The second point is to monitor the blood and do not forget to take a second test two weeks after discharge. Another important condition is not to overcool, not to freeze," the specialist advised ...

He also added that you should not overload the body with physical activity. It is also necessary to control blood pressure, reduce the amount of fatty6 spicy, salty food consumed and give up alcohol for at least a month.
