A person is always responsible for their actions high school or college. ...Read more

For BP, is it healthier to actually have the proportion between the values of systolic and diastolic pressures to be a certain value? i.e. 120/80=1.5

For BP, is it healthier to actually have the proportion between the values of systolic and diastolic pressures to be a certain value? i.e. 120/80=1.5

Ratio not important: The ratio of systolic to diastolic pressures is meaningless and is not how doctors evaluate blood pressure. It's the actual numbers that are important. 150/100 also is a ratio of 1.5, but dangerously high. 110/73 has the same ratio but very low risk. Discuss your BP with your own doctor. 120/80 isn't bad, but s/he might suggest you monitor it to assure the diastolic isn't usually over 80. ...Read more

Those are fine: Your blood pressure can change with activity, stress level, recent food, etc. It will not be the same reading each time you check it. Even the skill and hearing ability of the person checking your blood pressure can have an impact on the reading. The above numbers are pretty good. Ideal is about 115/75. ...Read more
