Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, and thank you for coming to JustAnswer.com
When is your appointment scheduled?
What have you been eating so far over the weekend?
ive got to make it,had a curry friday ,egg bacon and grilled toms breakfast sat morning and steak chips and ceasar salad sat night, porridge this morning,,2 glasses of prosecco frinight ,no alcohol saturday,or all week
You should make your appointment as soon as you can.
For now you really need to avoid salt in your diet. From what you've listed here there is quite a bit of salt, and that would drive your blood pressure up.
thankyou you have given me something to think about,ill make an appointment tomorrow,in the mean time just keep a check on it ,yes
Would you like me to give you a link to some of the lifestyle changes you should be making (ie eating much less salt)? Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes with you?
yes please thanks
Do you see the link above?
It is from the mayoclinic
Here is a link that is more specific about diet.
I hope I've given you "Excellent Service".
Do you have any further questions?
(If you would like to read more about lifestyle changes you can google "hypertention lifestyle changes". just make sure to read articles from reliable places and not the ads only.
I need to leave the computer for a few minutes. I'll be back.
