You have increased the dose of your medication still your blood pressure is not under control. Looking at your BP 150/95 and your age 38, both systolic and diastolic BP r high. Means both stress and cholesterol must be high which elevates systolic and diastolic BP respectively. So we have certain options for the treatment: 1, U can wait for few days more. In-between daily go for measurement of blood pressure. 2, U can do a diet along with the medication, which is a salt free cholesterol free diet. 3, U can do meditation and exercises along with the same medicine. 4, U can start homeopathic medicines and mother tinctures like lycopodium, rauvolfia and many more are there. U can consult us on Lybrate in private consultation. Following r the suggestions for food to be taken and avoided: Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg. This eating plan is known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diet. It isn't easy to change your eating habits, but with these tips, you can adopt a healthy diet: Keep a food diary. Writing down what you eat, even for just a week, can shed surprising light on your true eating habits. Monitor what you eat, how much, when and why. Consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. Talk to your doctor about the potassium level that's best for you. Be a smart shopper. Read food labels when you shop and stick to your healthy-eating plan when you're dining out, too. Reduce sodium in your diet Even a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can reduce blood pressure by 2 to 8 mm Hg. The effect of sodium intake on blood pressure varies among groups of people. In general, limit sodium to less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) a day or less. However, a lower sodium intake — 1,500 mg a day or less — is appropriate for people with greater salt sensitivity, including: African-Americans Anyone age 51 or older Anyone diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease To decrease sodium in your diet, consider these tips: Read food labels. If possible, choose low-sodium alternatives of the foods and beverages you normally buy. Eat fewer processed foods. Only a small amount of sodium occurs naturally in foods. Most sodium is added during processing. Don't add salt. Just 1 level teaspoon of salt has 2,300 mg of sodium. Use herbs or spices to add flavor to your food. Ease into it. If you don't feel you can drastically reduce the sodium in your diet suddenly, cut back gradually. Your palate will adjust over time. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink Alcohol can be both good and bad for your health. In small amounts, it can potentially lower your blood pressure by 2 to 4 mm Hg. But that protective effect is lost if you drink too much alcohol — generally more than one drink a day for women and for men older than age 65, or more than two a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. Drinking more than moderate amounts of alcohol can actually raise blood pressure by several points. It can also reduce the effectiveness of blood pressure medications. Reduce the cholesterol in your diet by reducing LDL rich oils and vegetable Ghee, add HDL by suffola sunflower olive oil etc and pure Ghee. Avoid dairy products and sweets. Drink double toned or cow milk only. Avoid curd yogurts papad achar extra [table]salt in general.

Hi. Thanku for writing into lybrate. Com 5. Feeling tired or shaky 6. Fever or chills (a sign the infection may have reached your kidneys) medications:- 1. Neeri syrup-10 ml with warm water. 2. Tab gokshuradi guggulu-2 tab daily thrice. 3. Tab c. P. Vati-2 tab daily twice. Tips:- 1. Empty your bladder frequently as soon as you feel the need to go; don't rush, and be sure you've emptied your bladder completely. 2. Wipe from front to back. 3. Drink lots of water. 4. Choose showers over baths. 5. Stay away from feminine hygiene sprays, scented douches, and scented bath products -- they'll only increase irritation. 6. Cleanse your genital area before sex. 7. Urinate after sex to flush away any bacteria that may have entered your urethra. 8. If you use a diaphragm, unlubricated condoms, or spermicidal jelly for birth control, consider switching to another method. Diaphragms can increase bacteria growth, while unlubricated condoms and spermicides can cause irritation. All can make uti symptoms more likely. 9. Keep your genital area dry by wearing cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothes. Avoid tight jeans and nylon underwear -- they can trap moisture, creating the perfect environment for bacteria growth. Follow this for 15 days, if nt reduces consult us on lybrate. Com.

Delhi Enveloped In Smog Cover - Air Quality Turns Hazardous!

Delhi Enveloped In Smog Cover - Air Quality Turns Hazardous!

In nearly two decades, the capital had its worst spell of pollution. Delhi’s air quality today slithered to the ‘hazardous’ level, the wind speed was low coupled with high moisture content resulting in a build-up choking smog cover. The visibility reduced to 50 meters in the morning today, giving Delhiites a tough time on the onset of the winter season.

With the Capital’s ever-increasing air pollution, the Real-time Air Quality Index (AQI) reported the air quality in most parts of Delhi as ‘hazardous’. As per reports, the PM 2.5 levels in the city are alarmingly high. The level of pollution was highest with PM 2.5 at 999 µgm-3 in areas such as RK Puram and Punjabi Bagh and PM 2.5 level shooting up to 715 Âµgm-3 & 704 Âµgm-3 in other areas. The situation was quite critical, so much that the IMA declared 'the state of public health emergency' in Delhi.

The doctors and medical practitioners in Delhi have advised the residents to stay indoors as prolonged exposure to the particulate matter can cause several respiratory diseases. Children, elderly people and patients suffering from lung diseases have especially, been advised to avoid outdoor activities during this time.

Further, air quality in NCR region for Faridabad, Noida and Greater Noida will also remain very poor. The weather department has further, declared that the air quality is likely to worsen in next few days, with a decrease in the temperature. 

What should you do to prevent yourself?

  1. Drink as much water as possible.
  2. Stay indoors and wear a mask when stepping out.
  3. Have chayawanprash to boost your immunity.
  4. Keep the windows and doors closed and use air purifiers at home.
  5. Consult a doctor immediately in case breathlessness, nausea, headaches or sore-throat.

Hi. I understand your concerns. Asthma is chronic and a common problem causing symptoms. You will need to undergo a detailed examination and investigations like chest x ray to look for infection. If it's normal then you will need to undergo pulmonary function test which is needed for diagnosis and also to assess severity of asthma based on which treatemnt can be started. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Thanks.

Greetings Mr. lybrate-user, I understand your query. Gall bladder is an organ in your body, essential for bile juice storage and secretion which is useful in digestion of the food we consume. The location of gall bladder is on the right side of abdomen attatched to lower side of liver. Pain due to gall stones can be vague and mostly presents around belly button or more on right side. Apart from that, other symptoms showing indigestion and change of colour of stools and less commonly jaundice can also occur. So I do not think your symptoms suggests gall stones. Also heriditary concept of gall stones is very rare. Hence please do not be alarmed. Your symptoms mainly suggest it to be gastritis. But again you can always go for an ultrasound abdomen to check for any abnormalities. Coming to the concept of preventing gall stone formation, cholesterol is the main source of gall stones. So be watchful on your cholesterol levels. That would be enough. Any further queries, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.

Hi, This vaccine does not have any side effects. This vaccination works by making the body produce antibodies against the HPV virus which causes cervical cancer. These antibodies protect the body from an HPV infection, by fighting the virus when it attacks the cervix, thus offers protection against cervical cancer. This vaccine should be gien as early as possible in adolescent girls as this is when the best immune response to the vaccine is achieved.

I feel you are not taking a nutritious diet. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. B. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. C. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. D. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. E. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. F. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. G. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain.

When you bathe immediately after sweating and your body is hot, the body temperature suddenly drops and you get sore throat. Avoid bathing till your body cools down.

Apple cider vinegar is known as an appetite suppressor, so the consumption of it will help you to lose weight as well as prevent fat accumulation.
