Who order the echocardiogram in the first place? The murmur is caused by some structural problem in your daughters heart and only a pediatric cardiologist can tell you if it's serious or not. So contact your family Dr. and let them sort it out, this isn't a decision that should of been left up to to make, they should of done it for you. I'm sure your probably absolutely terrified, but start calling today, take care, Donna

Hi I have been told for 40 years that the lower number in the blood pressure readings is the more important reading of the two. I dont remember which was which Diastolic or systolic but now a friend is arguing with me that the higher number is the more serious one. Has that all been changed? like so many other mythes?
My daughter has just been told she has systolic heart disease. She is 49 years old and over weight. She has been told this disease is reversible and I would like to know how, other than to loose weight which is obvious. Also, how long does it take. Thank you.
Yes I would like to ask for an 87 year old femaie going on 88, and the Systolic number continues to be high more so in the evening, but in the am the number can range from 168-175 diastolic range from 75-88, what should be done about this, she had heart surgery about 10+ years ago and on various medications for her BP I feel this is very alarming.
