hubby's health check

It's confirmed. Hubby has diastolic hypertension.

So that's what the doctor said to him last Saturday when we went to a clinic to have him checked (supposedly for blood sugar).

It means the diastolic value of his blood pressure (bp) is beyond normal (maybe for his age and weight). When you say your bp reading is, for example, 120/90, the value after the "over" is the diastolic. So in the example, it's 90. And the 120 is the systolic value of bp.

The doctor, however, did not prescribe any med for him. Not just yet, he said. At his early thirties, he feels hubby's still too young to be prescribed with "maintenance." With proper diet and regular exercise, he said, this condition may be controlled, with his bp brought at normal acceptable value. He hoped.

And I hoped, too.

Now, the ball is in hubby's hand.
