ANNUAL PHYSICALS

Physical exams are an important part of doctors’ visits. Amazingly, although, there is no absolute in a physical routine. But the best therapists on our site spend time listening to people’s issues and concerns. They offer to counsel for your specific complaints and risk factors.

These are several important signs checked by our physicist;

  • Blood pressure

Less than 120 and less than 80 is normal blood pressure. We define high blood pressure (hypertension) as 130 over 80 or higher.

  • Heart rate

Values between 70 and 100 are taken as normal. Several healthy people have heart rates slower than 70.

  • Respiration rate

From 12-16 breaths per minute is normal or regular for a healthy person. Breathing over twenty times per minute recommends heart or lung issues.

  • Temperature

HYPERTENSION MANAGEMENT

We have a perfect doctor’s team to manage hypertension. Suffering from resistant hypertension doe not mean your blood pressure will never be lowered. If our doctors determine the cause and the main lead of the issue, a more efficient treatment plan can be produced to help you fulfill your goal of blood pressure.

Our professional team deals with resistant hypertension that include several steps like;

  • Changing your high blood pressure medications to determine which combinations and doses work best
  • Reviewing all the medications you take, including those that you take for other conditions or buy without a prescription
  • Monitoring your blood pressure at home to see if going to the doctor causes your blood pressure to increase (white coat hypertension)
  • Making healthy lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet with less salt, maintaining a healthy weight, and limiting alcohol

We take a blood test checking cholesterol levels known as a lipid panel usually explains;

  • Triglycerides — a kind of fat in the blood

For the correct and authentic measurements, we advise people to avoid eating or drinking anything (other than water) for 9 to 12 hours before going through a blood test.

Other than treatments, our experts also recommend some lifestyle changes. Our suggestions include medication, yoga exercising, and eating a well-balanced diet. These are the defensive steps against high cholesterol. However, in case you have made these essential lifestyle changes and your cholesterol level is still out of control, then our medical staff will suggest

medication.

The choice of medication or combination of medications depends on various factors, including your risk factors, your age, your health, and possible drug side effects.

DIABETES MANAGEMENT
