I have specialized in difficult high blood pressure for over 50 years.
I have published over 250 papers in the broad area of human high blood pressure with a focus on the physiology of blood pressure control systems and role of dietary salt in improving high blood pressure.
I specialize in difficult to control high blood pressure and have had great success in using the DASH Diet eating plan to get BP to goal without medications and as a way to lower the need for medications.
Primary Aldosteronism (PA) is HBP specialty. This is a cause of high blood pressure in at least 10% of all with high blood pressure. Because the most common type of HBP meds do not work in PA many patients have what is called drug resistant HTN. Getting the correct diagnosis and treatment rapidly controls BP in a few weeks in most with PA.
I have published that the best way to get your BP down with DASH is to use Cronometer and have your medical team measure the sodium (Na) and potassium (K) in your urine to get your BP and your DASH eating plan to a healthy goal.
