    Thats very interesting Catherine . I take 50mg of Atenolol for familial hypertension , cant seem to get my BP lower than 135/75 despite now being slim, fit and active , its a blinkin nuisance . However, about four years ago , I was on a much higher dose which, my current Doctor tells me " could " have contributed to becomming diabetic from my previous pre diabetic status and also maybe contributed to weight gain . I have lost 5 stones over the last 18 months , by low carb , got my BG under control but cant control the BP without Beta Blockers .
