Went to see a new doctor today. My cholesterol and blood pressure have been very good. He said that it is a regular course of action for someone with diabetes to take medication for high cholesterol and blood pressure even though you have neither. I told him I wasn't interested in doing that right now, so I'm supposed to have an A1C in a couple of weeks and he wants to test my cholesterol again (I was just checked in January) and said we'd talk more about it. I was nervous today and my blood pressure was a little higher than it usually is, 122 over 72 which is still just great. Do the rest of you take these meds?
