My blood pressure has been high all week, what can I do??

I admit I've been eating lots of salted sunflower seeds, beef jerky and Korean ramen which are high in salt.

My blood pressure is 165/110 all week even after I took my medication. Do I just double my medication or will it go down when all the salt is out of my system?

    STOP EATING SALTY FOODS and drink tons of water.

    The salt intake isn't causing it. Apparently, you've been washing those foods down with something other than water.

    Your choice of snacks (although they may appear to be unhealthy but really aren't that bad), is indicative of an unhealthy lifestyle and so it can be assumed that your choice of beverages also follows this unhealthy lifestyle and thus would include that you regularly use soft drinks or some other non-water beverage.

    Having said that, your blood pressure is up because you're dehydrated.

    This from a logical point of view would be to stop taking medication or a high intake of salt or both.

    Don't change your medication.

    Cut out the salty foods, and see what that does to your blood pressure.

    Report this experience, including the food choices and your BP readings to your doctor. You may need an adjustment to your program. At minimum, you need to be aware that you are very salt-sensitive.

    drink a LOT of water to help flush the salt out, and cut out on the salt
