Hi, I am not exactly new to Spark People. I've been using the site for about 2 months. I am 37, married and have two daughters, age 17 and 13. We turned to a low glycemic diet when my 17 year-old's blood pressure dramatically rose to 170/94. I suspected the root cause was birth control pills which she takes for PCOS, but I had to wait 3 1/2 weeks to see a cardiologist to confirm there was nothing wrong with her heart.

Hi, I am not exactly new to Spark People. I've been using the site for about 2 months. I am 37, married and have two daughters, age 17 and 13. We turned to a low glycemic diet when my 17 year-old's blood pressure dramatically rose to 170/94. I suspected the root cause was birth control pills which she takes for PCOS, but I had to wait 3 1/2 weeks to see a cardiologist to confirm there was nothing wrong with her heart. In the meantime, I took matters into my own hands by completely revamping what we were eating. Along with her activities, such as playing field hockey, I had high hopes of being able to bring the blood pressure down. By the time my daughter say the cardiologist, her blood pressure had dropped to 130/70, and she had already lost 15 lbs. I am pleased to say the visit to the cardiologist produced the diagnosis of a perfectly normal function heart and "estrogen induced" hypertension. To date, I have lost 23 lbs, and my daughter weighs in again tomorrow. I really love the amount of information and recipes available on this website!
