High BP does not mean you cannot exercise! In fact gentle exercise will help it go down, obviously not hard gym workouts but she should do regular walking. Get a copy of the book "The GI Diet by Rick Gallop". Its a great diet for diabetics and along with exercise and regular blood testing at home your mum will soon get things under control. I have high BP, high cholesterol and was diagnosed diabetic almost 7 months ago and I also have arthritis of the spine! I have lost 5 stone on the GI Diet since I was diagnosed and feel almost human again! lol; Losing weight will also help the sleep apnoea;
