Welcome to HCM

High Blood Pressure is easily detectable and treatable Life style disease.

Your Blood pressure is 160/100 is Grade 2 Hypertension and even 150/90 is high.

Certain Lefestyle modifications like Salt Restriction regular walking,avoiding, smoking and alcoholand reduction of weight can bring bP to lower level but if it is still high you have to take regular medicines to keep BP under check.

Please consult a Physician and a detail examination to rule out any Neurological problem, get routine investigation like ECG, and Ultrasonography of kidney.

Please take antihypertensive medicines regularly with periodic checkups.

Take care of Your health

Good Luck
