Brief Answer:
Executive and Salt restriction

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query..

Yes, the BP readings you have seen, needs medication for sure.

Also right that if you are started on medications, it usually is for life.

I recommend you to restrict salt in diet and exercise atleast for a hour per day. This surely will show good results.

I suggest you to check BP only weekly nnce repeated testing might make you anxious and inturn raise the BP

Hope, I answered your query

Please do ask if any doubts.

Hello doctor I understand but what making me worry some is my blood pressure its fluctuating both mine as well as my husband’s and today it was 132/90 sometime 144/97 and last night it was 128/86.

So I walk whole day at my work my work is standing whole 8hours.

I wonder hope I dont have any other problem my blood work came normal except my MCH level low for which I have been prescribed for iron ferrous fumerate. Also other side i take my multivitamins and omega 3 supplements so does this rise in blood pressure level as well ? Sometime I feel pain in my chest right side for a second once in a blue moon.

So I don’t know what should i do.

Brief Answer:
Need not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The blood pressure is very dynamic, it keeps on changing based on our physical and mental activity.

For right sided chest pain, you may have to be examined. Also do get an ECG to rule out any heart issues.

Hello Doctor also my MCV and MCH are low and potassium marginal high and my eGFR is 116.

I am attaching reports for your reference for MCV and MCH doctor prescribed me ferrous fumerate 300mg once daily for a month.

Also I know because of life stress and as I was not aware before this I used to drink hard liquor on weekends Friday(375ml whisky) saturday (375ml whisky) and sunday (375ml whisky). I know I did mistake but recently I got to know this thing can cause a breast cancer, right now my breast are normal there is no pain and no lump nothing but because of this I decided and quit my drinking habit but I want to avoid this breast cancer issue I still don’t know the cause of breast cancer and in my family history no one has it till now.

Could you please suggest some supplements that can help removing toxins from my body so that I reduce the chance of breast cancer. Because on google its mentioned clearly that alcohol causes breast cancer so i am very much worried as I started weekend drinking since year 2022 january before this I was non drinker and used to drink once in blue moon.


Please do let me know supplements like milk thistle that can help remove toxins from my body to decrease the chance rate of getting breast cancer.
