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
120/80: Hypertnsion falls into four general categories: normal 120/80, prehypertension with BP from 120 to 139 mm hg or a diastolic pressure from 80 to 89 mm hg. Prehypertension tends to get worse over time, stage 1 from 140 to 159 mm hg or a diastolic pressure ranging from 90 to 99 mm hg and stage 2 hypertension is a systolic pressure of 160 mm hg or higher or a diastolic pressure of 100 or higher. ...Read more

Hypertension: Elevation of either number suggests hypertension (high blood pressure). It is not unusual for the upper (systolic) or lower (diastolic) to go up disproportionately. Often younger people have high diastolic, and older people high systolic. Both are dangerous but systolic is worse. If values are above 140/90 that indicates stage 1 hypertension. Let me know if I can help further. ...Read more

BP reading: The more important number of your blood pressure is the systolic one, in your case, 124. The diastolic one, 74, is less important. Cardiovascular events occur more frequently and are related to the elevation of the systolic bp. Your blood pressure should be below 140 systolic if one is not a diabetic and at 130 if one has diabetes. Your pulse of 68 is fine and should go up with exercise. ...Read more
What happen if I check my blood pressure but the bottom number said 67 what does that mean and the top number was 127?
I took an at home blood pressure measurement that was around 140/100. I'm 27 years old, and I've heard that number is high. Should I be concerned?
120/80 normal: Yours is a bit high, but before you worry too much - test it at different times after activity, rest, etc. It can vary and if you are closer to normal often, think management before medication. Healthy diet, exercise, rest, yoga or breath meditation, stress reduction, etc. Can lower BP many times. Read about it and try a suggestion you like. If needed, have an exam and treatment. Best wishes! ...Read more
