If You Think 120/80 Blood Pressure Is Normal, You Couldn’t Be More Wrong!

Everyone thinks this pressure is normal but of recently some new discoveries have proved this wrong. This comes from ESC Association claiming. As to them, normal pressure is 140/90 and the limit is even lower than this for those with diabetes.

This, does not apply for people with diabetes, in which the limit is 130 over 80, as in the older population.

Previously was thought that if someone’s blood pressure is 139 over 89 that that person is already in hypertensive condition and that this person needs to take meds immediately in order to avoid increased risk of heart attack or stroke.

Blood pressure generally considered to be low when either systolic blood pressure is less than 90 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure is less than 60 mmHg, but if your blood pressure is severely low — less than 80/50 mmHg — or you experience a sudden drop in blood pressure, consult your health care provider.

If you have low blood pressure and do not have any worrisome symptoms, such as dizziness, headaches, or an abnormal heart rate, it is probably not a concern.

Knowing your blood pressure is important part of health management, since undiagnosed hypertension puts you at risk for a variety of other conditions.
