Default high blood pressure question

so I went to a medical review for a new job last week, and then this week i went to the physical portion of the exam, both times my blood pressure was high. i am told i need to lower it, what do you do to accomplish this? I have been working on living healthier lately, but i have had a lot of stress in my life lately, I heard that can make it go up, what can i do?

I do not haz teh diabeetus. I pull glucose readings in the 90's all day long. Definitely worth testing guys. It's better to catch it early than late.

As was said, change your diet. But also limit that stress. When I wrecked my old Ranger, they dragged me into the ambulance (I didn't think I needed to be checked out, it took 3 of them to put me in there) and told me my blood pressure was high. I looked them all in the eyes and said no fucking shit. My truck is in a tree right over there, and you expect me to be calm? Really?

Moral of the story, stress can elevate your blood pressure pretty substantially.lol.

My assistant manager has diabetes. He has to watch his count and his sugar level. He can have so many counts of calories or carbs I think. I'll ask him tomorrow. I think he said he can't eat no more that 500 a day. So he eats light in the morning and a good dinner at night.

An advertisement is not a good source of health information. The FDA even had to put cheerios in check regarding their advertising.

The health benefit to cheerios is the soluble fiber. Soluble fiber can be found in many different kinds of cereal and food products. If you want to get real healthy with your cereal, go for oatmeal with some whole grain bread.

Basically, diet & exercise are the things to implement

I have been having high BP since I injured my back. They say that pain can cause high BP. Also, just the exam itself may have cause the high BP, sometimes your body stresses over things like this with out you knowing/having control. Kinda like your sub-consious (spl) Try getting a home BP monitor and check yourself at night when you have calmed down for the day

Try to lay off the salt as much as possible try and reduce your stress levels exercise and diet. As far as the high bp pill is a prescription only kinda thing. The only thing to keep in mind when messing with your salt intake is days during the summer and your sweating like a pig increase your salt intake a little bit from the lowest amount that your taking in cuz if you loose too much salt through sweat it will make you feel bad and you bp will probably be a little to low.
