Symptoms high cortisol, low potassium, high blood co2, malignant circadian hypertension. My numbers are just at or over the "normal ranges". At age 40 to 45 and under work stress my weight went up a lot. I am a 6' 1" male I weighed ~180 at 40 and ~260 at 45. My bloodpressure also became a issue being 180/100 when visting the doctor. Now I am 63 I have been tested for issues but the doctors have never found the cause of my malignant hypertension. The hypertension has a circadian nature it can be normal 120/80 at 8pm but will be like 180/100 in the early morning like 2am to 9am. So I think the hypertension may be related to high cortisol. I have decided I would order some dexamethasone from mexico, to carefully test if that will eliminate my hypertension. Since I am borderline in my labs doctors are inclined to do nothing, and the alpha based hypertension meds (clonidine) blunt a little but do not really cover my hypertension. Comments welcome.
