Brief Answer:
BP reading 130/92 is considered as a completely normal.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.

I have read your query and understand the concern.

Blood pressure reading 130/92 is considered as a completely normal clinically,although 92 diastolic blood pressure is marginally elevated but clinically it does not have any significance.

Your height and weight are also normal as per your age.

Yes,drinking tea or taking any salty foods might affect our blood pressure especially systolic one but within the normal range,as blood pressure normal range is wide, being systolic pressure between 90 to 140 mm hg and diastolic prssure 60 to 90 mm hg is considered as a normal.

One more thing,blood pressure never rises beyond its normal limit in a normotesive person by taking any food.

300 triglyceride is very high and should be put on hypolipidemic drugs (fibrates) like fenofibrate to control it.

You can send me your whole lipid profile report with other blood tests if you have done,we can discuss it on follow-up query.

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

My age is 40,weight is 76kgs and height is 5 feet and 11 inches. My heartbeat is 82 and blood pressure is 130/80. When ever I try to exercise, after someday my blood pressure becomes high and I feel problem in breathing. I did lung x-ray and it shows o.kay. I tested my lipid profile and hemoglobin test and eeg[color doppler] test. Av is slightly enlarged. In lipid profile triglyceride is 345 and cholesterol is 240. I checked my diet and took medicines. The problem is less but not totally cured.

I am a 62-year old healthy female who takes Pravastatin. My cholesterol level was 249 before being put on that drug, and I have no other health issues--not overweight, no hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, etc. Get plenty of exercise, have a good diet of protein and not many carbs or surgar. Triglycerides, etc. are fine, and my total cholesterol has dropped to 150 while on the drug. Recently a routine blood test revealed that my blood glucose level had risen to 104 after being 94 a year ago. Could this be due to the Pravastatin, and is there anything I should do?
