Low Blood Pressure: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

When a person suffers from chronic blood pressure syndrome it is not considered a serious matter. Medical trouble can arise when there is a sudden drop in the blood pressure levels. When this happens the brain is unable to receive adequate supply of blood. This can cause the person suffering from the low pressure attack to feel lightheaded or dizzy. This sudden drop occurs generally in people who have been sitting or lying in a particular position for long and then suddenly stand up. This sudden drop in blood pressure levels is known as orthostatic hypotension or sometimes as postural hypotension.

There is a third kind of low blood pressure or hypotension when someone stands for a long time which is called neurally mediated hypotension. If it causes someone to faint it is known as vasovagal syncope. When the cardiovascular system or nervous system fails to respond correctly to certain unexpected changes encountered by the body it is known as postural hypotension. This failure on the part of the cardiovascular or nervous system to adapt to the sudden changes is signalled by the body by transmitting certain messages to the heart which makes it beat more rapidly and also to the blood vessels making it narrower.

The condition of either low or high blood pressure is more prevalent in older people because the supply of blood flow to the brain and heart muscle is lowered with age. The symptoms of low blood pressure include feeling lightheaded or dizzy or unsteady, blurring of vision, body weakness, tiredness, nausea, clammy and pale skin and tendency to pass out. Pregnancy, dehydration, blood loss, heart disorders, septicaemia or any other serious infection, anaphylaxis or a significant insufficient of nutrients in your daily diet can be some of the reasons for the sudden drop on your blood pressure levels.

How is the treatment done?

Low blood pressure in itself is not a serious condition. Often it can be a symptom of another health problem. The underlying conditions differ from person to person. Therefore, it is necessary for the doctor to identify the real cause of your blood pressure problem. First, fix an appointment with your doctor; notify him/her about your medical history, your age, the symptoms you are currently experiencing, and the reasons for the occurrence of the blood pressure drop. The doctor will conduct a thorough physical examination of the concerned patient. Then she or he will make the patient undergo a series of tests where the patient will be asked to stand up suddenly after lying down for some time. During this time, the doctor will take the pulse rate and will check the blood pressure levels.

If the doctor feels necessary then she or he may perform an ECG or an electrocardiogram in order to check the pulse rate and also an echocardiogram/ultrasound test in order to see the condition of the heart and take pictures of it for later reference. She or he might also take blood test samples from the patient in order to check for anemia or any issues with your blood sugar level.

In order to check for irregular heart rate the doctor may ask the patient to get an ECG or a Holter monitor done. An exercise test or stress test may also be advised. In certain cases, a ‘tilt table’ test is performed for a patient experiencing postural hypotension in order to assess the response of the body to unexpected changes in movements or position.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

A person who is experiencing shock or symptoms of low blood pressure like feeling lightheaded or dizzy on an off and on basis. Although chronic low blood pressure might not be a serious health issue in itself, it can be a symptom of a much severe underlying medical condition.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

All those people who are experiencing the symptoms of low blood pressure mentioned above do not need to go visit a doctor.

Are there any side effects?

The side effects of taking flodrocortisone include heart failure, muscle weakness, expansion of the heart, easy bruising, headaches, light-headedness and sudden increase in blood glucose levels.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

The doctor may advise you to increase the amount of salt in your diet because sodium increases pressure drastically. Also, increase the quantity of your fluid intake daily in order to prevent dehydration by drinking lots of water.

You may also be advised to wear stockings that put on compression on your legs by pooling the blood. This can help to reduce inflammation and pain. You may also be prescribed certain medications such as fludrocortisone and midodrine/orvaten help to treat the problem of hypotension or low blood pressure.

How long does it take to recover?

With proper rest, medication and water (for drinking, in case the low blood pressure occurred as a result of dehydration) you can recover within a few hours.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

In India one strip of 2.5 mg of Midodrine costs about 2,3000 Rupees, an ECG test costs about 250 Rupees in India, and an ultrasound test can cost you about Rs. 1000- 4000 in India.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

The results of the treatment depends on well you adhere to the post-treatment guidelines. If you can look after your daily diet and also identity the reasons behind your sudden blood pressure levels you can prevent the sudden attacks from occurring on getting up after lying for some time.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Alternatives for low blood pressure problems include certain home remedies such as increasing the daily water consumption level and cutting down on alcohol which will help to tackle the dehydration levels, having a balance diet which incorporates nutritional items such as fruits, veggies, whole grains and protein such as chicken and fish. Other remedies include gently moving from one place to another instead of getting up suddenly or moving too fast. Avoid sitting with your legs crossed and try to consume small portion of really low-carb foods. Also, keep eating small portions of food throughout the day to prevent the blood pressure levels from dropping suddenly.

Shortness in Breath - Can Your Heart Be In Danger?

Shortness in Breath - Can Your Heart Be In Danger?

There are different types of heart problems like coronary artery disease, congenital heart failure and cardiomyopathy, but their warning signs are the same i.e. shortness of breath. This is the reason why shortness of breath should never be taken lightly and should always be investigated for heart diseases.

Why does shortness of breath happen?
You may not be able to get in enough air while experiencing shortness of breath. Known medically as dyspnea, shortness of breath is often described as an intense tightening in the chest and a feeling of suffocation. This is one of the most frightening conditions experienced by a patient. You can experience dyspnea without any serious medical problems in these conditions

  1. After strenuous exercise
  2. In extreme temperatures
  3. Due to obesity and
  4. In high altitudes

But if you are not in any of these conditions, then shortness of breath is a sign of a serious medical problem usually involving your heart or lungs. These two vital organs transport oxygen to the rest of your body and remove carbon dioxide; hence problems with either of these organs can affect your breathing. Shortness of breath that comes on suddenly called acute, can be due to other causes too like:

  1. Asthma
  2. Excess fluid around the heart
  3. Low BP
  4. Heart failure
  5. Blood clot in an artery in the lung
  6. Collapsed lung
  7. Pneumonia

If you have had shortness of breath that has lasted for weeks, then we call it chronic and its causes can be various diseases of the heart apart from asthma and COPD. There is no doubt that your heart may be in trouble, if you have chronic shortness of breath. You may be suffering from these heart conditions:

  1. Cardiomyopathy or problems with the heart muscle cause symptoms like shortness of breath after physical exertion as well as fatigue, and swelling of legs and abdomen. Patients suffering from cardiomyopathy are at risk of sudden death due to cardiac arrest.
  2. Heart arrhythmias is also called irregular heartbeat, and can cause slow or fast heartbeats. These also have symptoms like shortness of breath. Arrhythmias can cause strokes, heart failure and cardiac arrest.
  3. Heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently to meet the needs of the body. This is a potentially fatal condition. One of the most common symptom is shortness of breath with exercise and while lying down. Fatigue is another common symptom.
  4. Pericarditis or swelling of membranes around the heart is also characterised by shortness of breath.

Treatment of breathlessness can start after you are referred to a heart specialist for further tests to confirm the likely cause.

Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) - Know Causes And Treatment Of It!

Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) - Know Causes And Treatment Of It!

If you are experiencing pain in the muscles and joints, an enhanced craving for salt, symptoms of low glucose in the blood or low blood pressure, you could be suffering from adrenal insufficiency (AI). The outer layer or cortex of our adrenal gland produces three forms of steroid hormones. In adrenal insufficiency, the cortex fails to produce enough steroid hormones. Some people do not know that they have been affected with adrenal insufficiency until they experience a sudden worsening of symptoms. This is called an adrenal crisis.

Causes

The different types of adrenal insufficiencies occur because of different reasons. Primary AI is commonly caused by autoimmune diseases in which our body’s defence system destroys the body’s tissues. Bleeding in glands, genetic diseases and infections are other likely causes.

Secondary AI occurs because of problems with the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland produces a hormone named adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) because of which the adrenal glands produce cortisol. In the case of secondary AI, the pituitary glands stop sending ACTH to the adrenal glands, and cortisol is hence not produced. This may occur by taking certain prescribed medicines.

Diagnosis

A patients’s medical symptoms and medical history are observed. The blood levels of cortisol, sodium, potassium and glucose are checked for the detection of AI. The adrenal glands and the pituitary gland are observed by imaging tests. X-rays, ultrasound, and CT and MRI scans may be required.

Treatment

The treatment of adrenal insufficiency aims at ensuring proper levels of hormones in the body. You may require regular replacement of hormones for life. You have to take glucocorticoids for replacing the cortisol which your body does not provide anymore. Mineralocorticoids should be taken when the body does not produce aldosterone. Extra glucocorticoids may be required during times of intense stress such as a surgery or serious health conditions.

  1. Glucocorticoid helps the body in coping with stress, injury and illness. It helps in the regulation of blood glucose levels and blood pressure levels. It performs the function of cortisol.
  2. Mineralocorticoid helps in maintaining a proper balance of water and salt in our body. This is actually carried out by aldosterone.
  3. Adrenal androgens, which are weak male sex hormones, present in both men and women, help in the regulation of pubic and armpit hair growth in women.

If you experience any symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, it is recommended that you visit a doctor immediately. Early diagnosis will enable early treatment, which is beneficial for you.

Homeopathic medicines start by providing “symptomatic” relief. It eases vertigo, nausea, fatigue and provides relief so that the patient can carry on with daily activities without hindrance. The next step is to normalise the blood circulation in the body, which also includes an improvement in the pulse rate and heart functions. This is done to maintain the normal blood pressure range. The third step involves treating the cause of low blood pressure. This includes a detailed study and analysis of the medical history of the patient. There are different causes of low blood pressure and different age groups are affected. Therefore, medicines are prescribed accordingly.

  3. Carbo veg and China are highly potent medicines in case of an abnormal fall in blood pressure caused by severe diarrhoea and dehydration. The body has marked signs of exhaustion and the pulse is so weak that it is often imperceptible.

लो ब्लड प्रेशर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Low Blood Pressure!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

लो ब्लड प्रेशर के लक्षण - Symptoms Of Low Blood Pressure!

लो ब्लड प्रेशर या निम्न रक्तचाप को हाइपोटेंशन भी कहा जाता है. यह तब होता है जब रक्तचाप सामान्य से काफी कम हो जाता है. इसका अर्थ है कि हृदय, मस्तिष्क और शरीर के अन्य भागों में पर्याप्त रक्त नहीं पहुंच पाता. आदर्श रूप से रक्तचाप, 120/80 (सिस्टोलिक/डायस्टोलिक) से कम होना चाहिए. सिस्टोलिक के लिए 90 मिलीमीटर एचजी से कम और डायस्टोलिक के लिए 60 मिलीमीटर एचजी से कम को लो बीपी माना जाता है. बिना किसी लक्षण या संकेत के लो बीपी अस्वस्थ नहीं होता है. चक्कर आना और बेहोशी दोनों लो बीपी के मुख्य लक्षण हैं. ये लक्षण सबसे आम हैं जब व्यक्ति लेटने या बैठने के बाद खड़ा होता है. लो बीपी के सामान्य कारण हैं रक्त की मात्रा में कमी, हृदय रोग और दवाएं. दोनों लो और हाई बीपी का जोखिम आमतौर पर उम्र बढ़ने के कारण बढ़ता है. लो बीपी का उपचार इसके होने के कारण पर निर्भर करता है. आइए लो ब्लड प्रेशर के लक्षणों को जानें.

खून की कमी

कई बार शरीर में रक्त की कमी, निम्न रक्तचाप का कारण बनती है.किसी बड़ी चोट या अंदरूनी रक्तस्राव के कारण शरीर में अचानक खून की कमी हो जाती है, जिससे रक्तचाप निम्न हो जाता है.

कमजोरी व पोषण की कमी

पोषण की कमी और कमजोरी निम्न रक्तचाप का एक बढ़ा कारण है. जरूरी पोषक तत्वों की कमी होने पर शरीर पर्याप्त मात्रा में लाल रक्त कोशिकाएं नहीं बना पाती जिससे रक्तचाप निम्न हो जाता है.

हृदय रोग

हृदय से जुड़ी किसी भी प्रकार की समस्या होने पर रक्तचाप निम्न हो सकता है. इसलिए इस दौरान आपको विशेष सावधानी बरतने की जरूरत है.
 

पानी की कमी

शरीर में पानी की कमी से आप कई बार कमजोरी महसूस करते हैं. पानी की कमी से सिर्फ लो ब्लडप्रेशर ही नहीं, स्वास्थ्य से जुड़ी अन्य समस्याएं भी होती हैं जिसमें बुखार, उल्टी, डायरिया आदि शामिल हैं.

गर्भावस्था

महिलाओं में गर्भावस्था के समय लो ब्लडप्रेशर की समस्या हो सकती है क्योंकि इस समय सर्कुलेटरी सिस्टम तेजी से बढ़ता है और

ब्लडप्रेशर कम हो जाता है.

अगर आपको स्वास्थ्य से जुड़ी कुछ अन्य समस्याएं जैसे डायबिटीज, थायरॉयड, एडिसंस डिसीज आदि हैं, तो आप निम्न रक्तचाप के मरीज हो सकते हैं. इसके अलावा किसी प्रकार का टेंशन, सदमा लगने, डर जाने, इंफेक्शन आदि होने पर भी यह समस्या हो सकती है.

अन्य स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं

अगर आप किसी स्वास्थ्य समस्या से पीड़ित हैं और उसवके लिए लगातार दवाईयों का सेवन कर रहे हैं, तब भी यह निम्न रक्तचाप का कारण बन सकता है.

अन्य लक्षण

सामान्य तौर पर जब आप अचानक बेहद कमजोरी महसूस करें या चक्कर आने जैसे लक्षण निम्न रक्तचाप के हो सकते हैं. लेकिन प्रमुख रूप से थकान, डिप्रेशन, जी मचलाना, प्यास लगना, धुंधला दिखाई देना, त्वचा में पीलापन, शरीर ठंडा पड़ जाना, आधी-अधूरी और तेज सांसें आना आदि निम्न रक्तचाप के प्रमुख लक्षण हैं.

You seem to be on 4 medicines. Cholesterol medicine, 2 blood thinners and one BP medicine. You should continue olmisartan, but probably stop others. Other medicines are required after a heart attack. Taking medicines without requirement may be risky. For good health you must eat well, not take multiple medicines. Talk to people who are healthy at ninety about diet, don't trust other ways of staying healthy.

Low Sexual Desire In Women
Hello Friends!

Welcome once again! I'm Dr. Hitesh Shah, a sexologist from Mumbai. So, our today's topic is low sexual desire in women. Well, this is a very common problem amongst our Indian population specially. The reasons are many. If we try to understand, why does a woman feel low desire or less interest in sex, we need to evaluate it at various level. Of course, there are women who have constitutionally low sexual desire but are few. Most of them have either psychological factors or relationship factors or many of them also have medical or hormonal factors. So, let's try to understand them in detail. Now, we must rule out all possible medical factors. Whenever a woman, especially when they come after marriage, the couple is frustrated/depressed because the woman feels she's not able to respond to her husband. Husband tries to cope up, tries to cooperate.

He's very understanding, but at the end of the day he's a man, he's a human being. He has his own desire and passion, he doesn't get response from wife so he's also frustrated. Many years pass through for many couple. Sometimes they come when they have pressure to conceive babies, sex life is just forgotten. So, even for conceiving, they need sex and the wife just doesn't feel the desire to have sex. And all of these also leads to various marital issues, disharmony, fights, quarrels or extramarital affair by husband or depression in wife or husband. So, it's very important that this problem is quickly communicated between the couple and they come to the doctor for the right treatment. Once the diagnosis is made, treatment is possible. So the common medical factors are any chronic disorders or disease in the system, person tends to feel low desire. Common hormonal problem in women like PCOS, hyperthyroidism and low haemoglobin - anaemia which are very common apart from diabetes which also cause low desire along with some lubrication disorders. So these are very common medical factors, so first we evaluate whether there are any medical factors or not.

If not, we simultaneously try to understand in detail the psychological relationship aspect. As for psychological reasons are concerned, we understand the makeup of the woman, the personality, the upbringing, the attitude, and the cognitive factors of the woman about sex. There are women who feel sex is bad, sinful, is just for having baby and something what animals do so one shouldn't indulge in sex except for having a baby. There are women who have negative impact about sex because they heard somebody s experience of painful first night, or they have seen rape scenes in television or a movie or they have heard someone's experience which is very painful and they develop a kind of disinterest or aversion or they start camouflaging their own sexual desire. There are women who are very psychologically shy or reserve so they don't explore their own sexuality or they are also not free or they are too much controlled by their husband in the bed so their desire don't really come up and they also feel really ashamed that if they would feel free on the bed, then what would their husband think! So, these are all psychological complex or controls which a woman develops within herself.

It also can be her forced marriage, they don't want to marry the guy but are forced and they don't develop the sexual interest. There are few women who are probably having a lesbian orientation, the attraction for only same-sex so they don't indulge in sexual desires for the opposite sex. Then, there are relationship issues between husband and wife. They feel alone or left out, or not being loved by the their husband or not respected by their husband or issues within the joint family or in-laws. All these keep them indulged in stressed out situations. There are also working women who are working entire day, the kitchen, and they really feel fatigue after the entire day. There can be vitamin deficiency also, these can be due to lack of nutrition, so these all stresses are phases that every woman passes through at some stage of their life. And the stress leads to low desire in woman.

There are women who don't want to have baby so show less interest in sex. Also, they are women who want to conceive and there is more conceiving pressure than enjoying sex life. So, there are multiple reasons why women can have low sexual desires. There can be multiple factors as stated above. Any of these factors in given case, we can help the women out in experiencing the desire, we can help the couple out once, when diagnosed. Also, what is important is the sexual chemistry in the bed. What kind of foreplay they do, how husband is taking interest in woman, how he's boosting his self image as lots of woman lose their self image. They feel less appealing, less attractive, questioning whether their husband likes them or not or if, are attracted to someone else. These self esteem issues lead to low sexual desire. In short, we evaluate all these factors in every case and try to help the woman as an individual and both of them as the couple. So, problem can be sorted out and you both can get back to your privileges of happy marriage. Right? So all the best to you and in case of any queries or concern, you're welcome to meet us at Lybrate platform. I'm Dr. Hitesh Shah once again. See you again with some more educational videos.

Thank you!

Nasal Bleeding
Hello Everyone.

Myself Dr. Neetu Modgil. I am ENT consultant working in Noida.

Today I am going to talk about the most common problem with the patients i.e. nasal Bleeding. It is not that challenging for the ENT consultant as it a concern for the patient himself or herself. Nasal bleeding there are so many cause behind it. There are so many presentations for it. But my logo for the nasal bleeding which you have to remember from the beginning to the end of this health tip in this video is don t pain, nasal panic no ignore . Basically there is a condition where you do not panic and please do not ignore the problem. Don t think that this is the first and last episode now you don t have to visit the ENT consultant. There can be many concerns about nasal bleeding which would to discuss in this video. First of all nasal bleeding can present in many ways, it can present as a perfuse bleeding, I can present just 1 to2 drops in one or both the nostrils, or it can present as blood mixed with mucus or the flam when you blow the nose. So there are . It can present in children, adults, young, old age. Any age can be effected with the nasal bleeding so there are many causes behind but before we go into the details of the causes because the causes, difference of causes in the pediatric group and the old age group. First I would like to tell you if there is any bleeding if you are sitting some place or if you are somewhere else and your nose starts bleeding spontaneously, please do not panic. The most important thing what you have to do is that pinch your nose. See this is the airline design area, you have to pinch this side of the nose and bend forward, and do this procedure for 3 minutes for the count of three minute, and basically our bleeding time is 2 to 3 minutes. So this is the concern that the patient has to press the press the nose for around 3 minutes at maximum 5 minutes. This send the signal to your brain you have to that the nose blood vessels have to stop bleeding. So this accelerate the procedure to stop the bleeding. This is the most important thing. Secondly the patient think the most common notion among the patient is that high blood pressure is causing the bleeding or high temperature is causing the bleeding so this is what I want clear, basically nasal bleeding is not caused by the high blood pressure but blood pressure is caused by the nasal bleeding when patient reached the hospital in the time, when the time patient reached the hospital he is or she is in so much panic that it creates high pressure. That s the relation between nasal bleeding and high blood pressure. So don t connect your BP with your nasal bleeding, first thing. Second thing hot temperature is not responsible for the nasal bleeding. Basically if we say into our data, our medical data, the most common problem of nasal bleeding is in the dry weather. So as I have already come to the causes so let s discuss in detail about what are the causes of nasal bleeding. For the first, I would like to discuss about the young and adult nasal bleeding causes. The most important thing is the dry weather. When the dry weather is mostly in the autumn season. Autumn is that season of the year, where there is transition from the summer into winter season, September to November month basically. In this season there is no rain, there is less humidity. Even in the winter season if there is no rain in that season it has a less humidity. Even in the summer season if you see just before the June i.e. May and April, it is again dry weather. So this is the dry weather it does not depend if it is hot weather or cold weather. It is the dry weather which is responsible for our nasal bleeding. So usually 80% of the nasal bleeding occurs in the interior part of the nose. There are some blood vessels is the posterior part of the nose also which a patient cannot control so definitely if you are pinching the nose it is controlling the interior part of the nasal bleeding. So you have to be careful the most important cause of the nasal bleeding is dry weather. After the nasal bleeding just apply some lubricants like petroleum jelly any ghee or any ointment in the nose. It will lubricate they nose and prevent the recurring nasal bleeding. And later on please the second thing, most important thing is don t ignore your nasal bleeding. Visit you ENT specialist to rule out the many other causes of nasal bleeding. So for my take away message home for patient is neither panic nor ignore. Please nasal bleeding is not the situation to panic and do not ignore it, visit your ENT specialist to rule out anything serious for the nasal bleeding.

Thank you so much.
