Hi. I have started a new thread due to the experience I have had over the last month with my blood pressure readings. I would be interested if anyone else out there has had a similar experience. One month ago my bp readings were averaging in the moderate hypertension range. Sometimes spiking to high hypertension. In 4 weeks I have lost 10lbs and now for the first time in years and years I weigh under 12stone. I stopped drinking alcohol and coffee. Gave up processed foods and snacks like crisps etc. Been eating porridge for breakfast, slimming shake for lunch with banana and lean meat with veg for dinner. I also do 30 mins exercise each day. And so here I am a month later and my readings today are 120/76!! Can this just be down to these lifestyle changes? I am still on ramapril and statins. I long to drink beer again and enjoy a meal with some chips with it, but dare I take the chance?
