A few weeks ago my dr. upped one of my HBP meds by 5 mg. Last week I started having a very itchy rash which was the beginning of an allergic reaction. Now I'm off that med and started another one. The rash continues to itch a lot. I am taking Zyrtec and cortizone cream which helps for a few hours at a time. Anyone have an suggestions what to use to stop the itching? Any help is appreciated.

Was your can veggies before cooking. Read labels everything has sodium added

You can easily follow DASH diet principles and use them right along with your SparkDiet to specifically target high blood pressure. This article will outline how.

I went to the doc when it was really high it was up like 140/100 and she told me i needed to exercise and eat better so i started exercising and it came down. My doc wants me to keep an eye on it and said if it stays high she wants me on meds. I really don't want to be on meds so I'm trying to get it down on my own. I guess i should work on my healthy eating..........

Have you discussed it with your doctor yet? There can be a lot of different reasons for HBP and he or she might want you to have some tests to rule out some of the less common causes.

I know after having her i started slacking in exercise so i started exercising again. my top number has gone down and is normally any where from 115-125 and my bottom number has been any where from 80-95. any suggestions on how i can get my bottom number down?
thanks
