Heart problems and high blood pressure. What are the foods to avoid ?
I have been told that people with heart problems and high blood pressure must avoid eating things that contain sugar. But which are these things? Is it possible to find a list with what you can eat and what you cannot?
If you have problem with your heart and high blood pressure,you must avoid fatty foods and salty foods.Also abstain yourself on eating junk foods.Exercise regularly.Eat balance diet and avoid sleeping late at night.If you are smoker avoid it if you can and also drink moderately.If you cannot avoid drinking drink only red wine
Hi Mickji! One of the biggest and hardest to give up is sodium. Sodium makes things taste good. It is in everything, including some natural plants and foods. Watching the milligrams of sodium is hard because the total for the day adds up so quickly. Need to avoid eating processed foods, cured meats. Instead eat fresh meat and veggies. Avoid anchovies, olives, pickles and sauerkraut. Most cooking sauces have a ton of sodium/salt. Soy Worcestershire sauce and most cheeses. Instead of using sauces use other flavorings pepper, garlic, herbs and lemon. The sugars to avoid say "High Fructose" and contain corn syrup sweeteners (limit to 25 gr per day). Eating this makes the uric acid in the blood shoot way up so have your uric acid checked to know how much this is a problem. I will look up more suggestions for you. Bob.
Here everything is prepared at home,so cooking sauces can be deleted from the list. The problems persists on olives and oil, because saying to an Italian to avoid them is like talking to a wall.
I kinda thought that might be the case. But do the best you can. That's all you can do. It may not be that bad if you can trim away other salt from the diet. I will pray for her and you.
I thank you because you made a list of foods to aviod and mentioned uric acid. I hope there will be a medical exam to check it (here some things cannot be checked, that are instead checked in the US). I hope that iodized sodium salt will also help..
You should avoid all foods that have salt. Cured meats, potato chips, misso and many others. Look at the ingredient list; the first ingredients in the list means the ones in larger quantities. I believe sugar to also to raise blood pressure. Glucose is a irritant and causes to smaller vessels to constrict raising BP, however most people don't believe that.
Miso too ?This is sad, seems that no food escape from the list of things to avoid. Other than popato chips, also boiled potatoes must be avoided?
I will check the list of ingredients and see which are on top. Often here you don't find detailed lists.
Not to take away from anything suggested here, some very good advice. Only to add a few that you should add. Celery has been found to lower blood pressure with in a week. 4 stalks a day, or taken in supplement form. Some of the others are hawthorn berry, and garlic. If you combine with prescription meds, make sure to check often. Low blood pressure is just as bad as high blood pressure. Symptoms of low blood pressure include dizziness, weakness, and fatigue.
For heart problems the foods that contain CoQ10, such as peanuts, and beef will help with angina, and encourage regular heart rhythms. May also be taken in supplement form. Choose a reputable brand, in oil base, so as to insure maximum absorbency.
Read my article about heart health, for other recommendations.
Hope it helps.
I didn't knew about celery !I will tell her because she never cook dishes with celery.
I thought that peanuts were fatty food that must be avoided because they cause problems to kidneys also.
Hawthorn berry there aren't in the shop, where to find it?
Peanuts have gotten a bad rap. Hawthorn berry can be found http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002P … d=ETJT2TWG
I really thank you ! I didn't knew this kind of things can be bought online.I'm still new to that. Celery, Peanuts and Hawthorn will be added to the diet.
Is it safe to use peanuts oil as a supplement? Because I read that oil should be avoid
Peanut Oils, and natural oils are good fats. Most of the oils are synthetic, they do clog arteries, and cause high cholesterol. so thereby raising blood pressure. Avoid hydrogenated oils, the good fats will not cause a problem. You are welcome!
This means that almond, olive, palm, sunflower and mais oil are all good. Some people said to avoid olive oil because it is fatty, so I thought that any oil must be avoided
The good fats are essential nutrients Some others are coconut oil, very good for cooking, as well as walnut oil. Unless you have fatty liver disease, it shouldn't cause a problem. Because the good fats are natural, the body will utilize them.
