Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : My heart rate was 118 and my blood pressure was 170 over 68?

Is this bad
The last time i went to the doc, It was 190 over something. When my heart rate was 118 i was just sitting down. What would be considered high blood pressure that needs to be regulated?

Answer by Mike
damn, were you smoking crack?

Answer by formerly_bob
Blood pressure of 170 over 68 is excellent. A pulse rate of 118 is higher than the average resting rate, but it is normal for someone who just stopped exercising, or they are overheated or experiencing anxiety, or if they had a lot of caffeine.

Answer by Leighann J
120 over 80 is norm, my heart rate is always high like yours. I was having alot of chest pain and headaches and overall feeling weak/tired and it was because my blood pressure was about like yours i started taking like 10 mg of benicar a day and been feeling alot better now.

Answer by gangadharan nair
You have got tachycardia and isolated systolic hypertension (Stage 2 hypertension).
Normal pulse rate of a resting person is 60-100 beats per minute (bpm). Pulse rate exceeding 100 bpm is termed as tachycardia.
Isolated systolic hypertension, however, is defined as a systolic pressure that is above 140 mm Hg with a diastolic pressure that still is below 90.
Your Bp reading is 170/68 mmHg. Pulse pressure is 170–68 = 102 mmHg. Optimum pulse pressure is 40 mmHg. Pulse pressure exceeding 60 mmHg needs to be investigated by a cardiologist. (A strong predictor of heart problems)
Please check the function of your kidney (for microalbuminuria, creatinine, blood urea nitrogen), heart (for left ventricular enlargement/hypertrophy) and retina (for hypertensive retinopathy).
Adopt DASH diet (The Mediterranean diet). Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, which includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish, vegetables, poultry, and egg whites. Use monounsaturated oils such as olive, peanut, and canola oils or polyunsaturated oils such as corn, safflower, soy, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean oils. Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.
Consult a cardiologist.

Hope the figures below alleys any worries you may have
Best regards
Normal blood pressure range is 120-130 over 80-85
Normal systolic range is 130-140 over 85-90
Mild hypertension range is 140-160 over 90-100
Moderate hypertension range is 160-180 over 100-110
Severe hypertension ranges are above 180 over 110 and above

Heart rate is variable according to exertion, fear, worry, ect.

Answer by Bud
Both your blood pressure and heart rate are definitely too high. A normal resting blood pressure should be in the vicinity of 120/80 and heart rate 60 to 80 beats/minute. 130 to 139 systolic is borderline high blood pressure. At that point diet and exercise alone can bring it down to normal. If you are maintaining a resting blood pressure above 140 systolic, medication is needed in addition to better nutrition and exercise. Above 170 it becomes dangerous and needs immediate attention. If it is in the vicinity of 200 it becomes a medical emergency. While you may not feel any symptoms with a blood pressure close to 200 systolic, (most people would) you are in danger of a stroke or heart attack. It is interesting that your diastolic (lower number) pressure is normal. This is the pressure in your arteries between heart beats. This would tend to indicate that you do not have cholesterol build up or narrowed arteries. Note that one single reading of heart rate or blood pressure does not necessarily indicate your normal resting values. Several readings taken throughout the day and averaged would give you a much better indication. These readings should be taken when you have been seated, at rest for at least 10 minutes and not anxious or excited. I am sure when the doctor took your blood pressure and saw that 190 reading he must have prescribed medication.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How much does laser surgery cost?

I’m going to college in Los Angeles this fall and I’d like to give modeling a shot. I’m 5’10 130llbs and I have stretch marks from weight loss. The insides of my thighs are also dark and I have scars on my shoulders. How much would all of this cost to be removed? I turn 18 this fall.

Answer by Sur La Mer
Get FREE consultation or ask for a brochure from the surgeon doing your laser.

All OF THOSE you mentioned can easily be airbrushed.

People Magazine Red Carpet Style issue, page 75, Sienna Miller, showing ‘beard’ blonde hair, even with makeup.

2 page spread of the Acqua di Gioia model, by Giorgio Armani, she’s hairy blonde EVERYWHERE, plus she’s got very dry, flaky skin. She was draped with palm leaves! Her eyebrows are brown, her hair long wavy wet dark brown, blue or green eyes, found in InStyle, Glamour and Vogue magazines. The only parts of her body that was airbrushed: shoulders, knee, face.

Take a look @ Joan Rivers, BEFORE & AFTER. She’s had so many surgeries done.

But if you want one done, you’ll want another in other parts of your body, it’s just the beginning of others to come. Another example: Heidi Montag had 10 done in one day. March, 2012, now she can’t find a job! Google her.

Google Celebrities bad surgery gone bad. About 83,200,000 results (0.19 seconds).

They have millions more money than you, and they surely can afford to spend millions of dollars ON BETTER surgeon, so take my advice seriously, because everyone can make mistakes, no one’s perfect!

You can get them done in . . . . or Haiti, which is cheaper by far, but you’ll end up back in Hollywood to get the procedure corrected.

We all have flaws. Even celebrities making tons of dollars a day! “I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.”
~ Lady Gaga, referring to her cheek prosthetics, which she no longer wears.

But do you want to be a clone, like all these 20 Korean Beauty Pageant contestants?
Before: http://www.ibtimes.com/miss-korea-2013-contestants-they-all-look-alike-because-makeup-not-plastic-surgery-1229161#
After: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2314647/Has-plastic-surgery-20-Korean-beauty-pageant-contestants-look-Pictures-contest-hopefuls-goes-viral.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490
The girls look remarkably alike isn’t overzealous plastic surgery, but the handiwork of very skilled, if not very creative, makeup artists. Whether these women still had something done on their faces isn’t known, but at least without heavy makeup, it isn’t as difficult as before to tell them apart.

Positive attitude makes people BEAUTIFUL, It’s because they see other parts of the world suffering more than them. If it’s about your tummy, jaw, breasts, face etc. today, what will you find about yourself that’s negative tomorrow.
I thought I was ugly, because I never dated, but I treat people with respect, and I inspire them, making their negatives into a positive. Coming from Asia, I’ve been to where people only eat rice all day & nothing else, but that never bother me, so I’ve been there, I can relate, but people who has MORE than us, can’t seem to appreciate how lucky they are.

“People always shoot down what they don’t understand… The only way to achieve beauty is to feel it from inside without breaking it down into individual physical attributes.” Wait, did I just quote Miley Cyrus?

It’s almost impossible to look as perfect as some of us deem celebrities look in photos. Heck, some of the celebrities don’t even look like their own images thanks to heavy photoshopping. Some of it is getting a little ridiculous and you have to think about the young, impressionable children who could happen upon these pictures. To help give you some sense of reality, we offer 14 of the most airbrushed celebrity pics…

Things to do in New Orleans:

For general info:

www.frenchquarter.com

New Orleans hosts many festivals and celebrations throughout the year:

www.nola.com/festivals

There are many tours offered and examples are:

www.graylineneworleans.com
www.hauntedhistorytours.com
http://www.saveourcemeteries.org/tours/index.htm

The Saint Charles Streetcar is the oldest continuously operating street railway in the world and is a “tourist attraction” in its own right. It is part of the public transit system, as are the Canal Street and Riverfront streetcar lines: www.norta.com

There is always music, but the bands change: Go to www.bestofneworleans.com and click on Music then Listings or to www.offbeat.com and click on Listings, then Music.

Music clubs often advertise “No Cover”, meaning there is no charge for entering. However, clubs with “No Cover” often require that customers buy a beverage each for every “set” of music (which can be every 20 minutes) so KNOW THE PRICE before you sit down. Clubs do that because some people will sit in the club all evening drinking nothing (clubs only make money from the drinks they sell – not from the music). It is also a good idea to pay for each round of drinks (in clubs on Bourbon Street) as it is delivered so there can’t be any confusion at the end of the evening.

An incomplete guide to bars & clubs:

www.neworleanscheapdrinks.com
http://www.nola.com/bar-guide/

Some famous drinks are VERY potent compared with regular cocktails that have only 1 to 1 ½ ounces of alcohol. For example, a Hurricane is basically 3 or 4 ounces of rum in something like red Kool-Aid, and a Hand Grenade has at least 4 ½ ounces of Everclear + rum + vodka mixed with melon liquor. They don’t necessarily taste like an alcoholic beverage and it is easy to over-indulge.

Wander around the French Quarter, enjoy the architecture, watch the street entertainers (do tip), and visit some of the historic buildings that have been turned into museums (go to www.frenchquarter.com and click on Historic Attractions).

Cafe du Monde is in the French Quarter and you shouldn’t miss having cafe au lait & beignets (www.cafedumonde.com). Another great coffee shop is the Croissant d’Or (at 617 Ursulines Street), which is open from 7:00am to 2:00pm and has food in addition to pastry.

Visit the Bottom of the Cup tea Room for a reading: http://www.bottomofthecup.com/

The Palm Court restaurant is very nice, has moderate prices, and offers live jazz starting at 8:00pm: 1204 Decatur Street, (504) 525-0200. www.palmcourtjazzcafe.com

Maximo’s Italian Grill has great food and atmosphere: 1117 Decatur Street in the French Quarter, (504) 586-8883. www.maximosgrill.com

Cafe Degas is a very French restaurant near City Park at 3127 Esplanade – which is not within walking distance of downtown (5 to 10 minutes by taxi). They are closed on Mondays & Tuesdays (504) 945-5635). www.cafedegas.com

The Napoleon House restaurant is at 500 Chartres Street in the FQ, and has a menu of great local dishes: www.napoleonhouse.com

Buffa’s is a neighborhood restaurant at 1001 Esplanade Avenue that is open 27/7 and has live entertainment: www.buffasrestaurant.com

www.nobadance.com
www.neworleansopera.org

www.lepetittheatre.com

There is a free ferry across the Mississippi at the “foot” of Canal Street. It is a short trip but like a harbor cruise w/o a guide: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/canal_street_ferry

The Aquarium, Audubon Zoo, and the new Insectarium are world-class attractions (www.auduboninstitute.org) and you should see them if you can. The Zoo is several miles from downtown. You can drive to the Zoo (which has free parking) or take public transit from the French Quarter.

I had also seen a fantastic amount of water, coming in shortly thereafter. I therefore notified the appropriate government authorities to warn them.
17 Hours after the quake, Hurricane Irene made landfall less than 300 miles from the epicenter of the Earthquake.
Damage estimates from this hurricane, throughout the United States were near $19.6 billion dollars, which made it the 5th costliness hurricane in United States history
The coastlines were evacuated and lives were saved because of this prediction and appropriate warnings.
