Best way to control BP and wt shud my diet chart as I had encountered heart attack and im a heart patient.

Best way to control BP and wt shud my diet chart as I had encountered heart attack and im a heart patient.
Dear, *mild exercise regularly, *eat a healthy diet eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure *consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. *reduce sodium in your diet *caffeine can raise blood pressure by as much as 10 mm hg in people who rarely consume it, but there is little to no strong effect on blood pressure in habitual coffee drinkers. *reduce your stress *get support supportive family and friends can help improve your health. They may encourage you to take care of yourself, drive you to the doctor's office or embark on an exercise program with you to keep your blood pressure low.

My age is 30 years. I am having heavy cholesterol. How to reduce it.?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
My age is 30 years. I am having heavy cholesterol. How to reduce it.?
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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

If your father is nearly 7 feet as mentioned above, I will not recommend weight reduction except reduction in salt and sugar which he must have been advised after angioplasty & being diabetic on no sugar. his bp is low. give him more fluids and get checked again. if it is one time reading , do not worry and keep him hydrated by insisting on drinking more water. if bp is constantly lower than 100 , which is highly unlikely but do get checked by your doctor to know the reasons of low bp like low thyroid,anemia.. regarding recent heart attack , do write back about investigations done and numbers of blocks. angioplasty has been done for 1 or more blocks ? aftercare for angioplasty is routine prevention of a heart attack like eating right,moderate exercise,no smoking and no negative stress.

Why is Coconut SO good for you?

MS (Psychotherapy and Counselling), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Kolkata
Why is Coconut SO good for you?
Apart from its use in many Indian homes for traditional reasons, coconut has several health benefits to offer -

1) Helps diabetics by slowing sugar release into the bloodstream.
2) Boosts metabolism and increases energy because it is more likely to be burned as fuel than stored as body fat.
3) Helps treat malnutrition because it is easy to digest and absorb.
4) Kills disease-causing bacteria, fungi, yeasts and viruses because of the antimicrobial effects of its fatty acids.
5) Prevents strokes and brain disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
6) Prevent tooth decay - coconut oil fights bacteria responsible for tooth decay and could be a healthy, non-chemical additive in toothpaste and mouthwash.
