In about 10% of people, high blood pressure is caused by another disease (this is called secondary hypertension). In such cases, when the root cause is treated, blood pressure usually returns to normal. These causes of secondary hypertension include the following conditions:
As Pika states you should have your mom see the doctor to again evaluate other possible causes that could include: •Chronic kidney disease •Tumors or other diseases of the adrenal gland •Coarctation of the aorta - A narrowing of the aorta that you are born with that can cause high blood pressure in your arms. •Thyroid dysfunction.
In the other 90% of cases, the cause of high blood pressure is not known (referred to as primary hypertension). Although the specific cause is unknown, certain factors are recognized as contributing to high blood pressure and may require different medication..
thank you so much for helping me...
God Bless you
Go back to the doctor. Let him take the BP again and see there's any improvement or not. If there's no improvement, he'll prescribe another type of medication. They're so many med (including beta-blocker) to lower the BP in the market.
May be her sickness is not related to high blood pressure. You can talk to the GP or the doc who prescript the medication. If your mum hasn't had a specialist yet, your GP properly will refer her to one. If you're not happy about his idea and treatment, you always can find a second or even third opinion.
I saw from other forum, relax... listening to the soft music also can help to lower the blood pressure. My mum took the herb that she planted also help a lot. The worse point of using herbs at home is : don't know how much to take at first. Later on, she adjusted that will bring her to the right dosage. It takes time.
I hope your mum will receive the proper treatment and get well soon.
if anyone know about it then plz tell me...my mom is very sick
