For many years I have had persistant elevated diastolic and low systolic BP readings both at home and in physicians' offices. Lisinopril/HCTZ has lowered the diastolic reading to the low 70's from high 90's but my systolic readings range in the low 100's (under 115). Should I be concerned with this?
According to what you're saying you are in the "pre-stages" of high blood pressure....just watch what you eat and you should be fine...but make sure you dont let it drop below 90/70...after that you may have low blood pressure which can be as much of a pain as high blood pressure
my blood pressure readings have been in the range of 130/56 for 2 wks (pulse 58) however for the past 2 days it has been 132/46. I am 66 yrs old and female. I am taking crestor. 32 mg.
Should I be concerned?
