I am 49 years female. Have high cholesterol total cholesterol 262 and LDL 177. Please advise.
Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Weight can be reduced by a regular exercise (walking for an hour every day) and cutting down on sugar, carbohydrates, like cereals and potatoes and increase in salads and fruits. See a physician for your thyroid problem.

Hello, Kindly mention your age as well, Blood pressure ranging between 150-160/90-100 is considered as raised blood pressure and is a high risk to develop circulatory disorders even if you have no symptoms present. Kindly be careful and consult a physician near you. You need to monitor your blood pressure daily as the range fluctuates with time. You can go for homoeopathic treatment too as it is quite beneficial in such cases. Tc.

You should change your lifestyle. No need of medicine at this level. Take low fat low salt diet and do regular walk for 30 mins daily. Repeat your test after 3 months. If you seriously follow the advise test will come normal without any medicine.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all, pls calm down, this doesnot appear to be a serious problem. A lot of people experience numbness, redness and slight swelling on hands and arms while walking. This is because, while walking, most of the blood flow is diverted to legs. What you can do is that while walking, open and close your fists repeatedly. This will increase your blood flow. You may keep smileys balls in hand and squeeze them repeatedly. If this doesnot work, then you may get an ecg done, although, I doubt you will need it. So relax and keep walking. Thanks!

Usually the hypertension remains asymptomatic in many cases and only diagnosed accidentally or if there are any complications... Second thing if its only a one time reading then you should check it at least two more times on different days and then only you can decide if it comes more then you are hypertensive.. If it comes normal then you can maintain it by walk (exercise, pranayam), salt restrictions... If it comes higher than the normal range then you should consider taking a homeopathic treatment which can bring it down to normal in time and you will not have to take the medicines lifelong, plus it also improves general health... For a good homoeopathic medicine consult with more details... Till then you may try taking Veretrum Viride 30 (homoeopathic).

No you must continue it because your bp is just at the margin of what's acceptable, if you leave medicines it may get high again, take low salt diet, do regular morning or evening walks / light exercise daily, eat low fat diet, do some yoga and pranayam, sleep property.

Hi Many factors can affect blood pressure, including: 1) The amount of water and salt you have in your body 2) The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels 3) Your hormone levels You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death. I read your query, by the information I have in hand my advice to you would be 1) Keep a BP daily record for at least one week 2) Basic tests should be one to rule out cardiac issues 3) unless any recent evaluation has been done I would advice these test ECG ECHO Lipid Profile TSH Get back to me with a detailed history and  old / new records for a better individualized advice.

Hi lybrate-user, High blood pressure, is a serious health condition that can lead to heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure if not taken proper care. Here are some effective natural home remedies for High Blood Pressure- 1. Watermelon Seeds - Watermelon seeds reduces blood pressure levels and also helps a lot with arthritis. A. Grind equal quantities of dried watermelon seeds and poppy seeds. Take one teaspoon of this mixture in the morning on an empty stomach and again in the evening. B. Else, add two teaspoons of gently crushed, dried watermelon seeds to one cup of boiled water. Steep it for about an hour, then strain it. Take four tablespoons of this water at regular intervals throughout the day. 2. Fenugreek Seeds - Fenugreek seeds are an effective ingredient for lowering high blood pressure due to their high potassium and dietary fiber content. A. Boil one to two teaspoons of fenugreek seeds in water for about two minutes, and then strain it. B. Put the seeds in a blender and mix it into a paste. C. Eat this paste twice a day, once in the morning on an empty stomach and once in the evening. Follow this remedy for two to three months to notice a significant improvement in your blood pressure level. 3. Garlic - Both raw and cooked garlic help control high blood pressure and at the same time reduce cholesterol levels. A. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. B. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day. 4. Banana - Bananas, highly rich in potassium are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Having one or two bananas daily is recommended. 5. Onion Juice - Onions have also been found to lower your blood pressure due to the presence of an antioxidant flavonol called quercetin. A. Try to eat one medium-sized, raw onion daily. B. You can also mix one-half teaspoon each of onion juice and honey and take it twice a day for one to two weeks. 6. Honey - Honey can reduce pressure from the heart and also has a calming effect on blood vessels, hence it can be helpful in reducing high blood pressure. A. Eat two teaspoons of honey on an empty stomach each morning. B. You can also mix one teaspoon each of honey and ginger juice with two teaspoons of cumin seed powder. Eat it twice a day. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
