Hi, smoking does have an impact on bp but occasional smoking may not. It is nevertheless in your best interest that you quit smoking. Its not unusual for people of your age to get bp. The reasons could be either one, many or none at all. Sometimes, its simply essential (idiopathic) hypertension with no known cause. On the other hand, mostly, it is because of lifestyle issues and can also be attributed to stress at work/ home. It may also be owing to some underlying physical problem in your body that raises your bp. I would advise you first to consult your medicine specialist / cardiologist at the earliest. He/ she may review progress and either increase dosage or replace or add more of medications to control your bp. He/ she may also appropriately advise further diagnostics to understand the underlying cause, if any, and may also require referring you to other specialists including a nephrologist consultation. Simultaneously, you will have to check your dietary habits, especially cut down on salt, and ensure that you have a balanced diet along with fresh fruits like watermelon, mango, pineapple, apple etc which are especially beneficial for people with high bp. Bananas be best avoided. Similarly, garlic & amla too help reduce bp. However, ginger is best avoided if you are taking bp medication stamlo, as it is likely to potentiate the effect of stamlo and reduce bp considerably leading to hypotension. Ensure that you streamline your lifestyle too, with adequate room for exercise, relaxation and de-stressing. Yoga, pranayam & meditation too help relax deeply and de-stress. Ensure that you get at least 8 hours of restful sleep daily. See how you can streamline your occupational aspect as well to reduce stress at work. Hope this helps. You may still connect with me in private to discuss.

There's a higher rate of cardiac problems faced by people suffering from respiratory ailments as low levels of oxygen in blood does trigger a heart attack. Get investigation done for blockages in heart by angiography or cardiac ct scan and get him treated for blockages as there can be blockages in the brain too, causes of heart attack and stroke are same, reason for blackouts and fainting attacks. Get her checked and follow advice of your doctor.

10 HEALTHY HEART TIPS ::

A healthy lifestyle will make your heart healthier. Here are 10 things you can do to improve yours.

1) GET ACTIVE
Do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week. One way to achieve this target is by doing 30 minutes of activity on five days a week. Fit it in where you can, such as by cycling to work.

2) GIVE UP SMOKING
Smoking is one of the main causes of coronary heart disease. A year after giving up, your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.

3) MANAGE YOUR WEIGHT
Being overweight can increase your risk of heart disease. Stick to a well-balanced diet low in fat and high in fruit and vegetables, combined with plenty of physical activity.

4) DITCH THE SALT
To maintain a healthy blood pressure, stop using salt at the table and try adding less to your cooking, or cut it out completely. You'll soon get used to it. Also watch out for high salt levels in processed foods. Check the food labels – a food is high in salt if it has more than 1.5g salt (or 0.6g sodium) per 100g.

5) PLENTY OF FRUITS & VEGETABLES
Eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Add dried fruit to breakfast and add vegetables to your sauces and curries.

6) EAT OILY FISH
Eat oily fish twice a week. Fish such as mackerel, sardines, fresh tuna and salmon are an excellent source of omega-3 fats, which can help protect against heart disease.

7) WALK OFF STRESS
If you're feeling under pressure, clear your mind with a walk. It will help put your ideas in order and reduce tension. If it's a brisk walk, it will also count towards your daily activity.

8) CUT DOWN ON SATURATED FATS
Small changes to your diet can have positive health benefits. Choose semi-skimmed over full-fat milk, leaner cuts of meat, and steam or grill foods rather than frying. Find out the facts about fat.

9) REDUCE ALCOHOL INTAKE
Alcohol can be fattening. If you added three or four gin and tonics to your usual daily diet, you could put on nearly 2kg over four weeks.

10) READ THE FOOD LABEL PROPERLY
When shopping, look at the food label on food packets to see what the product contains. Understanding what is in food will help you make healthier choices.

Reduce intake of salt. Stop eating packaged products. They have high added sodium as preservative. Stress induced hypertension requires exercises and let go attitude. Get thorough check up for pathological causes. Treatment will focus the right cause.

Hyderabad has good hospitals. Age 70 is no setback criteria about evading heart surgery. Technology is advanced & grafts of blood vessels taken from elsewhere like own leg/arm are fitted during bypass surgery and these'new' blood vessels bypass the affected areas and supply blood to healthy areas of heart to make it function like'near' normal. Heart has innumerable hidden blood vessels which do not function and are called collaterals. During crisis, these collateral blood vessels open up and start functioning giving additional blood to heart. Have a heart and take 70 years old person for bypass surgery with positive mind and boosting his morale. A person admitted with will power to recover comes out after surgery as stronger because recovery is quicker.

How are less cholesterol?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

How are less  cholesterol?
Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. 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 .

Stroke
If you’ve had a stroke in the past, tell your dentist if you are taking anticoagulants (blood-thinning drugs). These medications could result in excessive bleeding during some oral surgery procedures.

If your stroke has impaired your ability to produce an adequate amount of saliva, your dentist may recommend the use of artificial saliva. If your stroke has affected your face, tongue, or dominant hand and arm, your dentist may also recommend use of fluoride gels, modified brushing or flossing techniques, and strategies others can use to assist you in maintaining good oral hygiene.

YOu can check pulse by feeling the radial artery. Very heavy exercise is called vigourous . Vigorous intensity aerobic exercise is where you're breathing hard and fast and your heart rate has increased significantly. If you're working at this level, you won't be able to say more than a few words without pausing for a breath.
