How do i get cure from high blood pressure at the age of 61 years ?

I have High BP with BP drugs. Recently they changed from BP drugs to 2 diaretics 50mg HTC and Spirolatone. Now BP is low Dia 110-130 Sys 60-56 and a constant pulse of 56. Im very drousy / dizzy in morning. I took myself off one BP drug I took At night terazosin 5mg. It did nothing but make me impotent. Should i fire my doctors and start from scratch. Now they want me to go on a heart smart program with a nurse to monitor my heart and diabetes 2 drugs abs tests. Before i had this program it was inconsistent and go a minth waiting for lab results. I quit the program and now that I have diabetes they want me back on program. What do you advise?

I am 70 years of age, and I have been diagnosed with malignant neurocardiogenic syndrome, I have obviously suffered with this most of my life as I can recall fainting spells since about 14 years of age but had never been diagnosed before, this time I was diagnosed after fainting during a tilt test and I was prescribed atenolol. I did take this for a while but found it slowed me down and when I didn t take it I experienced episodes of an sudden unstable high pulse rate. I realized that this was probably a reaction to the stopping taking the atenolol but I have continued to not take the betablocker and the sudden attacks of high pulse rate, etc., have now stopped. I haven t had a fainting episode for some time. I know I have to be careful first thing in the morning and I cannot stand still for too long, I avoid drinking alchohol and I know there are various other things which can trigger an attack which I try to avoid. When I was diagnosed I was also found to have high blood pressure at times which I was told made it more difficult to treat I know my blood pressure can suddenly go up at times, but I have bought a home monitor and I have been keeping a record and I now find that my blood pressure is fairly normal most of the time and often quite low first thing in the morning. I have also been told that I have high cholesterol. As I know there is not a cure for vasovagal syndrome and I feel that taking the beta-blockers was only masking the problem and did have some side effects I think I am better to just keep an eye on my blood pressure, take regular exercise and I have changed my diet to include garlic, herbs peppers and other foods which might help my condition. One thing that puzzles me rather is that my pulse rate is usually higher ( although not too high about 75-80 ) when I wake first thing in the morning and then drops down to about 60 when I am up and about.

Hello. My husband is in post pancreatitis stage and is home leading a normal life . The cause of this illness remains a mystery to the doctors that attended to him as he does not drink alcohol and gall stones were also ruled out. My question is, what kind of foods shld he be eating? I don t want to know about diets that help lose your belly, I want to know about nutrition. What my husband does is if he gets an ache and upset tummy, he reviews what he ate over the last few meals and assumes a certain food caused and just says he wont eat it again, and this goes on til the next tummy ache. He does still take creon and he is not a diabetic at this stage based on tests that have been done. We are based in Cairns Aussie. Any advice or education on these issues wld be most appreciated.
