IF we could do that people could control lowering it at a doctor's visit which never happens.

Heart rate is low.. and was with both the doctor and the nurse. 60. The doctor was just making excuses for the bad reading.
You really don't know what you are talking about regarding BP...

Anxiety and stress DON'T raise BP???

OF COURSE they do....that link is incontrovertible.....

As for not being able to "control" BP at a doctor's visit....unless you have uncontrolled hypertension, if your BP is transiently elevated due to stress, anxiety, or running up the stairs ( yeah that will transiently raise BP as well) you can absolutely "lower" your BP with simple techniques like rythmic breathing...

BP isn't a "static" number that should always be the same...as long as it is a normal range no worries.

Oh and as for "white coat hypertension" being debunked....

"White-coat hypertension occurs in 15% to 30% of subjects with an elevated office blood pressure,2,3 and the phenomenon is reasonably reproducible"
White-Coat Hypertension | Hypertension

Yeah that never happened either...."white coat hypertension" is ABSOLUTELY real

The Mayo Clinic disagrees with you.

As does the American Heart Association

Really? So decades of research on this topic which has been REMARKABLY consistent by the way was debunked sometime in the last 5 years?

But you are the only one who knows about it and you can't support it....yep...NUFF SAID

Well if it happens to you it must be SCIENCE!
The science shows it's common for blood pressure to drop significantly when it is taken after an office visit compared to before the visit. That was established by taking actual blood pressures on real live patients.

Being "unaware" has nothing to do with it.

I don't think Travelassie is the one who does not know what she is talking about.
