common causes of dry coughs are as follows: Viral infections we know as the common cold and flu. Allergies can also lead to a dry cough. Asthma,Hay fever, an allergy to grass and tree pollen, causes irritation to the eyes and nose and when the throat is affected, a cough results. Sensitivity to other particles such as animal fur, known as allergic rhinitis. Air pollutants can irritate the back of the throat causing a cough. This is the situation seen when non-smokers enter a smoky room. Treatment depends upon the underlying cause of dry cough. Home remedies such as honey soothe the lining of the tissues at the back of the throat. Conventional medicines such as cough suppressants reduce the activity of the cough reflex.

Complications of High Blood Pressure Persistent high blood pressure can result in multiple complications.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Some people with hypertension may react with alarm when they check their blood pressure at home or at the drugstore and the reading is elevated. It's not unusual for people with an isolated finding of elevated blood pressure to show up at the local emergency department with sudden concern, but in many cases, the real concern is not a single high reading, but the cumulative effect of persistent uncontrolled hypertension. Hypertension is a risk factor for many negative health outcomes, including heart failure, coronary artery disease, stroke, kidney disease, peripheral artery disease and hypertensive retinopathy, a disease of the eye. Hypertension is also associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus, which is why the united states preventive services task force has issued a recommendation for diabetic screening in people with high blood pressure. Good control of blood pressure results in a rapid reduction of risk for cardiovascular disease.

Hypertensive heart disease results from changes in both the structure of the heart and blood vessels and their function as the body adapts to abnormally high blood pressure. If you can imagine the heart as a pump operating against a fluid circuit, picture the increased work of that pump if pressure within the circuit is increased. Some of the changes caused by persistent high blood pressure can be partially reversed with treatment using ace inhibitor medications.

Hypertension results in wear and tear of vital organs and vessels as a result of mechanical stress.

Blood vessels have mechanisms to regulate blood flow throughout the body, and when high blood pressure occurs, the blood vessels constrict in initial response. Eventually, the walls of the blood vessels thicken and tissue damage occurs, resulting in hardening of the vessel walls.

Hypertensive disease of the eye is known as hypertensive retinopathy. In the retina of the eye, changes in the blood vessels eventually result in disruption of the integrity of the vessel, and blood or fatty acids may leak onto the delicate retinal tissue. This results in permanent vision change, and it's very preventable.

Complications of stroke can be due to hemorrhage of the blood vessels that supply the brain, or, more frequently, can result from poor blood flow through arteries damaged by persistent high blood pressure. Approximately 85% of strokes are ischemic, or due to poor blood flow. Another manifestation of hypertensive disease that affects the brain is hypertensive encephalopathy. This condition refers to a change in mental status, frequently accompanied by headache and nausea, that results from swelling in the brain caused by alterations in blood flow at very high blood pressure. This condition is associated with malignant hypertension, or hypertensive emergency.

Persistent high blood pressure is one of the leading causes of chronic kidney disease, frequently requiring dialysis. Blood is filtered through the kidneys, and when the small blood vessels of the kidney are damaged by chronic uncontrolled hypertension, the body becomes unable to filter waste. People with kidney damage eventually spend hours hooked to dialysis machines that can remove waste products from their bloodstream, or they may require a kidney transplant. In either case, prevention of the complication is preferable and less complex.

Unfortunately, it is easy to underestimate the cumulative effects of high blood pressure, since the damage is asymptomatic initially. It's important to recognize the inevitable consequences of ignoring persistent high blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure, it's important to realize the silent damage occurring over time if your blood pressure is not adequately treated. If you have a high blood pressure reading, you should repeat measurement on two more occasions. If your blood pressure remains above the level your doctor has suggested, it is essential to follow up. There are many excellent and affordable medications available for treatment of hypertension. Some people require a combination of drugs to maintain control. Whatever the case, the inconvenience of treatment is far exceeded by the benefits to your health over a lifetime.

My Hba1c reading is 5.8 as per my blood test last month. Do I need to be worried. Also lipid profile showed triglyceride level at 325 but my total cholesterol is 185. Do I need to worry about triglyceride and hba1c level or are they normal? I am 34 old healthy male.

You need to worry about both. If your fasting blood sugar level is below 110 then you need not worry. And with tryglycerides if it below 180 then it's a normal condition. You need to take medicines to normalise your cholesterol levels.

This is due to the anxiety disorder that you suffer from. Anxiety triggers hyper ventilation - short fast breathing that can in turn lead to the above symptoms. When you start experiencing these symptoms, sit down. Do ten rounds of deep breathing. Drink one cup of fresh fruit juice or almond milk. These are rich in natural ingredients that will help relieve the above symptoms. Consult a ayurveda physician and start taking ayurveda medicines.

How to increase EF in the heart. Is there any remedy in any medicines whether allopathic homeopathy or ayurvedic etc Thanks My EF level is only 22 pct and feeling fatigue very often.

Low EF happens either due to weakness of heart muscle or due to blockages in heart vessels. If it is due to blockages depending upon some factors it can recover or not. But if it due to muscle weakness then it cannot recover. The only thing you can do is take medicines and control your water intake so that you don't have water retention. Consult a Cardiologist for proper evaluation and treatment. And please DO NOT take any Ayurvedic or Homeopathy medications because these can do a lot of harm to you as they contain heavy metals which can lead to abnormal rhythms in heart.

Hi. Most common cause of such pain in your age group in stomach acidity. So you should try some cold milk or eno or any other acidity medicine. If no relief, then you should think of doing ecg and 2d echo tests. Take care.
