Thanks for that.

 

Where did you find it?

 

Having looked at that and compared it with my BP readings I feel happier as I am in the right zone.

Do not know how long the intake of salt lasts, but took another test just now  105/68 pulse 69....but I am stressed the Thai GF  giving me some stick about my 5 dogs, but I enjoy a jog with them

This is a very good reading, and one might possibly  expect readings on the low side for a jogger.

 

My own heart beat can drop to 45, though 55 is about normal.

 

Salt only makes a small difference in the majority of people, as it is the cumulative and compounded effect that causes damage.

Thank you for that.

 

I am running a daily log of my BP as an .odt file in Libre Office and each daily entry is in 2 parts. The first entry is the average of 5 readings when I have just finished working and the 2nd entry is the average of 5 readings when I have had a shower, breakfast and I am relaxed about an hour later.

 

I think that I will try to make a daily line chart just of the second reading for Sys, Dia and Pulse rate. Something to keep me occipied for a while and an easy print out that I can take when I go for my 3 monthly check up at the hospital.

.Christ,it stresses me out when I see results of 96/64,still had a stress free life really,(uniformed) public sector,so sat on my ass mostly,....remember getting socked in the face by a nurse donkeys years ago in middle of the night when lying in hospital bed trying to wake the dead , thanks Sheryl,but I'll keep taking the salt

 Just bought the monitor  HEM 7124   Omron

 

Do as you like, but by any standard, 96/64 is not only a normal BP but a healthy one. Systolic 9-120 and diastolic 60 -80 are considered the ideal range.

 

The cut off point for low BP is below 90/60, though some people -- usually ones who are very thin -- normally run in the 80's over 50's without problem.

 

If you are experiencing dizziness, need to look for other causes as a BP in the range you mention will not cause dizziness except in someone who normally runs much higher.

Wish I had 96/64.

Hijacking my own thread.  Been monitoring my BP for the past month or so since buying home tester. 

 

I'm just about in the pre-hypertension stage, averaging around 133/85 but some days i'm stage 1 hypertension.

 

Some observations since I started monitoring, which may not be of use to anyone but just in case:

 

I have problems with anxiety and I can say that anxiety definitely impacts BP (both systolic and diastolic).  Had read that diastolic shouldn't be affected by anxiety/ panic attacks but it is in my case.  The worst reading I have taken in the past month was 165/109 when I was anxious and hungover.  Diastolic of 110 is apparently a medical emergency /trip to A&E, which didn't help the anxiety.  Managed to relax and within a few hours I was back in normal-ish range around 130/80.

 

After exercise, my blood pressure is lower.  I think the general expectation would be an increase in systolic but not always in my case.  Again I link this to anxiety.  I'm generally not anxious after exercise (opposite) and regularly have readings around 125/75 an hour or two after exercise.  Lower BP after exercise is also meant to be a sign of a heart problem but hopefully not...

 

I actually think anxiety is playing a big part in my BP overall.  I probably have a low level anxiety for 80% of the time I'm awake.  I'm sure if I was happier / more at ease, my readings would improve.

 

After moderate drinking, my blood pressure is as low as I've seen it.  A day of exercise followed by about 4 beers gave me my lowest readings at 115/60.  This wasn't a one off.  Everytime I drink a few beers my BP drops.  Hangover is usually complete opposite though - 150/90 or worse.

I think you are about in the normal range. 

 

Anxiety can make a nonsense of BP readings.

 

What's your heart rate?
