What causes persistent high BP levels?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Hi, I consistently show BP of 140 over 90. I ve started monitoring it myself and have gotten between 151 over 105 (middle of the day) and 128 over 70 (first thing in the morning weekend) I m 60 yo, and I m 5 8 approx 215 lb. I ve been going to doctor for regular check ups for 3 yrs., and she has not put me on medication. Is she doing me any favors, or should I seek another opinion?

Hi There

After going through the details provided by You I would like to tell you that a blood pressure of 151/105 mmHg is considered high for which medicine need to be started along with lifestyle modifications

If I would have been your treating doctor I would like to start you on some ACE INHIBITORS or CCB's. It's advisable that you should go for a second opinion and get your meds started.

I wish you good health
