Our expert says:
blood pressure is not something that stays stable - it goes up and down during the day. A better way to determine if your BP is really too high is to take your BP same time every day by same person and same machine and work out the average over 5-7 days. If then too high (>140 at the top, >90 at the bottom) you probably need further examination ( ECG, kidney functions etc)
I think you should do a Fasting Cholesterol and Fasting Glucose at a lab like Ampath.
