Hypertension and age
« on: January 01, 2013, 09:10:34 am »
I'm toying with the idea of re-pursuing a career in aviation. It's unlikely that my wife will ultimately let me do it, but for now I'm trying to find out if there's any other limitations preventing me and one of those could be the Class 1 medical.
 A possibly sticking point is hypertension. It runs in my family and while I have it under control without medication (I was on medication for awhile, but a combination of exercise and dieting brough it down) , I worry if it's something that gets worse with age?.
 I'm 42, btw.
