I'm Laura from Georgia. In the past week, I found out I have "borderline" high blood pressure and the same with my cholesterol. The doctor wants to start me on medication, but I would prefer to lower the numbers naturally. I will try for 3 months and then see where I stand. Try to watch my diet and am ramping up the exercise.

Hi HAPPYDS;

Welcome to our team. You have joined a group where we are all in the same boat more or less. Our goal is to get the BP and Cholesterol under control.

Hi, I just started today (Sunday). With diabetes, High Blood pressure, and high Cholesterol I need all the help I can get, so when my friend told me about Sparkpeople I joined! My last full workup that I have a copy of was in Nov of 2011. At that time my A1C was 6.2%,
BP = 147/87 w pul of 71; Cholestrol was 221mg, LDL Cholesterol = 146,HDL Cholesterol = 57. I do take meds for all three of these, and the Dr. calls these a three month average. Last Fall and Winter I was dealing with depression and didn't know or care what those numbers ment! Now I'm better and want to fix this.
