Dear lybrate user you have taken a commendable stood by quitting smoking. Don't ever touch cigarettes again. For the head pain try to keep yourself hydrated by taking a lot of fluids. You can also take any painkiller as and when required for the time being but if this headache tendency continues for more than 3 weeks then you need further help.

Why the problem of heart attack raise in human?

MD - Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
Why the problem of heart attack raise in human?
Dear , heart attack is medically termed as myocardial infarction which is attributed due to clogging of blood vessels which supply oxygenated blood to the heart. Due to change in life style we have started developing hyperlipidemias (cholesterol or fat in blood) when attributed with stress and blood pressure these create blocks in the heart vessels. Gradually the blood supply to the affected portion stops causing heart attack. The key is to eat and live healthy.

Pain in the chest especially on walking or excercise could suggest insufficient blood supply to your heart because of partial blockage. I would recommend you to consult a cardiologist or physician for the necessary tests.

Hi I am 44 years male undergone Angioplasty in sept. 2015.
I am a diabetic patient with blood pressure.
Dear Please see healthsolutions. International There are ayurvedic medicines that will help reduce the burden of blockage formation and improve heart health. These medicines are clinically studied to reverse blockage formation and lad to improvement in cardiac function. Doing angioplasty does not rule out or reduce the cause of deposition in blood vessels or the cause of the weakness. Regards.

Hi. At night, when you are about to sleep, you tend to appreciate the sounds of your heart beats and also can feel the pulsations in your chest. This is because the surroundings are so quite and you are calm and free. Sometimes, due to this sensations, people think wether they are having some heart problem! so if this is your case, then do not worry. Otherwise having fast heart rate could be due to tensions, stress etc. As you said, you have sleep problem also. Then, solve the overall stressors of your life and you should be fine. Take care.

What is the best way to control sugar and high blood pressure? Will liver get affected by these health issues?
All organs including liver get affected. But its not over days or months. It takes years. Best way to protect your organs is to keep your sugar and bp in check by combination of diet, exercise and medication.

You have told us the cause and treatment- you get better after drinking warm water-means acid collected in stomach gets washed away. Drink warm fluids like clear soups, warm water with honey and lemon, green tea or mild tea/coffee, warm water with meals. Make it a habit to drink warm water only but do take cold puddings/beverages once in a while. Good to know about your normal reports.

She have blood pressure. How to prevent b. P? How to give health education to him?

She have blood pressure. How to prevent b. P? How to give health education to him?
1. Exercise regularly-------------------------- Regular physical activity — at least 30 minutes most days of the week — can lower your blood pressure by 4 to 9 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). It's important to be consistent because if you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again.-------------------- If you have slightly high blood pressure (prehypertension), exercise can help you avoid developing full-blown hypertension. If you already have hypertension, regular physical activity can bring your blood pressure down to safer levels.--------------------------------- The best types of exercise for lowering blood pressure include walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or dancing. Strength training also can help reduce blood pressure. Talk to your doctor about developing an exercise program.---------------------- 2. Eat a healthy diet--------------------------- Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg. It isn't easy to change your eating habits, but with these tips, you can adopt a healthy diet:------------------ •Keep a food diary. Writing down what you eat, even for just a week, can shed surprising light on your true eating habits. Monitor what you eat, how much, when and why.--------------- •Consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. Talk to your doctor about the potassium level that's best for you.-------------------- •Be a smart shopper. Read food labels when you shop and stick to your healthy-eating plan when you're dining out, too.-------------- 4. Reduce sodium in your diet------------------------ Even a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can reduce blood pressure by 2 to 8 mm Hg.-------------------- The effect of sodium intake on blood pressure varies among groups of people. In general, limit sodium to less than 2, 300 milligrams (mg) a day or less. However, a lower sodium intake — 1, 500 mg a day or less — is appropriate for people with greater salt sensitivity, including: Anyone age 51 or older Anyone diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease------------------------ To decrease sodium in your diet, consider these tips:------------------ •Read food labels. If possible, choose low-sodium alternatives of the foods and beverages you normally buy.------------------- •Eat fewer processed foods. Only a small amount of sodium occurs naturally in foods. Most sodium is added during processing.-------- •Don't add salt. Just 1 level teaspoon of salt has 2, 300 mg of sodium. Use herbs or spices to add flavor to your food.---------------- •Ease into it. If you don't feel you can drastically reduce the sodium in your diet suddenly, cut back gradually. Your palate will adjust over time.----

Mr. Lybrate-user, the blood sugar levels mentioned by you look quite ok. It also important to look at hba1c%, if that is<7%, then one can say diabetes is in good control. If you maintai sugar levels at the present level then it will in preventing or postponing the long term complications of diabetes. You have also not mentioned about the drugs being taken and their dosage. As regards the hypertension, it is not in control, which is clear with the readings which you have mentioned. To give any suggestion I need to know your current treatment with dosage. Another important aspect is that you have a bmi of 27.57 kg/m2, which means over weight, it also is a major contributor for high bp and sugar levels. If you are looking for any specific guidance, it will be better if you come with details like present fasting and pp levels, hba1c%, bp readings and drugs with dosage and diet and exercise pattern. Then I will be able to guide.
