Please please discuss taking baby aspirin or any aspirin with your pharmacist as well as the doctor. Particularly if you have osteoporosis. Aspirin is a nasid and interferes with the absorption of calcium.....and your pharmasist is the best at knowing and being willing to discuss drug interactions. Also you can develop an allergic reaction to aspirin from taking too much....it is a very helpful drug but you need to be aware of the side effects and its effect on your other meds if you take any.

Read a few times this info is too dated. I felt each one made sense and should be repeated. Although it may not have been proven to prevent HBP on the sodium, it still affects enough to watch. I am proud to say I am doing each one. Maybe not perfect such as the sodium but I do keep track. When you start getting rid of that process and fast food, weight starts to come down. If I recall correctly, only 3 ounces of dark chocolate per week is all that is needed. Lifestyle changes need to be done in steps and slowly for us to adjust to acceptance. Report
Good suggestions worth following. Report
The sodium& high blood pressure connection is not proven. Correlation does not mean causation. Once diagnosed with HBP they recommend using less sodium, which is good. But reducing salt intake to prevent it-there is no evidense it helps. Report
