There is no definitive general "limit", but even a minimal set of numbers "above the norm" can have serious consequences, including stroke and cardiac arrest. If you don't have medical coverage, consider the alternatives; A simple thing like "munching" from one to three stalks of celery per day, and drinking lots of fresh, clean, (preferably distilled) water, with just a "half-a-pinch" of sea salt in it, has been shown to significantly reduce blood pressure in many persons, often in as little as a few days, and there are no adverse side effects associated with this method, in contrast to the many adverse side effects associated with the majority of pharmaceutical-based remedies. I'm not a licensed physician, and as such, I can't legally offer medical advice, but I've been involved in alternative medicine for the better part of 17 years now, and the "celery and water" system seems to be one of the best ways I know of, to naturally control high blood pressure, and do it quickly, safely, cheaply and effectively. Any doctor will also tell you to "avoid stress" which is one of the "dumbest" and most "stupid" statements, ever heard! People don't "look" for stress, but in most instances, it can't easily be avoided. If stress is being placed upon you by an employer, co-worker, spouse or family member, then get help ASAP, to eliminate this major cause of stress.

Doctors have tried to control my blood pressure for years , it spikes high sometimes with a feeling i have told them feels like a shot of adrenalin . Stress seems to play arole in it. I have also been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes which spiked at an A1c of 8.4 but it also fluctuates . My doctor said today these are not related. My question is would I really benefit from going to an endocrinologist . This has been going on for 20+ years.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
