Smoking is one of the risk factors, others in heart patient is obesity, hypertension, diabetes. Lifestyle modification, stress management, diets, etc. If you stop smoking for one month chances of getting heart attacks is reduced by 50%, and for one year you stop smoking than chances of getting heart attacks is same as non smoker. Councelling for stress management.

if your taking breathing by mouth it means you have sinusitis. go for x ray PNS and consult to ENT doctor or can use nasal spray otrivin. High 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hello, take Sygyzium 1X (for diabetes ) , 2 tabs twice dailt before meals , morning and night. 1. take Karela jamun ras from SWADESHI Brand. 2. Powdered cinnamon has the ability to lower blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin activity. It contains bioactive components that can help prevent and fight diabetes. 3. Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Drink the water along with the seeds in the morning on an empty stomach. Follow this remedy without fail for a few months to bring down your glucose level. Another option is to eat two tablespoons of powdered fenugreek seeds daily with milk. **cut down your sugar and salt intake.**

You can get a Renal Doppler, kidney function test, lipid profile and get evaluated for some secondary causes of hypertension. If they are normal. Do not bother yourself about why it has happened just continue medicine and keep BP in check.
