NO,EGG IS A FULL NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT AND DOES NOT INVOLVE INCREASE IN BLOOD PRESSURE WHEN TAKEN AS A PART OF BALANCED DIET.

THE YOLK OF EGG CAN INCREASE LDL WHEN CONSUMED EXCESSIVELY AND PRODUCT LIKE OMLETE USES ADDITIONAL OIL WHICH MAKES IT SOMEWHAT UNHEALTHY.

EATING I EGG(BOILED)OR OMLETE PREAPEARED IN OILLESS NONSTIC WARES IS GOOD FOR PROTEINS,CALCIUM AND PHOSPHORUS.

Hi well come HCM.
Egg yolk contains lot of cholesterol, may not have any immediate, but indirectly by
impact on cholesterol can have marginal effect on long run. Thanks

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
