I have high BP and cholesterol as well. I do regular exercise like 10 min running on treadmill, and then some weight exercise for 40 min. Is it ok to do running and weight exercise for me for 40 to 50 min regularly.

Exercising is very essential in the management of both deranged cholesterol and high BP. But instead of weight exercise, just keep it 40 mins of brisk walking or treadmill and if even after 4-6 weeks of this your levels do not become normal, u will need medicines. Eat healthy, avoid junk and high salty food

Good to know that your reports are normal, alcohol in moderation does not lead to heart disease provided one is careful about diet- no fried food as snacks or overeating other unhealthy foods. At 42, do get liver function tests (alcohol does lead to liver failure), echo test & then a stress test. These are routine tests for heart and are suggested to everyone.

Chest pain can be a symptom of anxiety itself. You need to tell your age and other risk of heart disease like diabetes, high blood pressure etc. If you are above 40 years age then you should get a ECG done to rule out angina I.e. Heart disease.

This is going to sound a little awkward, but my father, 43 years old, regularly visits an astrologer. He said that he would get a heart attack in January. A little background on him: Smoker, Drinker, Loves oily foods etc. For me, this was a wake up call, I have forcefully got him to quit smoking, got him to exercise and i am slowly controlling his diet. Is there anything else I can do? I knew a heart attack would come given his lifestyle, is there any way to prevent it, other than these? Weight: 98 kgs Age: 43 Height: 5 feet 8 inches Stress level: high through the roof.

You are taking good care of your father but he needs to be more supportive to you and more conscious of his health for the sake of his anxious family which will suffer equally if god forbid he gets a heart attack. He needs aggressive lifestyle modifications after being more aware about it- he is doing it for himself, not a favor to anyone. He is overweight. Reduce his weight by diet & exercise, take help from a qualified person, reduce weight @ 5 kgs/ month only. Get his basic tests done- ecg, echo test followed by a stress test, blood test for sugar and total lipids. Quit smoking and exposure to secondary smoking / pollution. Give up alcohol & oily food along with it. Astrologers do not predict a heart attack but lifestyle plus cardiac reports do predict. Get back here with reports for more guidance.

I am 51 years old. Have had a MI 2 years ago with blood clot in Right coronary Artery. Was treated with Agriblock Injection, Statins. I am on Cilamet Xl 25 1-0-0, Telma CT Forte (40/12.5) 0-1-0, Clopivas 75 0-1-0 & Cilacar 10 mg 0-0-1. My Bp varies between 130/90 & 140/90. Is 140/90 BP acceptable. Do I need a more aggressive medication. Earlier I was on Lotensyl AT, Atenolol 50 mg has been reducing my heart rate and hence my medication was changed.

too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.
