There are many reasons which may cause blood pressure to lower down, it can be anemia due to blood loss, low fluid intake, low salt intake, hypothyroidism etc. Firstly increase salt in diet, drink lots of water, coconut water is good for low blood pressure. If still it persists after following this, then revert.

Hello, Blood pressure refers to the force exerted on artery walls by the blood flowing through them. The narrower and stiffer your arteries become, the higher your blood pressure goes. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80. BP higher than 130/90 is called Hypertension. You can have high blood pressure for months to years without any symptoms, but the damage caused by hypertension can eventually lead to severe health problems. The health problems from high blood pressure are the result of two major health stages. First, the blood vessels in your body narrow and stiffen. Second, and as a result of this, there is a decreased blood flow to different organs and body parts such as the heart, the brain, the kidneys, the eyes, and the nerves. This can lead to severe complications if left unchecked. 1)Monitor your blood pressure regularly. 2)Exercise: Exercise for at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity at least 5 days per week 3)Manage stress through meditation and yoga or some hobby. 4)Cut down on alcohol or smoking. 5)Limit your caffeine intake. Caffeine causes an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. Drink no more than 2 cups tea per day. 6)DASH Diet: This is a medically designed and studied diet plan focusing on reducing blood pressure. The diet is high in vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, and lean proteins. It is also low in sodium, added-sugars, and fats. 7)Restrict your Salt intake to not more than WHO recommended dose of 1500 mg per day. 8)Eat Nuts: Eat foods such as almonds, flax seeds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, lentils, peas, and kidney beans. 9)Most important take your medicines on time.

How much angiography cost @dehradun and how much time needed for that .precautions to be taken for that test.
Angiography usually cost anything between 10000 to 20000 rupees and it takes only 5 to 15 minutes to perform and the only precaution you need to take is that you need to be at least 3-4 hours fasting and you need to have a normal kidney function.

High Blood Pressure - Common Risk Factors That You Must Know!

Clinical Cardiology, MD - Consultant Physician
Cardiologist, Surat
High Blood Pressure - Common Risk Factors That You Must Know!

The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood to the entire body through a network of arteries and veins. This network contains big vessels which branch out further to supply blood to the distant organs. There is, therefore, some pressure that the heart and thereby the vessels need to exert to push the blood through these vessels. This is known as blood pressure, and normal pressure levels range from 90-140(systolic)/60-90(diastolic) mm of Hg. However, due to various reasons, this pressure could be more, which is one of the first signs of heart disease. 

Causes of increased blood pressure: 

  1. Thickening of the blood vessels. With age, the elastic blood vessels naturally turn rigid and less elastic, so there is more pressure required to push blood. It is natural for people over 55 years of age to have higher readings of blood pressure. This is known as primary hypertension (HTN) 
  2. Narrowed blood vessels. This happens due to cholesterol accumulation along the walls of the blood vessels. Faulty dietary habits along with sedentary lifestyle have increased the incidence of hypertension due to this condition, known as atherosclerosis. Critical atherosclerotic narrowing of renal arteries lead to renovascular HTN that is one of the commonest of secondary HTN. 

Other Causes of secondary hypertension are: 

  1. Kidney problems 
  2. Thyroid hormone disorders 
  3. Congenital heart defects 
  4. Chronic alcohol abuse 
  5. Adrenal gland tumours 
  6. Chronic use of medications like birth control pills, pain killers, etc. 

Unidentified and uncontrolled hypertension can be silent and can lead to more severe conditions like heart attack and stroke. India is fast becoming the new hypertension capital of the world. Some of the common risk factors are: 

  1. Age 
  2. Family history 
  3. Being obese or overweight 
  4. Sedentary lifestyle 
  5. Smoking 
  6. Alcohol consumption 
  7. Excessive salt intake 
  8. Stress levels 
  9. Ethnic background 

Symptoms: 

  1. Hypertension can go undetected for years together, but if there are risk factors like diabetes and high cholesterol, it is advisable to periodically monitor blood pressure. 
  2. Headaches, nosebleeds, and shortness of breath should not be ignored. These can be the first warning signs of hypertension, and if detected early, preventive measures can be taken. 
  3. If there are co-morbid risk factors, it is advisable to constantly keep a check on BP readings. 

Management: 

This includes a combination of diet and lifestyle modifications. 

  1. Quit smoking and alcohol: Of the many wonders quitting smoking can do, reducing BP readings is just one. The improvement would be almost instantaneous. Quit or else reduce alcohol and see dramatic improvements. 
  2. Weight management: Through a combination of diet and exercise, ensure that weight is brought under control. Set a target BMI (Below 26 kg/m2) and work towards it religiously. 
  3. Diet: Reduce salt, increase potassium, increase vitamin D, eat a heart-healthy diet, and see the hypertension readings improve. Please find attached and reviewed copy for health tip for posting
