Maybe just infection chasing up the BP. NO doubt he'll check again when you see him again. Go from there once you see him next week

If you lose weight it will help your blood pressure. Exercise is another biggie.

Relax and check after you are healthier. If it is still high consider blood pressure medicine. The only natural cure I have had was finding out why I had white coat syndrome. Then I explained it to my doctor and my blood pressure has been lower when I go to the doctor.

Could be the white coat problem but it was probably a combination of the actual infection and your worry about your illness and maybe a little of white coat thrown in. Good Luck on your next visit.

Hi - visited the doctor three days ago with a chest infection and he took my blood pressure and it was 180 / 120. It shocked me and I want to do something naturally to reduce it and avoid taking medication. I am 56, 172 lbs and active. I know I could loose more weight but I have been a thrice-weekly gym goer for 2 years and swim six days out of 7 and do aqua aerobics on two days. All I undertake at a pretty intense level and have an athletic shape with the weight stuck around the dreaded tummy.
I eat home cooked food mostly, probably a bit heavy on cream and butter, but I love cooking. Since Monday's shock have bought a home blood pressure monitor and it is showing readings 152/94 yesterday to 144/83 and 125/82 today.
Did I have a serious white coat event on Monday or is there something more going on? I will take medication if necessary but I want to see how I can control things naturally. Have really cut down on salt since Monday evening, started to eat oatmeal (ugh) and cut out butter / cream. I am back with the doctor next week and want to show things are improved.
Thank you in advance.
