Thread: Got the shock of my life - blood pressure

  1. #1

    Default Got the shock of my life - blood pressure

    Went to donate blood this morning and they measured my blood pressure..

    140/70 with a resting pulse of 62 ...

    I'm off to go and see my GP (who's also my dad )

    I've always have had EXCELLENT cardiovascular health - never been sick (although a wee bit sinus 2 months ago)

    I weigh about 80 kg and 1.85m in height...

    What should mine be? I'm 30. I'm an ectomorph. I weigh 80, although I should weigh 75>. I drink moderately ... everyday at the most 2 (only since the beginning of this year). I don't eat excessively or really unhealthely. Typical bachelor food. I don't smoke ... never have, never will.

    Not sure what exactly mine is but I know it has been low on occasions. I cant stand the sms's they send through constantly to get you to donate again. Irritates me like mad!

    Afaik the pressure is heavily influenced by loads of factors. (Hours since last sleep, movements before test, eating, coffee consumption etc). So I wouldn't stress about the measurement....but do take another one & make sure.

    Mine is low but will shot up as the stress piles on.
    Beware weapons grade stupidity in post following this one

    I went to the doc the other day as I was sick and she took my blood pressure and although I cant remember what it was she said it is perfectly normal. What causes blood pressure??
