Nifed 10 MG Tablet Health Feed

I am taking metapro XL 25 mg and Etizola Plus tablets for more than 5 years but the blood pressure remains high (140/90). Recently I consulted another cardiologist and the doctor prescribed "Amtas AT" as a substitute. But I've not taken the pills as prescribed by the later doctor. Is "Amtas AT" is a better substitute or not. What are the side effects of this medicine? Please advice me.

Respected Sir As per the details provided your estimated GFR is 22 ml/min/1.73 sq. M, comes under CKD Stage IV. 1.Kidney function is severely decreased in stage 4 CKD. Protein waste, toxins and minerals build up in the body and lead to uremia with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, abnormal taste, bad breath, nerve and sleep problems, difficulty concentrating and fatigue. Fluid retention due to a decrease in urine output may also occur. 2.Protein Restriction: A protein intake of 0.6g per kilogram of body weight is beneficial for glomerular filtration. Ensure you do not take more protein than recommended. 3.Fluid Restriction: Restrict the amount of fluids you consume. The total volume should be your daily urine output+ 500 ml. Suppose your daily urine output is around 500 ml, you should not take more than 1 litre of fluids (water and other fluids combined) per day. 4.Potassium Restriction: Avoid High potassium foods like bananas, prune juice oranges, orange juice, milk, tomato juice, prunes, nuts, chocolate, dried peas and beans. 5.Phosphorous Restriction: Foods containing high phosphorus are milk, beans, black eye peas, nuts, chocolate, yogurt, cheese of any kind, liver, desserts prepared milk. 6.Sodium Restriction: High sodium foods include salt, all types of frozen meats, corned beef, sausage, pizza, Chinese food, fast foods, cheese, pickles, soy sauce, potato chips and all types of canned soups. The above diet cannot obviously prove to be cure but it can increase your life quality and feeling of your well-being. Kidney Transplantation provides an improved quality of Life. Please consider going for Kidney Transplantation. Hope this helps Sir Get Well Soon.

I’m 5 weeks pregnant. Before I found out I was pregnant I used to take my blood pressure medication on empty stomach first thing in the morning. Now I’m pregnant can I still take it at that time on an empty stomach? The drugs I take are methyldopa 250 mg and nifedipine 20 mg.

Yes you can take blood pressure medicines empty stomach, but do not take both medicines at the same time. If you are taking methyl dopa twice daily then take nifidipine at mid noon.

Dr. my mother has got high microalbumin 972/mg and now the creatinine is 1.6 and blood urea is 47. Hdl n ldl is just up to the mark but triglycerides are very high 572. If she takes the medicine calcigard retard then she has her ankle swelling also. She is taking it without any break. Please guide how she can lower both her albumin and triglycerides. She got bp. But its under control 135/80. Please help to lower both the things.

Micro albumin urea and high serum creatinine suggest the onset of nephropathy which is kidney dysfunction which might be a complication of chronic high blood pressure you also have high triglycerides so I am assuming your cholesterol and LDL might as well be little hai but you are already taking medications for them as well as for Hypertension so what you need is to understand the concept of hypertension and high cholesterol and try and keep them strictly under control with regular monitoring and keeping a record also you need to check out the risk factors like diabetes prediabetes and environmental factors like dust and smoking if any. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. My advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least one week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out latent cardiac issues and signs of other complications 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO TMT Lipid profile TSH Fundoscopy Usg KUB high LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the doors of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food good luck.
