my bp check in.

Well it is 3 days without meds and after a day at work and a martini and a glass of wine with dinner my BP is 122/78. Looks like I'm doing good so far but I will not disillusion myself into thinking that I don't need meds until the 2nd week into this test. ..Lisa

Re: my bp check in.

Good Luck with no meds!!!! I want to know how it goes. It must feel nice to be able to have a couple of drinks & not feel like a ton of bricks hit you in the morning.....

Re: my bp check in.

I drink lots of water as well. If I even have 2 drinks at times like a jack & coke & a glass of wine, my stomach will feel like junk the next day, because of the meds. It feels like junk some days when I wake up even when I don't drink. B/P meds. are the worst!!!

Re: my bp check in.

Cholesterol meds are the worst and hbp meds are a close second for me.

Re: my bp check in.

Well off the meds since Monday and my bp all day today at rest has been 130/88. I guess it's starting to creep up. I will give it till tomorrow to see if it goes down. If it stays the same what should I do? Do you guys think that is high and worth taking meds for? If it goes any higher than I will go back on the Diovan hct and just have acceptance. I'm still going to try it till march without the zetia to see if my cholesterol is good without it..Let me know your thoughts..Thanks, Lisa

Re: my bp check in.

Moxie,

If it happens to me, I'm going to ride it out. An unmedicated 130/88 is just fine in my book.
I had a big salt day so tomorrow my numbers will be up there too, but I am going to run this trial til March come Hell or high water.

Re: my bp check in.

Moxie,

Have you tried Diovan without HCT? 130/88 is probably OK. But, straight Diovan will be most likely free of any side-effects. And, it might be all you really need.

Re: my bp check in.

Pal,

no I have not. I will ask my doc about it if I need to go back on the meds. I will check my BP all day today to see if it creeps up. I'm on my way to the gym this am. I am doing upper body and then running High intensity interval training for 2 miles. I'm curious to see if my BP goes thru the roof again. Thanks for the advice the least amount of meds I have to take the better . Right now my diovan has the hctz in it..Lisa

Re: my bp check in.

Well last night I started getting 140-145/88-92 after a day with salty cheese sauce TWICE and a day with just under 4 grams sodium (about 12 grams of salt if I still have a vague recollection of atomic weights???) All dutifully recorded for posterity. Hmmm, I wonder if MY posterity shows the weight gain?

Weight this morning was up a miserable squishy 2 pounds.
Oh lord, and an Indian all-you-can-eat-brunch at 1PM. I don't think I've EVER had a low salt Indian dish...well, maybe the Nan.

Well, if my kidneys still remember how they're SUPPOSED to work more salt IN should eventually equal more salt OUT. Steam room calls!
Starting tomorrow...HARD SALT REGULATION!
Reconstituting dry beans as I type so at least my daily bean soupl lunch will be salt free.

Re: my bp check in.

I just came back from the gym about 30 minutes ago and I took my BP and it is 130/88. I wonder if it will stay that way off the meds. Would you go on meds if it stayed that way? I know you guys said before that you thought that was an ok BP. I'm still holding out before going back on meds..Lisa

Re: my bp check in.

Better than I. I'm getting over 140/90 because I have been stupid with salt in both prepared and restaurant choices. I'll do better. I swear on my mother's hangnail.
