I read it somewhere that the standing bp should be lower than sitting or lying bp. In my case it turned out to be opposite.
Here are some readings from last couple of days:
Left Arm Average -> 114/72
Right Arm Average -> 119/73
Left Arm Average -> 115/72
Right Arm Average -> 119/80
Left Arm Average -> 135/88
Right Arm Average -> 150/100
What's wrong here? I am not sure the digital monitor I use it at home is supposed to measure the right arm and standing bp or not. It is Omron HEM-703CP. Does anybody know about this monitor?
What should I do? I guess I can't live all my life sitting or lying, can I?
Also why there's huge difference in right arm and left arm bps?
Other than the last blood pressure you list, all others are normal. It is not necessarily the case that your blood pressure should be lower when you stand. A difference in blood pressures betweeen arms can indicate certain diseases, but I do not see a significant difference between arms in the measurements that you list. There can be a significant amount of variation between blood pressure form minute to minute - this is not abnormal.
What types of diseases are associated with different readings depending upon which arm is used? My son's left arm usually reads quite a bit higher than the right, but no docs have ever mentioned that as being a factor.
My son is 16 and very sport orianted. Itook his bp and it ranges between 150/88 and 158/90. I feel this is to high for him. Should i be conserned? And how do i take steps to get it down? His pulse run 60-64 is this good?
