Only way to improve your hdl (good cholesterol) is by doing regular exercise & by following a stict low salt/fat diet. Avoid spicy, greasy, heavily salted preserved food. Tab niacin, antioxidants, grape seed extracts & resveratrol, omega 3 fatty acids have some value in increasing good cholesterol.

u are hypertensive. when the pressures are very high there are chances of either a bleeding of a blood vessel or a clot in the brain that can cause that kind of numbness and weakness that happened at that time. that should have been taken seriouslt and a immediate ct scan of d brai should have been done. if it is not done u should get it done at the earliest. medication have to b started accordingly

You have to reevaluate your cardiac status. But if your pain is due to hyperacidity you can try omez-d for 1 week or two and inform me, privately. Are you on medicines and which are the medicines you take?

I have high blood pressure, how can I get remedy from the high blood pressure at my age of 29?
Hello, Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Duolin is a reliver drug and should not be taken daily. Budecort 200 is very less dose and need addition of laba for good effect. Better get stepped up dose for asthma after consulting a resp. Phy. Get echo done to r/o col pulmonale which may be a cause for oedema. Nebicard though a selective drug and said to be not aggevating asthma, but better to avoid it or reduce its dose.

Hello lybrate-user, the symptoms you have described characteristically fits into gerd, which stands for gastroeaophageal reflux disease. Here the stomach acid when you lie flat or after heavy meals reflux back into the food pipe which may cause nausea, burping, breathlessness, feeling of acidic taste in the throat. This deserves a detailed discussion with your doctor. However some important measured you can take is. 1) avoid spicy, oily preserved food. No chocolates, aerated drinks, tea, coffee 2) avoid heavy meals and sleeping immediately after meals at least for one and half hours 3) raise head end of your bed by a already 10-12 inch s. Try using two pillows to sleep 4) take a medicine like sompraz d 40 mg 15 mins before breakfast for 2 weeks at least. Let me know how you feel in 2- 3 days after starting medication and we may evaluate it furthur as I believe that the cause of your breathing issue is because of the stomach.

If low HDL is their then is it harmful? My HDL is 37. So what wll happen to my body. My L DL is 119.

If low HDL is their then is it harmful? My HDL is 37. So what wll happen to my body. My L DL is 119.
Hello lybrate user hdl is protective lipoprotein for cardiovascular diseases. Meaning by which having a good hdl level is protective in itself but the reverse is not true. Many people have this misconception that having a low hdl level will harm them in some way. But having a low hdl level means that you have less protection it doesn't mean that you are at risk. Not having protection versus being at risk are two very opposite things. As you pointed out that your ldl level is 119. The optimum level for anybody is less than 100 and in case of diabetics the level should be less than 70. Having a high ldl level is indeed indicative of risk. Ldl is the bad cholesterol, it needs to be curbed. For this purpose either you can make diet adjustments or you can take medicine.

This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat.

Your chronic problems are under control and doctor has suggested some eye drops for cataract which is developing and you do not want to get operated as you have no difficulty in seeing. Why do you worry about some cataract which is just developing but not giving you any visual problems? do get your eyes examined frequently for assessment of dm & bp.
