Hypertension Management at Tri-County Medical Clinic
The exam includes a review of family and medical history, review of medications, as well as the patient’s lifestyle. If the levels are elevated it is recommended for the patient to monitor and record their blood pressure at home twice daily for seven consecutive days. If the levels continue to be high at the follow-up visit, our physicians design and discuss a treatment plan with the goal of getting the blood pressure under control. Depending on the severity of the hypertension and the patient’s individual risk factors involved, the treatment plan might start with behavioral and lifestyle modifications. The behavioral and lifestyle modifications alone can result in a significant improvement or even completely normalize the blood levels. However, if the lifestyle modifications alone are not sufficient to control the elevated blood pressure levels, prescription medication intervention will be the next step.
