Progesterone, Hypertension, Fasting Blood Glucose
Hi Wray: I just wanted to let you know my success with health problems I always had but have changed a lot since on progesterone cream.
Hypertension and fasting blood glucose.
I had hypertension since I was checked in my teens (I am 62) and for the last 10 years my fasting glucose was above 115 ( I am not overweight and after meals glucose is below 100. I exercise everyday).
Now my systolic blood pressure has come down around 10 points. My fasting glucose was this morning 87!!!!for the first time in my life. Unbelieveable....I am very happy with those resaults.
I want to check with you some problems with my sleep since I started with progesterone. The reason I came to your site was looking for answers for my prostate hyperplasia. About a month ago, I initiated with 20 mg of progesterone in the morning and evening, but immediately I could not sleep. I stopped the cream and normal sleep pattern came back (I usually have sleep problems, I wake up and may take hours to go back to sleep).
I started the cream again, 20 mg in the morning, and my sleep is not altered that much but it takes me 30 minutes to an hour to fall to sleep. Have you seen this type of sleep problems? Any suggestions?
I would like to implement the twice a day progesterone because I feel it is improving my prostate situation but I am stuck with insomnia.
