Re: Nutrition and Cancer (Cancer Prevention)

Georgia,

She is a cancer survivor and she is trying to live a life style that will lessen the likelyhood of reoccurance. The low blood pressure due to low sodium is a second issue. My main concern is that she feels (because this is what the doctor told her) that she has to eat crap to keep her blood pressure from dropping. I feel that this just can't be, but it's her heart so I don't want to encourage a lifestyle-eating change that could hurt her. And I asked, there's not a set amount of sodium she should be eating. It's just, "high salt."

Pat

I've got low blood pressure, hasn't caused me issues. My mom got yelled at when she was pregnant with me because she was a nurse at the time, and she would sometimes have blood pressure so low that she'd faint. The doctor on shift at the time would always chew her out, but she couldn't do anything about it.

Hers has been as low as I think 80/50, or 85/50... mine I've seen it down to 90/55 if I remember correclty, maybe 90/60.
