although my systolic numbers are in the region of <120> with the diastolic usually averaging around 70 - 75 both of which I'm happy with. Just occasionaly I might get <155> and sometimes the diastolic reading can be over 100.
When filling in risk questionnaires such as Qrisk2, they only ask for the systolic reading and never the diastolic reading. Why is this? Once or twice I've had diastolic readings of over 100 which is alarming but how important is this.
When I was originally diagnosed with hypertension and before I bought my monitor or even went on medication, my regular trips to the surgery gave me very high readings causing the dr to say that I had hypertension of both systolic and diastolic numbers. Should I be worried? 155>120>
