If it is the bottom figure it's OK, what is full reading, the top number? if above is 125 it's fine, but if130 it is a matter of concern. OK.

just wanted to know if it is bad I know smoking and salt effect it, are there any other things that would make it high like stress Thanks Take Rampril 1 at night been increased to 1 in the morning as well, do smoke(bad me) have to have extra salt due to another illness. Age 49, female, 5ft 2, 7st 12lb and was sitting. Don t drink Don t have coffee Had cholestrol checked 2wks ago I thought it would be high as my mum brothers and sister have high mine was 5.2 so it was OK. I have to have extra salt due to an electrolyte deficiency have had more in the past 2mths and sodium was up to 132 so that was good as before it was very low even dropping to 124. Anyway just me like to see the funny side of things so take that many pills would make a good rattle ha ha thanks

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
