Anyway......how's everyone's BP these days? My internist retired. The first new one I tried decided that my heart rate was too fast and so she changed my meds - after 6 years. The new stuff not only did NOT lower my heart rate but it didn't do as good a job with my BP (BP was still OK but not as low as it had been; it's generally around 115/75 - with the meds, of course). I was really ticked at myself afterwards for having let her talk me into a new med!!I did NOT like her so I tried another doctor who is both an internist and a cardiologist. I had already gone back to the atenolol and he confirmed that it was doing a fine job. He thought my heart rate was OK. The first doctor I tried took blood and urine without telling me in advance that she was going to do that. AND she never notified me of the results. I had the second doctor get the results and while some of the results were fairly meaningless (because it was NOT a fasting test), the other ones were all good. But he's going to do a fasting test on my next visit.I've lost a few pounds - not much but every little bit helps (plus as my old internist used to say -- any loss is better than a gain!)I'm still not doing any regular exercise although I know I should be. But I do go up and down the subway steps and walk to and from the subway, so that's better than nothing.Hope everyone else is doing OK too.Christina
