Bp Readingafter Eating
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

Managed high BP. healthy diet. Exercise regularly - HIIT. Prediabetic. Cholesterol borderline.Why heart rate increase rapidly after a short day nap?
Heart rate is: regulated under autonomic control and function. Aging, glucose intolerance, medications, physical condition and hydration can all have effects on the autonomic system resulting in variability to the heart rate response to various activities. Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
?Male hot flash(sweat, BP 194/86, pulse 78&irreg by meter. Lasted 15 mins. Just standing in kitchen. Recent cardio exams ok. Taking potass/mag supp
Doubt it. : The irregular rhythm can mean atrial fibrillation, a condition that can be intermittent enough that a routine cardiac work up might miss it. A blood pressure that high should be evaluated right away, even intermittently . I would suggest seeing your doctor as soon as convenient. A "male hot flash" would not explain this. ...Read more

Diabetes Control: Fasting under 100 is normal, treated under 120 is pretty good, over 140 not so good. 2 hours after meals normal is 140 to 150 and good control is the same , add 10-20 or so.

Controversial: Systolic BP is the maximum pressure in your arteries with a heart beat. Diastolic BP is resting pressure in your arteries between heart beats. Current 2013 guildines found Grade E (poor/opinion) evidence for treating Systolic BP > 140 in those aged <60 and Grade A (very good) evidence for treating Diastolic BP >90. This may indicate diastolic BP is more important but depends on level of each. ...Read more

Using omrom BP reader and this morning i'm getting 124/87. How can I lower this BP reading? How often per day to check for an average BP reading?
Automated: All automated machines need to be calibrated. To know what the pressure on your machine means you need to compare it to a mercury manometer. If it is indeed accurate then you can use the readings. Low salt diet such as dash diet and daily aerobic exercise along with avoiding smoking are good steps for all. ...Read more
Solution for isolated systolic hypertension 158/70 and triglycerides 220? Total cholesterol normal, not overweight, daily exercise, healthy diet.
It is unlikely: that you will be able to modify these abnormal findings without additional pharmacological intervention. An extreme diet of withholding sodium (<1gm) and very low carbohydrate might help but would be unpleasant. Your health care provider should be able to advise you and prescribe additional medication that will allow you to improve the numbers while still living an acceptable life style. ...Read more

Gluc level 65 one hour after eating salad w/croutons, salmon, & caramel apple. Not diabetic (I think). Is this LOW gluc level unusual? Problematic?
Not a problem: Hi. We've got to stop meeting like this! ;-) No, that glucose is fine and not low. In a person who takes insulin, we'd be getting concerned, because injected insulin will lower sugar whether the patient needs sugar lowered further or not. But your pancreas will automatically regulate insulin release to keep sugar normal. Glucoses in the 60s and 50s are seen all the time in healthy non-diabetics. ...Read more
Baseline & fasting blood sugar is always normal. Blood sugar drops to 45/55 about an hour After eating a sugary meal. Is this dangerous?
Reactive hypoglycemi: This sounds like reactive hypoglycemia, essentially an overreaction of the pancreas to a large load of ingested sugar. 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
