Your blood sugar level is high so avoid sweets as more as possible. Take pranacharya diabeto capsule and shilajeet capsule twice a day. Instead of these tablets in my opinion you should go for ayurvedic medicines for sgot & sgpt.

Normally bp medicines work for 6 to 8hrs in moderate hypertension. So you have to take an afternoon dose. As well.

If you people have not been taking care about diet after surgery in 2007, start now, avoid oily food, take lots of fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits, a glass of warm water with lemon juice + spoon of honey every morning on empty stomach. Some good fats like a katori of assorted nuts + a spoon of desighee/ butter every day to boost up good fats and to reduce bad fats, stay away from transfats like namkeens, burgers, pizzas, tinned food and make it a habit to take less salt, avoid chutneys, pickles, papads etc as salt is used as a preservative in all packed foods bought from market.

Hi. You are very well described your case and situation. Thank you for that. This is a very routinely seen situation. People have to take medicines for high blood pressure, cholesterol, for diabetes and other such problems. So they land up taking tens of medicines every day. So ultimately, at some point of time, they feel tired of taking all this medicines. But the fact is there is no actual alternate to available presently for this. And, definitely, stopping to take medicines is a very bad decision which ultimately the patient understands in a longer run. You should practice yoga regularly, concentrate on good lifestyle and healthy dietary habits. Talk about this with your treating doctors so that he can optimise your treatment. Take care.

Hi I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. It seems that your knees are under a lot of stress due to high weight but you can start doing exercises - Quadriceps & Hamstring strengthening exercises for your affected knee. Also start walking for about 2-3 km everyday ( Brisk walks) and get your vitamin D and calcium metabolism correct. Do not hesitate to contact me in case of further queries.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Good to know that reports for heart are normal. May be you have stomach problems like acidity due to wrong eating. Take regularly some warm liquids whih are nourishing and less of fatty and oily foods which cause bulk to stomach. You can have clear soups, green tea, diluted toned milk, warm water with honey and lemon juice. Any of thses every 2 hours to wash acid in stomach. Seasonal vegetables & fruits as per constitution. Less of oils and spices but no bland food either. Black pepper and cinnamon is good for heart. Take minumum salt and sugar despite bp and blood sugar being normal.

Hi lybrate-user, tell him take small & frequent meal. For type 2 diabetes avoid simple carbs & simple sugar in diet. Don't take sugar, gur, honey, juices, cold drink etc. Don't take potato and other starchy foods. Take more & more green leafy vegetables & salad. Meal gap should not be more than 3 hrs. For hypertension take low salt in diet. Don't use table salt, chips, papad, achar etc. Use less oil in cooking. Don't use ghee, butter, cream & fried foods. Do regular walk/exercise/ yoga or any other physical activity. I think it will help you, you can take an online diet consultation to get a chart.

My mom is 65 years old. And weighs around 70kg, 5 feet tall. She is over weight as per bms. I am afraid she might be having heart problems bcoz of poor diet and no exercise. Mostly she is idle and watches tv. Some of my frnds parents had heart attacks. So I am worried of her, as she she takes rests and breathes after 100 meter walk. I want to check whether plaque or block is in her heart and possibilities of heart attack. Is it possible to check. If so what is the name of test and how frequent I mush take her for check up. Thank you.

It's difficult to do dieting, heavy exercise after a certain age and metabolism slows down but eating habits remain same specially in tv addicts. I can suggest healthy eating and healthy snacking, if you can change her habits, about check ups, I will suggest later. First things first. No diet charts, healthy eating will help you also. Give up sugar, sweets, fats, salt in moderation. Take lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of these items have the much needed calcium, take fresh lemon. Take a spoon of honey added to it, and take with warm water every day in morning on empty stomach. Avoid things like snacks, street food, namkeem, street foods. Use minimum oils for cooking. Nothing new. Simple walk is best exercise. Encourage her to breathe fresh air near plants. Even if there's slight reduction in the weight but the body becomes more supple. Get her tested for blockages in heart by angiography or cardiac ct scan and get blood tested for sugar, thyroid profile done along with blood for lipids and ecg and may be halter test if she can tolerate. Get ultrasound abdomen. You get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum. Let her watch tv, if habitual of taking snacks in between, give her an apple.

Hi I have high blood pressure I want to know do I have to take medicine lifelong how can I cure it by the root.
There some reversible factors and some non-reversible factors that lead to derangement of blood pressure. Stress, high salty food, smoking, excessive intake of caffeine and lack of exercise are these reversible factors. Age related firmness of body vessels, Diabetes and genetic reasons etc are non-reversible. You can try and remove or reduce the reversible factors to see if it brings down your BP, but even after that if BP remains above optimal level, then you will need medical therapy as well for lifetime.
