    Here's the one I have. It's been the most consistent/accurate one I've had. Not sure where to get them done it came from the VA but I'm sure you can find them somewhere. Hell it's probably cheap knowing the VA

    Yeah I had a wrist one and I threw it in the garbage. I could take a few reading back to back and they would be wildly different. I gave up hope on them after that. Can't recall the brand though because it's been quite a while.

    I would wait till BP is normal to blast again. You might want to even lower cruise dose to 100-150mg. I know but health is more important.


    If you have any questions or want an list, email RED BIRD at redsxript@ctemplar.com.
    This... I do 5 mg of C and 1 Carditone pill a day. I had similar numbers to yours, now Im always in prefect range (118/67), I very rarely go above 120/70, and if I do its slight,and after 3-4 coffees).

    I got an omron brand wrist reader and it is as consistent as any cuff I've ever owned. I paid up for it a little, but it might be one of those you get what you pay for deals, dunno.

    Your dystolic number is under 80 which is good. The fact that there is such a spread between your sys and dys numbers usually means you're receiving some type of stimulus (anxiety about the BP test, or being amped from training,etc) causing your BP to spike momentarily. Mine seems a little high at times on cycle but when I relax for 15-20 mins it goes down to 65-68/110-118.

I think it was 18.7 and she said the limit was 19.5.
    From my own experience, 18.7 and 19.5 hemoglobin are far too high. Both caused me headaches, and I felt like my head was going to explode when doing heavy things like squats.

    Lower it.

    Cut fat (seriously)

    Look into a prescription blood pressure medicine. I recommend telmisartan. I am not a doctor.

    Do all three. It works. I am not a scientist, but I am sharing my own personal experience with what actually works. The combination of all three seems to be magic. Good luck.

    I donated blood a week ago and I'm about to get bloodwork done in the next few days. I've been staying well hydrated and cut back some caffeine. Today when I woke up, my blood pressure was 128/78 so already much better.

    I want to pull blood work after donating to see where my hemocrit/hemoglobin sits before I start my next cycle.

    Thanks to everyone for the input. I'm just trying to play this safe at 37yo and relatively new to the game.

    Cialis will help. My guess losing a little more blood wouldn't hurt you. If you live in one of those states that has the "other" red cross type organization, go donate another pint.
    Most people are down for a day or two after donating.
    I donate in the am and train that night. I could easily give 50% more each time due to blood volume.
    If you didn't feel even remotely dizzy or light headed even for a few seconds when you stood up after then you could lose a little more. Is it ill advised? Maybe. Aspirin should always be in your cycle supps. 1 am and 1 pm was my docs suggestion.

    Always test your bp at rest and always take it 3x in a row. Grab your monitor and sit and chill for 20 minutes then take it. If you get up and walk 2 steps it could jump 30 top and bottom.

    Why the Aspirin, just curious?
