Doctor :   sorry to send the fed back form
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   hello?
User :   oh hi
User :   A year ago my blood pressure was around 121/93 after which my doctor prescribed a low sodium diet and lots of exercise instead of medication because the bp wasn't extremely high. The diet and exercise normalized my bp. Fast forward to the present, because of lack of exercise since then, my bp is now 157/95 and i don't have insurance for a doctor. Should I first proceed again with diet and exercise only or is the bp high enough that i should seek out a doctor for medication immediately? Thank you very much

Doctor :   no

Doctor :   it is consistyently high
Doctor :   than you may need the medications
