Hallo Help needed
The best way to evaluate your blood pressure is to have your blood pressure tested daily by the same person (try your local pharmacy) and let them work out the average for you over 7 days. If the average is >140 at the top and > 90 at the bottom, you need to have further tests - like cholesterol, kidney functions, a heart evaluation and they need to look for treatable causes of the hypertension. If there are no causes and it is familial, you probably need to go on medication.
