Hi, my mother has High BP. It was 140/90 for the past few years.. But for the last one month it has gone up to (150-160)/(100-110). She is 49 years old. She is using Concor 2.5mg, Ln block 10 (twice a day) and Aldactone 25 mg. But still the BP is at the same level. She even consulted a cardiologist but everything is normal. Please suggest what can be done to reduce the BP. Can someone suggest any dietary changes or any medications that can reduce the BP?

Hello, Srao! How is your mother doing?

Some people are sodium sensitive, according to the NIH, so she might do better if she lowers her salt intake as much as possible. Eating healthy low fat foods can also help, so can exercising.

She can also speak to her doctor about raising the dosage of her medications, or trying different ones.

What time of day is she checking it? That can also make a difference, some people's levels may fluctuate after they eat, when they first wake up and become active, after exercising and etc.
