Hi friends, Last week I told my doctor to check my Blood Pressure, which read 100/77, which to me sounded very strange as I know the normal should be 120/80. But the doctor said your blood pressure is EXCELLENT..........Do you think he is right.......has anybody else this kind of problem. Do share with me.......Thank you.

Hi Aps ....My Bp when I checked on 12 th of this month was 119/78.....But since I checked it at home by myself I do not have any doctor's comment.... But dear ,if your doctor is happy with your Bp I cannot understand why you appear to be so sad about it???.....ppppsssstt...tell me....what is your doctor's age...I am reminded of the proverb..... An apple a day keeps the doctor away... But if the doctor is handsome keep the apple away.... Well Jokes aside.....since you are not having a high Bp it appears you are in good health.So stay happy ,but try to limit your intake of salt and sugar,and try to maintain your Bp at optimum level as much as you can...Good luck and good health to you.....

Hi dearest.......how are you. I am not at all sad about the subject, didn't you see me laughing in the discussion....and about apple....I am sailing in the same boat with you..and in this case, I think I will buy some more apples.... Ha ha ha.....you are telling me to limit my salt intake while hubby told me that my blood has no pressure ,so I must eat extra salt...hey bhagwan ab meh kya karoo, ake taraf hai pati parmeshwar aur doosri taraf dil ki dhakan....ab is salt ka kya karooooo

Mine used to be low like that and the docs never said it was a problem. Obviously if it gets too low, you're not going to be well. But I had numbers like that and I was perfectly OK.

Hello apsara, how your doctor said that the BP value 100/77 is excellent, because I always heard that the normal value is or can say excellent value is 120/80 as you mentioned, I do a lot of work daily and my inconsistent daily routine gives me this kind of problem sometime but my BP goes up to 150/90 whenever I have problem otherwise normally my BP is 100-105/80-85, but I can suggest you to do some yoga for getting out of this BP inconsistency.

Execellent or accident doesn't matters. Tulsi das has said " Tulsi maya raam ki, Nirbhay hokey soye ; Unhonee honee nahi, Honee ho toh hoye". Is liye just forget every thing and enjoylife in present. Be positive Didi. GoD is great.

I guess your doctor had assumed that your Blood pressure to be excellent because of his other considerations depending on your case and lifestyle as normal. The blood pressure of 120/80 is the average normal range that is considered normal for all people but not specifically mean the measurement of the numbers in exact. The blood pressure counts the sytolic and diastolic range. His diagnosis for you has been based on many contributory factors that under his basis is considered normal. If a person blood pressure is constant to be that range plus his illnesses, then there is something really wrong about your condition. But, if the person had a below or high blood pressure that time because of the activities he made before taking the blood pressure. It will be recorded abnormal in count but normal to be considered because of the predisposing factor. Then after a couple of hours when the person will be taken again for blood pressure test, it will fall to normal again.

Thank you Genericbe, your reply gives lot of information. Yes you are right , bp does depend on the activities that we are doing. Also you are right, it also depends on lifestyle of a person. As long as I am not sick, I don't think I should worry. Have a nice day.

Hi apsara! Though I have limited knowledge about medicine and related fields. However, I feel that if upper side of your BP reads 100, it means you are suffering from 'low blood pressure' (though I am not sure about it). Alternatively, you can get your BP checked up from some other place/Doctor or after few days and can find out, what is the exact position.

Hello Deepak, how are you. I know I have low BP, but as long as it does not create any problem , I ignore it. I have checked my bp in past by various doctors and also at home,but always reading is some what same. My blood is not hasty like me, so it flows slowly.....aaraam se........

i keep forgetting the medical terms but I think it’s the lower one that matters the most. Ideally the lower mark should be 80 but as we all know, such things are accepted as normal within a short range and I think 77 falls within that short range…so your pressure would be considered as normal. At least you don’t have high BP and that’s a big relief. Low BP is always the less dangerous and can be taken care of good food and rest. In any case, you don’t have low BP so don’t worry over it.

hello sudiptacallingu, how are you. Yes it is good that I don't have high bp......Even I have heard that low BP is not very dangerous, unless it goes too down.Thanks for your reply.

If the Doctor is not worried then why are you so worried dear? Or is it because you now have no reasons to go to the doctor . (You know what I mean???) My blood pressure too is around 100/70 quite often but my doctor too tells me that I have nothing to worry and I am happy that I do not have to visit him often to check my pressure !!!

Hello Mayka, How are you. I am not worried at all about my BP.......and about doctors, even if he was handsome one.....I don't think I would like to visit him , because if he gets angry he can give injections.......
