Primary hypertension indicate that there is no underlying cause for hypertension, causes of secondary hypertension such as renal hypertension, hyperaldosteronism, Hyperthyroidism, pheochromocytoma, Cushing disease have been ruled out Now for primary hypertension, one should look for factors which cause primary hypertension Example Diabetes - check HbA1c, fasting and post lunch blood sugar Dyslipidemia - check lipid profile Obesity - check body mass index Check for complications related to hypertension 2 D Echo to look for heart failure ECG to look for ischaemic heart disease

Primary hypertension Investigations advised Cbc esr Urine routine Bsl f and pp Sr creatinine and bul Sr cholestrol Tg hdl and lipid profile Urine for homocysteine Ecg and 2decho TFT Xray chest If possible peripheral vascular aging

These lab tests include urinalysis, blood cell count, blood chemistry (potassium, sodium, creatinine, fasting glucose, total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol), and an ECG (electrocardiogram). Additional tests may be recommended based on your condition

CBC, CRET, HBA1C, FBS, PP2BS, homocysteine level, Serum Cortisol level, URIC SCID, renal Doppler study TSH

Lipid profile and renal function test

Always CBC Serum creatinine GFR Colour Doppler renal

Lipid profile

ARB require dose adjustment if urea and creatinine values are alterd. S/E - ARB include hypokalemia also , hence serum electrolyte should be monitered
