Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestion below... Detailed Answer: Hi, Your mother has been diagnosed with hypertension. I'd suggest to keep her blood pressure <140/90. I'd advise: - start a therapy with anti hypertensive drugs and to take them regularly. - must do regular monitoring of BP and thyroid hormones. - avoid/limit fatty, fried or salty foods and drinks. - keep in touch with cardiologist, endocrinologist. If the problem persist (after proper treatment for BP and Thyroid hormones) consult a neurologist. All the best to your mom and you! Dr.Benard
