Thank you for your replies.
answer to your first question.
If his blood pressure stays 140 or more after 1 year of life modification
which includes weight loss, low fat diet, exercise 5 times a week.
then yes he needs a blood pressure medicine.
Your second question.
These red spots are not due to amlodipine
because this medicine can cause red spots
ok, he didnt lose weight is why im thnking he still has high blood pressure.
but they are mostly all over rather than in the feet.
cannot cause? ok the the dots may be what dr said, poor circulation
It can be poor circulation. if there are associated signs of pain, pallor in the feet.
only red spots do not signify poor circulation.
To diagnose poor circulation in the legs
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX him check up with her again on that. which kind of dr is best for this problem ? his dr is a general practicioner
first we have to see symptoms like pain, signs like pallor, ulcers, nail changes
is the best option for his problem.
You have more questions.
I hope chat was helpful.
ill have him find a cardiologist, they can be better suited for longterm treatmen of his HBP right?
because they are expert in this field.
