Age:

Blood Pressure:
 170/90 mmHg

"I've started making lots of changes. I began my water aerobics class, and it's going great. Whoever thought that I'd look forward to getting in a pool and waving my arms around? I've lost a few pounds, and that makes me feel better too. But, every once in a while, I feel dizzy when I stand up. I think it may be my high blood pressure medication. I'm going to talk with my doctor about that right away."
