Hi i was asked by my dr to check my blood pressure using the machine in the reception. i went friday evening and my first reading was 171/78 2nd was 149/77 and 3rd 111/61 these were all taken within 3 minuets. could being anxious cause it to be that high?
i tried again yesterday and it was 151/80 then 120/70 . i used a friends machine at home and got 117/80.
ive ordered a machine so i can check it myself but im really worried about that first number. i gave the receptionist the lowest number on friday now i think im wrong and should have given them all.
im 34 diagnosed type 2 diabetic last year but having lost 4 stone and changed my eating and exercise habits im now in remission.
