You Think That 120/80 Is A Normal Blood Pressure: You Are Completely Wrong!

Many people all around the world think that 120 over 80 is a normal blood pressure,but ESC Association issued new guidelines, according to which the normal pressure to 140 systolic (the top number in a blood pressure measurement) and 90 diastolic (bottom number).

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.
