hi jian
hypertension at this age needs thorough clinical and lab evaluation for coarctation of aorta( if it is elevated only in one arm), renal vessel thrombosis, hormonal disturbances etc..

better meet your doctor and in the meantime reduce your salt intake less than 6 gm per day, reduce saturated fat intake, high dietary fibre etc..

you can know more in JNC 7 guideline ( jump to heading essential hypertension)....

best wishes

Lots of salt and sodium can make your blood pressure higher. But I suggest if this is a lasting problem, you go see your doctor or health department. I am 22 and on blood pressure medication. It's inexpensive and a once a day pill. So lay off the salt and high sodium foods, but if it persists I suggest a health care professional.

I am 64 and quite healthy, not overweight. I do not smoke or drink.My blood pressure was fluctuating. The last to Dr. visits it went up to 145 over 91. My dad had a stroke at 62, TIA s and he was slim, and a non smoker. Anyhow day 2 of 5 mgs of rampiral, my pressure today was even worse 171/98. What is going on? I do not feel terrific on the med. The nurse scared me further and asked if i have a chest pain or jaw pain. I do not. I played tennis and went to the gym. I excercise quite a bit for my age, and do eat healthy. Shouls I request a 24 hr heart monitor, and stress test? I am waiting for blood work. I am worried. Sima

Hello.
I'm male.
I'm 45 years old and I got high pressure blood since 17. I am currently taking 5 drugs to control (not at all) my high pressure blood.
In a recent Renal Angiography was discovered that I have my left kidney hypotrophic with important loss of parenchyma in the middle and lower thirds.
Analyses of plasma renin revealed that is high.

This hypotrophic kidney (left) is working by 37% and 63% right according to a renal scintigraphy.
The recommendation of my doctor(nephrology) is to get me out my hypotrophic kidney to control the high pressure blood and avoid having to take so many drugs.

What is your opinion on this?

A 5'6", 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was >180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet (<2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption (<3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to <140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?

My MPV came back at 10.7 fL, lab reference range of 6.0 to 10.8 fL. Platelet count is 216k/uL. All other CBC components look good. Full CBC is attached. All other tests related to the nephrology work up came back normal. Thoughts?
