Measuring lipids is popular but not very beneficial. Suggest you try something different and scientifically valid for preventing heart disease.

Dear lybrate-user, This kind of symptom is seen with severe acidity and indigestion. Please drink plenty of water and chew your food properly. Also, eat dinner early so there is atleast 1 hour gap from after dinner and sleep. Monitor your eating habits and in one or 2 days you should feel much better. Regards.

How does exercise affect my blood pressure? And What's my daily sodium (or salt) limit?

How does exercise affect my blood pressure? And What's my daily sodium (or salt) limit?
Brisk exercise increases BP in the start but after finishing BP slowly comes to normal.That is why a Hypertensive patient should not start brisk exercise in the starting few days.Let the BP comes to normal with medicines and then go for brisk exercises but for the time when BP is high just have a control on your diet along with medicines and just go for a normal morning or evening walks so that your daily routine is not broken.But once your BP starts coming to normal start doing Cardiovascular and Aerobic exercises which include walking, jogging, jumping rope, bicycling (stationary or outdoor), cross-country skiing, skating, rowing, high- or low-impact aerobics, swimming, and water aerobics. According yo WHO recommendations we shoul take 5 gm of salt/day but average indian consumption is 9 gm/day and if we reduce this average to 5 gm/day, we can reduce incidents of stroke by 25% and heart attacks by 10%.

Dear Lybrateuser, Increased pulse rate happens to all normal functioning people, whenever they are under Physical exertion or Mental Stress, but normally it passes away without troubling the subject. In your case the chances are anxiety is playing a negative role, since you have mentioned normal cardiac tests. It would be advisable to talk to your Psychiatrist about this issue and alternatively you can try non medicinal relaxing techniques like Yoga, Meditation. Wishing you good health.
