Health Conspiracy

I figured that I would post this here since there's a lot of conspiracy fans knocking about.

So a year ago I go in for a routine physical and the first thing that they find is high blood pressure. BP has never been an issue for me as I'm usually 120/80. This test had me at 145/95.

I had gained a couple of pounds so I figured it wasn't impossible. So I set off on a bunch of lifestyle changes. I lost 50 lbs (I'm what I weighed when I was 19), got down to 15% body fat and I'm in the best shape of my life. Even better then my time in the military.

During the last year or so I've had a home BP monitor that I check every couple of days and my BP has remained high even with all of the other improvements.

Earlier this week I went in for another physical and it was an old nurse who did an old fashion BP check and she put me at 110/60. I told her what I was usually seeing at home and she strapped on their automated BP checker and it said 140/80. She manually checked my left arm and it was 110/60. She took me to a different machine and it said 145/90. She mentioned it to the doctor and he said the machines are more accurate and said she shouldn't be checking manually. Later in the meeting he recommended BP medication.

My MIL is a nurse so I had her manually check me yesterday and I was 110/65.

Step 1 - fire that doctor.
Step 3 - Profit.

The other issues that probably doesn't mean anything is cholesterol. A year ago I was 230 in total cholesterol and after getting it tested on my own a couple of weeks ago I was at 170. This would make sense with all of the weight loss except that I lost that weight be eliminating "heart healthy grains" and eating a high fat diet.

Is it possible that doctors are rigging the system to push more drugs?

there is something to what you are saying. My old doctor was trying to push BP pills down my throat, I told her that I'd prefer to just try and get in better shape and improve diet and stuff. But she was like, I really recommend you just take these pills. Like hell no. It smelled fishy to me too.

She's probably trying to win a free vacation from her pharmaceutical rep for prescribing the most BP meds.

I think everyone just loves a good conspiracy. If you choose to chastise doctors for their standard of care (which is highly regulated by medical governing bodies,btw), at least have some sort of credible source, not some guy just preying on the ignorant.

Before you start thinking the AMA is a diabolical tool of the Bavarian Illuminati, consider the simplest possibility: the machines either aren't calibrated correctly or the nurse doesn't know how to use them, and the doctor is too stupid or distracted to figure that all out.

Yes, all doctors are incredible human beings and their word is the law. Here take these pills, called Valproate for your epilepsy! I'm a doctor, so don't worry it's okay. side effects include Nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, weight gain, tremors, hair loss, irregular menstrual cycle. Valporate may cause liver damage, which can be fatal. Even though the evil weed can help epilepsy more without any of those side effects. But until your government tells you that it's ok to smoke weed, it's the devil. ****ing sheep.

I take health conspiracy way further...I'm of the belief that we have cures for the major diseases out there (cancer, HIV, Alzeheimer's, etc) but they're kept from the public because of $$$.

Anyone else believe that or come close? Yes I'm a nut lol...

No you are right. The cash cow is maintenance drugs. A cure is a one time sale~
