Your Health - Helpful Tips (BP/Diet, Hay Fever & Acne)

 

Blood pressure and Diet

 

Recent evidence clearly shows that lifestyle changes in people with borderline high blood pressure helps reduce that blood pressure – in some cases this will take away the need for medication.

The advice is to:

 



    1. Have a healthy diet low in total saturated fats, red meat, sugar, sodium and refined carbohydrates.

    1. Eat a diet high in fruit and vegetables, whole grains, fish, poultry and low fat dairy products.

    1. Reduce your intake of sodium to <2.3 g="" daily="" o:p="">

Hay Fever

 

Hay fever season can often run from April to September. The tree pollens especially Birch tends to cause problems in April while the grass pollens start to flower from May onwards. You may also be allergic to weed pollens which affect people mainly in June and July. If you do have hayfever don’t forget to start your medication (examples are antihistamine tablets, nasal sprays or eye drops). Most hay fever medication can be bought over the counter. If you are unsure what to take or feel that the medication you are on is not helping please make an appointment to see your doctor.

 

Acne

 

There is new evidence for acne sufferers who use the roll on (topical) antibiotics. Long term use (longer than 12 weeks) of these roll on treatments show that it has led to bacterial resistance. Also interestingly the use of another topical cream called Benzoyl Peroxide at the same time as using the roll on antibiotic helps to reduce the production of resistant bacteria. So the message is don’t use the roll on antibiotic for longer than 12 weeks, see your doctor to add in some Benzoyl Peroxide to use at the same time as the topical antibiotic.  If your acne is still present despite the above make an appointment to see your doctor.
