The usual blood pressure range can vary from person to person.
Depending on the general area where people live the average blood
pressure typical for a person can change.
Long ago the accepted systolic blood pressure was 100 in addition to
the age of the person; in these days that’s no longer the case. It has
been proven that even a person with 70 years can have a lower blood
pressure. The new accepted limit pressure that is considered healthy is
120/80mmHg. This new standard is better but is far from being the best
You cannot expect a young adult of 25 years to have the same blood
pressure as an 80 year old person. The body including the heart and the
arteries also age which means it cannot be as efficient as the body of
someone who is in his prime. Even with that a person advanced in age
can still manage to keep a relative low pressure
as long they take care
of themselves. The
standard for the best blood pressure range keeps
getting stricter. The preferable range for a healthy
blood pressure is
between from 90/60mmHg to 119/79mmHg. The limit of 120/80mmHg is often
considered prehypertension. A prehypertensive person is one that has a
big risk of turning hypertensive if they do not take care of
Having your blood
pressure measured frequently can help you in knowing
the magnitude of the lifestyle changes that you have to make if any.
Remember before heading to the doctor office you must avoid
and drinks with caffeine. You must also remain as calm as possible and
do not think about any stressful situation. Sometimes if you are too
stressed when the doctor takes the pressure reading it will be way
higher than your real pressure and he might prescribe you something
that you really do not need. Especially since blood pressure
medications have so many side effects that is better not to take them
unless is absolutely necessary.
Keep your system healthy
If you are over of what is considered the optimal blood pressure range
a couple of simple changes might be enough for you. Start eating
healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Reduce or eliminate if
possible all food high in cholesterol
and start exercising
This will surely take your blood pressure to an acceptable level.
