This query is regarding my father diet.
Last month, my father was tested positive for Corona. So he took suggested medication which includes (Hydroxychlroquine, Azithromycin, Fluvir, Ivermectin, Zinc and C vitamin) during his home isolation. Last week, he again had testing, this time he tested negative. But from past few days he is feeling tired at evenings which makes his hands shiver a bit, and he feels hunger and eating something like Almonds, Cashews and Apple. The severity seems reducing slowly but not negligible, so we consulted a doctor and had BP and Sugar Tests, BP reading shows 180/114 and Sugar levels are at 221.
Doctor prescribed medicines for BP, Sugar, Sleeping Pills and a tablet for Allergy. Losur-H -- BP Glimestar M1 -- Sugar (half tablet) Montelukast sodium and levocetirizine hydrochloride -- Allergy Trika (0.25 Mg) -- Sleeping
My father never had symptoms of Blood Pressure and Diabetes earlier, after this Corona affect he got this weakness. Note: During home isolation, his diet also changed alot. (Very less diary products, warm water, less oily foods). So, considering above details and my father's health condition, Could you please provide diet for my father who have High BP(180/114) and Diabetes(221). Age: 58 and he is Vegetarian.
Hello, welcome to icliniq, Don’t worry much everything will be alright soon. I think all of you all are stressed up much including your father. I can understand it’s pressurising this corona. Everything will fall in place soon. The weakness you need not to worry it’s very common after any viral infection. You can give all general diet which he was eating prior to infection. But, make sure to avoid pickles , foods which has preservatives and sweets. Make sure to include soups of vegetables and green gram. Let me take sufficient rest at the same time simple exercise and walk up to 30 minutes is advisable. Boost his confidence that’s more important than anything else. I really appreciate your concern towards your father. I wouldn’t have started BP and diabetic medications. After monitoring the BP readings for a week or two only we can diagnose as it as high blood pressure. Same applies for diabetes, we need to see for hb1ac and then we need to start medications untill it should be controlled with diet. I would suggest you to check with your health provider again.
