Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The blood pressure you are having of 130 / 84 is only mildly raised.

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 130 is slightly higher then normal.

Normal diastolic blood pressure ranges between 60 and 80 mm Hg. Your diastolic blood pressure of 84 is again slightly higher then normal.

Nothing to worry. You just need to continue taking your BP medications as prescribed.

Further following will help you greatly to control the slightly elevated BP:

-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.

All this will help you greatly.

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.
