Have hypertension while at stress. What can I do to reduce my flabs?

Hello Doctor, I m a 29 yr. old male from Kolkata, India. I m 5 ft 9 inches tall and currently weighing 86 kgs! No matter how much I exercise or control my diet with proper nutritional foods (no suppliments), I still am pretty much flabby. Plus, I still cannot grow beard to full extents, which is pretty embarrassing :( I also feel slight hypertension and elevated blood-pressure while at stress . Please advice.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM!
Sometimes you amy have subtle hormonal imbalance or deficiency and hence poor beard growth and obesityetc.
You could consult an endocrinologist and see if hormone assays/ levels need to be done to see any deficiency state.
Check BP regularly.
Stop worrying and do not feel embarrassed. People have many worse things and are still happy and successful.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!

It is good that you take care of your health,but try to avoid stress in day to day life and learn to tolerate stress in a more positive ways as some stress is bound to be there.
If you are overweight and sometimes hypertension then take up lifestyle modifications like take less salt
Take low fat and low calories low carbohydrate diet take help of dietician and take up walking 4 to 5 km brisk walk or jogging.
Keep a record of Blood pressure recording.
Also consult a Physician/Endocrinologist to rule out any hormone problem as facial hair growth is an issue with you.
Have positive attitude join some yoga and meditation to reduce stress.
Over weight some tmes have genetical problem, which must be looked in to.
Best of luck
