Hi. Avoid stress, take few rest during work. Drink coffee once in day time below 11 am and after 4 pm. Take ginseng daily for best stamina and also take minerals/ protein / vitamins diets. Eat salad at lunch with meal. Do yoga also.

I am 45 years old. Recently for 3 years I am having high blood pressure. Blood pressure is in the range 85/130 or some times 90/130. My doctor prescribed me to take concor 2.5 mg tablet. Even after taking this medicine daily recently my blood pressure increased to 110/170. Another doctor has prescribed me to take Neopress Am tablet. After having Neopress Am tablet my blood pressure goes to 75/120 but after having concor 2.5 mg my blood pressure is still in 100/140. Can you please suggest which medicine I need to take now.

Dear lybrateuser, -It is not very clear as to how your heart is functioning erratically, while taking bp your pulse starts at a point & then gradually tapers off at a point which are systolic & diastolic bp readings respectively, it is the normal phenomenon while taking bp -it is good at your age that your bp & sugar are normal -if you have doubts about your hearts function then get checked up by a doctor who may do investigations if there is any problem.

I am 45 years old and my triglycerides level is above 400 always but no hypertension, diabetes, or any other complication. Even other lipid profile factors are also normal.

Hello lybrate-user, the x ray report you have mentioned is grossly withen nomral limits and just based on the report attached, I don't forsee anything serious. Now the two most common cause of breathlessness at night is lung related, particularly asthama like or copd if he was a smoker, another is heart related, which should be ruled out if he has similar breathlessness when he is exerting like climbing stairs, lastly get his blood pressure checked ad it might be on the higher side. Do send me more details so I can help narrow down the diagnosis for you. Hoping I could help. Regards

Definitely avoid fat containing foods ie fry, fatty, fast foods, yolk of egg, also regular walking, swimming & yoga exercise. Take anti lipid drugs as prescribed by doctors. Definitely it will come down to normal.

Sir, you need conventional angiography as ct angio is not good choice for defenitive management. If it shows myocardial bridge and does not need angioplasty then rest assured; no need to worry. You have already done many unnecessary investigtions but forgotten for the basic coronary angiography. As of now ct angiogrphy is not replacement for conventional angiography. Your cardiologist might have suggested for the same. There is no evidence of ischemia at high level of exercise, so little reason to worry.

You have not mentioned your LDL, HDL and triglyceride level. But for sure you can start with daily brisk walking, quit smoking, if you smoke, decrease fat and junk food in your diet, eat more fruits, vegetables, sprouts etc. For detailed diet counselling consult a dietician. Repeat your lipid profile tests after 1 month, if they are still high, meet a cardiologist near you.

I would suggest only one thing- don't read too much into the reports! The chloride levels are very dynamic and highly unstable. They are also affected hugely by lab reagents in monitoring and as such carry no significance in our day-to-day patient evaluation. Please relax!

Is egg yolk good for health?
I heard it's Rich in cholesterol.
How many egg we should eat in a day?
An egg is usually composed of a yellow portion known as egg-yolk and other is egg-white. Egg yolk is rich in fat and yes it contains high amount of cholesterol. Its definitely good for health if taken in moderation. As per your age, weight and height you can take upto eggs daily.
