@CDone, Good point about being outside the averages to begin with. I'll cut back on the sodium. My exercise varies. Some days it's just a 25 minute walk and some back exercises. Today, though, I worked 8:00–10:00 in the community garden I... (more)

How is your body temp doing? You could check when getting up during the morning, at noon and before bed, maybe for some days and see that it's not too low. Also, do you have proper salt intake? If you're avoiding junk food and sugar, eating... (more)

Anything home made is going to be significantly lower in sodium. Home made jerky and freshly cooked steak or ham are loads better for you than any type of packaged convenience food. Buy a giant slab of beef or turkey and make some homemade jerky... (more)

I would at least rule out electrolyte imbalance. Eat more salt, bone or beef broth and take a Magnesium chelate supplement. Bananas or avocados for potassium. More seafood.

Sounds like white coat hypertension. The stress of going to the doctor (especially given your obsession with the numbers) likely raised you BP AND your BG. Keep monitoring at home.

Eating a clean diet, improving digestion, reducing stress, increasing sleep, supplementing fish oils and GABA...that's a good start down the right road.
