Default Hereditary health issues,

Hey guys,

I have been recording high blood pressure lines for roughly 2 weeks now (doctor asked me to keep track) and it hasn't been great. My lines have gone from 160/110 to 130/70.

It's a wild card at this point. I could be anxious, or it could be hereditary (highly common in my family along with heart disease).

I'm relatively healthy (6'0, 175 lbs), I try to back away from sugars and salts often but not to the point where it is unhealthy. I exercise.

It's still showing up high, and I'm not sure whether I should be disappointed in something I can manage, but not control.

I don't know. I've been asked to take blood tests and visit a cardiologist, which I will be doing in the next couple of days. I hope everything goes well, I'm trying not to think much of it.

Anyways, what kind of family 'ticks' run in your family? Any type of diseases or anything pretty cool? Just trying to cool down.

There are lots of things that are hereditary and if high blood pressure and heart disease run in your family it's a good thing that you are being careful with salt and sugar and getting exercise and seeing a doctor about it.
I've got my dad's long fingers and that's cool for playing the piano. What's not so cool is that my mum was one of those 1 or 2 percent of people who still wet the bed when they are teenagers and I unfortunately inherited that.
So some inherited things are pretty cool and some of them are not so cool! But if your blood pressure is inherited or not I hope you can get it sorted out.

Long fingers-that's actually a pretty cool thing to have. It must be pretty easy to play instruments and catch items, pretty cool

Went to the cardiologist and ran a few tests, did an ultrasound on the stomach and heart and everything looked very good. I'm still getting a kidney ultrasound in a day.

My blood pressure showed up as normal (124/70) once the doctor let me rest for a bit so I'm pretty happy.

I appreciate the discussion mate, really cool to know that there's just some things that come along with genes.

Looks like you are on the right track and doing what is right for you and your health. I agree that many things can be hereditary like heart disease and cancer. I think you are handling this just great and you will be fine.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

I inherited very low body fat from my mom. I inherited athleticism form both my mom and dad. I also inherited very good health from both and I'm grateful for that.

My friend had cold hands, which is usually a sign of stress. He has a difficult and nervous job. He was advised to consult a doctor for a better diagnosis, I also suggested that he try some CBD oil before doing this. For best results, order from Aifory, a leading supplier of Buy CBD products. Their solutions are chemically pure and THC-free, so you get all the benefits of CBD: strong soothing, and energizing effects.
