    I am doing 100 mgs of test and my blood pressure is high-
    136 over 85 .
    I had it done a week apart on 2 different days for accuracy.
    I am normally 122 over 77 or 118 over 72.
    My dht levels skyrocketed to 131, could that cause it. I am in good shape, dont drink or smoke; i lift weghts and do cardio. Im nervous about this and am also concerned about my dht being high.
    Any reasons for this ?
    I did
    Put on 12 pounds but i atteibute that to more muscle

    How is your sodium intake? Cut down on sodium and drink a lot of water and see if that helps.

    Hey PM member LW64 he has some great insight on how to combat this. He just gave me a protocol that I just started today. And like Calvare2 said watch the sodium intake and drink lots of water. Definitely touch bases with LW64.

    How long have you been on? Same thing happened to me in the beginning but then it came right back down. Keep up with the cardio and watch the weight gain. Muscle is better than fat but too much of it still has negative effects on your health. Keep your diet clean.

    Do you know what your E2 values are? High estrogen can raise BP as well.

    Your numbers are still in the pre hypertension range. Just keep an eye on them and see if you can drop a few lbs. What was your latest blood test hematocrit reading? I am convinced that is what bumped my BP up. I give blood every 4 months and it stays lower.

    136/85? No cause for alarm yet, relax. Clean up the diet and hit the cardio and you'll be fine
