don't be afraid by that. there are certain factors on why you are having an elevated blood pressure. they are: 1. age - as we get older, BP fluctuates. 2. gender 3. heredity 4. temperature - the hotter it is, the higher your BP will. 5. weight 6. diet (lifestyle, vices, etc.) 7. activity P.S. *the normal BP is... systole - 120-140 diastole - 70-90 **but it still depends upon the person...remember that we are "individuals", what is normal with one may not be normal with the other. ***don't take your BP when your exhausted, take a 15-30 minutes break before measuring. and also, dont take your BP if you just ate (you will have an elevated BP if you do so).
