That is not high BP unless you are a diabetic; in that case it's borderline high.
Normally no medications would be given for this level of BP, at least to start. Salt restriction, weight loss, salt restriction would be tried first.
(I didn't mean to say "salt restriction" twice, but it is important.)
what does the value 0f 60 mean
That's the level that one
That's the level that one's BP drops to between heart beats.
should I be concerned about the value of only 60
The usual range of "normal" BP is 90-140/60-80, although generally the lower the better.
The first number, the systolic, is the more important value.
We would like it to be 130 or lower.
last year I passed the induced stress test and also had a catherization which should no blockage why would the doctor put me on diovan and now wants me to also take toprol I do have CFS and diovan makes me more tired and weak
Please tell me your age, gender, and whether you have other medical problems.
72, female, 4 years ago had fracture of L4 and L5 and I now have scoliosis and osteoporosis of which I had been taking Evista for 15 years for the osteoporosis
From this information, if your BP was 136/60 before an BP medications, I see no reason to prescribe either Diovan or Toprol. And either could possibly make CFS worse.
Do you have any more questions?
