Good to know that your periods are regular as this is the first proof that there is balance between male and female hormones in your body, testosterone is a male hormone present in small amounts in all women, similarly some feminine hormones are present in males but balance is maintained by nature. You must have got tested to know that you have 4 times the normal testosterone. Ultrasound is normal. My suggestion is get tested just after period, the time every hormone is minimal, same way it is highest, just before periods. Your worry is excessive hair on face and body. You need cosmetic treatment, both home remedies and removal of hair by waxing etc. Drink more water and exercise, take less fats. Do not take estrogens to counter testosterones because once the balance is spoiled by giving artificial hormones, it becomes difficult to bring back the balance. You can take evecare syrup by himalaya, just 2 spoons per day.

All about Hypertension

DNB (Medicine), MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
All about Hypertension

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure (HBP) is a long-term or chronic health condition where the pressure of the flow of blood is always high in the arteries. High blood pressure can develop over many years and affects everyone at some point in life but if not treated for a very long time, it can escalate the risks of a number of cardiovascular problems and chronic kidney disorders.

Types

1. Primary Hypertension - High blood pressure caused by genetic, prenatal or other natural causes like aging (people over 60 develop HBP) is known as primary hypertension.

2. Secondary Hypertension - Secondary hypertension is that which is caused due to specific conditions, like kidney disorders, lung disorders etc.

Causes

Blood pressure depends on the amount of blood pumped by the heart and the radius of the blood vessels. The delicate balance can get disturbed due to a number of factors.

Primary hypertension may be caused by genetic factors. There are 35 identified genetic loci related to blood pressure. Mutations in these can cause chronic HBP. Other factors like maternal smoking, deficiency of vitamin D, deficiency of calcium, insufficient breast milk consumption also increase the risk of HBP.

Secondary hypertension is caused by a variety of conditions like hypothyroidism, hypothyroidism, nephritis, asthma, sleep apnea, depression, pregnancy etc. Overconsumption of caffeine, alcohol, sodium and illegal drugs may also be responsible for high blood pressure.

Symptoms

Hypertension may not show any warning symptoms for several years while it continues to develop. A few tell-tale signs are frequent throbbing headaches, shortness of breath, nosebleeds, excessive sweating but these only occur when there is an extremely serious medical complication.

Treatment and Prevention

Hypertension is a common condition, especially after the age of 40. Medication may help control severely high blood pressure to an extent but certain lifestyle changes go a long way in both preventing and treating the disorder. Some of them are:

1. Taking regular blood pressure readings after the age of 25. A normal blood pressure is not more than 120/80 mm Hg.
2. Obesity causes hypertension. A normal Body Mass Index of 30kg/sq. m. is to be maintained.
3. The daily diet should include at least 4 to 6 portions of fruits and vegetables.
4. Salt intake is to be limited.
5. Drinking and smoking are to be minimized.
6. Stress and burnout should be avoided.

It's normal for heart rate to go up during exercise. As you continue your work outs regularly, your heart rate will settle down to lower levels during work out. So just chill and carry on with your work outs. All the best.

Hello lybrate-user, the blood pressure of 160 / 90 is in the hypertensive range and by all means it should be preferably be brought under the range of 120 -140 and 80 -85. Considering he is young and the pressure range is not very high, it can be do so by holistic ways and not starting medication. 1)He has to cut salt in his diet. Not more than 3 -4 gms per day. Earing healthy with more of fruits and vegetables in diet would be helpful 2) At least 30 mins of aerobic exercise everyday 3) Quit smoking, of he drinks - to drink in moderation and if overweight try to loose weight to achive ideal BMI under 23. At the same time some tests to rule out secondary cause of hypertension should be considered and effects of hypertension on eyes, kidney and heart should be evaluated. Keep a strict tab on above if still the pressure reading are high consider started medication atleast for time being, than as things improve can taper it off showily. Regards

I have pain below the neck at the centre of the chest and I have smoking habit I have pain at wake up early morning.
Having a pain in your chest can be scary. It does not always mean that you are having a heart attack. There can be many other causes, including Other heart problems, such as angina Panic attacks Digestive problems, such as heartburn or esophagus disorders Sore muscles Lung diseases, such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or pulmonary embolism Costochondritis - an inflammation of joints in your chest Some of these problems can be serious. Get immediate medical care if you have chest pain that does not go away, crushing pain or pressure in the chest, or chest pain along with nausea, sweating, dizziness or shortness of breath. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain. To rule out cardiac issues. Get a ECG and 2D echocardiography done. If they are normal then get a TMT done And stop smoking it increases your risk of getting a heart attack.

Sometimes (once or twice) in a month I feel a pain in my left side of chest. It feels like a pinch of needle and remains only for 2-3 seconds. I take deep breaths whenever it happens. Beat my chest with my fist and it goes away. But I think it is related to my heart and it is like a clotting .I don't want to take the risk. Kindly let me know what is the reason of this.

Dear , your hba1c is quite good, but your hdl is low, s. Cholesterol is little high, for this try to include lot of omega 3 fatty rich foods like flaxseed, melon seeds, fish, wall nuts. Also follow a high fibre, and good protein diet with multi grains instead of processed foods.

Most probably the surgery must have been by key hole method giving minimum cuts and trauma. Your doctor has suggested you to eat everything except fats. Trust him. Bad fats are not good for anyone, not even a 10 years old kid. After gall bladder surgery the appetite becomes better as there is no fear of pain after eating. Eat whatever you like but do reduce your weight the healthy way by eating right and exercising according to your constitution and physique. Walking is best exercise which is meditative too. Drink warm liquids more often as gall bladder juice-bile has no reservoir now as gall bladder is removed and bile is flowing constantly in the food pipe. Take warm water with honey, green tea, clear soups, plain warm water more often to wash away the acid and bile juice in stomach. Hope you know about bad fats. Let me repeat-street food and trans fats present in packed foods. But do take good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/butter + katori of assorted nuts everyday. Seasonal vegetables and fruits-lots drink a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice + spoon of honey on empty stomach in morning-it does burn fats and extra sugars. Say no to empty calories like sugar and sweets, fizzy cold drinks, packed juices. Eat fresh fruits. If worried about heart get basic tests done like ecg, echo, stress test, blood test for sugar & total lipids. Get back here with reports and progress of weight loss. Only 10 kgs need to be shed @ 5 kg /month.
