Thank you very much Dr. Shanthi. Follow up question - During the examination Dr./Physiciaan noted my BP reading as 150/90 and mentioned that it is slightly on higher side but not to worry much. Is this due to fever/cold cough? Is there any thing I should be worried and start taking necessary action to keep the BP under control -may be work-life balance, diet and excercise? can you please suggest remedy?

Brief Answer: repeated recordings of BP is required Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Your BP reading at 150/90 is above the normal. You need repeated recordings of the same. If your reading still remains at the same, when taken at 3 different intervals, then you will need further evaluation. Also, I consider your age at 43 yrs for this. I would recommend that you record your blood pressure on three different occasions, and check if it still the same. If yes, then you must go for lifestyle changes for initial 3 months, and then medications, if required. All the three- work-life balance, diet and exercise are important to regulate the blood pressure. Hence, make sure that all are in right direction. You may start walking regularly for a better health. It is also better to get a basic cardiac and lipid profile work up done, if not done earlier. Hope this helps you. Regards,
