If this blood pressure range [ 140/90] comes after regularly taking of medicine that means your bp is under control by the effect of medicine and you should not withdraw the medicine and if that value is after withdrawal of medicine then you can leave it with a regular checkup and keep a watch on your bp.

For gaining weight you have to gain muscle. For that you have to eat optimum amount of protein which is eggs, fish, meat, milk and milk products, dal. You also have to eat good proportion of roti and rice with vegetables. Healthy fats also have to be incorporated. You have to eat atleast 6 meals in a day. Weight training exercise is a must. Whey protein can also be taken. But best results for whey is with weight training.

Yes you have been given the right injection. The dose of hcg should be 10, 000 iu. Did you travel when she was pregnant. Just give her proper rest, no sexual contact and no intercourse. After that within next 7-8 days her bleeding should stop.

Do not take medicines yet. Try to modify your diet, minimum oils and more of seasonal fruits and salads. Lemon water with honey taken empty stomach helps bring down fats in blood. Try diet therapy only, I am sure after 2 months of trial, your reports will be near normal, do not go for a repeat test earlier, do take good fats like a spoon of desi ghee/butter + a katori of assorted dry nuts every day. No chips/namkeens/samosas/street food as snacks, munch on apples and cucumbers and oranges.

I am 35 years old I have cholesterol 225. How can I reduce it? as early as possible.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

I am 35 years old I have cholesterol 225. How can I reduce it? as early as possible.
Hello dear High triglycerides and 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,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

I am 20 years old. How to reduce weight and cholesterol ?

DBCM (AM) General Physician
Alternative Medicine,
1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result youll feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Consult me in private for detailed treatment and to ascertain your personality symptomatically.

Start with hridaya vasti at some panchakarma centre near you. Orally start with arjunarishtam & arjun ksheerpak. Arjun & punarnava niruh vasti is also very good. Please see some good panchakarma expert.
