Diagnosed in January of 1885, believe it started at least 2 years prior to that.

I've had high BP for.... to long. About half my life, I think. Over about 17 years. Don't like it. Been battling it since I first found out. It's slowly getting higher over the years, even though I've been slowly losing weight, over the years.

I have lots of side affects from all meds. I'm frustrated, Doc is frustrated, DH is frustrated. So???

About 8 years or so. It is in my family. My brothers (who aren't over weight at all) both have HBP. I hope by losing weight I can bring it down but I doubt I will ever get off HBP medicines. My mom has had it since her mid-fifties as well, but she is 86 now! She has never exercised and has always been about 50 pounds over weight . . . so there is hope for me!

Ten years and it has become worse. I am hoping to take off lbs and exercise. The exercise brings it down.

I work in a women's hospital and we get a lot of women who stay with us for months because of PIH. I hope that one day someone figures out what causes it. It's great business for the lab where I work, but not so good for the moms and babies.

There was much rejoicing!

I know my mom had uncontrolled high blood pressure ( she had major issues with allergies to medicaations) and she had a massive heart attack along with a stroke in her late 60's. I started on blood pressure meds around age 43 but the problems started at 40 when my mom died and my weight kept going higher.
I really believe that for a lot of us weight and meds are linked. Of course there is a genetic component and a lot of thin people are also on meds. In my case, I've put on a tremendous amount of weight over the last 12 years and also stopped excercing and I am now living the results. AND that's why I'm here.

I had pregnancy-induced-hypertension with my 2nd and 3rd kids but no need for meds. The funny thing is that PIH can lead to a low-birth-weight baby. My third baby was 9 lbs, 3 oz and that was with me being induced at least a week early! I teased my midwife - I'm glad I had the PIH or he would've been a horse!!
About 2 years after he was born I started on BP meds, so that's been about 8 or 9 years. My father died at the age of 43 and his family has a long cardiac history, so I don't know if I'm going to be able to get completely off of them.

I was borderline starting around 15 years ago but my BP was mostly okay if I hadn't been running around like a nut case up until a little over 4 years ago. That's when I was forced to go on meds because it was alarmingly high.

There was much rejoicing!

Started when I got pregnant with my daughter 22 years ago. Went up to four medications. Since I got serious about losing the weight in September 2010 I got take off one and was on 3. Since October the doctor has cut them twice and when I went on Friday he took me completely off one. Now I am on 2 for my hbp. Hoping that with a continued weight loss it will be down to none.

I've been on Hyzaar for about 10 years now. My meds were reduced when I lost about 20 pounds but then I regained the weight and now I am back when I started. But don't despair,
it would appear that weight and high blood pressure meds are related, so join us, and loose the weight,.
Lots of luck,
Naomi

Since it caused me to have a hemorrhagic stroke eight and a half years ago. Been on BP meds ever since but I'm still hoping if I lose enough weight I can get off them.

This April will be 10 years. As long as I am this heavy, I cannot stop the meds. I have tried to wean myself off of them, but my pressure goes sky-high.
