For. For an adult: top number below 120 and bottom number below 80 = healthy top number between 120-139 and bottom number 80-89 = prehypertension top number between 140-159 and bottom number 90-99 = stage 1 hypertension top number above 160 and bottom number above 100 = stage 2 hypertension the ranges for children and teenagers are typically lower and are based on age and height. People with other health problems besides high blood pressure such as diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease may require more aggressive control of their blood pressure.
What is a normal blood pressure for a 14 year old girl whose 5'5 and weighs 120 pounds and what's a high blood pressure?
See below. Normal blood pressure for 14-y-o girl at her height : systolic pressure rages from 110 to 126 mmHg; diastolic pressure 65 to 82 mmHg. Pressure of 127/83 or above is considered hypertension.
120. 120/80 is considered normal.
See below. Weight loss if overweight, watch your salt intake, exercise, and monitor your blood pressure.
No, see doctor. No. You should talk with your doctor since there are risks of developing pre-eclampsia even after delivery.
Many things. Stress, anxiety, pain, sleep deprivation, anger, during resistance lifting (some of the highest blood pressure recorded have occurred during power lifting maneuvers), missing blood pressure lowering medications. Each case needs to be look at in detail to have a better sense of the possible cause (s).
That depends. It depends on many factors. For example in diabetics it is a standard of care that they be on certain types of blood pressure medication even if their BP is normal. In patients who have had strokes or heart attacks there are medications that have been shown to potentially reduce the risk of subsequent such events and it behooves the patient to stay on medications.
Yes. Your blood pressure is now normal because of the meds. If you lose a significant amount of weight, your pressure may drop; if it does, then you can gradually wean off your meds, not before.
Weight (diet) Control, exercise and sodium restriction. After that its genetics.
My partner's just been told that they have high blood pressure 160/98. How fast can this be reduced to normal levels?
SOONER THE BETTER. Sooner than later. Treat BP and get controll ideally 130/83 or lower.
