I recently had my 16 b-day physical and they took my blood pressure(BP) the first time. It was 160/90. This is pretty high so i have heard. They thought it was just my nerves so they took it at the end of the exam and it was 149/85 still high. My mom and I still thought it was abnormally high so we went to Kroger and took it and it read 140/80,wich is better but still high. I play tennis for 2 hours 3 days a week, so i don't think it's that i am not fit. I am about 6'0" and 195lbs. Which I consider to be a little overweight but nothing too serious. I have the eating habits of a regular teenager. At least one soda a day, school lunch(pizza with fries or something similar.) I wouldn't consider myself to have a real stressful life, just that of a teenager. I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer because I am concered for my long term health. I would prefer you emailed me, but anyhelp is great. Thank you in advance.
