I am 41 and a triathlete. I just staarted getting high readings on my bp like 130/90 and becasue I am dibetic type 1, the docs are a little more concerned and wanting me to start some medications. Today I did a stress test and during excercise my bp went up to 182/90. So I am waiting a week to talk witht ecardiologist about the results and wanted to see what others had to say as a second an dsuch opinion.
What levels are safe and is 180/90 a normal reading during exercise?? Any thoughts on wht that means?? Is it safe for me to continue my training regimine??
having type 1 diabetes you may want to avoid stressful exercises. trying a more moderate level exercise is recommended. measuring your blood pressure during exercise isn't accurate, you may want to measure it several times throughout the day and take the average since our blood pressure changes based on your current health conditions.
