what blood pressure number should you become concerned at?

Dr. Nour Baltagi

Blood pressure: It depends on age and hight , but for adults any systolic blood pressure above 130 starts to be considered on the high side, but it starts to be concerning when it is above 140-150 and diastolic blood pressure is above 95-100 and for long time without being addressed because it may lead to left heart hypertrophy and dysfunction over the years. Blood pressure for diabetics should even lower.
