No More Salt!

Yep, I'm only 38 and high blood pressure.  I found out when I had my wisdom teeth out; they checked it 3 different times, and the nurse looked me in the eye and told me "You have to go see your family doctor about this".  So I did, the doctor put me on Dyazide.  I think it is working, I go in to check it and get a cholesterol test tomorrow.  I do feel better, don't have headaches like I used to.  Not sure what caused it, probably family history.  Not really life-changing, I just watch the ingredients in everything, and don't put extra salt on anything.

All my life I had a very low blood pressure, now it is to high and I have to take medication, nobody knows why, but I guess, that it the way it is.

I am 48, and just been told I have high blood pressure. Made me worry at first about heart attacks etc but my ECG was fine, so now doing some blood tests. I think mine may be due to hormonal changes-it's my age!!I didn't realise this affects blood pressure.

i am also 35 year old. I have high blood pressure. i take generic accupril drug for high blood pressure. accupril is a part of drugs family recognized as "ACE inhibitors." It works by stopping a element in your blood called angiotensin I from altering into a extra strong shape that raises salt and water preservation in your body. canadian accupril furthermore increases blood flow all the way through your blood vessel. you can get more information about mexican accupril and buy low price accupril online from

I'm 38, too. I was diagnosed borderline high BP when I was 10. I have been on meds since I was in my late 20's. Who knows why?? It just is. The best thing is just to find meds that keep it controlled. I'm on 2 different ones & I haven't ran high for 2yrs. You'll be okay ;-)

It was probably stress, how you used to eat, your body weight or just not enough exercise. My mom has bad blood pressure and it is because of all the things I mentioned. Take care!!!
