might seem small but so over the moon !!

So I saw my renal doctor yesterday.. He was very impressed with my weight loss! My kidney function has improved slightly and I now have a sitting bp of 120/70! This is a huge thing for me I am normally 150/95 and on 2 different tablets! He also did the blood pressure standing and laying down! He thinks I have postural hypotension meaning my BP drops when I stand! YAHOOOOOOO this is exciting as its a clear sign that I need to reduce the meds!!! so he has halved one tablet but believes that I will be off it in 3 months if I keep loosing! Then the other tablet can start to be reduced! I walked out of there feeling like I'd won the lottery!


Happy Friday all xxx

Just left a comment on your last post. Congrats on getting the BP down. That is my goal. Mine has been going down but I want to get off the drugs. Good incentive to get healthy before the baby making. Although you can still practice!

Wow - you are making huge progress in improving your health.

Money can't buy the gift you have given yourself and your future babies. You must be so proud of yourself!
