First off, I have made an appointment with my doctor but it is still several days away. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this. Pre-healthy diet at a weight of 333 lbs. my Blood Pressure ran around 140/85...top number too high, and the bottom number elevated, putting me into the prehypertention category.
With diet, my BP has steadily come down...but now it seems like it is too low, and I'm still morbidly obese. It averages around 100/60 (standing and sitting)for the last several weeks. I have experianced some dizziness the last few days, but I do experience lightheaded and dizziness during PMS which is now. (Up to 10 days before TOM.) At this rate it will be 20/10 at my goal weight...LOL Reading up on BP, there is a large discrepancy as to what is normal and/or too low. Some reputable sites say low Normal can be 90/60, and some pretty much say your about to die at that rate.
Has anyone experianced dramatically lowered BP after a significant weight loss?
I have a BP monitor at home that my husband tested against the Dr's. office a few months ago, so it should be accurate.
