Hi I thought I join in for this and see what others may be doing for their blood pressure. Sunny arizona you are right about getting a physical and sometime it is necessary to take pills Also it depends where you are at with blood pressure sometime it is just diet and exercise and the doctors.
Some doctors are more apt to push pills than others,. I was on a lot of pills after my heart attack but with diet and exercise and not eating processed foods or any junk food for that matter and not only watching calories but SODIUM is the biggie say what you want but that is the killer. I stay under 1500 mgs and it hard balanced diet. I now am taking only one pill for my heart. I go every 6 months to the doctor for a physical and I am better now at 60 than I was at 50. Fact ! I am enjoying life without the red meat , and junk / processed foods. Good luck at the doctor. Chat with all later.
A year from now you will wish you started TODAY !!!
