You say your being medicated, so your seeing a Dr. Why don't you talk to him/her. Medical professionals do not diagnose over the Internet.

Hi, I found many cook books on the internet for low fat recipe and to reduce blood pressure. I found most of the recipes are American or Italian or something else. Has anyone tried to get some recipes of Indian cuisine and if so please help me with a link? Many sites say that those recipes were recommended by the American Heart Association. Is there anything called Indian Heart Association and if so what is the diet or cook book that is recommended by it.

Hi my BP has shown an upward trend in last 3-4 months; from 110/70 is now @ 140/100. HDL is 29 and Total Cholesterol is 209, Triglycerides at an alarming 500+; my doc has recommended a cholesterol lowering medicine and a blood thinning tab to be taken for next 2 months. Since i work in an IT environment my physical activity is almost as good as zero. my sugar is under control and i quit smoking 22 months back. i do not take regular alcohol (apart from 1-2 beers in a month). Things have already started: daily morning 2 mile brisk walking; cut down on clarified butter (home made) completely; stopped late night working on laptop; sound sleep for 8 hours; please let me know what else i should do to reduce my cholesterol and BP.
