Re: What do you think of this??
For two weeks in June my BP ranged from 106/58 to 128/72, with an average of 120/66. Then I made a big pot of scalloped potatoes and ate it all over a three-day period, along with my usual foods. The next morning after my first serving I had a reading of 144/65 and for three days most of my readings showed a systolic in the 140s and 150s. There was a single reading of 124/65 during this time. I don't think it was the salt in the scalloped potatoes, as (1) I don't think I'm salt sensitive, and (2) it was a "from scratch" recipe, not made from a mix and I put far less salt in them than one would get in a commercial recipe.
I had a doctor's appointment since, and asked my doc if that string of higher readings could have been the potatoes. She said no. But frankly, I still think it is, as I think I noticed the same thing previously when I ate a lot of flour tortillas and sugar over a period of a few days. I didn't record my diet on my BP record then, though, so I can't go back and check.
So yes, I'm suspicious of the same thing you are, but will need to test it out a few times more before I reach the conclusion that there is a cause and effect. At this point, it could still just be circumstantial.
