Stress also can contribute to high cholesterol levels as well so get that checked too.

As far as my boys and raising them; I used love and not the tough love people talk about. They don't talk back to me and know they can tell me anything and I will listen. Don't make them afraid of you. It's all about respect.

Great advice. So, any thoughts on doing all the things u advised and still testing 149/110? I can't even find this result on blood pressure charts.

If you are not overweight, you are exercising regularly, you have cut back on the salt, and your pressures are still elevated at home over multiple readings on different days, you need to ask your doctor about starting medication. If you are significantly overweight, Consider medication, but even a small weight loss may make it possible to eventually come off the med.
