HI MTC members...

Recently I have my BP check and it showed that it is High according to the nurse.
Systolic = 130
Diastolic= 90
Then I monitored my BP since then and the Diastolic remains at 90 and sometimes it reached to 100.

I am just a bit confused since I am still young and regulary working out in gym, and we do not have a history of hypertension in the family...

Besides having an exercise for 15 mins everyday and having a healty diet and lifestyle what can we do to maintain our BP at normal level.

So for our MTC Doctors here, hope you can share your professional knowledge on what we should do or avoid.

For members who have hypertension, please share your ideas and personal experienced here. I think there are some members who are also interested in knowing what they can do to avoid hypertension.

baka naman may konting nerbyos habang kinikuhanan ka ng BP pre.
for remedies, try taking garlic oil or garlic tablets.

this topic fits right up my alley... it looks like your bp is normal but a tad high... but it shouldnt be a concern except when you reach 100 or higher.

how old are you? how much do you weigh and how tall are you?

unless hypertension runs in your family, your lifestyle is a determinant of your blood pressure. avoid stress, take time to relax. 15minutes exercise in not enough. have your cholesterol levels checked as well.

unless you will have them blended and drink them by the glass, medyo matagal ang epekto nyan.
bos masi's advice sounds ok enough.

be careful with the garlic...1 piece (yung local) or 1/2 of the imported is good enough every other day. too much garlic can lead to heart burn, gas pains, body odor and bad breath.

nothing beats 30 minutes of moderate, and constant pace exercise. be sure to consult your doctor before starting a physical activity (parang ad sa dyaryo!)

based on these information, you are not overweight (164 pounds @ 5'6"). no history of hypertension and cholesterol is on normal level.

baka lang stressed ka bro. i would suggest just taking it easy.

yes, i agree with google... it seems like it's an isolated episode. you may want to trim down abit to 158 in the next 3 months. then go to 150 by december. these are "workable" weight loss targets.

you can do this by increasing intensity of your exercise and skipping the afternoon merienda or that mid night snack or that extra bottle of beer.

but before you do all these... for your own peace of mind, your friends and your family. see a doctor.

Thank you boss Masi and Goggle for that piece of advice... I already consulted a doctor and he said i don't need any medication yet since, i am still young. He suggested a complete change in lifestyle like avoiding salty food and a small amount of meat for the meals.

And he recommended a no alcohol for three consecutive months... ohhh boy.... i can't imagine how am i, every friday night without 2 bottles of SM lights in the gimiks....

that's good!!!! nothing can be better than what the doctor told you. instead of beer, drink at most 2 glasses of red wine. it has good medical long term benefits, my doc told me to take it in moderation.

enjoy life, live life... you have much ahead!!!!

agree with mr. masi.... a glass of red wine OR BRANDY everynight (as a nightcap) can be good for you on a long term basis. just make sure don't overdo it....

Just wanted to share some research here...

What Are High Blood Pressure and Prehypertension?
Blood pressure is the force of blood against the walls of arteries. Blood pressure rises
and falls throughout the day. When blood pressure stays elevated over time, it’s called
high blood pressure.

The medical term for high blood pressure is hypertension. High blood pressure is dangerous
because it makes the heart work too hard and contributes to atherosclerosis (hardening
of the arteries). It increases the risk of heart disease (see box 1) and stroke, which are the
first- and third-leading causes of death among Americans. High blood pressure also can
result in other conditions, such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease, and blindness.


A blood pressure level of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered high. About two-thirds
of people over age 65 have high blood pressure. If your blood pressure is between
120/80 mmHg and 139/89 mmHg, then you have prehypertension. This means that you
don’t have high blood pressure now but are likely to develop it in the future unless you
adopt the healthy lifestyle changes described in this brochure. (See box 2.)
People who do not have high blood pressure at age 55 face a 90 percent chance of
developing it during their lifetimes. So high blood pressure is a condition that most
people will have at some point in their lives.

Both numbers in a blood pressure test are important, but for people who are age 50
or older, systolic pressure gives the most accurate diagnosis of high blood pressure.
Systolic pressure is the top number in a blood pressure reading. It is high if it is
140 mmHg or above.
Risk factors are conditions or behaviors that increase your chances of developing a disease. When you have more than one risk factor for heart disease, your risk of developing heart disease greatly multiplies. So if you have high blood pressure, you need to take action. Fortunately, you can control most heart disease risk factors.

Risk factors you can control: Risk factors beyond your control:
• High blood pressure • Age (55 or older for men; 65 or older for women)
• Abnormal cholesterol • Family history of early heart disease (having a father or
• Tobacco use brother diagnosed with heart disease before age 55 or
• Diabetes having a mother or sister diagnosed before age 65)
• Overweight
• Physical inactivity

Box 2

Blood Pressure Levels for Adults

Systolic† Diastolic† Result
Category (mmHg)‡ (mmHg)‡

Normal less than 120 and less than 80 Good for you!

Prehypertension 120-139 or 80-89 Your blood pressure could
be a problem. Make
changes in what you eat
and drink, be physically
active, and lose extra
weight. If you also have
diabetes, see your doctor.

Hypertension 140 or higher or 90 or higher You have high blood
pressure. Ask your doctor or
nurse how to control it.

I've been living with high blood pressure for more than 20 years and I will be 50 years old this year. If one is worried about high BP, the best is to consult a specialist physician, an cardiologist, a neurologist or a nephrologist. These medical practicioners will recommend the proper physical and laboratory tests to find out the underlying cause of high BP. My highest BP was 180/110 when I was in my mid-20s. Of course, being young, one feels immortal and I continued eating anything and drinking a lot. With medication, my BP averaged 130/90 and of course was classified as a hypertensive.

However, with proper diet (low-salt, less meat, more fruits and vegetables) and serious excercise, I have been able to reduce my average BP. I am now doing 110/70 and feeling great.

Good luck, mga pre!
