With a controlled life style and 30 min of walking can I get my bp to get low. I had sedentary life style for past 6 month and now I have left fired, junk and smoking completely. My diet is chapati daal chawal only with some fruits how much time will it take me to control my bp. I had bp around 140/104 on the 1st reading and 140/80 on the second check up but it fluctuates all the time I also had lipid profile test, kidney test and liver test but the were normal. Please let me know what steps should I take to make my bo go down.

Hi lybrate-user, Medication is often prescribed for hypertension. You can also help control it with simple natural remedies. Here are some of the home remedies which will help you prevent high blood pressure: 1. Lemons: Lemons help keep blood vessels soft and pliable and by removing any rigidity, high blood pressure will be reduced. In addition, you can help lower your chance of heart failure by consuming lemon juice regularly, due to its vitamin C content. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals. Simply drink a cup of warm water with the juice from half a lemon added to it each morning on an empty stomach. For best results, do not add salt or sugar. 2. Watermelon Seeds: Grind equal quantities of dried watermelon seeds and poppy seeds (khus khus). Take one teaspoon of this mixture in the morning on an empty stomach and again in the evening. Alternatively, 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. 3. Garlic: Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart. If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. 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 are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium. So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, currants, orange juice, spinach, zucchini, baked sweet potatoes, can notaloupe, and winter squash. 5. Celery: The high level of the phytochemical 3-N-butylphthalide present in celery greatly helps control high blood pressure. Phthalides help relax the muscles in and around arterial walls, thereby creating more space and allowing the blood to flow in without difficulty. At the same time, it can help reduce the stress hormones that constrict blood vessels, which contributes to high blood pressure. Try to eat one stalk of celery along with a glass of water daily. If you prefer, you can munch on celery throughout the day. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Dear lybrate user, take homoeopathic mother tincture rauwolfia q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for your problem of high blood pressure.

Hi have noted all your details, A triglyceride level of less then 300 mg/dl needs not to be treated with fenofibrinates. Asian population have high levels of triglycerides due to our genetics.In case you want to start medication ,start with low dose of statin like atorvastatin, they effect triglycerides also, and are safer then fenofibrinates. 45 min of strenous exercise should be done every day, 30 minutes of walk at speed not less then 5.1 km/hr should be done daily avoid ghee butter peanut oil, instead take olive oil or saffola. Add fibres to you diet avoid paneer cheese ,red meat and egg yolk change will take atleast 3 month repeat lipid after 3 months.

Dear Lybrate user *One common kitchen spice that can be very useful in comforting your stomach gas indigestion is cardamom. The volatile oil present in it helps to cure a number of digestive disorders include gas and indigestion. The cardamom seeds can be consumed alone or one can add roasted cardamom powder to the vegetables while cooking. Cardamom tea is also an excellent way to treat indigestion. Drinking the Cardamom tea several times a day will speed up your digestive process.

Hi, pituitary is the "master control gland" - it makes hormones that affect growth and the functions of other glands in the body. With pituitary disorders, you often have too much or too little of one of your hormones. Which might be to root cause to all these problems are facing. But before anything we need to pin point the problem with hormonal study. So go for these tests and consult a nearby endocrinologist.

1. The problem which you have been suffering since 1.5 years is suggestive of Hyper acidity. 2. There are medicines but diet plays very important and timely intake of food can reduce the repeated problems. 3. Drink more liquids, avoid drinking tea & Coffee during empty stomach. 4. Totally avoid eating spicy and junk foods for better life.

In order to reduce blood triglycerides level you need to lose weight (19 Kg), Exercise daily for 1 hr, reduce quantity of cereal (ex rice/ roti/ bread) in your meal, instead include a dairy item, plenty of vegetables, fruits, pulse/ meat in the meal, replace simple carbs like sugar, poatato, maida, rice, bread, noodles, macaroni with complex carbs like atta, bajra, ragi, barley, oats, jowar, dalia, suji, salads, whole fruits, avoid junk/ fast/ street/ processed/ packaged/ fried/ sugary foods/ soft drinks/ alcohol.

How to reduce creatine, my mother us operated angioplasty 2 years back. What should be diet to reduce creatine.
Hi. Your question is very true, practical and common. Many patients who have raised creatinine have this question in their mind and search for good answers. Actually, there is much less in capacity of diet changes to have any effect on creatinine level. But with diet, you can make sure that you don't land up in additional problems which are common on the background of raised creatinine. Avoid fruit juices, coconut water, bananas as these have large amount of potassium in it. Consuming large amount of proteins may also be bad in certain conditions. Take care.

• Try to keep your consumption of saturated fats to a minimum. • Aim to replace saturated fats, with moderate amounts of ‘good’ fats also known as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. • Grill, steam, boil and bake foods instead of frying and roasting. • Eat plenty of fibre-rich foods. • Enjoy healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts and seeds, olives etc. • Eat at least two portions of fish per week, one of which should be oily (Choose from salmon, mackerel, sardines, pilchards or herring). • Include foods enriched with plant stanols/sterols, which are clinically proven to lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. • Stay physically active. at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise on five or more days of the week. • Avoid smoking. • Try and manage your stress levels.  Foods to avoid  Limit saturated fats and oils, such as butter, palm oil, and coconut oil. Instead, use soft vegetable oils, such as olive or canola oil.  Avoid trans fats or partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. These oils go through a process that makes them solid. They're found in some hard margarines, snack crackers, cookies,and chips.  Limit fatty meats such as corned beef, , ribs, steak, ground meat, hot dogs, sausage, bacon, and processed meats . Also limit organ meats like liver and kidney. Replace with skinless chicken or turkey, lean beef, pork, lamb, and fish. Try some meatless main dishes, like beans, peas, pasta, or rice.  Limit meat, poultry, and fish to no more than two servings, or 140 g, a day. Remember that a serving is about the size of a deck of playing cards.  Limit egg yolks.  Limit milk products that contain more than 1% milk fat. This includes cream, most cheeses, and nondairy coffee creamers or whipped topping (which often contain coconut or palm oils). Instead try fat-free or low-fat milk (0% to 1% fat) and low-fat cheeses.  Limit snack crackers, muffins, quick breads, croissants, and cakes made with saturated or hydrogenated fat, whole eggs, or whole milk. Try low-fat baked goods, and use any spreads or toppings lightly.  Instead of using butter or margarine on bread, try dipping it in olive oil.  Avoid fast foods like hamburgers, fries, fried chicken, and tacos. They are high in both total fat and saturated fat. When you eat out, choose broiled sandwiches or chicken without skin, salads with low-fat dressing, and foods that aren't fried. Ask the server to leave off the cheese and high-fat dressings like mayonnaise. Foods that decreasse CHOLESTROL 1. Oatmeal, oat bran and high-fiber foods Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the "bad," cholesterol. Soluble fiber is also found in such foods as kidney beans, apples, pears, barley and prunes.Soluble fiber can reduce the absorption of cholesterol into your bloodstream. Five to 10 grams or more of soluble fiber a day decreases your total and LDL cholesterol. Eating 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal provides 6 grams of fiber. If you add fruit, such as bananas, you'll add about 4 more grams of fiber. To mix it up a little, try steel-cut oatmeal or cold cereal made with oatmeal or oat bran. 2. Fish and omega-3 fatty acids Eating fatty fish can be heart healthy because of its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce your blood pressure and risk of developing blood clots. In people who have already had heart attacks, fish oil — or omega-3 fatty acids — reduces the risk of sudden death. I recommend eating at least two servings of fish a week. The highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids are in: • Mackerel • Lake trout • Herring • Sardines • Albacore tuna • Salmon • Halibut You should bake or grill the fish to avoid adding unhealthy fats. If you don't like fish, you can also get small amounts of omega-3 fatty acids from foods like ground flaxseed or canola oil. You can take an omega-3 or fish oil supplement to get some of the benefits, but you won't get other nutrients in fish, such as selenium. If you decide to take a supplement, just remember to watch your diet and eat lean meat or vegetables in place of fish. 3. Walnuts, almonds and other nuts Walnuts, almonds and other nuts can reduce blood cholesterol. Rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, walnuts also help keep blood vessels healthy. Eating about a handful (1.5 ounces, or 42.5 grams) a day of most nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachio nuts and walnuts, may reduce your risk of heart disease. Just make sure the nuts you eat aren't salted or coated with sugar. All nuts are high in calories, so a handful will do. To avoid eating too many nuts and gaining weight, replace foods high in saturated fat with nuts. For example, instead of using cheese, meat or croutons in your salad, add a handful of walnuts or almonds.
