Hi and welcome,
If you go on Lisinopril, make sure your doc tests you to make sure your kidneys can handle it. NOT everyone can and it is a slight percentage that cannot - 0.02% I just found out I am one of them! My higher bp was due to extreme stress and the fear of doctors - LOL!!

Are you on any other meds that could cause your bp to rise? Howz ur stress level?

Keep us posted!

hi mark.

Try all natural products to help restore your body to normal. Some Type 2, and pre-diagnosed will find healing with all natural products, and not meds. The body is designed to heal itself when fed properly. Most of us will not eat the right foods, so therefore we need to suplement ourselfs. Here is a link to a site where I get my Products from. ( go to products and look for that help with Diabetes) and read the benifits of the products before ordering. And spread the word, so we can help one another. God Bless

Hi Mark and welcome to dc hope you find out that you will like us and stick around i would check with your doctor about your increase in bp, which could be anything.

Welcome Mark. This is a great place to get answers. Several of us have hig #"s in the am. It's called "dumping" There are several discussions on the subject here. Look around and you will find them. There doesn't seem to be just one solution for it, so you'll probably have to try different things.

Hi Mark;
Welcome to our family. I love Cameros almost as much as a fine tuned Harley lol. Ask your Dr, about Lisinopril, it protects the Kidneys and lowers the BP. Hope this helps.

Hey Mark, welcome aboard. lots of good people and info here. Only bad thing about lisinopril is the constant cough it gives a bunch of people. Not familiar with the other meds you asked about.

Hi Mark, I want to welcome you to DC. I'm new here too and also newly diagnosed so I don't have any experience with those medications. There are alot of people here that can help you with that.
