Hi. I am hoping to see the opinions of others.
I am 42 years old. Earlier this year I weighed 434 pounds, and I am down to 384 pounds. So I am still grossly overweight.
I have had high BP for years. I was recently told I am prediabetic. These two things are the primary reason for motivated weight loss.
Due to chest pain, my doctor gave me a stress test which showed some "hardening" but nothing of concern. My BP during the test got up to over 190/90 which again no one was concerned with. This took place in June of this year.
Since June my BP top number is not coming down at all, but the bottom number is. I average about 140/70. My RHR is also way down from roughly 70 to 58, and at night 50. These numbers concern me. I'd be happy to answer any other questions I can about information I didn't include, and I am talking with my Dr about this who, based on the stress test, is not worried.
My question for here is, would you be concerned about your heart in my situation? If so, how concerned? Is the RHR and low bottom number BP with high top concerning? Is my Dr blowing me off?
