Out of Curiosity....

Is there anyone here that’s older 40+ that’s had hypertension at an early adult hood, or teenage years through life? If so what’s your age now and what helps your bp? Did lvh develope?

I had borderline hypertension as a late teenager, and afterward have been prescribed BP lowering meds for the past 25-30 years. Maintaining a healthy weight works wonders. I don't know what "lvh" is so I can't comment on that.

How many meds do you take? What’s your bp run now with medicine?
120's over 80 or so, take only one Rx (lisinopril) and have been taking that one for at least 25 years.

Yes. I started taking meds at the early age of 8 years old. Started off with water pills now at 41 I have 4 more meds added. and I don't have IVH but was in fear due to headaches.

For the past several months, my BP has been very high and nothing worked. Doc prescribed a tiny water pill. It's working like a miracle. And it doesn't bother me and all. My BP is great!

I was diagnosed with high BP in my 30s. Been taking meds ever since. In the last 5 years it's gone up higher. But like I said, the water pill is doing wonders.

Hello  I was in my early to mid 40's when I go high BP. I am 62 now.  I take Medicine, Watch Salt  and Exercise at least 4-5 days a week. That helps keep it in check
