>>Do you have any diet/nutritional ideas to help with this?

There are dietary habits that could effect sleep (ie, caffeine, overeating, GERD, etc) however, she should be properly evaluated. As in the other post, it is important for people with health problems to get properly evaluated and this is not the forum for it.

>>I should mention she did have bleeding stroke recently and also has isolated systolic hypertension. She already is on a low salt diet and take Lisinopril to control her blood pressure. She eats very little meat and does eat vegetables and fruits for the majority of her diet. She does consume white rice/brown rice since she is asian.

It is apparent by her symptoms that she has lots of room for improvement in her current diet and lifestyle.

>By the way, what do you think about eating egg whites or the entire egg as part of a diet for someone with coronary artery disease?

If someone was to consume eggs, they should not consume the yolk, which is where all the cholesterol is. Eggs, or egg whites are not required in a optimally healthy diet.

Best Wishes
