I am a 58 y/o white female. My BP has been 160/92 range and I get headaches for quite a while. I already take HZTC and a water pill (low doses). Will I have to go on stronger meds?

A BP at that level over an extended period is definitely not desirable. It is very common for high BP to need treatment with a combination of medicines which treat the condition from different angles. This is the case with me, I have to take a diuretic, a beta-blocker, and an ACE inhibitor.

Go ask the doctor about what to do next. It is indeed possible the doc may prescribe an additional medicine, but the benefits are well worth it.

I am a 76 year old female. My blood pressure is 124 or 56. Is my bottom number too low?


It is a little low. If you have not already, go see your doctor for an opinion which takes in all the other factors like your weight, activity level, other medicines you take, smoking (if any) and so on.

Us seniors need BP to be managed a bit because our plumbing is not what it was anymore.

Is a resting heart rate of 55 too low for an aged female ? It's usually about 75


There are a whole list of other factors that need to be looked at here. Athletes have lower heart rates than the rest of us. The BP is a bit high. Both situations need to be reviewed by a doctor. They can do tests that the rest of us on the internet can't do to look at the heart rate and BP at the same time.

Why can't I take Grenade's Killa Ketones if I am under 18 (I am 17 nearly 18)? What harm will it bring me?


CONTAINS CAFFEINE 200MG PER DAILY DOSE. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN(Under 18) OR PREGNANT WOMEN.
Does Grenade Killa Ketones Have Any Side Effects? The majority of ingredients used in diet pills can cause a range of side effects. The likelihood of each side effect occurring vary between each individual user, and also depend upon the quantity of each ingredient within the diet pill.
The health of the consumer is also a significant factor. Dosage, the time and frequency with which the pill is taken, and even the food and drink consumed by the diet pill user can affect the chances of side effects from occurring.
Caffeine is one of the main ingredients used in Grenade Killa Ketones: its use can cause headaches, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia.
Chromium Picolinate can lower blood sugars levels and as such should not be used by diabetics without first consulting their doctor. Low blood sugar levels can lead to light headedness, dizziness and fainting. Customers who have not eaten for several hours are more likely to experience these side effects.
White Kidney Bean is a carbohydrate blocking ingredient. It is possible that whilst the body is getting used to the effects of the carb blocking elements of Grenade Killa Ketones, users may experience stomach pains, increased bowel movements and gas. Some users of carb blockers in general report severe gas and bloating throughout their use of the products. Discomfort and tenderness in the stomach is not uncommon, and heartburn is also reported. Consuming carb-heavy meals can result in diarrhoea, as a large amount of food is passing through the body unprocessed. This diet pill contains a small quantity of White kidney bean, so side effects are likely to be minimal.

WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED LOW BLOOD PRESSURE?IS IT NORMAL FOR MY TOP NUMBER TO CHANGE FROM 104 TO 129 IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES?


There are standard methods for measuring BP. One should be seated on chair, feet on ground, leaned back, relaxed for at least 5 minutes, at least 2 hrs after a meal, .... then repeating this procedure several times daily, and averaging will provide some ave daily BP value.
Using this procedure for hourly BP measures, one can adjust times and doses of BP medicines taken daily.
