My endo put me on a low dose of blood pressure medication, she said it was to help protect my kidneys.

yup, combo drug for BP/chol. Like James my weight is down and I'm only off a few points for each. Next visit going to try to get off meds.

Yes Misspearl, I have been on High Blood pressure and cholesterol meds for a number of years.

Since I have lost weight, (65 lbs last yr) I may have to revisit the HBP meds, as my BP has been extremely good since the weight loss.
