1) Reduce salt -intake, cut down on gravy, preserved food, sauces anything that has salt, since salt will retain water in the blood vessel which directly increase the pressure. 2) Eat food that are rich in potassium. it helps to remove sodium and water which will directly lower the blood pressure. papaya and banana are good sources of potassium. 3) reduce intake on food that are high in saturated fats, cut it down to minimal. it would be better to set say 3 days a week to be vegetarian (better still if one can go full vegetarian). 4) watch out for high cholesterol food. it will thicken the wall of the blood vessels causes the blood pressure to increase. eat more food rich in good cholesterol (HDL), it helps to clear the fat accumulated in the blood vessels. 5) exercising regularly is good. but the intensity is important too. if he doesn't mind vigorous exercise, then he should plan a weight loss training program like running 20 miles a week. every 2 pounds lost in weight will reduce the blood pressure by 1. 6) relaxation is important for hypertension. don't get over stress, don't get too anxious. there are many activities help people to relax their body and mind. eg. listening to music, taiji, yoga etc. fighting high blood pressure is a long process. don't worry too much, else it will only worsen the situation.

Hey Doctor Mintz I currently take losartan 50mg per day for high blood pressure . My blood pressure usually runs about 145 over 88 while on losartan. I am 58 years old white male. Here is my question: I had a upper repitory infection 2 weeks ago went on a Zpac of anitibiotics for 6 days and it seemed to clear me up for about a week now I am having trouble again and feel as though I am getting another upper respitory event same as before.? Should I suspect Losartan as the problem? I have not had issue before? Should I taper off the 50 mg per day and cut it to 25mg? or go off it slowly all together? THanks John
