Hello
Your BP is very high and you are obese by about 35kg according to your height (BMI 35 ). You need to :
1 Reduce your wt to about70 Kg
2 Reduce salt intake to the minimum.
3 perform regular exercises
4 Take drugs (e.g. Amilodipine + Losartan potassium + low dose Aspirin )
5 Measure your BP regularly.
I do'nt want to scare you, but I think in addition to the above measures
you need to see a doctor IMMEDIATELY.
Thanks

Hi, Are you having a family history of Hypertension?
Is your blood pressure always remains high?
Thorough investigations are necessary.
Apart from the medicine for hypertension, you must restrict your diet, do lot of exercise, daily walking at least 5 kms.
Eat more of green vegetables, salads without salt. Restrict salt, oils, ghee. butter, cheese and fast foods.
Do relaxation exercises also.
All these measures will help you a lot.
It will also decrease the dose of antihypertensive medicine.

Hello, Welcome to healthcaremagic forum.
You seem to have HTN. but is it always ur BP is raised?
at present if u can, then i would suggest you to take homoeopathic medicine Rauwolfia serpentina tincture (Q) 8-10 drops in 1/2 glass of water to immediately get your BP to normal. then get ur BP monitored for a week daily at fixed time and note it down to get a fair idea of ur regular BP value.
also u should take a salt restricted diet with no added salt in rice or salad or fruits or juices. instead opt for kala namak in fruits or buttermilk as it is high in potassium.
A light exercise and yoga and meditation under an expert guidance will surely help u maintain ur BP. u must consult a physician nearby for your BP if it is constantly high who will then carry out few investigations (if necessary) and give the adquate medication. for a detailed diet for high BP, contact: Dr. Rooma Ramnani, rhramnani@hotmail.com.
take care.

Dr. Rooma Ramnani.

Hi, I think I have high BP. When I measure at home it is normally 125/85. I have tried various instruments and most readings are consistent. However when I go to a doctor the readings shoot up to 110/85-90. I don t know if this is white coat hypertension..how can one tell? Also when I take BP medicine , very small dose , 25mg of atenolol, I somehow feel better and my heart beat slows from 75-80 to 65-70. Is it dangerous to take BP medicine without having BP?

I am 39 years old and recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure (BP daily average ~ 140/100). I got my blood/urine work done and following were the alarming indicators: 1) Serum Creatinine - 1.35 and 1.54 mg/dl (from 2 tests, one week apart) 2) eGFR (non african) - 66 and 56 (from 2 tests, one week apart) My Doctor suggested to have another blood work done in a week to check if these level return to normal, otherwise she would recommend to see Nephrologist.. Can someone tell me how bad these numbers are from Kidney function point of view? Thanks.
