Possible. That will be a decision made by your PCM and the Med Board if it gets to that. It'll certainly make you less likely to deploy to an austere environment.

It's possible to be discharged for "high BP" but usually one can get it under control with medication, dietary changes, and a good exercise regimen. Then if you maintain it in a normal level, they would have no reason to boot anyone.

Sure, having high blood pressure can sometimes be grounds for a medical discharge, depending on how it affects your ability to perform your duties and the potential risks involved. In my case, I faced similar issues and had to make some lifestyle adjustments to manage my blood pressure effectively. This included regular exercise, dietary changes, and monitoring my health closely under medical guidance.

Besides this I have been taking beet root for a while now for its health benefits. These gummies are a great way to consume beet root because they are very tasty. Though the texture and softness is a little different than what I am used to, these taste good so I will take them daily. This small addition has been helpful, and I continue to use them as part of my daily routine and helped me to maintain a good blood pressure.
