Pulmonary hypertension is a medical condition that arises when the blood pressure remains consistently high in the vessels of the lungs. This condition can develop from a completely unrelated medical condition and is more prevalent among women.
Pulmonary Hypertension can be a hard disease to diagnose. While it has no permanent cure, the medication depends on how far the disease has advanced. From group 1 PAH to group 5 PAH, pulmonary hypertension has 5 stages of advancement.
Here is a list of 10 ways by which this disease can be kept under control along with the prescribed medication:
- Quit smoking: Smoking aggravates pulmonary hypertension. It has adverse effects on both the heart and the lung. It is therefore of utmost importance to quit smoking. If you fail to control your urge of smoking, contact your doctor who can suggest a quitting plan.
- Avoid high altitude: Patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension should avoid flying and living at high altitude. An altitude of 8000 feet and above can worsen the symptoms. It is therefore suggested that you do not take flights for travelling or come down below the altitude of 2428 meters if you are living in hilly areas.
- A healthy diet: A healthy diet consisting of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meat and whole grains should be consumed on a daily basis. A nutritious diet goes a long way in keeping pulmonary hypertension in check.
- Adequate rest: A minimum of 8 hours of sleep is recommended for patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension. A good night’s sleep and frequent naps keeps fatigue at bay.
- Pregnancy and birth control pills: Avoiding pregnancy is a must for patients suffering from this disease. Pregnancy can be life threatening for the both the baby and the mother. Birth control pills should be avoided as well. It greatly increases the chance of blood clots.
- Maintain a steady blood pressure: Any activities that lower the blood pressure should be avoided by all means. Spending too much time in a bathtub or prolonged stress increases the chances fainting.
- Become more active: Patients of pulmonary hypertension often run out of breath with little to no activity. While activities such as weight lifting should be strictly avoided, some exercise or daily jogging can fetch good result in keeping a patient healthy.
- Get vaccine on time: Doctors often suggest vaccines if the patient suffers from pneumonia or influenza. It should be ensured that such vaccines are taken on time. For patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension, prolonged exposure to diseases such as pneumonia can wreak havoc.
- Regular checkup: Regular follow up with the doctor is of prime importance. Any possible side effects or deterioration can be arrested with constant supervision.
- On time medication: Patients of pulmonary hypertension should ensure that all the medicines suggested by the doctor are taken at regular intervals as per prescribed dosage. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

Hello Doctors, respect and thanks in advance for commenting on my query, I am sure I will get an ‘expert’ advise eventually. Well, my mother is 58 years old weighing 62 kgs. She is a diabetic (no insulin injection) and her sugar reports are as follows:- Plasma Glucose (F) – 124 and Plasma Glucose (P.P) – 201 mg/dl. She is also a heart patient, she gets tired (haapti hain aur paseena aataa hain) after walking for 1-2 kilometres and we are visiting a cardiologist every 3 months from last 12 years. Her current HEART medicines are Valent 40, Tide 5 Mg, Tide 10 mg, xplode tab, Asomex 2.5 mg, tonact 10 mg, Glycomet 250 mg and rivotril 0.5 mg. As per recent 2D echo test, her heart’s efficiency is 35%. Our regular cardiologist says, she has to take these medicines for lifelong with no option. My mom is scared of Angiography and says she don’t want to take chances with her life with this test due to her fear. Our reason to worry these days is different, she is getting tingling, tickling or prickling sensation experienced in her hands at regular intervals from last 10-12 days, I believe medical term is “Paresthesia”. I am tensed and I really want to take preventive measures for my mom due to this unusual and regular sensation. Simultaneously I also want to get her treated “permanently” from this heart disease. Can all experts please comment, firstly on “Paresthesia” and then on permanent freedom from this heart medicines / disease? Which type of tests I should do first (full body check up) or which type of doctor shall I see on priority, if required?

I'm 41 years old male, recently diagnosed with hypertension (150/100). Doc put me on Hypertension medicines for a week and after a few tests (ECG, TMT, abdomen USG etc.) noted that" test ve for exercise induced myocardial ischemia" and prescribed blood thinners and cholesterol medicines along with Hypertension medicines. I have my doubts about the TMT, as I have neither run out of breath not experienced any pain in chest, I stopped only due to sweating at third stage of TMT difficulty setting and after a 6 minutes. Kindly advice me if I can go for another TMT test and should I start taking Blood Thinners (heard a lot about the side effects and life long dependency) or is there a way my case can be re-examined.
