If you have unhealthy high blood pressure levels due to Metabolic Dysfunction, then you night always
need medications like Ace Inhibitors, or Beta Blockers, or Calcium Channel Blockers, to help block the effects of Metabolic Dysfunction.
So, looking into the dash and low sodium guidelines has overwhelmed me completely and scared me. Too difficult, complicated--but I still want to do it.
I posted a thread back in 2004 in which we discussed the effects of a modified dash like diet, called an Insulin Resistance Diet, and it's effect on high blood pressure.
If you would care to read it, here is the title: Does an "Insulin Resistance" diet improve blood pressure?

Many high blood pressure fellow members have fought the diet struggle, and are more than willing to chime in with their own experiences. Just be patient!
