Trying to Learn

Hello,
My husb as just diagnosed with high blood pressure & enlarged heart. We need to make lifestyle changes etc. I've read about DASH and I'm trying to learn as much as possible. Any comments, advise or observations would be appreciated. I posted this in High Blood Pressure as well because I'm trying to get as much info as possible. Thanks.

Re: Trying to Learn

By DASH, I assume you mean the diet for high blood pressure. If his bp is high enough and has been so long enough to enlarge his heart, then medications are more likely the answer. The diet won't hurt, but probably won't be enough.

How high is his bp? What is his ejection fraction; in other words, is his heart still pumping well?
