Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, August 7, Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr Lamb What does, one do with a hvperten- patient who cannot tolerate the drugs9 This is my fourth doctor in beven >ears and the tirst three just lost interest because I could not take what thev prescribed I m allergic to all medications it seems The last time my pressure was taken it was 220 110 which is high but it was And so it goes first up and then down but never normal I m reallv anxious to know what would do with me I in 69 but do not 'move old or feel that old and never have looked age Dear Reader Fluctuating blood pressure is not so harm ful as persistently elevated blood pressure It also means that arteries are still tlexible even at 69 No doubt the higher readings vou have are related to stress Some people have a rise in blood pressure which they can t control just from having the pressure taken Your reading of 150 90 for a woman of 69 is realh rather good What would I do with vou9 First if vou were overweight I d surelv insist that you get nd of anv excess fat you might have under the skin Even a small amount of fat under the skin can contribute to elevated blood pressure Good living habits that can control blood pressure are far better than medicines when such a program works In fact for vears I have suggested that the tirst step in treating most cases of high blood pressure was to adjust the liv- ing habits and then if necessan medicines i_uuiu uc used later Second I would want >ou to limit vour salt intake I might even be fairly strict about this if vou were unable to tolerate medicines used to eliminate excess salt through the kidnevs Just avoiding salt in cooking and all foods prepared with lots of salt would do a lot to help decrease the salt in- take sufficiently for most people Then since vou have labile blood pressure I would want to be sure vou were not taking anv stimulants That means vou would be asked to stop coftee entirely why take tranquilizers it vou drink go pills' And vou should stop all drinks that contain caffeine including tea colas and cocoa if you use them Of course smoking would be prohibited If your blood pressure was fairly well controlled on such a program within limits that are pretty good for your age, I would be inclined to be happy and reassure you that with pressures at those levels you were doing fine I would hope that such a program might keep vour pressures nearer the 150 90 level Also I would like to encourage you to do a reasonable amount of daily walking If your pressures remained high I might consider using a tranquilizer to help knock off the peak values and after that would think about using stronger medicines but only if vour pressure was per- sistently high enough to make me think you really needed medicine Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P O Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N Y 10019.
