Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

Diagnosis of high blood pressure must be made after recording the blood pressure on 3 consecutive days at the same time of the day and in the same position and arm. The blood pressure must be recorded after the patient is at rest for 30 minutes. If she still has persistently increased blood pressure over 140/ 90 mm Hg then the first remedy is to decrease salt in diet and medications always need to be given only by a doctor after doing basic heart tests.
