Very heavy knee pains and unable to sit
BP is normal but some times high
Sugar levels are high and taking tablets.
Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi welcome, Blockage in all three arteries with reduced heart function& hhistory of cardiac arrest is a serious thing. He will definitely need a by pass surgery (CABG). The risk of the surgery will be higher than a normal patient with blockage in all three arteries. Diabetes control is definitely a very important thing. About medication, dose of cardace could be increased as per bp. Another very important medication (beta blocker) should be added to the treatment. Both the cardace & beta blocker are very very important for such patients. I could be of more help if you could send me the echo & Angio report. Thanks & take care.

Dear lybrate-user, At age 70, the body recuperation declines, there is muscle mass and bone loss. Injections of calcium may help, but only if her digestion is able to take it and also, if she is consuming adequate fats, vitamins to ensure digestion of these injections. Change her diet to increase fresh vegetables and fruit. Avoid besan, brinjals, rajma etc from her diet that will cause further digestive strain. Give her mineral rich grains like ragi, jowari. Wheat (roti) is also very diffivult to digest. Give butter milk. Regards.

Hypertension - Complications and Treatment

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Hypertension - Complications and Treatment

Hypertension or high blood pressure is very common disease. One is labeled as having hypertension when the patient's BP is more than 140/90.

Hypertension is of generally 2 types.

  1. Essential hypertension: No particular reason is found. This is the most common type And usually due to life style habits.
  2. Secondary hypertension: Here the BP goes up because of some other disease And once the main disease is treated the bp also becomes better.

Some causes of secondary hypertension are

  • Kidney diseases
  • Hormonal problems like thyroid disease, cushing's syndrome
  • Certain medications
  • Some rare tumors like adrenal tumors, pheochromocytoma etc.
  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Drug addictions

Complications

Uncontrolled hypertension for long period can cause life threatening diseases like

  • Heart attack.
  • Paralysis due to brain stroke
  • Kidney failure
  • Blindness

Treatment

Treatment consists of two parts.

  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medicines

Lifestyle changes include

  • Low salt diet
  • Eating fresh fruits and salads as at least one third of you diet as these are rich in potassium which helps to maintain low blood pressure.
  • Exercise daily, such as walking for at least 45 minutes everyday.

Medicine

  • That would depend whether you have essential or secondary hypertension.
  • In essential hypertension, No one medicine is for all. Your doctor will individualize the medicines as per your blood pressure, your blood report results and any Co existing disease like diabetes or kidney problem etc.

Goal of treatment

  • Is to keep your blood pressure below 130/80 at all times And to prevent complications.
  • Remember hypertension is deadly. However it can be easily managed. Lifestyle changes And medications complement each other. They do not substitute each other.
  • With proper individualization of lifestyle changes And medications you can enjoy a normal and healthy life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.
