The PCP, Cardiologist and the Nephrologist that I have seen do not know what to do. My heart and kidneys are fine. Can you suggest another type of doctor that may be of help?

Brief Answer:
Try endocrinologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear Ms. XXXXXX,

Thank you for writing back to me.

Relax, after correction of renal arterial stenosis it does take quite some time for the blood pressure to return to normal. Till such time please do continue to take your blood pressure medicines.

Continue to do your aerobics and other exercises, reduce slat intake, be stress free, go out and have fun, if you have job that is causing stress and thus increasing the blood pressure, I would suggest you take it easy and don't let your work spoil your health.

In the meanwhile you can consider changing your cardiologist, a change of medicines do help reduce the blood pressure. You can consult an endocrinologist to see if any of the vasopressor hormones are elevated, at times, along with a stenosed renal artery there can be associated hyperactivity of the adrenal gland.

Please write back to me with your detailed medical history so that I can point you the right direction. (Any childhood illnesses, menstrual history, any other cardiac problem, any lung disorder and the details about these if you have any).

Hope this information is of help to you.

Wishing you good health.

Warm regards,
Dr. Yogesh. D
