How's your blood pressure?

ninerbuffninerbuff Member, Greeter Posts: 45,626 Member Member, Greeter Posts: 45,626 Member
One of the first indications that something may be afoot in your health is blood pressure reading. I can do my own daily, but I once a week works. So what's yours? And if you don't know when's the last time you had it done and what was it?

Mine today: 109/64

    My last reading was 127/65. I was on blood pressure meds. That's one of the reasons I decided to get back in shape. I only take my meds a few times a week now.

    Mine was last taken about 3 months back by the nurse when I went for contraceptive check. I had been rushing to the appointment and it was before I started any regular exercise and was 130/80 I'd be interested to see if regular exercise and a better diet has lowered it

    I LOVE this chart. I'm a dental hygienist and would love to have it for my patients, do you know where I could get an easily printable one? Thanks! Oh, and ps. My blood pressure is always fine, just not my cholesterol.

    The last time I gave blood (07/29/11), it was 108/68. Giving blood again this Saturday, so I'm looking forward to seeing how or if it has changed.

    I don't know the numbers but mine is always low, even when I was 40 lbs heavier than I am now. Nurses used to look at me in surprise. some people just run low. I try to focus on keeping my blood pressure high through hydration or else I'm prone to vertigo when i stand up.

    I last read mine around February/March, I went to do it again yesterday and realised the monitor is broken now so going to have to wait :(

    Last time it was around 120/early 70's. It used to be around 140/early 90's, I wasn't "overweight" and because I was young (17/18) my dr thought something was wrong to be causing it, there wasn't anything wrong. As soon as I lost a little weight, started exercising alot more it dropped right down.

    The highest mine has ever been was 160/110. I was on blood pressure meds for a few years, but now that I've lost weight my doctor told me I don't need to take them anymore. Just a mild water pill now. The last check was 116/76. Love the chart!

    Thank God, I have always had great blood pressure. When I checked it last week I was 122/80.

    I checked maybe 2 months ago. It was 120/70 if I recall. Mine usually ranges from 120-128/65-75.
