Now the incidence is a past. Angioplasty patients are more fit than normal. So don't worry. Nothing special is to be observed. Continue normal life style and diet. Usually make a habit of changing the brand of edible oil.

Here Are The Most Effective Ways To Control High B.P.

MBBS, MD Internal Medicines

Here Are The Most Effective Ways To Control High B.P.
5 Effective Ways To Control High B.P.

High Blood Pressure damages the body slowly but surely. It amplifies the risk of heart problems and even early death. The increased pressure of blood travelling through the arteries puts a strain on the arterial walls damaging the heart, brain and the kidneys. High B.P. can also cause effects like dizziness, inability to sleep properly or cramps in legs. Fortunately, you can avoid the risk of these life threatening complications by reducing your B.P. naturally without medication.

Here are 5 effective ways to do so –

1. Go for Soya: Replace some of the refined Carbohydrates in your diet with foods that are rich in soya such as tofu or you can sometimes use soya bean oil. Soya is rich in proteins and has high content of insoluble fibre and helps to lower systolic blood pressure.

2. Magic of Herbs: Herbs like basil, cinnamon, garlic, cardamom and celery are highly effective in bringing down Blood Pressure and work like magic. They can be added to food to enhance flavour or as supplements.

3. Calcium Packed Yoghurt: Intake of more than 800 mgs of calcium is known to reduce the risk of high blood pressure by nearly 23 percent in contrast to people consuming less than 400 mg. Low fat dairy products especially yoghurt are a great source of calcium and you can enjoy 2-3 helpings daily to lower your Blood Pressure.

4. Dark Magic: Dark Chocolate contains Polyphenols that protect against high BP and other heart and vascular diseases. You can enjoy natural unsweetened cocoa powder or unsweetened dark chocolate and have the pleasure of not only its wonderful taste but also get its blood pressure lowering benefits.

5. Limit your Fructose: Limiting the intake of salt is an important yet common advice for High Blood Pressure but limiting Fructose is equally crucial one. Fructose is a simple sugar found in most fruits and some vegetables. Fruits like mango, banana, apple, lychee etc., fruit juices, table sugar, corn syrup, honey, sugar alcohols are all high in fructose. When digested fructose breaks down into uric acid which elevates BP. So, if you wish to control your BP, you must reduce your intake of foods having high levels of Fructose.

In short, you have to avoid not only excessive salt but sugar too to keep away from hypertension!

For this you can go for following home remedy consumption of onions. Onions are great food for helping cleanse the lungs. Also you can go for one of the most powerful antioxidants is ginger. Adding ginger to your diet can have many positive health benefits. Ginger provides a strong tool for releasing toxins that are in the lungs.

Hi doctor, I had a question about the readings I got on two separate echocardiogram reports which I took in a gap of about 5 months. Every thing in all the reports is normal. However my LVID in the most recent report has increased significantly, I'm not sure if I should be worried about this. Also I must mention that, the most recent echo report with the increased parameters was taken just a little while after a maximal stress test. Where my heart rate reached 190bpm. The stress test was normal. The older reports were taken at rest. I'm a 23 year old boy, normal weight, 5'11' Could the stress test have increased the left ventricular chamber size? I'm quite worried. My doctor says the report is fine, but he did not look at the previous report. Also, all three reports were taken by different lab technicians. Measurement 01/03/16 21/10/15 31/8/2010 Ao (ed) 2.7cm 2.7cm 3.0cm LA (es) 3.3cm 3.5cm 3.2cm LVID (ed) 4.9cm 4.2cm 4.4cm LVID (es) 3.1cm 2.4cm 2.4cm IVS (ed/es) 0.9cm 0.9cm 0.8cm LVPW (ed/es) 0.9cm 0.9cm 0.8cm EF 67% 62% 76%

Function of heart is >70% ,stress test is normal. ECG report is not the Only criteria of a heart disease. It is the most basic test , if it shows no changes about heart disease and person is suffering other tests are done, like in your case and All is Well. Reports are normal , take preventive care about food,exercise,stress and other factors like high BP that lead to heart disease.

For your age and height you seem to be very slim and thin built person. May be your muscle mass is not well developed. Your intercostal muscles and costochondral junctions are sensitive to any type of stretch while working and cause such pains. Do regular exercises, and have a good balanced diet rich in proteins. After a while your pains should disappear.

Lybrate-user, if your blood glucose and bp are normal, then it necessary for you to reduce your weight as the bmi is 29.85 kgs/m2 close to be grade 1 obesity. Weight reduction (ideal weight 67 kgs) will definitely improve gastric symptoms. So do regular exercise and some yogasanas. Thanks.
