The ankle:brachial ratio is often a marker for peripheral vascular disease though sometimes it can underestimate the severity of PVD when the abi is close to normal as a result of calcified and noncompliant peripheral art. ...Read more

What is the optimal range for blood pressure levels?

Less than 120/80: Normal blood pressure (BP) is less than 120/80 for all adults. While we don't treat most unless repeated BP 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

113/65 is good: There's a wide range of what's "normal". That depends on body type, family history, diet, exercise and underlying disease. What's normal for you may be low or high for the next patient. If your not passing out when you stand up and are not having any cognitive difficulties, I'd say your BP is great. ...Read more
