Question by Caroline: Is my blood pressure to high?
I’m 17 and took my blood pressure yesterday and it was 133. I’m 5’5 and like 135 and i didn’t know if that was alot. I’ve been feeling dizzy lately and getting these falling feelings. Would that have to do with my blood pressure? And why would somebody have a high or low blood pressure?
Answer by dioniferlini
Your blood pressure has two components: Systolic or maximum, and diastolic or minimum. Your blood pressure should read number / number. If you are 133 over 70, your systolic may be a bit high, but it is not really something to worry about. You should keep an eye on your minimum or diastolic blood pressure.
If you are feeling dizzy or not like yourself, then you need to go see your physician. Your doctor will be better able to advise you on whether your blood pressure is high, and your doctor can begin to look into why you are feeling dizzy and have a falling sensation. You should always follow your doctor’s advice, especially if you have not been feeling well.
High blood pressure is one of the warning signs of type 2 diabetes, but it is only one of many things to look for. There is actually a good list of symptoms to watch out for on the Type 2 Diabetes International website. By the way, a simple blood test will let you know whether you are a type 2 diabetic.
