Welcome to the team! I think you will find lots of support on this site. I also started cholesterol meds at a young age. My levels were over 400 and my doctor asked me how long I wanted to live. I did not get off of meds completely, however I am on the lowest dose possible and numbers have been good now for several years. Sparkpeople helps keep me on track. I did manage to get off of BP medicine. Follow doctors advice and get yourself some Sparkbuddies. There are lots of us available. Good luck!
Well high blood pressure is something to watch and it seems to be close in your family. You have discovered it and all you have to do is now control it. So here is to good health...and a better tomorrow.
I have recently been prescribed medicine for high blood pressure and cholesterol. I'm only 39 yrs old. I have a family history full of high bp, not sure about cholesterol. I want to get healthy so I can get off this medicine. The fact that I lost my parents this yr to cancer(they were 62 and 64 yrs old!), my stepmom to a heart attack(55yrs old), father inlaw to stroke, and my pampaw (gdad) to ahlzeimers(sp?); motivates me that much more. Also, my husband had tonsil cancer this yr-it's gone! The treatment was horrible though. Life shouldn't be taken for granted and I want to take better care of myself than my parents did. It was hard to diet this yr, but I'm back on track. I just didn't really care about my health until all of this was over. Now that you know my life history, HI!
