A member asked:

26 year old male, no insurance. my blood pressure is about 165/95, if i quit drinking and chewing, how much will my bp drop, numbers wise. scared!?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Could normalize: You you are heavy and drinking/chewing excessively, dieting/exercising to get to ideal body wt, stop drinking/chewing may normalize your blood pressure. No eat too much salt--google up the dash diet (dietary approach to stop hypertention) and follow it. Then check your bp, if still high, consult doc. The money u save from drinks/tobaccos will be more than enough to buy medicines. Good luck.
