Q: 

I have high blood pressure despite a healthy life

A: I am sorry to hear that you have been found to have hypertension at such a young age. If the diagnosis has been made outside of the health service, at an employment medical or the gym, you should arrange to see your GP, who will first verify whether the diagnosis is correct. Lots of people have transiently raised blood pressure when they are tense or uncomfortable. It is a reaction to stressful circumstances and is quite normal. It is sometimes known as white coat hypertension and does not carry the same implications as a diagnosis of established hypertension. Hypertension [the condition] and white coat hypertension [the reaction] can be difficult to differentiate except through repeated blood pressure measurement. Be sure that your diagnosis is based on a least three and preferably five...
Q: 

Is my blood pressure exhausting me?

A: I am sorry to hear that you have been found to have high blood pressure. This might account for you feeling ''unwell, drained and exhausted''. If the diagnosis was made outside of the Health Service, e.g. at the gym, you should arrange to see your GP, who will first verify whether the diagnosis is correct.

Q: 

What can I do about high blood pressure?

A: I am sorry to hear that you have been found to have high blood pressure (<a href=&#34;/diseases/facts/hypertension.htm&#34;>hypertension</a>) at such a young age. If this assessment has been made on a single measurement of blood pressure (BP) it is important to get it checked at least twice more before accepting the diagnosis. Our BP changes all the time and a single reading can be misleading. The first thing you should do is see your GP, who will first verify whether the diagnosis is correct. If you do have hypertension it is important to identify the cause. Although in the large majority of cases no cause can be found, because you are young it is important to exclude diseases of the kidney, pituitary gland, adrenal gland and major blood...

Q: 

What if the liver can''t clear away all of your blood''s toxins?

A: If the pathways in the liver become overloaded with toxins, the risk is that toxins will build up faster than sidewalk snow in a blizzard. And without a biological shovel to clear them away, there''s a lot of liver trouble lurking. Why? Many of these toxins are fat-soluble, meaning they wiggle their way into fatty parts of your body, where they may stay for years (or for your entire life!). And by fatty parts of your body, I don''t mean your gut or your butt, but fatty organs like your liver itself, brain and hormonal glands. The effect: Such niceties as cirrhosis (liver failure in process), brain dysfunction and hormonal imbalances, such as infertility, breast pain, menstrual disturbances, adrenal gland exhaustion, and early menopause, not...
Q: 

How much is ACTUALLY TOO MUCH sodium (or how much extra can I have)?

A: 2 weeks agoCan SOMEONE please! answer the question I'm asking! I'm not asking how much sodium you need. I'm asking how much is too much. WHEN does it start to become harmful to your health?''2 weeks agoThank you matador89. So the max IS 2400mg a day and the MINIMUM is NOT 2400mg a day. Which means my can of soup meets all of my needs for a week PLUS. That sucks. I wonder why the FDA is telling us that they RECOMMEND that we receive 2400mg a day (R in RDA stands for RECOMMENDED) when if what you say is true we need, what was it, 115mg a day. Oh, and you might just want to provide a source for your answer. Don't just copy/paste without telling us where you got the info. It's against the rules to just copy/paste. '' The body's daily requirement for sodium is quite...

What Does It Mean If You Crave Salty Foods?
