Re: Is 130/92 considered high?
One thing to keep in mind is that if you run stressed all day your BP is probably running high all day, so taking it when you are at your most relaxed is probably giving you baseline, not average.
What your doc is probably concerned about is the diastolic (lower number). A high diastolic in younger people is worse than a high systolic based on concerns about how that reading correlates to heart disease. I turn 40 Tuesday and she categorizes me as "younger".
That's why my doc wanted me on a slightly higher dose of medication. My diastolic was running around 95-105 during my worst time of day on lowest dose so we upped it. Goal was for diastolic to be under 85 on average during my worst time of day (evenings).
