Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 years ago):
I have had hypertension for 34 years and have used all families of medications. I currently still have elevated readings- 145/68; worst in mornings. I just developed diabetes 3 months ago. I suspect Sleep apnea may be a factor, but two sleep studies failed since I never fell asleep. My family history includes HBP, sleep apnea, and diabetes type 2. No family member has died under the age of 77 despite the medical conditions. I exercise 5 days weekly and am on a modified low-salt diet.
From this study (6 years ago):
I just reduced thyroxine from 100 mcg to 88 mcg. I took 100 mcg for 30 years. I only take Prempro every third day trying to weane off of it -- I couldn't do it all at once, having taken it for 20 years. I took Celebrex recently for only about 2 weeks. The fatigue and hot flashes have increased in the last week.
