Hi well come to HCM.
Without knowing your age its difficult to stamp you as hyper tensive. At any age
BP more than 145/90 is hyper tension. So if you are very young like 20 to 25 you
should observe your BP. But if you are around 40 you should not even observe your
BP.Of course now days remmendations are there to maintain BP on lower side of HBP
pt around 120/80. But it does not mean you should take medicine if you are not on
foe it at this BP. This could be stress induced, or disturbances in life. Need not take
any medicine simply healthy life style and little salt restriction will help you. Thanks

sir i am 38 yrs old. I measured my BP in the morning and it is 108 (min) over 68 (min) to 117 (max) over 72 (max) and the average reading was 112/74. In the evening the average reading was 125 over 84. All the readings are by my home monitor (good imported machine from Accure). But when ever I visit my doctor the first reading is 140 over 100 and she take a second reading after 5 mins. it is 130 over 90. She has prescribed me 20 mg Telmikind to be taken in night. I am confused and worried for last 1 year. I have stopped all bad habits like drinks, cigarette. Not eating meat, chicken but taking fish twice a week. not taking any sugary products like cold drinks. Restricted taking salt. Doing 45 mins cycling daily (stationary at home) and i have lost 8-10 Kg in last one year. I am nearly 6 feet and my weight is 86 Kg. Done all tests and it is O.K. including, ecg, echo and TMT.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
