  • Isolated Systolic Hypertension

    Drs. Feigenbaum and Baraki,

    I am doing some "health" research at my University on athletes and nonathletes. While I was getting my equipment ready I tested out the blood pressure monitor, It gave me a reading of 132/63. I was pretty shocked so I when I got home I checked again, this time it was 131/61.

    Some stats about me:
    I am 18 years young
    I weigh 177 pounds and have a waist measurement of 33.5 inches.
    I am Alex's client. (AN AMAZING HUMAN, SHOUT OUT TO HIM)
    I am 99.9% sure I am checking all boxes listed on the prioritizing health article.
    One side of my family is known to die from heart attacks and the other side is known to have blood pressures of 90/60.

    I would appreciate any feedback on my situation.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Glad you're having a good experience with Alex. Regarding your blood pressure, I agree this is elevated, particularly based on your age/weight/waist. I would recommend seeing a primary care physician for re-check and potentially pursuing ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, if indicated, to confirm the diagnosis before pursuing further treatment.
