What are normal blood pressure levels?

Hi I have a BP monitor at home . Right now my reading is 130/86. I have a Bicuspic valve. Today I have been put on a low dose of BP medication after my clinic measured my BP at 151/113. This was taken immediately on arrival at the clinic after walking from the car park and a rather stressfull car journey. Am I right to be concerned about the starting medication on this evidence? .. I have recently had my personel BP monitor calybrated ..AGE 50 thank you

Hello,

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that considering your age you can be hypertensive but if your BO stays less than 140/90 then you may not require and antihypertensive drugs.

Kindly monitor your blood pressure at different times at home and discuss again with your treating physician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
