My mom is 46 years old and she is having high BP problem. She sometimes wakes up at middle of night and finds her head heavy. Suggest Mr. something to control it.

With your symptoms as described I feel that her medication is not being given adequately. Get a home bp monitor and check her bp every 6 hourly when she is relaxing for atleast 1/2 hour. Then with bp readings and her present medication chart revert back. We can address her headache better.

I was suffering from high blood pressure ie 120*180 since 2 years. I neglected it and then my doctor got me on medication prolomet AM 25. Since then the blood pressure is lowered upto 95*145 but I am not feel that energetic through out the day and if I do not take my medicine I feel pain in my chest. Please guide me if this medicine is correct and also tell me what are the side effects of the medicine. Is there any way I can have some home remedy OR yoga and avoid medicine.

Hello lybrate-user your blood pressure is better than before but not fully controlled. It is better to get blood urea and creatinine tests done and add another bp tablet like ramipril 5 mg after checking the blood. This will bring blood pressure under better control. Persistent high blood pressure itself will make you tired and can damage other organs like kidneys. Relaxation in any form will help in controlling bp but you still need medicines.

Doctor, if an underweight person has reduced his HDL cholesterol level by anxiety or confusion, will he get affected by heart diseases like cardiac arrest? Pls answer me.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

No , do not blame low HDL. Stress and anxiety are major factors of heart attack. anyway keep HDL on higher side by eating selective foods like assorted nuts + spoon of pure ghee/butter.

I am feeling pain in my chest mainly on the left side I took ECG the doct told me it is early regularization syndrome and said no risk. I consulted an other cardiologist, after taking ECG he also told I no heart related problems. But since last 2 days I am feeling continuous mild chest pain with some burning feeling. Should I again consult some other cardiologist or it is normal. Age-30, male.

Early repolarization pattern in ecg is normally found in young persons. Its harmless. Do not worry. Its possible that you are having acidity. If you are still concerned get a troponin test done. If thats negative then stay assured of not having heart problem.

After testing I had been detected as vitamin-d deficiency. If we have vitamin-d deficiency then vitamin b12will also be less? Now a days a feel pain in various parts of my body mostly different parts of my chest, one day feel pain at one place next day in other part, is this due to vitamin -d deficiency or anything critical?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Vitamin B 12 is a part of our diet and is absorbed in the gut with the help of Intrinsic Factor secreted by the stomach. Inability of body to secrete enough Intrinsic Factor causes poor absorption of B 12. This causes anaemia and neuritis. Vit D although a part of diet from non vegetarian food or fats artificially fortified with Vitamin D, it is naturally synthesized in the body in presence of sunlight. Poor exposure to Sun causes deficiency of this vitamin. The type of life we people are living nowadays, mostly keeping indoors, has contributed to this. Enjoy sunlight in the morning before noon hours when ultraviolet rays strike the body at a particular angle and save yourself from Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is mostly is due to Intrinsic factor problem hence dietary absorption is not possible. Such patients need to be given Methocobalamin a B12 isomer to replenish the deficiency. You need to take these vitamins therapeutically till the levels reach normal and then prophylactic doses should be continued for maintaining these levels.

She is having heart problem from last 3 years please suggest appropriate diet for her?

General Physician, Delhi
Diet for a patient of heart problem - should include vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Avoid high-fat foods eg red meat, cheese and high-sodium foods (such as canned or processed foods). Take oats, salads, and low salt in your diet. Avoid fatty foods. Food rich in fibre is good for them. Apart from diet moderate exercise is also essential. Hope this helps you.

High Resting Heart Rate is Bad!

High Resting Heart Rate is Bad!

Data show people with a high-normal resting heart rate of 80 to 99 beats per minute had shorter lifespans than those whose BPM ranged from 60 to 69, but researchers suggested increased physical activity may mitigate the effect. The study, presented at the World Heart Federation's World Congress of Cardiology & Cardiovascular Health, showed being active was associated with longer survival, and researchers said exercise may reduce the overlooked risk of a high-normal resting heart rate.

Hello Doctor I am 48 years old. I have BP 130/90 so I am using mild dose tablets only (ie) 2.5 mg. Amlip. But two weeks back I got my BP check up on 25/03/17 It was 140/90. The doctor asked me to take 5 mg daily. He is BHMS. From that day onwards I was taking 5 mg. Suddenly yesterday I saw my legs got swelled as in pregnancy time. I don't know why? Suggest me and clarify.

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Some times Amlip can cause leg odema. You can go back to your earlier 2.5 mg dosage and see BP pattern. If swelling disappears then continue T. Amlip and we can add some other small dose anti HT depending upon BP if required and later on discontinue T. Amlip. If leg swelling does not disappear after reducing T. Amlip then you may need to do blood and urine test like CBC, urine R, screat, S. Protein ,TSH to rule out kidney, thyroid or anemia problem.

You are hurting persons then going to depression status. You are unable to control your moods properly. Because of your psychological problems it affects on physical aspects also. You need behaviour therapy. There is need of change your behaviour. Better to consult psychologist in bangalore. You have to change your behaviour. Anger management techniques are helpful when anger comes divert it towards other aspects. Take anything or talk to your friends. Change the place or move from the place. Walk when you feel anger. Take new things when anybody hurt to you. Smile when anybody hurt to you. Maintain calmness is also good. Do not argue do not react the situations. Feel always comfortable. Control mouth movements. Eat chicklets when mood spoils. Take any fruit juice or ice cream. Take rest. Sleep properly. If you follow these techniques no need to consult any psychologist. If you unable then consult. Practice yoga and meditation. Ok best of luck.
