Which is more important? Systolic or the Diastolic
im completely new to these forums and often have trouble sleeping because of HBP so I figured I’d give it a try.
I’m 31 years old and have been battling High Blood Pressure for roughly 1-2 years now. I’m fairly active with working out and dieting. Like anyone I have my cheat meals and consume alcohol on a every weekend or every other weekend basis which could be cut to help with lowering it.
my concern is that my blood pressures can range anywhere from 130/89 to 150/100 on any given day.
I read all the different charts of what counts as different stages of HBP. But my concern is one measurement more important than the other? I’ve had readings such as 135/98. So usually my systolic number isn’t as high as the diastolic number. I was wondering if anyone experienced similar readings and may know where’s it stems from.
How could the 2 different readings be that far off in comparison to what the charts say ?
any info would be helpful
