not a professional but your heart rate should be as close to 115/75 so for being so young it is VERY high not just a bit high! I would see a doctor asap. they are probably going to suggest you lose weight. Good luck and keep in touch! Ps eat lot of friut veggies beans whole grains and lean proteins!

Hello Shady,

Welcome to HealingWell and the Heart & Cardiovascular Disease forum.

I am very glad to hear you did see a cardiologist and that some tests have been ordered. Would you like to share which tests the Doctor has ordered for you?  Also were you started on any medication for your increased BP?

Do stick with us and know that we care.

Again a warm welcome,
