I am 50 years old, suffering from hypertension since an early age. My usual BP is around 135/92, after medication and on certain days 145/96. Currently I am in azrtric 80, ctd 12. 5 mg, moxovas 0.3 mg (twice) and novostat CV 10. After taking these medicines my weight has been gradually increasing. It's around 89 kg. I take regular walks. My query is whether weight gain is because of any of the above-mentioned medicines? And if so please suggest some diet and exercise regime. P.s:My doctor has suggested not to undertake weight training exercises.

BP medicines ok. CV10 may not be beneficial. To reduce weight stop sugar jaggery and reduce starchy foods, take balanced diet, not restricted diet. Best wishes.
