If you decide to try diet and exercise first, before trying medication, you might get your own blood pressure gauge so you can follow your progress
in reducing blood pressure naturally.
Are you also exercising?
What were your blood pressure readings in the doctor's office?
Lastly, congratulations on cutting back on the alcohol and going on a healthier diet. I wish you the best of luck in losing weight, getting healthier and lowering your blood pressure!
