: : My blood pressure has been running around 174/104 after meals, could anyone please tell me why this would happen
: I too have noticed an increase in BP after a meal, especially when eating a normal sized meal.
: I think that as the stoumach fills with blood and other things to digest the food, the BP goes up.
