Resilo 50 MG Tablet

Resilo 50 MG Tablet

Manufacturer: Dr. Reddys Laboratories Ltd
Medicine composition: Losartan
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Resilo 50 MG Tablet belongs to the angiotensin II receptor antagonists group of drugs. It prevents the blood vessels in your body from narrowing, thus lowering your blood pressure and improving the blood circulation. This medication has the ability to lower the possible risk of a stroke in people suffering from any heart condition. Apart from that, it can also slow down kidney damage among people with type 2 diabetes. You can take this medicine with as well as without food. It can take 3-6 weeks for your blood pressure to come under control after you have started a course of this medication.

Resilo 50 MG Tablet is a prescription drug that is available in the form of an oral tablet. There are three main reasons for its usage. Firstly, it is used for the treatment of high blood pressure. The second usage is for reducing the risk of stroke in people, who already have high blood pressure as well as left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). LVH is a condition where the left ventricle (chamber) of the heart thickens as a result of which the heart is unable to pump well. Lastly, Resilo 50 MG Tablet is used for treating diabetic nephropathy, a kidney disease caused due to diabetes.

Resilo 50 MG Tablet blocks the action of the chemical named angiotension II in the body, which causes the blood vessels to narrow and tighten. This medication helps the blood vessels to relax and eventually widen. It lowers your blood pressure, thus reducing your risk of having a stroke or kidney damage.

The dosage and the form of having Resilo 50 MG Tablet depends on your age, severity of your condition, your medical history and also how your body reacts when you take the first dose. If you miss a dose, take it once you realize the missed dose. However, ensure that you do not take two doses at the same time just because you missed the previous one. Overdosing can make you feel dizzy, weak or a pounding heart.

Increase in microalbuminuria and creatinine suggests that kidney are getting affected mostly due to diabetes. One of the group of drugs recommended for hypertension with diabetes is ACE-Inhibitors like Lisinopril, Enalepri or ARBs like Losartan, Telmisartan or Olmesartan etc. Thanks.

If diastolic is always below 80 and systolic rises to 150 on most of the evenings then recheck after 15 minutes of rest. If still above 140 then add Tab. Amlong 2.5 in the evening around 6 pm. As for your second question. All three drugs are almost same on action potency and lil different in side effects. So doesn't matter which one you take until your kidneys are fine.

Chronic Nephritis - How To Cope With It?

DNB (Nephrology), MD, MBBS
Nephrologist, Delhi
Chronic Nephritis - How To Cope With It?

Chronic nephritis is a type of Glomerulonephritis (GN). In this condition, irritation takes place in the Glomeruli, which are parts in your kidneys comprising tiny blood vessels. These knots of vessels filter your blood and remove excess fluids from the body. In case your glomeruli are harmed, your kidneys will quit working properly and you can suffer from kidney failure. It is a very serious illness that can be life threatening and requires immediate medical intervention.

The condition is also called nephritis. There can be both acute and chronic nephritis. The chronic type of GN can take several years to develop with almost no obvious symptoms. This can cause irreversible harm to your kidneys and also prompt complete kidney failure.

Causes and risks:
A hereditary condition can once in a while cause chronic nephritis. It happens in young men with poor vision and poor hearing. Persistent and untreated conditions may also bring about chronic nephritis. A history of cancer in the family may likewise put you at danger. Having acute nephritis may make you more prone to build up chronic nephritis later on. Being exposed to some hydrocarbon solvents may build the danger of chronic nephritis. Chronic nephritis does not generally have a clear-cut cause. About 25% of individuals with this condition have no history of kidney diseases.

Symptoms:
A few symptoms of chronic nephritis include:

  1. Blood or abundance protein in your urine
  2. Hypertension
  3. Swelling in lower legs
  4. Continuous urination during evenings
  5. Bubbly or frothy urine (from abundance protein)
  6. Stomach pain
  7. Continuous nosebleeds


Treatment:
Depending upon the symptoms of the problem, the treatment might be distinctive. Some of the ways it can be dealt with are:

  • Controlling hypertension, particularly if that is the hidden cause for the problem. Circulatory strain might be difficult to control when your kidneys are not working properly. If so, your specialist may prescribe pulse medicines, including angiotensin-changing over catalyst inhibitors. Some of these medicines include Captopril, Lisinopril and Perindopril.
  • Your specialist may likewise recommend angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). Some of these may include Losartan, Irbesartan and Valsartan.
  • Another technique to reduce immune-triggered aggravation is plasmapheresis. This procedure expels the liquid part of the blood (plasma) and replaces it with intravenous (IV) liquids or donated plasma (without any antibodies).

For chronic GN, you will have to decrease the level of protein, salt and potassium in your diet. Also, you should observe the amount of fluid you drink. Calcium supplements might be suggested and you may need to take diuretics to lessen swelling. Not surprisingly, check with your general physician or kidney specialist for rules about dietary restrictions or food. In case your condition worsens and causes kidney failure, you may need dialysis. This is a technique where a machine filters your blood. In the end, you may require a kidney transplant. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Nephrologist.

Feeling Angry - 12 Doctor Recommended Tips!

Feeling Angry - 12 Doctor Recommended Tips!

Anger is good. It protects you. But intense, uncontrolled anger may destroy valuable relationships. Anger is a result of anxiety and fear. When we assume that our expectations will not be met, we become anxious. When we feel unsure about our own capabilities we become anxious. This anxiety creates fear. Anxiety comes from our beliefs. All beliefs can be modified.

Anger has lots of energy. Avoid arguments/confrontations when you are very angry. When you are very angry you are likely to use rough language which may damage your relations and you are likely to behave impulsively. All this you might regret later on. Following are a few techniques which will help you to manage your anger in difficult situations :

  1. Sit down and have a glass of water, slowly. This will help you to calm down a little.
  2. Avoid or go away from that room or situation. Tell the people concerned, that you are angry and would like to discuss it some other time.
  3. Deep breathing exercises help a lot. Close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths, turn your attention towards your body. See what is happening to your body. Tell your body muscles to relax. If your heart is beating fast, if you are breathing fast, continue deep breathing, till it normalises.
  4. Now understand what is making you angry. Understand your own anxiety and fear related to the issue.
  5. Let the other person know how you are “feeling”. Start your statements, “I feel hurt/insulted/let down/neglected etc. when you do this”, instead of saying “You hurt/neglect me”. When you express your feeling in this manner, the other person does not feel blamed, which makes the other person more receptive.
  6. Focus on the current issue, don’t bring in past situations.
  7. Tell the other person, what you want or expect, instead of telling what you do not want. E.G. Instead of saying “I don’t want you to go out now”, say “I would like you to stay at home today”.
  8. Listen carefully what the other person wants to tell you. Give others a chance to voice their opinions.
  9. Make an eye contact and be firm but polite while communicating your point of view.
  10. Understand everyone’s responsibility in the situation. Try to see, what is your share in the problematic situation? Work on that.
  11. Understand what change you want.
  12. Have realistic expectations from others and also from yourself.

Unhealthy Processed Food - 6 Perfect Healthy Replacements For Them!

Unhealthy Processed Food - 6 Perfect Healthy Replacements For Them!

Processed snacks are probably the main reasons behind the increasing waistline. From potato chips to cakes, they all contain simple sugars that spike up your blood sugar levels. The spike releases a sudden burst of energy into the blood stream, which if not used, is converted into fat. So if you are overweight, it’s time to make some dietary changes.

To make things easy, healthy replacements for 6 common processed snacks are given below:

  1. Potato chips with ‘khakhra’: Potato chips are loaded with unhealthy fats and simple sugars which don’t do you any good. So replace them with healthy ‘khakhras’ which are made from wheat flour, a complex carb. Do not add unhealthy fat dressings such as ghee or butter.
  2. Soft drinks with green tea: Most soft drinks contain sugars and they have almost zero nutritional values. Green tea on the other hand has antioxidants that reverse the free radical damage in the body.
  3. A white bread sandwich with a whole wheat version: Another commonly consumed snack, white bread is made from refined flour which is not a complex carb. Instead, ask for a whole grain version which provides much more in terms of health benefits. Make sure the fillings are primarily plain salads and without any cheese or mayo.
  4. Pizza with a whole wheat wrap: While pizzas may give you a watery mouth, they come with lots of empty calories and hidden sugars. A whole wheat wrap, on the other hand, contains complex carbohydrates that do not spike your blood sugar levels. Make sure the fillings contain healthy vegetables and skip on the dressings.
  5. Cookies with nuts: Reaching out for the cookie jar? Think again. While they may satiate your hunger and appease your craving taste buds, it is only temporary. Cookies are a storehouse of sugars and refined flour which are very bad for your blood sugar levels. Instead, reach for the jar that contains heart healthy almonds and walnuts; they contain minerals and Vitamins that are good for you.
  6. Ice cream with yoghurt: Although a tub of that dense chocolate ice cream is a delight on a hot summer’s day, it is not really so for your blood sugar levels. Rich in sugar, it spikes your blood sugar and adds tons of calories. Opt for fresh yoghurt and top it up with some chopped fruits and nuts.

Feeling Needy - Is There A Way To Reduce That Feeling?

Feeling Needy - Is There A Way To Reduce That Feeling?

Man is different from the other species in that we are social beings. One of the main differentiators is our constant need to 'connect' with our fellow beings. Be it family or friends or society at large, we constantly need to be connected to our near and dear ones and want attention, affection, and assurance.

We need to respect this basic desire and appreciate that there is nothing wrong in feeling needed. Problems arise when this feeling to be needed gets excessive. There is a significant constant demand from the needy person, especially from those who are close to them.

Some cases where neediness is demonstrated are in new relationships. In the beginning, there is a great urge to please and therefore a greater focus on interacting with them. There is a fear of losing attention, there is insatiable excessive demand for attention - be it pleas, accusations, or demands - so as to not feel abandoned and deserted. Neediness is also quite evident in people with depression. Again, an attempt to not be abandoned by their near and dear ones.

By making a conscious effort, the neediness can be reduced, thereby making the relationships smoother and less painful to both the parties involved. As the saying goes - 'acknowledging the problem is half the problem solved'.

Needy people should realize or accept if told that there is an issue and make a conscious effort to work on reducing neediness.

1. Divert attention - As simple as it might sound, it is equally effective. Indulge in whatever interests you - exercise, meditation, dance, sing, etc. The idea is to divert attention so that the urge to feel needy and act on that instinct is reduced. This reduces the fear of being lonely and works magic. The busier you get, the less bored you are. As they say, be alone but not lonely.

2. Clarity in communication - One of the intricacies of neediness is making unclear demands. Sadly, quite often, the person does not know what he wants, and so are the demands or requests which are equally unclear. Once you are aware that your neediness is making you do this, make an effort to clearly communicate what you actually want. This reduces the stress on both the parties involved and leads to a happier engagement.

3. Clarity in relationships - Take a step back and see if your neediness is affecting any major relationships. If yes, revisit and clarify. Make an attempt and reestablish the relationships. If it is your truly near and dear ones, they will be very forthcoming and understanding.

4. Move on - In cases where your neediness has affected another person, be wise to accept their wishes and not be more 'needy' or clingy. This acceptance will make way for a lot of healthier relationships as you learn to deal with accepting your issues.

5. Socialize - Use your hobbies to make more friends and socialize more. Having more people to interact with reduces your need to be accepted by the same people. You have more people to rely on and might make more friends for keeps.

These are some simple ways to reduce neediness on others, but as mentioned, the first step is to accept and then work on ways to reduce it.

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