The person has to take medications life long... The increased triglyceride is because of various factors like genetics, lifestyle, stress etc... To keep it in check usual diet restrictions, exercise etc are few things to consider... There are homoeopathic medicines which also can improve the condition...

I am male 76 years old. In 1983 Allopathic doctors told me that I am hypertensive and I must be on medicines. Whereas I had no problem. I told them since I do mental work may be this is normal to my body. But they were going by the book. Since then they put me on medicines, not giving much relief but giving me side effects of medicines. On my own I tried to keep myself fit by natural way. Now I want to get rid of Allopathic medicines. Presently my Bp when I get up in the morning remains in the morning remains around 180/ 10. After get ready by 5.30 am it comes down to around 166/ 96. And after approx 30 mts walk and 15 mts light yog and pranayam, it further comes down to around 130/ 76. I take rest during day for sometime. By evening it is again 175/ 96. I take their medicine at around 10 am. Please get me a remedy where I can completely get rid of those harmful medicines.

Hello, you can opt Homoeopathic remedies for the same problem . These medicines work efficiently without causing any side effects to the patients. Take Rauvolfia 1x, 2 tabs daily morning empty stomach. Take Essentia Aurea, 20 drops with water twice daily. Drink plenty of liquids and cut down your fat, salt and sugar intake. Home remedies to Control high BP:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium.So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart.If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day. 3.Take a sound sleep and try to avoid anger.

I am 56 having high b. P. diabetes taking pills every day but having urine problem in the night which hampers my sweet sleep, pl suggest remedy.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, when diabetes is not in control, blood glucose level goes up. If glucose level goes over 180 mg/100 ml, then it appears in the urine. If still higher level is there in the blood then more glucose is filtered in to urine. When glucose is present in the bladder, it draws more water through omosis, this fills the urinary bladder more often. This causes more urge to urinate at nkigt. Hence strict blood sugar control is the only option in reducing urination at night. Plus uncotrolled diabetes also causes more thirst and water intake increases, it also contributes.

I am type 2 diabetic from last 5 years, I am vegetarian using Duphil 2/500 tab. Daily my sugar levels remain near 200 (+ - 15) after all precautions, tell me how to maintain normal levels. I regularly suffer from pain and cramps in my legs, and unstable Bp.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

My husband is detected with high bp. Initial reading was at 150/90 when he was put under medication of Nexovas 10 mg. He is just 33 years of age and does regular strength and cardio exercise. He wanted to reduce his BP with proper diet and exercise so he stopped taking tablet after 1 week and increased his exercise and switched to low sodium diet. His BP came down to 120. After 7-10 days he got fever and dizziness so went to general physician who mentioned his bp has gone upto 150. He was asked to do lipid profile test and detected with high LDI cholesterol of 140.6. The general physician put him under HH Rosu 10 mg to reduce LDI. Since he has consulted another doctor earlier for BP he went back to him to take his opinion on medication and show him lipid test. He asked to stop HH ROSU and put him under 80 mg Azilsartan Medoxomil 80 mg. We are totally confused what is good for him and what he should continue. We want his bp to control without any side effect of high dose medication. Suggest.

Hi, Our targets for BP should be <140/90 most of the time. You can try life style modification but if your BP remains higher than targets, Then we should use medicines, which should be on regular basis. Initially we can use one medicine if not controlled by one drug, we can add other drug or increase the dose of 1st one. For LDL of 140, we can wait and try to control it with lifestyle modifications without medicines. But If LDL is associated with other disease like Diabetes or Coronary Artery Disease we should use medicines.

General Physician,
1. For your age it is peripheral neuritis - you can have b 12 (methylcobalamine) injections weekly twice 2. Take calcium - vit d tablets. 3. Check your haemoglobin - if low take iron tonics. Take these medications for three months. If needed consult a neurologist.

While most qualities given are as expected, what is surprising that cholesterol is HIGHER in cow milk than buffalo milk. Could you please clarify, whether it is HDL or LDL which is higher?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hi, thank you for your query. Foods do not contain hdl or ldl. It's the former in which the fats are converted in the body. Cow's milk has saturated fats, but it's short chain and medium chained fatty acids that are easy to digest and are not converted to unhealthy fats in the body. Also omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids are in the right proportion. This makes cow's milk a good option even though it has saturated fats, of course as long as it's not adulterated.
