  • The 130/90 is high, worth keeping an eye on but not high enough to end you up in the hospital.
    The other number is low.

  • Normal is 120/80....mine was crazy high 183/110...I brought it down with exercise and omego oils...( fish oil) I take 6 a day, (2 in the a.m. ..2 in the afternoon, and 2 in the evenings) never go cheap on fish oil...only buy fish oil from Norway or Canada, they have stricter regulations than we do. (You can get it here though) Medical Dr's are stOOPid when it comes to supplements, whatever you do, please don't let him convince you to take a drug for it, yours isn't that high.
