blood pressure fluctuations kidney failure
My dad has wildly fluctuating blood pressure: from over 200 when we worry about stroke, to very low and he cannot walk safely. He had a renal angiogram to check an arterial stent for clogs, but they found nothing there. His kidneys are failing now. Doctors cannot explain the blood pressure changes that are taking away his quality of life.

sorry to hear about your dad. Are you pushing him on losing weight and exercising?

Just a thought: how about Imdur for only those periods when BP is high? And coffee or caffeine pills for when it's too low. An anesthesiologist will give epinephrine when BP goes too low during an operation. Caffeine could suffice in everyday life.
