HBP with COPD
I am 75 years old with mild to moderate COPD for which I take no medication.  My blood pressure can be between 130 to 152 over 82 to 90.  However 1 to 2 hours of fairly intensive tennis it is 101/63 or an hour after alcohol intake is 90/53.   Does that make any sense?


This discussion is related to High BP but Low pulse rate.

Hello,
In COPD there may be high blood pressure in the arteries which bring blood to the lungs resulting in pulmonary hypertension.COPD also increases the risk of heart attacks. I will advise you to consult a physician for your high blood pressure. Low salt diet and medications for lowering blood pressure may help. Stay away from stress and go for a walk every day. Do keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
