My husband has b.p. 150/100. What it indicates. What precautions should be taken. please tell.
Ideally the bp should be between 110/70 to 120/80. And 130/90 is considered as borderline or beginning of hypertension. Precaution o be taken: eat less salt, eat high fiber diet with lots of fruits and vegetables. Avoid junk food, refined and packaged food as they have lots of salt and fats and artificial preservatives. Exercise 1-2 hrs daily. Do yoga and pranayam at least 5 days a week. (learn from experts to maximise the benefits. Stop or avoid alcohol, tobacco and other intoxicants. Keep checking bp regularly. Start treatment if it remains high in spite of all these precautions.

Hello lybrate-user, the ideal weight determined by your height and for you falls around 80 we have to understand that losing weight is 80 % diet and 20 % exercise. By all means you have to change your diet and decrease your overall calorie intake to lose weight. A recheck on his diet plan should help. Some general things you should follow to lose weight and control his blood pressure are. 1) try maintaining blood pressure upper under 135 and lower under 85mm hg with lifestyle and medication 2) if overweight, losing weight should be a priority, try achieving bmi less than 25 3) 40-45 mins of aerobic exercise daily 4) be regular with your medication, don't skip doses or stop abruptly. 5) in diet -low salt. Max 3 gms a day. - avoid preserved food as all preservatives have salt. - no pickles, papads, chips, farsan as all have high salt and. - atleast 2 serving of fresh fruits in a day. - 1 serving 35-40 gms of nuts like walnuts, almond to be included - if you take fish 2 serving of fatty fish per will like salmon. -avoid red meat, egg yellow, fried and spicy oily food - may shift to better oils like olive in cooking 6) may consider supplements, like cod fish oil capsules, flax seeds, chia seeds, krill oil as they have good content of omega 3 fatty also losing weight is a slow process, by holistic approach of diet and exercise you will loose weight permanently and so you should encourage him to continue an healthy lifestyle. Do continue medication for hypertension as you are taking and if no, keep a tab on the pressure reading and consider starting one after ruling out other secondary causes of hypertension. Also get you sugars, cholesterol and thyroid checked once. Medication for decreasing weight are not effective and may cause side effects. As you are young you not morbidly overweight you may follow diet and exercise, if still unsuccessful we would consider starting one.

My son is 3.7 years old and having large vsd. And doctor said he is not opera-table so tell me what I have to do?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ranchi
Hello large vsd can lead to pulmonary hypertension. In case of even large vsd with pulmonary hypertension I recommend to go for surgery till 9 months to 1 year of age. Till this age the pulmonary hypertension is usually reversible and improves over a period of time. After that one should go for o2 study or cath study before labelling the vsd as inoperable. I have seen many a case in which surgeons have refused to operate even when operability is there. I shall be better able to help you out if you send me the echo report or cath study if done. Regards.

Dear lybrate-user, namaskar, there is nothing unusual. In later stage of pregnancy when the uterus becomes heavy, it imparts pressure on the inferior vena cava (carrying blood from the legs to the heart) which causes hindrance in blood drainage from the lower limbs. Will settle after parturition. Meanwhile. She must avoid dependent position of the legs and keep them elevated on pillows at night and rest hours. And do simple exercises of the feet and knees. Take care.

Congestive Heart Failure - Factors that Make it Fatal

Fellowship in Electrophysiology, Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology, DM - Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Congestive Heart Failure - Factors that Make it Fatal

Our survival is solely reliant on the working of the heart. It is this that makes the prospect of a heart failure so fatal and so terrifying. Notwithstanding what the heart evokes, a heart failure is not indicative of a defunct heart; but only a situation when the heart pumps weaker than what is generally deemed as natural. Consequently, the blood flows at a slower rate to the heart and the body that in turn increases pressure in the heart. The oxygen that is produced by the heart in such a scenario is scanty and insufficient for the body.

body responds with its own defense mechanism, as the heart, in an attempt to hold more blood, stretches its chambers. Though this strenuous effort may keep the blood moving, it would gradually and inevitably weary the heart with all the effort. Subsequently, the kidney responds by retaining more salt and fluid in the body. These fluids may accumulate in different parts of the body, mainly in the legs, feet, ankles leading to congestion in the body. This very condition in medical terminology is referred to as congestive heart failure. 

Different causes can contribute to the onset of such a fatal condition. Some of them are

  1. Coronary artery disease: In such a condition, the arteries supply insufficient amount of oxygen and blood to the heart. Subsequently, the heart receives scanty amount of nutrients and oxygen.
  2. Heart attack: The sudden, unanticipated blockage of the coronary artery and the ensuing stoppage of the flow of the blood lead to a heart attack. The heart muscles are damaged in such a case and prevent the proper functioning.
  3. Diseases: Though the term may be generic and over expansive, most of the ailments which people suffer from tend to manifest themselves by posing a potential threat to the functioning of the heart. A high blood pressure, kidney disease, even a thyroid disease can cause congestive heart failure.

Every disorder is preceded by certain symptoms, and congestive heart failure is no different. Some of them are

  1. Fatigue: This is one of the most perceptible symptoms of congestive heart failure. One of the earliest premonitions of an impending heart failure is a nagging sense of weariness and lethargy.
  2. Swelling: As the condition is characterized by accumulation and build-up of fluids in various part of the body, swelling is an inevitable symptom of this condition and a clear indication of the ailment.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

If a person suffering from heart attack suddenly then what should we have to do at that instant that it would easily taken to hospital and what are the precautions at that time ?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
If you think someone is having a heart attack: have the person sit down, rest, and try to keep calm. Loosen any tight clothing. Ask if the person takes any chest pain medication for a known heart condition, such as nitroglycerin, and help them take it. If the pain does not go away promptly with rest or within 3 minutes of taking nitroglycerin, call for emergency medical help. If the person is unconscious and unresponsive, call 911 (or your local emergency number), then begin cpr. If an infant or child is unconscious and unresponsive, perform 1 minute of cpr, then call 911. Do not do not leave the person alone except to call for help, if necessary. Do not allow the person to deny the symptoms and convince you not to call for emergency help. Do not wait to see if the symptoms go away. Do not give the person anything by mouth unless a heart medication (such as nitroglycerin) has been prescribed.

How to prevent cholesterol. please help me?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How to prevent cholesterol. please help me?
Finding the Best High Cholesterol Treatment There's a lot of variability in how high cholesterol treatments work in a given person. Treatment that did wonders for your spouse may do nothing for you. Some of it depends on your genes. You and your doctor will need to come up with a custom-tailored approach. For most people, the first high cholesterol treatment to try is three lifestyle changes: Eating better Maintaining (or losing) weight Exercising more Some people, if they already have other risk factors -- such as diabetes -- may immediately start medication as well. While lifestyle changes can really help bring your cholesterol down, Wong says that not enough people give them a real chance. "The problem is that both patients and their doctors like immediate results," he tells WebMD. "Lowering your cholesterol with exercise and diet is just not like that." So try to give high cholesterol lifestyle treatments time to work. If they do, you can avoid the hassle of being on a daily medicine for the rest of your life.

Hello. If you are not habituated to this kind of routine or when there is some internal problem in your body, it responds like this only. Management: Always keep yourself well hydrated even in between the walks. As dehydration leads to cramps and muscular spasm. Maintain daily intake of healthy food specially of fruits, green vegetables, nuts, flaxseeds which contains omega-3 fatty acids for healthy tissues, milk, milk products and eggs which are supposed to be complete food they contain protein, vitamins and minerals which are required for wear and tear. Also, take enough of rest which helps in rejuvenation of whole body! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both thrice daily for 4 weeks.

Please try the following: Eat a very light dinner without spices, fried foods and no foods that are acidic and heavy to digest (non-veg, rajma, chole, besan bhaji etc) Chew your food slowly and make sure you drink plenty of water. Make sure you have eaten dinned at least 2 hours before sleeping and preferably by 830 pm. His will reduce the pressure on your stomach and digestion before you sleep. During the day, make sure you are drinking plenty of water. This will help wash out acidity in few days. Get a lot of walking exercise and try deep breathing. These should help you. In case there is no change in health, you may have to undertake few investigations like abdominal sonography and endoscopy to determine extent of ailment. Do let us know how you feel in few days.

I am suffering from cholesterol from 2 years and I want to know that is I m in risk of heart related diseases?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
I am suffering from cholesterol from 2 years and I want to know that is I m in risk of heart related diseases?
high cholesterol is risky for heart. 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.
