I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
All beta blockers act the same way.
So, indeed this is true.
Your cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar may go up a little.
Why are you on bystolic --is it only for blood pressure?
no my heart is beating fast and i have been taking atennol for a couple of years already to control heart rate and this january find out i have a little high blood pressure
so you are not on atenolol any more?
how is your cholesterol and blood sugar?
i have blood test in march my sugar level is 99, which i see the range is from 0-99, so am i on border line already
what about cholesterol?
LDL and HDL?
they are all normal
so now this is not concerning.
you can continue with bystolic since it helps with your heart rate also.
good cholestrol is over 60 is more than bad cholestrol
However, in future, if your numbers worsen, then switch should be considered.
Calcium channel blocker Diltiazem can be used to control BP and heart rate in that case.
so when should i have the blood test again and is my sugar level really on the bottom? how high is consider as diebetic
above 125 is considered diabetic fasting
so i am ok right
yes you are
should be checked again after 3 months.
i had the blood test 3 weeks after i took bystolic is the time long enough to see if my blood sugar is being affected?
no --3 months is a good time frame.
so a repeat after 3 months should be fine.
can diltiazem helps to reduce heart rate and makes the heart in regular rythm and will not affect blood sugar, tricgerlic and cholestrol?
Yes it does.
can be used as an alternative in future.
