Hello
Your BP is very high and you are obese by about 35kg according to your height (BMI 35 ). You need to :
1 Reduce your wt to about70 Kg
2 Reduce salt intake to the minimum.
3 perform regular exercises
4 Take drugs (e.g. Amilodipine + Losartan potassium + low dose Aspirin )
5 Measure your BP regularly.
I do'nt want to scare you, but I think in addition to the above measures
you need to see a doctor IMMEDIATELY.
Thanks

Hi, Are you having a family history of Hypertension?
Is your blood pressure always remains high?
Thorough investigations are necessary.
Apart from the medicine for hypertension, you must restrict your diet, do lot of exercise, daily walking at least 5 kms.
Eat more of green vegetables, salads without salt. Restrict salt, oils, ghee. butter, cheese and fast foods.
Do relaxation exercises also.
All these measures will help you a lot.
It will also decrease the dose of antihypertensive medicine.

Hello, Welcome to healthcaremagic forum.
You seem to have HTN. but is it always ur BP is raised?
at present if u can, then i would suggest you to take homoeopathic medicine Rauwolfia serpentina tincture (Q) 8-10 drops in 1/2 glass of water to immediately get your BP to normal. then get ur BP monitored for a week daily at fixed time and note it down to get a fair idea of ur regular BP value.
also u should take a salt restricted diet with no added salt in rice or salad or fruits or juices. instead opt for kala namak in fruits or buttermilk as it is high in potassium.
A light exercise and yoga and meditation under an expert guidance will surely help u maintain ur BP. u must consult a physician nearby for your BP if it is constantly high who will then carry out few investigations (if necessary) and give the adquate medication. for a detailed diet for high BP, contact: Dr. Rooma Ramnani, rhramnani@hotmail.com.
take care.

Dr. Rooma Ramnani.

I am 39 years old and recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure (BP daily average ~ 140/100). I got my blood/urine work done and following were the alarming indicators: 1) Serum Creatinine - 1.35 and 1.54 mg/dl (from 2 tests, one week apart) 2) eGFR (non african) - 66 and 56 (from 2 tests, one week apart) My Doctor suggested to have another blood work done in a week to check if these level return to normal, otherwise she would recommend to see Nephrologist.. Can someone tell me how bad these numbers are from Kidney function point of view? Thanks.

Hi, I think I have high BP. When I measure at home it is normally 125/85. I have tried various instruments and most readings are consistent. However when I go to a doctor the readings shoot up to 110/85-90. I don t know if this is white coat hypertension..how can one tell? Also when I take BP medicine , very small dose , 25mg of atenolol, I somehow feel better and my heart beat slows from 75-80 to 65-70. Is it dangerous to take BP medicine without having BP?

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
