I have been on medication for several years now. I retired 2 years ago with the specific intent to become a healthier me. At this point in my journey (and I am far from there), I have fewer aches and pains, exercise regularly, am much more aware of a nutritious way to eat and have lost some weight. I still struggle with all these areas, but have experienced lots of NSVs (non-scale victories). You will too! My Drs are very happy at my progress - I have decreased my BP meds, reduced my A1C (prediabetes) so it in the normal range, and feel "off" if I don't go to the Y every day. Even the Depression I have suffered with for more than 30 years, has begun to improve.
Don't get me wrong, I am not even half way to my weight goal, but I am well on my way to being a healthier me, and there is NO QUESTION in my mind that it is because of SparkPeople! The site, the information, motivation, recipes, videos... and most of all of the rest of us who are in this journey together... and of course you, if you want. (One day at a time.)

See you around and welcome to the team!

There are lots of reasons why it can happening besides age. THe important thing is what you do with it now instead of spending a lot of time wondering why this happened at only 26 years old. But you are in the right place to get the help you need and I know you can do it!

Thanks everyone for the support. Pitter6, I do have history of HBP in my family(along with many other things). I am currently at my highest weight ever in my life, and its no fun. I am starting the DASH diet program next week. Hopefully more regular exercise and better food choices will help my bp.

emoticon age has nothing to do with it sometimes. For we my HBP was age, overweight and lack of exercise. Since I have lost 60 pounds I am now down to 20 mg per day and I am at 120/80. I know young people who have parents who always had HBP, pass that on to their children. You may always have to be on meds, but you can keep it under control.

HI everyone,
I'm 26, and from Wisconsin(Yay Cheese!!). I recently was to my doctor and she has diagnosed me after only seeing her once before, with HBP. She wants me to be on medication... I'm only 26! But I digress, I am here to find out how to reduce my BP without meds
