Let me brief you.
Hypertension is a chronic medical condition which can be kept under control with medications and life style.
Eritel H contents 2 antihypertensive drugs in it.
Since despite 2 medications, the BP fluctuates above normal, I think this will not be the right time to stop medications.
I would suggest you to continue medications for some more time.
yes i understand
Take less salt diet.
Exercise with an aim to reduce weight.
is walking good ?
Once your blood pressure remains constantly in the lower limits, your medications can be tapered gradually.
cause thats the only exercise I enjoy
Brisk walking in a fresh environment for 30 - 45 minutes for 5 days a week is good enough to reduce weight and keep your pressures under control.
thanks so much Docter XXXXXXX
I will walk everyday :)
