Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

  • The range of systolic blood pressure for most healthy adults falls between 90 and 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). His systolic blood pressure of 157 is slightly higher then normal.
  • Normal diastolic blood pressure ranges between 60 and 80 mm Hg. Your diastolic blood pressure of 67 is within normal range.
  • Normal pulse rate for a healthy adult, while resting, can range from 60 to 100 beats per minute.His pulse rate of 71 is again within normal limits.

It means that his blood pressure is slightly elevated. Following is recommended for him:

-Restrict your salt intake .

-Drink plenty of water.

-Limit your alcohol & avoid smoking.

-If you are overweight,then loose weight.

-Eat a healthy diet.

-Eat less fat and sodium.

His temperature of 97.5 is normal.Nothing of concern.

If still after this the high BP persists,then he need to make an appointment with his doctor as prescription oral medications and anti hypertensive medications will then be required accordingly.

So bot***** *****ne is that as of now his blood pressure needs to be monitored.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
