Yeah, learning and study and research and science are pretty progressive.

Yep.  New guidelines say 130 over 80 is now considered high.  At least, that is what I heard on the news last night.  So now, about half of the people over 40 have high blood pressure.

Buy pharmaceutical stocks of companies that make BP lowering drugs ASAP.

I got behind all the morons on the way to my oncology appointment last winter when there were a few fluffy snowflakes falling. When the nurse took my blood pressure she asked: “how was traffic on the way here?” She said she would check it later. It was fine.

I've been on Lisoprinil since April. Not real happy about it but I'm exercising more and eating better. Numbers are where they ought to be but have been high the last couple days. I blame that on the weekend drinking. I'm cutting back on that to manage my health better.

Saturday 113/82 58 bpm, Sunday 126/88 54, Monday 137/86 53, Tuesday 137/84 47

my average since April is 125/83 54 bpm

When I hit these levels years ago my doctor took a look at my family history as recommended a choice.  "mild control now" or "major repairs later".  I opted for the mild control and my blood pressure is routinely 110/70 during my office visits.  The problem is finding a doc who is willing to listen to you as you both try to find the proper medication for the mildest control possible.

That includes medication, diet and fitness.

mine sometimes hits 130 / 80, but is usually between 120-125 / 80.  has been as low as 110 / 80. 

I thought the lower number being 90+ was bad?

At any rate my PCP is fine with my bp and my resting HR

Actually, BP goes up and down during the day and night.  It is not unusual for anyone to have an elevated pressure at certain times of the day, depending on the individual's circumstances.  Checking it once every six months at the doctor's office may not give you a true and adequate indication of your particular BP condition.  If you really want to know what your BP is, you need to buy a quality BP/heart rate tester and check your pressure several times a day.  BP data is based on a resting condition when assessing low/normal/high and should be taken after you have been sitting still for several minutes and not right after eating.  Although my resting BP is typically 110/65, if I have been doing something quite strenuous (for me), I would not be alarmed to see a reading of 135/80.

Studies have shown that made up numbers are just as good as real numbers.  @Square Wheels has the graphic that supports this.
