I think your dad is not doing physical exercise, is his job sedentary in nature? does he have symptoms like faintness or giddiness or he gets irritated very soon,does he takes sleeping pills. There are lots of reasons for the above reading. If your dad is feeling fine with this BP, leave him alone or you can consult a cardiologist for further evaluation.

Hi, my dad s blood pressure has been up since yesterday (ranges from 182/100 to 201/100). My dad says that he feels fine regardless. He s been taking his med, but his rheumatologist doctor told me that he has edema and gout. He received a shot for his gout yesterday, which relieved his pain, but his bp is still very high. I haven t heard from my dad s cardiologist on what to do, but is there anything I can do at home to improve his bp? My dad s bp normally averages 160/90. Thanks for your help.

I want to help my Dad lower his high blood pressure . Where can I find recipes that will help him lower his bp ? I really want to help my Dad lower his blood pressure. I know that he needs to avoid excess salt or anything that contains high salt content but he s a single Dad now and he and my brother live alone and since he doesn t ever have time to cook, he makes unhealthy food choices that are quick to prepare (mostly heat and eat stuff). These are usually really high sodium too which isn t helping his condition so I want to help them out by preparing some healthy meals for them. Especially for helping my Dad get his blood pressure to a safe range. Can anyone please give me some recipes or a link that contains recipes that are healthy for someone who has high blood pressure? I really wanna help him / them.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
