Re: Question about exercise with HBP
As Rick mentioned, during dynamic exercise, the systolic rate should rise steadily as the intensity of the exercise increases, while the diastolic rate should change very little. ...
A good rule of thumb is...If the diastolic rate increases by 20 above the resting value, or reaches 120 or above, then exercise should be stopped. But your doctor may feel a different "threshold" number is okay for you.
What is your resting diastolic when you monitor it at home?
