Avatar f tn however, if you had blood loss both iron stores and blood pressure would decrease. Suggest increasing your salt intake in foods or drinks (Gatorade) to help keep your blood pressure from decreasing. Women have a higher demand for iron then men due to monthly menstrual flow. There are 2 types of iron in our food sources, Heme iron and Non-Heme iron. Heme iron is from animal sources and Non-Heme is plant sources.
Avatar f tn Has anyone any experience with developing widespead multiple chemical sensitivity and allergic reactions to all kinds of foods and unknown allergens involving swelling of the tongue and respiratory distress following a medication for high blood pressure? This is a senior citizen who is in otherwise very good health but is losing so much weight because she cannot eat anything and this is baffling doctors.
Avatar n tn is it possible that acid reflux can be associate with stress and high blood pressure.
Avatar n tn My husband is 59 year old type 1 diabetic with blood pressure readings as high as 240 over 127. He has tried every group of blood pressure meds and has bad reactions to all of them. Many have actually made his blood pressure higher. He is now having kidney problems and I believe CHF (will get MD results tomorrow from cardiologist). Is their anything natural that he can take that will not cause the side effects of pharmacutical meds?
Avatar n tn Hi, I have high blood pressure too. What Bloke1981 has explained is entirely true. In april 2009 I was rushed to the ER for a rapid heartrate after eating, 133 bpm. After ondergoing several test I was diagnosed (may 2009) with mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. Since then I am on beta blockers, Nebivolol (Bystolic) for tachycardia. before that my resting heartrate was around 80/90. Now my heart rate is around 55-70.
Avatar m tn Your dad is correct, disruptive sleep patterns caused by sleep apnea have been linked to elevating glucose levels and diabetes, high blood pressure, lack of energy, moodiness, and cardio unrest. Getting a good nights rest is one key in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Avatar n tn I am 28 years old and am on the verge of being diabetic. Everyone in my family is diabetic. I am 5'7, 260 lbs. I know if i lose weight and take better care of myself i can keep from being diabetic, but i am already getting the symptoms. Does anyone know of a web site or anyone i can talk to about the right diet or meal plans to get my health back in tune.
390388 tn?1279639813 I'm guessing so if you are checking your blood sugar levels. Being diabetic and having lots of heart trouble and high blood pressure issues myself, I can tell you that a fasting glucose reading of 200 would get my attention in a New York minute. Your arteries are becoming inflamed at that reading and you will start to experience high blood pressure as well as be at risk for blood clots in your heart arteries.
1773108 tn?1314161667 Good Morning, I have a question about high blood sugar levels that don't seem to stabilize. My boyfriend has been struggling for years with high blood sugar. He told me this morning that his level was at 480+!!!! He says he doesn't feel any different whether it's high or low. The lowest it's been (to my knowledge) is still in the high range of 200+. He's one of those who just try to do things "naturally" so therefore is not currently taking RX meds, just natural supplements.
Avatar n tn She can't seem to tolerate blood pressure medications in any dosage--it causes her blood pressure to drop extremely low. She has had all sorts of tests for her high blood pressure with no causes found. Are there any vitamin supplements or specific foods which could help regulate her blood pressure? Is there something she should or shouldn't do first thing in the morning? Something she should or shouldn't eat? The only other medication she is on is synthroid.
193177 tn?1218694001 I have Hep C, diabetes, high blood pressure, sarcoidosis, etc. I believe your diabetes is most likely the result of the Hep C. It does make you insulin resistant. I've been on metformin (oral meds) for a couple years now. I thought metformin was processed in the kidneys not the liver. However, I'm not cirrhotic, I'm still in grade/stage 3. Did you TX for the HCV? I did for a year, but relapsed.
404389 tn?1217034304 I would appreciate if you would let me know, because I am not getting much response from my doctor about it. High blood pressure runs in my family, so he just assumes it is just genetic. I wanted to make sure!
Avatar f tn Blood pressure medication is also indicated if you have high blood pressure. Control the amount of carbs you eat. Avoid / limit bread, rice, pasta, corn and sweet fruits. Eat foods that are low glycaemic index. All other vegetables are fine to eat. Meats and fats are ok. Daily exercise of at least 30 minutes walking will help. Even better if you can walk for 30 minutes after each main meal. Hope this can help you.
4939681 tn?1361302899 I would lay down, the nurse would take my blood pressure it would be normal. I stood up and my blood pressure dropped dangerously low, about 30 points less which caused me to pass out or become very dizzy in less than a minute. Not sure if yours is like that but I would say Lyme does have an effect on BP because of all the people I know that have that. In my non medical opinion.
535822 tn?1443980380 Diastolic is the lower or second number, which is generally lower. It measures blood pressure during the heart's rest points. There are blood pressure reading devices located in several pharmacies and Whole Foods stores. This infographic will help you understand your readings. (http://www.bloodpressureuk.org) Realize your readings will vary according to your emotional and mental condition or physical exertion level at the time you strap onto a machine. It's appropriate to measure often.
Avatar n tn Drinking whisky in a person with diabetes may cause damage of nerves in arms and legs, high blood pressure, eye complications etc.It is best to avoid it completely. Exercising daily for 20-30 minutes is helpful in diabetics. Avoid exercises which may put extra strain on the heart. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn After I gave birth my blood pressure lowered again but this past week I have had bad high blood pressure again and went to the dr and he started me on medicine and did lab work. All of my lab work came back normal but he had me have a renal ultrasound today to check kidney function. I'm haven't heard my results but during the ultrasound the tech asked if I was diabetic and when I said no, she just stopped talking. Now I'm nervous she saw something but couldn't say anything.
Avatar n tn 1 I know i am overweight and I try to watch what i eat but I never sit down until night time always very active have high blood pressure but under control no one can explain these weakness attacks any advice !!!!!
Avatar m tn Since you are from India, I would also regularly get blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked because we Indian are prone to metabolic syndrome where blood sugar, lipids and blood pressure are all elevated and leads to a number of problems. Specific diet changes 1. when it comes to rotis, do not sieve the flour. If possible add extra bran. The chapati may not look appetizing but the fiber in the bran will slow done sugar absorption 2. Avoid fried foods like bhajiya or samosas 3.
Avatar n tn I'm in good health, I have high blood pressure that is controled by meds. I bought a AccuCheck Active tester. I check my blood sugar regularly 2 hours after I eat, it usually ranges between 118-125. In the mornings when I wake up, usually sleep 5 - 6 hours, my test reads anywhere between 111-118. My question is am I a Diabetic? I don't have increased thirst, I don't frequently urinate. I have noticed when I get hungry I have a burning sensation in my stomach.
646318 tn?1261185094 Diets containing foods that are good sources of potassium and low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke." One cup of avocado has 23% of the Daily Value for folate, a nutrient important for heart health.

325405 tn?1262293778 For me it happened when my doctor had to start me on a rx to lower my choleserol (already on rx for high blood pressure). I didn't need any more warning signs and made up my mind that I had to make healthy choices and fast. I slid by for alot of years carrying extra weight and not much exercise. I know if I didn't change my lifestyle I am a good candidate for stroke, heart attack, etc. and I am going to do everything I can to live a quality life.
Avatar f tn I have had a poor appetite, nausea, some diarrhea, extreme fatigue, hot and cold sweats, blurry vision, dizziness, deleria, anxiety, poor response to stress levels, lethargy, extreme pain in my legs and feet, numbness and tingling in my arms and hands I went to my physician and he had know explanation for why my blood sugar levels were high, my blood pressure was elevated despite taking medications.

Avatar m tn Also, it is important to control glucose levels by maintaining normal body weight, eating the correct foods - no sugary foods, no dairy, no white flour, etc - exercise 30-60 mins daily, and maintain normal blood pressure and lipid panels.
Avatar n tn I worry a bit as I know beta blockers lower blood pressure, as well as heart rates. My blood pressure generally runs about 110/70 (or lower) and my resting heart rate is in the low 50's. He said not to worry about my blood pressure as long as I am feeling OK, and to just watch my pulse rate. If it goes below 40/minute I need to cut back on the medication. (I am only taking 10 mgs in the am and 15 mgs in the evening...sure is hard cutting up those 20 mg tablets!
Avatar m tn I got down to 142-144 and thought I was doing pretty well, but my cholesterol and triglycerides were still high. Moderately high blood pressure, etc. So, last December my nurse practitioner asked if I would be interested in trying a diet to curb inflammatory disease. ( I have MS, asthma, arthritis. Diabetes would be considered an inflammatory disease as well.) I thought I could give it a whirl! Well, I've been on it now 10 months and am down to 120 and a size 2! I feel great!
