I'm prehypertensive (~132/65), and have been put on an ACE Inhibitor. I don't seem to be experiencing any of the common side-effects, so thats good. The BP is down to almost the normal range after 2 weeks, so that's good too.
Watching the sodium sucks. Had to cut the Oreos in half and still haven't figured out how to replace those needed calories. I still need to talk to the Dr. to see if I can get sodium "credits" for training rides involving sweat I have noticed an occasional tiny bit of cramping since cutting the sodium.
Anyone else here working through this? It's pretty strange to be so fit and have this problem, but the BP has been inching up for the last 7 years or so. Genetic, I guess, but my parents (both living) still have normal BP
My nephrologist was freaking about the RHR vs. the BP, but half his patients are probably on dialysis:
