What's critical for your health and longevity.

What's critical for your health and longevity.
When a person says they're too busy to exercise, it tells me other things are crowding out what's important in life:

They don't spend time with family and friends;
Don't exercise enough; don't eat right;
Don't sleep properly.

All these things reduce stress in your life, and that is critical to your health and longevity.

Your BP is normal. You can stop BP medicine for sometime and monitor your BP. If BP is raised you have to continue medicine throughout but can reduce the dose after consulting doctor.

Increase in heart beat & high BP at 19. Get yourself checked but I can reassure you , it can be due to excess stress and you may need only stress relaxation as a therapy, one must not live with doubts. Get tested for ECG, ECho, Halter & blood sugar ,lipid profile & thyroid profile. Get back here with the reports.

Hi Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. I read your query, by the information I have in hand my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least one week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac issues 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH Calcium and vitamin deficiency can be dealt with any simple supplements as for OIL I shall suggest refined rice bran oil especially because its heat stable so have less changes of causes health problems Get back to me with a detailed history and old / new records for a better individualized advice.

For your age, it would be best if you get a TMT done to rule out any cardiac risk. But do understand that a negative TMT does not give 100% gaurantee that there are no significant blockages, the only 100% surety is via an angiography.

Çhest pain in young age is commonly due to costochondritis (inflammation of rib and sternal junction). This condition will respond to complete over the counter available analgesics like Ibuprofen. Since details of your symptoms are not given, it's difficult to diagnose. You should get ECG and Chest X Ray done along with blood pressure check to rule out heart attack and lung infection. Consult again for further queries.
