How Diet Pills Affect Your Heart

Laura, who had a family history of heart disease, says she put off visiting a cardiologist, in part because she’s worried that the blood pressure medicine she might be prescribed could make her gain five or 10 pounds. She also reveals she takes diet pills, which concerns The Doctors. They challenge her to stop taking the pills because they can increase blood pressure, increasing the risk of heart disease.
