[QUOTE=flowergirl2day;3906870]That is very interesting! I have never seen anything like it. Thank you for taking the time to share this information. I have several questions.

The information you have presented represents just one year. What were your hourly blood pressure trends throughout the subsequent years of monitoring, as your blood pressure improved, when compared to 2003 data?[/QUOTE]

I've posted my blood pressure stats for 2008, at the bottom of this post, but haven't had time to examine the trend differences, compared to 2003, except that the readings were much healthier and more consistent in 2008.

A cursory look shows the "normal" trend towards higher afternoon and evening blood pressure than the morning hours. Someone who only takes their blood pressure once in a while, and only in the morning is not getting a true picture of their blood pressure.

[QUOTE]There is a dramatic increase in your blood pressure around 5:00-6:00 p.m, with the blood pressure remaining elevated for the rest of the evening. Is that still the case in 2009? Do you have any theories as to the cause?[/QUOTE]

Hmmmm!? The blood pressure seems to jump at around the 13th hour (1pm), and then peaks at the 17th hour (5pm) and then starts dropping around the 20th hour (8pm). I take my Coreg at 6pm at night, so that might explain the lowering blood pressure trend around 8pm.

The kicking in of the Coreg, after 2-3 hours, and then the trailing off of the effects of the Coreg, several hours later, would certainly have an effect on Blood Pressure. It would be interesting to see someone's blood pressure trends who doesn't take any blood pressure/heart medication. Even so, normal blood pressure increases during the afternoon.

Another point: If I would have taken my blood pressure ONLY around 5pm (average 131/78), I would think that I suffered from high blood pressure, which in fact, is probably just normal, healthy blood pressure at that time.

I'm going to address the rest of your questions and observations at a later time. Need to take a break. :dizzy:

Take care................... :wave:
