    CoQ10 and increased EPA/DHA


    Since I started TRT, my blood pressure has gone up a bit and I wasn't liking it. I am very active and my cardio is quite high, along with a pretty clean diet, so I was always pretty proud of my average 116-122 over 75ish readings constantly.

    For the last couple months it has been creeping into the 130 over 85 range since starting therapy. So I added coQ10 in, twice a day for the last couple weeks and upped my fish oil to 1600EPA, 1000DHA and I am back to normal again. 118 over 78 last week and 122 over 76 today- even at mid day after eating all day.

    Just thought I'd post my personal experience with it.

    FAst as you can go one way you can swing back just the opposite way seen it happens many times you need to find the proper balance which is extermely tricky. N

    I'm hoping that I am there. If it goes bad again, it is back to the drawing board.

    I bought one with the black pepper extract, which is supposed to increase absorption. I haven't had a need to try anything else to this point because this is working for me.
