I am 30 years old male, every time I go to get by bp checked it goes way beyond the normal range of 120-80. I feel alot of anxiety the moment the doctor straps the band on my arm. But when I am in my normal day to day chores I am absolutely normal. Does that mean I have hypertension?

5 Reasons to Start Drinking Green Tea‎. Each one is amazing!
Green Tea is often referred to as the elixir of health. It is refreshingly light, has minimal calories and provides so many health benefits that you would love introducing this to your everyday fitness and health regimes. Check out some of the wonders of Green Tea-

1) Cuts Your Risk of Cancer - Major researchers from all over the world agree that drinking Green Tea regularly can reduce your risk of cancer. Several polyphenols found in Green Tea are potent antioxidants that can prevent the growth of cancer cells and reduce the opportunities for tumors to thrive!

2) Protects Skin - Consumed or applied Green Tea has several benefits as well. For instance, Green Tea, when applied directly on the skin can help block skin cancer and reduce tanning. That's the reason why growing number of companies now use green tea extracts in their moisturizers and sunscreens. At the same time, it soothes your skin from cuts and scrapes when applied directly.

3) Increases Metabolism - You have heard it before! But we will remind you of the same again. Green tea is often known for increasing metabolism, which in long run, with exercising and healthy dieting can help you lose more weight. Drink a cup about half an hour before exercising and you will feel more powerful.

4) Stay Young - Green Tea, when consumed at least two cups a day regularly can help you stay younger, by giving your skin a natural glow and ensuring that your arteries don?t clog fat and cholesterol.

5) Steadies your Blood Pressure - Sipping even a single cup of Green Tea every day can help in reducing your chances of getting hypertension and high blood pressure. This is because of polyphenols, which can keep vessels from contracting and raising blood pressure.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Chronic anxiety can cause heart palpitations but not heart failure, the heart beat becomes faster & pounding leading to the phobia that something might happen to the heart -do not get worked up & fear a situation, before facing he same calm yourself by analyzing it & the way you will face it -do relaxation techniques, do meditation & deep breathing exercises in the morning for 10-15 min daily -do walking, jogging for 20 min, also do moderate weight lifting in the gym at least 2-3 times a week, play outdoor games ,all these will help you build body as well as your confidence -to relieve stress read, listen to music, follow a hobby, meet friends & family members talk to them -try to have a peaceful sleep for at least 7-8 hours at night -have a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, whole grains & 7-8 glasses of water for proper digestion -if not much relief consult your doctor for medication.

BP is a fluctuating problem, the factors which lead to fluctuation are very variable. So the best way is to monitor periodically and adjust medication in consultation with your treating doctor accordingly. But if becomes high all of a sudden, first get evaluated for any reason which may be leading to this, so get your self evaluated by a cardiologist, also ensure that you avoid taking caffeine, high salt food in your diet like chips, popcorns, sauces, papads, chutneys etc. Because these lead to increase in BP.

High pulse rate can be due to fever or it may be due to cardiac issues. You need to get evaluated Get a ECG and 2D echocardiography done and also a fever panel including CBC, Urine Rm, and other tests depending on your symptoms. Like if you have fever with chills, get malaria typhoid screening done. About Stomach ulcers need time to heal and needs antacids like syp. Digene and pantoprazole 40 mg twice a day also you need an ulcer protective agents lie syp. Sucrafil twice a day for 3 weeks.

Why Women Are More Vulnerable to Heart Diseases Post Menopause

Why Women Are More Vulnerable to Heart Diseases Post Menopause

Menopause brings about a lot of changes in a woman's body. It not only signifies the end of her fertility and child bearing days, but it is a sign of growing age and the body progressing in a new direction of aches, pains and vulnerability. While some of these are natural, others can prove to be dangerous as it significantly increases the risk of heart disease (unlike common myths, women do get heart attacks). The risk factor is also goes up if the woman suffers from diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. One of the widely known, but well ignored fact remains that women with a sedentary lifestyle increase their risk and vulnerability to all of these diseases. A family history in heart disease can also turn into a risk factor when menopause sets in.

The natural age of menopause is considered to be around 50 and when a woman reaches this age, the estrogen levels in her body experience a sharp drop. This hormone is partly responsible in maintaining heart health in women. Other factors that are triggered during menopause include changes in body fat distribution from a gynoid to an android pattern, reduced glucose tolerance, abnormal plasma lipids, increased blood pressure, increased sympathetic tone, endothelial dysfunction and vascular inflammation. 

Experiencing menopause? Here's how you can lower your risk of heart disease

A healthy lifestyle never comes by accident, only by choice. And this is an essential key in controlling diseases that come as a side effect of menopause too. Here are some thing you can do:

  1. Walk / Exercise: This isn't a 5-day week practice. You need to exercise throughout the week in order to maintain heart health. It helps your heart to pump blood through your body and also reduces risks to other diseases like high blood pressure and cholesterol. One key benefit is that it helps keeps the weight off - that should be good reason to walk an extra mile.
  2. Choose a healthy diet: Most people mistake a diet to be about not eating the things you really like. A good diet can be made very tasty and can also be portioned in such a way that it leaves less room for craving. As always avoid the junk, deep fries and extra helping of cheese.
  3. Hormonal therapy: There has been contradicting evidence on hormonal replacement therapy for estrogen can lower the risk of heart disease. Some women continue to be advised this treatment based on their particular case history, especially for women who undergo surgical menopause (when the uterus and other reproductive organs many have to be removed due to life threatening conditions like cancer).
