Re: for my mum.

Is she on medication for it? I would have a talk with her dr. and let him/her know of your concerns. Good luck and God Bless.

Re: for my mum.

Some people suffer high blood pressure and take medications to keep it within normal limits. These medications may have some side effects that vary by the type of product used. But the important thing is that the blood pressure is being monitored consistently and is found to be within a normal range.

Then other people have high blood pressure and although they undestand the possible consequences of the HBP they decide to do nothing due to ignorance or improper advice.

High blood pressure that is under control, although still of concern, is nothing compared to uncontrolled high blood pressure.

Get an electronic blood pressure monitor and get your mom to use it often during the day until she gets a grip on when and why her BP elevates. And make sure she gets to the doctor if she is suffering from consistent HBP.
