Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Sorry to hear about your husband's health
I have reviewed your husband's current medications detail. Currently he is on two drugs and it seems that the diastolic blood pressure is just slightly on the upper limit of normal. Now what could be done to keep it within normal limits is that he can ask his doctor to add a diuretic to his current medications. That will help in lowering the diastolic blood pressure further. In the mean while if the blood pressure has underwent a recent rise it would be wise if he can have kidney functions and also an echocardiogram to check if the blood pressure has not effected the kidneys.If the blood pressure stays lower than 90mm diastolic then there is nothing to worry about.But if is above 90 mm diastolic or 140 mm Hg systolic a diuretic should be added
Feel free to ask if any more question
