Hello everyone. I went to see a health advisor this morning at my local doctor's practise. She wanted to discuss the results of my cholesterol blood test and advise me on adjusting diet. It obviously wasn't urgent to them which is good as the results are from 2 months ago and is 5.2mmol/L where they like to see 5 and below. However higher cholesterol combined with high BP is a recipe for disaster. I'm 60, about 5ft 11" and about 170 pounds. She did my blood pressure while I was there and it was 155. Back in June, it was 144. It's worrying me and I'm trying to think of a logical solution for this. I've been really overdoing the vaping for a while, vaping even when I don't need the nicotine and sometimes to the point of feeling nauseous. Do you think this is likely the cause and that if I reduce the vaping my blood pressure should lower? I make my own juice, 2mg strength. I only had a few puffs this morning about a hour or so before seeing the health advisor. But I'm thinking that maybe there's enough nicotine in my blood stream from before today that it can keep blood pressure high?
