I see your readings as completely appropriate physiologically.

I was referring to a rule of thumb for estimating maximum heart rate, not diastolic blood pressure. (It really is just a rule of thumb - in this blog, a vendor of a system to calculate MHR excoriates the rule. She also inadvertently validates its use for my purposes by suggesting that it may be off by as much as 11 BPM. Oh the horror. ) I was just exposing my thought process around what might constitute "moderate exercise" for my do-it-yourself HRE screening.I see your readings as completely appropriate physiologically.
Thanks for the feedback. It means a lot to me coming from a practicing physician.
Perhaps, all E4s should consider purchasing a home B/P monitor.

I do know that many cramps will resolve with sufficient mag intake and that mag levels need to be optimized or potassium may be counter productive. Healthy kidneys will excrete excess potassium. Did you have serum potassium test last year?

After 22 years of 1.0 and 1.1 creatinine readings, this is what happened:
Potassium 4.6 mmol/L ref 3.5-5.2
Creatinine 1.32 mg/dL ref 0.76-1.27
Potassium 5.1 mmol/L ref 3.5-5.2
Creatinine 1.41 mg/dL ref 0.76-1.27
Potassium 4.6 mmol/L ref 3.6-5.1
Creatinine 0.90 mg/dL ref 0.75-1.38
It's not critical that I figure out what happened. I'm just curious.
