Stress in and of itself is hard on the body but dieting and not seeing results can be stressful. Learning to manage the stress may prove helpful in dieting.

All things are possible if you only believe, even losing 15 pounds

ANGELBELIEVER I too have white collar syndrome. I am from England and they too use the expression so it is most definitely a symptom of anxiety or stress.
That is why I can sit at home and relax and take my BP.
My Dr and my DH cardiologist were very pleased when we bought the BP meters and we used BPLOG.com for a lot of years.
DH still uses his log it is a free site but I have been keeping mine on the computer so when I go I print it and the Dr pretty much ignores what the nurse puts in the notes.
The Dr says if you have plenty of normal numbers and low numbers that is good it often elevates but that way we know it comes down because it is never the same measurement consistently.
Well done !!!!!.
I am now off my BP meds and I feel it is due to my walking very often. I walk 4 miles a couple of times a week with friends. I am the youngest and I am 70 years young. Pat in Maine,.

There is such a thing as White Coat syndrome. Your blood pressure goes up when you enter a doctor's office. My DH is like that.

My high blood pressure was inherited from my dear, sweet grandmother. I'm on 2 kinds of meds and it's a great combo because it's working.

I cut way back on the amt' of red meat, and don't use salt when cooking. I may add a little sea salt to my salad but that's all.

I take mine every day and I notice when I go to Dr's office it is always high. They take you in, WEIGH YOU, ask all kinds of questions and by that time it can be up.
I learned yoga many years ago and we were told to do deep breathing. When I sit for a few minutes I relax and do some deep breathing and it comes down.
I have three cuffs in the house DH has his and I used to use the arm one. I found it needs some moving around to get it on right so I have bought one I put on my Wrist and hold it right over your heart. If you are correct place it is blue light and orange means not in the right place.
When i go to the Dr's office I print my numbers from home. I am not taking meds. Pat in Maine. I am 70 years young. emoticon

MJEFFERSON23- I am having the same problem.
I'm taking the meds properly, drinking water, eating healthy including packing my lunch & snack.
It seems to be the stress of my new job & position.
I'm trying to take more walks during the work day and increased water intake, but the doctor had to increase the meds.

My doctor and I have noticed that no matter how healthy I eat and how faithfully I take my BP meds (I have three), it is more difficult to control my BP when I'm working! Whenever I am off work for a few weeks, my BP is normal, even if I skip my meds and eat poorly! What do you think?

The only "diet" that works is consistency!
