Managing Hypertension With Healthy Habits

Here are some changes that can offer huge improvements in your high blood pressure levels:

Change your diet.

Studies have found that a low-salt (low-sodium) diet has a big benefit when it comes to lowering hypertension. Cutting back on high-sodium foods and salt at mealtimes is recommended for people with high blood pressure ? keep your daily salt consumption to less than 2,300 milligrams of salt, about equal to one teaspoon.

Get active.

Exercise is another key to management of hypertension ? 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week can really boost heart health.
Lower stress. Keeping stress under control with regular relaxation has been found to help lower high blood pressure. Allow yourself some time each day to unwind and enjoy life.

Cut out tobacco and reduce alcohol consumption.

Tobacco use and drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can contribute to high blood pressure, studies have found. If you enjoy an occasional drink, stick to a maximum of one (for women) or two (for men) drinks per day, and no tobacco.

Get to a healthy body weight.

Obesity ? even being overweight ? is a major contributor to high blood pressure. So for better management of hypertension, lose weight. The goal is a body mass index, or BMI, of between 18 and 24.9. And all of those other lifestyle changes, like a healthy diet and regular exercise, will help you achieve it.

Monitor medication usage.

If you take many medications, it's a good idea to review them with your doctor to see if any of them could be contributing to your high blood pressure or interacting with your blood pressure medications. Decongestants and other cold medications, some antidepressants, steroids, and pain relievers like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can raise blood pressure, so ask your doctor about over-the-counter drugs and any other prescriptions if you're struggling to manage hypertension.

Be vigilant about watching your blood pressure levels.

You know you have high blood pressure, so stay on top of it. Always take your medications the way that your doctor recommends, and make sure that your blood pressure is monitored frequently.

The keys to getting healthy and lowering blood pressure are in your hands. You can reduce your risk for serious health problems by making these lifestyle changes. So what are you waiting for?

My dad have high pressure. 80-140 level. please give me the solution to maintain the pressure.
To control & maintain BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes.

Dear lybtate user, - The best way to improve the damage caused by smoking is to completely stop it as it will help reverse the harmful changes which have taken place in the body over a period of time - have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, whole grains protein foods like egg, milk & milk products, healthy fats as in seafood, avocado, mixed nuts - do regular exercise, walking, jogging in fresh air for 20-30 min, also do yoga & deep breathing for 10-20 min daily morning - have 8-10 glasses of water for proper hydration & removal of toxins from the body - get a chest x-ray, blood CBC, cholesterol, sugar, ECG done to rule out any problem caused due to the effects of smoking.

Sir I am 22 yr. My height is 155 cm. Can I improve height? How to increase cholesterol? Please help me.
Hello dear High triglycerides and 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

My age is 28 years. I have been getting treatment for hypertension for last 3.5 years. Initially I was on telmisartan 40 mg then some combinations were used by doctor later I started exercise and a year ago I used to feel fainted post which doctor reduced telma dosgae to 20 mg which I hv been using for more than a year now and BP was regular during this time. But recently my BP reading was 160/100 later doctor advised to check it frequently and it was near this reading only. I got my lipid profile done and result: cholesterol was 213, triglyceride 241, HDL 38, LDL 126.8, VLDL 48.2, total cholesterol/HDL 5.60 & Non HDL 175 this report also has huge difference in lipid levels as compared to previous one done 3 months ago/which was pretty normal. Now doc has advised to take CTD-T 6.25/40 along withatorvastatin10 mg. And I am doing exercise regularly. Would I be able to go back to lower dosage of this drug or whn can I expect to not to have this medicine as it's been a long time that I am not this treatment and also do these drugs have side effect on me. Also do I need to get some more tests done?

You should control your fatty diet and exercise regularly. These figures certainly indicate you are more prone for clotting in coronary arteries.

You are having bronchial asthma, eosinophilic variety. Treatment is very simple. Avoidance of allergens or triggers which increase your symptoms and regular use of inhaler containing bronchodilator and corticosteroids is the best treatment. Safe also. Treat coexisting conditions like sinus and acid reflux.

My mother's heartbeat suddenly increases and she is also feeling some heaviness around her chest area. Actually, her hemoglobin was 6 around one month ago and doctor advised her 7 cycles of 300 mg iron injections (3 ENCIFER or OROFER S) in 200 ml normal saline. Since then, she has had five injection cycles in hospital. The last four iron injection cycles took around 2 to 2.5 hrs per cycle but fifth injection cycle was completed in approximately one hour by nurse. Also at the time of fifth injection, the canola was fixed on her wrist (since both the hands were paining as they were used for the last four cycles) and she was also told by nurse to hold the canola so that the same could not come out (but it was not the case in the last four cycles in which the canolas were fixed on hands i.e. On back side of palm). Since the application of fifth injection cycle, she was feeling heaviness in chest and now after 5 days of application of fifth injection cycle, she is saying that the heaviness has moved slightly above chest. The phenomenon of sudden increase in her pulse rate is also taking place. Today, I measure her BLOOD PRESSURE which was 135 and 62 and pulse was 98. She takes TELMIKIND40 for blood pressure daily and thyroid tablet of 75 mg daily for thyroid. Please explain, if the heaviness or sudden increase in pulse rate may be due to the fact that the fifth injection cycle was completed within one hour as compared to the last four injections (which took at least two hour each time) or is there something related to BLOOD PRESSURE which is causing heaviness and sudden increase of pulse or there may be different reasons for sudden increase in pulse and heaviness around chest area and about her present condition (can fifth iron injection given be harmful) and also what treatment should be given. I shall be extremely thankful to you.

First thing forget about 5 th injection procedure. I usually give it in one hour. Increase in heart rate is due to anxiety, worry or stress. Her bp and pulse is within normal limit. So nothing is to be done.

Mr Pritam, At 27 years you have very severe hypertension and it has to be controlled rapidly. The dose of Amlodepine 5 mg, is very low and there may be a need for additional drugs. About fasting blood sugar level of 88 mg, it is absolutely normal. There is no need to worry about that. But you BP needs to be better controlled. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions and even prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guide lines like to control BP you have to reduce daily salt intake to 2.3 g, avoid smoking and alcohol. Practice yogasanas etc.

You need to reduce your stress for it. Blood pressure fluctuates only under stress. So please try to control by yoga and meditation. And also try to have very simple food, avoid outside junk food.
