Anyone out there dealing with resistant hypertension? In the past 2 months, I have been dx with such. I've completed all kidney/renal studies and advanced BP monitoring, all of which were normal. I'm on 5 different BP meds, and my average daily BP is still 151/80 (as measured by a 24 BP cuff monitor.) I have a long and complex hx of heart issues (all okay now), but this is sudden. I am a 73 yo female, 115lbs, exercise 4x/wk, non-smoker, eat well, no caffeine or BP raising OTC medicine, and 1 drink/day. My Mayo cardiologist says she doesn't know why my BP is not controlled. Any suggestions or experiences to share would be welcome.
Thank you, and wishing you a good day – Sue
