Dear lybrate-user Thanks for sharing your concern. Generally BP medicines are given for long time or lifelong. It's not necessary. But to be on safe side doctors advice to continue the medication. Yes you can stop your BP medicine, but with few thing to keep in mind. Follow the thumb rule to maintain your BP with lifestyle medicine. 1) Monitor your BP regularly say every week. 2) Eat low Sodium salt (avoid pickles, salty wafers, canned food) 3) Eat Potassium rich food (Ripe Banana, Black Grapes, Red bell pepper, Radish,onion, etc) on regular basis. 3) Drink at least 3 to 4 ltrs of slight cold water. 4) Do regular Cardio vascular exercises (walking and cycling. Avoid jogging, skipping rope) 30 mins daily 5. Do deep breathing exercises for 5 mins after your cardio exercise.

Eif is found in 3-5% of pregnancies and babies are born with no congenital defects of heart, so cheer up and go for delivery with a positive unaffceted mind.

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. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

My brother who is suffering from low BP please tell me what is the cause or reason of low blood pressure.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS

Lack of nutrients in your diet. A lack of the vitamins B-12 and folate can cause a condition in which your body doesn't produce enough red blood cells (aneamia), causing low blood pressure.

Hi, I am 38 male years old I have bp
Past 3 years how to control bp?
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.

You probably won’t need to have the cherry angioma treated, but you do have options if you want it removed for cosmetic reasons, or if you need it removed because it is in an area that is easily bumped, which can lead to regular bleeding.

How can we know about heart attack and what I do to present heart attack.
Heart is a pump. It needs fuel 24+7. There are blood vessels carrying blood to your heart. If there is a major block then heart attack could occur, and it could result in irreversible damage to the heart. High cholesterol. High b. P. Lack of exercise could lead to heart attacks.

Hello- Here are 6 Dietary and Lifestyle Tips To Lower Bad Cholestrol Levels. 1. Limit your intake of foods full of saturated fats, trans fats, and dietary cholesterol. Best Choice: Omega-3-rich fish, such as salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, and trout. Choose at least 2 times weekly. If you’re using canned fish, such as canned sardines, select very-low-sodium or no-salt-added varieties. Good Choice: Most other fish, plus shelled mollusks (clams, oysters, mussels, scallops). Satisfactory Choices: Crustaceans (shrimp, crab, lobster, crawfish), Poultry (white meat, skinless) Game Meat (bison, venison, elk, ostrich), optimally free-range and grass-fed Poor Choice: Red meat (beef, pork, lamb, veal, goat). For all red meat choices, select cuts that are under 30% fat. 2. Eat a lot more fiber-rich foods (especially soluble fiber from foods like beans, oats, barley, fruits, and vegetables). 3. Choose protein-rich plant foods (such as legumes or beans, nuts, and seeds) over meat. 4. Lose as much excess weight as possible. 5. Take ayurvedic supplements (Arogyawardhini vati, Liporid etc). 6. Avoid sleeping in day time.

Get your thyroid profile done, both high and low thyroid lead to hair loss, local infection like dandruff makes the base of hair follicles weak. Use ketoconazole shampoo, regularly for a week, the skin of scalp is not different from face, it does sweat, get infected due to extra oils of glands near the upper layer of skin (sebatious glands) eat less bad fats, eat some good fats like a katori of assorted nuts for good fats and good proteins & minerals. Drink milk & curds for calcium and proteins. Reduce salt, sugar to bare minimum. Cover your head with a cotton hankey to absorb sweat and then wear helmet. If your job is stressful, do yoga, meditation and simple walks as hair loss is reported due to excess stress. Some home remedy to cleanse scalp before regular shampoo. Apply either of these an hour before on scalp- curd/ vinegar/ apple cider vinegar/ lemon juice. Get back here with reports of thyroid and sugar levels.

Hi. If you become unconscious or feel dizzy, then it is low bp problem. Otherwise, just bp in lower range with no above said problems, then that bp is considered normal. Infact the lower the bp, the better it is. You need to eat fruits, green vegetable and all healthy things to get your hemoglobin up. Take care.
