There are several foods that you can use to lower your blood pressure, and the great thing about doing it with diet is that you avoid the extra expense and side effects of prescriptions. Some of them are: Very dark chocolate with no added milk Cold water fish like salmon Garlic - this one is great and very effective Water - trust me. Increase your water intake and see for yourself Increasing your intake of leafy and high fiber vegetables while shifting toward lean meat choices is also effective. Cutting down on the salt is also useful.

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?
