    Welcome to the forum and thank you for your post. I am sorry that you are experincing high blood pressure. I am not an expert or a doctor but I would like to tag or experts in this post so that they can provide more insight @Menopauseorjustme and @Giada Frontino.

    I was recently diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with having high blood pressure but I think it was something I could have eaten or maybe to much salt and not enough water I think elevated mine because today I went to my GP and it was normal.

    Please feel free to look around our website for more resources.

    Dear @Rnsweet49

    Blood pressure can rise for a variety of different causes. Your GP will help you choose the best treatment for you and can also recommend specific lifestyle changes that will certainly improve your blood pressure and heart health. A certified Nutritionist will also aid in choosing foods that can reduce your blood pressure and reduce the chances of developing complications from this condition.

    I hope this helps and look forward to hearing on how you do.

    Kind regards,

    Good morning.

    As @Monica @Giada Frontino have said a raise in blood pressure can be for many reasons. The most important thing is that your GP is monitoring this.

    Low Oestrogen levels during menopause affect our blood vessels which can lead to a raise in our blood pressure. This can be a significant contributing factor.

    Whether your blood pressure will return to " normal" is hard to say, it is about finding the cause ( if you can), monitoring your pressure, making healthy lifestyle chooses and taking medications your GP will prescribe.

    Please let us know how things go.

    Best wishes

    Diane Porterfield Bourne.
