The other day, in my college physiology class, we did this lab. In one part of the lab, we had to test our blood pressure with a high-tech monitor. After testing a couple different times, I noticed that my blood pressure was at 144/93, which is classified as hypertension. I was not in any sort of abnormal condition, and the monitor was a pretty high end one, so I know the reading is accurate. I don't want to officially get this evaluated by a nurse or doctor because I would rather not make my parents pay for that. Also, I am worried that if I get officially diagnosed and if my health insurance finds out that I have this condition, my rates will go up. I would definitely not want my parents to pay for this. Would this occur in the event that I am diagnosed with hypertension?
