Thanks for posting the query on XXXXXXX

Yes at your age the BP of 127/68 is alright. But do get it measured from a doctor / nurse with a mercury sphygmomanometer for accurate readings. Yearly BP and blood sugar monitoring are must at your age.Do get your lipid profile and ecg as a baseline investigation. Also do consider annual flu and 5 yearly pneumococcal vaccine at your age.

Wish you a hale and hearty life!

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.

Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
