Customer Question
My husband has never...

My husband has never suffered with high blood pressure until last week. He was admitted to the hospital last Wed. with a bp of 212/1something. Im sorry I don't remember the exact number. He was extremely dizzy and nauseated. They did get his pressure down and released him Thurs. He just told me he wasn't feeling well and I took his bp it was 175/104. He is taking toprlol ans triamterene. He has had both of his meds today. He is also diabetic. Is there something we can do here at home?

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

They went over him pretty good in the hospital and he's not sure about the high bp in family. His mother had several strokes, but he can't say for sure if it was due to high bp.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just that he is diabetic and using insulin.
