My BP is 130/90. And i am 24. Is it OK?

I m 24, male, and my blood pressure is 130/90... I believe my dad also had hypertension .. last year, i went to a doctor and he said my blood pressure was normal until yesterday i checked again it s 130/90. I m in police training so I don t get enough sleep and exercise a lot.. before i checked i ran for miles in the morning... i dont smoke and i dont drink coffee. if it s heredity does it mean my blood pressure will remain high for the rest of my life? what should I do to lower it down without taking medication?

hello,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,

normal blood pressure ranges from-120/80 + or - 10 mmHg.
blood pressure more or less by 10 than this range is normal.
Your blood pressure is normal and you dont have to worry about it.

hope you are satisfied with the answer and stop worrying.No need to alter your diet.
Take care

Hi welcome to HCM forum

As you mentioned that your Blood pressure is130 /90.your blood pressure is in range of prehypertention. Normal should be less than 120/ 80. You can control your blood preasure with out medicine. Just do regular exercise. Eat healthy food. Try to take proper sleep. Avoid excess of salt. In diet. Don't take stress. Just relax.
Bye.
Thankyou

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?
