Hello,

It's not wise to miss the tablets because Your BP may rise and may create lots of problem. So better not to forget or you can buy a strip from local shop. You should get your BP checked in such instances as increased BP is asymptomatic but dangerous.

Anyway You should have a healthy lifestyle like avoiding fatty, oily and high calorie diet. Have low salt diet and monitor blood pressure regularly thrice a day for one week then once or twice a week. Regular exercises like brisk walking, jogging according your capacity at least 30 min a day and 5 days a week. Eat lots of green leafy vegetables, fruits, fish once or twice a week, avoid meat. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. There shouldn't abdominal fat deposition or obesity. Get your lipid profile and sugars tested once.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr Sagar Makode
