I’m a 61 year old (Italian American) if that is significant, male. I’m 5-8 about 156 lbs and in pretty good shape for my age. I was regularly on a treadmill and stationary biking. About a year and a half ago I joined a gym and have been weight training 3-4 times per week. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure a few years ago. Since then I’ve been on 10mg of lisinopril and my BP has been under control. Also for a few years I have been taking daily cialis 5mg for well, you know.
Recently my BP is starting to rise again to readings like 147-97-ish, to around 160-95-ish.
I go to the doc for a check every 6 months and will now go back in 3 months.
A while ago I read some good things about beets and BP and have been consuming them regularly. I slacked off recently due to holidays and whatnot and was wondering if that it may have been why my BP started rising again.
I’m just wondering what to expect if those numbers are accurate and the being back on the beets is not helping. Raise in meds? Possibility of (gulp) stopping my cialis?
