My mother is a housewife and she has very low blood pressure rate from last two month.

You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems. Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure. Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock. Certain medicines and substances can lead to low blood pressure, including:     * Alcohol     * Anti-anxiety medicines     * Certain antidepressants     * Diuretics     * Heart medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure and coronary heart disease     * Medicines used for surgery     * Painkillers Other causes of low blood pressure include:     * Nerve damage from diabetes     * Changes in heart rhythm (arrhythmias)     * Not drinking enough fluids (dehydration)     * Heart failure You can do a few things to prevent low blood pressure     * Drinking more fluids     * Getting up slowly after sitting or lying down     * Not drinking alcohol     * Not standing for a long time     * Using compression stockings so blood does not collect in the legs Get these test done to find cause of blood pressure problems tests include Thyroid functions, ECG, ECHO.

My son aged 29 years went for routine health check up casually about three months before and results showed triglyceride 490. Our family doctor advised physical activity besides prescribing some Omega supplement and the advice was promptly followed. After three months again we went for blood test. Now triglyceride level went higher to 600. What could be the reason and how to control triglyceride?

Is there any solution for heart muscles weakening, I'm afraid that is it leads to a heart transplantation?
Hello lybrate-user. Heart transplantation is the lasr resort, only after all the options are exausted. There can be quite improvement with proper treatment which includes diet, exercise and medications. Apart from this there are options for devices which can improve the pumping. If the heart weakness is due to a reversible cause then it can also be taken care of. So be optimistic and enjoy life.

Cardiac Arrest In 30s: The Challenges Of Restarting Your Life!

FDNB, MD, MBBS
Cardiologist, Delhi
Cardiac Arrest In 30s: The Challenges Of Restarting Your Life!

With changing lifestyles, disease patterns have also changed. Cardiac arrest, which was earlier reported in the elderly only, is now affecting people as young as in their 30s. This is attributed to a combination of factors including poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, environmental toxins and pollution, smoking, drinking, caffeine and stress levels. There is also an inevitable risk of family history and advancing age. However, as an individual is affected by cardiac arrest in the 30s, there is a lifestyle change that is required. This is not only to prevent a recurrent cardiac arrest, but also to reduce the pace of damage from the current one.

The change is not unidimensional one needs to change one’s physical, emotional and mental aspects to come up with a revised lifestyle.

  1. Medications: There are a set of medications to be taken regularly. So learn to identify and take them. A pill box that can contain all the pills for a week, sorted by the time to be taken, can come in handy.
  2. Diet changes: While it is always advisable to watch what you eat, a cardiac arrest leaves one with no choice. Reduce the intake of sodium and calcium and increase potassium. Avoid processed and packaged foods. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat dairy. Eat more of foods with antioxidants.
  3. Slow down: After a cardiac arrest, the person tends to slow down the physical pace of life. Lifting heavy weights may be best avoided. If you were a regular workout person, it needs to be modified to avoid excessive stress.
  4. Constant watch: Be it your blood pressure, weight, cholesterol or other blood tests, these should be periodically monitored and watched for any alarming differences. Keep your doctor updated so you are not caught off guard.
  5. Work schedule: This will definitely need to be reworked at, especially if your job is a highly demanding one. The idea is not to stop working, but to relook at your schedule so you can contribute and at the same time not risk your health again.
  6. Emotions: While there is anxiety and depression, there is also a fear to tackle. The new modified lifestyle brings anxiety. The fact that you had a cardiac arrest at such a young age (unexpected in most cases) is depressing. The most prominent one though is of fear—will it happen again? How is it going to be? Will I survive? These questions can be haunting. It is definitely advisable to seek support from a counsellor if you do not have someone in your family or friends’ circle to talk to.

Cardiac arrest in the 30s is not easy. It comes with multiple challenges, but you can definitely overcome it.
