Re: Anyone here with Renal Artery Stenosis

Amanda -
Wow! I've had renal artery stenosis for nearly 25 years and never met anyone else who's had it! Yes, it does cause high blood pressure, and it's usually slightly more difficult to treat than the kind of high BP caused by ageing. It doesn't respond much to weight loss or exercise. I'm on calcium channel blockers (Verapamil), and they work great!

Post back with more details...would love to chat with you.
