Normal decrease per week in bp after exercise and diet.

Q: What is a normal decrease in high blood pressure numbers per week if I am working out and eating better?  Currently 141/86.

A: It is impossible to know what reduction in blood pressure will occur on a weekly basis for any given individual who makes life style changes.  It is well known that a regular exercise program and a healthy diet help with blood pressure control.  You are encouraged to keep exercising and eating right even if you don’t see a lowering of your blood pressure.
