Hello doctor,

I am 31 year old, who has mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy and grade 2 diastolic dysfunction. I was alcoholic and used to smoke from past five years, but now I quit. I am on Nebivolol 5 mg and Amlodipine 2.5 mg medication. The diastolic blood pressure was on the higher side, so I quit smoking five days back. Now my blood pressure is around 130-135/90-100 mmHg. I do not have kidney damage, my creatine is 0.88, thyroid is normal, and I am not diabetic. I currently take Nebistar SA. I am obese and my total cholesterol is 213. Will mild concentric LVH regress with diet and exercise?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Do not worry, completely stop smoking and alcohol forever. Do not restart again as it will adversely affect your health.
  • I suggest you try taking these following medicines. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines after their consent.
  1. Tablet Aztor 10 (Atorvastatin), once daily after dinner.
  2. Tablet Cardace 2.5 (Ramipril), one tablet before breakfast, this will bring down your blood pressure. Your target blood pressure should be 120/80 mmHg.
  3. Avoid fried, fatty, salty, and spicy food.

We will review after two months.

Hello doctor,

Thank you so much for replying. Should I discontinue Nebistar SA? Can I exercise and go to the gym?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You continue all your medicines along with that, start the two medicines that I have suggested, after consulting your doctor.
  • You avoid going to the gym, you can do walking. Weight control will help you further.

Hi doctor,

Thank you so much for the response. Do you think with BP and diet control, can I live for another 20 years? I am 31 now, I am very attached to my son, so please tell me my life expectancy.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You are like my son, and I think you will live for 40 to 50 years more.
  • Yes, regularly check your BP, live a disciplined life, and you will do fine.
