Hypertension: blood pressure, efferent arteriole, afferent arteriole
efferent arteriole, afferent arteriole, water diuresis: GFR is determined in part by the hydrostatic pressure generated by the heart. Thus when blood pressure falls, GFR may also fall. There are pressure receptors in the afferetn arterioles of the kidney that stimulate the release of renin when pressure drops....

Hypertension: blood pressure, 130 bpm, treadmill
130 bpm, treadmill, blood pressure: Hi Frank, I would have this evaluated. The fact that you exercise and lost weight may have made an even HIGHER pressure come DOWN to 130/90. You may need medicines to keep both numbers lower. Ideally the BP should be 120/80 or lower. Anxiety can raise blood...

Hypertension: blood pressure, arterial blood flow, arm numbness
arterial blood flow, arm numbness, vascular exam: Hi Don, I think going off the Lipitor is a good idea, but the Lisinopril could have been left although your blood pressure response was a bit too low.

Hypertension: Controlling HTN to reverse LAE/LVH, calcium score, stress echo
calcium score, stress echo, toprol xl: Hi Joe, These episodes sound like afib/flutter. it would be beneficial to get a 24 hour holter to capture these runs. Isolated PVC s are most usually benign. Exercise can indeed lower blood pressure and in soemcases can reverse LVH/LAE as long as no permanent...

Hypertension: Controlling HTN to reverse LAE/LVH, calcium score, stress echo
calcium score, stress echo, toprol xl: Aggressive BP control can to a certain extent reverse LVH / LAE. Exercising on a long term basis reduces the sympathetic tone. But I do not think your AF is ischemic since your calcium score is zero. It must be due to an aberrant pathway. You would benefit...

Hypertension: Cough and Captopril, persistent cough, antihypertensive drug
persistent cough, antihypertensive drug, captopril: Captopril can cause cough in about 10% of the people taking it. Actos can also cause dry mouth and cough.
