Hi. I started paleo / primal 2 years ago to see if it would help my asthma (it is virtually non existent now so THAT worked!)
But the asthma clinic had tested my blood pressure and at 140 / 110 they reckoned statins would be a good plan. Well, I didn't want to go that route and sure enough, after 6 months of paleo eating - quite strict - BP had come down to around 120 / 90.
After 12 months, the asthma b=nurse was really pleased with a reading of 120 / 85.
Two months ago it came out at 110 / 80. And today - 98 / 73.
I am a 59 year old guy, 6 feet tall, 144 pounds weight. BNot thin - just fine bones and not much in the way of muscle - really couldn't do much exercise for most of my life because of the asthma, but am now walking miles daily and even starting to swim again!
But is this sort of BP too low?
