Humph 2

Got invited for a NHS Health Check now I'm officially a MAMIL, and failed.
I'm currently indicating high blood pressure, the lowest reading she got was 158/86, so I have to pop in a few times over the next 2 months for random readings to see if it was just a case of "White coat syndrome". I now dread to think what the blood work will show up!

Reading up the ways to lower blood pressure are
Stop smoking - I have never smoked
Reduce alcohol intake - I don't drink alcohol
Reduce weight - I'm losing about 1kg a week at present
Eat more fruit and veg - I'm on a restricted diet due to digestive issues which can't be altered
Reduce salt - see above
Exercise more - I cycled over 200 miles last week, that's over 1200 so far this year, and they want more

Well to celebrate this new found concern I'm going for a 60 mile ride tomorrow.

Re: Humph 2

1200 + and they want more - greedy buggas, that averages out at  around 16 mile a day which is not exactly a trip round the block !

Well done for the 1200+, I've reached 1000+ but temporarily off the saddle - Brummie's given me Squirrel flu !

I hope the you get the blood pressure down quickly

Keep on peddalling.

Re: Humph 2

sorry to hear, I guess disposing of a tree rat would help reduce the white coat syndrome

Re: Humph 2

This is why those health check letters from the doctors surgery just end up on the fire when they send them to me. Twice they've tried getting me in there, and failed. If my body's going tits up, I'm enjoying how I get there, so sod that for a lark.

Unfortunately due to family history I'm on the automatic 5 year checkup list.

Re: Humph 2

Good news. It was a severe case of white coat syndrome.
last reading at home was 128/76, which is close to optimum.

So it looks like you're stuck with me for a while longer.

Re: Humph 2

Mmmmmm I wonder if it realy  was white coat syndrome. How old was this "she" in the white coat? whistle
Good to hear you're back to normal, well as normal as a mamil gets anyway.   devilish



What is happening to this forum? First we have a MATRIL (Middle Aged Tree Rat In Lycra) and now if that wasn't bad enough a MAMIL. Anyone else got a dirty secret they want to tell us?
