Salt Or Medication, That Is the Question
Today, on my doctors orders, I attended a blood pressure clinic/class. My blood pressure has been in the threshold range for a while now and my doctor thinks I should go on medication. I have been reluctant to start down that path. So what am I supposed to do instead? Exercise - good. I do, usually. Lose weight - OK, I would like to, and can try harder. Give up salt - no, not OK. I can not imagine not salting my food when I cook it, and having the salt shaker on the table as well. Food without salt is not worth eating. Oh, that might help with the weight loss, though. Hmmmm. I'm thinking if it comes to a choice, the pill might just win over the loss of my salt shaker.
