High blood pressure after eating, dizziness, pressure goes back to normal. Treatment?

High blood pressure question. My 15 yr old daughter has normal bp , but always after eating her bp raises slightly making her dizzy for a few minutes,then goes back to normal. Were keeping track of this and her pcp is considering sending her to an endocrinologist . My boyfriends bp has had a steady rate of 150 over 100. Until such time as I can get him into a doc, what can I do to help lower it?

usually after eating blood flow stomach is increased and the blood flow to brain is decreased slightly so you feel sleepy. slight raise in bp is insignificant. if her weight is in normal range and other symptoms or complaints no need for endocrinology consultation. regarding your boyfriend bp it is definitely higher and he can start walking diet /salt control and exercise to reduce bp if it fails he can start on drugs after consulting a physician
