High BP. Awaiting RFT results, kidney results normal. What can be done?

i am 22 years old...healthy and fit... I can run 1-1.5 miles in a single stretch per day.....I went for pre-employment medical check-ups & found that my BP was 145/95( Fasting overnight about 12hrs)...So they said they will take another reading few hours later.. It was still high.. my kidney sonography is absolutely normal....I am awaiting RFT results....Few hours prior to giving blood sample for RFT i consumed potato wafers as nothing else was available in the vicinity of the hospital..will it affect the outcome of RFT???

first regarding your BP, we need to find out any secondary cause for hypertension like renal, endocrine, renal artery stenosis cause. you are required to do some basic investigations like renal function tests, urine examination, renal doppler and special blood investigations in consultation with your doctor to look for cause of high BP. potato wafers may not affect RFT much, but beware of high salt containaing food .They will increase your BP.
take care
