Healthy weight, healthy diet, healthy exercise -

makes the difference...


Why bother?
Regular Exercise heals and maintains the health of blood vessels and this can prevent stokes, heart attacks and kidney failure. This needs to be done with a healthy diet.


Regular Exercise helps reduce blood pressure, a major cause of kidney failure, even for those whose kidneys are failing for other reasons as well.


But why can't you just take the pills which 'control' these things?
Of course they help and they might even be life saving, but they often do not protect you sufficiently from the later complications of blood vessel disease if poor lifestyle continues to degrade the blood vessels.


It's not so much how well the pills can make your Blood Pressure numbers look good - see this video....
