I have high BP during waking hours (basal BP). Though it stabilizes during the day somewhat, it is the same story the next morning/day. I had CAD in 2008 and have DM-II and BP for the last 13 years and under medication. I snore and in the morning have blocked noses (thereby inhibiting breathing process ?) which eases as the day pass by. What are the contributory factors for this high BP? What parameters have to be checked in order to find the right reasons behind this anomaly.

Hello. My self pregnant from two months. I have high bp from last 4 years and have on medication. But becoz m pregnant so doctor lowers my bp medicine depin return 20 bt my bp never comes below 140/ 80. My doctor alsi prescribes me duphaston 10 mg. I have searched on net and got that it increases high bp sometimes. I am confused and taking the medicine and feeling worried to ask my doctor also if he will disappoint with my asking. Duphaston medicine is for protection. Please advice.

What you are suffering is called hypertension. And it needs medicines because the body's bp needs to be regulated or else it will cause damage to the vital organs like brain, kidneys etc. Now that you are pregnant, the medicines must be continued, as they were. There is no need to reduce medicines unless you have symptoms related to it. As the medicines are reduced, the bp is remaining high, and not coming below 140/80. In a pregnant woman with hypertension usually there are chances of abortion, and intrauterine bleeding etc. Along with seizures (fits). Usually in pregnancy, the woman's blood volume rises and this happens from 5-7 month. During this period there is a chance of developing hypertension which is now called pregnancy induced hypertension. Since you already have high bp, if your bp increases after 20 weeks it will need special care of the fetal nourishment and growth must be monitored. Depin is safe in pregnancy and there are other drugs too which can be given. Talk to your doctor and ask the gynec about the reduced dose. If required take a second opinion. Usually in patients having previous abortions, progesterone is given to protect the pregnancy and prevent abortion. There are many types of progesterone. Natural micronised progesterone, injectable progesterone, and some synthetic progesterone. Duphaston falls in progesterone category. It is not known to cause high blood pressure but it has water retaining properties which may have alerted you. But you can talk about it to your gynec and doctor may change duphaston to other progesterones.

Mr Ramkrishna, I am sure you are aware that diabetes mellitus and Hypertension are two conditions which can only be controlled. There is no permanent cure or solution. Treatment with specific drugs and suggested life style changes have to be adhered to all the while. Similarly for reducing cholesterol or correcting dyslipidemia appropriate drugs with diet control and exercise also are equally important. To give any suggestions I need to know present fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, diet pattern, extent of exercise, height and weight. Based on those details I will be able to give some guidelines. It will be better if you come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific suggestions.

Hi lybrate-user. As you said, now you are taking medications for high BP as well as Diabetes. Combination of these two diseases poses a risk of all sorts of future problems. You should adopt health life style from right now! Regular walking, running, jogging, swimming etc etc. Any kind of physical workout. But this has to be regular and daily. Follow diet regulations for high BP and Diabetes. Diet information is easily available everywhere. Regular visit to your physician is a must. Take care.

What is the heart attack about to me in full details and how many people are dead by heart attack?
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.

I'm a 35 year old male, 5'7" 158lbs, very fit, extremely active and have no heart conditions other than PVCs. I have a history of anxiety and have had an echocardiogram, holter test. Nothing wrong except for panic attacks. That being said my cholesterol is not perfect and I go out of my way to try to eat right although I'm not perfect at it. That being said my diet is FAR superior to the avg American diet. My recent lipid panel had my HDL at 38, LDL at 136 and Triglycerides at 106. VDL at 21. My LDL often fluctuates between 105 - 140 between blood draws and my HLD often is between 38 and 44. I'm working like crazy to bring up my HDL and lower my LDL a bit more by adjusting diet with more nuts, avocados and fish. I'm just always worried I'll drop dead from a heart attack at a young age because I've read stories on the internet of perfectly healthy young people in their 30s having heart attacks because of major blockage. Should I be worried? Are my Cholesterol level numbers concerning at all? I thought doing anaerobic and weight exercises 5 times a week dramatically reduced people's risk of a heart attack. Also I have no known heart disease in the family.

Hye. Thanks for the query. General weakness or feeling lethargic is a common problem faced by many. Basically, weakness is “lack of physical or muscle strength and the feeling that extra effort is needed to perform daily activities”. Weakness may leave you without energy to carry out day-to-day activities, drowsy or tired, sluggish, and uninterested. Other symptoms include excessive sweating, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty falling asleep. You can feel weak due to lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor. Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. Diet is the main source of energy for our body. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Chest pain is purely due to acidity because of skipped meals and long gaps between meals. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Sleep well. So, to feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking.

Anxiety and stress are common causes of chest pain that mimics pain due to structural heart disease. You need to relax. Yoga and meditation can help. Anxiety if persistent needs psychiatrist's counselling.

I am a women of 40 year old and I am suffering from high blood pressure from last 4 months. What can I do to control it?
Dear, To control & maintan BP 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.

You have told the answer to your query in your question that acidity increase with paranths and puri. Cut down on fats and take soothing diet like milk or curds and never remain empty stomach for long hours or eat a lot for 1 meal a day for diet control. Do drink green tea or clear soup or chaach after 2 hours to wash away collected acids. Remain active. Exercise does help in digestive process.
