Hello doctor,

My father is suffering from high BP from two days. We met a cardiologist and I have the reports. Can you look at them? Our business is not going well. So, he is a lot tensed lately. He had something similar two years ago.

Do you have a question on Tricuspid Regurgitation or High Blood Pressure?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the echo report you provided (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is a normal echocardiography report.

As your father is going through a tough phase and his BP is increased, it is better to give him antihypertension drugs provided by your doctor. (You have not provided drug details).

After controlling BP he may feel better.

Thanks. Hope this helps.

Hello doctor,

Sorry for not updating. But yes my father is taking that normal hypers given to every BP patient. Also, the report says Trace TR with no significant grade. What does that mean? Any other precautions? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Trace TR is a normal finding in echocardiography. There is no need to worry for it.

If possible try to avoid situations which will increase stress and engage him in activities that make him calm and happy.
