Buying a home will shave off ten pounds EASY! God knows what it does for BP and cardiac health though.
Anyhoo, it's pretty clear that my only monotherapy would be a diuretic. So now it comes down to that or NOTHING. If I were convinced that there's no damage from a half lifetime of thiazides, I'd have no problems but alas, it's not likely the case.
I'll continue to work for that NOTHING. (Well, except for my mother's milk: Lipitor!)
