Assessment

Essential (Primary) Hypertension (ICD10 I10): Given the symptoms and high blood pressure (156/92 mmhg), classified as stage 2. Once the organic cause of hypertension has been ruled out, such as renal, adrenal or thyroid, this diagnosis is confirmed.

Ø Renal artery stenosis(ICD10 I70.1)

Ø Chronic kidney disease(ICD10 I12.9)

Ø Hyperthyroidism (ICD10 E05.90)

Plan

These basic laboratory tests are:

The treatment of choice in this case would be:

· Hydrochlorothiazide tab 25 mg, Initial dose: 25 mg orally once daily. 

 

Ø Non-Pharmacologic treatment:  

· Weight loss

· Healthy diet (DASH dietary pattern): Diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products with reduced content of saturated and trans l fat

· Regular physical activity (Aerobic): 90–150 min/wk

· Tobacco cessation

· Measures to release stress and effective coping mechanisms.
