I'm taking 80 mg of Diovan (Valsartan). My kidney doctor prescribed this knowing of my liver issues and he did do some research to determine a medication that was 'easier' on the liver.
I take Losartan and my doctor said it's not hard on the liver.
I slow down and take deep, slow breaths, exhaling completely
I don't have a prob with blood pressure but at times I have changed my BP 20 points simply by using this method - BP was high because I was nervous or late o just ran up a hill
I know it sounds hippy-dippy but slow, mindful breathing can change your blood pressure a lot
I agree. However, there are medical conditions that can cause high BP and you usually don't know it's high. I can occasionally tell when it gets close to 200 and at that point mindfulness and deep breathing don't really help. I hate taking bp meds and have tried most of them and quit most of them but it finally got to the point where I accepted take them or die. Losartan is the least annoying of them.
Did you see the news about the statins? They are sometimes used for high blood pressure but now they think it helps not only the liver but treatment success albeit it has not been proven. That seems the safest way to treat your BP issues. How is your salt intake?
