results from lower sodium
lhorschel posted:
i had seen improvement from 140's/90's to 120's/70's and was very pleased. i am upset that my doctor for 5 years had only wanted to treat me with meds, when a diet adjustment seems to have the same results.
thanks for responding

I have no idea why your doctor did not suggest lifestyle changes.

But I read some doctors blogs and so often they note that relatively few patients will follow the recommendations.

That combined with the fact that over the years that many things that where thought to be bad and now or neutral or even good and vice versa I can see where some doctor might not try to make lifestyle recommendations.

But the next time ask your doctor, not in an accusatory way, but rather indicate that you are willing to make lifestyle changes. See how he responds.
