Took BP before eating high carb meal 127/85 pulse 80, then stood for 12mins. Bp was 108/85 pulse 146 does this suggest postprandial hypotension?

Took BP before eating high carb meal 127/85 pulse 80, then stood for 12mins. Bp was 108/85 pulse 146 does this suggest postprandial hypotension?

Rapid heart rhythm: Your b p dropped significantly after standing but the pulse rate of 146 was very rapid. I wonder if this was accurate. We're you lightheaded when your b p dropped? If not, then it is not problematic. A heart rate of 146 would be problematic. Double check your pulse to be sure and see how long it takes to return to normal. Discussion with your physician is recommended. ...Read more

Can a donut with 380 cals., 21g fat, 15mg cholesterol, 460mg sodium, 46g carbohydrates, 25g sugar raise your blood sugar, cholesterol &blood pressure?

Poor diet: I am a bit surprised. You do not need a physician to tell you that eating a high sugar food would raise your blood sugar. Testing for cholesterol in a non-fasting state makes the test completely invalid. One donut would not cause the disease of hypertension. ...Read more

This can usually be controlled by eating smaller meals more frequently and by limiting simple sugars, replacing them with complex carbohydrates and fiber. If symptoms persist despite this management, see doctor for blood testing for insulin levels and such. ...Read more
