Blood pressure question

  • Blood pressure question

    So recently I had a doctors visit, and had a blood pressure of 128/68 and I'm 20 years old. And I was wondering what is the blood pressure cut off on med exams is? Since I do intend to pursue firefighting as a career. I workout 5-6 times a week and run a 7min mile and a 14:30min 2 mile so I'm working on getting my cardiovascular fitness up which I hope should help lower my BP.

    Did the doctor indicate any problem or remedy?

    Is this your normal???


    Suggest even at your age have a heart doctor do a work up, with stress test and maybe nuc, just to make sure you have no problems, plus it gives you a base line to look back at.

      He didn't indicate it was a problem I just noticed it when I was handed back my medical report. And I honestly haven't taken a blood pressure reading in awhile so I'm not sure if it's my normal BP or not. I do know in was in traffic and somewhat rushing to get to the appointment since I got off work later than I anticipated, so that may have been a factor in the higher systolic reading considering my diastolic was lower than 70

        Your BP numbers should be OK. Base line is normally 120/80. 128 will not be a factor.
