    I would be very concerned about zapping nerves going to my kidneys or the like.
    I expect this to have some bad long term effects on at least some people.

    I do not believe all hypertension is caused by the kidneys anyway.

    and notice approved for treatment resistant pations. A last ditch effort it would seem.

    Well, yes, but so are procedures for otherwise untreatable seizures.

    any improvement in the hypertension problem is most welcomed, but with a high price like that, not all people can afford it... other giant pharmaceutical company should support this project... make it less expensive to laymen people :-(

    Proper diet combined with regular exercise doesn't cost an extra penny.

    This is just for people who can't be treated by any other means. Losing weight, healthy diet and exercise don't work for them. Blood pressure medication doesn't work for them. They are treatment resistant.

    Shoot, now I'm going to go take my blood pressure.

    .............

    Oh, hell, it was high. 149 over 78. I'll wait a few minutes and check it again. Blood pressure fluctuates constantly. I don't usually get readings that high. At least I know I'm not having a heart attack at the moment. : )

    Update: Did deep breathing and ate dark chocolate. It was down to 125 over 76 last time I checked. Whew, that's better.
