It's very important that you get your HPB under control, before it gets worse. I had never been diagnosed with HBP until the early 1990's. I went in for a routine check up and when they took my BP is was 220/185. They sent me straight to the hospital!!! I'm still taking 2 different BP meds. One I take 3 times a day and the other once at night. I'm still praying that I can come off of this medication. It's been much too long. Now I know that losing weight helps your BP, but I'm wondering when I can get off of the meds. I've lost 169 lbs. and I'm almost at goal, but the last check up I had my BP started going way up AGAIN!!! I just don't understand. I've asked the drs, but they don't have an answer for me, so I just go along with the flow, and take my meds.
