What should a normal bp be for a 15 yr. old boy that is not overweight. He is 5/9"
and weighs around 130 lbs. I have a wrist bp monitor that I don't know how accurate it is, but he just took his bp and it was 129/116 and he is concerned that his
heart rate/pulse is around 80. He said he wasn't feeling well this morning when
he went to school and once he came home, he's been resting saying he thinks he
may have a virus. I wonder if I should make a dr. appt. for him.
