Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise you to consult a medical practitioner (allopathic or alternative medicine) for a clinical evaluation, assessment and treatment thereof. You may require to control the same through BP medications should it be an essential hypertension with no specific cause (idiopathic). Should it be secondary, underlying cause, if any, needs to be understood and remedied appropriately to control the rise in BP. Simultaneously, following are a few remedies that you can additionally try to control your hypertension - (a) Restrict salt. Sweets, greasy, oily, fatty and high calorie foods including fast foods are best avoided. (b) Take fennel seeds (1 tsp) post meals. Also, have a clove of fresh garlic twice daily (after food). (c) Streamline your diet & lifestyle. Take a Mediterranean diet mostly. Fresh cold water fish prepared in extra virgin olive oil can be consumed twice a week. In case you are a vegetarian, you may take omega-3 supplements daily. (d) Exercise for at least 30 minutes on a daily basis, walking being the safest. Daily de-stressing and relaxation either through yoga, meditation, listening to soothing music, socializing etc all should be part of the daily routine. (e) Realistic plan your day to day activities, and execute them one by one seamlessly. Avoid a burnout by all means. (f) Try having an uninterrupted & sound sleep of at least 7 - 8 hours on a daily basis. Your bedroom should be kept dark. Try avoiding night bulbs as they are likely to interfere with quality of sleep. Should you have difficulty falling asleep, take medical help immediately. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

Your blood cholesterol has nothing to do with your diet cholesterol. Actually Statin drugs have a lot of side effects. Change your lifestyle and eating habits your lipid profile will get better. Take a coenzyme q10 with novastat. Also some tips how to lead a healthy lifestyle. 1. Exercise at least 5 times per week 2. Eat whole/unprocessed foods at regular intervals, while being aware of physical hunger/fullness cues 3. Sleep 7-9 hours per night 4. Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a fat loss diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

Dear sir, if a person has a low blood pressure without experiencing any symptoms like dizziness, fainting etc. There is no problem. But if the same person takes stress, or anxiety or depression, can he get affected by cardiac arrest, heart problem, diabetes or dangerous health issue?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
If the blood pressure is low and no symptoms, then it is fine. But if you have any such symptoms, the immediate response should be take sugar in any form. Either glucose water, electral powder, ORS, etc. Stress, anxiety or depression are the things which affect all the individuals and yes it can cause heart and other problems. Best to continue exercising, so that it can be avoided.

Most common risk factors are family history, smoking, alcohol, high cholesterol, after 40, diabetes, bp etc. Some time reccurent central or radiating type of chest pain, breathlessness on exertion, swelling in the limbs are symtoms. Somtimes asymptomatic also. Simple test like ecg in opd level can provide information about heart problems along with risk factor assessment like blood tests like sugar and cholesterol.

I get chest pains and cough many times and I do smoke and I am not able to quit smoking.Please tell.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
I get chest pains and cough many times and I do smoke and I am not able to quit smoking.Please tell.
Dear Lybrate user, smoking is a choice and all choices are made by us. You can quit smoking only if you tell yourself that you can do it. Not when you accept in your mind that "you are not able to quit". You must have taken many challenges in your life - I am sure you don't want to be called a loser at this as well. You have detailed about having cough and chest pains- Its possible that you may develop infection like tuberculosis or later if you don't quit - the risk of lung cancer is also very high. Make the right choice- quit today.

Hello dear 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. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day. Drinking water at intervals keeps your body hydrated so that uric acid crystals do not form at all. A healthy intake of water can help flush excess uric acid out of the body. Increase your consumption of antioxidant-rich foods like cherries, blueberries, blackberries, grapes and pineapples. They prevent inflammation of the joints and help in the excretion of uric acid. Try apple cider vinegar. Not only is it known to lower uric acid levels, but it also helps to reduce arthritic pain, even when used as a topical application. Stay away from foods that can cause gout or trigger inflammation. These include beans, mushrooms, meat and fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines and crab. Although patients with gout are advised to limit alcohol intake, the best option would be to eliminate it completely. Alcohol not only increases the risk of gout it also increases the severity of symptoms. take tab. zyloric in 200 mg od only..all other medicines are ok.

7 Tips to Fix Your Cholesterol Without Medication :

1. Get the right cholesterol tests:

Check NMR particle sizes for cholesterol by asking your doctor for this test at Labcorp or LipoScience. You want to know if you have safe light and fluffy cholesterol particles, or small dense, artery damaging cholesterol particles. A regular cholesterol test won't tell you this.

2. Check for Metabolic Syndrome:

• Do you have a fat belly? Measure you waist at the belly button and your hips at the widest point -- if your waist/hip is greater than 0.8 if you are a woman or 0.9 if you are man, then you have a problem
• If you have small LDL and HDL particles, you have metabolic syndrome.
• If your triglycerides are greater than 100 and your HDL is less than 50, or the ratio of triglycerides to HDL is greater than four, then you have metabolic syndrome.
• Do a glucose insulin challenge test.

3. Eat a Healthy Diet. Eat a diet with a low glycemic load, high in fiber, and phytonutrient and omega-3 rich. It should be plant based, and you should consume plenty of good quality protein such as beans, nuts, seeds, and lean animal protein (ideally organic or grass fed).

4. Exercise.

5. Get Good Quality Sleep. Sleep is essential for healing your body, maintaining balanced blood sugar, and your overall health.

6. Use Supplements to Support Healthy Cholesterol Particle Size. These include:
• A multivitamin including at least 500 mcg of chromium, 2 mg of biotin and 400 mg of lipoic acid. For most you will take three capsules twice a day.
• 1000 mg of omega-3 fats (EPA/DHA) twice a day.
• 2000 IU of vitamin D3 a day at maximum. (Some people recommend less -- consult your doctor.)
• 1200 mg of red rice yeast twice a day.
• 2-4 capsules of glucomannan 15 minutes before meals with a glass of water.
• Broad-range, balanced concentration of plant sterols. You will usually take one capsule with each meal.

7. Consider Using High Dose Niacin or Vitamin B3. This can only be done with a doctor's prescription. It is useful to help raise HDL cholesterol, lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and increase particle size.

8. Use Low-Dose Statins ONLY If You Have Had Heart Disease or are a male with multiple risk factors, while carefully monitoring for muscle and liver damage.
