Doctor can I take Telvas 20 mg in place of Telvas 40 mg, does it make any difference as I had a valve replacement surgery happened in 1995. As they prescribed for bp maintenance or for the heart functioning, I don't know exactly. I am using Acitrom 2 mg daily on the basis of INR and prothrombin time test.

Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

This problem is due to not having proper sleep. Avoid oily, spicy foods, take proper diet on proper timing, use coconut oil massage to both soles & head for early sleep take 1 glass of warm water before sleep, take seasonable fruits.

Lipoproteins are the carriers of cholesterol in blood. HDL (high density lipoprotein) is good kind and should be more where as LDL (low-density lipoprotein) is bad kind and should be low. You should only worry about LDL increase, and if it is more, it can be corrected. It is changeable. It increases due to wrong food choices and sedentary lifestyle. Correct that and reduce some weight, east more natural foods. It will come down.

Hi,
I am having high bp @160/100. So any special diet need to be followed to reduce bp.
First of all take a best medicine and with that reduce salt intake. Avoid carbonated drinks, street and out side food. Don't drink coconut water and electral powder for any weakness.
