Hi, I have had high blood pressure for the past 5 years (used to have readings of 145/90 consistently) and am on medication since then. Currently I am taking a drug called Covance D. I have been leading a disciplined life in terms of diet (lots of fruits, less oil, more good fats such as in walnuts, lots of veggies, whole grains etc.) & exercise (I do stationary jogging at a good pace for 40 mins everyday and some 100 push ups in 1 minute). My BP readings are now mostly 122/80.
My question is this: Do you think it is possible for me to give up my BP medication ?
