Pl stop all alcoholic drinks including beer to save your kidneys as also to control your BP. Take your medicine regularly in consultation with your doctor. Reduce your salt intake also.

As your wife ha now entered her 8th month, high bp is not agood sign for both mother a well a baby------------------your wife's condition is termed in medical language as pre-eclampsia--------------- it is a disorder of pregnancy characterized by high blood pressure and a large amount of protein in the urine in the third trimester of pregnancy and gets worse over time. In severe disease there may be red blood cell breakdown, a low blood platelet count and can effect liver and kidney function, shortness of breath due to fluid in the lungs, or visual disturbances. If left untreated, it may result in seizures and then it will be known as eclampsia--------risk factors for preeclampsia include: obesity, prior hypertension, and diabetes mellitus. It is also more frequent in a woman's first pregnancy and if she is carrying twins. The underlying mechanism involves abnormal formation of blood vessels in the placenta amongst other factors.---------------------- the exact cause of preeclampsia is unknown. It occurs in about 3 to 7% of all pregnancies. But a few of the cause can be ------ 1. Autoimmune disorders----------- 2. Blood vessel problems-------- 3. Your diet--------- 4. Your genes------------- risk factors include:-------------------- 1. First pregnancy------------ 2. Any past history of preeclampsia------------ 3. Multiple pregnancy (twins or more)--------- 4. Family history of preeclampsia------------- 5. Obesity----------------- 6. Over age (above 35) 7. History of diabetes, high blood pressure, or kidney disease symptoms of pre eclampsia------------------. Often, women who have preeclampsia do not feel sick.----------symptoms of preeclampsia can include: 1. Swelling of the hands and face or eyes (edema)---------------- (note: some swelling of the feet and ankles is considered normal during pregnancy.) 2. Sudden weight gain over 1 to 2 days or more than 2 pounds a week---------- symptoms of severe preeclampsia include:----------- 1. Headache that does not go away--------- 2. Trouble breathing--------- 3. Stomach pain on the right side, below the ribs. Pain may also be felt in the right shoulder, and can be confused with heartburn, gallbladder pain, a stomach virus, or kicking by the baby------------- 4. Decreased urine output, not urinating very often---------- 5. Nausea and vomiting (a worrisome sign)------------ 6. Vision changes, including temporary blindness, seeing flashing lights or spots, sensitivity to light, and blurry vision------------------------------- so my advise for you is to immediately visit your gynaecologist before severe pre eclampsia sets in and that can prove fatal for you as well as your baby as a proper physical examination and diagnostic tests are required to confirm the diagnosis of pre eclampsia in your case and a proper monitoring of bp is also required---------------

Good vs. Bad Cholesterol: What's the Difference?

Good vs. Bad Cholesterol: What's the Difference?

For a long time cholesterol in totality was seen as a bad thing for your body although the truth was a little more complicated than that. Cholesterol primarily is divided into two types, one of which can be categorized as bad cholesterol and the other as good cholesterol. Let's have an in-depth look at both the categories.

LDL or Low Density Lipoprotein aka bad cholesterol - Cholesterol is a wax like chemical which is found all over the body and it has important functions to perform. Cholesterol is carried all over the body by Lipoproteins. The low density lipoproteins are denoted as bad cholesterol as they can accumulate on the walls of the blood vessels and cause blockages resulting in many ailments. LDL levels of 190 and above are considered dangerous. 

Some of the risks associated with it are:

  1. Heart disease
  2. Stroke
  3. Atherosclerosis
  4. peripheral artery disease among many others

HDL or High Density Lipoprotein aka good cholesterol - This is a form of cholesterol which is usually desired in higher quantities as it removes LDL from the system by dislodging it from the arteries and then carrying it through the blood stream into the liver. The liver then breaks it down and removes it from the body. Thus, higher number of HDL cholesterol is always desirable. 

Some of the ideal numbers for HDL cholesterol within the body are:

  1. Women - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl or lower
  2. Men - Ideal: 60 mg/dl, dangerous: 50 mg/dl lower

The role of triglycerides

Good and bad cholesterol levels also depend on the levels of triglycerides within the body and not just LDL or HDL cholesterol. Triglycerides are another type of fat which are used to store energy within the body but can also affect your health. It is most associated with atherosclerosis when the levels of triglycerides are high within the body. 

Some habits that contribute to high levels of it are

  1. Lack of physical activity
  2. Obesity or being overweight
  3. Excesses in alcohol consumption
  4. Smoking
  5. Bad diet and others

Thus, the good cholesterol versus bad cholesterol war also includes other factors, most of which can be easily changed by making subtle changes in life style and incorporating healthier habits. This will increase the good cholesterol and the other relevant elements and reduce the bad. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear Lybrateuser, - At your age chest pain could be due to acidity, anxiety or sedentary habit - chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time, have 4-5 meals including snacks rather than three large meals, do not lye down for about an hour after meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - avoid fried, spicy & junk food, also restrict intake of tea, coffee to 1-2 cups per day - have 7-8 glasses of water for sufficient hydration - do regular exercise like, walking, jogging, swimming, playing games, also do yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min daily - take syrup Gelusil, 2 teaspoonful three times a day half an hour after meals - if not much improvement then get an x- ray chest done to know the exact cause & consult a doctor.
