  • A Beta Blocker for Blood Pressure Control?

    I have been telling my doctor for quite some time now, that I think my pulse rate is too high, and my blood pressure erratic and too high at times. I was taking an ACE inhibitor, Ramipril, as well as a water pill (diuretic), Indapamide. I seem to suffer from the opposite of the "white coat effect", and my BP is always good when he checks it

  • Re: Does being uninsured, raise your mortality risks?

    NMC, look, I really have no interest in what you eat and what your reasons are. It is your health and you can do anything you like. What I take exception to are statements that defy the laws of science. They set my crap detector off. You can go cherry pick all the studies that you want, but I have my own personal evidence that a heart healthy (low fat

  • Re: Does being uninsured, raise your mortality risks?

    NMC, I think you have a serious case of denial of the benefits of modern health care, and live in an artificial world constructed of cherry picked paper walls. "Heart disease mortality has been declining since the 1960s, but is much higher than the beginning of the 20th century." Not sure where you got your stats, but people only lived 48

  • Re: Lack of Weight Loss

    I'm an engineer and love formulas. However, they at best estimate the real world. The real world, your body and bathroom scales are telling you that your actual calorie intake and calorie needs are currently in balance. You are not negative anything, or you would be losing weight. Most people should lose weight slowly at 1500 calories per day. Are

  • Re: Lack of Weight Loss

    I'm 5'9" and 1200 calories a day is what I use to lose weight. I combine that with one hour 7 days a week full out cardio. According to the exercise bike I use, the exercise consumes 700 calories, or less if I'm not so fit, and can't keep the pace. If your current diet is 1800 calories and you are just maintaining weight, then your

  • Re: Lack of Weight Loss

    For your height a normal weight reduction diet would be closer to 1200 calories per day. Your body is the one that gets the final say in how many calories it needs. And, your body has no problem communicating that to you through the bathroom scales ;-)

  • Re: Glucose levels

    Readings over 100 from a home meter don't technically count. However, a lab test over 100 is technically pre-diabetes. I don't think anything actually turns on it. For example if you were a commercial driver, I don't believe it counts until you are over 127, and technically full diabetic. A good doctor is just going to use the numbers just

    Or, I could have said that since you claim there is a growing consumption of refined sugar, and carbohydrates, that the reduction of heart disease, and increased life expectancy is a result of the general population consuming more carbohydrates... Or, that it could be because the "Establishment" promotes eating a heart healthy diet, and people

    [quote user="beaner293"] 1. What should my b/s levels be, both before and after meals? 2. At what point should I talk to an Endo? 3. When should I expect to go on insulin? (Dr says I'm a long way off from that) 4. When I get my next blood work-up, anything I should request the doc to check? (c-peptide, etc)[/quote] 1. Ideally under 100
