If your total cholesterol is 163 then it's normal. If that's your ldl cholesterol then it's high. If you don't have any other risk factors then you can reduce by diet and exercise. No need for any medication at this point.

There is no evidence that one oil is better than the other in preventing heart disease. More than type of oil, limiting the amount of oil is beneficial. Apart from that healthy food, exercise, avoiding smoking, good sleep, relaxation all these complement each other in preventing heart disease.

Exams are a part of education system,everyone has to go through it. But stress not only decrease your performence but make you unhealthy too. Feeling of chest heaviness is an example of it.In your age gp. it is acommon problem. But you need not to worry, every problem has a solution. You can consult some councellar with the help of your parents,teacher or friends. Always share your problem with them.Take relaxing break during studies,Do meditation regularly. it is the best stress buster.Take care. Good luck.

My BP about 140 /90 since 3 months what should I do? I didn't take any medicines till now.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user.I guess your weight is more than expected .try to reduce weight. Do regular walking. Start salt limiting diet. Avoid oily spicy food. Reduce Stress factor if you have any .if possible get your lipid profile and ECG done .soon you'll feel difference in your bp readings. If you find something in your reports you can take homeopathic medicines after detail case takings for many things like Cholesterol disturbances, Obesity, weight Gain, Stress Factor and many issues .If Bp is Excedding above 140/90 you will need to start antihypertensive medicines after consulting Cardiologist later on. Get well Soon .Feel Good .I'd be happy to know your Progress .Good Day.

Mr Manoj, Hypertension and diabetes usually are seen together in many persons. Apart from taking appropriate medication, it essential to adapt a modified lifestyle, which means having a balanced and restricted diet, exercising regularly for more than 1 hour a day, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, alcohol and smoking. In case of hypertension salt intake also has to be low(2.3 g/day). From the data it is not clear what is level of blood pressure, which drugs are being taken for treating diabetes and current fasting and PP sugar leves and HbA1c%. Plus also inform you are exercising regularly, as your BMI is 26.19 kgs, which is high. Plus inform about dietary pattern. It will be good if you come in a private conversation with these details, where I will be able to give specific suggestions.

Mr. Lybrate-user, being a vegetarian is by ones own choice. Vegetarian diet also does provide all the necessary nutrients and proteins, when proper food selection is made. Whole grain foods, multiple grains usage, use of pulses in good quantity, use of soy beans and peanuts, chanas, etc. Does give good proteins. Milk and dahi, gives a good variety of proteins. Green leafy vegetables, multicloured vegetables, fruits and berries, dry fruits offer almost all needed nutrients. Vegetarian diet is good, advantageous but if you want to shift to other foods, there is no barrier. It always by choice. Thanks.
