Is BP of 122/101 and a pulse rate of 84 normal?
lower blood pressure is high , Decrease salt in diet , 45 mins exercise
Hello , I am Dr. Mody and I would be addressing your concern .
Now blood pressure has two components. Upper- systolic 122 and lower - diastolic 101 for you .
Now the pulse and upper blood pressure are normal .
However the lower is slightly high ( normal less than 90) , however if a single reading may be high due to any physical or mental stress .
1) keep a tab on your blood pressure reading , taken on different days at different times .
If your pressure are persistently higher than 90 diastolic, consider strict lifestyle changes and mostly no meds will be required.
2) considering your age I advice you that you may start decrease salt intake in your diet to 2- 3 gms per day and adapt a healthy lifestyle, atleast 45 mins of aerobic exercise daily for 5 days a week minimum.
