What are the general symptoms of cholesterol and blood pressure and diabetes?

Q. I mean to ask how do we find out if one is suffering from cholesterol, diabetes and blood pressure without checking blood samples?

A. high blood pressure tends to give you violent headaches. diabetes makes you thirsty and you drink large ammounts of fluid, you can also have swelling of the hands and feet, itchy skin and so on, here in the united states many drug stores have free to use blood pressure meters.

How do I get my cholesterol and triglycerides down?
Q. I am 42 yrs old and my heart doctors nurse called me the other day to tell me to start taking a daily fish oil capsule and he would re check my lipid profile in 3 months. It all sounds kinda vague to me. I do not have a clue how to read the fat/polyunsaturated/cholesterol part of a food label. I would appreciate suggestions.
I am not stupid, but never had to think about this kind of stuff before.

A. Aren't you on any choloresterol medication?
That will decrease the numbers somewhat..... geez, I'm on vytorin; it does help some, but you have to eat properly and exercise or so my doctor says......checking food labels is not that'll be surprised as to what is actually in your products.

Hope this website will be helpful...
