Hey, Paula.....good to hear you are doing OK!  CLINK!  WOW on the BP!  I always get white coat syndorme when they take my BP.  If they would just let me sit for a couple of minutes instead of rushing right to it I think it would be lower because after the doc and I talk and she takes it, it is lower.  I think it is funny that she tells me to be sure my arm is heart level at home and that I take it while I am resting.  Then when I go in the office, the nurse takes it with my arm hanging down and I am not in resting mode!  Go figure!  Any who....keep up the good work!!

Boy, Paula, what are you doing to get a 110/69 bp?  That is fantastic and I am so proud of you. Just a little jealous (lol) since mine still isn't getting down where it should be - even with taking 2 bp meds plus diuretic.  Sorry, it looks like I got off the "Pumper's chat" theme.  Read you later -

 Thanks Dusty/Sharon! I am fortunate. He walked in,greeted me and said hello, and took my right arm. I have always been tested at heart level.  My numbers are looking great, thankfully, and forgot to say he said I don't need to change my basal rates. I said I will in the heat and he agreed.  As far as behind he was, he took his time with me. I am liking this man.  First impression wasn't good for me.  Found out he doesn't like doctors putting patients on the pump without patients seeing him/Endos first. CLINK! - Paula  You are silly Sharon?

Paula, BP 110/69???    I did not realize you are a teenager!    You must be a very relaxed, easy going person and you must have had no stress at the time.

Oh yes Ricard, a teen at ....cough, cough...54!  Thanks! It shocks me sometimes to be honest, especially waiting that long! Husband was with me and we just sat and talked like we were the only ones there! I do get anxious at times and just need to focus! Have a good evening! CLINK! - Paula

Ginny I know what you mean about the white coats but at least my internist knows it might be higher because of that lol.

HEY RICHARD....I guess I did feel like a teen w/bp of 110/69!  He is Cerian, and sometimes he says things so fast...anyway, I called just now and she pulled my chart and it was 120/70!  When I am wrong, I like to correct!  So much for a teen spirt! HAVE A GOOD ONE!  CLINK! - Paula

Hi, y'all! Had my BP checked the other day, and it was 118/70, so I was happy with that.

My husband borders on high blood pressure, and our doctor explained to him that "white coat syndrome" is not an isolated phenomenon--in other words, if the sight of a healthcare person raises your blood pressure to higher-than-desirable levels, so do a lot of other things in life. That made sense to me, and I keep an eagle eye on my husband's BP as a result!

Glad to hear about the good numbers some of you are having--keep up the good work!

Kim

Paula & Kim, those are both very good BP's!  Cool!  Mine was in the 140's a few months ago and now it is in the 120's because I am taking 25mg water pills.  That really helped.  I do not have the white coat syndrome.  So many of them are just kids with coats that happen to be white.  LOL!

Thanks, Kim!  I think those three mile walks may be helping more than I thought.  I've lost 6 pounds since I sarted walking outdoors in early May and I have much stronger legs and endurance and the gout is not bothering me any more.  Walking is supposed to be good for gout.  Maybe that is helping the BP too.
