Fresh fruit and veggies. Avoid food with high sodium content. If they are not on meds to control their blood pressure then perhaps they need to talk with their doctor(s). Green tea will help flush their system which will rid salt from their system. If their bp was through the roof they might be retaining to much fluid which causes the heart to work harder which in turn raises the blood pressure. Sounds like they need to: A. Talk with their doctor and B. Maybe talk with a dietitian. Cut back on the salt intake as well.

hi,thanks for query,first of all to control blood pressure you need to take medicines only.So if the blood pressure is very high first please see your doctor.In general low salt diet is advised to reduce blood pressure.Avoid food containing high amount of fat,that can lead to other problems.Fruits and salads can be taken in plenty in the absence of any other disease which may limit its intake.Regular exercise along with diet is also must.
wishing them good health.

My blood pressure is about 155/78 sometimes higher sometimes lower and I am only 24. I work out 4 days a week cardio and weight lift. I try to watch what I eat and usually eat somewhat healthy even though I drink alot of caffeine. Is this a serious health risk even though I work out as much as I do? Am I at risk of getting a heart attack later on in life if this continues? Somebody with medical experience please help!

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?
