What does it mean to have high blood pressure? Since blood pressure fluctuates all day, how is it correctly disgnosed?
PERSISTENTLY high.: You're right, blood pressure (BP) varies. But Hypertension is the condition characterized by PERSISTENTLY high BP. Screening is performed by recording BP> 140/90 mmHg after 5 min in a quiet dark room. (Pre-hypertension at 120/80). Normally, 5 min of rest will lower the BP to its lowest value. In hypertension, the BP is consistently elevated throughout the day. Ambulatory BP monitoring can confirm. ...Read more
Now that my IONIZED CALCIUM is low and my INTACT PTH is high, does it mean or does it confirm that I have kidney disease?
Not diagnostic: Hi. Low ionized calcium and high PTH (a condition called secondary hyperparathyroidism) is in no way diagnostic of kidney disease. Secondary hyperparathyroidism may be seen in kidney disease. Kidney disease is usually diagnosed by an elevated serum creatinine and sometimes by other things like protein or blood in the urine. There are common non-kidney causes of secondary hyperparathyroidism. ...Read more

Hello there I have hypertension ?High) and started hCG yesterday (novarel) it seems like it elevated my BP is this possible? What does it mean?
Take action: The easiest way to reduce high cholesterol is by stopping high carb foods (grains, lentils, potato based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance.

Large red bloodcells: If the MCH level is over 34, this is considered to be too high. The main reason that the MCH level would be too high is because of macrocytic anemia. Macrocytic anemia is a blood disorder in which not enough red blood cells are produced, but the ones that are present are large (thus fitting more hemoglobin). Macrocytic anemia is often caused by having too little vitamin B12 or folic acid. ...Read more
Mis-stated: FEV is the amount of air you can force out during expiration. The usual measurement is FEV1 - the amount of air you can force out in 1 second. Both numbers are always positive - it can't be negative. I suspect you may mean that your FEV1 is 51% of predicted. That is significant. I urge you to continue all treatments prescribed, maintain follow up with your lung specialist, and join a rehab group. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Problem if symptoms: Low blood pressure is not usually a clinical problem unless accompanied by symptoms like faintness, dizziness or impaired levels of consciousness.

What exactly does it mean to have low blood pressure one day, and then high blood pressure the next?
Nothing by itself: Pulse and BP are just numbers, and mean almost nothing in isolation. More important is the patient...Are they sick? Well? Dizzy? Dehydrated? Feel great? Just had a heart attack? Granted, if a pulse or BP are too low, then doctors might be concerned no matter how they looked, but more important is the "rest of the story". ...Read more
"Low" is semantic: "normal" blood pressure is an arbitrary thing--i.e. Lower cutoffs of 100 systolic, 60 diastolic were created b/c above these are where the vast majority of people fall. However, many healthy people, as well as some people with heart or liver disease who are perfectly stable, have BP in the 80-90s range. The main point is if it is a change from your personal baseline, and whether you have symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
