Subject: RE: BS: high blood pressure
Thank you ChanteyLass.
I know an elderly lady of 86 who lives alone and has never married. She's a bit of a property tycoon and owns many lettings in the Norwich area, which she manages herself. She's fiercely independent, and totally admirable. She goes for annual check-ups at Spire (private health care) and for the last several years her BP has been near 200 over 90. She refuses to take any medication for this (I don't know why she bothers with the check-ups!) and declares that this BP is normal for her and who's to say otherwise?
