Women who are over 60 have a greater chance of developing high blood pressure. At 60 I was on the high end of normal, but with good diet and an exercise program have managed to pull it back. I so hope this helps.

I do know that many people have reduced or eliminated the need for meds by eating right and exercising! My father being one. Now that he has gone back to poor eating habits he is back on meds though. emoticon
