What can I do during the day to lower BP ?

During the day I have HIGH blood pressure when active. Walking around ect.. High as in 140 over 105. During the night hours i am 110 over 70 SUPER LOW blood pressure. I went to a doctor who said he did not want to put me on anything due to the LOW pressure at night. He said the blood pressure pills would kill me.. is this a fact and if it is what can i do during the day to lower this.. Any help is great in this aspect..

A pressure of 110/70 is not low, it is normal. The doctor is right to hold off on medications for now, they might not kill you, but they could cause dizziness.

I am a 73 yr old man, 62 kilos with high blood pressure for these last 20 yrs but it is successfully being treated. I do sports, don t smoke and drink daily a small glass of wine. My mom died at 93 due to leucemia and father at 88 due to a massive stroke (his family was prone to strokes). I just had my yearly physical exam (ultra-sound of internal organs, blood profile, etc and all was normal. I take 100 mg of aspirin daily, Diovan 80 mg, Natrilix 1.5 mg, Norvasc 2.5 mg, Lipitor 5 mg on a daily basis. On 17 January I had a canine tooth extracted - a difficult extraction lasting one hour including opening up of the gum to see if it was possible to save the decayed tooth. Today, 30/01 the wound is almost healed and I ll see the dentist about an implant. However yesterday a.m. I think I had a transient ischemic attack experiencing great difficulty in articulating (speaking). It lasted about 30 minutes and now I feel fine. This p.m. I ll see my family doctor. Could this TIA be related to the stress of the extraction and periodontal work although the dentist monitored my blood pressure during this operation? I ve been living in Kunming, China (1800 metres altitude) for the last 21 yrs and in Cameron Highlands (Malaysia) for the last 3 months. Currently I am in Hong Kong since 9 January. Thanks, Jean-Noël Posner
