Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Do you have an opinion?
What were the values of your last blood pressure
Over 24hr monitor daytime was 157/87 & night was 138/88
Okay, do you take any medication?
Yes, I have MS take Betaferon every other day. Also take 15mg dalmane for sleep
I'll be on betaferon for life. Don't want to commit to another life-long medication!
Do you exercise at all?
Not much, in fact no, not at all!
Okay,do you anything preventing you from exercising?
that aside, what else? it can't be just down to exercise ....
Okay, your blood pressure is not too high, and there is a possibility it can be controlled with a healthy diet and exercise
that's what I thought
would rather change diet & exercise than go on meds!
Healthy diet= limit red meat and salt , then try eating more vegetables, fruit, fish and nuts
yeah, thing is 'healthy diet' describes my diet for ever, it's never been unhealthy
Okay, then just keep it up and add exercise
Yes, seriously, it is that simple
well that's good to hear.
You're very welcome
I am happy I could help
Thought there might be an other way!
If you have any questions in the future you may request me by asking for "Dr Brims" and I will answer
You're quite welcome
