My blood pressure is increasing. What is the reason?
Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. 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 by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Plenty of fluids orally. I suggest brisk walking for 40 mins, 5 days a week. Remain stress free as much as possible. Take your medicines regularly. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Vitamin B 12 is a part of our diet and is absorbed in the gut with the help of Intrinsic Factor secreted by the stomach. Inability of body to secrete enough Intrinsic Factor causes poor absorption of B 12. This causes anaemia and neuritis. Vit D although a part of diet from non vegetarian food or fats artificially fortified with Vitamin D, it is naturally synthesized in the body in presence of sunlight. Poor exposure to Sun causes deficiency of this vitamin. The type of life we people are living nowadays, mostly keeping indoors, has contributed to this. Enjoy sunlight in the morning before noon hours when ultraviolet rays strike the body at a particular angle and save yourself from Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is mostly is due to Intrinsic factor problem hence dietary absorption is not possible. Such patients need to be given Methocobalamin a B12 isomer to replenish the deficiency. You need to take these vitamins therapeutically till the levels reach normal and then prophylactic doses should be continued for maintaining these levels.

What should be Diet  for high cholesterol patient?
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 omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I have pain in my chest. What should I do?

Hi If the pain in the chest is at a single point and worsens on taking a deep breath then it is probably a muscular injury of the chest. In this case you can take a pain killer and take some rest. If the pain in the chest is vague and spread over a larger region then you must see a doctor to rule out cardiac problem from a gastric problem.

Dear I don't suggest medicines for cholesterol. This is made in liver as per body needs. Don't disturb natural ways of body. Food doesn't alter blood cholesterol. Now creatinine level. Thus is slightly raised. Drink plenty of water so your urine is water coloured. Do this for 3 days. Repeat creatinine. If normal Be happy. Other wise call me. I will suggest you simple Ayurvedic remedy to correct this.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. What is your occupation at present? Well, your BP is still within normal limits. The increase in systolic pressure could be transient, mostly because of diet/ lifestyle issues including stress at study/ work. For the time being, I would advise you to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and other greesy/ oily & fatty foods including fast foods. A Mediterranean diet is advisable. Stay well hydrated too. Ensure that you streamline your lifestyle, with adequate room for relaxation and de-stressing. Also, you need to streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work/ study. Hope this helps. You can always meet up a general physician for clinical evaluation should you not feel well still, despite having taken the above-mentioned measures. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

What should I eat as a good diet as I have suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes?
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

My mom is 80 years old has a weak heart hence very often has water retention in her lungs and is on diuretic medication on prescription. However, since 2 weeks she has been complaining of breathlessness hence her care takers have started her on oxygen intake for 1 hour a day. My concern is does she need this or how much does she need whats the side effects. Also does living 4000 ft above sea level causes more breathing difficulty for a person in this condition. Please help.

She had worsening of heart failure thats why she required oxygen. Look for the cause like low hb, infection, or for drug compliance. Better to show her to her treating cardiologist. Oxygen requirement is temporary only.

Headache may be due to hypertension. Try avoiding high salt intake and too much of tea, coffee. Follow good lifestyle in the form of diet and exercise. Check your blood pressure regul; arly. If that doesn't help, then you can start antihypertensive medicine such as beta blockers. It may help. Do not take too much disprin, as it can be dangerous by causing gastric ulcers.
