Discussions that mention k-dur

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Hi everybody! Today i went to see my endo and my dietitian. I got copies of my lipid profile. In previous posts i complained that hctz caused my high glucose and cholesterol problems. My gp and my nw cardio drs thought i was mistaken.

Well, for the last 2 or 3 mos i started cutting the hctz (25mg) in half. My cholesterol went from 298 to 243. I knew it was the hctz just like i always complained.

This is a happy day. I plain on insisting next week that my cardio help me find a bp med that will lower my bp without causing other health problems. She prescribed lasix 20 mg, k-dur potassium and pravigard. I haven't started any of these meds bcuz im afraid.
