avoid foods that are salty or spicy. i would stay away from processed foods and freezer foods as these tend to have lots of salt and trans fats. i have been told by my doctor that garlic helps to lower blood pressure as well. my brother and i both started eating garlic when we were told this and both of us now have normal blood pressure again.

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday.
