Normally people who have hypertension crave for salt. I have hypertension managed with medication but, I don't crave for salt and my entire family has to add salt to their portions of the cooked food which has less of it because of my less craving. How come?

Not all hypertensives crave for salty food and it is advised to take less salt as sodium in table salt is not good pressure

What is tha difference between symptoms of a heart attack in women versus a heart attack in men ?
Not much but women have more tolerance to pain, heart attack pain can be confused with acidity by them and there is a delay in taking women to a hospital suspected of a heart attack. Typical symptoms of heart attack are chest pain on left side radiating towards left arm.

Mr. Lybrate-user, all your lipids, creatinine and blood sugar values look absolutely fine, quite normal. But tsh level is high, falls in the category of subclinical hypothyroidism, particularly if t4 values are low. (which have not been mentioned) so there is nothing to worry right now.

Yes it's risky. But take as soon as you remember. However we have successful management of slowly introducing pure herbals for HTN and after initial adjustments of two months, regime is fixed and periodically reviewed to leave chemical drugs for ever.

How to control high blood pressure if it occurs immediately and no medical facility is available.

How to control high blood pressure if it occurs immediately and no medical facility is available.
Hi. Sudden rise in blood pressure, if no medical facility is available, you should calm down first. Be relaxed and silent and avoid any king of physical activity. Ask for someone to come and help you, arrange ambulance or other means and transfer to nearest hospital or clinic. This is best. Avoid smoking, smoke, coffee tea or any other food till you see a doctor. Take care.

Electrical System of the Heart: Effects and Causes

DM - Cardiology, MD - General Medicine, MBBS
Cardiologist, Jaipur
Electrical System of the Heart: Effects and Causes

The heart's electrical conduction system plays a very important role in cardiovascular functioning. Also known as the atrioventricular (AV) conduction system, it regulates and controls the timing of the heartbeat.

How does the heart's electrical conduction system work?

There is a collection of electrical cells in the upper right atrium of the heart known as the sinoatrial (SA) node which acts as a natural pacemaker and generates electrical signals. These signals travel through specialized electrical pathways and stimulate the muscular walls of the heart to contract in a rhythmic manner. This gives rise to the heartbeat that pulses at a specific frequency every minute.

What is the effect of fluctuations in electrical activity on the heart?

The standard heart rate in human being ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. It slows down when a person sleeps and speeds up when one experiences physical or emotional heightening. These fluctuations are triggered by the brain or other systems of the body and signal the SA node to generate charges more rapidly or slowly. This leads to spikes and drops in the heart rate, depending on the nature of the situation.

What happens when there is dysfunction in the heart's electrical activity?

When the heart's electrical conduction system does not function properly, it leads to the occurrence of a condition known as arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. This happens when electrical impulses are generated in an irregular manner and causes tachycardia (rapid heartbeats) or bradycardia (slow heartbeats) which takes place in jarring infrequent tempos.

What causes fluctuations in the heart's electrical activity?

There are various kinds of triggers that cause the heart rate to fluctuate. The exact nature of fluctuation also depends on the type of trigger. A few everyday examples of these causes are as follows:

  • Exercise and strenuous physical activity increases electrical activity as the heart is required to beat faster so as to increase the supply of blood and oxygen to the muscles.
  • Sleep and rest reduce heart rate as the body is not needed to exert itself.
  • Release of adrenaline into the bloodstream causes the heart rate to spike up.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Yesterday night after dinner I was sitting and there was a sharp pain on the left side of chest for just 1 second but it got me anxious and nervous and sweaty and fear. I get this fear and anxious thoughts in the morning and night not in the afternoon and evening. Though I have done 2 ecg and 1 echo test which came normal I get worries about heart only. What could be reason for this? And in morning I have nausea too.

4 Types Of Hypertensions Pregnant Women May Face

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology

4 Types Of Hypertensions Pregnant Women May Face

Hypertension or high blood pressure is common in pregnant women, even in those who have no previous history of high blood pressure. This leads to complications in about 6 to 10% of all pregnancies around the world. High blood pressure may develop before or after conception and as such needs special medical attention.

Hypertension prevents sufficient flow of blood to the placenta and this inhibits the normal growth of the fetus. This could result in low birth weight of the child. However, if diagnosed in time and treated properly, hypertension does not affect the child's health too much. There are various types of hypertension during pregnancies, such as:

  1. Gestational hypertension: This type of hypertension is developed about 20 weeks after conception. There is no abnormality in urine or any signs of other organ damage (as is common with hypertension during pregnancy) but the condition can worsen and complicate very quickly. Pregnant women below the age of 20 and above the age of 40 are often diagnosed with high levels of blood pressure. Women who have heart or kidney conditions before pregnancy and women carrying more than one child are also likely to develop gestational hypertension.
  2. Chronic hypertension: Chronic hypertension is high blood pressure which develops around 20 weeks before conception and does not normalize within 12 weeks after childbirth. The patient may also have been suffering from high blood pressure for a long time but the complications appear only during pregnancy because high blood pressure rarely exhibits symptoms without an associated condition.
  3. Chronic hypertension superimposed with Preeclampsia: Women who have hypertension before pregnancy may develop even higher blood pressure levels during pregnancy. This leads to several health disorders like frequent headaches, fatigue and depression.
  4. Preeclampsia: Preeclampsia is often a serious complication of gestational pregnancy and affects about 5% to 7% of all pregnancies globally. Gestational pregnancy does not always develop into preeclampsia but it needs to be diagnosed and treated in time to avoid the complication. Women who have conceived for the first time or have a history of hypertension in the family are at a greater risk of preeclampsia. The symptoms of the condition are throbbing headaches, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, pain in the upper abdominal region and shortness of breath.

Suffering from low BP (65/100). If it is curable if it is by birth? Is low bp can cause ED?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology, Fellowship in Interventional Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
This BP level may be normal and does not require treatment. If you are having weakness, giddiness or blackouts, then we may do tests like Hemoglobin, thyroid hormone levels, kidney function tests besides ecg and echo. Treatment may be required if these tests are positive. See a physician for ED. Otherwise healthy diet, lifestyle and avoid stress. This will also help your ED. All the best.
