Hey, Fatty liver does not lead to high blood pressure. Just avoid fatty foods and high calorie foods. Avoid alcohol if you take alcohol. BP is not high. Also just with one value we cannot come to any conclusion. Just do your excercise ,follow your diet and check values when you are relaxed. Do not record BP after taking a meal, it leads to high BP Kidney stone of 4 mm easily pass through urine.

The moment we get diagnosed with diabetes, our minds cringe in fear by the thought of all the restraint on our life, especially diet, which would be imposed on us for a lifetime, taking away the joy from celebrations and fun eat out sessions etc. Diet management is of utmost importance in diabetes not only to control blood sugar levels but also to keep other risks such as body weight and heart risk factors at bay. People with HbA1c levels mild to moderately elevated (<7.5%) at diagnosis, may be advised to take a diet and lifestyle modification trial before they are put on any drugs and some of these people will be able to control their diabetes/pre-diabetes for a significant amount of time without drugs. Even for people on drugs or insulin diet and lifestyle management is equally important. Therefore, dietary modifications to manage risk factors for CVD are very important in diabetics. These modifications include controlling the intake of salt and ‘bad’ fats in your diet, and the recommended levels of intake are lower than those in general population Diabetics in general are often advised even by their doctors and dieticians, some times, to consume ‘low fat’ diet to manage their heart risk. But In India, where average intake of carbs is much higher than recommended intake of fat, for most people, such an advice is not only erroneous, it is harmful! (Read: Indian diet: ‘pro’s and ‘con’s, to know more) Instead what is needed is to replace the ‘bad’ fats, present in high quantities in vanaspati (found in snack items and restaurant/ fast food meals etc.), full cream milk, butter, ghee and red meat (but not mutton: read more), with vegetable oils (such as olive, canola, rice bran etc. But not coconut and palm oil)

Hi, I'm suffering from hypertension from 1 & 1/2 years i'm in medication period how can control my BP please tell to me.
To control & maintain Blood pressure to normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

My mother of 57 years who normally has chronic high blood pressure is finding it difficult to sleep without sleeping tablet. What can she do to sleep.

Sleeping related problems are basically related to chronic bad sleeping habits. Watching tv late, not doing regular exercise, worrying too much, stressful life are some factors. Apart from these co morbidities like diabetes, high bp, obesity also contribute. Going to bed earl, reading on bed, switching of lights, tv etc may help.

with increasing age, blood carrying pipes I.e. blood vessels become more stiff so there is pressure in arterial wall and pressure rises, (though it varies person to person) so it rises with increasing age, so no permanent cure as no reversal of aging. we have to control it by medication, by dilating arteries otherwise there will be rupture cause stroke, kidney failure hear failure
