Question
Posted by: Anon | 2008/12/15

BP readings

I am pregnant for the second time and with both pregnancies my blood pressure is too high

Which reading is more important (or more dangerous), the top or bottom and could you explain to me how it works? (the top and bottom readings)

They are both important if very high. The top reading gives a higher risk of stroke, etc and the bottom reading of damage to other organs.
