I've known for a few years that I tend to have what they used to call pre-hypertension, and that they announced today (I think) will be called hypertension instead. The change, apparently, is to reflect the truth that numbers even slightly high, the old pre-hypertension, greatly increase the risk of stroke and heart attack.
I have strokes heavily in my family history, including my father having a stroke himself. Additionally, both my dad's parents died of strokes, and my uncle on that side had a stroke as did his son/my cousin who is older than me by about 20 years.
I know I need to exercise more and be more disciplined with what I eat (I have developed issues w/craving sweet/sugar, and I have never been good about resisting temptation with food).
What else can I do?
My special needs son is really hard. I feel I carry a lot of stress inside. I feel it.
Supplement wise? (I don't want to spend a lot on myself)
I need to work on this.
