Chest pain can be a symptom of anxiety itself. You need to tell your age and other risk of heart disease like diabetes, high blood pressure etc. If you are above 40 years age then you should get a ECG done to rule out angina I.e. Heart disease.

Food that increases cholestrol level is strictly prohibited in heart patients. If you can keep a check on your cholestrol level by good workout and strict diet, then you may have such foods occasionlly. But still I would advice you to avoid such foods.

Which kind of food and daily life will be better for controlled blood pressure and better for kidneys also.

Hi, as you have kidney infection, I hope that you are already in touch with a nephrologist and that your kidney health is being monitored by him/ her regularly. First and foremost, the kidney infection has to be arrested before any further complications arise. Your high bp is most probably because of the underlying issue with your kidneys and/ or can be attributed to dietary/ lifestyle issues including stress at work/ home. Telma 20, as I understand, helps control blood pressure. However, it would not cure the underlying cause by itself. While you continue being on telma 20 mg medication as already advised by your doc, simultaneously, you will have to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, pickles, tea, coffee, sweets including sweetened carbonated drinks & artificially sweetened juices, oily, spicy, greasy and fatty foods. Ensure that you have a balanced diet along with fresh fruits/ vegetables like watermelon, apple, cranberries, oranges, ripe papaya, cucumber, leafy greens etc which are especially beneficial for people with high bp and also they ameliorate kidney infection. Bananas and jack fruit are best avoided. Raw cheese, yogurt and fresh buttermilk (with no added salt or spices) also help promote kidney health and fight infections. Walnut and fishes provide omega-3s that help reduce inflammation too. Similarly, garlic & amla too help reduce bp. Ensure to streamline your lifestyle as well, with adequate room for exercise, relaxation and de-stressing. Yoga, pranayam & meditation too help relax deeply and de-stress. Ensure that you get at least 8 hours of restful sleep daily. See how you can streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps.

Healthy Heart - 5 Must-do Lifestyle Changes For It!

Healthy Heart - 5 Must-do Lifestyle Changes For It!

Lifestyle is one of the best defences against heart disease. All you need to do to maintain good heart health is to just make simple but significant changes to your lifestyle. By doing so, you end up minimising the risk factors associated with heart disease such as coronary artery disease.

The lifestyle changes that you must make for a healthy heart are:

1. Be physically active - Research by Harvard University shows that watching television for 2 hours a day can increase your chances of developing heart disease by 15%. But if you exercise or indulge in some kind of physical activity for about 30 minutes every day, you can significantly improve the health of your heart as any kind of physical activity improves your blood circulation as well as blood pressure.

2. Maintain a healthy body weight - Having a low body weight or a high one can also put you at risk of getting heart disease. For a good heart health, you need to protect it from fatigue and damage. By keeping your weight at an optimum level, your blood circulation, as well as body fluids, end up working efficiently, protecting your heart from unnecessary strain.

3. Have a balanced diet - Foods that are low in calories but high in fibre and nutrients are what your heart needs to stay healthy. A very common cause of heart disease is the consumption of high cholesterol foods like processed meats, desserts, etc. Including seafood like tuna or salmon, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean proteins such as chicken and fish to your diet can reduce your risk of developing heart disease.

4. Manage stress - Stress is another factor that causes you to have poor heart health. To prevent the damaging effect that stress can have on your heart, exercising is what you should do. This is because when you exercise, you release endorphins (brain chemicals that trigger a feel-good feeling in your body), which help in improving your physical and mental makeup. Additionally, exercising has also been found to reduce your chances of dying from a heart attack.

5. Quit smoking - Research reveals that smoking raises your chance of getting heart disease by about 2-4 times. It causes plaque (fatty deposits) to accumulate and harden in your arteries, making your heart to exert itself harder than normal. By kicking the habit, you reduce the strain that is caused to your lungs, thereby to your heart. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

What are the symptom of heart blockage, how one feels that his/her heart is blockage,
Heart blockage means that the blood vessel supplying blood to heart is blocked, it results in pain called angina where heart tissue is not damaged or a heart attack with damage to tissue of heart. One needs treatment for both, depending on numbers of blockages & % age of heart function.

I am a 40 years old male having Hypertension for the past 5 years I was taking Telma 40 morning and amlong 5 mg evening for the last three years a week ago my BP suddenly shot up to 190/100 I was feeling dizzy and my heart was pounding very fast this lasted for half and hour. The next day I got and ECTG and 2D Echo done which was normal but the TMT test showed positive for induced ischemia and my Total cholesterol was 237. On the Doctor's advice I got a coronary angiogram done which showed mild coronary artery disease but no blocks there was slight plaque build up in the arteries the doctor changed my medicine to cilamet xl 10/50 to be taken morning and evening and ecosprin av 20/75 to be taken in afternoon. It has been 5 days now that I am taking this medicine and I notice that after taking cilamet I veel dizzy and lightheaded for about 3 hours my BP also goes down to 95/55. Please let me know if I should reduce the strength of Cilamet or change the tablet.
