Over the last couple of mornings, when I got up to check my vitals, I think I had a nice surprise. Usually, my BP had been running like 120 + over 70 +. The last two mornings, it was 99/68 and 108/74 respectively. I have been on blood pressure medication since 2006, when I was diagnosed. I am hoping that it stays on the low side so that I can keep from having to take one more medication.

Nice numbers. Is there anything that you can attribute the drop to like less sodium or more exercise? I've been running about 90/60 ever since my pancreas transplant so don't have to worry about meds right now. I know how you feel though about being burned out about taking pills. The fewer the better.

That's awesome Cisco. What BP med(s) are you on?

Cisco, That is wonderful. Maybe you are like wine you get "better with age".

Good News. It's very possible that if it stays that way your doc will remove/decrease your BP meds.

That's good Cisco. My bp went down to normal right after my transplant. One less pill to take!
