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 . Cap. Ecosprin gold-10 at night daily.

High cholesterol increases your risk of heart disease and heart attacks. You can improve cholesterol with medications, but if you'd rather first make lifestyle changes to improve your cholesterol, try these five healthy changes. If you already take medications, these changes can improve their cholesterol-lowering effect. 1. Eat heart-healthy foods Even if you have years of unhealthy eating under your belt, making a few changes in your diet can reduce cholesterol and improve your heart health. Choose healthier fats. Saturated fats, found primarily in red meat and dairy products, raise your total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol. As a rule, you should get less than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat. Choose leaner cuts of meat, low-fat dairy and monounsaturated fats — found in olive and canola oils — for healthier options. Eliminate trans fats. Trans fats affect cholesterol levels by increasing the "bad" cholesterol and lowering the "good" cholesterol. This bad combination increases the risk of heart attacks. Trans fats can be found in fried foods and many commercial products, such as cookies, crackers and snack cakes. But don't rely on packages that are labeled "trans fat-free." In the United States, if a food contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat in a serving, it can be labeled "trans fat-free." Even small amounts of trans fat can add up if you eat foods that contain small amounts of trans fat. Read the ingredient list, and avoid foods with partially hydrogenated oils. Eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids don't affect LDL cholesterol. They have other heart benefits, such as helping to increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or "good") cholesterol, reducing your triglycerides, a type of fat in your blood, and reducing blood pressure. Some types of fish — such as salmon, mackerel and herring — are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Other good sources of omega-3 fatty acids include walnuts, almonds and ground flaxseeds. Increase soluble fiber. There are two types of fiber — soluble and insoluble. Both have heart-health benefits, but soluble fiber also helps lower your LDL levels. You can add soluble fiber to your diet by eating oats and oat bran, fruits, beans, lentils, and vegetables. Add whey protein. Whey protein is one of two proteins in dairy products — the other is casein. Whey protein may account for many of the health benefits attributed to dairy. Studies have shown that whey protein given as a supplement lowers both LDL and total cholesterol. You can find whey protein powders in health food stores and some grocery stores. Exercise can improve cholesterol. Moderate physical activity can help raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol. With your doctor's OK, work up to at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Adding physical activity, even in 10-minute intervals several times a day, can help you begin to lose weight. Just be sure that you can keep up the changes you decide to make. Consider: Taking a brisk daily walk during your lunch hour Riding your bike to work Swimming laps Playing a favorite sport To stay motivated, find an exercise buddy or join an exercise group. And remember, any activity is helpful. Even taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing a few situps while watching television can make a difference. 3. Quit smoking If you smoke, stop. Quitting might improve your HDL cholesterol level. And the benefits don't end there. Within 20 minutes of quitting, your blood pressure and heart rate decrease. Within one year, your risk of heart disease is half that of a smoker. Within 15 years, your risk of heart disease is similar to someone who never smoked.

I am a 32 year old man with 5'5" height. Recently married, with a new born child. I have a history of high blood pressure hospitalized in 2015 end. I have taken measures to lower my blood pressure by lowering my weight from 75 kgs to 62 kgs by checking on my diet (mainly salad and non-oily foods) and mild exercise. But recently, I learned that when I eat normal cooked foods like rice, dal and some fried stuff, my weight increases quite quickly. (70 kgs presently) I am fed up of the salad and other diet measures I used to take. Kindly, suggest some measures to increase my metabolism and stay in shape.

Raised blood pressure is not a disease in itself. It is just a sign of some underlying disorder. Homeopathy offers good prognosis for cases of essential hypertension. The treatment is based upon the cause and the totality of the case. A constitutional homoeopathic treatment will cure you permanently. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

8 Steps to Heart by Healthy Eating

MBBS, MD-General Medicine, DM - Cardiology
Cardiologist, Secunderabad
8 Steps to Heart by Healthy Eating

Choose wisely
Be mindful about choosing heart healthy foods; for example:
- plant-based diets low in fat, salt and added sugars
- high fiber and whole grains
- lean protein
- foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseed, salmon and other fish, certain oils and nuts)

2. Read food labels
The labels on the side of food and beverage packaging provide a lot of useful information about the nutritional content, including calories, sodium, cholesterol, fat, sugars and key vitamins per serving.

3. Mind your portions
Many of us overeat without really knowing it. Portions at restaurants even the size of bagels, baked goods and other prepared items have steadily gotten bigger over the years. Know how much is too much, and which foods are better to load up on. Some people find it helpful to visually divide their plate and pre-portioning healthy foods for the week.

4. Learn how to cook healthy
How you prep your food is important; try to avoid frying food and substitute unhealthy fats when possible. It's also best to make snacks and meals from scratch and limit processed foods, which often contain hidden sodium and added sugars.

When you do eat out try to reduce your calories, fat and salt by asking for:
- no added butter or salt
- half of the portion to be boxed up before they plate it for you
- the dressing on the side

5. Limit alcohol
Experts advise limiting it to one drink a day for women and two for men.

12 fl oz of
Regular beer
8-9 fl oz of
Malt liquor (shown in a 12-oz glass)
5 fl oz of
Table wine
 

3-4 fl oz of
Fortified wine
(such as sherry or port; 3.5 oz shown)
2-3 fl oz of
Cordial, liqueur, or aperitif (2.5 oz shown)
1.5 fl oz of brandy or cognac
(a single jigger or shot)
 

1.5 fl oz shot of 80-proof distilled spirits


6. Don't shop hungry
If you go to the grocery store hungry, you are more likely to make unhealthy impulse buys.

7. Keep a food diary
This is one of the best ways to look critically at your patterns of eating over time. Based on this information, you can make healthy changes. There are also nutritional and food tracking apps that can help.

8. Ask for help
Don't go it alone or attempt to cut out major foods groups or make too many changes at once; your efforts can backfire. Talk with your health care provider or nutritionist about how many calories you should be consuming each day and come up with an eating plan that is realistic and fits your life. Ask your partner or family to help you stick to a healthy diet.


A healthy diet can help you maintain a healthy body weight and control your blood cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.

Hypertension

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi

Hello friends, me Dr Sumit Dhawan hun aur me ek homoeopathic doctor hun. I practice in Delhi. Aaj hum discuss karenge Hypertension. Bohot log is problem se suffer kar rahe hai, yeh ek aisi beemari hai jo aaj kal young age log bhi suffer kar rahe hai. Aaj hum apko uske liye tips bhi denge aur conventionally jo purane allopathic doctors hain aur modern doctors hai, wo kya treatment de rahe hai aur hum usme apki kese help kar sakte hai being a homoeopathic doctor.

Aaj me sabse pehle apko yeh bata batana chahunga ki BP koi beemari nahi hai, BP bas ek androoni underlined cause hai uska jisse BP high hojata hai kisi ka. Iske symptoms kuch is tarah ke hote ha ki,

  • Tiredness
  • Ankho me blured vision
  • Nose bleeding
  • Chakkar ana

Aise lakshan hote hai iske.

Blood pressure do tareeke ka hota hai. Ek to normal hota hai jisme patient ko pata bhi nahi chalta hai. Islie me recommend karunga ki aap jab bhi doctors ke paas jae to ek bar apne BP zarur check karwae. Agar blood pressure high ata hai to usko theek kare. Use theek karne ke liye modern medicine me uska koi treatmnet nahi hai. Ye bas managable hai. Jese high BP ko low karne ki dawai hai lekin BP kyu badh raha hai, uski koi dawai nahi hai. Saalo tak log BP ki dawaiya lete rehte hai aur zada saalo tak dawaiya khane se baaki organs pe bhi effect aane lag jata hai jise hum Malignant Hypertenion bolte hai. Problems jese ki ankho ke neeche swelling, legs swelling, urinary problems etc hone lag jati hai. Ye saari problems long term medication ki wajah se aati hai.

Hume starting me he is problem k root cause ko theek kar dena chaie homoeopathy ke dwara, jisse ki aapko life long aise problems face na karni pade. Aaj hum apko bataenge ki sabse pehle conventionally kya-kya use hota hai. Isme modern medicines me Bea blockers, alpha blockers ya fir diuretics (jo apka urine ekdam se bahar nikal de aur apka BP low hojae), ye sab BP lowering agents hai. Jo bhi chemicals apko diye jate hai ya jo bhi synthesised hai wo apko immediately to harm nahi karenge, wo apko protect bhi karenge lekin uska treatment nahi hppaega. Uska sirf management he ho paega. Bp high hone ki wajah se koi aur nuksaan na ho, uska treatment diya jata hai. Ye sab lena bhi zaruri hai but sath he yeh bhi dekhna hta hai ki is problem ko theek kese kia jaae.

Homeopathy ek aisi pathy hai jise 250 saal pehle discover kiya gaya hai. Aur iske good effects se bohot logo ka faeda hum kar paa rahe hai. Yeh humare liye ek boon hai. Homeopathy ke dwara hum manage to karenge he problem ko aur sath me yeh faeda bhi denge ki Blood Pressure over high na jaae aur sath me apko benefit bhi milta rahe aur apka main root cause bhi khatam hota rahe.

Homeopathy se hume root cause nikalna hota hai ki BP high kyu horaha hai. Kya kidney ki wajah se problem hai? Ya heart ki wajah se problem hai? ya stress ya over work ki wajah se yeh problem hai?

To hume BP ke reasons ko theek karna hai. iske lie humare pass bohot sari medications hoti hai jo ki apke physical aur mental cause ko dekh ke select ki jaati hai.

Is problem ko theek karne ke liye 4 tips hai;

  • Exercise regime banaiye, jisse humara stress khatam hoga, body active hoga aur humare organs jese ki haert, kidney ki bhi exercise hojati hai. To isse apke BP causing agents kam honge.
  • Jo bhi apki medicines chal rahi hai, wo time pe lijiye aur sath me homoeopathic ki goodness bhi add kijiye jisse ki apke BP ka root cause bhi theek ho.
  • Apkon apna lifestyle change karn apdega. Jese ki apko apna salt quantity kam karna padge, fast food kam karna padega, Baking soda related food kam khae kyuki wo bhi BP increase hone ka reason hai, koi preserved food na khaae. Aap natural cheez khae, salad pe salt na daale.
  • Last is ki apko homoeopathy apni diet me add karna hai. Apko apne doctor ko consult karna chaie.

Aap chahe to mujhe bhi Lybrate ke through consult kar sakte hai aur aap meri website ke through bhi consult kar sakte hai.

All the best.

General Physician,
I don't know any home medicine. But remedy what you can use is reduce your body weight, do regular physical exercise with 45 mins of aerobics / brisk walking, dietary management and monitor diabetes control. Lipid insatiability can be accepted in diabetes. Monitoring for control of diabetes complications, including eye complications like diabetic cataract or retinopathy, are also very much important. Medicine part shall be taken care by your diabetologist. I believe your body pain shall go with exercise gradually.
