Hi Djbnyc,


I hope your physical went well yesterday and your blood pressure was within normal. For future reference, 24 hours is not enough time for diet and lifestyle changes to impact blood pressure. Also, here is a post on white coat hypertension you may want to review:

I've been told that I have white coat or office high blood pressure, is there anything I should do?


All the best,
