2123020 tn?1335049058 Hi there, Uncontrolled blood pressure can result in severe complications like stroke, heart attack .kidney failure etc.Besides taking your medications regularly there are certain things which should be taken care of. You should maintain a healthy weight range for your height and body type. Exercise or brisk walk daily for 30-45 minutes can help in alleviating stress. Limiting sodium intake by eliminating table salt, cooking salt, and salty and processed foods can help in some extent.
Avatar n tn I had a minor stroke 4 days ago and I also have a very rapid heart rate. My doctor sent me for a Cat Scan and blood tests yesterday. I have since eliminated alcohol, cigarettes, fats & sugars from my life. Can you tell me how soon & what type of exercise I should do to improve my well-being, also if the stroke was caused by fatty deposits do these deposits go away in time by retaining a healthy lifestyle.
Avatar n tn There are other causes also that cause stroke, one being something called Atrial Fibrillation, which is an irregular heart beat, and this usually caused by high blood pressure, but not always. Other causes of stroke include any conditions that make the blood thick, such as cancers or autoimmune conditions, or inherited disorders.

Avatar n tn calorie-count.com It is not a diet but a pretty nice site for counting calories and analyzing your diet. I have used this site for over 9 months. I have lost 50 pounds, my blood pressure has dropped from 145/88 to 115/75, my cholesterol has come down to 160, I have dropped one cholesterol drug, and one blood pressure med. I was a type II diabetic and am now off all diabetic meds. I exercise daily, a one hour walk, and am feeling better than I have in 20 years. I am 63 years old. I believe Dr.
Avatar n tn The doctors advised that they would perform a procedure where they would stop the heart and then restart it to try and get the heart back into a good rhythm. However this could not be done as they found that he had a blood clot in the heart and was advised that it would be too risky to perform such a procedure in case the clot travelled to the brain and caused a stroke. We were also advised that his heart is only working 25% and continues to race.
Avatar n tn I was released after 3 days and doctors are still confused. I have mini stroke or seizure? as my dx. They released with with aspirin and a pat on the back. First day my arm went linp and I went to call for help my mouth would not move and my speech was slurred, it only lasted a minute. 2nd day, I went to yell at my dog for stealing food and my left leg went limp and again my speech slurred.
Avatar n tn my 19 year old granddaughter was airlifted to a trauma center from her college with all the classic symptoms of a stroke (drooping face/eye, left arm weakness, left leg weakness, could not move her tongue to the left, could not inflate her cheeks on the left side pain in the right side of her head) after admission to the local ER her symptoms started to subside and after arriving at the new trauma center the symptoms continued to subside.
Avatar n tn why have you lost so much weight? are you exercising too much or on a special restrictive diet? do you get enough sleep? there is a good chance that this was a mild faint spell rather than a mini-stroke but you won't know until you have a full evaluation. probably you should get a heart evaluation as well as a doppler test of your brain and neck arteries to make sure you don't have any blockages.
Avatar n tn -- CT scan of brain immediately after surgery. - Doctors determined that he suffered a stroke possibly during or near the end of leg surgery. - Blood thinners adminstered approx 11:00-midnight. - Overnight, my brother showed more and more symptoms of stroke as he fully lost all control of right side and speech. - Morning, swelling in brain... steroids administered. - Morning to current, he seems to have stablized from my own observation...
Avatar m tn I have endured the anguish of too many friends dying from heart attacks and, on the assumption that perhaps I am at a higher level of risk of suffering a heart attack and/or a stroke (both of which I understand originate from a blood clot becoming mechanically lodged in a narrowed artery) would I be well advised to contemplate the following series of procedures as a preventative measure before the onset of a possible emergency??
Avatar n tn We are now on hold because of her racing heart. They won't do the MRI or x-ray until they slow the heart down. Her pain is so intense that morphine, vicaden, pain patches and a muscle relaxer are being used but dont' do much. Any idea what the pain may be? Also, how long can her heart beat this fast?
Avatar f tn 5 ounces of most nuts, including almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. And even though almonds are relatively high in fat and calories, studies show that eating almonds can actually help with weight loss (their protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fats provide the feeling of fullness, preventing overeating).
Avatar n tn While there are many good tests to check for heart disease (EKG, echos, stress tests, etc.), is there any good tests to check for stroke risk, ie; are routine CAT scans of the brain a good check for stroke risk, or is there too much cost and/or radiation with doing something like that?.. Also, when do you generally start treatment for hypertension, when someones BP is over 140/90, or when it is over 120/80?...And which number is more important, systolic or diastolic?....
Avatar m tn The causes of stroke are multiple and could include embolism from the heart or other areas (such as the aorta or other parts of the body), bleeds, atherosclerosis of the blood vessels, vasculitis (or inflammatory processes affecting the blood vessels of the brain), and others. The prevention of stroke typically depends on what are the risk factors a patient has. These may include aspirin, certain blood thinners, or cholesterol-lowering medications.
Avatar m tn Aspirin, an anti-thrombotic drug, is given immediately after an ischemic stroke to reduce the likelihood of having another stroke. Some stroke patients do appear to have 100 percent recovery. And many regain a great deal of their abilities. If the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
1344197 tn?1392822771 Hysterectomy for benign, non cancerous, indications is one of the commonest surgical procedures in women, but the association between the procedure and the increase risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), heart attack and stroke is not fully understood. Hysterectomy has traditionally been considered the method of choice for treating a variety of benign, non-cancerous, gynecological disorders due to the low surgical complication rate and definite cure of these diseases.
Avatar f tn I was told I was at a very high risk of having heart disease or a stroke through having complex sleep apnea. My father's blood timing disorder killed him at 38. It is important to get your blood pressure down. Alcohol will increase blood pressure. I don't drink but my blood pressure is starting to rise, so I will be drinking more water, and using stress relieving methods as much as possible. My friend's blood pressure rose when she was dehydrated and rushing around.
Avatar n tn The problem with being on medication, particularly blood thinners, is that a lot of what's used to tackle plaque, which causes strokes as well as heart attacks, also thins blood. Magnesium is one of the body's relaxants, including relaxing the heart muscle, so it's not likely to provide energy. The beta blocker can be a source of tiredness, but so can the trauma she's experienced.
Avatar n tn Second I would recommend a echocardiogram of your heart, to assess your ejection fraction, the health of your valves (it sound like there may be a problem from your post), and to evaluate for a PFO (small hole in the middle of the heart). I would also suggest that you wear a heart monitor (HOLTER) for at least 48 hours to make sure your heart is not beating funny (atrial fibrilation), because this can lead to strokes and requires a different medication (coumadin).
Avatar n tn Hi, The time when swallowing ability comes back for a patient who suffered from stroke depends on a lot of factors such as the severity of stroke, the extent of damage or his body response. A swallow test involves seeing if a person can swallow a little bit of water without coughing or choking. If the person has any difficulties swallowing, they will be seen by a speech and language therapist, who can assess the problem and work out a diet that is easy to eat.
Avatar n tn //www.bodyandfitness.com/Information/Health/antioxidant.htm To much to paste here. http://www.amazon.com/Homocysteine-Revolution-Kilmer-S-McCully/dp/0879839759/ref=cm_syf_dtl_pl_5_rdsssl0/102-1780927-4832161/102-1780927-4832161 Arterial plaque is, in essence a form of scab that forms on wounded arteries to protect us from internal hemorrhaging. What causes wounded arteries? One cause is free radicals, which can be combatted by antioxidants.
Avatar n tn My second son had Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome, and would have required open heart surgery just days after birth had he lived. I have excellent cholesterol, and HDL, but my triglycerides are high, very high to be precise. Those of us with MTHFR are prone to hardening of the arteries, strokes, blood clots, heart failure, and Alzheimer's, Please look at Dr. Ben Lynch's site, as this is his primary focus and has been for nearly twenty years.
Avatar n tn Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Of course, the best solution is to forego soda altogether. Diet soda is associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome. Regular soda is dense with calories and sugar. Water has none of these drawbacks.
Avatar n tn Finally noticed a correlation with ingesting artificial sweeteners. Diet Coke, diet yogurt, diet candy, Crystal Lite -- you get the picture. Stopped use of "diet" stuff. Pressure went away -- not experienced for 2 years now. Can't hurt.
Avatar n tn Hi, my 15 yr old had a stroke this weekend. He is doing better after a week in the hospital but my question is about his future. Apparently he had a blood clot that they cannot find the source of. He is regaining most of his left side control and memory continues to improve. He is a very active child and is in excellent health, but now he has to take it easy for a while.
