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 homoeopathic medicine - 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.

General Physician,
Exercise and the Heart
Getting regular exercise is very important to your heart health, whether you are currently healthy, or already have a heart condition. Fortunately, getting "enough" exercise, and getting it safely, can be relatively easy to do for most people. These articles will tell you what you need to know about getting the right amount of exercise for your heart.
Why Is Exercise So Beneficial?
Regular exercise does a lot more than merely strengthen the heart.
Regular exercise can improve the function of your musculoskeletal system, your cardiovascular system, your respiratory system, your metabolism, and even your brain. And as a result, exercise can help you live longer, remain vigorous well into your old age, and to be more productive.
Read about the benefits of exercise.
Heart Healthy Exercise Guidelines
Reaping the rewards of regular exercise does not require you to completely change your lifestyle, or neglect your work or your family. In fact, you can gain most of the benefits of exercise with relatively small changes in your daily routine.
Read about the simple guidelines for heart-healthy exercise.
How Can I Begin An Exercise Program?

The hardest part about regular exercise is beginning it. It is easy to become bored if you start too slowly, or to become injured if you start too quickly. Fortunately, About.com's Exercise Guide has some very helpful information that will help you begin your exercise in a way that is safe and helps to maintains your interest.
Read about beginning an exercise program.
What About Exercise After A Heart Attack?
Exercise is not only okay after a heart attack, it is necessary. Studies show that heart attack survivors who participate in regular exercise have a significantly lower risk of mortality, and a lower risk of recurrent heart attacks.
Read about exercise, and other forms of cardiac rehabilitation, after a heart attack.
After a heart attack, it is natural to wonder when it is safe to resume sexual activity (which turns out to be a favorite form of "exercise" for many). Fortunately, the answer is usually pretty straightforward.

Sudden death in apparently healthy young athletes is a rare but tragic event. Most of these sudden deaths are due to underlying heart conditions that were undiagnosed prior to the fatal event. For this reason, some experts have advocated screening young people for heart disease before they participate in athletic activities. But because these heart conditions are relatively uncommon, and because screening can be expensive, how and when to do such screening has been a controversial question.
Exercise Recommendations For Specific Cardiac Conditions
If you have heart disease, regular exercise is as important -- and likely more important -- than it is for a person without heart disease. However, you may need to pay attention to guidelines designed for your specific type of cardiac condition.

The reason is only sunflower oil is not enough. You won't get various fatty acids if you use single variety of even a good oil. Rotational use of different oils like corn, rice bran, olive, even ground nut and sun flower is good for health. But avoid cotton seed oil.

Hi there. Dry cough associated with chest pain since last 2 weeks. I suggest you to go for a chest x ray becoz pneumonia or a pleural effusion needs to be rules out because sometimes they can present in a similar mannner. Also most of the times excessive coughing may lead to stretching of accessory respiratory muscles which may lead to chest pain. Also to keep in mind chronic acidity is a common cause of dry cough. Please consult a doctor if the problem persists. Take care.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

My mother is suffering from sugar and blood pressure problems please advice me what to do to cure this problem?
Mr Vipul, Diabetes mellitus and hypertension both conditions can only be controlled by appropriate treatment with drugs, die,t exercise.and weight control. There is no cure for these conditions.Treatment has to be for life time. Drug selection and dosage will depend on individual patient, sugar and BP level. Similarly dietary advise also has to be very specific and induvidualised. So you may come in a private conversation with all the details like fasating and Pp sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP reading, dietary pattern, weight and height. There I will be able to give specific advice .

my mother had Brain clot and stroke what is it and what treatment & consequences are there. Currently admitted in hospital. suggestion required.?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
Brain clot obstructs blood supply to the part of brain that is being supplied blood by that particular blood vessel. This will impair functioning of part of body which is controlled by that part of brain. If blood clot is dissolved within 6 hours, there is no resultant deficit. If weakness or paralysis of any part occurs, it has to be treated with physiotherapy. If there is lies of speech, speech therapist will help. Medical treatment will continue for sometime, with physiotherapy and patient's will power and attendant's support, threes painters shows remarkable recovery.

It is true that levels of oxygen are lower at higher altitudes ,even within aeroplanes but with new technology the oxygen levels within plane are okay. low levels of oxygen do trigger a heart attack. let him carry a small portable oxygen cylinder with him and breathe oxygen within plane without asking the crew for it ,though they do have it as all of us are aware about emergency situations , oxygen masks are dropped but why bother. there should be no difficulty in taking permission but do make everything very clear so that he does not face problems at airport during clearance.

- Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

This is called panic attacks. It comes from psychological stress also. We cannot define it is psychological or physical. Better to check with cardiologist. In the tests everything normal. Then it is psychological problem. Better to reduce the stress in job condition. Better to avoid the busy schedule. Observe some days. After taking precautions chest pain come then consult cardiologist. Excessive stress may cause so many problems. Better to follow the stress management techniques. Relax most of the time. Feel comfortable in job environment. Think and feel always in a positive manner. Better to share all the feelings with your close friends and family members. After work relax most of the time. Take any new food items. Spend most of the time with friends and family members. Practise yoga and meditation. Develop smile nature in office environment. Start work in a positive manner. Maintain better friendly relations in office environment. Do not sit alone. Be happy all the time. Best of luck.

Usually, the first sign of sudden cardiac arrest (sca) is loss of consciousness (fainting). At the same time, no heartbeat (or pulse) can be felt. Some people may have a racing heartbeat or feel dizzy or light-headed just before they faint.

Dear Lybrateuser, - For your problems to improve you first have to reduce your weight as it is the main cause of breathing problems & hypertension, this you should do by diet & exercise - monitor your BP at least twice a day, once on getting up in the morning & once in the evening, make a record & see if the medication you are taking is having effect & lowering it - have more of vegetables & fruits in your diet, whole grains & low fat dairy, avoid fried, processed & junk food, aerated drinks, sweets, salty snacks, have yogurt, salad, sprouts, nuts if you feel hungry - do regular exercise like walking for about an hour, do moderate weight lifting on at least two days of the week as it helps boost your metabolism & help reduce weight, also try to include yoga, meditation& deep breathing exercise for 10-15 min in the morning to relax your mind & keep your body fit - keep your self busy in your work, read, listen to music, socialize with friends so that you stop worrying & feel better - keep your sleep & wake up time fixed & try to sleep well for at least 7-8 hrs at night, avoid watching TV, mobile, other gadgets an hour before sleep, a sound & refreshing sleep reduces stress & keeps you alert & active the next day, do not nap for more than half an hour in the afternoon - you have to make an effort & have a strong willpower to change your habits which will keep you healthy & fit.

I'am 25 year old, usually not take proper diet. Didn't had any health issue in past but last month I was having some chest pain in my chest while deep breath, cough, sneeze etc. As per my doctor i'am suffering form tuberculosis pleural effusion. He confirmed this by analysing x-ray and pleural fluid (approx 1litr fluid was collected from my chest) in which my A.D.A level was 83U/L. He prescribed me to take 4 akurit4 tablets (containing front line drug to cure tb) with empty stomach, to be taken before at least 2 hours from having breakfast. After 1 month of starting medicine course I did an ultrasound in which it is found that there is still 560 ml fluid present in my chest which will drain automatically as per doctor. Although i'am not having any serious pain but I have some query's in which I want expert opinions and my query's are -: 1: Is tuberculosis pleural effusion is communicable disease, should I need to stay away from my family and friends if so than for how much time? 2: Is it enough to conclude that someone is suffering from tuberculosis pleural effusion by only seeing x-ray and testing pleural fluid (by checking ADA level). 3: The drug i'am currently taking is good enough to treat this disease? 4: How much will it take to drain this fluid (560 ml) naturally? 5: Should I need do some test to confirm which tuberculosis is this, whether it is normal or mdr or any other before any further treatment? If there is any suggestion or prescription by your side please feel free to share. Please help me by answering the above query's if you can. I will be thankful for your kindness. Eagerly waiting for reply Thanks in advance.

TB is a communicable disease can spread to persons in close contact yes you should stay away from close contact of your family and friends till your cultures are negative. Yes composition of plueral effesion can be suggestive of tb, X ray is also very sensitive to rule out tuberculosis. Yes drugs are good enuogh follow the advise of your pulmonologist 300-500 ml fluid is mild collection of fluid it will absorb automatically in few months. Sputum culture ansd sensitivity ,sputum for afb ,TB gold should be done My suggestion is make a pdf file of all your invesstigation take pictures of all xrays, medicines you are on and get a full review ,we can not treat a serious problem just by making assumptions. IF you can not then follow advise of your respiratory medicine doctor take the full couse of medicine, TB will take months to settle down.
