    130/80 is now considered high blood pressure, according to new guidelines. 140/90 was previously defined as high blood pressure.

    I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

    FAA doesn’t disqualify for slightly elevated blood pressure, but AME may want additional evaluation depending on circumstances. Can’t recall the exact reading, but BP has to be substantially elevated for disqualification/SI.

    You can always go donate a pint of blood prior. That will lower your BP

    Just reading a few of Dacuj's most recent posts will get that blood pressure rising! So avoid the forums a few days prior to your medical exam. 👌🏼
