In sympathy with our esteemed Mr Roper, I have been diagnosed with extremely high blood pressure, which must be medicated immediately (starting tonight - and I though the occasional bottle of rum was doing the trick).

So be warned, if any of you decide to wind me up, or stress me out causing blood pressure rise, I will get angry, vindictive and and and and - oh, oh cancel those last remarks, the drugs are starting to work...

Peace brothers and sisters

Mate had the same issues, Dr sent him home with a blood pressure monitor.
It soon became apparent the lowest reading came after he chilled with a beer.








He's currently being treated for gout.

There's a reason why they call hypertension "the silent killer". Good thing yours was discovered...

The weird thing is I don't have any hypertension despite my extremely dissolute lifestyle! I have all sorts of weird arythmias and palpitations which cause doctors to frown and tut but my blood pressure remains ridiculously good for an idiot of my age at 125/80. Very odd.

Yes, getting old sucks!

It seems that this hypertension caper is catchy. Bout 6 mths ago at work and quite keen to "enlighten" a coupla lazy cunts I got a nose bleed that wouldnt stop. Prior to this my hooter needed an impact to induce the flow of claret. I rang my bride to pick me up so I didnt bleed all over my bike. The top number of my blood pressure matched the top speed of my bike. Im pleased that at that time I only had the 1100. So I think we all need more medicinal rides ,rum and BEER. Ihope yer travellin well Tony.

I blame my mother, naturally. She has insanely high blood pressure, even with her pills - hope I don't inherit the rest of her ailments. She will be 89 this year and the old bloke hits 93 in July. If I want anything, it's their longevity I can deal with.

Thanks for the support, it's a bit of a pisser thinking all is golden and the bastards throw a curved ball at ya!

C'est la vie! At least I can still ride, even if it's like an old woman - oh shit, genetic stuff again.

'Er indoors (AKA the Torque Wench) has to take pills for her blood pressure. And she's got that type 2 diabetes.

It has been suggested that I have a sort of warped and violated Picture of Dorian Grey thing going on, where I do all the seriously unhealthy cigarettes whisky and wild wild wombats gig, and 'er indoors suffers the consequences.

Sadly it's not true. While my blood pressure and blood sugar remain fine, my lungs are pretty crap, and I had to give up smoking a few years ago. And the gods know I still fucking miss it.

Word of warning .............................
Both blood pressure and cholesterol medication can lower your libido.
Also your brain needs cholesterol to function properly, low levels have been attributed to Alzheimer's.

But there is an out.
Next blood test for cholesterol levels, ask for your Histamine levels as well.
If Histamine levels are within range, then cholesterol will not have any negative effect on your blood vessels. As in, it cannot stick to your artery walls etc. My cholesterol level is 7.6

I had this argument with my Doctor, and asked. "Why put me on drugs for something you have not seen, test me for artery clogging". Cost me $150 for a coronary calcium score. I was in the bottom 25 percentile bracket for people my age. I said. "That means jack shit coz most people my age are nearly dead anyway". Doc agreed but said I scored a 2 out of 5, which is good.

He wrote out another script for cholesterol tablets, I tore it up and threw it in his bin.
Its all a con from the major drug companies.

Ok, I'm a conspiracy theorist, but we are all dieng anyway, can't stop it.
