 mg 2-0-2 Zita 100 mg 1-0-0 Atorva 10 0 -0-1 Olmax 40 1-0-0 Revelol am 5 /50 - 0-0-1 Presently on a recent checking my BP levels and cholestrol levels seems to be fine and normal. BP 90/130 Total Cholestrol : 118, Trigliceride: 127 ,LDL : 60 ,HDL :45. I presume my BP and cholestrol and BP levels are fine with these numbers. My concern is diabetics. Earlier 3 years back my medication was Pioglit 15 , after its so called ban, doctor changed the medicine to Glycomet GP 0.5 mg which i am using for the last three and half years. My fasting & pp sugar initially even after medication happens to be 130 / 170 levels. However during the last 4 months my sugar started shooting up , partly due to official preoccupations. My HbA1c levels are nearing 8 and morning fasting levels ( vary between 170 to 200) depending on the food what i take at night. Doctor asked me to increase the dosage of medicine and now i am using Glycomet GP 0.5 mg 2-0-2 instead of earlier 1-0-1. Zita i am using only 100 mg. I am not seeing any change in sugar levels. I s the combination right ? should i need to change it ? Please guide. Since i have a touring job for 15 days a month, i resort to outside food and i do walking. Please guide.

82 years my father suffer with backach and low backach since last 10 years and he takes number of medicines prescribed by expert doctors. Present now he can' t walk strightly, different parts legs and finger bones grown up (gouts) very fast, chest pain, serious pain in abdominal stomach. What to do?

Hi , he' s taking too many medicines which will give him abdominal pain. I would suggest for a home physiotherapist who can make him to do some active assisted exercises and help him to walk. After looking at you dad and assessing him the physio will be able to suggest you whether cold or hot fomentation will help for his back. In case of disc bulge and any tear then cold pack works well and in case of muscle spasm hot works well Dr. Avanthiprabhakar

My sis cholesterol is 350 and thyroid problem do suggest diet and how to control it ?

My sis cholesterol is 350 and thyroid problem do suggest diet and how to control it ?
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 . Cap. Ecosprin gold-20 at night daily. TAB. clopidrogal once a day.

This high blood pressure may be the cause of his headache & uneasiness. This BP needs to be brought down immediately so It will be best to take him to a local hospital and get BP lowering treatment started under the observation of a cardiologist, if there are no cardiologist near you, then consult an MD medicine. Once the BP stabilizes take him to a cardiologist for a detailed cardiac evaluation.

Hypertension - 4 Negative Effects of it!

MBBS, MD - General Medicine

Hypertension -  4 Negative Effects of it!

Are you suffering from hypertension? This medical condition occurs when your blood pressure level increases rapidly. Hypertension may occur because of several reasons and it can interfere with the overall functioning of the body affecting different parts. It may lead to severe health hazards, such as stroke, heart failure and heart diseases. 

Other body parts like kidneys, eyes and limbs may also be affected by hypertension. Here are the various effects of hypertension on different parts of the body:

  1. Circulatory system: High blood pressure may cause arteries to stretch too much, which leads to damage. A scar tissue may develop within the arteries over a period of time. This is a condition known as atherosclerosis, which traps cholesterol and plaque, leading to coronary artery disease. When the heart’s left ventricle gets thickened, the ability to pump blood gets disrupted. Trapped blood may result in blood clots, which block and narrow the arteries, causing a stroke or heart attack. Chest pain and arrhythmias are also likely to occur from high blood pressure.
  2. Central nervous system: An unsteady supply of oxygen in the blood leads to the dysfunction of the brain. Narrowed arteries and blood clot block the flow of blood to the brain and this is referred to as a transient ischemic attack or a mini stroke. People with this condition are more likely to experience a full stroke, if the blood supply to the brain shuts off completely. Hypertension is the biggest risk factor for strokes. Mild cognitive impairment and vascular dementia are other effects on the central nervous system due to hypertension. Retinopathy occurs when there is some damage in the blood vessels, which carry blood to the eyes. It causes bleeding and builds fluid in the retina.
  3. Excretory system: The kidneys too are affected when there is a lack of oxygenated blood supply and they cannot function normally. Due to restricted blood supply, the kidneys may become inefficient at removing toxins for which you may need a kidney transplant or dialysis.  
  4. Sexual dysfunction: Hypertension may lead to certain sexual dysfunctions in men and women. In men, the insufficient supply of blood to the penis will prevent him from achieving a proper erection during sex. Chronic high blood pressure may affect arteries and blood vessels, which lead to the penis and result in erectile dysfunction. In women, the blood flow to the vagina is affected due to hypertension. This leads to vaginal dryness, decreased libido, painful intercourse and pain during intercourse. 

Hypertension affects all the vital organs of the body. Hence, it is important for everyone to keep their blood pressure under check and in case of hypertension, proper management is required to reduce the various risks associated.  If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

At 92 kg he is definitely overweight. Normal ecg and 2d at rest do not rule out coronary artery disease. A treadmill test is advisable. If he is hypertensive and diabetic, then it is all the more reason to do it.
