I am 35 years old man with well built athletic body. I jog for 3 kms per day followed by 100 indian push ups, 100 squats etc. I also practice martial arts and go for trek pretty often. I never get tired no matter how steep the trek maybe. But in spite of all this, 3 out of 4 BP readings are high (150/85 - 160/85). 1 in 4 readings is normal (120-130/80-85). I also have moderate LVH but all the stress tests have been negative. I want to keep my BP low without medication. Please suggest.

Salil it's rather unfortunate that inspite of such a healthy lifestyle you have high blood pressure. You can take the following steps: 1) Try meditation. Probably you need to tone down your sympathetic drive. Don't do kapalbhati...meditation for mind relaxation. 2) Get your ambulatory bllod pressure checked. That way we can know how much part of the day you have high BP. 3) Lastly you could start some high blood pressure medication. Better to have your BP under control you can prevent many long term complications.

How Should Diabetic Patients Take Care Of Their Oral Health?

How Should Diabetic Patients Take Care Of Their Oral Health?

If your diabetes is not under control, you are more likely to develop problems in your mouth. The good news is you can keep your teeth and gums healthy. By controlling your blood glucose, brushing and flossing every day, and visiting a dentist regularly, you can help prevent serious problems in your mouth.

The Symptoms of Untreated Diabetes

The warning signs of diabetes affect every part of your body. After a blood test, you may be told by a doctor that you have high blood sugar. You may feel excessively thirsty or have to urinate a lot. Weight loss and fatigue are other common symptoms. Diabetes can also cause you to lose consciousness if your blood sugar falls too low. 

If diabetes is left untreated, it can take a toll on your mouth as well. Here's how:

  1. You may have less saliva, causing your mouth to feel dry. (Dry mouth is also caused by certain medications.)
  2. Because saliva protects your teeth, you’re also at a higher risk of cavities.
  3. Gums may become inflamed and bleed often (gingivitis).
  4. You may have problems tasting food.
  5. You may experience delayed wound healing.
  6. You may be susceptible to infections inside of your mouth.
  7. For children with diabetes, teeth may erupt at an age earlier than is typical.

Diabetes is a chronic, systemic disease and affects all parts of the body. While its effect on the nerves, eyes, kidneys, and skin is more common, their oral effects are less known. However, diabetes will vouch how they lost tooth and have dry mouth after their sugars went out of control.

  1. Oral Symptoms in Diabetics: There is a strong correlation between oral health and poorly controlled blood sugars. Some of the common oral indications of diabetes are as follows.
  2. Dry Mouth: There is less amount of saliva, which brings with it a whole lot of symptoms including soreness of the mucosa, ulcers, increased chances of infection, gum inflammation and tooth decay.
  3. Thrush: The saliva has higher sugar levels and attracts fungus (Candida in particular) which thrives in this dry, sugary environment. This produces a burning sensation in the mouth.
  4. Periodontal Disease: The gums get severely infected with gingival recession, where the gum line recedes exposing more of the tooth (tooth length seems to have increased). There is “pocket” formation, or space between the tooth and the gum which hosts a variety of bacteria. The periodontal ligament loses its strength to hold the tooth in place, and thereby teeth become mobile. If not worked upon in time, there could be multiple teeth lost.

Why People with Diabetes Are More Prone to Gum Disease

All people have more tiny bacteria living in their mouth now than there are people on this planet. If they make their home in your gums, you can end up with periodontal disease. This chronic, inflammatory disease can destroy your gums, all the tissues holding your teeth and even your bones.

Periodontal disease is the most common dental disease affecting those living with diabetes, affecting nearly 22% of those diagnosed. Especially with increasing age, poor blood sugar control increases the risk for gum problems. In fact, people with diabetes are at a higher risk for gum problems because of poor blood sugar control. As with all infections, serious gum disease may cause blood sugar to rise. This makes diabetes harder to control because you are more susceptible to infections and are less able to fight the bacteria invading the gums.

As much as it sounds alarming, it is not. There are easy, simple ways to manage these. In fact, good overall management of diabetes will ensure the oral symptoms are also maintained under control. Following are some things to do which will help in managing diabetes in general and the oral symptoms in particular:

As soon as diabetes is diagnosed, visit a dentist to take stock of the oral health condition. Any identified problem should be treated to avoid progression.

  1. Keep a close watch to ensure blood sugar remains as close to normal as possible.
  2. Switch to a toothbrush with soft or extra-soft bristles. This will help reduce the pressure on the gums and thereby prevent gum bleeding
  3. After every meal, remember to brush the teeth.
  4. Flossing at least once a day will help remove food deposits between the teeth. Alternately, use interdental brushes.
  5. Rinse at least twice daily using an antiseptic mouthwash.
  6. Denture-wearers should always clean them daily and never go to sleep with the denture in the mouth.
  7. Smoking with diabetics is a strict no-no, work on quitting at the earliest.
  8. Visit a dentist every 3 months to ensure oral issues are identified at the earliest and treatment done with minimal intervention.
  9. Any dental procedure should be done only when sugar levels are under control.

Managing diabetes is a lifelong commitment, and that includes proper dental care. Your efforts will be rewarded with a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

Ayurveda is an everyday life science that cures a number of maladies based on the use of herbs, yoga, oil massages and a number of lifestyle tweaks. Ayurveda uses everyday tweaks in order to reach the root cause of the ailment and cure it. Therefore, it makes use of a lot of everyday items that can make changes in the doshas that create an imbalance. Ginger is one such ingredient that has a number of health benefits as per Ayurveda. It is a root spice or flowering plant with an orange brown hue. Read on to know more.

Healing Digestive Properties: Ginger has a number of healing properties thanks to its chemical composition as they make it ideal for patients suffering from digestive problems such an irritable bowel syndrome. It also helps in improved production of the digestive juices which can help in flushing out toxins or Ama. This spice also keeps the digestive fires burning due to the heat that it emanates.
  2. Nutrition: Ginger also helps in better absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals from the food that we eat. This helps in better weight management as well as better digestion, which can prevent a number of diseases including cancer.

  4. Nausea: Small doses of Ginger are especially helpful for pregnant women who are suffering from acute and excessive morning sickness or nausea.
  5. Muscle Pain: Ginger can be used to reduce pain and soreness in one's muscles. It can be brewed as tea or taken in small slivers after a particularly intense workout. It is also known to help in relieving pain experienced by patients suffering from arthritis and other ailments related to joint and muscles. This condiment also helps in reducing the inflammation in the joints due to its proven anti-inflammatory properties.
  6. Diabetes and Heart Disease: Ginger is known to dramatically reduce the blood sugar level. It shows a reduction in the markers for oxidized lipoproteins, which also lowers the risk of high cholesterol and heart disease.
  7. Menstrual Pain: Just a gram or two of Ginger can be ingested on a daily basis to get relief from severe pain during menstrual cramps in women.

Dear , amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. It affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. Amitriptyline is used to treat symptoms of depression. I am sure the medicine was prescribed by a psychiatrist because your mother needed such a treatment. The medicine is not harmful for her. Work with your psychiatrist for proper care and cure. No self judgement. Take care.

Hello Chandrashekhar ji... The tablets he is taking are mostly to numb down the brain activity and they have no curative effect on the disease... If you want to cure the problem then take Homoeopathic treatment... It gives permanent result.. With that it improves general energy and feeling of well being...
