I am a boy of age 17. My BP level is 160/100 mm/hg. I have checked all other test such as lipid prescribed by doctor. Since I am young, doctor asked me to do regular exercise. In fact I am doing it. Due to BP I didn't find any change in my body. I am normal. Yet I ll get tensed easily. In fact my parents are normal in their BP level. Father: 130/90 Mom: 120/90 Though I can't understand what may be the reason for increase in BP Upto this level? Another shortcoming is 'I ll get sweated easily even I am sitting under fan So please give me a solution.

Your blood pressure is really high for a 17 year old! you need to be evaluated by an endocrinologist to rule out any underlying hormonal cause of hypertension like primary hyperaldosteronism and pheochromocytoma. High blood pressure is a dangerous condition to have and has an adverse effect on heart kidney and brain function. Take care.

Dear lybrate user you have taken a commendable stood by quitting smoking. Don't ever touch cigarettes again. For the head pain try to keep yourself hydrated by taking a lot of fluids. You can also take any painkiller as and when required for the time being but if this headache tendency continues for more than 3 weeks then you need further help.

Sir, I have Heart Disease (Single Vessel Disease - Mid LCX 100% Block) from May 2015. I have treated well and I am continuing the medicine but I didn't control the smoking habit. How can I solve the problem permanently. So please give the best suggestion for me.

Please read a book by Dr. Dean Ornish on, Reversiing the Heart Disease to understand how exactly the nicotine acts to lead to blocked vessels. You have to stop smoking immediately. If it is really so difficult you may need to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through a 6 month or less program to get you out of this very unhealthy habit. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Mri is cotraindicated in case of any appliance which creates elctro magnetic field, like pacemaker pt. But stent is not created electro magnetic field. It is not required for your case, unnecessary you are doing mri. Ct scan will be sufficent to diagnose your disease.

400 ml of green tea is a lot. I do not know about the side effects of it but I suggest 200 ml twice a day is okay. If you do find any abnormal chest discomfort or heart beats please consult your physician also.

Continue medicines, reasons for blockages in heart or brain or in rest of the body are same and it's called plaque, starts with inflammation within blood vessels due to wrong eating habits. Non veg food can be taken in little amounts but only if steamed or grilled, no animal fats soaking in it, but masala like black pepper and chat masala are okay. Reduce her salt despite bp under control. Take lemon juice and honey added to it on empty stomach every morning. Besides reducing weight it helps to protect heart and blood vessels. Give her lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of the supplements for proteins which she likes. Walking is simple exercise that helps you to reduce sugar and lipids and clear blood vessels of blockages. Stay positive. Stay occupied.

Electric shock/biting/burning type of pains is due to stress induced by your body. Do some exercise, go for a walk sleep early. Still if it don't help then underlying cause has to be identified and for that we need a detailed h/o of your complaints. You can ping me on my personal window so that I can help you.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
