What is a normal, healthy blood pressure for a 63 year old male.?

Less than 120/80: Normal blood pressure (BP) is less than 120/80 for all adults. While we don't treat most unless BP repeated greater than 140/90, we won't treat elderly (older than 60yo) until greater than 150/90 on 2 or more occasions. With that said, recent studies show no benefit to driving BP down below 120/80. Instead, taking enough meds to drop below 140/90 (or 150/90 if older) is fine. Don't forget lifestyl ...Read more

Why would I have such a dramatic spontaneous fluctuation in my blood pressure? What could be my problem? I' am a 28 year old male in fairly fit condition but for the last three years I have had episodes of dramatic fluctuations in my blood pressure. My no

The: The most important cause to rule out in situations like this is the presence of a tumor of the adrenal gland, called a pheochromocytoma. Even with these symptoms such a tumor is rarely found. The diagnosis can usually be made by analysis of a 24 hour urine collection or by blood tests.
Other possible causes of these types of symptoms include: panic attacks, labile hypertension, anxiety, hyperthyroidism, migraine headaches, central nervous system lesions, seizures, carcinoid syndrome, drugs (including cocaine, lsd, amphetamines, and others), and tyrosine ingestion combined with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (which are a type of antidepressant drug).
In many patients with episodic hypertension in whom a pheochromocytoma is not found the cause remains unknown, and treatment is difficult. The symptoms most likely involve activation of the sympathetic system, but the cause of sympathetic activation is unclear. It may stem from emotional factors that are repressed from conscious awareness.
This condition is sometimes called pseudopheochromocytoma, and most often includes rapid elevation of blood pressure; sudden onset of physical symptoms, such as headache, chest pain, dizziness, nausea, palpitations, flushing, and/or sweating; and a lack of emotional causes, such as fear or panic, although fear can occur as a result of the worrisome physical symptoms. Episodes can last from ten minutes to several hours; they can occur several times per day or only once every few months. Between episodes the blood pressure may be normal or mildly elevated. ...Read more

WHAT IS AN NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE FOR A 17.5 OLD YEAR MALE IS 140/78 OK.

A bit high: First off, let me congratulate you for checking your BP! Most 17 y.o.s do not know their BP! A healthy BP is usually below 120/80, so your diastolic pressure is fine, however your systolic (140) is high, and I would continue to monitor that. Generally if you can keep it below 140 you probably don't need to be on medication. Lower the salt in your diet and do aerobic exercise daily! ...Read more

59 year old male I take ramipril 10mg per day for high blood pressure & my blood pressure is still high 170/80 what do you recommend please?

BP still elevated: Your blood pressure is terribly elevated. You are ramipril (r) and ditiazem (d), both of which are not being given to you at maximum doses. Call your physician (p) and see if you can go to 20 mg of r and 360 mg of d daily. If that does not control your bp, your p may have to increase the number of BP meds you are taking. If your BP is still > 140 on 4 meds, consider secondary causes of hbp. ...Read more
