My BP readings (including Basal BP readings) early in the morning tends to be high (ie, 173/104, 160/96, 153/110, 182/101. Etc), but gradually decreases as the day go by (ie 154/87, 146/83, 135/80, 140/88. Etc), I am a regular taker of medicines without fail. I am suffering from DM-2, Hypertension and have CAD too. I have observed this tendency since I have a BP monitor by which I used to measure my BP readings at random. Can any doctors clarify the reasons for this so that I can take appropriate measures please.

Hi Your blood pressure is maintained by hormones like cortisol and aldosterone secreted by adrenal gland located on top of kidney The level of cortisol is highest during the morning hours in body hence b.p is higher in the morning My suggestion is take longer acting antihypertensives at night so that they can prevent fluctuation of bp till breakfast time And take short acting one in afternoon or breakfast time Thanks.

Avoid spicy and oily food. Eat at regular intervals. Don't keep your stomach empty for long hours. Eat small quantities of food every 2hrs once till you get rid of the pain. You can take antacids before consuming any food so that it will neutralise the acid produced in the stomach. Don't get worried too much. Mental tensions will also cause gastritis. Drink plenty of water. Eat fruits or drink fresh fruit juices or tender coconut which keep your body cool.

Hi when one is on treatment for hypothyroidism, to achieve good control tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 milli units /l. If that is achieved then most symptoms are in control and weight reduction is also possible. As regards the other tablets particularly lpuineme, fdson they are really not essential, given as vitamin supplement. D3 is some times needed. But most important for you is to achieve strict control of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Dear lybrate-user, More important than only your diet, is to put into practice physical exercise to reduce the burden of many hours of sedentary working posture. This itself will help. Make sure you eat fruit, vegetables (boiled) to work and drink plenty of water to avoid head aches that are a marker of acidity fatigue and postural discomfort. Contact personally for more info to remain healthy. Regards.

Dear Sharath, Angiography is the investigation which decides whether to go for angioplasty ( stent placement) or bypass. If your doctor has advised angioplasty means there may be blockage in the coronary arteries ( heart blood vessels). So don't worry please go ahead for stent placement for patient's benefit. Once it is done all the problems would be solved. He will feel better. All the best.

Dear lybrate user do not depend on medicines to get sleep. To get good sleep drink a cup of milk everynight before bed. Have some stretching exercises or little walk before sleep. Apply coconut oil on soles and little massage. Keep your bowel movements regularly. Listen pleasant music.

Hello. High blood cholesterol is treated with lifestyle changes and medicines. There are few risk factors: Cigarette smoking High blood pressure (140/90 mmHg or higher), or you’re on medicine to treat high blood pressure Low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (less than 40 mg/dL) Family history of early heart disease (heart disease in father or brother before age 55; heart disease in mother or sister before age 65) Age (men 45 years or older; women 55 years or older) Food to be avoided: -Saturated fat which is found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, and deep-fried and processed foods. -You also should try to limit the amount of sodium (salt) that you eat. -Try to limit drinks with alcohol. Too much alcohol will raise your blood pressure and triglyceride level. Food to be taken: -Whole-grain cereals such as oatmeal and oat bran -Fruits such as apples, bananas, oranges, pears, and prunes -Legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, chick peas, black-eyed peas -A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can increase important cholesterol-lowering compounds in your diet. -A healthy diet also includes some types of fish, such as salmon, tuna (canned or fresh), and mackerel. These fish are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids may help protect the heart from blood clots and inflammation and reduce the risk of heart attack. Try to have about two fish meals every week. If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can help lower LDL cholesterol. Routine physical activity can lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and raise your HDL cholesterol level. Medication: Cholesterinum 30/ thrice daily for 4 weeks.

I do not have a data about how many are dead by now. Heart attacks occur when blood supply to heart is blocked due to deposits called plaque.
