    My blood pressure has being do odd thing as of late but I'm told it has to do with meds I take for a lung issue I have. Anyway, while I was investigating my blood pressure issue I read that the new standard for taking blood pressure medication is 140/90.

    Now.. has this helped your blood pressure?
    I'm sure there was nothing wrong with your blood pressure with that systolic reading, 122
    You're in a docs office FFS (hardly relaxing), but after being told it was high????
    a self fulfilling prophecy, if the doc says "don't worry, but..." then what's going to happen
    Well, I knew my BP was fine, the doctor did, as well. It was the paperwork on my exam that had "high" on it.

    I believe that anti-inflammatory steroids if that is what you are taking for your lung issue, may affect BP. I hope it's not too serious.

    My blood pressure was: 122/74 No meds at all.

    I thought my blood pressure was really good, but the print-out says that I have elevated blood pressure, according to the government. Wat?

    I weighed 192 with clothes on this morning, 187 no clothes earlier this morning and my height is 5'11".

    My Body Mass Index is 25-29, which according to the government, I am overweight. Wat?

    _________________________


    To me, this information is deceptive because for people who workout regularly, it has the potential to be dangerous, as a doctor might prescribe medication when you don't really need it. My doc didn't bring it up, but the print-out did.

    If my doctor had brought it up, I would have told him that I workout religiously, so please take that into consideration.

    This isn't shocking information except that it is probably safe to say that some people can be over-prescribed if they don't do a little research and IMO it is always a good idea to question a doctor on any prescriptions that have the potential to negatively affect your health.

    Cool story bro.

    Would read again.

    And why would you worry what the gubmint says regarding your health? Gubmint is evil. It wants to make you sick to depend on big pharma.

    At any rate, the last time I was at the doctor he grabbed my ballz and told me to cough.

    So I ran my fingers through his hair and whispered

    “Doc. Taxation is theft.”
    This above all..
    To thine ownself be true..
    And it must follow, as the night the day..

    Many years ago I had to pass a Norwegian Seamens medical (that's oilrigs/ships not semen, watch the spelling). I had bp reading during it which I passed, but next to the examination couch was a trolley with several boxes of surgical gloves and the biggest tube of lubricant I've ever seen, it was like a tube of mastic for building work. I'm still amazed my BP was normal, it certainly didn't make me feel relaxed about what might be in store. Thankfully the gloves and lube never figured in my medical exam.

    It seems they are preaching easier more affordable prescription meds, yet they use the doctors to take the fall when the drugs phuck them up?

    Mark, you're not overweight.
    Your weight to height ratio is off.

    You need to work on your height.

    I have a hard time thinking that any doctor would prescribe a medicine for your blood pressure. These values are for the general public and the general public isn't as physically fitness oriented as you.

    For most Americans, they are going to get fatter with age, and their corresponding blood pressure needs to be addressed earlier than it has been in the days of yor. Obesity and it's associated comorbidities is at least 70% of my business.

    You probably got the scare treatment because you didn't bring him flowers before the prostate exam. Doctors have feeling too! lol

    I agree with you, but it was the paperwork and not the doctor that stated I was over-weight. No prescription was discussed.

    Lots of fatties, though.

    My last trip to the VA went like this.
    -I roll in, they do my height 5'6, weight 168. I sit back in chair. The nurse case practitioner was a 5'8 350 lb woman. I am being generous on weight guess. Well she says "Sir according to bmi you're obese" I lifted my shirt and said "I'm under 6% bodyfat, I have drank a gallon of water so far today and you are drinking Mountain Dew, calm down". Mark you are fine dude.

    Remember muscle weighs more than fat.
    120-129 is "elevated" based on the new charts, but unless it jumps or remains high why worry?
