Whether should I start BP drugs or not? In Oct-2016 my BP was 136/90. In August 2017 it was 150/100 along with 3 month Average blood sugar of 106. So doctor advised me to take drugs. But after reading so much articles and opinions of doctors worldwide I decided not to take drugs and changed my lifestyle completely with the following activities. 1- Regular morning walk started from 15 minutes/day and now it is average 45 minutes per day. 2- Completely avoided all fast foods, oily foods, all sweets & snacks made from maida, ultra low use of salt, salty foods, dairy products and increased intake of fruits like BEET ROOT, CARROT, APPLE etc. I started eating 1 Teaspoon of flaxseed and 5 Almonds everyday. 2- After 3 months in October-2017 my BP started improving and the readings recorded were from 150/100, 160/100 to 140/100 then 135/100, 130/90 and in November it was 120/90. Average blood sugar reading was 96. Body weight decreased from 76 to 74 kg. My height is 5 ft 7 inch. I have stopped taking almonds since last 2 months due to improved/normal health condition. In December-2017 (Last week) when I checked my BP with a new doctor he recorded my BP as 156/90 and advised me to take drugs. About me. I am 53 year male without any family history of BP, Diabetes, cancer or any other previous serious ailments. Of course I have some official & family stress which is as usual and manageable I think. Whether should I start BP drugs or not? What further corrective lifestyle should I adopt?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. Please understand ideally BP should be in the range of 120 to 130 mm Hg /70 to 80 mmHg, to be called as normal. If one has readings like 131 to 140 / 81 to 90 mm Hg, then its considered as pre-hypertension. Any reading above 140 systolic or 91 mm Hg diastolic individually or both together is considered as hypertension. Then treatment is advised. Initially one may try the modified lifestyle for 3 months, if BP reverts to normal level, then it is good. If not then starting treatment is a must. Thanks.

How To Prevent A Heart Attack?

How To Prevent A Heart Attack?

The heart pumps blood to various body parts so they function smoothly. When this blood flow is impaired, then the other organs also cannot function to their full capacity. A heart attack is when there is sudden, abrupt, complete blockage of this blood flow from the heart.

Over the past few decades, a heart attack is one of the major causes of death. With changing lifestyles, it is spreading its presence, and people in younger age groups are seen to have heart attacks. There are various risk factors which put one at a higher risk, though. Identifying these and working on them is a great way to reduce the chances of developing a heart attack. Read on to know the most effective eight ways in which you can prolong the onset of heart disease as well as improve the overall quality of life.

  1. Diet: You are what you eat. It is as simple as that. Eating a diet that is heart healthy not only helps in preventing heart attacks but also improves overall health. Ensure the diet has variety, is rich in omega fatty acids, less of saturated fats, rich in fiber with fruits and vegetables, and whole grains.
  2. Move it: The sedentary lifestyle added with the poor dietary habits are the major culprits for increased incidence of heart attacks. Exercise in any form – walking, jogging, running, cycling, gymming – good for the heart. It not only keeps you in good shape but also keeps your heart healthy and active. The risk of heart attacks is greatly reduced.
  3. Stress: This is believed to be a major reason for increased incidence of heart attacks. Find a way to manage stress that works for you – meditation, music, travel, exercise, etc.
  4. Weight: Weight management is extremely important for a healthy heart and overall health. The difference between those who watch weight and others is very obvious if you just look at people. As soon as you are above your limits, work on reducing it.
  5. Smoking: The hazards of smoking are multiple, and upping the chances of heart disease is one of them. Reducing or quitting smoking can change your quality of life in multiple ways, and reducing the incidence of heart attacks is just one of them.
  6. Readings: In addition to weight, ensure your blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels are maintained well. These are vital readings and are closely connected. They not just help in preventing heart attacks but in multiple other chronic conditions including diabetes and cancer.
  7. Stay happy: With all these, stay happy, have a good social circle. This helps improve health quotient to a large extent.

So, while a heart attack is beginning to spread its wings, there are definitely ways to control it.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

I am having serum cholesterol 259 & LDL 187. I was prescribed tonact 10 mg for two months by my doctor. Now along with the above medication, I am regularly going for morning walk for 1 hour and doing stretching work for 15-30 minutes. For time being I have stopped taking red meat and other fat diets on doctors advice. My question is, if I continue stretch work and do walking regularly seven days a week and start taking red meat in small quantity thrice a week, will my cholesterol level come down or increases?

Please avoid red meat, because it has high fat content and eating it will lead to increase in cholesterol production in your body. Your LDL was pretty high to begin with so you should be extra cautious. You can have lean meat like fish, chicken breast, egg white etc. The choice for you is between health or taste.

high 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. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Excessive sleepiness can have serious consequences. You could doze off while waiting at a red light, for example. And not getting good sleep has been associated with high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and weight gain. Routinely taking more than 30 minutes to fall asleep Regularly waking up many times and having trouble falling asleep again Frequent sleepiness during the day, frequent naps, or falling asleep unintentionally or at inappropriate times during the day Loud snoring, gasping, snorting, choking sounds or stopping breathing for short periods during sleep--problems that are usually reported by your spouse or partner Creeping, tingling or crawling feelings in your legs or arms, especially as you're falling asleep Legs or arms jerk often during sleep, often reported by your spouse or partner Waking up with headaches

Yes it is better to stop that drug before surgery. No need to stop the drug if the surgery is done under topical anaesthesia and clear corneal incision for Phacoemulsification.

You have not mentioned the complete report of entire cholesterol profile, Please share that so that we can understand if you will require just lifestyle changes or a combination of medicine & lifestyle changes. For cholesterol derangement, the first line of management is diet change, introduction of daily exercise in your routine and quiting alcohol. For diet please take a detailed diet consult with a dietitan for low fat diet, eat fruits and vegetables and avoid fried, junk food or high sugary food like sweets and desserts. Exercise daily for 40 mins like brisk walking, yoga or jogging etc. Quit smoking and drinking in case you do. And if you are overweight try to loose weight using diet and exercise precaustions. After 6 weeks of the precautions please repeat your tests, if still high, consult a doctor for starting cholesterol lowering medicines.
