Types of High Blood Pressure
=======================
High blood pressure comes in many different types. Each type depends both on the cause of the high blood pressure and how the high blood pressure can be treated. When describing these types, doctors often use the word 'hypertension' instead of 'high blood pressure. Because of this, when talking about the types, I will use the word 'hypertension' also.

Types of Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

Essential Hypertension
-----------------------------
is the most common type. There is no specific and underlying cause for essential hypertension. Lifestyle factors and other risk factors all increase a person's chance of getting essential hypertension.
Secondary Hypertension
--------------------------------
is caused by another health condition such as diabetes, kidney problems or tumors. Once the other condition is controlled, blood pressure usually returns to normal.
White Coat Hypertension
---------------------------------
is caused by a person's anxiety or stress levels being very high. Some people get anxious each time they see the doctor and have blood pressure readings higher than normal.
Isolated Systolic Hypertension
---------------------------------------------
is hypertension in which only the systolic (upper) reading is high. This occurs in people over age 65 and is caused by a hardening of the arteries.
Labile Hypertension
---------------------------
is when a person's blood pressure changes often. These changes can be caused by emotions or stress.
Malignant hypertension
------------------------------
is a rare form of hypertension that is an emergency situation. Symptoms set in very quickly and there is a risk ofseizures, stroke of even death.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your problem could be due to musculoskeletal disorder as you drive for a long time daily - do regular exercises of the upper body, also spinal stretches, take a few minutes break from your constant position while driving every hour - take medication as advised by your doctor - also can consult a physical therapist for relief of pain by exercise.

Cholesterol component needs to be managed not only through medicines but with lifestyle changes. Start practicing yoga daily for 45 minutes and brisk walk for 30 minutes. This will increase your hdl and reduce your ldl (bad cholesterol. Also eat fresh warm food, avoid pizzas and fast food. Avoid non veg too. Adequate 7-8 hours of good sleep is equally important.

It is better to meed a good Cardiologist to get a proper full examination. You treatment will depend on many things. Sometimes, medicines are enough to help and sometimes surgery is required. This platform can make many suggestions, but considering you problem, it is better for you to meet a cardiologist. Go to AIIMS like hospital.

At 36 if you had a heart attack followed by stent therapy , take it as a warning to make lifestyle changes , yes you have to take some medicines for life like If BP/ Sugar is high , control with help of medicines , if you are given blood thinners like Aspirin & medicines to reduce cholestrol like statins- doctors are divided on this , My own suggestion is take nature in your stride and do not take above medicines for life due to side effects on liver/ kidney/ tendency to bleed more from any site from brain to stomach. Reduce cholesterol by eating less of diet rich in bad fats like fried items, do take good fats like a katori of nuts , all variety like few soaked and peeled almonds . cashew nuts , wallnuts , pistachios , peanuts or even just peanuts. eat more seasonal fruits & vegetables both raw and cooked with very little fat. Remember no oil is Zero cholesterol as advertised on TV, use mustered oil and thick based iron karahi with cover to cook food through steam, not through frying. Use tomato puree to thicken the gravies. Walk a lot , this is the simplest exercise , Avoid smoke and pollution as low levels of oxygen in air can trigger a heart attack. Remain stress free , get Lipid profile and Echo test done at least once in a year and If you are Symptom free , Do not Remind yourself again and again that You are a Cardiac patient .

It is saying that there is some pathology developed in the lower zone of lung. Opacity over that area is the pathology. Now exactly what is it, can be confirmed by CT Scan only. By that time as your father to have more and more warm water. Warm water helps to increase the immunity of body. Take care. :)

Ok user don't worry. First of all don't take any medicine in sec if it is harming your health. Leave that. Health is more important don't take any risk and don't take your life ruthlessly. Take 1/4spoon dalchin powder with water. Drink more and more water walk more have fruits and vegetables more. Don't take any medicine. Cover your head under sun. Most important don't take any stress. Eat well live well take care.

I have chest pain and cough over 5 years is there any solution for this. I smoke ciggarates.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I have chest pain and cough over 5 years is there any solution for this. I smoke ciggarates.
I hope it is a regular chest pain and cough. But you never know with you smoking and all. You msut visit a doctor and examine teh chest pain to see that you are not developing some cardiac problem. Whatever happens the smoking must stop. It is very bad habit and if these symptoms are connected to the habit, this may hopefully be the last of your smoking. Please do some of the following as you condition improves:Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hello Coversyl plus is for your blood pressure and has no effects on your triglycerides. Triglycerides per say individually is a risk factor for future heart problem, stroke, pancreatic and should be treated. My recommendation would be 1) you should lose some weight as according to your height, you are 8-10 kgs overweight 2) diet would be the key, though you would know the do's /don't, smaller meals 4-5 times will help i'm decreasing triglycerides. 3) supplement like omega 3 fatty acid 1-2 gm a day 4) if still higher medication like statin / fenofibrate would be the medication of choice depending on your detailed lipid profile.

She is a heart patient. What is the reason of heart attack? And how can a person prevent it.
Hi, When the blood supply is cut off to the cardiac muscles due to blockage in the coronary vessels, heart attack occurs. Please follow these tips to avoid heart attacks: - Work out everyday (yoga or gym) or walk for 1 hour daily. -Avoid excessive intake of sweets, oil fried food, excessive intake of carbohydrates. - Take high fibre diet. - Check your lipid profile once in 6 months and sugar levels once in 3 months. - Undergo stress test (TMT) once in a year - Avoid sedentary life style and be active. - Do not put on weight - Use heart friendly cooking oil like rice bran oil, olive oil, etc - Avoid mental tension and worries.
