Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  You need not change any medicines now. His body has become accustomed to this high level. Just ask him to restrict his dietary salt intake and that would be enough. Ask him not to miss any medicines. Also his sugars are also fine.  Best regards.  Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
