Hallo,
Normal Blood Pressure is 120 / 80. This is suggested Range.
140 / 90 is High Normal. Above this range , is called High Blood Pressure.
But you are not mentioned your age and the time of mesurement, either in the morning or evening ,either before food or after food.
Any way your Blood Pressure Range is 136 / 88 ,according to your statement.
Now it is High Normal , eventhough it is possible to increase in future,
So that,say good bye to High salt foods , Saturated Fat , Hydrogenated Oils and Vegetable Oils.
Add , Apples, Bananas , Grapes , Orange juice and plenty of Cold water.
Keep good health.

Hello Ive read about the Atkins and jetogenic diets;of course there is no such easy path to reducing weight and im thin as it is already however i exercise moderately and never been intense with programs.I find eating in moderation and keeping to a low complex carb, decent protein and high good saturated fats such as virgin cocnut oil, MCT oil, cashews,olives,peanuts, to be quite rewarding. Not to mention I dont exclude my fairshare of vitamin and roughage in diet. So Am I doing the right thing? How much monounsaturated and medium chain fatty acids should I use? When does ketosis become dangerous? Cause I ve heard neg reactions to Atkins and ketogenic diet. What is right for me?

my son is on adderall (slow fast acting 25m) but only in school. In july he had his blood work and it came back with elevated enzymes ast 68 alt 86. The weeks prior to taking his blood work he ate boxes of donuts and croissants which is high in saturated fats. He is 17, plays basketball and weighs 178 lbs. His pcp is taking further tests to find out what other factors might be in play for his high liver enzymes. So worried.
