Hi All, I am astounded so please give me your thoughts. I have high Cholesterol 8.1, and refused to take statins untill I am given time to get it down by diet and excercise, I am still working on this. This is opinions needed for my husband. My husband has PD, and takes quite a few meds for his condition, some of the meds can cause blood pressure levels to rise and fall. When he recently went for a blood pressure check he was high, on second check normal, third check 170/90, it was decided there and then he must have tablets for high blood pressure which he started yesterday. He had some bloods done yesterday as well for the usual things like we do. He was unhappy yesterday to think along with all his meds for PD he now has to take more for blood pressure. So you can imagine my feelings when he received a phone call this morning to say his blood tests show a high cholesterol level and he must come to the surgury now to collect the meds for his high Cholesterol ???????
The doctors surgery is a 12 mile round trip and hes not in the best of health, plus the cold weather, so off he goes panic stricken that he has to collect them straight away. He is so upset as he now has to take even more meds. Here is the part I don't understand? please tell me if I am missing something, but my husbands reading is ONLY 5.5 ????????????? I wish mine was that low!!!!!!!! I feel annoyed that it seems no thought or consideration is given to the large amount of meds he is already on. Any opinions, advice etc would be most welcome xxx
