Health Conspiracy

I figured that I would post this here since there's a lot of conspiracy fans knocking about.

So a year ago I go in for a routine physical and the first thing that they find is high blood pressure. BP has never been an issue for me as I'm usually 120/80. This test had me at 145/95.

I had gained a couple of pounds so I figured it wasn't impossible. So I set off on a bunch of lifestyle changes. I lost 50 lbs (I'm what I weighed when I was 19), got down to 15% body fat and I'm in the best shape of my life. Even better then my time in the military.

During the last year or so I've had a home BP monitor that I check every couple of days and my BP has remained high even with all of the other improvements.

Earlier this week I went in for another physical and it was an old nurse who did an old fashion BP check and she put me at 110/60. I told her what I was usually seeing at home and she strapped on their automated BP checker and it said 140/80. She manually checked my left arm and it was 110/60. She took me to a different machine and it said 145/90. She mentioned it to the doctor and he said the machines are more accurate and said she shouldn't be checking manually. Later in the meeting he recommended BP medication.

My MIL is a nurse so I had her manually check me yesterday and I was 110/65.

Step 1 - fire that doctor.
Step 3 - Profit.

The other issues that probably doesn't mean anything is cholesterol. A year ago I was 230 in total cholesterol and after getting it tested on my own a couple of weeks ago I was at 170. This would make sense with all of the weight loss except that I lost that weight be eliminating "heart healthy grains" and eating a high fat diet.

Is it possible that doctors are rigging the system to push more drugs?

You serious?
Or maybe you'd know enough to actually be an expert in your field, rather than a jackass carrying a tablet everywhere to look up drug counterindications.

It addresses everything you posted. I shouldn't need to draw it in crayon for you, especially given your self-professed, yet wholly absent, intellect.

When I was about 25 a doctor gave me a prescription for blood pressure medicine based on a high reading. I thought it was balderdash because it wasn't that high and I figured I had a little bit of "white coat hypertension". I didn't want to take the drugs, so I watched it and checked it manually and it was fine for many years.

It got a little high during my fat period and I was worried about needing medication, but went back down when I lost the weight.
