I am 44 yrs old male, had a blood pressure 160/100, before it I had never one. Due to some reason I had to night-wake for two days, and regularly had salty diet. it happened so due to my carelessness and was also insensitive about the effect of salty diet. After 4th day of salty food, it started to heartburn and also higher BP. I visited a doctor, had an ECG it was normal, but BP was 160/100. I completely ignored salt for three days, and started for a regular morning walk and my heart was felt being cold & BP reduced to the normal level. But after ten days it suddenly started to heartburn and higher BP nearly 140/90. I instantly took a pill of antacid and after 2hrs It came down to the normal level. Its my health condition, Now Plz doctor kindly tell me how I can keep myself healthy anf fit.

My friend is a nineteen year old male, and he shows definite signs of bulimia. He has lost 10 pounds in the past two weeks, throws up once a day (and has been for three weeks now), works out excessively, avoids eating, and has binge eating episodes. He has very low self esteem (of his body physique). I've told him to stop or get help, and have shown him websites about the effects it could have on his body if he continues, but he refuses to tell anyone besides me or get treatment. What else can I do?

I eat a lot of salty foods because I work 2 jobs and go to college. I have been trying to cut back, eating more fruits/vegs, and drink more water. However, I go through periods of heavy fast food eating, Recently I have been getting light-headed after eating fast food. I have decided to stop as of today and start planning-out my food at the beginning of each week. However, why am I light-headed? Should I go to the doc? Thanks

I am a 33 year old female, weighing 150 pounds, who has been binge eating almost consistently for the past 9 months. In the past 2 months I feel like I have to have a bowel movement almost consistently, and whenever I have a bowel movement it is bloody, dark and liquidy. Sometimes I have been unable to control my bowel movements. I can't seem to drink alcohol or coffee without having to have a bowel movement. I have already had 4 bowel movements today.
