In brief: What is high BP?

A level of blood pressure that has been proven to shorten ones life and a level of BP that if treated prolongs ones life.
The best is to be below120/80. However for treatment we use 135/85 at home as high. At your age above 135/85 at home would be consider HTN that needs to be lowered. Always try DASH diet first.

In brief: BP definition.

The blood pressure is the resistance to blood flow through the body.
The higher number is the resistance when the heart pumps, and the lower number is the resistance when the heart relaxes and fills. High BP can lead to problems with the heart, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels and brain.
