Overcoming Low Blood Pressure In Patients With Ulcers And Nephrotic Syndrome?
Greetings doctor, r nI am zahri, a 24-year-old female student. R n The last 2 weeks I felt my blood pressure drop, because I was often dizzy, tired quickly, and my eyes were dizzy after sitting up. At its peak in the past two days, I felt my heartbeat weaken, and felt tightness as if pressed. But that only happened a few moments. Finally I checked the blood pressure, and got 84/64 results. R nI am also an ulcer sufferer, and last August I got a diagnosis of nephrotic syndrome. R nLooking at this condition, I want to ask, what treatments do I need to do, at least so that conditions can be stable. Because I do have a busy schedule. And this condition is quite disturbing my activities lately. R nAt least, what diet and nutrition do I need to fulfill. R nThanks in advance … r nGreetings …
Hi Zahrina .. Thank you for the question.
Easily tired, dizzy eyes, and dizziness can be caused by several things, for example:
Orthostatic hypotension - usually the patient will feel dizzy, dizzy eyes when standing from a sitting or lying position. This happens because when it will move, a lot of blood will flow to the leg area and reduce blood flow to the heart.
Anemia - lack of hemoglobin in red blood cells that serves to deliver oxygen throughout the body
Low blood sugar / hypoglycemia
While the nephrotic syndrome is caused due to a disruption in the kidney that is in the kidney glomerulus so that the kidney's function to filter is reduced, as a result the protein that should be filtered becomes unfiltered and come out in the urine. This is why one of the diagnoses of nephrotic syndrome is checking the presence or absence of protein in the urine. Other tests that can be done is with a blood test. If nephrotic syndrome is not treated properly it can lead to high blood pressure, anemia, high cholesterol, susceptible to infection, and acute kidney failure.
If your complaint is dizzy and easily tired; disorders of the stomach such as nausea, vomiting, flatulence, also you are still in the treatment of nephrotic syndrome so you should see a doctor of internal medicine to get further tests. And what you can do is:
Eat nutritious foods
Avoid foods that are spicy, sour, fatty, high in salt,
Avoid drinks that contain caffeine and avoid smoking
Inadequate foods that contain high protein
