Avoid further tests. Your TMT is better than normal, ST segment abnormalities are common and don't mean too much.

I am 36 years old. My blood pressure is 150/95 after taking medicine nebycare 5. Bp not decreasing. What I should do?...
1. Regular physical activity Try to do some moderate-intensity activity every day and build up to at least 150 minutes per week, in bouts of 10 minutes or more. 2. Keep to a healthy weight For some people, losing weight is all they need to do to get their blood pressure down to a normal level 3. Eat a healthy balanced diet 4. Cut down on salt Don’t cook with salt or add any to your food at the table, and cut down on processed foods, which contain a lot of salt. 5. Don't drink too much 6. Take your medicines as prescribed Most people will need to take more than one type of medicine to control their blood pressure. Don’t stop taking your medication without consulting with your GP first. Supportive or additional medication (alternative therapies). For medication consult online in private.

Hypertension is al lifestyle diseases which require lifestyle solution and not a chemical cocktail of medicines. It just involves dietary changes and lifestyle changes Cut down animal protein Eat plant based High fiber diet Salt reduction. Do not eat any processed food .Cook your own food. Reduce stress by meditation and yoga exercise daily- for more specific advise on how to reverse bp without medicines naturally take a consult what you require is treatment of the root cause and not the symptoms. There are several reversible causes of bp whch can reverse your disease without medicines. Amlopress L can be used instead of your regular medicine because they have the same ingredients. Send a feedback, if needed take a consult through Lybrate.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is good to know that HbA1c% is down to 5.8. Please strive to keep it in that range. All the BP readings mentioned are within the normal range. There is no reason to worry about. The newer guidelines are more specifically for patients with any heart related risks. Even today we treat patients only when BP goes beyond 140 mm Hg systolic and 90 mm Hg diastolic. Thanks.

It is not that usual... but sometimes it happens... that you feel the pulsation in the distant parts... I don't think it is an issue.... If you don't have any symptoms other than that then don't worry...

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your father can take cod liver oil in the recommended doses but should be careful if he is taking antihypertensive medicine as cod liver oil reduces the blood pressure - take advise of the treating physician before starting any new medicine or supplement.

7 Signs You Are Having A Stroke!

MBBS, MD (Gen. Medicine), DM (Cardiology)
Cardiologist, Delhi
7 Signs You Are Having A Stroke!

Stroke is a condition known to all for its deadly impact. Even if the affected person survives, the after-effects can be immensely debilitating right from affecting movement to speech. Being informed, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Here are the common signs of stroke that you should be aware of:

  1. Numbing of arms and legs: Many people wake up and find that their arms and legs are numb and they tend to assume that it is due to compression of the nerve. But the actual reality is that the flow of blood through the arteries running up to the spine is reduced, and it has led to weakness or numbness on either side of the body.
  2. Double vision and blurriness: Vision problems can also be a strong indicator of stroke even though most people think it is due to long hours of work or aging. When you see two images of the same object, it doesn’t have to mean that you are reading too much. It could mean that the blood vessel in charge of supplying oxygen to the eyes has been disrupted or blocked.
  3. Slurred speech: Some medicines, particular painkillers can cause speech issues. But this is not the case always; if it is not a side effect that you typically experience after taking painkillers, you should consult a healthcare expert without any delay. 
  4. Confusion and trouble over thinking and articulating: When you find yourself in a state where you cannot recall the right word to explain the right thing, you may rest assured that it is an issue stemming from the stroke. If you find yourself to struggle thinking or finding a word very commonly, then you are heading for big trouble.
  5. Balance problems: Some people have balance issues, and they think it is due to the dose of alcohol, but experts say it is crucial to identify whether this assumption is correct. You will never have delayed balance problems, and therefore, you cannot blame a drink that you had last day. So, if you have balance issues without any identifiable reason, it is advisable to call a doctor.
  6. A headache that becomes intolerable at times: Headaches can be a sign of a migraine but in case you are not prone to this ailment, then the debilitating headache could indicate a stroke. Migraine headaches can also mean stroke since both of them have similar signs and symptoms.
  7. Fatigue that won’t let you stay upright: If you are not doing any physically strenuous job but still feel tired most of the time, it could be a warning sign of stroke. If it continues for over a week, it is recommended that you consult an expert immediately.

Equipped with this knowledge, stay aware and pay attention to the indications your body gives to take care of yourself. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.
