    haha what? Sodium raises your blood volume...making it BP higher. Was that sarcasm?

    120/74 ftw.

    That's true for some people. Don't forget to take off your tinfoil hat next time.

    Everyone should care about systolic. A high systolic will give you a stroke faster than anything.

    I have never understood why people don't worry about systolic, who tells you not to? I've heard patients say that before, even when their systolic is over 200mm/hg and their vision is blurry and they have a skull splitting headache.

    Former high blood pressure member. :wavey:

    I dropped my bp by following cardiologist Dr. Davis's easy to do health heart program. It worked - vitamin D3 ftw!

    He has a blog that describes what drugs, supplements, and diets work and what doesn't work at: http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/

    I thought you also have to pay great attention to how far apart the sys/Diastolic are. Don't know whats considered "too far apart" but yeah..

    Yeah, but that is for those with 190/90 blood pressures....again going back to paying attention to your systolic blood pressure. A low diastolic blood pressure is worthless if your systolic is through the roof.

    2 years ago...Doc tried to put me on meds when I was 147/115. I told him fuck no , that I would change with diet and exercise. He was very skeptical and said he was going to note refused treatment. About a month ago I went to the doctor and the nurse said "Good BP" so I asked her what it was.....

    117/75 WOOT .... EX Hi-BP checking in!

    i'm 120/82. how "bad" is that? I have started 30 minutes of cardio 5x a week to help get it down. I don't use much salt if any at all in my food. what else can I do to get it down?

    As surprising as this might sound, getting out in the noon day sun could help. Sunlight on the skin will lead to the body producing vitamin D3. If there was ever an "it" vitamin D3 is it right now. D3 has been in the news quite a bit lately because of its ability to help the heart and lower blood pressure. Along with D3 from the sun or taking d3 oil form of supplements, you can also try eating low carb.

    I posted the sight earlier in this thread - to learn more on lowering blood pressure, along with other heart healthy items, there is a wonderful blog written by a cardiologist at: http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/ As far as I can tell, that sight is the best out there for learning heart healthy information.

    Isn't that within normal range?

    Anyways, exercise and quit drinking alcohol regularly.

    oh and cuff size is very important, the bladder should cover atleast 80% of upper up circumference. Too small and it will give you a high reading, vice versa if its too big. I woulndn't trust a nurses diagnosis either, get a referral to a cardiologist. Same applies for a lot of GP's.
