1 doctor agrees

In brief: It varies

Blood pressure goals vary from one patient to the other depending whether they have heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, etc.
recent recommendation for the treatment of hypertension have been more lenient. For patient over the age of 60 without other medical problems, blood pressure medication is initiated once the BP is over 150/90. anything below is acceptable as long as it is not too low
