Dear lybrate-user, you should start her diabetic and hypertensive medicines in consultation with physician. The long term consequence of uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension is too costly to take a risk of managing them with diet alone. Lifestyle measures such as diet, exercise and weight reduction are no doubt benifitial but they are not that effective compred to medicine. At best they are additive to medicines. Thank you.

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure. Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock. Certain medicines and substances can lead to low blood pressure, including:     * Alcohol     * Anti-anxiety medicines     * Certain antidepressants     * Diuretics     * Heart medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure and coronary heart disease     * Medicines used for surgery     * Painkillers Other causes of low blood pressure include:     * Nerve damage from diabetes     * Changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias)     * Not drinking enough fluids (dehydration)     * Heart failure You can do a few things to prevent low blood pressure     * Drinking more fluids     * Getting up slowly after sitting or lying down     * Not drinking alcohol     * Not standing for a long time     * Using compression stockings so blood does not collect in the legs Get these test done to find cause of blood pressure problems tests include Thyroid functions, ECG, ECHO.

I presume you have consulted a qualified Cardiologist & if he says that no medicine is required, then follow his instructions. If you have this palpitation once again, then get back to me & we'll get to the root of this problem & solve it.

What are the factors on which high cholesterol deposits depend on? If the person is lean and engages himself in walk and exercises, can it still exist?

Hi, yes if a person is lean, do regular exercise still chances of high cholesterol deposit still exist as genes play major role in every thing, if fat metabolism is not good due to defective gene then, it can definitely lead to cholesterol deposit. Other factor such as smoking, drinking also encourage high cholesterol levels.

Hello. High blood cholesterol is treated with lifestyle changes and medicines. There are few risk factors: Cigarette smoking High blood pressure (140/90 mmHg or higher), or you’re on medicine to treat high blood pressure Low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (less than 40 mg/dL) Family history of early heart disease (heart disease in father or brother before age 55; heart disease in mother or sister before age 65) Age (men 45 years or older; women 55 years or older) Food to be avoided: -Saturated fat which is found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods. -You also should try to limit the amount of sodium (salt) that you eat. -Try to limit drinks with alcohol. Too much alcohol will raise your blood pressure and triglyceride level. Food to be taken: -Whole-grain cereals such as oatmeal and oat bran -Fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, pears, and prunes -Legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, chick peas, black-eyed peas, and lima beans -A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can increase important cholesterol-lowering compounds in your diet. -A healthy diet also includes some types of fish, such as salmon, tuna (canned or fresh), and mackerel. These fish are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids may help protect the heart from blood clots and inflammation and reduce the risk of heart attack. Try to have about two fish meals every week. If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can help lower LDL cholesterol. Routine physical activity can lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and raise your HDL cholesterol level. Medication: Cholesterinum 30/ thrice daily for 4 weeks.

I am having total cholesterol is 175, triglyceride is 362 and vldl is 71. I have concerned doctor and prescribed me to take feno-tg once a night to lower the trygleride and vldl and alternatively am doing exercise every day 30 minutes. I have completely stopped non veg food and oil food and smoking. Weather I can continue same tab for a month for lower the triglycerides and vldl or exercise is more sufficient? If I take tab is there any side effect or needs to continue full time when cholesterol raises? Is there any risk if total cholesterol is desirable and triglycerides and vldl level is high?

Dear lybrateuser, - You have to carry on taking the tablet along with exercise & dietary changes - triglyceride & vldl level has to be monitored & then consult your treating doctor whether to change the dose or medication as per the progress - a high level of triglyceride & vldl can cause atherosclerosis ( deposition of fats in the blood vessel lining & heart) & blockage of blood supply to the vital organs like heart & brain - have a well balanced diet with more of fibre containing foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains instead of refined ones, protein foods such as eggs, milk & milk products, beans, lentils, soy products, tofu, nuts.
