    When you are HYPOtensive…you know, when it is TOO low.
    Hot weather might lower your pressure one or two points, but remember, if it did lower blood pressure, your doctor would tell you to adjust your meds during the summer and they would tell you to either move to a warmer climate or turn the heat up in your house when you are first diagnosed.

    I would NOT follow the advice of "Mrs.Doubtfire", to do so would be very dangerous to your health.
    Obviously he/she has not seen nor cared for patients that have had uncontrolled hypertension and are now on kidney dialysis (kidneys are destroyed by prolonged excessively high blood pressure).
    I am currently caring for a 40 year old woman that had stopped taking her blood pressure meds and had a stroke as a result. She can not speak, can not move one side of her body and the other side is extremely weak, it is still to be seen how her memory is (because she can not speak)…we are beginning to wonder if she remembers her two youngest children because of the look on her face when they come to visit. From what I understand, it was not uncommon for her pressures to be in excess of 250/100 in the office (and that is most definitely not white coat hypertension)…when she was taken to the ER after her stroke, her pressure was around 300's/+150's.
    On the up side, if you are over weight, loosing the excessive weight will definitely help, it did my father…he was places on BP meds because he had a series of strokes related to his blood pressure. He lost the weight and is no longer on any medications.

    Yes, 150/110 is way too high.
    "normal" is about 110-120/70-80, that is about where you should be shooting for.
    If you are wanting to get off the meds, get down to a healthy weight and exercise. If you are the proverbial "couch potato", just walking around the block is a good start and increase your distance and speed every 1-2 weeks, no special equipment required.
    Oh, and don't forget to check your pressure BEFORE taking the meds. Keep a log of your readings and if you are consistently getting low readings check your batteries, if you get similar readings with the new batteries, then let the doc know what your readings have been and he will make the needed adustments to your meds.
