My blood pressure is becoming low often. I'm going for night shift work. Does it cause any problems later.

MD Hom., Certificate in Food and Nutrition, BHMS, Diploma In Yoga
Homeopath, Indore
People who work night shifts or rotating shifts also often don't sleep enough, and long-term sleep deprivation is known to be bad for health. Shift work disrupts the circadian rhythm -- our internal body clock that is keyed to natural daylight and darkness. Because circadian rhythm affects how the body functions, disrupting it can throw everything out -- including our cardiovascular system, metabolism, digestion, immune system, and hormonal balance. You need to manage your low bp in the night shift by- Eat more protein, fewer carbs during your shift. Not surprisingly, night shift workers often struggle with feelings of drowsiness and making the right food choices can help. .you can take coconut water with you. Avoid sugar and sweetened beverages. Stop Unhealthy Snacking. Stick to a Schedule. Cut Down The Caffeine. Exercise When You Can be hydrated and maintain electrolyte balance take proper rest just follow these simple things.

Irrespective of which position you measure the blood pressure, it is the normal range that we want to maintain. So, even if there is change in the readings in different positions, our objective is to monitor it regularly and go for follow-up with the doctor. One can control the BP with a holistic approach towards health. Thus, simply depending upon the doctors and the medications is not wise. Exercise every day for at least 30 mins (add yoga including pranayam and meditation) and eat only healthy food while avoiding all types of outside food. Sleep well and relax more. You can contact me for Homeopathic treatment if there is any fluctuations in your health pattern. Homeopathy tries to bring the natural balance without any side-effects or drug interfere.

7 Signs You Are Having A Stroke!

MBBS, MD (Gen. Medicine), DM (Cardiology)
Cardiologist, Delhi
7 Signs You Are Having A Stroke!

Stroke is a condition known to all for its deadly impact. Even if the affected person survives, the after-effects can be immensely debilitating right from affecting movement to speech. Being informed, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Here are the common signs of stroke that you should be aware of:

  1. Numbing of arms and legs: Many people wake up and find that their arms and legs are numb and they tend to assume that it is due to compression of the nerve. But the actual reality is that the flow of blood through the arteries running up to the spine is reduced, and it has led to weakness or numbness on either side of the body.
  2. Double vision and blurriness: Vision problems can also be a strong indicator of stroke even though most people think it is due to long hours of work or aging. When you see two images of the same object, it doesn’t have to mean that you are reading too much. It could mean that the blood vessel in charge of supplying oxygen to the eyes has been disrupted or blocked.
  3. Slurred speech: Some medicines, particular painkillers can cause speech issues. But this is not the case always; if it is not a side effect that you typically experience after taking painkillers, you should consult a healthcare expert without any delay. 
  4. Confusion and trouble over thinking and articulating: When you find yourself in a state where you cannot recall the right word to explain the right thing, you may rest assured that it is an issue stemming from the stroke. If you find yourself to struggle thinking or finding a word very commonly, then you are heading for big trouble.
  5. Balance problems: Some people have balance issues, and they think it is due to the dose of alcohol, but experts say it is crucial to identify whether this assumption is correct. You will never have delayed balance problems, and therefore, you cannot blame a drink that you had last day. So, if you have balance issues without any identifiable reason, it is advisable to call a doctor.
  6. A headache that becomes intolerable at times: Headaches can be a sign of a migraine but in case you are not prone to this ailment, then the debilitating headache could indicate a stroke. Migraine headaches can also mean stroke since both of them have similar signs and symptoms.
  7. Fatigue that won’t let you stay upright: If you are not doing any physically strenuous job but still feel tired most of the time, it could be a warning sign of stroke. If it continues for over a week, it is recommended that you consult an expert immediately.

Equipped with this knowledge, stay aware and pay attention to the indications your body gives to take care of yourself. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

My father (age 69 yrs) admitted with dengue diagnosed (platelet count 27000) and he is high BP patient since last 20 years but this time doctor noticed very low BP and to increase BP they are using medicines. Also he got Urine infection. As per doctor's this is curable but due to his age it will take time and he is in ICU since last 3 days. I want your opinion on the same. Thanks.

Give him lots n lot of water .folic acid n vitamin c are very helpful to increase platelet count so give him citric fruit juices as much as he can. Always give lil quantity. Do not give a big glass of juice altogether. Give around 50-75 ml den again give 50-75 ml after every half an hr. If your doctor allow give him papaya leaf juice Both the papaya fruit and its leaves can help increase a low platelet count within just a few days. Eat ripe papaya or drink a glass of papaya juice with a little lemon juice 2 or 3 times daily. You can also pound a few papaya leaves without the stalk using a pestle and mortar to extract the juice. Drink 2 tablespoons of this bitter juice 2 times a day. Usually bp decrease in dengue fever. Everything ll b normal in few days don't worry n listen n follow your doctors instructions. I wish speedy recovery to your father. Regards

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Presence of fluid in lungs (pleural effusion), could be due to some underlying problem with the lungs like Tuberculosis. That has to be investigated and if present should be promptly treated with appropriate drugs. Because in persons with diabetes incidence of TB is quite high. High creatinine (3.6 mg) signifies problems with kidney functioning. High BP and uncontrolled diabetes both can cause damage to the kidney leading to increased creatinine, So it is essential for achieving strict blood glucose control and near normal BP. Plus her protein intake has to be not more than 0.6 g/kg /day. Thanks.

What Tests Can Be Done To Identify The Stroke?

MCH, MS- Surgery, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Guwahati
What Tests Can Be Done To Identify The Stroke?

Strokes occur when blood to the brain gets interrupted or reduced. When this occurs, brain cells begin to die as they don't get enough nutrients and oxygen. Such life-threatening episodes can strike you anytime.

There are certain signs that can help you to clearly recognise an occurrence of stroke:

  • Face drooping on one side
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of the body, usually a leg or an arm
  • You're unable to think or say anything clearly
  • You experience slurred speech
  • Difficulty in moving your tongue
  • You get a sudden and severe headache

Causes

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to your brain is interrupted or reduced. This deprives your brain of oxygen and nutrients, which can cause your brain cells to die. A stroke may be caused by a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or the leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Some people may experience only a temporary disruption of blood flow to their brain (transient ischemic attack, or TIA).

What Tests can be Done to Identify the Stroke?

There are certain tests that you can do to identify these warning signs.

  • To identify facial weakness, the smile test is used wherein you're simply asked to show your teeth to check for any changes in this facial expression - a lopsided smile.
  • To check for weakness in the body, the arm test is performed in which you raise both your arms to the same height. In case you're unable to do so, you may be experiencing arm weakness, a sign of stroke.
  • For slurring of speech, you may be asked to repeat sentences such as 'Don't cry over spilt milk' or 'The pen is mightier than the sword'.
  • Stroke can also be identified through the walk test wherein with the help of another person, you walk across the room to check for changes in your step.

If not treated in time, strokes can cause permanent brain damage. More importantly, unlike heart attacks, anxiety may not always be the cause of your stroke symptoms. That's why, being aware of these symptoms and recognising them on time can help you to quickly seek medical assistance.

Endocrine causes of hypertension leading to stroke frequently go undiagnosed in cases such as Pheochromocytoma, Conn's syndrome, Cushing's syndrome, etc. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For quick and proper recovery from an operation, it is very essential to maintain blood glucose and BP in excellent control. Therefore, he should maintain fasting glucose < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Plus BP should be around 120 to 130/ 70 to 80 mm Hg. To suggest a diet I need following details - fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, present diet pattern, weight, height and extent of physical activity being done daily. Thanks.

What to Know About Silent Heart Attacks!

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
What to Know About Silent Heart Attacks!

A heart attack does not always have obvious symptoms, such as pain in your chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats. In fact, a heart attack can actually happen without a person knowing it. This condition is known as a ‘silent heart attack’, medically known as ‘silent ischemia’, occurring due to the shortage of oxygen supply to the heart muscle. The causes of a silent heart attack are similar to that of a heart attack. 

They include- 

  1. Conditions like: 
  2. Lack of exercise 
  3. Age, usually above 65 
  4. Consumption of tobacco or smoking 
  5. High consumption of alcohol 

A silent cardiac arrest makes one more vulnerable to another heart attack that could be fatal. Diagnosis: The only method to diagnose if you had a silent heart attack is through imaging tests, such as echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, Holter Monitoring or others. These tests can show certain changes which might be indicative of a heart attack. An analysis of one’s overall health and the symptoms can aid in deciding whether few more tests are required. 

How would you prevent a silent heart attack? 
1.    Get your cholesterol and blood pressure count tested regularly. 
2.    Refrain from smoking. 
3.    Get your VO2 max checked regularly. 
4.    Live a healthy lifestyle: Refrain from smoking and excessive alcohol consumption; exercise daily, eat healthy. 
5.    Control high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes 
6.    Be aware of your body and call on a doctor if you feel there’s anything which is bothering you. 

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