You do not need to worry much about it. Maintain healthy lifestyle which means doing regular physical exercise, morning walk for at least 30 mins for at least 4 days a week. You can join gym also. Avoid stress. While having meal, restrict amount of carbohydrates (rice, sugar, mangoes, banana) and fat (oils, butter, mutton) and take plenty of green leafy vegetables. Do check your blood pressure after 2 months. Wish you good health.

Sir; I wanted to know what are the main reasons for increase in the cholesterol level in the body?
Cholesterol level increases due to increased production and decreased burning by body. If you eat lots of unhealthy junk foods or fat rich foods then your body converts them to cholesterol. Similarly if you don't burn your fat by exercise then they tend to accumulate. There are other causes also. But these are simplest of explanations.

Dear lybrateuser, -it is good to be active & keep yourself busy as you are but in my opinion you should cut down a little on your tennis time as it may be putting a little strain on your heart as tennis is a hectic game, keep sometime for a walk which will cool you down after the game as well as be beneficial to you -spare sometime in the morning for meditation & deep breathing as they help to reduce stress & keep the mind & body relaxed -consult your cardiologist for further investigations, like tmt test, echocardiography, to asses your cardiac status & prescribe requisite treatment.

I feel little bit of uneasiness in left chest portion my age is 36 years what need to be done.
If along with uneasiness in left chest, you feel pain in left hand, particularly on inner side and inner 2 and half fingers (little finger, ring finger and lower half of middle finger) you may have heart problem (coronary artery disease) and you need to get investigate by tread-meal test. Usually uneasiness is due to muscular aches or gastric problems but as males are subjected to lot of stress, tension and competition and lack protective estrogen, they become prone to coronary artery diseases after 40 years (though now a days it is occurring in genetically susceptible young adults too), you should get yourself checked by a cardiologist or you may undergo comprehensive cardiac health check-up available in most of hospitals now a days specially on Sundays for a nominal discounted coat ranging from Rs3000-6000/- which includes full blood check-up, diabetic profile, liver function tests, kidney function tests, pulmonary function tests, treadmill test, echo cardiogram, ultrasound of abdomen, chest x-ray, rectal examination, examination and consultation by a surgeon, consultation by a cardiologist and consultation with dietician.

What are the causes of high blood pressure? And what are the effects of it in our body?

What are the causes of high blood pressure? And what are the effects of it in our body?
Dear lybrate-user, high blood pressure is many times a symptom of underlying disease. You can visualize heart as a pump which is pumping blood (viscous liquid) across the body. It supplies the brain where it pumps against gravity. Similarly it also receives the blood from the legs which is again against gravity. In this closed circulation the blood vessels allow the gases like oxygen and carbondioxide and some liquid to pass through the membrane along with nutrients and waste products to and from various tissues. Blood pressure increases 1. The heart has to pump with higher intensity due to a blockage which restricts the blood supply to a critical organ including the brain and heart. 2. Blood vessels become narrow due to constriction or fat and calcified plaques deposited. 3. Certain hormones (chemicals) secreted by the kidneys and other organs cause the blood vessels to contract. 4. Stress which releases enzymes that increase blood pressure. 5. Electrolytes like sodium levels increase the osmotic pressure thereby increasing the volume of blood and thus blood pressure. It is mainly due to an underline endocrine disease. Considering these five points we need to investigate understand and try to address the cause by symptomatically managing the blood pressure. High blood pressure has multiple effects on to the body especially on small blood vessels which can burst (bleed) in brain, eyes and other organs. It also increases the risk of pushing a clot into the brain as well as damaging the blood vessel itself. The cholesterol and other lipids which circulate in the blood get pushed towards the walls of the vessel due to high blood pressure thereby increasing the risk of atherosclerosis. In short high blood pressure is a serious entity needs to be addressed objectively.

Depending on the reason for your low blood pressure, you may be able to take certain steps to help reduce or even prevent symptoms. Some suggestions include: Drink more water, less alcohol. Alcohol is dehydrating and can lower blood pressure, even if you drink in moderation. Water, on the other hand, combats dehydration and increases blood volume. Follow a healthy diet. Get all the nutrients you need for good health by focusing on a variety of foods, including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean chicken and fish. If your doctor suggests using more salt but you don't like a lot of salt on your food, try using natural soy sauce or adding dry soup mixes to dips and dressings. Go slowly when changing body positions. You may be able to reduce the dizziness and lightheadedness that occur with low blood pressure on standing by taking it easy when you move from a prone to a standing position. Before getting out of bed in the morning, breathe deeply for a few minutes and then slowly sit up before standing. Sleeping with the head of your bed slightly elevated also can help fight the effects of gravity. If you begin to get symptoms while standing, cross your thighs in a scissors fashion and squeeze, or put one foot on a ledge or chair and lean as far forward as possible. These maneuvers encourage blood to flow from your legs to your heart. Eat small, low-carb meals. To help prevent blood pressure from dropping sharply after meals, eat small portions several times a day and limit high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Your doctor also may recommend drinking caffeinated coffee or tea with meals to temporarily raise blood pressure. But because caffeine can cause other problems, check with your doctor before drinking more caffeinated beverages
