Brief Answer:
Risk factors for stroke to be controlled

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

a TIA can indikate future stroke risk, therefor:

Your doc should control and check for risk factors for future stroke/ tia with you, which are:

arterial hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking. This could be: special healthy nutrtion plan (low fat, low carb), enough physical activity, if you smoke smoking stop programm, if necessary medication to control high cholesterol or diabetes. If you have high blood pressure there is also medication and above pointed out lifestyle adjustments further to be discussed to keep it in normal range. Please have your doc check you blood sugar again especially, since 130mg/dl without breakfast (no coffee/ sugar?) is too high (should be below 110) but the testing should be repeated.
That is what you and your doc should plan. Also some regular blood thinning medication as stroke prevention like aspirin should be discussed. The moderate lung expansion is nothing serious for now, but may be observed through your gp, smoking or asthma are possible causes.

Best regards

Dr. Seckendorff:

I guess all the good doctors think the same. That were exactly the advices that my family doctor gave me today. He is putting me on a cholesterol medication, and also aspirin 81 gm, three times a week even though I did have lots of stomach problems. He asked me to check my b/p for next week and blood sugar 2 hours after I eat and we will meet again next week to see if my condition improve or not. However, I like to exercise because it will help me to lower my blood pressure and may be cholesterol but my symptoms of dizziness and over all not feeling well prevent me to do so. I am still puzzle why i am so tired, like cement on my vein after I eat. I feel I could not function after I eat? any input on that. lastly, I forgot to mention to my doctor that I felt choking, felt like something are on my throat.

thanks,

regards,

Brief Answer:
Lighter meals advisable and mild exercise programm

Detailed Answer:
Dear patient,

according to your tiredness after meals you might want to try lighter meals and beginn with a mild exercise program like 20 minute walks. This can be a normal phenomenon of digestion to some extend.

About the choking: your gp might palpate your thyroid to see if it may be enlarged. Also a pharygo/ laryngoskopy through an ent doctor can rule out any throat inflammation or other problems that may cause the choking feeling.

Hi. I am a thirty year old female. am a thirty year old female. I was diagnosed with primary hypertension at age 25. My average reading at diagnosis was 145/110, with peak reading at 185/120. In the past few years, my blood pressure readings have averaged out to slightly above normal with medications, averaging 125/95. However, yesterday I had a higher reading of 150/105 and earlier tonight my blood pressure spiked to 140/115 but has now dropped back down to 135/90. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at age 25 with a fasting blood sugar of 385. Now my blood sugar is in close to normal levels and is treated with Metformin and diet. My A1C is also in normal ranges. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol at age 26. At diagnosis, my total cholesterol was 310. Now it is down to 210 with medication and diet. At diagnois, my LDL cholesterol was 220 and has now dropped to 135 with medications. At diagnosis my HDL cholesterol was 75 and has now risen to 90 with my total cholesterol level being 210 at my last appointment with my cardiologist which was two weeks ago. I have been obese for most of my life and have been unable to lose much weight even with diet and exercise. At my heaviest, I weighed 285 pounds and am now down to 245 pounds which is about 110 pounds overweight. I take Metformin, Benicar, and Vytorin. Last night, I felt naseous and had waves of slight pain and pressure in my chest. I also felt pain in my jawline and left elbow area, which came and went in waves. I was sweating more than usual and was dizzy, but felt better with rest. Today I went about my normal routine, but felt dizzy when I went on my evening walk and now my left arm is numb. With my history, should I go to the ER just be sure this isn t cardiac related?
