High blood pressure can be primary which is 85-95% of cases which means there is no particular cause behind it or the cause is unknown or it can be secondary which means there are other factors causing it and the best way to deal with it is to know which one it is and only your doctor can determine that and treat you accordingly. But there are other non medicinal ways you can fllow that may help but they will never substitute medication if needed. Those things you need to follow are:
1. Light daily excercises at least 30 minutes a day.
2. Avoid salt in your food and drinks and those drinks that contain salt are all kind of soft drinks like Coke or Pepsi.
3. Avoid stressful conditions as much as you can
4. Take green tea as it has some diuretic effect whcih can help in reducing blood pressure to some extent.
5. Eat healthy as much as you can that rich in fruits and vegetables and low fat and avoid all junk food.
Again you have to check with your doctor to know how high it is and what kind of blood pressure and if you need medication or not.
Best of luck

Hi I have a BP monitor at home . Right now my reading is 130/86. I have a Bicuspic valve. Today I have been put on a low dose of BP medication after my clinic measured my BP at 151/113. This was taken immediately on arrival at the clinic after walking from the car park and a rather stressfull car journey. Am I right to be concerned about the starting medication on this evidence? .. I have recently had my personel BP monitor calybrated ..AGE 50 thank you
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?
