Blood pressure getting lower throughout the day.

Q: I have a blood pressure reading of 140/90 and it varies daily on mornings but in the afternoon it reads 126/80 to 119/76. I am 55 years old and female. Is this good? And should I be concerned? I some times feel dizzy in the mornings.

A: A blood pressure reading of 140/90 is not normal. That is the cut off line where treatment is recommended. You should see your doctor. Make sure you are exercising regularly and are eating a healthy diet. Lifestyle changes could keep you off medication.
