Thread Name: BS: high blood pressure
Subject: RE: BS: high blood pressure
I always enjoy watching the expression on the nurse's face as she takes my blood pressure and finds it to be in the 'ideal' range.

A young buck at a gym once decided that his testing device had broken because it showed I did not have high blood pressure.

I am a little dumpy grandma, but I eat low carb, don't add salt to my food, avoid processed foods, get about on a bicycle and play on my trampoline in the garden.

In the past there have been people who have told me that they would rather be dead than give up eating the sugar and flour part of their diets, which is a good job, because they are.

I have my own BP measurer, they are quite cheap - and if I had found my results were higher than normal I would have been round to the doctors like a shot. My father had circulation problems which kept him from working for years and eventually resulted in his death.
