Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for
I am sorry to hear this. Can you provide a handful of readings over the last week please?
No problem. So these readings do demonstrate a raised blood pressure, however they are not worryingly high.
Are you on medication at all?
Are you still there?
Okay thanks, ***** ***** average over 135/85, so this will need treating, it is however not urgent, if you consistently have readings over 180/110 then this does require urgent management.
It is even more important if you have a raised glucose, therefore I would also get your kidneys checked and a repeat HbA1c to exclude diabetes.
We cannot prescribe via this service sorry, however this needs managing by a doctor who can monitor the response as you will also need blood tests within 4 weeks of starting medication. This is why only very high blood pressures are treated urgently. Waiting 1-2 weeks to manage this would be fine.
I have responded above saying we do not prescribe, have you received this response?
