BP lifestyle choices: Weight loss, exercise, low sodium diet paired with a high potassium diet, tobacco avoidance, and NSAID avoidance all together can help lower blood pressure significantly and delay the need for medications sometimes for many years. There are many good treatment options to control your blood pressure. The higher your blood pressure the greater your risk of problems and likelihood you will need meds.

A 39-year-old male asked:

If I eat a lot of salty food then right afterwards eat even more sweets, will that lower my blood pressure a little? What happens?

No: In the long run, eating too much salt could increase your blood pressure, but in the short run it will not. Eating sugar afterwords should have no effect on your blood pressure. If you're having blood pressure difficulties, you should see your family doctor.

The debate about salt and hypertension has been going on for at least the last 50 years. About every five years a meta study reverses the opinion of the last one. Who knows?
