What are the primary actions to control the blood pressure and sugar at the initial stages for children's.
My mom age 57 years old. She has high BP and is on medication since 3-4 years for high BP. Dr. had prescribed Telsartan active later changed to Tazloc beta 2-3 months ago as she had breathing problem while walking climbing stairs. But from 2-3 weeks she has swelling in her ankle, foot & hands areas so Dr. prescribed Torsemide 5 mg. But swelling did not subside. How long will it take for this swelling to subside? Is it time to be worried? Is it symptoms for problems related to kidney? Kindly guide me.

Hello Doctor! I am 26 years old male. I have a slight breathing trouble when I go to sleep. I couldn't breathe properly when I'm lying on my sideways and it worsens when I'm lying on my stomach or on my back. When consulted ENT specialist, he told me that there is growth in my nostrils which blocks free flow of air. He suggested me not to go for any surgeries as it is not long-term effective, instead, he suggested me to take nasal drops (otrivin o, nasivion, flutiflo). But certain researches say it is not advisable to take these nasal drops regularly. I don't have asthma or any other troubles. My height is 170cm and my weight is 74kgs. Please advice me some natural ways to cure. Thank you Doctor!

When it comes to preventing and treating high blood pressure, one often-overlooked strategy is managing stress. If you often find yourself tense and on-edge, try these seven strategies to reduce stress.
Get enough sleep. Inadequate or poor-quality sleep can negatively affect your mood, mental alertness, energy level, and physical health.
Learn relaxation techniques. Meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, deep breathing exercises, and yoga are powerful stress-busters.
Strengthen your social network. Connect with others by taking a class, joining an organization, or participating in a support group.
Hone your time-management skills. The more efficiently you can juggle work and family demands, the lower your stress level.
Try to resolve stressful situations if you can. Don’t let stressful situations fester. Hold family problem-solving sessions and use negotiation skills at home and at work.
Nurture yourself. Treat yourself to a massage. Truly savor an experience: for example, eat slowly and really focus on the taste and sensations of each bite. Take a walk or a nap, or listen to your favorite music.
Ask for help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from your spouse, friends, and neighbors. If stress and anxiety persist, ask your doctor whether anti-anxiety medications could be helpful.
Add in a healthy lifestyle — maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, regular exercise, and a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthful fats — and high blood pressure could be a thing of the past.
I had myocardial infarction in 2012 at age of 26. Angiogram has been done and found no blockage. Am taking only medications and since then consume Ecosprin AV-75. Is there a chance of heart attack/myocardial infarction for the second time even while taking Ecosprin tablets. Is it necessary to take tablets for lifetime? What are the side effects am still 29, married and have one child. Please clear my doubts it would be of great help.
Cholesterol is one of those terminologies that need a clear and fresh understanding, right from scratch. It is nothing but obvious and common for you to primarily know about the ill effects of cholesterol and what it does to your body; from increasing the risks of cardio-vascular diseases to adding to your waistline. However, it is time we all got a fresh perspective on what cholesterol is.
So, to start off, what is actually cholesterol?
It is waxy substance produced by the liver which plays an important role in the proper functioning of the cells, digestive process and synthesis of Vitamin D in the body. As cholesterol is a fat based substance that does not dissolve in blood, it is transported, throughout the body, by a protein called the ‘lipoprotein’. The lipoproteins that carry cholesterol are of two types: Low-Density
Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL)
Why is LDL ‘bad’?
LDL is known as ‘bad’ cholesterol as it is responsible for plaque formation that reduces flexibility of the arteries and tends to clog them.
Why is HDL ‘good’?
HDL is known as the ‘good’ cholesterol because it gets rid of excessive LDL from the arteries and transports them to the liver where they can be broken down. Too much of bad cholesterol in the body can lead to clogged arteries that may result in stroke or a heart attack. Now that you know that too much LDL cholesterol is bad for you, you need to keep it under control while raising the good cholesterol (HDL) levels.
In order to do that, you need to make certain modifications in your lifestyle.
Some of them can be:
- Eat foods that are good for the heart: Avoid eating saturated fats and trans-fats as they raise LDL levels in the body. Instead, choose foods that are rich in the heart healthy monounsaturated fats such as almonds and olive oil. Also, include foods that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil; these fatty acids increase HDL levels in the blood.
- Exercise regularly: Exercise not only helps you to lose calories but also increases the good cholesterol levels in the body. Aim for 20-30 minutes of cardiovascular exercises in the form of brisk walking, running or cycling to keep your heart muscles healthy.
- Stop smoking: Smoking can cause the blood vessels to narrow down, thus increasing blood pressure, owing to the constriction of the blood vessels. Quit smoking right away and your ticker will thank you for it. Remember to limit alcohol consumption as well.
- Maintain optimal weight levels: It’s time to get rid of all the excess fat from the body, especially the visceral fat (abdominal fat). Obesity increases the risk of heart diseases and also has a negative effect on the cholesterol levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.
