Living a healthy lifestyle, but still has high blood pressure.

Q: I’m a male who eats a healthy diet, workouts regularly, lost over 50 lbs since being diagnosed with high bp and am not stressed. No one in my family is in shape or eats right, yet they have good bp. Why can’t I come off of my meds? (lisinopril hctz 20/12.5)

A: You did not mention your current blood pressure. If you are in excellent control since
your 50 pound weight loss, it is possible you may be able to get off your medicine. You
should discuss this with your doctor. It sounds like your family members are lucky or
perhaps just younger. Being overweight and out of shape takes a toll on the body. It is
just a matter of time. To learn more about the consequences of being overweight go to this page on the Obesity in America website.
