In this case I woulkd say no since the HTN and diabetes were not presenting symptoms. For a modifying factor it would be more like .. patient with chest pain took an aspirin before coming to the office. or pt with severe pain took tylenol prior to coming in. OR the reverse if the patient had stopped taking a med whichmade the condition worse.
But for a patient to have no issues and just take the meds as directed to me is not a modifiying factor.
