Dear L
Blood sugar goes up and down depending on what and when you eat - a fasting blood sugar is the one you should be looking at. A blood pressure of 143/109 is a bit high but also one should not look at only one reading as stress, exercise, anxiousness, etc can cause increase in BP. It is better to take BP daily for a week and work out the average. If the average above is more than 120 and bottom more than 90, he needs to see a doctor to do some tests and see if he needs to take medication, and what kind is needed.
