Yes, I love the apricots and low sodium V8.

Oh I am off kilter all the way around right now due to the holdays and busy-ness I guess. I will get back to basics on Monday.

Which book do you use? I purchased the newer Thomas Moore, MD book, but there is an older one. A yahoo forum I am on keeps saying to start with chapter 9. My book is different. Need to get the old one, I guess.

I have PA. Started having high blood pressure when I was 26. Found out in my 60's that I have PA and was recommended the DASH diet.

I am not sure if the team was developed to address AKA.
I am glad you joined the team. What things do you have problems following?
Do you like the items you are currently eating to get your potassium?

In December 2011, I was diagnosed with Primary Aldosteronism, (AKA hyperaldosteronism, AKA Conn's Disease). I am an active 66 year old and have had hypertension since age 26. I am trying to follow DASH, but have trouble following to the exact. I just don't use salt and haven't for years and try to eat more potassium, like dried apricots and low sodium V8 juice.

Is this why the team was started? High aldosterone levels cause hypertension.

Would love to chat about this.
