Hypertension is typically a "life long" problem. That being said it is VERY manageable by diet and exercise, in some patients simply salt restriction helps greatly. Otherwise medication is quite effective with minimal ronni side effects. However you present with a unique issue in that you recently delivered a baby. How recently did you deliver?
