I hope that helps. No protein is a good sign. Hang in there. You can do it.

medicine increased again

Called my dr on Friday because my home readings were at 120-138/94-104 while on 1000mg of Aldomet a day. The top number is ok, but the bottom number has been very tough to control. He just recently changed my medicine from 250mg 3 x's a day to 500mg 2 x's a day. Turns out that I need to have the middle dose, 12 hours is too long a space. Hopefully, this will hold me over for the next 9 1/2 weeks. I want to get to at least 34 weeks. I think he can only give me another increase of 500mg. I feel a difference of having the middle dose already. So far no protein.
