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. Plenty of fluids orally. I suggest brisk walking for 40 mins, 5 days a week. Remain stress free as much as possible. Take your medicines regularly. 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.

He is suffering from heart disease and blockage in nerve of 60% so is it necessary to do BY PASS SURGERY?

He is suffering from heart disease and blockage in nerve of 60% so is it necessary to do BY PASS SURGERY?
If it is only one blood vessel, there is no need, other collateral vessels lying low so far will take over the role of this blocked vessel, but one should keep trying home remedies to dissolve the clot - lemon juice + spoon of honey in warm water does help, people are writing a lot about benefits of apple cider vinegar -no harm or side effects, if there are no symptoms due to blocked vessel, simple walks do wonders in opening up collateral blood vessels of the heart.

You have not mentioned your BP and your reports are not visible as well. But you can continue both the medicines you are taking. Also you should add lifestyle measures to this like - daily brisk walking for around 40 mins begin gradually and increase it to 40 mins, take a detailed diet consult for a heart healthy diet, restrict salt in your diet by avoiding high salt foods like chips, papads, namkeens, pickles etc and quit smoking and drinking. Re-check your cholesterol as well as BP after 6 weeks, if still high then you will require a change in dose or medicine.

Hereditary Heart Diseases - How to Deal With Them?

Hereditary Heart Diseases - How to Deal With Them?

A heart disease is definitely something, which is serious. In most cases, it is the result of a person’s lack of prudence when it comes to staying fit and moderating what food items feature in the diet. But is this always the case? Well, not at all. Genetic or hereditary heart diseases, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, long QT syndrome, very high cholesterol levels running in the family and many others, provide enough reason as to why not.

This is because a person cannot be blamed for a hereditary heart disease as the reason why this occurs is on account of the genetic makeup. So, the best way for one to know, if there is a risk of this sort of disease is to take a look at the family history with respect to the disease.

  1. Keep a record: One of the ways by which a person can get to know if there is a risk of a hereditary heart disease is by finding out, if a condition known as arrhythmia is prevalent in the family. This is a condition in which the heart has an irregular heart beat and can be potentially lethal. Other things which are to be watched out for include, but are not limited to, a track record of members in the family who have faced a heart failure at a young age, especially prior to them reaching the age of 50.
  2. Watch out for signs: It is not always true that the signs of hereditary heart diseases pertain to the heart. If a person has fainted or has had seizures, and an effective treatment could not be performed by making use of the normal medicines, which would generally be used in these circumstances, it could be taken as a sign of presence of hereditary heart disease.
  3. Get tested: To know if there is a risk of a hereditary heart disease, it is important that a person gets genetically tested. This is to be done so that the gene analysis can provide details as to which hereditary heart diseases a person has, along with the other members of the family. There are various tests for things such as HCM, ARVD and Marfan syndrome.

Apart from this, undergoing genetic counselling is also considered important. This is to keep a check on the worries of having a sudden heart attack as well as the concerns one may have about passing the genes relating to the heart disease to one’s offspring. This is one of the most necessary, but underrated things when it comes to dealing with a hereditary heart disease. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

Dear Pinku, Stopping smoking itself will be helpful. It needs continuous motivation for 3-6 months. You can do it if you don't want chest pain. However check up with doctor about your chest pain. You know that nicotine affects heart badly.

You are suffering from sleep apnea Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a problem in which your breathing pauses during sleep. This occurs because of narrowed or blocked airways. Causes When you sleep, all of the muscles in your body become more relaxed. This includes the muscles that help keep your throat open so air can flow into your lungs. Normally, your throat remains open enough during sleep to let air pass by. Some people have a narrow throat. When the muscles in their upper throat relax during sleep, the tissues close in and block the airway. This stop in breathing is called apnea. Loud snoring is a telltale symptom of OSA. Snoring is caused by air squeezing through the narrowed or blocked airway. Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea though. Other factors also may increase your risk: A lower jaw that is short compared to your upper jaw Certain shapes of the roof of your mouth (palate) or airway that cause it to collapse more easily Large neck or collar size, 17 inches (43 centimeters) or more in men and 16 inches (41 centimeters) or more in women Large tongue, which may fall back and block the airway Obesity Large tonsils and adenoids that can block the airway Sleeping on your back can also cause your airway to become blocked or narrowed. Central sleep apnea is another sleep disorder during which breathing can stop. It occurs when the brain temporarily stops sending signals to the muscles that control breathing. Symptoms If you have OSA, you usually begin snoring heavily soon after falling asleep. The snoring often becomes very loud. Snoring is interrupted by a long silent period while your breathing stops. The silence is followed by a loud snort and gasp, as you attempt to breathe. This pattern repeats throughout the night. Most people with OSA do not know their breathing starts and stops during the night. Usually, a sleep partner or other family members hear the loud snoring, gasping, and snorting. Snoring can be loud enough to hear through walls. People with sleep apnea may: Wake up unrefreshed in the morning Feel sleepy or drowsy throughout the day Act grumpy, impatient, or irritable Be forgetful Fall asleep while working, reading, or watching TV Feel sleepy while driving or even fall asleep while driving Have hard-to-treat headaches Other problems that may occur include: Depression Hyperactive behavior, especially in children Difficult to treat high blood pressure Leg swelling (if apnea is severe) Exams and Tests Your health care provider will take your medical history and do a physical exam. Your provider will check your mouth, neck, and throat. You may be asked about daytime sleepiness, how well you sleep, and bedtime habits. You will need to have a sleep study to confirm OSA. Other tests that may be performed include: Arterial blood gases Electrocardiogram (ECG) Echocardiogram Thyroid function studies Treatment Treatment helps keep your airway open while you sleep so your breathing does not stop. Lifestyle changes may help relieve symptoms in people with mild sleep apnea, such as: Avoid alcohol or medicines that make you sleepy before bedtime. They can make symptoms worse. Avoid sleeping on your back. Lose excess weight. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices work best to treat obstructive sleep apnea in most people. You wear a mask over your nose while you sleep. The mask is connected by a hose to a small machine that sits at the side of your bed. The machine pumps air under pressure through the hose and mask and into your airway while you sleep. This helps keep your airway open. It can take some time to get used to sleeping with CPAP therapy. Good follow-up and support from a sleep center can help you overcome any problems using CPAP. Dental devices may help some people. You wear them in your mouth while you sleep to keep your jaw forward and the airway open. Other treatments may be available, but there is less evidence that they work. It is best to talk with a doctor who specializes in sleep problems before trying them. Surgery may be an option for some people. It is often a last resort if other treatments did not work and you have severe symptoms. Surgery may be used to: Remove extra tissue at the back of the throat. Correct problems with the structures in the face. Create an opening in the windpipe to bypass the blocked airway if there are physical problems. Remove the tonsils and adenoids. Surgery may not completely cure obstructive sleep apnea and may have long-term side effects. Outlook (Prognosis) If not treated, sleep apnea may cause: Anxiety and depression Loss of interest in sex Poor performance at work or school Daytime sleepiness because of sleep apnea can increase the risk of: Motor vehicle accidents from driving while sleepy Industrial accidents from falling asleep on the job In most cases, treatment completely relieves symptoms and problems from sleep apnea. Possible Complications Untreated obstructive sleep apnea may lead to or worsen heart disease, including: Heart arrhythmias Heart failure Heart attack High blood pressure Stroke When to Contact a Medical Professional You feel very tired and sleepy during the day You or your family notice symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea Symptoms do not improve with treatment, or new symptoms develop.

General Physician,
I am a 70 years old male. With a blood pressure 140/80. Is it normal. And if not. please suggest some medications.
Thanks for your query. Till the age of 75 years blood pressure below 140/90 is considered to be normal. So as of now you need not worry about taking treatment for high blood pressure. But its recommended that you monitor your blood pressure regularly. Also visit your physician if you get symptoms such as headache, dizziness, chest pain, breathlessness, difficulty in vision etc.

Hypothyroidism is being controlled by medications like the one you are using. Hiatus hernia causes acid reflux and chronic reflux not only increases morbidity in terms of chest pain and burning but also can cause changes in food pipe lining called Barrets esophagus which is bad. Hence it is advisable to operate for hiatus hernia. I do lapaeoscopic surgery with 1to2 days hospital stay. Very minimal pain and complete cure.
