Is BP of 114/86, normal? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
Hi there, What can I do for you?
My B.P is 114/86 ..Is t fine or high?
It's a pretty good number!
but 86 ?
my worry is why my diastolic is high ?
The diastolic number (the lower number) is 86, that is a fine number
there will always be very minor variations in the blood pressure throughout the day
Have been checking it since 2 weeks
systolic is 120-114 but diastolic is 86 -87
It is a good idea to check your BP first thing in the morning for 2 to 3 days continuously
u mean early morning
what if it remains same -
Also remember that every human being will be a bit different
Let me ask you a question. How did medical science arrive at the number of 120/80 being normal?
last month was feeling some kind of palpitations and all - So my doc prescribed me inderal 10 mg ..was it okay
It was determined by checking 1 million american military recruts between the age of 20-30 in the year 1970
You are not american, you are not built like a soldier and your general stage in life is different
Don't hold fast and hard to this number!
till what reading - you will say B.P is normal
It will cause severe anxiety
so now even when i dont feel palpitation , i am having medicne - please advice what should i do
I am very very sure you will live a long happy life with that BP
now as to the palpitations
i would not recommended that you continue inderal for a very long time.
ya , i will have side effect ?
i think that you should discontinue it after 2-3 weeks of use and see if there is a repeat of the palpitations
ok will do so
Have asked you that till what reading u sy that B.P is normal
No, it's a very safe drug. the problem is we shouldn't just give a drug tat will mask symptoms. If you have palpitations, we should see why they are happening
at your age, reading of 110-125 systolic
and 70 to 90 diastolic would be ok
but i would be very bothered if your BP stayed around 130/90 for very long. Then I would probably give you an antihypertensive
actually have heard if B.P remains more that 120 /80 then it mite effects body parts
what is antihypertensive?
statistically the chances are almost null. 120/80 is an average. It also depends on a persons genetics and if they have inherited any other probles with their blood vessels
u mean to say , have to take that fr lifelong
Sometimes you do and sometimes you don't, it depends on the person and why they are hypertensive
For example, if your hypertension is due to being overweight.. then losing the weight will negate the need for any more meds
My doc said that inderal will also lower down my B.P
you would need to be on the drugs life long
I am 65kg and 5.2
You are FINE! I'm happy with you're BP and your weight is fine as well.
Get another opinion. I do not believe in prescribing drugs at a moments notice.
I am not saying you have any kidney issues
i am just giving an example
i am not sure why it is happening ?
how to detect ?
Ma'am, if you keep stressing about your BP, your BP will go up. How about managing your stress better?
that what is the cause i am havig bp
I am not going to say you have hypertension, this is a normal number
ok sure , will do so
XXXXXXX don't worry. you have a long life ahead of you, if those numbers go up any furthur, then we will look into the causes and the need for medications
For now. Go out, live a healthy lifestyle, relax and enjoy!
Ok. Take Care, feel free to come back anytime
