Patient Comments: High Blood Pressure - Readings

Is your blood pressure reading high, low, or normal?

Comment from: Dmauro43, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: May 21

I have an insulin pump and I have high blood pressure. At one point in time even with medications my blood pressure was still out of control, 180/100. I changed doctor and he changed my medicines, now my pressure is 115/70. I am on carvedilol and lisinopril HCTZ. Sometimes you may need to change doctors, this may work for some but not for everyone. There is hope out there.
