I am a healthy active 74 year ld woman except for my chronic high BP and I mean high, today it was 180/105. I cannot find a medicine that will keep it under control with suffering for debilitating side effects that reduce the quaility of my life. I dont know waht to do and the fear of a stroke etd is giving me anxiety attack which of course do not help. My most recent BP med was clonodine which did a great job but reduced my heart rate to 49, I was so tired i couldn’t get off the couch and this for someone who does yoga, ti chi, strength training and Zumba. I am in tears right now, I had plans to go to the movies and lunch with a friend but cancelled because I had so much pressure in my head I was scared to go out.
I am very sensitive to medicine and even supplements, can anyone help me??
I am a type 2 diabetic who just read at 575 blood sugar....eeeeks is right
The nestle coconut creamer in my coffee spikes my sugar over 500 just a fyi
Thank you for all of the tips I have found lemon water or cucumber ice water to help
also start adding fresh garlic to your meats and pepper no other salts or stuff and it helps too. The green tea works and being japanese I found the fresh green tea virses tea bag is much quicker in lowering the blood sugar.
I lost 50 pounds and thot that was enuff to ignore my levels...boy was I wrong
I have had 17 surgeries so don't have much activity til I got that reading...it sure motivated me to get my hind end off the couch and start walking. even jogging laying down in the hot tub anything!!!
I am 51 and thot I was dying didn't know what to say to the kids, started getting rid of stuff and downsizing which was a good thing....
all because I quit checking my blood sugar and had ended up in dangerous waters.....
I feel more alive now and a lot less depressed or worried that I am dying...altho I could have if my blood sugar went up any higher....
So just cuz you lose weight does not mean your diabetis willnecessarily disappear!!!!
