What is your cholesterol level? If it is less than 300, Cholesterol is rarely a problem, just a number without much significance. You will feel better when you stop trying to control it, and will have much better health. Acidity, too will improve. Reduce alcohol sugar jaggery and starchy foods in diet. Balanced diet is healthier than restricted diet. More dairy products, poultry, vegetables, nuts, foods cooked in traditional style. The secret to good health is fine food, not the restricted diet advised now. Best wishes.

My mother in law aging 73 years has bp and diabetes since very long and has been taking medicine regularly for the same. Last week, she started feeling weak and cramps in legs. 8 days ago, she consulted a physician for the same, e checked the bp and it was 238/110. The doctor has given lasix inj immediately and advised to take lots of fluids and there will be frequent urination after the injection. Within 1.5 hrs of taking that injection she started vomiting. It continued for a day and she became very weak though we have been giving her electoral regularly. Her bp was fluctuating from 190 to 220 for 2 days and she collapsed on 3rd day having seizures. We have taken her to the hospital immediately and the next day it was diagnosed as PRES. Sodium levels were dropped to 97. So the have given sodium for 2 days. She is in ICU now, are the vitals are showing good but still she did not get consciousness. She is able to open her eyes from last 2 days but not looking straight at us neither recognizing or responding to anyone. Doctors are saying it will take time to recover but till now there are no signs of improvement what should we do? What is the general recovery time for this case. What are the improvements we can expect and the timelines? what are the other impacts post recovery? please advise, Thanks a lot!

Your husband should these simple measures to reduce cholesterol and blood sugar like exercise for atleast 1 hr a day and more if obese avoid junk and oily foods eat healthy foods like green leafy vegetables and fruits salt should be restricted to 2 to 3 gms per day. Periodically check your blood pressure and lipid profile and take drugs in consultation with local physician.

When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing yoursalt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such asbread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to muscular or other soft tissue disorder - do hot fomentation of the affected area - apply pain relief gel three times a day lightly on the area - if not much relief then consult a physical therapist for exercise therapy.

Mr. lybrate-user High Blood pressure can be controlled not only by medications but also by regular exercises, healthy diet. Ask for help from your doctor regarding this. Thyroid problem needs evaluation and some patients may need life long therapy. Cholesterol problem may be caused by Thyroid illness. If you control Thyroid illness your mother may need not to take cholesterol medication. Again exercise and proper diet helps in controlling cholesterol issues.

Being in Love Will Lead You to a Healthy Heart and Life

Being in Love Will Lead You to a Healthy Heart and Life

Loving relationships are known to improve more than just your mood, it improve your looks and your health. Researchers believe that it might just be the best medicine for most people, as it helps keep your heart healthy, beat cancer and recover faster, boosts athletic performance and leads to spiritual and emotional growth.

Mentioned below are a few of the ways, in which love may lead to a healthy heart and life:

  1. Better Heart Health: Research has shown that women in healthy and loving marriages are less prone to contracting cardiovascular diseases, in contrary to those in stressful marriages. It has also been discovered that love reduces the likelihood of chest pains and suffering from angina despite having high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes in men.
  2. Lengthens Your Life: The National Longitudinal Mortality Study studied a million subjects and concluded that couples in a loving marriage tend to live longer and have lowered risk of getting heart attacks, pneumonia, cancer and cirrhosis of the liver. Their chances of committing suicide are also reduced by almost half.
  3. Faster Cancer Recovery: After extensive research, University of Iowa proved that patients of ovarian cancer, who were in loving relationships, had stronger WBCs i.e. White Blood Cells that kill cancerous cells, as compared to those in unhealthy relationships. They also concluded that patients in love recover quickly or completely eliminate cancer. 
  4. Lowers Blood Pressure: Studies show that when couples are together, their blood pressure is significantly lowered. This research even proved that spending time with loving and supportive friends results in lower systolic numbers. 
  5. Keeps You Slim: Being in love is a much healthier and better option than juice cleanse, when it comes to losing that extra weight. People in loving relationships produce more adrenaline i.e. an appetite suppressant and are more likely to hit the gym and make healthier lifestyle choices to look their best. Apart from that, sex is one of the best ways to lose calories and reduce your weight.
