Blood Pressure Management

High blood pressure (also called hypertension) indicate that your heart is working too hard to pump blood to the rest of your body.

  • Normal blood pressure is less than 120 on top and less than 80 on the bottom.
  • Prehypertension levels are 120-139 on top and 80-89 on the bottom.
  • High blood pressure, stage 1 is 140-159 on top and 90-99 on the bottom.
  • High blood pressure, stage 2 is 160 or higher on top and 100 and over on the bottom.
  • Low blood pressure, if below 90 over 60, most doctors consider blood pressure too low only if it causes symptoms.

The measurement seems to be a rough guide with some saying normal blood pressure for adults is generally in the range of 90/50 to 120/90 mm Hg

Hypertension ages people faster.
