Brief Answer: Start LifeStyle changes Detailed Answer: Hi friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic BLOOD PRESSURE – The range for the upper figure (Systolic) is 90 to 140 mm Hg. The range for the lower figure (Diastolic) is 60 to 90 mm Hg. 140 and 90 is high normal and needs frequent follow up. Need follow up / check again after 2 or 3 months BMI – Your BMI is above Normal (18.5–24.9) – You are Overweight (BMI of 25–29.9) You need to initiate Life Style Changes – You have to reduce the QUANTITY of your food and change the QUALITY too. It is not possible to explain or understand the nuances on a single occasion. To start with, reduce the amount to one third of what you are presently taking. Avoid all fats – they have double the energy of carbohydrates. You should see a good DIETICIAN - One generally needs SEVERAL sessions, to master concepts of calories, nutritional values, biological value, vitamins, minerals and so on. Exercise helps But, you need to do really severe and prolonged exercise – several hours. Start half an hour a day and slowly step up every week. Its role is however is limited. For example, in walking 1 kilometre, one spends 1 Calorie per kilogram of his body weight! A cup of rice or an average bar of chocolate has approximately 200 calories. A treadmill may help. The ideal solution is to get yourself enrolled in a Gym and have a supervised program. SUGAR – Random value is normal. Next time (say 1 year), check Fasting and after 2 hours of 75 grams glucose Also check your kidney function and Lipids (Cholesterol, Triglyceride) then Avoid tobacco & Alcohol… Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
