Is 141 93 High Blood Pressure
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
6 weeks pregnant. Blood pressure is 131/65. Pulse is 107. What does this mean? High blood pressure?
What's recommendation if my diastolic blood pressure is high (80-90) but systolic blood pressure is normal (115-125)?
NOW BP MAYBE OK: Asymptomatic chronic low blood pressure is generally not a problem. However, some possible causes: low thyroid, low cortisol, heart disease, dehydration, blood loss, allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), infection (sepsis). You may need lab tests to check these possibilites. ...Read more
A little, but..: This particular blood pressure reading would be considered lower than average for your age, but I am curious as to the situation surrounding the measurement. Have you felt dizziness, lightheadedness, and feeling like you are going to or actually passing out? A lot of blood loss? Also had you been drinking enough fluids? Some meds can cause this. Get checked if have you have any of these symptoms. ...Read more
Hello my mom is 50 years old, her high blood pressure is 10 and low blood pressure is 6 .is that normal?
Normal Not = Healthy: Normal only means Average. The numbers entered are not compatible with life. Be aware that most BP readings (especially all the digital gauges) are quite inaccurate & far less reliable than humans; just estimations; only represent a single heart beat for each number; from different heart beats. BP is hidden internal behavior which we adjust constantly, moment by moment. Read values yourself! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: On multiple issues. If you are symptomatic....Fatigued, lightheaded etc. If yes then it is too low. Also depends if you are taking medications to lower bp...Then it might be to low. Some people have BP in the 90's and that is normal for them. See your doctor. ...Read more
Symptomless disease: High blood pressure (BP) is a disease where the pressure in your arteries is too high, where the systolic is >140 or the diastolic is >90 (see my colleague's answer for an explanation of systolic and diastolic.) ideally the BP should be <130/80. High BP often is without symptoms but needs treatment to prevent heart disease & stroke. Untreated high BP can also lead to kidney disease and impotence. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Simple answer is, yes. That's not a value that's off the charts high ... But you definitely want to have it evaluated soon. There was a landmark study published awhile back that showed that men with normal BP (<120/80) lived roughly 7.2 years longer than men with high blood pressure. Hope that helps & Good luck! ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
