There is a rule in medicine that any chest pain should be labelled as heart trouble until proved otherwise. So subject yourself to all tests related to heart till it is proved that you don't have heart disease. Other causes could be hyperactivity, gas, liver trouble, bronchitis etc. But leave that decision to doctors. But don't waste time.

The pain in left arm or hand while walking or exercising is a sign of poor blood supply to the heart. As you have already stated that your ecg is not good and you are a heart patient, you should investigate further by doing an angiography to ascertain the state of coronary blood flow. If there is any serious block in the coronaries then you need to undergo treatments like angioplasty. Do not neglect and keep in contact with your physician.

Hello Doctor, I was diagnosed high b. P of 150/96. I am taking hypertension medicines (doctor's advise) for past 8 months (metpure xl 50 for first 3 months and metpure xl 25 for last 5 months). My bp at this moment stands normal at 122/80. I have not any past record of heart disease or anything. Is it safe to take these medicines at this age? And how long should I continue? Kindly advice.

Hi. It is good that your bp is now normal. For anybody who has raised bp at a lesser age, thorough investigations have to done to look for cause of raised bp and then medicines are to be started as per the reports. So hope you had also underwent such investigations. There are other group of bp medicines, which are more suitable in your age group rather than metpure. So, you should ask your doctor regarding its bad effects (like weakness, erection problems, etc) and discuss and decide weather a change in medicine is required or not. Take care.

High Blood Pressure - A Complete Guide!

Hypertension is commonly known as high blood pressure, a condition in which the heart pumps excessive blood which may eventually cause damage to the arteries. Hypertension generally develops over a prolonged period of time. Hypertension is calculated to be a blood pressure count above 140/90 (millimetres of mercury).

Hypertension is of two types:

  1. Primary hypertension: The cause of primary hypertension is not specific. It happens to develop over a period of time.
  2. Secondary hypertension: Secondary hypertension occurs due to an underlying health condition. This type of hypertension may develop all of a sudden. There are many causes of secondary hypertension

In some cases high blood pressure can develop during a pregnancy. If high blood pressure persists for over 20 weeks, it can cause severe complications. Untreated hypertension can result in premature delivery.

Signs you have hypertension
Hypertension generally does not have any specific symptom. Thus, it can remain undiagnosed for years. Some of the symptoms of hypertension are:

  1. Headaches
  2. Dizziness
  3. Nose bleeding
  4. Irregular heartbeat
  5. Tiredness and fatigue
  6. Breathing difficulty

Risks associated with hypertension

  1. Heart diseases
  2. Stroke
  3. Heart failure
  4. Vision loss
  5. Kidney damage
  6. Memory loss

How can it be treated?
Incorporating certain changes to your diet can help in combating the symptoms of hypertension. In a nutshell, a healthy way of living consisting of a well- balanced diet and regular exercises are the most basic ways of treating this condition. Some of the important lifestyle changes that can treat high blood pressure are:

  1. Restrict salt in your diet to a maximum limit of 5g a day.
  2. Limit alcohol consumption
  3. Lose weight by keeping a check on your diet and exercising regularly
  4. Manage your stress levels by using relaxation techniques to manage stress levels.
  5. Medications are also used to lower the blood pressure
    • Calcium-channel blockers
    • Vasodilators
    • Angiotensin receptor blockers

Mind and body are interlinked, and psychological problems like high levels of stress, anxiety or tension badly effect our bodily functions. When we are in continue state of high levels of stress, our body demands and needs more energy to fight against it. Due to this, activation of white blood cells occur. However, for a longer duration if it occurs results in weakening of immune system and leading to problems like headache, diabetes etc. Engage yourself in some relaxation exercise like deep breathing on a regular basis like pranayam or yoga. Also, it is important to identify the stressors and work upon them. For this, you need to consult a doctor/psychologist who can help you in better management program.

Mr. Lybrate-user, blood glucose levels mentioned look well within control. What is the hba1c%? it should be <7. If one maintains these levels then energy level of the patient is usually good. Bp should ideally be 140 / 80. May be needs to improve the treatment. Walking helps better utilisation of blood glucose also makes person feel fresh and energetic. She should walk at least 15 to 20 minutes with in the house premises or around it. Walk 2 to 3 times a day, so that a minimum of 45 minutes of walking is done by the end of the day. If possible she should also learn pranayam and practice it daily. It helps improve energy level and also helps in relaxation. Thanks.

My father (age 79 ) has recently undergone bypass heart surgery. A day before heart surgery, as he was complaining of blooding in stool, he was made to undergo colonoscopy and it was found that some polyps were there which needed to be removed. Some hemorrhoids (internal) were also found. Polyps were removed after polypectomy and bypass surgery was performed on the following day. However blooding in stool continued. Another colonoscopy has done to see the site of polypectomy. It was observed that there was no sign of blooding from that area and yellow stool was visible. They concluded that blooding was mainly due to internal hemorrhoids found in anus. Doctors have started treatment for the same by prescribing stool softener, laxitos, tablets and fiber supplements. However, HB level has reduced drastically, to 9.4 . Should we give him something for increasing the HB level. What is prescribed in this case.

Blood thinners are given during bypass surgery & reason of bleeding is not polyps which have been removed but the scar left is raw, it will take time to heal. One cannot stop blood thinners for few days after surgery, or may be later some people do take them for entire life. Do consult your surgeon who removed polyps, there are certain enzyme preparations which help in early healing of both wounds- heart and the site of polyps. To boost hb, give iron tonics, lots of proteins like toned milk, vitamin c & fresh oxygen which give stengths to blood vessels to heal faster. Continue with other medicines for food pipe.

Monocyte report is normal, range is between 1-10%. You have written a report of your differential count of blood white cells. Blood has 3 types of cells, red blood cells carry a pigment heam, responsible for redness and function is to carry oxygen to different parts of body. Individual test is called hemoglobin, 2) platelets are responsible for clotting, to stop bleeding if there is a cut 3) white blood cells are like soldiers, an army within the blood to protect us from infection, neutrophils are high in acute infections, lymphocytes are high in chronic infections and eosinophils are high when a person has some allergy. Interpretation of your blood report is near normal, with slight rise in lymphocytes. There is nothing to worry. You need no medicine.

Hi I am 35 years old and have been diagnosed with diabetes and thyroid and high cholesterol levels. I have been taking a clove of garlic every morning since one month. This has reduced my cholesterol levels from 203 to 191. But still my triglycerides are on a high level of 391. My sugar levels are 134/172. TSH level is 12.63. My lever function test shows AST (SGOT) as 43 and ALT (SGPT) as 89. Does this high level of AST and ALT indicate some liver disease?

Dear lybrate-user, you are suffering from dyslipidemia with diabetes. Don't take light the syndrome you are facing. Try to avoid sugar and control your cholesterol level with tg. Try to avoid alcohol, oily spiced rich foods. Take garlic as usual, and have physical exercise in morning and evening. Control your diet and have sugar level normal, then you will be ok.
