Woohoo! A Good Dr Visit

Saturday, February 23, 2013

So, I went back to the cardiologist on friday for the ultrasound of my heart and kidney...This was a really cool thing to see...I wish I could have a copy of it....Everything is fine, they found nothing wrong with either. The dr says it is a combination of genetics(most of my family has bbp issues) the wrong food choices and my weight. I have been cleared to start exercising again and I joined WW... they had a buy 1 month, get 1 month free so I figured it wouldnt hurt since food is a big challenge for me....Between there and here I should get great support...I do have to continue taking my meds for now and check my bp once a week. If there is no issues, then I go back in 6 months for a check up. My bp has dropped to 138/90....dramatic decrease in a week which resulted in headaches and tiredness. Dr said this was normal...So, I am back in full force and am determined to succeed!!

    emoticon that is great news! Glad you are doing better. You can ask the doctors offices' for copies of the written reports of any test you have performed. I like to keep mine for my records. If there is a TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) chapter near you they are really great for support and cheap. You follow whatever meal plan you are on, they're good for support and accountability. WW has alot of of success I have read!
