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.
Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.
Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.
Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?
Other drug that I take;
- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg
- Plavix 1 x 75 mg
- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.
Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
