I am 25 years old and on Friday I found out that I have high blood pressure diabetes. Well I got a blood pressure machine and just used it 30 minutes ago. My readings was 142/96 with a pulse of 91. is that high ?
You have got Stage 1 Hypertension. Optimal BP is less than 120/80 mmHg. Normal BP is less than 130/85 mmHg.High normal BP is 130-139/85-89 mmHg.
Follow-up recommended: Confirm in two months; one BP medication; Change lifestyle.(Since you have diabetes, BP medication is compulsory)
Normal pulse rate of a resting person is 60-100 beats per minute.
Check the function of the kidney (for microalbuminuria, creatinine, blood urea nitrogen), heart (for hypertrophy) and retina ( for hypertensive retinopathy) once in a year.
Control your blood sugar and bad cholesterol.

I am a 72 year old woman in good health with elevated BP in morning. Started Bystolic ( less than 2 mg at night) My BP was 113/68 with pulse of 62. Am I getting too low? My family doc says too low is a risk factor for stroke in older women. What say?
Hi, I am 46 y/o female (just turned 46), still active. My height is only 4'9" and weight 122 lb. But my BP and my pulse is high. Usually I don't go to see a doctor, only for my papsmear/mamo. This week I've had a cold and couldn't come to work. I went to see my doctor (after 2 years) and my BP was 150 (didn't tell me how much diastolic was). She just told me to come for another check up in 4 months. I called her next day and asked for some lab tests (cholesterol, creatinine, which I've had done 6 years ago). Why she didn't offer this to me during my visit? Anything else should I check? I decided to change my diet and checking my bp regularly at home. Interesting, that sistolic went down. The highest I've had 123 and lowest 103, but diasolic still high - 79-90. My pulse is 82-96. I think this numbers are telling that I have prehypertension. I work as a sonographer in a busy hospital. My work is also very stressfull. My father died suddenly from the heart attack at 67. My mother has HBP and taking meds. So, I am in high risk. What else can I check (tests) to examine my heart (coronary arteries)? I don't want to start meds.

Dear Doctor, I'm a 36 year old mail, 5'11", 242 lbs. (down from 250 lbs.) with prehypertension . My blood pressure is variable but the vast majority of the time is in the prehypertensive range. Sometimes, in the mornings, it is at or below 120/80,...
