    G.P concernred about my blood pressure

    Blood pressure is usually really good, thought i would have it checked out today due to having some headaches which i never have and my bp turned out to be 154/78...they told me they want to keep check of it every 2 weeks and go from there. Are these readings anything to be worried about, according to them it's high but especially for my age

    The 150 # is up there and 78 is good.
    Be sure to get lots of fluids limit sodium intake and some good solid cardio 3x a week.
    You need to watch this are you currently running a cycle?

    Hawthorn berry extract. Get some. Take 900mg a day. You'll see a drop within 2 weeks. I can run a gram of Tren and stay around 130/80. Earlier this year on 1000 test and 100mg dbol it was 117/72. I swear by that stuff

    HBE did more for me than my script ever did. Now I don't take my bp meds, no need.

    when I was a paramedic the normal BP was 120/80 but new guide lines consider that reading pre-hypertension. I recently was put on BP meds. I didnt even know I had High BP until i went in for my annual check up. I thought perhaps it was being on trt and blood was thick. I stopped all gear for a month and it was still reading high. 148/95 consistently. My resting heartrate is 56. O2 sat 99%. Im 5.9 160lbs pretty lean. So I am in shape so genetics is screwing me. I tried Herbal method but only came down a few points.

    Get on a BP med is you can and take care of your health.

    you need more than one high reading to consider yourself truly hypertensive. thats why your doc wants to check again in 2 wks. in the meantime, watch your diet and do more LISS cardio if you can.

    Next week, try to go in without taking any stimulants. Not even coffee. And get enough sleep the night before. If its still high, then you may need some treatment.
