Hi I have had severe hypertension for a number of years now, my GP cannot control it. He reffered me to a Cardiologist and I had a echocardiogram, the results showed my heart wall is thicker than it should be.
Hypertension Me : Hi I have had severe... - High Blood Pressu...
You asked what I class as severe, if your blood pressure is constantly above 200 Systolic Pressure that is classsed as an Hypertensive crisis. My blood pressure is constantly above this, my GP has tried different medication which is not working. I have been referred to a specialist. They did a echocardiogram which showed I have an enlarged heart, I am awaiting the results of a genetic blood test regarding my heart.
Apologies for the delay in replying, I've just come out of hospital after suffering a major heart attack. My diet is something I have never watched, I eat alot of junk food and frozen meals.
Apologies for the delay in replying. My GP has reffered me to a Cardiologist, I wore a 24hr BP monitor, which showed an average BP of 217/163 and a heart rythmn of 139. I then had an echocardiogram done which showed that I have an enlarged heart. I am awaiting for another appointment with the Cardiologist.
