What results are typical for high blood pressure in women over 70?

Similar for under 70: In general, the blood pressure ranges are not different for patients over 70, although in the past, some thought so due to "hardening' of the arteries. Ideal BP - less than 120/80. "prehypertension" - less than 140/90. Patients with diabetes or other certain conditions may have slightly different goal ranges. I wish you well. ...Read more

We worry about falls & fractures if too aggress ...Read more
