Dear you need to completely restrict your protein intake as your urea creatinine levels are high, you should consume leached vegetables by boiling and straining, take all gourds for your veg quotient, include a renal supplement, fluid intake should equal your 24 hour urine output.

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

May be you are over doing it -both exercise and wrong food as supplements. Get proper guidance from an educated trainer. For heart get only basic tests done-ecg, echo, stress test, blood tests for sugar and total lipids. Get bp checked also. Get back here with reports & remember no steroids for bodybuilding.

There is no way you can nullify the harmful effects of smoking without giving it up. You can try nicotine gums and patches if you wish to abstain. Smoking for 2 months, generally does not predispose to cancer, but it is never too soon, to develop cancer. It generally does not sound like cancer yet, but I would still advise to quit smoking. Its uncool.

Low blood pressure is no criteria.

See since your one tube is blocked and the other is partially blocked. get a laproscopy test done to find out whether your tube can be opened or not. If its not opened then IVF is the only best way for you to conceive.

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.

Hello sir, I am 59 year old male have undergone angioplasty twice once in 2008 n the other one month back. Is there any medicine in Ayurveda which can clear the blocks, as the old 2008 one is now blocked by 50%

Hello sir, I am  59 year old male have undergone angioplasty twice once in 2008 n the other one month back. Is there ...
50% block may not be corrected but you can give a chance collateral blood vesselsto open up,so far these lying in heart but doing nothing and there are plenty of collateral blood vessels. it is equated to nature doing a bypass surgery giving its own vessels to circulate more blood to the heart by its own vessels instead of grafted vessels. some people do claim about opening up of the blocked vessels by alternate therapies but there are no proofs, no studies carried so far. if sugar levels are controlled you can have all of these or any of these lemon juice plus spoon of honey with warm water on empty stomach every morning & rest of the day. apple cider vinegar diluted with water/juice. pomegranade fruit or juice or dry seeds boiled in water ,a concoction made and a cup taken every day. exercise like walkkng does open up vessels of entire body. massage with machine or with oil does improve blood circulation including heart. better is blood circulation ,more vessels lying low get a chance to open up. good luck.
