How a person understand that his heart working properly,
Any schedule check up to catch any heart difficulty.
If one does not have symtoms of heart disease like chest pain or breathlessness on exertion palpitations any loss of conciousness or syncope one can takr it that he might not have any heart problem. But oatients with high blood pressure or diabetes can still have heart problem without much symptoms. An ECG is the first screening test that should be done. 2D Echo can be done if required on advise.

Hello, Kindly mention your age as well, Blood pressure ranging between 150-160/90-100 is considered as raised blood pressure and is a high risk to develop circulatory disorders even if you have no symptoms present. Kindly be careful and consult a physician near you. You need to monitor your blood pressure daily as the range fluctuates with time. You can go for homoeopathic treatment too as it is quite beneficial in such cases. Tc.

High Blood Pressure & Heart Problem - How They Are Related?

High Blood Pressure & Heart Problem - How They Are Related?

Most people spend extremely busy lives, which do not allow them close to enough time to exercise and stay fit, but has more than enough stress. This is made worse by bad diets. Both these factors together lead to high blood pressure levels. While knowing that one has high blood pressure is not going to lead to much cheer at all, being told that it is linked to heart disease is going to make one feel worse. But, what exactly is the link?

High BP and Heart Disease
When a person has high blood pressure, it means that the heart has no option, but to work harder to make sure that blood circulates around the body. As such, the heart becomes stiff. Apart from that, the arteries, which carry fresh blood filled with oxygen, are gradually damaged. This is because the inner linings get damaged. So when you suffer from high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, heart failures and atherosclerosis are not uncommon.

Complications
As a result of having a high blood pressure, the muscles of the heart begin to weaken over time. Heart failure is what eventually happens. When it does happen, there is a fluid which starts filling up the body. A heart check-up may show an irregular heartbeat rate. Many people who are not familiar with the heart feel that a heart attack is the same as a heart failure. However, this is not the case. A heart attack can lead to immediate death, while heart failure implies improper pumping of blood.

A continuous excess pressure on the heart often results in an enlarged left heart. The left ventricle, which is a part of the heart, expands and this means some very serious things including the prospect of a heart failure, a heart attack or even a sudden and lethal cardiac arrest.

However, this is not the only side of things when it comes to heart disease. Coronary artery disease is a possible result of high blood pressure as well. This means that chest pain and heart attacks can occur due to this. Along with these two, an irregular heart rhythm, which is medically known as arrhythmia, can develop.

The health of a person means that even a part or aspect of him or her being abnormal can cause some far-reaching effects and high blood pressure leading to heart disease is a good example of it. So, it is best to make sure that one’s blood pressure levels are kept in an acceptable range!

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

Hi there. Dry cough and chest pain which increases on coughing and sneezing warrants a chest x ray as symptoms suggest pleuritic chest pain (pain due to lung conditions) to rule out any lung conditions. Please upload your xray and may be I cud help you with that. If severe please see a physician. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, to reduce stress in your life, start some exercise, meditation or pick up any hobby. Try to understand the source of this stress, analyse it and find the best options to get rid of this. Stress might cause overeating, so please learn" stress management techniques" to lose weight, concentrate on food having lesser calories and more of proteins and nutrients. Have plenty of water. Go for regular exercise, yoga, cycling, jogging whatever you like. To have perfect relations with your wife, understand what she needs from you. Encourage her to express her feelings and needs and you also express your feelings and needs to her. Open communication, individual freedom of choice, faith, care and love make a healthy married relationship. Also, please understand that if you want to have an" ideal" life, which will have less stress, no sadness and excellent relationships, then you are sure to be disappointed. Every other person in this world would like to have this. But this is not possible. We all will have some stress in life, we cannot be always happy, there will be sad moments in our life. Our relationships also will never be perfect, because each person in this world is unique and hence it is difficult to get along with other people. Because of all this, it is important to have" rational expectations" from life and even from people around us. If you try to be a perfectionist, you might not be satisfied in life. Take care.
