Hypertension Percentage Loss?



I have had hypertension since 1983, SC'd since 1985.  That's over thirty years-I was placed on a CPAP machine in 2006 after being diagnosed with severe sleep apnea and after about 6  years of CPAP usage the blood pressure returned to normal although other damage was done-heart, renal CAD etc. All SC'd.  But now when I'm called in for an exam and the BP is normal can they reduce it to zero?  At present I am 10%.

No.  In 2015 you had your 20 years SC, and that means you cant be reduced except for fraud.  Stop worrying.  Instead, focus on SC your OSA.  With a cpap that is 50 percent.  I have no idea if its related to your high blood pressure or not, it doesnt matter what I think about that, anyway.  Its what the doc says in his report.  Ask your doc if your OSA is related to high blood pressure, given what you posted.
