Have you had any other blood pressure readings since your 147/76?
Hey machaon...basically 6 weeks ago i decided to lose weight, i was 5ft 11, inactive, ate junk and weighed 14st
I switched to lots of fruit n veg, NO junk food, some nuts, a little fish and some lean meat etc, took up running and weight training again.
Ive lost a stone... But its played havoc with...my digestive system making me quite irregular so to speak, but i dont think its related...
As to other measurements, nope, last one before was 6 months ago (when i was fat) and that was at the docs for a check up too... it was 130/70 then i think... so its odd that its gone up despite me being in much better shape..
