By Rasih Bensan on April 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
The book High Blood Pressure at your fingertips gives good information about all aspects of what is known and not known about different types of high blood pressure. It also explains very well how the human heart and circulatory system work. It defines and explains the importance of controlling cholesterol, tryglicerides levels etc. of lifesytle changes comprising exercise, proper nutrition, quitting smoking, reducing caffeine and alcohol intake beside drug treatment. Moreover it is very easily readable in question and answer format.Therefore I recommend that everybody who needs to take his / her blood pressure under control read it carefully. But don't let this book be your only source of information. Because it promotes drug treatment too much. I am not a medical expert but I feel this bias in this book because of other good books I read also about the subject. The authors of this book that I am reviewing now do not rule out treatment without drugs. They mention the need to exercise and proper diet and describe the conditions under which they think drug treatment is the inevitable method. They also claim that once a person is on high blood pressure treatment drugs it is very unlikely and rare that he / she can ever switch to forms of treatment without drugs ; they are stuck with drugs for life. However, some other good books are more optimistic about possibilities of non - drug tretament and even claim that going off drugs carefully under doctor supervision by changing lifestyle is possible in 80 % of the cases ; most people do not need to be stuck for life with blood pressure lowering drugs provided that they make the necessary lifestyle changes under doctor supervision.Read more ›
