Long story short- my doctor measured my blood pressure at the office and didn’t share the number with me. After saying it was high, he prescribed Losartan 25mg. I should also note that creatine levels were at 1.16, which the lab notes as high. My A1C is 6.0, but I’ve had plenty of morning highs due to a low dosage of Lantus (now my mornings are in control). Also my cholesterol levels are 177 (LDL 88 / HDL 56)
I’ve been checking my blood pressure since the night of my doctor’s visit. It’s consistently 100/50, and I haven’t taken Losartan yet… I’m concerned about taking it, thinking that my BP might sink to levels that are dangerous.
Anyone ever been in the same situation? I’m also thinking that my creatine levels are on the decline, but I’ve also read from the Mayo Clinic that 1.16 is a normal range (not sure what the range is for diabetics though).
Any opinions? I picked up the medication last night (Sunday morning here now), but plan on calling the doctor on Monday to let him know about my blood pressure before I take the medication.
