Re: I'm Trying Something

Once I was on Altace and it worked great to reduce my BP, however, I developed a cough and discontinued it. BP went back to 140/85. I got serious about dieting and managed to lose a mere 10 pounds to my surprise my BP went down to the same level as when I was on Altace. Problem is I am 61, with thyroid problem, and it is tough to lose the weight and keep it off.
