Q: My BP reading is always around 145/93 or 95. I am 41 years old and taking Ayurvedic Tablets for the BP. Kindly advice me what tests I should do and what precautions to take.
A: Ayurvedic tablets are a form of alternative or complementary medicine. (Click here for more information on Ayurvedic medicine.) I am not sure what your pills contain. However, your blood pressure is not in control on these tablets. I suggest you make an appointment to see your doctor. A standard evaluation for high blood pressure would include blood and urine tests.
