wine, caffeine and blood pressure
for the first time, I've had high blood pressure at the doctor's office. 155/95
After 15 minutes of taking it on a machine in her office, it came back down to 133/88 ish range.
I'm concerned so I've given it some thought
I am female, 46 year old, 136 lbs, non smoker, jog, bike, weight lifting, very good diet.
first of all, should I be worried?
I think part of my problem may be coffee and wine
I drink appx 4 cups of coffee per day and (shame) between 3 to 4 glasses of wine 4 times a week.
I've cut all that out. and I'll get a bp monitor and keep an eye on it.
What are your thoughts?
