I have been diagnosed with very high cholesterol. What should I do?
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 .

Hello, heart attack is stopping of hearts own blood supply by blockages of hearts own blood vessels. A person with bp, diabetes and mostly smokers get it. Plus eating fat-oil etc and heredity can cause heart attack.

I am 60 year old male, and recently suffered from a minor heart attack, and also suffer from diabetes. So I was prescribed with Glimestar PM2, but I came to know that it contains pioglitazone (15 mg) which is not good for heart patients. So is it safe for me to continue with this medicine?

First thing is you are not suffering from heart or lung problem. So don't worry. The things you are doing to relieve your pain and you get relief from your pain suggests that it is simple diversion of mind from the pain. The so called pain is from anxiety and worry. Therefore relax and find out the cause of stress that is giving rise to your 'chest pain'.

Screening for Prehypertension

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Guidelines for vary from time to time, but generally accepted classification of hypertension (jnc7) is

Average of two or more properly measured readings at each of two or more visits after an initial screen:

Normal lesser than 120 mm hg sbp and dbp lesser than 90 mm hg

Prehypertension 120 -139 mm hg sbp or dbp 80 to 89 mm hg

Stage 1 htn 140 -159 mm hg sbp or dbp 90 to 99 mm hg

Stage 2 htn greter than/= 160 mm of hg sbp or dbp greter than/= 100 mm hg.

Prevalence of prehypertension among adults in united states is approximately 37 percent.

Study done by yadhav s et al showed prevalence of prehypetension was 32.3 percent in india with highest 36% among 30-39 yrs age group, indicates that awareness is necessary for regular blood pressure check up.

People diagnosed with hypertension represents 'tip of an iceberg'.

Many patients get to know about their raised blood pressures at the time of diagnosis, heart attack, stroke or kidney disease (end organ failures) which would have been preventable if treated at an early stage.

Why hypertension should be diagnosed and treated?

Hypertension currently causes 2/3rd s of all strokes and half of all cases of ischemic heart disease.

Reduction in high blood pressure leads to large reduction in stroke, heart failure, renal failure, aortic dissection, coronary events and death.

Prehypertension: it is an entity where sbp greater than 120 -139 mm hg or dbp 80-89 mm hg.

Multiple epidemiological studies demonstrated increased cardiovascular risk in patients with prehypertension. People with prehypertension have increased risk of progression to sustained hypertension, the prevalence of hypertension increases from approximately 10 percent at age of 30 yrs to as high as 90 percent after age of 65 yrs.

Framinham hypertension risk prediction score, may help identification of prehypertensive patients who are at gretest risk for pregression to hypertension. Risk calculator includes variables like age, sex, family history of hypertension, body mass index and smoking. Most important predictors of these were higher baseline blood pressure and older age.

Screening for hypertension: optimal interval for screening is not known.

2007 uspstf (united states preventive services task force) guidelines recommend

Screening every two years for persons with sbp lesser than 120 mm hg and dbp lesser than 80 mm hg

Yearly for persons with sbp 120-139 mm hg or a dbp 80 -89 mm hg

How to manage prehypertension:

Trophy stydy (trial of preventing hypertension) results showed that there is no role for pharmacotherapy in prehypertension except in special conditions like diabetes, chronic kidney disease etc.

Treatment: as per jnc 7 reccomendations patients with prehypertension who do not have diabetes, chronic kidney disease, end organ damage, or clinical evidence of cardiovascular disease are generally treated with non pharmacological therapies.

Major non pharmacological therapies that aid to decrease blood pressure are: 

Weight reduction: maintain normal body weight (bmi 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m2) this can reduce by 5 to 20 mm hg per 10kg weight loss.

Adopt dash eating plan: (dash- dietary approach to stop hypertension) consists of fruits, vegetables, legumes, low-fat dairy products with reduced saturated and total fat. This can reduce bp by 8 to 14 mm hg.

Dietary sodium restriction: reduce dietary sodium intake to no more than 100meq/day (2.4 gm sodium or 6 gm of sodium chloride). This can reduce bp by 2 to 8 mm hg.

Physical activity: engage in a regular aerobic physical activity such as brisk walking (at least 30 min per day, most days of the week). This can reduce bp by 4 to 9 mm hg.

Moderation of alcohol: limit consumption of alcohol to no more than 2 drinks per day in most men and no more than 1 drink in women and lighter weight persons. This can reduce bp by 2 to 4 mm hg.

Hello there, certainly you are a established case of high bp. As your bp is high with medicine. You need active medical treatment. Plan for prevention of complications of high bp in future. 1) find out root causes of high bp. 2) avoid oily, fried, alcohol & high calorie food. 3) avoid excessive eating. 5) reduce 25% quantity of carbohydrate s (chapatti, rice, bhakari, idli) in each meal. 6) maintain your bmi strictly between 23 to 25.7) change your edible oil every month (mustard oil, groundnut oil, kardai, sunflower oil, rice bran oil, coconut oil etc) 8) reduce you belly size & belly fat (visceral fat) 9) have more vegetables & dal in each meal (each 1 bowl)

Recently there has been a sharp rise in young strokes and young heart attacks. The major causes behind these incidents are undiagnosed hypertension and hypercholestrolemia. Office workers especially it professionals have a sedentary lifestyle and are prone to such problems. What you can do?

Aside from good healthy habits like good diet and exercise, regularly undergo check ups. Check your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and thyroid function at least twice a year. If diagnosed early these disorders can be well controlled so that adverse events like a young heart attack or stroke can be prevented.

Any HDL level above more than 60 mg/dL (1.56 mmol/L) is considered high. A high HDL level is considered very healthy, since it has a protective role in guarding against heart disease. An acceptable HDL range is between 40- 60 mg/dL (1.04–1.56 mmol/L). An undesirable level of HDL is any level below 40 mg/dL (1.04 mmol/L). In this case, low HDL levels may help to contribute to heart disease. Very Low Density Lipoproteins Very low density lipoproteins, or VLDL, are lipoproteins that carry cholesterol from the liver to organs and tissues in the body. They are formed by a combination of cholesterol and triglycerides. VLDLs are heavier than low density lipoproteins, and are also associated with atherosclerosis and heart disease. This number is obtained by dividing your triglyceride levels by 5.
