I saw my nephrologist today. He reported that my creatin level has come down since I stopped taking propranolol. Yeah! But it’s not at the normal level. I agreed to talk to my psychiatrist to see if I can eliminate or change any of the (3) medications I take for depression and anxiety since each have some impact on lowering my blood pressure. Most surprising? The doctor suggested I eat as many salty foods as I want since salt will increase my blood pressure. Weird since I have always tried (not always successfully) to avoid chips, etc. The doctor also explained that my numbers are not so out of whack now that he is worried about kidney damage. And if it is not ideal for me to change my medications at this time, I “could live with it.” I prefer to try to get my creatin level back to normal. I’ll see him again in six months.
