One last hypertension question!


Resident Iconoclast
Hi Doc,

Apologies for bothering you again about this, but I just want to make sure I've got everything in order before renewing my medical next month.

I know that hypertension no longer requires special issuance certification, as it now falls under the CACI guidelines. My final question is this; one of the medications I take for my hypertension is a diuretic (triamterene+hydrochlorothiazide).

Do I still need to do the serum potassium blood test, and bring the results to the AME for recertification, or is this not necessary under the new guidelines?

Thanks so much once again!
