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). Your systolic blood pressure of 164 is higher then normal.

Normal diastolic blood pressure ranges between 60 and 80 mm Hg. Your diastolic blood pressure of 106 is again higher then normal.

An elevation of the systolic and/or diastolic blood pressure increases the risk of developing heart (cardiac) disease, kidney (renal) disease, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis), eye damage, and stroke (brain damage).

Following is recommended for you now:

-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.

Considering your blood pressure readings of 164/106 , you need to go to ***** will be prescribed with anti hypertensive medications accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
