Hello doctor. I am suffering from low BP. I have joined in yoga class at 5.30 am. While doing yoga I am loosing all my energy. Am unable to perform well. Can I eat anything before going yoga class? And how can I overcome this low BP?

Cardiologist, Delhi
The low BP may be due to low sugar as you are going empty stomach and doing workout. It will be best if you eat something light like a biscuit/rusk with a cup of tea or milk and take water/juice rather than going empty stomach.

Dear Lybrateuser, - The best natural source of vit d is natural sunlight, a walk for 10-15 min in morning sunlight (best between 9 am to 1-2 pm) is sufficient enough for the days requirement - foods rich in vit d include fish such as salmon, tuna, mackeral, eggs, organ meats such as liver, fortified milk, soya milk, orange juice & cereals, incorporate some of these items in your diet - to reduce cholesterol have more of fibre containing foods, fruits (2-3 per day), vegetables (3-4 portions per day) including green leafy ones, have whole grains like whole wheat, brown rice, oats, corn, quinoa instead of refined ones, beans, lentils, pulses - avoid deep fried, processed & junk foods, also foods containing saturated & trans fats - have heart healthy fats as in seafood, olive, canola & sunflower oil for cooking, nuts such as walnuts, almonds, cashews, avocados & seeds such as flax & sesame - also have soya products, reduce sugar & carbohydrates in diet & also bakery products - your food plate should roughly consist of, half with vegetables & a fruit, one quarter with whole grains & the other quarter with a protein & a healthy fat containing food - for your exact dietary requirement as per your constitution, dietary habits & activity level consult a dietician on forum.

It’s better to avoid traveling to kedarnath temple but it’s better to contact his cardiologist for a confirmed opinion after clinical examination.

Please note the following for your condition: • Avoid big meals late in the evening. You need three to four hours to digest a big meal. • Spicy or sugary food, even at suppertime, is usually a bad idea. Spices can irritate your stomach, and when it tosses and turns, so will you. Having a lot of sugary food—especially chocolate, which contains caffeine—can make you feel jumpy. • Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak.

High BP, High sugar, High cholesterol can present with number of symptoms and sometimes remains unidentified until you fall sick. It's too difficult to mention all the symptoms but the symptoms you mentioned can be of them. The only way to diagnose them properly is to get properly examined and investigated. Like Blood pressure check up, Blood Sugar and urine sugar Fasting and Post prandial and Lipid profile. Even if they come negative you cannot exclude them as you are having some symptoms. And my advise is to start preventive homeopathic medicine by proper consultation. Till then you can start taking Tonicard Homeopathic preparation by SBL.

World heart day advice to make your heart healthy
World heart day advice from Dr. Deepa Sharma
1) maintain your healthy weight. If overweight then reduce your weight
2) control cholesterol - avoid fatty. Fried foods, junk food, cold drink.
Reduce trans fat, sugar, salt
3) manage blood pressure in range
4) do regular exercise, walk instead of driving always choose stairs instead of using elevators.
5) stop smoking
6) maintain blood sugar
7) eat healthy and nutrition diet rich in fruits and vegetables
8) try to reduce the portion size of unhealthy food and increase the size of healthy food.
9) eat fibre rich grains
10) if you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. This means an average of one to two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. (a drink is one 12 oz. Beer, 4 oz. Of wine, 1.5 oz. Of 80-proof spirits, or 1 oz. Of 100-proof spirits.)
Drinking more alcohol increases such dangers as alcoholism, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide and accidents.
