What causes fluctuation in blood pressure level?
Question: My. B.P. Has varied today between 91/51 to165/85. I am 5months out from CABGx3 with essential hypertension.
Brief Answer: fluctuating bp due to autonomic neuropathy Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXX welcome to XXXXXXX Diabetics can show fluctuating blood pressures due to underlying autonomic neuropathy. You should make sure that you get moderate doses of hypertensive drugs to avoid ups and downs. some drugs like betablockers (which are invariably kept after CABG) also promote this neuropathy related BP fluctuations. Having said that, i want to confess that it is not really a problem to be too much worried about. Hope i am clear. Please feel free to post for any further doubts, and please be specific with the question you want to ask. Have a great day.
