    Hi Folks,
    My husband has been on the LCHF diet for the last 2 1/2 weeks. He is aiming to lose 3 stone and try and get his blood pressure under control - it is currently 192/110! He is a resistant hypertension case as the blood pressure drugs only seem to lower it minimally and if the GP ups the dose at all he gets severe side effects. He is currently on a minimal dose of Lorstatan but this is casuing extreme fatigue and aches. As well as the blood pressure he is prediabetic, has cornoary heart disease and an enlarged prostate which is the only thing under control at the moment..
    Has anyone used the LCHF diet with blood presure reduction in mind? How quickly did you see a reduction?
    Obviously we are extremely aware these numbers are scary and he is doing everything he can to reduce them. He walks everyday for an hour and half, does not smoke (stopped 18mths ago), takes various supplements garlic, omega, potassium etc. Really our hope is on the diet and the weight loss as we feel our GP is only offering more drugs which do not seem to help.
    Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

    Hi Louise,
    I'm Type 1 (35 years) and had to go onto high blood pressure meds in my early 20's (I'm now 46). I was on the meds for over 20 years and during that period nothing lowered my blood pressure, not even when I lost 4 stone in weight (low cal, low fat diet) and started exercising. In April this year I started the ketogenic diet and have been on it ever since. After 3 months of following the keto way of eating, my doctor had to take me off my blood pressure meds because I started suffering from dizzy spells and after monitoring my blood pressure every day I realised it was because my blood pressure had dropped so much it was actually bordering on being too low. I was gobsmacked!! Now, 3 months later after not having to take a single pill since, my blood pressure remains healthy and toward the lower end of normal. I can only put this down to the keto diet, but hey, I'm no medical expert so who knows!
    Everyone is obviously different and I'm not saying the LCHF diet will help your husband with his blood pressure, but I just wanted to give you a little bit of hope. Stick with it, and fingers crossed for some good news!
