Important Differences Between High Blood Pressure Staging & Classing
=========================================================
There are two different �typing� schemes doctors use when describing high blood pressure. The first, classification, conveys information about the underlying cause of the high blood pressure. The second, staging, refers to the severity of the high blood pressure itself.

The Staging System:

The system used to stage high blood pressure is very simple. Blood pressure has essentially two varieties; Stage I and Stage II.
The qualifications for staging high blood pressure as either Stage I or Stage II are based simply on numbers. If average measured blood pressure is above a certain numerical cutoff point, it is staged accordingly.

Stage I Hypertension:
---------------------------
Stage I Hypertension refers to blood pressure with average readings that are above 140/90 but below the criteria for Stage II Hypertension. Stage I Hypertension is an early, but still important form of high blood pressure. Depending on certain lifestyle factors, doctors may choose to either begin treatment with medicine or to allow for a �grace period� during which the patient is instructed to make certain diet and activity changes in an attempt to reduce the blood pressure.

Stage II Hypertension:
--------------------------------
Stage II Hypertension can be diagnosed via either of two numbers. A measurement of either
systolic blood pressure >160
diastolic pressure >100
qualifies as Stage II Hypertension.

Treatment guidelines allow for much less flexibility in the initial approach to Stage II Hypertension, and those diagnosed at this stage are almost universally started on antihypertensive medicines immediately.
Stage II Hypertension also requires more frequent blood pressure checks and more careful monitoring.

Mr. Lybrate-user, some times bp may show variation during the day, but that is not as wide as in your case. So please check the bp after a day or two, at the same time. If it shows higher number (>140/90mmhg), then there may be a need for considering treatment for the same, mainly because you are too young to have high bp. As regards diabetes, with 105 mg blood sugar, you seem to have no such problem. But because your father has diabetes, you need to be very careful. For that you have to adapt a modified lifestyle. That is to maintain normal weight (bmi <23 kgs/m2), your present bmi is 30.46 kgs/m2 which shows grade 1 obesity. This is the major contributor for increased bp and can lead to diabetes. Your ideal body weight has to be 80 kgs. Plus a daily exercise of over 1 hour is needed. Also dietary intake has to be based on 80 kgs and extent of daily physical activity. No smoking and alcohol. This life style can keep you away from high blood pressure and diabetes. Thanks.

You are right, even doctors get confused & perform test like ecg (not very definite though) and a troponin test (cost 200- 1000/- in best place) which is specific only when damage to muscles of heart has occurred- heart attack.

Dear lybrate user, your husband needs to take homoeopathic mother tincture rauwolfia q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for his problem of high blood pressure. Also he should avoid mutton, beef, chicken, ghee, butter etc. Kindly remember that medication to control high blood pressure will affect his sexual performance & it will diminish your sexual power.

Your father must have been taken for angioplasty after the diagnosis of heart attack was conclusive. It seems from your narrative that his heart stopped beating for a while on the table at the time of angioplasty and he was resuscitated by cardiac thumping. Now that he is okay, he needs to follow the medical advice religiously taking medicines, dietary constraints, proper work routines etc. Done rightly he should have a normal life. Chest pains need clinical examination and necessary checks so keep in touch with the treating physician.

Palpitations - How With Homeopathic Remedies You Can Manage Them?

Palpitations - How With Homeopathic Remedies You Can Manage Them?

The heart may sometimes face excessive fluttering or a throbbing sensation, which may make you feel uncomfortable. Such sudden throbbing sensations resulting in discomfort are called 'palpitations'. Homeopathy has some great remedies depending on the cause of these problems.

Let’s have a look at these:

  1. Palpitations caused by anxiety: This is one of the top causes for palpitations which occur before sitting for an exam, interview or before important events of your life. However, they may tend to stay longer and it is advisable that you control them with the use of Aconite or Arsenic Album.
  2. Palpitations caused by Physical exertion: If you have a weakened heart or if you smoke and thus tend to feel a lot of exertion even with the slightest of physical efforts, then Spigelia, Iberis and Digitalis are good medications. Digitalis is especially good for palpitations caused by the slightest of movements, while spigelia is very good with palpitations that cause arm pain as well.
  3. Anemia: Anemia or the lack of red blood cells can be very dangerous for your health as it can damage your vital organs. It can also cause palpitations along with other symptoms such as paleness, lack of strength and drowsiness. Natrum Mur and Ferrum Met are two of the most effective remedies in such cases.
  4. Use of tobacco products: Another reason for palpitations developing is the use of tobacco products, such as cigarettes or chewing tobacco. In such cases, palpitations may occur even with the slightest of exertions or at rest. Medications effective in such situations are Kalmia, Tabacum and Convallaria. These variations may be required depending on the types of symptoms you may show such as a quick heart rate or a slow heart rate.
  5. A palpitation caused by hyperthyroidism: Excessive secretion of thyroid is called hyperthyroidism and can cause a host of problems within the body including palpitation. Iodum and Spongia are two excellent medications in treating variations of palpitations caused by an over active thyroid gland.
  6. Palpitations caused by acidity or gastric problems: This is possibly the most common cause for palpitations and Lycopodium as well as Abies Can are two very effective homeopathic medications, which can easily remedy the situation, depending on the type of problems you are having. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
