Food To Bring Down Diastolic Number
I'll take a guess...: I think you may be referring to microalbumin - which is usually measured in the urine. It is an early indicator of kidney disease. Minimizing the risks for kidney disease by managing high blood pressure and controlling diabetes are two good ways to start. (that is, of course, if i'm answering the question you are asking.) but since i don't know for certain, please do talk with your doctor! lgromko. ...Read more

What can cause a diastolic number to drop from an average of 85 down to 61 without a change in the average systolic number?
Diastolic bp: The first thing would be blood pressure medications which at times can have a selective effect on diastolic BP over systolic. There are other condition which widen the gap btwn the two number like aortic valve regurgitation , an av fistula which is an abnormal connection btwn an artery and vein. ...Read more

If heart rate and BP are described as going the opposite way to each other on a tilt table test ie BP going down and heart rate going up what can it b?
Simple is better: Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain, and less salt. The more processed the food is, the more likelihood is that it will contain salt and other preservatives that may adversely affect bp. Also, increasing exercise and weight loss help. If there is any question of sleep apnea, get tested. That, too, can increase bp. ...Read more
My blood pressure from lying to standing is 94/59 lying to 88/57 standing and heart rate from 69 to 117. Why?
With Norvasc (amlodipine) my systolic BP drops to 118 but the diastolic hovers around 90? Is that ok are their medications/cures that work better to reduce diastol
Not good enough: At your age, a diastolic of 90 is too high! there are many BP meds available. Norvasc (amlodipine) is an excellent drug but sometimes the dose needs to be increased or a second drug added. If you are nervous when you go to your doctor, you could get a BP cuff and check your BP at home. Also there are ways other than drugs to control your BP such as avoiding salt, weight loss, excercise and smoking cessation. ...Read more
Trying understand labs if neutr % is up will it bring down lymphs % down and by this happening will it effect the absolute counts in the same way?
Just simple math: If there are 10,000 white blood cells, with 40% neutrophils and 30% lymphocytes, that means there are 4000 neut and 3000 lymph. The numbers are the machine's counting of what is in the blood. The numbers don't "do" anything. Likewise, if there are 1000 kids at school, 40% boys means 400 boys (if one leaves and is replaced by a girl, there will be 399 boys, or 39.9% boys, and 60.1% girls). ...Read more
Yes: Yes, it may.Get a more detailed answer ›
A little high: I am assuming you mean systolic of 130, not 13. A systolic of 130 is normal for most people but there are some conditions where we would like it a bit lower. Diastolic blood pressure should definitely be below 90 and 80 would be even better. A single measurement of a high blood pressure is not concerning but if the diastolic stays high you should see MD. Also avoid salt, caffeine and alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you give me a list of foods to eat that will raise HDL levels without raising total cholesterol?
Weeks of HR increase of 25+ lying to standing. From the 50's and reach 120 just walking across room. Looked at POTS but BP goes up not down. Hydrated.
BP 96/55 and HR 55 lying down. Sitting and standing BP 115/70, HR up to 100. Reasons for these large differences in BP and HR? No meds have changed.
It seems...: That you are dehydrated... These changes are normal and the values you give are not worrisome, unless you get really dizzy when standing. increase your fluid intake to no less than 80 ounces a day, not liquor! ;) ...Read more
