    If the BP is abnormally high for one single test there is a good chance the test was done wrong also. They could have used the wrong size cuff. They also could have tested you with a five minute rest. There is a reason a good medical staff goes over your medications and takes your temp and things like that before they take your BP. If they are rushing you through the physical or taking it while you are standing up then you are not getting a resting BP.

    Trucking companies are not your friends !!!!!
    I get my own physical and DOT card on my own out of my own $$$. I have had the same issues. Same thing. Now my physical and my company have nothing to do with each other , it’s totally up to me and my doctors. A great company lost a great driver and a great driver lost a great company because of that ,,, now they are still trying to get me back ... and I’m still not there.

    I’m doing Keto also. Back in 2015 I lost 100 pounds doing it. Ended up gaining it all back because I stopped exercising and eating bad. Started it back up on April 1st and have lost 30 pounds since then. Already feel so much better and I’ve dropped almost 2 pants sizes already. Hopefully I pass my dot physical Monday.
     
    Radman Thanks this.
