Just a quick one as I’m back from the doctors where my blood pressure (after 4 weeks of increasing amounts of an ACE inhibitor) is now 144/86.
The upper number (systolic) is easily changed, run up a flight of stairs and it’ll rise. Sit still for 20 minutes and it will fall. The lower number (diatolic) is harder to change so that’s the one I was focusing on, so I was delighted to see it well below 100.
Considering the readings that started all this were 196/122 then it’s fair to say that the downward trend is favourable.
