Is there are relationship between beta-blockers and AD? I am actively and successfully working on my insulin resistance to lower my chances of getting AD but it is unlikely that these changes will allow me to stop taking medication to control my blood pressure. I started on them when I was young and very slender. I tell all doctors that I love my beta-blocker and am very reluctant to try another class of anti-hypertensives. Is there any reason I should?

Strong family history of CAD, mother and grandmother died at 42 of heart attacks. Mother had SVT arrhythmia, I also had episodes of this same arrhythmia beginning at 14 years old. I have taken a beta blocker, atenolol or Tenormin since I was 30 years old for hypertension. At that time, I was a young, thin woman and still had hypertension due to my family history. Currently 58 years old.
I am very sorry to have quoted your post with the wrong user name in an earlier welcome!! I'll blame my post-bunion surgery brain, which seemed to have drifted down to my right foot for a few weeks!
It seems that you have had a birthday between when you joined on Dec. 27 and now. So as someone with a son and granddaughter who both have birthdays in this wintry period, I hope you found joy in turning 58. (My 6-year old granddaughter, whose birthday is just before New Year's, when asked what she liked most about Christmas, replied "My birthday!" )
