Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com.

Firstly, i would like to know if your hypertension under control with these medications. Given that you also have diabetes your target bp is 130/80. So kindl ??y let me know the status.

As far as your pain is concerned it doesn't seem to be angina. However other causes of pain need to be ruled out. I suggest you get a chest xray PA view done along with an echo of the heart. If the pain is towards the epigastrium then an ultrasound examination of the abdomen is warranted.

As for the pain or stomach problems arising post medication intake I suggest you take sartel and asomex after meals at night. In addition to this you may start pantoprazole for this stomach problem. For your hyperuricemia, febuxostat may be started.

Lifestyle modifications in the form of diet rich in green leafy vegetables, sprouts, whole grains, walnuts, almonds and a cut down on dairy and bakery products, meat and poultry along with a brisk walk of at least 30 min per day is advisable.

If you are overweight then you need to cu??t down on your weight. This may possibly restore your deranged blood glucose levels which you should repeat after say 3 months and if still elevated we may consider starting you on metformin.

As per your report i would suggest that in order to assess your target organ damage I would like to advise you to get a 2d echo done. It would be advisable if you could get a qualitative HSCRP done instead of quantitative.

Its a good news that your echo and ecg are ok. Also it is good to know that you have modified lifestyle and now are following a healthy lifestyle.

If you are having such good bp control without any medicines then its great. But the effect of these medications last for around 48 hours and the bp may rise after 48 hours. So you have to keep a watch after that. Also since you have deranged sugars a very low dose of sartel will always be beneficial despite normal bp. So if your bp is around 130 / 80 then you could start sartel at half the dose you are taking.

You need not take boiled foods all the time. You have to limit your fried items. You should restrict salt but you can be liberal with spices.
