120/80: The "ideal" blood pressure is 120/80. In your case, your diastolic which is your lower number is a bit elevated as compared to your systolic which is your upper number. You do not want these 2 numbers to be too close together. For now it is okay but continue to follow your blood pressure and make sure the ratio is not getting close to 1.

My blood pressure is 112/65 is that good I feel like my bottom number is too low?

An excellent reading: An ideal blood pressure is 120/70 or less. While it is possible for a person to have too low a blood pressure, this rarely happens unless the patient is on too much medication to treat high blood pressure. A blood pressure of 130/80 or less is still fine. We usually start treatment for readings of 140/90 and higher.
In short, your reading is great. Don't touch a thing. ...Read more
