Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

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. Plenty of fluids orally. I suggest brisk walking for 40 mins, 5 days a week. Remain stress free as much as possible. Take your medicines regularly.

As blockage is not develop in a day its process of many years. Do his lipid profile send his body weight and height in cm. Past n latest history. Any habit like tobacco smoking n drinks. Image of latest ecg. If he is clinically stable n not having chest pain then we can try herbal preparation but it has risk depending up on (how much risk?) all above parameters that I had asked you to send me. Like ecg report cholesterol his built. Chest pain. While walking air hunger? n also though you done ptca there are again chances of blockage in next few years to avoid all these our herbal medicine works.

too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

No it need not be typical heart attack means myocardial infarction. But since you have this precordial pain of chest bit is better to consult a medical specialist to exclude any abnormalities in the functioning of heart including blood pressure and blood sugar level.

When heart attack came if we do not want again this action then what should we do.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
When heart attack came if we do not want again this action then what should we do.
Prevention of a heart attack before or after a heart attack- no bad fats, only good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/butter + a katori of assorted nuts to give healthy fats and proteins. No smoking/exposure to pollution. Lead a disciplined lifesyle with minimum negative tensions. Positive stress is good as it brings along good results. Loneliness is worse than bad fats. Keep busy in socially productive activities. Exercise regularly according to tolerance. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Reduce salt to bare minimum, avoid packaged foods as they have high salt content as preservative. Take more potassium like citrus fruits, oranges, lemons, amla, banana. You are only 24, as a social service pass on the tips of healthy living with as many people as you can get blood sugar test & total lipid profile done as a routine.

I am 37 years old with hypothyroidism and taking 100 mg thyronorm. My cholesterol levels are 240 total HDL 48 triglycerides 150 ldl 190 I am not using any medicine for cholesterol. I don't want to use statins because of their proved side effects. I read that ldl receptors will be decreased in hypothyroid patients which is the cause for increased ldl. I follow healthy diet and do brisk walk 45 min a day. Are there any alternatives to lower ldl cholesterol alone.

LDL of 190 is unacceptable. If with your current regimen it's not coming down then do start cholesterol reducing med. The side effects of statins are over exaggerated by ill informed press. But still if you have any reservations for statin, then you can start Ezetemibe, which though not as effective but may be a stating point.
