I am 17 years old, and I am patient of high blood pressure, is there any way to get ridn from this?

Depends. Hypertension in a 17 year old is not common. Work up should be done to rule out reversible or treatable problems such as hormonal or vascular disease that could lead to high blood pressure; so called secondary hypertension. Low salt diet and weight loss may help. Regular exercise could be helpful too.

Hello my mom is 50 years old, her high blood pressure is 10 and low blood pressure is 6. is that normal?

Check your numbers. BP readings would have to be in the double digits at the least. A "classic" stable BP is 120/80 for example. Read more...
Normal Not = Healthy. Normal only means Average. The numbers entered are not compatible with life. Be aware that most BP readings (especially all the digital gauges) are quite inaccurate & far less reliable than humans; just estimations; only represent a single heart beat for each number; from different heart beats. BP is hidden internal behavior which we adjust constantly, moment by moment. Read values yourself! Read more...

59 year old male I take ramipril 10mg per day for high blood pressure & my blood pressure is still high 170/80 what do you recommend please?

Go see your doctor. Looks like you're already taking Diltiazem in addition to your ramipril. If your blood pressure is still high after 2 medications, ask about adding hctz, (hydrochlorothiazide) a weak diuretic. Exercise is useful as is eating a low salt, high potassium/magnesium diet.

BP still elevated. Your blood pressure is terribly elevated. You are ramipril (r) and ditiazem (d), both of which are not being given to you at maximum doses. Call your physician (p) and see if you can go to 20 mg of r and 360 mg of d daily. If that does not control your bp, your p may have to increase the number of BP meds you are taking. If your BP is still > 140 on 4 meds, consider secondary causes of hbp. Read more...

No, but..... There isn't a good alternative "natural" remedy, but there are many great alternatives to tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone). Tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone) contains chlorthalidone, which is a good BP med for most people. Tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone) also contains atenolol which is a terrible BP med.

I'm 17 year old with high blood pressure. A month back, it went as high as 172/98 and a few days back, it was 160/92. What measures should I take?

See your doctor. Those readings are certainly too high. You should see your doctor to be evaluated. There are different reasons your blood pressure might be high, and your doctor can help figure out what can be done to help correct the problem, if correctable. If you just have "Essential Hypertension", you would discuss lifestyle changes to lower your blood pressure and maybe be put on medicine. See your doc. Read more...
See MD, get treated. This could be very serious. At your age, if your BP is consistently at these levels and not treated, probably you will have a short life. Your profile says you're in India, and medical costs may be important. But you must do what you can to have both a properdiagnostic evaluation and treatment. If you are obese, slim down. Otherwise there is no lifestyle change that will solve the problem. Read more...
See a nephrologist. You need a proper workup. At the age of 17, you should not have hypertension, and it would not be considered essential. There are many structural or genetic causes that need to be investigated. A nephrologist is an expert in complicated cases of hypertension, and I strongly recommend seeking one out. This is not a lifestyle problem.You should get this evaluated sooner rather than later. Good luck. Read more...
