I had a thread running for a while about how to combat high blood pressure on TRT and since it became a few pages long while looking for the solution, I wanted to post how I solved the issue. Hopefully this helps a few of you.
Recap: I was on 180mg of test cyp (watson) a week and my BP got jacked up to about 140-150/85-95. This was scary and the last thing I wanted to do was drop test. My TT injecting 180 a week (divided between two shots) was around 700-800 so it wasn’t incredibly high to cause high blood pressure.
I initially thought it could be an issue with the cypionate ester so I opted to try propionate.
I started doing just 120mg of testosterone cypionate every 5 days and switched to cyp from a compounding pharmacy that used grapeseed oil instead of cottonseed oil. BAM my BP dropped SUBSTANTIALLY! My body actually absorbs the test better, as I am on the same dose and my test is now about 800-900 TT throughout the week.
9g fish oil a day
I eat beats every single day (clinically proven to lower BP up to 15 points for over 24 hours) You can also juice them if you are into that
Vitamin D3 every day
My BP is now 123/73 and my total testosterone is higher than it was previously.
Also, clearly you should avoid simple sugars and stimulants as they both jack up you BP.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
