Thanks for the query.

I have gone through your mail. Your BP recordings seem to be showing significant variations.

My feeling is that the variations are secondary to anxiety.

My advise is to stop getting your BP checked on a daily basis.

Get it checked once in 2 weeks and rest of the time forget about it.

If you still find variations and majority of the values are in the higher range we will consider the requirement of anti hypertensives.

You need to follow life style modifications in terms of regular exercises, have a salt restricted diet and try out some stress relieving programs.

You can keep a watch over the next 2 to 3 months and take a call about what we need to do.
I hope i have answered your query. I will be available for follow up .

With regards,

Dr. A. Gopi
