TopicAverting High Blood Pressure
Say What? I'm only 30 years old. So what can a person do? Follow his doctor's BPS 5 advice. Start a regimen of medications that won't cure it-just keep it under control--sometimes. So for all those years I've been on some costly drugs that have consistently helped to taint the city waste water plant wherever I was living at the time.
The NIH states that blood pressure readings are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and usually given as two numbers. For example, 120 over 80 (written as 120/80 mmHg). The top number is your systolic pressure, the pressure created when your heart beats.
It is considered high if it is consistently over 140. The bottom number is your diastolic pressure, the pressure inside blood vessels when the heart is at rest. It is considered high if it is consistently over 90.Either or both of these numbers may be too high.
