Is blood pressure 140/93 normal?
I am an active 38 year old maile. I have been lifting weights for 26 years. I have never taken steroids. my blood pressure is 140 over 93 and I would like some advice on how to take it down. I am already watching my sodium intake and exercising regularly. I am trying to avoid medication.
Take a low salt diet, rich in fibrous foods. Avoid oily, fatty foods. Take lots of fluids and go for regular exercise. Make sure you are not constipated, as it worsens the piles. If you are overweight, losing some will help in both piles and blood pressure. You may need surgery for the piles that are already there, but these measures will prevent recurrence.
This blood pressure is slightly raised. However, it needs to be interpreted in the circumstances it was taken. At your age, it would be unusual to suffer with high blood pressure. I would be able to comment further if I had some more information about your health and a series of blood pressure readings. Please contact me if you would like further advice.
