You should consider quitting smoking. At the age of 21, smoking 1 pack a day is too much. It may lead to severe respiratory diseases in adulthood. Try nicotine gum for change, it's harmless n effective if you wish to quit smoking.

How to reduce the fat and cholesterol?
Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

What is the maximum value of systolic blood pressure that can be there for a hypertensive patient before it gets fatal? Age is 5o years.

What is the maximum value of systolic blood pressure that can be there for a hypertensive patient before it gets fata...
Dear patient, frankly there is no maximum value which can be identified. There are lot of factors which are to be considered in case of hypertensive crisis and the underlying condition. The most important aspect is to understand the risk of a stroke due to bleed in the brain. Blood pressure is the pressure in the arteries during the cycle of contraction and relaxation of heart which is measured as systolic and diastolic pressure. The same pressure is maintained in the entire hemodynamic system. In the brain there are very small blood vessels which are susceptible for bleeding incase if this pressure increases. So it is not advisable for blood pressure systolic as well as diastolic to vary beyond a range of +/- 20 mm of hg for a particular age of patient. Please control your blood pressure by medication, salt restriction after proper consultation with a physician.
