I know I have been obessed with blood pressure recently so I was researching. Ok , this is scary.. it also says at the start his BP was 140/100, the bottom number was an omen. that bothers me because my bottom number is always high. Is a high diastolic mean we all end up like him?

I read he had malignant hypetension. I realize they didn't have the medications they have today, but still people don't do very well if they have hypertesnion in current times.

I don't think diet and exercise would have helped him much if his BP readings were 300/160 obviously there is more to hypertension that people realize.

Heart dissease;cancer and many others were also a death notice pretty much then. Untreat or poorly treated blood pressure can be damaging just the same how but itis treatable by not just medicine but life changes.
