When dealing with low blood pressure, it is usually suggested to increase your salt and fluid intake. Before increasing your salt consumption, do check with your doctor. Also, cut down on alcoholic beverages and high-carbohydrate foods such as bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes.

If it is only on walking and disappearance on rest, then you need to investigate for coronary insufficiency. Do an ECG at rest and after exercise.

Tmt is not a gold standard test for ruling out if there are any blockages to the coronary vessels. Ideal test would be an angiography, if he is symptomatic as described, it is advisable to have him evaluated for the heaviness in the chest on exertion.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes mellitus can only be controlled, there is no cure. Treatment has to continue for life time. Depending on type of diabetes, either oral anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections are given. In addition there has to be strict dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight and improve internal insulin action. Thanks.

Chest pain (Angina pectoris) usually caused by various reasons. First of all you should rule out any cardiac /respiratory/ abdominal organs disorders. Etc.Mere flatulence can cause chest pain due to pressure exerted it can radiate to left arm, chest middle, or back and neck too. Some people may gets fainting from too. Treat the cause accordingly, then only it gets cured.

I am 21 years old my blood pressure showed 139 and something 2 times after getting my bp checked at a doctor. He scared me alot by saying stuff like I should lose 10 kgs (im 75 right now) but he says I can not jog, I can not even walk or I might even get a heart attack then how am I supposed to lose any weight? My simple question is can my high blood pressure be cured totally after a certain period of time if I follow certain steps and medications? Yes or no just a simple answer I need.

You do not have too high BP and and both reading should be told to advise. You can do a TMT to decide if you can do exertion ad if ther is any heart issue /.You need to have diet plan based on your BMI & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 KMs and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

One pound equals 3,500 calories. If you cut 500 a day from your diet, you'll lose a pound a week. People who lose weight slowly, about 1 to 2 pounds per week, are more successful at keeping the weight off. You'll also burn additional calories if you increase your physical activity. You weight-loss plan should do all of the following: •Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. •Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. •Contain foods low in saturated fats, avoid trans fats, and limit cholesterol and salt (sodium). •Avoid refined sugars and processed foods. Some tips to help you lose weight: •Keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat is critical! Noting how you feel when you eat will help you identify emotional triggers that may cause you to overeat. Emotional eaters tend to overeat. •Eat when you're truly hungry rather than when you're tired, anxious or stressed. •Eat slowly. If you eat too fast, you eat more than you need to satisfy your hunger. Your brain needs time to catch up with your stomach. •Plan your meals ahead of time so you make healthy choices. When dining out, check the menu online and decide what you will order before you sit down. Ask for dressings on the side. Opt for foods that are baked, broiled or steamed versus fried or swimming in creamy sauces. Avoid chips and bread baskets—they add unnecessary calories. •Stay hydrated. People often mistake thirst for hunger. •Eat breakfast. If you skip this meal, you'll be starving by lunchtime. You'll have more difficulty making healthy choices throughout the day. •Find resources to help you keep track of your food choices and nutritional values, and that can offer additional support when you need it.

If you have chest pain please consult a cardiologist immediately and also please reduce your tension .normal bp for your age is 121/80 and also it can reach a maximum of 133/84. This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression.

My wife age 50, high BP under control by medicine. If she happen to know somebody died all of sudden by heart attack and if chest pain starts she will fear of heart attack and death if we check BP and ecg we found that everything is normal. Our family doctor said this is a psychological problem and consult a psychiatrist. Doctor, we sincerely request for a solution. Please guide us. Thanks.

Your family doctor is right, sudden loss of a dear one does lead to panick attacks but one needs good understanding near and dear ones, she may not need a psychiatrist to help her. You can give her a mild tranquillizer like librium, I would be surprised if there was no reaction to ultimate truth like death, though reactions to sudden death vary from individuals, some keep emotions bottled up, others vent out which is less harmful compared to pent up emotions. Reassure her that since her tests are normal, nothing will happen to her. Life is fragile if we look at natural calamities, bomb blasts & road accidents. She has to look at death with a larger perspective, being surrounded by caring people who understand her and slowly try to instil some logic.

Now the incidence is a past. Angioplasty patients are more fit than normal. So don't worry. Nothing special is to be observed. Continue normal life style and diet. Usually make a habit of changing the brand of edible oil.
