Hypertension
Hello

I am on Co Approvel daily 12.5/300. I checked my pressure at 14h40 today at the pharmacy as I was not well. The reading was 135/77 and the pulse 127. The Glucose after lunch was 15.4 even though I took NovoRapaid before Lunch. The pharmacist indicated that both the Sugal level and pulse rate was too high.

Please help. Thanks

Dear Raj
The pharmacist is correct, both readings are too high - you may have an underlying infection - have your urine tested, and let your doctor check for signs of underlying sinus or lung infection.
