Advice on High blood pressure lifestyle

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone could help? I am in hospital at the moment with amazingly high BP and am being treated for it. I was wondering if people knew any good lifestyle tips, diet and exercise ideas which might be good. I am 34 and have a stressful ish life/job, am relatively fit (slightly overweight due to the gym)

I have been told to have 2 weeks completely relaxing. Does anyone know if stress alone could do this? thanks

Certainly doesn't help but it's also a hereditary condition.

 

Both of my parents had/have it so I was always expecting it at some point and have been taking 2 pills a day for the last 4 years.

 

Cut down on the booze if you drink and try to loose some weight will help.

I'm not being funny but surely you'll get the best advice from the medics treating you and know your medical history

I'd echo Anny's advice defo seek a doctors recommendation.

 

From what I know there are things that you can do to moderate it, but if your susceptible they will only have a small influence. I've a high stress tolerance whereas my wife's incredibly low, but I've just turned 40 am overweight and don't exercise and if I'm going to have a problem it'll be soon,so I've started by getting my diet right, then once the weights down I'm going to start running again.

 

If your going to do exercise do cardiovascular, watch the diet, smoking and alcohol consumption and keep positive.

 

Don't know if that's any use, but hope it helps

Serious answer, to reduce stress do mindfulness. Ignore all the hippy shit and try some of those exercises. It's just a way of changing your focus and concentrating on your breathing. It's easy to do and will help you learn to chill out.

Smoke more...40 a day is good

Whiskey helps. None of your cheap shit, though. Has to be a decent malt

Rich food with plenty of salt & butter. Steak & chips with a bottle or two of a cracking red

Don't listen to the Drs. They're all in thrall to this healthy living nonsense

Never exercise

get hold of some decent pills, double drop then walk home. once you get in, snort 5 fat lines off the side then open a bottle of vodka , throw on never mind the bollocks by the sex pistols then ring a phone sex line. 

 

do this and this only.

Like others have said, listen to the medics, but it could be worth having a look at your diet. They'll surely give you recommendations, and have just seen something called the DASH diet, but it could also be useful if you look into anti-inflammatory foods as well (and omega 3 to 6 ratio in your diet.) Make sure you check with your medics first though obviously. Cutting back on the more sodium/processed-type foods, and eating more veggies might be one of the basic starting points though.

 I used to drink about 50 pints a week. My GP told me to reduce my alcohol consumption.

 

At my 3 month review I told him I had reduced my alcohol consumption by half.  He was delighted and tested my BP and found no difference.

 

I said "I don't get it. I'm drinking 49 and half pints per week, what other sacrifices can I make to reduce it".

 

 

 He said "The best thing you can do is cut alcohol completely, don't smoke, no meat, and run 10 miles a day".

 

 I said "What's the second best?"

I asked my doc if a pint of cider counted as one of my five-a-day.

    • Only 3 of those players played today.
    • I said hundreds of times over the past 10 years I'd accept relegation the following year if we could just win that illusive title. I think too many people forget just how far we were from winning the league. It was a dream, as less likely to win it than Spurs or Arsenal. We eventually beat a side to the title that had 300m worth of players on their bench today. We didn't get to celebrate it and we now we endure 90 repetitive minutes of souless football every week. Its fucking shite but its not real, when fans return Brighton, Everton, City and Fulham will turn up sitting themselves again.   Today was about sporting integrity,  we gave Burnley and Brighton 3 points, it would have been unfair on Fulham not to give them 3 too. 
    • I thought it wouldnt take long for you to drag Henderson into this,despite him not playing for a while. Milner has no stronger or weaker mental strength than Henderson and much as I love Mane and Mo,they are both as guilty for letting their heads drop too. Its not individual players,its the whole group and maybe even the manager too. They have given up and nobody knows exactly why. It cant help knowing you have lower league ability centre halves in the team but players with a 'winning mentality' would go the extra mile because of it. None of the players you mentioned,apart from VVD are any better than the rest in that respect.
    • Those words from Owen shows exactly what kind of person he is himself I reckon. That’s maybe how he would be thinking, putting himself and his dislike for a team mate first.   Salah and Mane may not be the best of mates, what the fuck do I know, but I dont for a second believe that either of them would act like that. That he even came up with this theory telles me that Owen is more of a self cemtered little twat than I ever thought he was.
    • Why can't we all just wish them well?   Great achievement and well deserved
