My blood pressure is always 130/90. It is normal or not. Morning time its 120/80 and after meal its 130/90. Is it normal or want to go to the doctor?

Hi Ideal blood pressure for your age is 120/80 mmHg. 120 is systolic blood pressure .which depends mainly on cardiac contraction force and heart rate. 80 is diastolic pressure. And it represents the resistance of blood vessels. Systolic pressure is also increased in anxiety and tension state. And it also normalises with some relaxation techniques. But increase in diastolic pressure is not desirable at all. So if your blood pressure is 130/90 for more than 3 occassions in a month. Then you need to modify your lifestyle. Such as doing Yoga. Pranayam.brisk walking for 30 mnts everyday. Cut off carbohydrate and lipid level in your diet. Do all this for 3 months. If tjen also BP is same .then go for antihypertensive medication.

Detailed assessment is needed. Like the reason behind smoking, number of cigarettes and comorbid medical condition. Next you should be assessed for withdrawal from smoking and for reducing further craving. Thre are medications to reduce nicotine craving too. If you consult a psychiatrist they will be able to help you. All the best.

Most important thing for you is to decrease your body weight. If body weight is not decreasing by diet and exercise, then you have to consult endocrinologist for your body weight. Regarding your bp, you have to first document that you are having high bp. For that you have to measure your bp by a qualified doctor. Till then decrease your salt intake by half and decrease your body weight.

Coronary artery bypass is done to treat coronary artery disease when the main vessels of heart got blocked. One way to treat the blocked or narrowed arteries is to bypass the blocked portion of the coronary artery with a piece of a healthy blood vessel from elsewhere in your body. Blood vessels, or grafts, may be a pieces of a vein from your leg or in your chest, artery from wrist can also be used.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. If both the ecgs are clear, your pain is due to anxiety disorder. I suggest counselling and cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

Your b appears to be normal because of medication. If you will stop the medication, chances are that you b might get increased. Therefore you must consult doctor.

Have a focussed mind. This happens with personality of a wandering mind & a racing heart. Computers, reading and writing on any subject, end of the day, jot down your activities of the day on paper every day in the evening. Get a degree which will give you a vocation or a productive job. Be a freelancer for sometime & I feel teaching kids of class 5 onwards can be rewarding provided mothers are equally focussed.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.
