OK, thank you. I wanted to make sure that you were not on any medications that would affect these values.

To answer your question, this is an excellent blood pressure for someone your age. The heart rate is on the high side of normal, but probably nothing to worry about.

I hope this answers your question. If there is anything else I can help with, please do let me know. Best wishes and good luck, Dr David
