Suddenly told I have hbp need to bring it down by changing my life style , also slightly overweight.
It was shock to me when I got the diagnosis. I'd felt unwell and stressed and went to the GP for a wellman check up. All my numbers were generally ok, except my weight (2st overweight) and my BP. I upped the exercise - more cardio - running, swimming, cycling, tennis, and really cut down on salted foods. No more cured meats, cut back on the starchy carbs like bread and pasta, tried to go for a more Mediterranean diet, and cut out the beer. In 3 months it had made a huge difference. Still on BP meds, but smallish doses...
Well done my friend.
chasing them up also had cortisol levels checked 2 weeks ago no results bk yet I have to have my eyes checked...
