A 60-year-old male asked:
Just visited another dr. and he suggested hyzaar (losartan and hydrocholorthiazide) 100/25 instead of current med lisinopril 20/12.5 have lvh of .1 found during echo.bp was 117/72 why?

BP: BP of 117/72 is good whether because of the meds or other. Not enough information here re the echo or LVH. You should discuss with your doctor and ask all your questions answered. There are many reasons for LVH if present, BP is just one of them. Don't know what you mean by LVH of .1
