High Blood Pressure Medicine

Do You Have High Blood Pressure or Diabetes?

Tuesday, October 17, 2006

Tip! Weight - people who are overweight are more at risk of high blood pressure than those who are of normal weight. Blood pressure tends to rise as body weight increases.

My husband has had both for years and he finally got both of them under control. It took a trip to the hospital before we really realized how bad it was, and how bad it could get. After a week in the hospital, and taking note of what they were feeding him, and what the dietitian was talking about, and reading the booklet's about the food to eat and not to eat, it hit me, this way of eating is like the South Beach Diet. We were on the South Beach diet, and as a lot of people do, we fell off the wagon.

Once he got on the diet they had him on it was easy to stick to it, thanks to the South Beach Diet. He now sticks to the both of the diets like a fish sticks to water. He had lost 60 pounds in four or five months and his blood pressure and diabetes is under control. He still takes medicine for both but not as much. It is amazing how your diet can change your health and your life.

Tip! Family history - a history of high blood pressure in your family can put you into a high risk group of having high blood pressure. It is common for high blood pressure to be passed down from generation to generation.

The South Beach Diet isn't that hard to follow and it works. It consist of cutting out certain foods for two weeks, then adding some them back after that two weeks. The most important thing is cut out all those foods with sugar. I use to eat a banana a day. That is the worse fruit you can eat. Tons of sugar. Also fruits are good for you but the sugar in them is high. Did you know that when you eat something sweet that you will crave more food during the day, even if you aren't hungry?

Once you go on this diet for just two weeks you will be amazed that you don't crave the foods you had to give up. Bread, potatoes, bananas, etc. And the weight you lose is great. I am suggesting that if you have high blood pressure or diabetes, do yourself a favor and get on the South Beach Diet. You will be amazed how you feel in two weeks, and your blood pressure and blood sugar will come down. My husband checks his blood pressure and blood sugar every day. He cheats on the diet every so often but goes right back on the diet the next day. You need to follow the diet but if you cheat, no big deal, you just start back up the next day. Believe me once you start this diet you will love it.

Tip! Diet - a diet high in fat and sugar can cause blood pressure to rise. The healthier the diet, the less risk there is of high blood pressure and of blood pressure related disease.

Get out your scale and watch the pounds fall off. Oh yes and save one piece of clothing so you can go back in a couple months and look at it, or try it on and see how much you lost. You will want to keep going on the weight loss. My husband did, and we laugh at how big he use to be, and how big the clothes are on him now.
