Typically, a blood pressure result of 120 over 80 is regarded as normal. The ESC Association contends otherwise, though.
The revised recommendations state that the normal blood pressure is actually 140 systolic and 90 diastolic (the top and bottom measurement numbers, respectively).
The blood pressure limit for diabetics is 130 over 80, and the elderly are excluded from this.
In the past, a blood pressure reading of 139 over 89 was regarded as hypertension, and the patient was urged to start taking medication right away to avoid suffering a heart attack or stroke as a result.
Less than 90 mmHg systolic and less than 60 mmHg diastolic is regarded as low blood pressure. Less than 80 mmHg systolic and more than 50 mmHg diastolic is considered extremely low blood pressure. If your blood pressure drops suddenly, you should see your doctor.
If low blood pressure does not result in frightening symptoms such an irregular heartbeat, lightheadedness, or headaches, it is not a cause for concern.
Knowing your normal blood pressure range is crucial because, should you ever experience hypertension, it may be easier to identify. Because hypertension can lead to major health problems, it has to be recognised and treated.
