I'm only 35 years old but struggling somewhat with high BP. My backstory is that when I went to the doc when I was around 31 he said it was high at 150/90, which was a shock to me. Since until then I've never had a problem.
Somehow I seemed to get it under control a year or so later (not sure how) and it was somewhere around 135/80 on average. Still a bit high but ok.
But now the doc said it's around 150 again and sure enough when I bought my own monitor it does seem to be that. I've been doing exercise in the last few months and lost about 4 kg's, so was hoping that would get me back into a good zone but the average now is only about 145. Hardly any difference.
My BMI is 25.3 (5'9" and 79kg) so not too bad. Although my waist measurement is 98cm which is apparenty over the 94cm mark that is considered "fat". (it is a bit flabby to be honest).
I also get kinda nervious taking my BP (even when at home) so could that do anything to the readings?? (higher or lower)
Kinda at a loss to get it under control. The doc hasn't put me on meds yet but if I can't get it under control soon I was ask for some myself. Is there anything I'm missing?
