I'm a 33 years old (male); 6'3" 215lbs, with a blood pressure of 100/68. Feel great! However, is this low bp?
I am working on losing the weight,. I am just a bit concerned because I thought the older, taller and heavier you are, the higher your blood pressure should be. Is this true? If so, then I'm confused with the 100/68 reading.
No blood pressure has a lot to do with family history, sodium intake, artery condtion, anxiety levels, stress levels, body structure. It also has to do with a lot of other things. Weight does not always mean high blood pressure. I am 6 foot, 230 pounds and my average blood pressure is 100\57. I feel great! This pressure is a little low but nothing to worry about at all. If you pressure starts to go below 95\55 there could be some concern, but your is perfect. Good job and have a nice day.
