Re: Anyone, after HBP diagnosis and lifestyle change, eliminate or drastically reduce

I was lucky to catch my hypertension quickly and I was able to avoid medications. But I know a guy who quit after 20 years of medications. He was on diuretics and a second category I'm not sure of at the moment. Yes, it can definitely be done.

In fact, if you're obese the changes from losing weight can be dramatic. There's no guarantee but even if you did have to continue with medications you'll still be way better off.
