Went to the doc today for my checkup. Very pleased with the 50 pound weight loss but for some reason my BP has Jumped to 160 over 90. HE tested it a second time and it had come down to 134 over 90 but still high. Sigh, stay on the BP meds I guess. I did have an awful day at work so I am thinking that is why it was high

What metabolism? I am able to eat just about anything, and keep it off. Same with my friend, he said he can't put on weight, and he weighs about 145. And, he's 15 y.o.

Spice - Although your BP was a bit elevated at the doctor's office, I wouldn't get too worked up about it. It is fairly common for a patient's BP to elevate at a doctor's office due to anxiety or even perhaps a long wait before being seen. I did medical transcription for 22 yrs. and many of the doctors would dictate the patient's elevated BP, but then comment that it was just something to "watch" for a while, and not immediately medicate. Just thought I would pass this along.

thanks. I am on BP meds for about 10-12 years now. This is the first time it has been this high on a visit. I think it is because I had a really bad day at work. Hope so.

Any way, thanks for the reassurance

Spice, sorry your BP was high. I have "white coat" syndrome. Mine sky rockets at the doctors office, and at the gym when I am weighed and fat tested and measured. It's quite funny, in that there is a guy who normally does it at the gym, and it's always too high, but when the girl at the gym does it, its normal!!!

Do you ever do the 24 hour monitoring? That's what they had to do with my dad and my mum, there BP is elevated, but it's much worse in the surgery than at home. My dad is particularly frustrating, he's an alcoholic, and as he drinks during the day, his blood pressure gets much better, so he feels he is quite justified in keeping up his alcohol intake. Ah well, he must be doing something right, as he's now 80!!!
