  • High Blood Pressure [hide all summaries]
    A study of nutritional therapy showed that over one-third of people who previously needed drug treatment for high blood pressure were able to adequately control their blood pressure with nutritional therapy alone.Several factors should be taken into account when considering whether your high blood pressure should be treated. One is the benefits of the treatment for your blood pressure, which vary significantly depending on how high it is, your age, and whether you have other risk factors such as high cholesterol or are a smoker or a diabetic, and whether you have had a heart attack, heart failure, a stroke, or have kidney damage. The other consideration is the risks or the adverse effects of the treatment, which will vary depending on what is being considered.
  • Potassium Supplementation [hide all summaries]
    Very few people actually need to take a potassium supplement or a potassium-sparing diuretic (amiloride, spironolactone, triamterene). If, however, you take digoxin, have severe liver disease, or take large doses of diuretics (water pills) for heart disease, eating a potassium-rich diet may not be sufficient to replace the potassium that you are losing. If you fall into one of these categories, it is very important for your doctor to precisely monitor and regulate the amount of potassium in your bloodstream.
