Needs basic blood tests

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma’am

After going through the medical details I understand your concern for your husband and I would like to tell you that considering the age of your husband and his medical history few tests will be required to rule out

1. Any sort of infection specially chest infection and Urinary Tract Infection

2. Blood electrolyte imbalance due to anti hypertensive medicines

Tests Required are :

1. Complete Blood Count

2. Serum Electrolytes

3. Chest C-ray

4. Urine routine

5. ECG

So it’s advisable to personally consult a physician , discuss and get these tests done.

I hope this information will answer your query and will guide you properly.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
