Decreasing your weight by as little as 10% can lead to a reduction in blood pressure. Stick to a low sodium diet and exercise and you could stave off the need for medication. If your blood pressure does not come within normal range (130-120/80-90) with these changes, you may need to add medication to your regimen and/or get evaluated for possible causes of the hypertension. If your systolic blood pressure is >180 or diastolic blood pressure is >100, it is a good idea to see your doctor anyway.

I am 35yrs old, 5 9 and 210 lbs. My blood pressure has been borderline for the most part but now the last two times within a matter of 2 months, I have taken my blood pressure and it tends to be 141/100. I am very concerned and devastated right now. What can I do to lower my pressure naturally? or is it better to see a doctor and take blood pressure meds?

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?
