Stage 2 hypertension

Hi there Doc, my blood pressure after step aerobic exercise is 130/103 and my resting blood pressure is 105/69. I was told that I have stage 2 hypertension, is that true?

Dear Bambi

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I recommend that you have a 24 hour blood pressure monitor done, to determine exactly what your blood pressure does over a 24 hour period. Exercise will increase your blood pressure, as well as your resting pulse and therefore, it is important to have the test done to make sure that you are suffering from hypertension or not.

Regards
