Want to learn about blood pressure. What is the meaning of its measurement? - Online Doctor Chats
HI My name is XXXXXX
How are you doing?
i m fine.
Please proceed with your query
i would like to learn something about blood pressure
whts the meaning of its measurement??
Blood pressure actually refers to the pressure under which the blood flows in the arteries
The upper reading is called the systolic blood pressure
The lower reading is called the diastolic blood pressure
Normally, whenever your heart beats, each beat is made up of 2 parts
One part when the heart contracts to push blood into the arteries
The blood pressure which is present during this phase is called the systolic blood pressure
The second part of the beat is when the heart relaaxes
The blood pressure in the arteries during this phase is called diastolic blood pressure
It is commonly measured in mmHg
This means millimeter mercury
high blood pressure means the pressure is more than 140/90 mmHg
Normal blood pressure is around 120/80 mmHg
between 120-140, is a stage called pre-hypertension
can i get a range of normal, high and low blood pressure?
The blood pressure can vary from time to time
But a diagnosis of high blood pressure if I have consistently high readings over a period of 3-6 months
How old are you, XXXXX?
i m 29 yrs old..
Do you have any issues with your blood pressure?
he had diagnised my bp
and he told me that i hav high blood pressure
he told me to take less salty food
Have you gotten it checked again
but since then i hv not checkd my bp
Taking less salt in your diet s something you should definitely follow
But before a definitive diagnosis of high blood pressure can be made
I would like you to get your blood pressure checked again, atleast 2-3 more times
If it is consistently high, then drugs may be required
ok but in how much time gap should i check my bp??
what was the reading the last time it was taken
At monthly intervals
It needs to be repeated 2-3 times before a definitive diagnosis can be made
so if you get it checked today
then after 1 month and then again after 1 month
DO you follow?
i will tell u wht i m facing i m body..
Till then, I would suggest you take a low salt diet
and exercise for atleast 50 mins daily
actually i feel like tightning my body all the times..
means streaching my muscles of body..
but it happens unkwnglingly
but when i realize it
then i try to free myself and relax
but again when i m busy in my work again i feel the same..
Its unlikely that this is due to the blood pressure
It is more like a manifestation of stress
so whts the solution??
try and destress
