Mr Anthony, Looking at the details given, it appears that the kidney function is good. Even on one kidney a person can live a normal life. As regards her BP if it is in control with cilindipine continue the same. Her sugar levels are high. Fasting 114 mg is marginally high. Whereas after food levels is definitely too high, suggesting a need for taking proper anti diabetic medication. Ayurvedic drugs do not bring the sugar levels to normal. After food level is taken after 2 h of food. If it is above 200 mg, signifies diabetes. Please understand various conditions which she has are not curable, they can only be controlled with proper medication. So continue the treatment. If kidney function does go down then dialysis is the option.

I have both high blood pressure and diabetes. What should I eat?

I have both high blood pressure and diabetes. What should I eat?
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. 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.

Get basic tests for heart done-ecg, echo, stress tests and blood for sugar, lipids do not let others to affect you to the extent that you develop stress pain, chest pain etc. Develop self confidence and remain aloof and focused on your job at hand rather than being in a crowd and getting fears of a heart disease. Do get back here with reports. You are 19 years old teenager and hopefully the reports will be normal and take away the doubts but lots of good habits of healthy eating and exercise, studies, jobs later and a purposeful life etc you have to inculcate now to stay with you for life.

Dear lybrate user, your blood pressure seems to be on the higher side, but one reading is not sufficient to make a conclusive diagnosis of hypertension. Additional details like history, weight, height, lifestyle, etc are also important. It is important you consult a physician privately, which will enable the particular doctor to prescribe you specific treatment after checking your blood pressure. Meanwhile, you could observe the following to help improve your blood pressure: - Sleep well at least 6-7 hrs everyday. Do not get stressed about issues. - Drink less coffee and tea, quit smoking - Eat less salt, less processed foods (papad, pickles, noodles, etc.) - Eat small meals (preferably home-cooked) at regular timings everyday Get well soon!

Hi lybrate-user, these are withdrawal symptoms of alcohol and ciggerate smoking. Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can vary widely in severity. In severe cases, the condition can be life-threatening. Symptoms may occur from two hours to four days after stopping alcohol. They may include headaches, nausea, tremors, anxiety, hallucinations and seizures. In many cases, alcohol withdrawal requires medical treatment and hospital admissions. Medications may be used to treat physical symptoms while counselling and support groups help with controlling drinking behavior. So I suggest you consult a psychiatrist for medication and consult a psychologist for psychotherapy- relapse prevention. All the best.

You should go for ECG to rule out any cardiac problem. But I don't think it is a cardiac problem. It might be due to cervical so also consult a nearby orthopaedic

My dad is suffering with heart problem. Already he has suggested to use stunts and then bypass.
It has to be either stent or bypass, not both, if 1 vessel is blocked, stent is the answer, if more blocks, bypass surgery is solution that lasts for a long years, with advancement in technology, mortality rate is less than 1 %

Just monitor your ldl level every 3 months and if it continues to be more than 130 mg you may start drugs after consulting a doctor. The medication needs to be taken lifelong to provide protection from cardiovascular disease.
