Hi ,sir
Can you tell me please how to control the increasing blood pressure problem in age 45.
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 and permanent cure without any side effects

I do not want to interfere in treatment but incidence of drug resistant TB is quite common in our country. I treat my patients by giving AKT4 for 2 months after doing Liver function tests (repeat after a month) AKT3 for 6 more months. I explain them to take liver friendly diet like it is given for Jaundice , lots of carbs + proteins like toned milk & milk products ,eggs but No heavy Non veg or other heavy foods. Total rest. No need to Isolate if it is Not an open case. Keep the person busy by teaching some crafts ,like knitting & embroidery for women but No exposure to kitchen heat/ sun. This is general rule for all , total cost comes to less than 1000/- yes one thousand only including tests. Why should a worker of my area travel to DOTS center? You have done the right thing for getting investigated and following the treatment so far. Talk to your doctors about your problem and do let us know.Lymph nodes in abdominal TB have also vanished after a month in one of our cases. In your case ,there is minimal fluid which does not need aspiration and removal,it will clear away and so will the other lymph nodes. After complete course of treatment for TB or during treatment ,some white shadows are seen ,may be these are healed patches but we have to go by totality 1) ESR coming down 2) no fever 3) appetite better 4) weight gain 5) improvement in general condition.

Exercising Post Heart Attack

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Play video

I am Dr. Nitish Chandra. I am a director incubational cardiologist at Fortis Escort Heart Institute, New Delhi. I have been working here for the last 22 years. Today I would like to give a very simple tip after the heart attack that how much they should exercise.

This is a very common myth that after the heart attack patients should not exercise but after the heart attack treatment is over and the patient goes home, he should start exercising. Here, the patient says that, “We don’t have time; we are busy.” So the tip is that they should follow the Rule of 4. This rule means that they should exercise for at least 4 days in a week. During every day, they should exercise for 40 minutes and during that time they should cover a distance of 4 Kilometers. So this is what I the Rule of 4. The Rule of 4 means 4 times a week for 40 minutes each covering a distance of 4 kilometers. If a person does this much of exercise, then he can keep his heart healthy. So, you people should not have this excuse that “I don’t have time.” If you follow the Rule of 4, you can keep your heart healthy.

If you have any further queries or questions regarding heart and heart related illnesses, you can contact me on lybrate.com.

high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Common examinations for blood pressure changes contact me on lybrate for proper treatment & medicine or take appointment blood pressure monitoring - your healthcare provider may take your blood pressure when you visit the office to check for changes in blood pressure. Quit smoking exercise most days of the week, for at least 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Try to reduce the amount of stress in your life by following relaxation techniques. Eat a diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, low in sodium, with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Lose weight if you are overweight. Avoid alcohol use. Limit caffeine intake. Again, with low blood pressure, safety and treating the underlying cause is the greatest concern. Try to reduce the amount of stress in your life. Use relaxation techniques to decrease the amount of anxiety you have. If you feel anxious, place yourself in a quiet.

Hope he has been checked thoroughly for any cardiac problem and treated properly. The diagnosis is important to analyse his case. You can update the current reports and his treatment plan for further clarification. Let him eat a light food which is easy to digest. If possible let him move about at home which will aid proper digestion.

1. Sleep well and regular. Irregular sleep can have some serious consequences. It affects both our physical health and also contributes to anxiety and stress. Anxiety as such also leads to disruptions in sleep. When feeling anxious, always try to get a full 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and it can work wonders to improve your condition. 2. Always keep smiling. Take a quick break in between your hectic work to get some laughs with your friends. Laughter can reduce depression and anxiety and has proven benefits. 3. Tidy up your living space or workspace. Keep your things clean and clutter-free. That helps us think clear and thus reducing levels of anxiety. 4. Say thank you often. Expressing your thanks for something helps reduce anxiety. 5. Eat smart. Eating more of foods which are rich in vitamin b and omega-3 fatty acids and also healthy whole grain carbs. Vitamin b contributes to good mental health. While omega 3 fatty acids help with both depression and anxiety. Whole grain foods boost serotonin and helps us remain poised. Eating high-sugar content food and processed foods can increase levels of anxiety. 6. Learn to breathe well and relax. Short, shallow breaths arise when you are tensed. So consciously breathing deeply, plus increasing the duration and depth of breathing helps relax the body and mind to a great extent. 7. Meditate. Meditation has so many positive effects on stress, mood, and anxiety. Club meditation with positive thinking to improve your general well-being and overall health. Yoga is also very effective to take off stress from the body and mind by deep relaxation and breathing techniques. 8. Chill and be silent. Reduce the noise and clutter talk that contributes to anxiety. Find time for yourself and be alone to muse upon your own matters without anyone disturbing you. 9. Worry. Yes, we can cause ourselves to freak out, but only for a certain amount of time. When something weighs heavily on your mind, or you believe something terrible is most definitely going to occur, commit to only creating that worry for 20 minutes. Think of all the possible outcomes of the scenario, figure out some game plans, and then quit thinking about it after 20 minutes go by. Have a friend call after the allotted time has passed to avoid the temptation of going over the time limit. Or schedule some of that playtime right afterward. 10. Plan for the future but do not worry about it. Make time tables and to-do lists so that you will not be worried about finishing stuff and so that you can increase your productivity. 11. Be positive. When you feel anxious, train your mind to think and feel positive and give reinforcement to yourself that you can handle any situation. This will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety symptoms. 12. Smell relaxing stuff. Go out to your garden. Smell a fresh rose. Take a deep breathe and allow the relaxation to course through your whole body. You can also use relaxing aroma therapy and use it indoors. 13. Go out and spend time with your friends and family. Spend time with your pets social support reduces anxiety and stress to such a great extent that it is almost always bearable. So next time you get on your nerves, go out with your friends, chat with them, watch a movie, spend some time watching the waves in the beach with your partner, talk to your siblings. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

You should get your father a book written by Dr. Dean Ornish entitled, 'Reversing the Heart Disease'. It will give you all the guidance and more about dealing with heart disease. As for smoking I am sure he would have been told strictly to avoid consumption of tobacco smoke by the heart surgeons. Here are the things you can do for your father to quit smoking: Ideally you must spend a lot of time convincing him to stop the smoking. Of course he will agree sometimes and sometimes he will change his mind. Giving up is difficult but if you highlight the dangers of smoking regularly he may one day decide to quit. Never give up on him. Because of his age and quantity of cigarettes smoked and the length of abuse, he will find is even harder. When quitting, he must take one day at a time. If he looks too far ahead he will get discouraged and will give up. If he sits and counts the number of days he has given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. He must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if he fails one day, he must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. His persistence and yours will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But his desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms him about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and he must remind himself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Having had a heart surgery can you imagine the extent of damage he still doing to his heart?! So he must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for him. In fact it is highly toxic too. He will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. He should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep him occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. Everyone who can help him should be involved until he succeeds. If all this does not work, you can admit him into a rehabilitation center and let him stay there until he has completely quit the habit.

What is the normal range, maximum range and ideal range of diastolic and also diastolic blood pressure?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
What is the normal range, maximum range and ideal range of diastolic and also diastolic blood pressure?
The normal systolic bp should not be more than 120 and diastolic bp should not be more than 80 below 40 years of age. Systolic bp in range 120-139 is although normal but at borderline indicating people with this level are at a greater risk of developing heart disease and similarily diastolic bp ranging 80-89, considered normal but towards borderline also indicates greater risk of developing heart disease------------

Good to know that your kidneys are normal in size and shape & ecg report is also normal. Remember, there is a difference between picture of an organ and its functioning, kidneys'appear' to be normal but are not functioning properly as blood urea & creatinine are very high. Kidneys are like a filter of body that retains the useful products like proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins & minerals. Urea and creatinine are by products of metabolism and are excreted in some amounts, but if filter called kidneys, start to fail, the levels of urea and creatinine start rising in blood and this is an indication of kidney failure. You may need blood dialysis/ abdominal dialysis depending upon various factors, as decided by your treating doctor, so that chronic kidney disease does not become worse. Do consult a renal specialist without delay & remember ckd (chronic kidney disease) can have an effect on an otherwise healthy heart.
