Here’s the sitch; I’m 5’10", weigh 223 and am muscular with about 14%bf. I’m on TRT as well; haven’t lifted in a month due to a shoulder injury but starting back tomorrow. I’ve pretty much always had elevated BP, typically in the 134/74 range or so; it’s taken weekly when I get the shot. However, this last week it popped up to 170/90 and the NP wants me on a BP med; not lisinopril. She tells me that I can come off it when my BP gets down to normal via my changing diet, getting exercise, etc.
Any recommendations re: diet, exercise protocol, etc.? Should I discontinue the TRT? For a long time, we’ve dabbled with Anastrazole but have found I feel much better without it. When they draw blood and my Estradiol is high, I’ve taken Anastrazole to knock it back down. I’m only adding this in case y’all think I should just stay on it. Still, I have to say (and one of the docs there is on TRT and skips the Anastrazole) that I feel best without it.
Clearly, a clean diet and adding some cardio will help. What else should I be doing? Sorry for the length, just trying to add info to avoid y’all having to ask a bunch of questions. Don’t want to waste your time!
