This could b either due to sensitivity due to loss of enamel surface or due to decay of tooth. Tooth decay can b treated by filling of tooth or by rct n capping of the decay is deep. Sensitivity can b reduced by using desensitizing toothpaste such as senquelf or sensodyne toothpaste by rubbing some amount of toothpaste onto your tooth surface n wait till 5 mins before rinsing it off. Get your teeth evaluated by dentist to know the cause of your problem n get treated accordingly. Regsrds.

Improvement in ef from second stenting depends upon whether your husband had viable myocardium. I am sure your doctors must have discussed this with you and tested for the same. Further course of action will depend upon success of second stenting. If ef doesn't improve he may need icd implantation in future. Hope your husband recovers soon. Good luck.

The Relationship Between Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure!

MD - Consultant Physician, Doctor of Medicine, MD

The Relationship Between Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure!

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure can trigger as well as worsen complications related to diabetes. Most people suffering from diabetes tend to develop hypertension later in their lives. Diabetes tends to increase one’s blood pressure, making him/her even more vulnerable to other heart diseases and cardio-vascular disorders. Diabetes often leads to a condition known as atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of the arteries. A combination of diabetes and hypertension drastically increases the risk of suffering from a heart disease. The risks of kidney diseases and retinopathy (damage to the tiny blood vessels present in the retina) also go up, resulting in blindness. With age, chronic hypertension can also result in numerous cognitive disorders such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (degenerative mental disorder).

Diabetes and high blood pressure complications-

Having diabetes increases your risk of developing high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems, because diabetes adversely affects the arteries, predisposing them to atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to further blood vessel damage, and stroke, heart failure, heart attack or kidney failure.

Compared with people with normal blood pressure readings, men and women with hypertension have an increased risk of:

  • Coronary artery disease ( heart disease)
  • Strokes
  • Peripheral vascular disease (narrowing of the arteries in the legs and feet)
  • Heart failure

Even high yet normal blood pressure or pre-hypertension (defined as 120-139/ 80-89 millimetres of mercury or mmHg) has an impact on your health. Studies show that people with normal yet high range blood pressure readings, over a 10-year period of follow up time, had a two to three-fold increased risk of heart disease.

How to prevent Diabetes and Hypertension?

  1. Walking for about 40 minutes each day or engaging in any type of aerobic exercise can better one’s heart health. Chalk out an exercise plan upon consulting the doctor
  2. Limit drinking and abstain from smoking
  3. Go for regular kidney check-ups
  4. Eat food rich in fiber such as vegetables, fruits, breads or whole grain cereals
  5. Examine blood pressure as well as blood sugar levels regularly at home
  6. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga to cut down on stress level; as stress is one of the major contributors to diabetes and the subsequent hypertension
  7. Shed off your extra pounds as blood pressure escalates with weight

Hello. I am 35 year old for last one year I am taking ecosprin 75 mg one time in a day as my family physician suggested with Rosofit 5 mg. Because my cholesterol levels was very high. Last week I have done my lips profile test an report is normal. My family physician suggested to discontinue the tablets. But I feel like continuing the same as after one year my body may have developed dependency on these two tablets. Can I continue to take ecosprin.

1) You donot need Ecosprin, you just need statin for cholesterol control. 2) If now your cholesterol levels are normal, you should try reducing and stopping medication while following lifestyle changes like daily exercises for 40-45 mins, no smoking or drinking and eating a healthy heart diet. 3) It is always better to reduce medications if we can with lifestyle precautions and these medications donot cause any kind of dependency.

Please get your basic blood tests, cbc esr hb, lipid profile and blood sugar fasting done after 12 hrs of fasting and report. It might be acidity too. Hope you are not a smoker. Please report with your history.
