Hi there,

I'm a 36 year old male, 5'11", ~245 lbs. I am obese but exercise regularly several times a week (usually at least 5), try to eat healthy (and do much more often than not), don't smoke, and drink moderately (except for rare occasions). I also take several heart healthy supplements (fish oil, garlic, grape seed extract, Vitamin D, Vitamin K2, etc.).

For the last several years I've struggled with weight loss (I'm doing most of the right things, but having a hard time losing) as well as pre-hypertension. I'm starting a more intensive exercise program (intervals and circuit training, which I haven't done before) and showing some early results as far as losing weight, so I'm hopeful. At any rate, 3 years ago, I had an echo done of my heart (since my dad died early at 53 of a heart attack), and it came back as good/normal. At that time, left ventricle was 1.1cm, which is considered the upper limit.

We just repeated the echo, and similarly, my heart looked fairly good with the exception of mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, as the size this time was 1.2 cm. My doctor assured me that this was nothing to worry about at this stage and didn't put me at additional risk for heart attack/stroke, but she did feel it might be time to go onto meds to bring the borderline BP down (and hopefully allow my left ventricle remodel smaller).

The medicine I'm on is 5mg Bystolic (once daily). I understand it's a beta blocker and one of the new ones, so it has very few side effects (hopefully). I started it today, and so far so good.

I do have a few questions - I plan to run them by her, but she's going on vacation soon, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to catch her, so I thought I'd get some feedback here (and try her tomorrow as well).

1.) How long does Bystolic take to notice a blood pressure difference? Right away, or is there an acclamation period?

2.) As I mentioned, I'm doing cardio interval training with some cross-training mixed in, and I'm basing it on rough heart rate estimates. 220-36=184 (my max), so I'm trying to keep it at 85% of that, or <156. However, I'm aware beta blockers can slow heart rate. What I'm trying to figure out is, as long as I feel fine (talk test, etc.), is it still okay to aim for the 156 on this medication? She seemed to think I can exercise just as intensely, but I forgot to ask if Bystolic would lower my exercising target heart rate or the maximum safe heart rate. So can I just do as I've been - keep it under 156 if possible and go by how I feel?

3.) Will Bystolic make it harder for me to lose weight? I know earlier beta blockers could lead to weight gain, and this one seems better with that, but a few have still reported it. Does it slow down metabolism?

4.) Looking at the report, I see the only other value I don't understand is:
166 MV E-F Slope (80-150 mm/sec)
Is that abnormal as well, or related to left ventrical?

The fact that my left ventricle is even slightly over the size it should be does scare me, but I'm trying to trust that if the doctor says I shouldn't worry, I shouldn't - I hope you agree with that assessment.

Thank you very much for your help!

Warmly,
XXXX
