Sir. I am a 32 years old male. I have been suffering from white coat hypertension what should I do?

Sir. I am a 32 years old male. I have been suffering from white coat hypertension what should I do?
Nothing. White coat hypertension is not due to disease but only due to anxiety. Several studies have shown that blood pressure lowering medicines can do more harm than good. But, I would suggest you to take ambulatory blood pressure monitoring for 1 day to conclude that you don't suffer from essential hypertension.

No need for any test now as emergency.Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch. www.lybrate.com/drsajeev

In medical terms you have sinus bradycardia. That is common in young and active adults, especially if you are doing regular exercise. Don't worry, you are perfectly alright.

Hdl is needed in our body. It acts like a grease between organs so that to avoid friction and produces less heat which helps to maintain normal body temperature. It is especially found in abdominal areas between all digestive organs. So if it gets reduced. The opposite will happen like organs won't be able to show its efficiency and other heart and vascular functions gets disturbed. And the bad cholesterol tends to get deposited in all blood vessels hampering the blood flow. So ldl (bad cholesterol) is to lessened. Hope you understood. I tried my best to make you understand in simple terms. If you have any more queries, then please let me know. Take care.:)

Trouble in breathing while bending and lying down is not uncommon in heart disease. But such people get excessively breathless with walk, work or lifting weights. With symptoms of'chest hurt' and dizziness better to get heart and lungs examined.

When I do sex with my wife and then my heart beat are very fast what is the reason?
That is because sex is a good exercise. Your heart needs to work more at that time so it beats fast.
