Re: 140/75 should i worry?
Unless you have heart disease or have a high risk for heart disease, which I assume you don't, the point at which you are considered to have high blood pressure is 140/90 or higher based on a resting rate. The good thing about your BP is that your diastolic (2nd number) is below 80. This is the pressure in your arteries between heart beats.
You are doing everything right. The only thing I could add would be limiting salt in your diet subject to your exercise program. If you sweat a lot due to your exercise program, you may not want to limit salt that much below the accepted level of salt intake of about 2,400 mgs per day.
When you go to a doctor or dentist you may suffer, like many people, from what is called "White Coat Syndome". This tends to increase your BP, not usually more than about 10 points for both numbers, and your doctor takes this into account.
To learn more about high blood pressure (hypertension), I suggest you visit the web site of The American Heart Assn. at <A HREF="http://www.americanheart.org." TARGET=_blank>http://www.americanheart.org.</A> Click on their Heart & Stroke A-Z Guide found on the left side of their home page. Then click on "H" and then go down to "Hypertension", click on this, and find out more about hypertension.
At this point you seem to be O.K. with your blood pressure, but if you have a family history of high blood pressure, it is well that you keep checking it from time to time.
By the way, your BP later in the day, especially after work, can be a little higher just because of the strain of the day. Also, due to the normal waking up process in the morning before you have breakfast, your BP can be a little higher.
At this point, your BP seems to be under control, but the fact that you are having a complete physical is a good thing.
