Monitor, don't worry: Sounds like you're doing the right things! Be sure to pay attention to your diet. A history of hypertension in your family may also increase your risk - be sure to follow your blood pressure with your doctor. Taking steps to keep your blood pressure low has important benefits for the future. No need to become stressed about an occasional borderline elevation of you BP - just follow your plan!
