  • I developed High Blood Pressure the day I delivered my Son. It has been high ever since & I only gained 25 lbs during the pregnancy and weigh less now than before I got pregnant. I was told that this can happen and it has been 3 years and I am taking Avalide for the HBP and it works great. No high cholesterol yet!

  • Diagnosed at 18. I was about 115lbs at the time. Mine is mostly from heredity. I tried diet & exercise & it only dropped 7pts, "not significant at all" from what the Dr. said.
