Hypertension During Pregnancy - Techniques for Managing it!

Hypertension During Pregnancy - Techniques for Managing it!

Hypertension during pregnancy can be a problem for both baby and the mother. Thus it is of utmost importance that during pregnancy a good health should be maintained along with controlled blood pressure and cholesterol levels. With an increase in multiple births and women of older age the risk of hypertension during pregnancy has increased. But if proper care is taken it can be avoided.

Types of Pregnancy Hypertension:
There are three prominent forms of hypertension that can be seen during pregnancy. The pregnant ladies should be aware of the same. These are:

  1. Preeclampsia: This is the most common and serious hypertension during pregnancy. This hypertension can only be controlled by delivering the fetus, which usually involves complications like death of the mother or child. This occurs 20 weeks after pregnancy.
  2. Gestational hypertension: This form is only prevalent during pregnancy and is not a problem for the mother or baby after delivery. This usually occurs in the last leg of the pregnancy
  3. Chronic hypertension: This form forms either prior to the pregnancy or before 20 weeks of the pregnancy.

Management of Pregnancy Hypertension:
Hypertension during pregnancy can be handled by the following:

  1. In case of severe hypertension, blood pressure medication should be continued during pregnancy.
  2. If you are on ACE inhibitor type medication, then the medication is changed to one that is even safe for the baby.
  3. Your doctor might like to monitor you daily and can advise hospitalization for a few days
  4. If medication is missed, it might lead to uncontrolled life threatening hypertension. Thus the medication should not be missed at any time.
  5. In case of mild hypertension and absence of other diseases like diabetes and kidney disorders, the doctor might stop the medication or reduce the dose. Also, being off medicine does not cause any problem in mild hypertension.
  6. Irrespective of the hypertension being mild or severe, the prenatal appointments should not be missed, so that the doctor can monitor you and the baby. So that problems, like rise in blood pressure, poor fetal growth, and signs of preeclampsia can be spotted and steps can be taken for the same.
  7. In case there is some form of hypertension present the prenatal visits and lab tests will be more.
  8. Apart from the usual second trimester ultrasound, there will be periodic ultrasounds in the third trimester to monitor the baby's growth and the amniotic fluid.
  9. Also regular fetal tests and Doppler ultrasounds will be done to track the baby's growth.
  10. Lifestyle changes should be made. Salt intake should be limited, fresh food instead of processed food should be consumed.
  11. If blood pressure is high then doctor might ask you to avoid exercise especially if you never did before pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Dear lybrate-user, At age 70, the body recuperation declines, there is muscle mass and bone loss. Injections of calcium may help, but only if her digestion is able to take it and also, if she is consuming adequate fats, vitamins to ensure digestion of these injections. Change her diet to increase fresh vegetables and fruit. Avoid besan, brinjals, rajma etc from her diet that will cause further digestive strain. Give her mineral rich grains like ragi, jowari. Wheat (roti) is also very diffivult to digest. Give butter milk. Regards.

lybrate-user, you have the solution to your problem. You MUST plan properly and take structures meditation and mind calming classes. Be with nature more often and appreciate the different faces of each vision. Nature is prefect even if no two things are alike. We should learn to be like nature, appreciative of the variations offered before us. Take ashwaandha and Brahmi as tonics. They will help you increase your mental tolerance. Great are the people who can smile at every variation in life. There is beauty and fun in it too. Try this approach.

High blood pressure can be controlled through measures like diet, regular exercise, yoga, stress free living. But one thing one should also rule out is any underlying causes. Therefore proper consultation necessary. If not controlled with above measures one should not shy away from medicine.

Reasons for Chest Pain in Young Adults Cough/Cold: Children may experience benign pain in the chest after a severe bout of cold and persistent cough. Pleurisy: Pain may originate from inflammation of the lining around the lungs. The pain may become worse by deep breathing. Pleurisy is caused along with a viral syndrome. Pericarditis: If the inflammation involves the pericardium covering the heart muscle, the result could be chest pain that often exacerbates with deep breathing. First Aid for a Heart Attack ImageHypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: The condition occurs due to the increase in thickness of the septum and the left ventricular wall. The result of this rare condition could be chest pain on exertion, irregular heartbeats, and shortness of breath. Increased voltage could be reported on an EKG due to the thick heart muscle. The condition may be found in students engaging in strenuous physical activities, which may include football, basketball, or other athletic activities. Mitral Valve Prolapsed: A few young adults may experience chest pain from the prolapse of the mitral valve into the left atrium when there is contraction in the left ventricle. The condition may also cause intermittent symptoms, such as weakness, shortness of breath, palpitation, dizziness, and extreme fatigue. A 2D echocardiogram is used to diagnose the condition. Syndrome X: Chest pain in young adults may be experienced due to obesity, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and inactivity. Though tests may not confirm coronary artery disease, such people are at an increased risk of cardiovascular event and try to lose weight. The doctor may prescribe cholesterol, blood pressure medications and encouraged to exercise. Acid Reflux: The condition can lead to heartburn that often mimics chest pain. Gallstone Symptoms: In some adults, gall bladder symptoms can be felt like the signs of a coronary artery disease. Most cases of chest pain in young adults are actually a gall bladder attack. Anxiety: Some people with anxiety problem may experience chest pain symptoms. It is normal for such people to feel chest pain when they are anxious and stressed. Anxiety can only worsen the symptoms. Heart problems: Congenital heart abnormality is the primary cause of chest pain in young adults. The pain may also be caused due to blood clotting. Smoking is the most common risk factor in young people that can constrict blood vessels and promote blood clots. Some important remedies are given below for the treatment of chest pain: Arnica mont. – Chest pain with sore and bruised feeling. Ranunculus b. – Good remedy for intercostal rheumatism, sharp stitching pain in the chest along with dyspnoea. Rhus tox. – Pains extend to the shoulders, worse by initial motion and cold-damp weather, better continued motion and warmth. Kali carb. – Stitching pain in the chest, which gets worse between 2-3 A.M Actea racemosa. – Pain worse on the right side. Rumex c. – Sharp stitching pain through the left lung, often with cough. Bryonia – Chest pain is of stitching, burning and stabbing in nature, is worse by motion and better by rest and pressure. Thirst for large quantities of water and dryness of mucous membranes often accompanies. Stannum – Knife like stitches, worse on bending forward and left side. Aconite – Chest pain due to pneumonia of first stage along with anxiety and restlessness.

Looks like it but you should also rule out hyperthyroidism, especially if your son is denying any worries or emotional stressors.

Integrative Treatment for Heart Health, Blockages and Circulation

Integrative Treatment for Heart Health, Blockages and Circulation

Integrative or mind-body treatments include diet, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, counselling for mental and emotional stability, environment health and positive faith building. Integrative therapies have become very popular and sort after. A lot of research is being done to evaluate the results of drugless therapies and traditional systems of healing around the world. 

As a doctor, therapist and counsellor, we realized that the problems faced by patients range from the most common 'what to eat and what not to do' to 'why did this happen to me', or  'how does it cost so much' and most important, overcoming the ‘fear and pain’ associated with diseases.  Few patients want to challenge a line of treatment, but do not have the courage to ask; and many will meekly follow the doctor’s advice. Things go wrong when patients are forced to follow some relatives or friends advice to take medicines that actually do them more harm than help.

It s always better to take professional advice.

Heart health also benefits from integrative treatments that include nutritional support from customized diet, customized exercises, mindful meditation, various self healing techniques like yogasana, acupressure, and powerful detoxification. Natural, herbal and Ayurvedic medication have proved very effective.

Medical research has indicated, blockages that cause heart attack, stroke or deep vein thrombosis begin 80% times with wear-tear of inner lining of blood vessel. This injury gets covered with a plaque deposit that is formed initially as a self protection mechanism. This plaque deposit has a large volume of LDL cholesterol. So, wrongly, LDL cholesterol is termed as Bad, whereas, it actually deposits to fight the disease (oxdative free radicals) from doing more harm. Swelling and rupture of this plaque causes blockage of blood vessel and blood flow is hampered in smaller vessels away from the site of rupture. When this happens in delicate organs like the heart, damage of heart muscles take place (causing heart attack of heart failure) or when in blood vessels supplying nutrition to brain, causing stroke and paralysis.

Research also confirms that unless the formation of these plaques is not retarded or reversed, new blockages keep occurring and procedures like angioplasty or bypass fail after a short time duration. This condition is called Restenosis. This can happen in same blockage area, on the stent or in new blood vessels.

World Health Organisation has taken note of this fact and all over the world, Integrative treatment approach is gaining importance and results have also encouraged doctors and patients.

Clinical trials conducted have shown that  Non invasive, holistic, integrative approach is able to retard blockages, reduce the formation of blockages and improve blood circulation all over the body while supporting different organ functions. These therapy options can be safely taken with allopathy, before heart attack, after attack, after angioplasty, stent or CABG procedures. We recommend high risk persons to take these as precaution as well.

At present award winning, non invasive, clinically proved treatment protocol is available and is benefiting thousands of patients.
