MMI Scenario 27
Mr Williams is a 58-year-old Caucasian man and he has recently had a medical check-up at his GP clinic. His blood pressure was 158/96 and BMI is 28kg/m2. When seeing him for a review, he tells you that he drinks five units of alcohol daily, doesn’t exercise much and eats out a lot due to the nature of his work. His ambulatory blood pressure results show that on average the daytime readings are 164/84 mmHg and night-time readings are 150/79 mmHg. He has a CVD risk of 21% (calculated from QRISK-3). Explain the key points that you would want to discuss with this patient.
