I am taking psychiatry meds gor ocd and hypertension from last 7 years. My ocd is fine now. Blood pressure is high at times. I want to start gymming and take whey protein to build muscles. Last time I joined gym, I didn't use protein and lost a lot of muscle mass resulting in fatigue and tiredness. Can I take protein daily along with my ongoing meds? I feel tired all day.

You can take proteins which are accpetable and not those given in gyms as they might contain small doses of steroids which will worsen your hypertension. All what is your BP, get it also treated apart from OCD.

Dear lybrate-user, no doctor wants to operate the patient when sugar is high. You've to check fasting, post lunch sugar and hba1c and visit a diabetologist in your area who'll decide about the line of treatment appropriate to your mom's profile. Doctor may suggest insulin for a short period. Also monitor bp with home machine and remember to inform the doctor if mom is taking aspirin. Aspirin needs to be stopped 2 days prior to surgery until one day post surgery. Regards.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

high cholesterol is risky for heart. 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 .

There are other effective, safe and economical non-invasive, non-surgical options like Artery Clearance Therapy (ACT) / Chelation therapy and External Counter Pulsation (ECP/EECP) for patients unfit for heart bypass surgery or angioplasty stents, where these have failed, when there is recurrence after surgery or stents get blocked again and for patients who want to avoid surgery.
