High Blood Pressure and Hypertension Answer A28614
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.
I understand that your blood pressure has been fluctuating; however the good news is that your BP without medication is either normal or high normal. In view of the mentioned BP readings without any drugs, I sincerely believe that you may need any drugs at all.
I will suggest avoiding any extra salt in the diet and continuing with the workouts.
Although you may not need any medication presently for BP, however you need a continuous monitoring of the BP which should be done at least twice a week.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
