    Well for keeping size....make sure you get plenty of protein and include lifting in your workout regimen. Also do HIIT cardio, which helps reduce burning up muscle and concentrates mostly on fat. As for your BP, just make sure you are eating healthy I guess, cut out some caffeine if you have too much.

    Have you thought about supplements to help you?

    I had a mildly higher BP not too long ago and took some steps into helping it come down, by A LOT, and am now back in regular ranges.

    -Life Support sup (forgot the manufacturer, sorry, can't google at work either)
    -Celery Seed extract
    -Garlic extract
    -Potassium - Also, perhaps exchange your regular kitchen salt for "No Salt", which is potassium based
    -Fish oils, omega 3-6-9, not just your regular Costco oils
    -Lots and lots of nuts. Almonds, Pecans and Walnuts would be my recommendations
    -Swiming has done wonders for me too, helps all around body exercise and could help bring your stuff down
    -Reduce stress in anyway you can

    And last but certainly not least, sleep. Well.

    stopping meds without consulting your physician is never a good idea you should contact the doctor and let him/her know about the side effects there are a ton of BP meds so that one didn't work for you before you say well i am maintaining you need to consider the half life of the drug also often headaches are a side effect of high BP that the med is treating be very careful when it comes to supplements as many supplements can cause increases in BP try to avoid high sodium food choices and continue to exercise as long as your physician has given you clearance for exercise keep in mind that exercise increases your BP during the activity and that your BP will drop for a little while after your exercise is complete

    High diastolic blood pressures (the second number), especially in young people (how old are you?) are some reasons for serious concern. Have you had your BP tested during exercise? Does you DBP increase or decrease with exercise? DBP should decrease slightly with exercise, if it does not, then this is a bad sign. Its a sign of arterial stiffening, and is a side effect of smoking.

    Also, chronically high SBP (the higher number) often leads to pathological heart enlargement. Basically, the heart is working harder all the time against the pressure to pump blood, and the walls increase in thickness. As a result, the oxygen requirements of the heart are increased.
    Don't forget, high blood pressure damages vessel walls and encourages the build up of plaques (clogging of arteries) in those damaged areas. If, under high pressure situations, those plaques burst they can travel the blood stream and often become lodged in heart or brain arteries and thus cause heart attacks and strokes, respectively.

    In either case, high BP, such as what you described, place you at serious risk for cardiac events later in life. HGH probably (definitely) isn't the best idea if you're concerned about your health.
